Hotel Adlon Kempinski

A perfect recreation of the 1907 Hotel Adlon, this landmark building attracts a range of clientele from celebrities to families to business travelers. The airy marble lobby is topped by a stained-glass dome, and a piano player on the mezzanine Belle Etage accompanies guests taking tea by the Art Nouveau fountain. Tuxedoed waiters glide trolleys of cakes between the rust and lavender-colored sofas.

Amenity highlights: The Adlon Spa is decorated throughout in classical Greek style – its indoor pool, jetted tubs, saunas, plunge pool, and showers are all tiled with mosaics and presided over by frescoes. A beauty salon treats guests with La Prarie products. The intimate Lorenz Adlon restaurant serves French cuisine in the room where the German President gives his New Year speech.

Insider tip: Before the Adlon was destroyed in World War II, its winter garden hosted some of Berlin high society’s finest balls. These days the faithfully recreated conservatory, with its checked black-and-white marble floor, statuary, wrought iron, and velvet furniture is one of the hotel’s quietest spots, a perfect place to have a peaceful drink and watch the clouds pass over the glass roof.

Lorenz Adlon – Fine French dinners are served in this 28-seat restaurant, where every table is decorated with a bouquet of red roses. Cream brocade tablecloths and heavy gray-and-gold silk drapes add to the intimate, warm atmosphere provided by a corner fireplace. On long summer evenings, guests have a view of the floodlit Brandenburg Gate.
Adlon Stube – Traditional German dinners are served in a suitably rustic atmosphere.

Quarré – Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunches are served in this ground-level international restaurant overlooking Unter den Linden. Buffets are arranged around a giant marble urn in the green-marble-lined dining room under frescoed ceilings. Amid the columns, guests sit on green-and-red striped chairs or lounge on wicker by the windows.

Lobby Lounge & Bar – Drinks, snacks, and traditional afternoon teas are served from tea-trolleys wheeled by tuxedo-clad waiters. A full bar provides cocktails to the always-occupied sofas of the lobby and the quieter mezzanine Belle Etage.
