Sofitel Berlin Kurfürstendamm Hotel Luxury Room Review

03 Dec 2019

My final hotel stay during my first trip to Berlin was at the Sofitel Berlin Kurfürstendamm Hotel. The property is located on the west side of the city. Kurfürstendamm is one of the most famous avenues in Berlin and can be considered the Champs-Élysées of Berlin. The avenue is lined with lots of shops, restaurants, hotels, and entertainment options. Upon entering Sofitel Berlin Kurfürstendamm I was greeted by friendly faces and my excitement was building to see the room!

My Luxury Room was incredibly spacious and feature rich. The first feature I noticed was the creative location of the closet, which was a wooden column near the entryway. The room was lined with tall windows offering great views of Berlin. The Luxury Room featured a king-size bed, flat screen TV on a swivel, sofa, comfortable desk and chair, capsule coffee machine, kettle, and a modern Bose stereo with Bluetooth. Overall, I loved the design of the room and all of its features!

My Luxury Room was on the VIP club floor with access to the Sofitel Club Lounge. The Sofitel Club Lounge serves a continental breakfast, afternoon tea with sweets, as well as evening alcoholic drinks and a modest selection of canapes. Just like my room, I was very impressed with the views from the Club Lounge as well as the service.

There was a main hotel breakfast located on the 1st floor to consider as well. As with most hotels, the main breakfast had a much larger selection but that ambiance wasn’t as good the club lounge. It will ultimately come down to which feature guests prioritize.

Speaking of food and beverage, during my stay I also enjoyed a dinner at Restaurant Le Faubourg, which blew my mind. I was very impressed with the food and actually wrote an additional article showcasing Restaurant Le Faubourge, which you can read here.

On second floor of the Sofitel Berlin Kurfürstendamm Hotel were the fitness and relaxation facilities. Inside there were a sizable fitness center, steam room, and sauna. The fitness equipment is all modern and the steam and sauna are for both men and women. I definitely enjoyed the steam room!

Restaurant Le Faubourg Berlin Review: Mindblowingly Good

03 Dec 2019

I was very excited to finally make a trip to Berlin, Germany where I stayed at the Sofitel which you can read about a separate article here. On the ground floor of the hotel is Restaurant Le Faubourg. Restaurant Le Faubourg serves French cuisine with local ingredients. I had a strong hint that the food would be good when I arrived to see a full dining room at 6:30pm!

The dining room was elegant and had a romantic ambiance. During my visit the local newspaper was doing a special 5-course menu which I was thrilled to experience.

To get things started was a seaweed amuse bouche accompanied with a cold soup that made my heart race! That was all the confirmation I needed that more good things were yet to come!

Up next was one of my favorite items of the entire evening which was a smoked salmon. This dish was very well balanced. The perfect amount of salt on the salmon paired with the sourness of the vinaigrette and salad made me want to eat more and more. Super addictive! I joked with the waiter that I wanted a straw to get the last bit of vinaigrette.

Then arrived a milder dish which was an egg yolk confit. Even though it was more mild than the first dish, its delicate nature was admirable. A simple and stylish presentation as well!

For the main course I was served quail, jus of purple curry, celery, and Jerusalem artichoke. This was yet another perfectly executed dish! The feature that stuck out was the crisp outside of the quail and the juicy inside. Seriously great job!

Up next was a lovely goat cheese with macadamia nut, fig mustard, verjus, and apple. I’m normally not a huge goat cheese fan, but this was tasty! This was another indication that the chef incredibly talented.

To finish off the evening was a perfect dessert simply known as Caribbean Flavors which consisted of a rich cream paired with a sour fruit sauce. Expertly balanced, I could have ate this forever!

I’d like to note that throughout the evening the service was overall quite good, even though the restaurant was so busy. The wine pairing consisted of old world wines and this is the only part of the experience which I would have changed a bit. That being said, I absolutely adored the food at Restaurant Le Faubourg inside of the Sofitel Berlin. The chef and team clearly have tremendous talent and I highly recommend Le Faubourg if you love incredible food, ambiance, and service!

A Flawless Stay in Berlin: Grand Hyatt Hotel Review

28 Nov 2019

Prior to this trip I had only been to Germany once so I was very excited to finally visit Berlin for the first time! Berlin has a lot of interesting history but also nowadays is very is developing very rapidly. My first hotel stay in the city center was the Grand Hyatt Berlin, just near Potsdamer Platz. I took a train in from Poland and walked to the hotel which was about 25 minutes from the Berlin Hauptbahnhof (Berlin’s main train station.) The Grand Hyatt Berlin is located in Mitte, Berlin’s central borough, home of the Brandenburg Gate. From the hotel, everything was easy to visit!

I arrived in the mid-afternoon and met the friendly reception staff to easily check in. I secured a 1 King Bed with Club Access room which was located on the 7th floor. I couldn’t wait to check it out! It’d been a month or so since my last Hyatt property (which was the Park Hyatt in Dubai) but as soon as I entered, I was quickly enveloped with their styling that felt so familiar. Hyatt keeps their interior design modern, artistic, and luxurious. I love the way this 38 square meter room fit together.

The bedding was very comfortable and next to it were lighting controls to set the mood. The room also had a large table that doubled as a working desk, a lounge chair with ottoman, teakettle, and city view.

Up one floor from mine was the Olympus Club on the eighth floor of the Grand Hyatt Berlin. In the Olympus Club is a steam room, dry sauna, pool, and fitness center. The steam room, sauna, and showers are all shared by both genders. Everything was gorgeous and of the highest quality. A great facility indeed with friendly staff!

The Hyatt Club Lounge was on the same floor as my room and featured a continental breakfast, afternoon tea time, and evening cocktail and dinner period. The selection of items during each period was decent, not overwhelming or modest, a happy medium. Everything did taste great and the service was fairly good. That being said, as the lounge offers only a continental breakfast I would recommend going down to the Vox Restaurant on the ground floor for a more extensive breakfast.

At the main breakfast at the Vox Restaurant there was a huge selection on the buffet as well as the ability to order eggs any way you’d like. The staff were truly great and very friendly. It felt very familiar to cheerful American hospitality. The Eggs Benedict I had was just perfect! Well job Grand Hyatt Berlin!
