Rated 4 out of 5 by Gmwaldron Great location in Berlin
The hotel is very well located. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the hotel is quiet despite being in the center of Berlin. I was very dissappointing that a hotel that I would expect caters to business travelers does not offer free Wifi in the rooms. Despite the purpose of my visit being leisure, I still needed to be connected for purposes of finding my way around Berlin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Luvtrvl Good Location Surrounded by Construction
Very nice hotel in shopping area of Berlin. Centrally located within walking distances of Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie, Berlin Wall, Jewish Museum and Holocaust Memorial. Hotel is warm and well maintained with some old world charm. We stayed in junior suite and it was quite lovely and well-appointed. It doesn't appear hotel receives too many English-speaking patrons as few of the "behind the scenes" staff were comfortable speaking anything but German. Caution: spa services are somewhat lacking. Facials were "different" from anywhere I've been and not worth price. Daughter had "mani/pedi that took over two hours that did NOT include foot massage or nail polish. When notified front desk staff, they credited 50€ but still wasn't worth it! Massage by Johann was amazing! Food in hotel caters to Germans and is overpriced. All said and done, would stay again minus mani/pedi and facials, and would eat elsewhere.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Smartfoneaddict Great location & Ambiance
Great location, great lobby decor/ambiance and pretty good room comfort. A bit disappointed though: No coffee/tea in room; heavinly bed not as heavinly as elsewhere (particularly pillows); no Platinum room upgrade nor were we asked about our preferred Platinum guest amenity! :(.
(Ongoing construction on Friedrichstrasse and Unter Den Linden is a bit of a pain right now)

Rated 4 out of 5 by SooMoo Superior location in Berlin City Center
Located at Unter den Linden and Friedrichstraße. Easy walk to most locations of interest incl govt, excellent access to Berlin's great public transportation system.
Traditional German but modern style.
Ongoing underground construction not a problem except normal daytime working hours.
Not a good experience with bathroom servicing this time,
We'll be back in a week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pamela3901 Among the better world hotels
I've been a travel-writer for a couple of decades. The Sheraton Grand is right up there with the better world hotels - and I'm talking about the famous ones in Paris, New York and the like. Herr Concierge is amazing, the Sans Souci Suite is over the top, and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. On top of it all, the location is perfect....so enjoy!

Nice facility and perfect location in Berlin Mitte. Close to many cultural and historical attractions as well as shopping. Underground just in front of the door

Rated 3 out of 5 by Georges64 Very strict check-in/out time policy
After having landed in Berlin quite early I wanted to check-in as early as possible. The staff was very kind but the check-in time policy was not flexible at all. I could get in to my room at 12.30 only after waiting 4 hours in the lobby. On the other other hand I got only one hour "extra" upon late checking out. The sauna and internet are also extras....

Rated 4 out of 5 by Konsta Good hotel
Very clean room with what would have been nice views if it wasn't for the construction. Good but small gym. OK bar. Great staff who brought ice to the room, went to shut down a party next door that didn't stop despite of me going to the door. Very helpful concierge. Only con I can think of we're the beds: too soft and caused back pain. Great location.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LauSer central location
the only point to make is about room 211 I occupied. A deluxe city view had been reserved. unfortunately, I faced a wall with no view whatsoever. In addition the room is located right above the goods receiving area and I was woken up every morning by the noise even though you have doubleglazing.
the bar, breakfast and room service were all OK.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Luci Generally great but no air humidifier
I like the hotel and I also think the employees are friendly, responsive and attentive. The only issue I have is that air in the rooms is too dry. Skin and hair suffer from it and either you make sure that enough air humidifier are available (which was not the case last week) or you need to adjust the air condition in general.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Neodoc Great hotel in central Berlin
Nice rooms with excellent bath but no ice (I know it's it Europe but a lot of us ice-loving Americans stay there!). Central location was nice but there was a huge construction project going on next to the hotel so walking was kinda iffy but the noise was not a problem once inside the room. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Wonderful relaxed stay in Berlin's centrally located hotel.
Despite roadworks outside on the Friedrichstr. there was little noise on the 4th floor this night.
Probably my 20th stay in this hotel over the years and never really anything to complain about.
Things run as they should so full marks...keep the standard :)

Very nice hotel. but we unfortunately had the room on the 3 rd floor over looking the construction site . They made a lot of noise trying to drill a cylinder into the earth. I had reserved the room over 2 months ago. One would think they would make arrangements, so no body use that room.
Otherwise very nice hotel.

The Westin Berlin is a MUST. It is in a perfect location, you can easily walk to main sights or access public transportation steps away from hotel. THE STAFF IS WONDERFUL, they make you feel at home upon entering hotel. We have stayed there twice and will visit again soon...breakfasts are delicious too!

Rated 3 out of 5 Old and needs to get up to date
We stayed over New Year. That there was no free WiFi was very disappointing. The charge would have been 7.50 Euro for one hour. On the other side the breakfast was amazing. In summary it feels like a conference hotel which got a little bit old over the years and is not up to date with the technology.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Travelbird Oasis in the middle of a big construction site
When I arrived and saw all the construction going on outside I thought - oh no.. but I had a quiet night and could even enjoy sitting outside to have a drink in the evening. The rooms are spacious and are comfortable. The warm welcome of the SPG staff gave was really nice and I hope to be back soon.

We have stayed several times at the Westin Grand Berlin and each time have been very pleased with the service. This April, my husband forgot some clothing in the room and when I called the hotel, they easily arranged to ship the items back to our home address. This is our favorite hotel in Berlin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SaaM Average Hotel
For business travellers looking for efficiency and top notch services, this hotel does not meet expectations. Absolutely no mention of starwood membership; gold level means nothing. Gym equipment old and badly designed. This seems to be geared towards large tourists groups and quick turnover.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Marco63 A very convenient hotel
This hotel is quite well located and very comfortable, although no room upgrade for SPG Gold
The only issue I have is that the day I made my reservation on the SPG internet site breakfast was advertised as free, but ... it was not and was charged to me at the rate of 30 euro per day

Rated 5 out of 5 by WoMa2013 The Westin Grand is my home in Berlin
This hotel is a perfect spot to stay in Berlin in terms of atmosphere, service and location. The wonderful staff is one of the strengths of the Westin Grand. The breakfast buffet is a must-see and must-taste. I already am a constant guest and will be for my further Berlin stays.

We loved the central location of this hotel in Mitte. We were ten minutes away from the Brandenberg Gate and the Tiergarten. The staff was excellent especially for English speaking visitors whose German is limited. They were consistently helpful and knowledgeable.

This property is beautifully maintained and in a great location for sight seeing. The staff is genuinely friendly and helpful. This hotel is a wonderful example of the spg brand and I look forward to staying here when I return to Berlin. I highly recommend this property.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Marie75 Typical comfortable business hotel
Very comfortable business hotel, which is what I was looking for. The room was quite nice and comfortable. The desk and dining staff were pleasant.
I found the conceierge staff unaccommodating, if not downright rude --certainly as compared to other Westins I have stayed out.

Very warm welcome at reception. The room was excellent and bed very comfortable. The highlight however was the ability to rent sports clothing and shoes for use in the gym. This is an excellent idea especially for business travellers who want to carry only hand luggage.

The staff at this hotel were very polite and helpful across all areas with which I interacted (front desk, concierge, business center, restaurant).
It has a great location for my business needs and for off-time site-seeing.
This is now my preferred business hotel n Berlin.

I stayed here for 5 nights in June 2012. Booked cash + points - very good deal and was upgraded to a very nice suite on the top floor of the hotel. Location was excellent (this was my first time in Berlin). Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Berlin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GShosh the comfort of being right tin the middle with top quality
The interest sites of Berlin spread all over. Being right in the middle- Fredrich and Unter Den Linden- gives you access to all walking or commuting- with ease. Add to that a facility like the Westin and you can rest assure with your vacation / sightseeing.

My first time at the Westin Grand but it won't be my last. Comfortable, spacious rooms and excellent service especially from the concierges. Good breakfast. I liked the location although there was a lot of construction going on.
