Bottom Line

The Eurostar Berlin Hotel is an upscale, contemporary property within walking distance of several top sight, shops, and public transportation. Its 221 rooms are elegant and spacious, with expansive views of the city -- but guests complain of noise from the lobby, bar, or nearby train station. The pool has a dramatic atrium ceiling and a wall of windows overlooking the city. Live piano music and all-day snacks encourage guests to linger in the lobby. And a street-level dining room serves a pricey buffet breakfast, while the hotel has a chic bar with a comprehensive cocktail menu as well as a restaurant serving Mediterranean-inspired fare. Other amenities include eight fully equipped meeting rooms and a small fitness center. For an even more trendy, design-conscious property, travelers may prefer the 25hours Hotel Bikini Berlin.

Eurostars Berlin Hotel

Scene

Upscale hotel attracts European business and leisure travelers

The Eurostars Berlin opened in 2011, its restrained elegance attracting business travelers and tourists who appreciate understated elegance at a somewhat cheaper price than the competition. It has a glass and masonry facade and a dramatic lobby with a soaring ceiling and Pop Art paintings of Marilyn Monroe and Mona Lisa, as well as big, dimpled silver sculptures. There are clusters of contemporary chairs and sofas with the latest newspapers and snacks like chips and fruit on a side table near the sleek, white marble reception desk. Guests tend to gather in The Corner, the hotel's vibrant lounge that's known for its "classic and eccentric" menu of cocktails. Oxblood club chairs and small round tables fill the space, which has a bar with white mesh stools and dramatic uplighting on its glass and stainless steel bottle display shelves. Live music from the lobby's grand piano adds to the upscale ambiance.

Central location on Friedrichstrasse, across from railway station

Well serviced by public transportation, the hotel is across from the Berlin Friedrichstraße railway station and right by a subway station, as well as bus and tram stops. It is three blocks east of Wilhelmstrasse and the old government quarter. Guests can walk to the Pergamon Museum in nine minutes, or, in 10 minutes, be at the Deutsches Historisches Museum. Other top attractions that are within walking distance include the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag Building, both a 14-minute walk away.
