If Berlin is not on your travel map yet, do put it on. This hotel deserves a special trip just to experience it. It is beautiful, luxurious and very romantic.

Adlon is a Grand Hotel is a true sense. It is situated in a palatial building overlooking Brandenburg Gate (best location in town).

Adlon Kempinski simply can’t be faulted and that is a huge statement from a discerning Lux Traveller.


Rooms & Suites

Even standard rooms are beautiful but if you are a real Luxie go straight for the Brandenburg Gate Suite – my favourite!

This suite is superb. Large bedroom and living room, very plush and modern at the same time. Suite has a lot of nice touches, my favourite being a beautiful fireplace that your butler will kindly put on for you on a cold night.

Cuddle up with your loved one on a plush sofa with a glass of chilled champagne and strawberries with the best view in Berlin as your backdrop. Very romantic!


Suite at the Arlon Kempinski

The service in the hotel is excellent! Polite, polished and friendly. 100% Lux experience.

Every time we walked into the lobby, one of the front desk staff recognized us, greeted by the name and offered a complimentary glass of Rose Champagne at the bar – nothing like I’ve seen before. We were celebrating a special occasion on the trip and the staff made sure we felt like royalty during the whole stay at the hotel.

The atmosphere is very old world glamorous & inviting. Lobby bar is the place to see and be seen. Everyone is beautifully dressed, ready for a night out or relaxing after a busy day of sightseeing or shopping.

The Spa – excellent top notch treatments. Probably I’ll go as far as to say some of the best I experienced in a European hotel. Very professional, friendly and accommodating.


Breakfast & Dinner

Both are exceptional. Excellent selection at breakfast – anything you can dream of.

Dinner Quarre offers beautiful gourmet a la cart menu for dinner. Again – atmosphere, service & food – we sublime.

Adlon is also home to a famous 2 Michelin star restaurant Lorenz Adlon Esszimmer. Dinner here would be a special treat for any occasion.

While we are on the topic – do let the hotel know before you arrive if it is your special occasion – they will go out of their way to make your stay memorable, like little gifts in the room, rose petals on the bed and other surprises.

Adlon Kempinski has mastered a skill of small touches that make all their guests feel very special.

Adlon Berlin is a perfect romantic weekend destination or a Valentine’s day treat!
