The word coming from across the pond is that the Kempinski Hotel Bristol Berlin has a new Presidential Suite that rivals another large luxe accommodation in the city, Ritz-Carlton Berlin’s Apartment, which Luxury Travel Advisor featured in March. With about 5,382 square feet of living space in Kempinski’s Presidential Suite, we understand why.
The suite has five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, two living rooms, a pantry on each floor and two boardrooms, which can be transformed into additional bedrooms if needed.
No detail has been spared in the bathrooms, which have cool design touches such as LCD TVs embedded in the mirrors and walk-in rain showers that literally glow with illuminated water jets.
From a security standpoint, this Presidential Suite is Fort Knox. All corridors can be covered by closed-circuit TVs, while a separate entrance is available and accessible only to guests staying in the suite.

Now, with the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall quickly approaching, the hotel, and the city as a whole, has stepped up in anticipation of the celebrants expected to descend on Berlin in November. The Kempinski Hotel Bristol Berlin is offering a package for the festivities: one night’s accommodations, buffet breakfast, free museum admission and a ticket for the exhibition, The Story of Berlin (www.story-of-berlin.de/en), and complimentary use of the hotel’s wellness spa.
