  • Modern touches include free Wi-Fi and bedside control panel
  • Marble bathrooms with soaking tubs and heated floors
  • Indoor swimming pool
  • Modern fitness center

  • Fee for Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

The Hotel Adlon Kempinski is an elegant, classic hotel with a rich history. Its predecessor was one of the most popular hotels in Europe through World War II, hosting guests such as Charlie Chaplin and Josephine Baker. The original building was demolished, but after the fall of the Berlin Wall, a building inspired by the original was built on the same location near the Brandenburg Gate. This 382-room hotel still attracts A-list clientele - this is where Michael Jackson dangled his baby son from a balcony in 2002. Luxurious rooms have heavy drapes, four-poster canopy beds, plush couches, and fresh cut roses. Marble bathrooms offer soaking tubs and heated floors. These inviting rooms, combined with the hotel's impressive amenities - an indoor pool, full spa, fitness center, and variety of restaurants - make this one of the best picks in Berlin.
