Convenient, Pleasant Stay in Heart of Berlin
Posted Dec 20, 2016 on Hotels
The NH Berlin Kurfürstendamm was the perfect place to stay for a few nights. Although it is a few hundred feet from one of Berlin’s major thoroughfares, the immediate street is quiet and uncongested.
Its place on Grolmanstraße is ideal. The street is commercial and residential, with shops, restaurants and bars occupying much of the ground floor. Trees line the street and sidewalks are ample. Just a short distance away is Savignyplatz with an unusually high density of decent Italian restaurants, and one of the world’s best known art and architecture bookstores, Bücherbogen.
The front desk staff were very welcoming. They spoke perfect English, and seemed genuinely interested in their guests’ enjoyment of their stay.
Breakfast was very good, with a full selection of breads, charcuterie, fruits, and other breakfast dishes. Items were replenished regularly and the staff was on top of greeting guests with coffee and order-taking. Overall, the quality of the breakfast, including service, was relaxing, and most enjoyable.
The guest bedrooms and bathrooms were well appointed, with furnishings and accessories in good condition, clean, and well presented. The rooms were also of a decent size––no sense of being cramped in a typical “infill” European hotel.
I would definitely recommend this hotel for business travelers or vacationing couples. It represents good value, for a safe, central, professionally managed, and well-cared-for stay.
