Finally: Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts has unveiled its second European luxury hotel opening in recent months—the highly anticipated (and long-delayed) Waldorf Astoria Berlin.
The hotel has 232 guest rooms and suites across 32 floors (as well as the highest presidential suite in the whole city on the top floor), and is part of the new Zoofenster skyscraper, designed by German architect Christoph Mäckler. The hotel’s interior design has been conceived by Parisian agency Inter Art Etudes with plenty of Art Deco flare.
Room with a view: The Presidential Suite affords 360-degree views of Berlin’s City West—even from the bathroom. The suite has two bedrooms, each with bathrooms. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and the second is equipped with a twin. The suite has a kitchenette, two loggias, Jacuzzi, private entrance lobby, separate office and service access. Nice Touch: A grand piano is one of the highlights of the suite, for those channeling their inner Beethoven.
The hotel’s location puts guests on the doorstep of some of the city’s most famous tourist attractions, including the historic church, Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche, built as a memorial to Kaiser Wilhelm I, the first man to become emperor of a united Germany. The city’s premium shopping boulevard, Kurfürstendamm, is only minutes away and is home to many designer fashion houses.
Guests can choose from five different dining venues, the most exclusive of which is Les Solistes, where the menu was thought up by Michelin-starred Chef Pierre Gagnaire.
Be sure to visit the Guerlain Beauty Spa, the only Guerlain outpost in Germany.
