Hotel Adlon Kempinski

Hotel Adlon Kempinski

Located steps from the neoclassical columns of the Brandenburg Gate, the Hotel Adlon Kempinski’s prestigious location is matched only by its amenities and services. The storied hotel has long defined the height of opulence in Berlin, hosting everyone from Michael Jackson to Thomas Edison. Though it was destroyed at the end of World War II, the building was restored to its former magnificence and reopened in 1997.

Designed with extravagance in mind, the warmly lit lobby features a large Murano glass chandelier, an ornate elephant fountain and dark wood and marble throughout. You’ll also find two Michelin-starred restaurants, an expansive spa and a coffee shop in the hotel.

The old-world feel extends to the rooms and suites through mahogany and cherry wood furnishings and flashes of gold. All the rooms are spacious and boast views over the square or inner courtyard.
