  • The friendly, plugged-in staff.


In a city the size of Berlin deciding where you want to be based is as important as picking the hotel. The Regent has one of the city’s loveliest locations, right next to the beautiful Gendarmenmarkt square. It’s in walking distance to Unter den Linden boulevard and the Brandenburger Gate but feels tucked away, discreet and more quiet.

It used to be the Four Seasons Berlin before Regent took over in 2004, and the common spaces and rooms have an upscale—if not terribly inspired—look and feel. The lobby—appointed with marble floors, silk-upholstered chairs and sofas, crystal chandeliers—is cozy rather than imposing, and it’s a wonderful place to linger over a cup of tea. The 195 comfortable rooms are classically decorated in tones of gold and beige, and the marble bathrooms are spacious with separate bath and shower, as well as L’Occitane products. The Regent has some of the largest rooms in Berlin (the smallest category starts at 430 square feet), and the best ones face the imposing buildings of the Gendarmenmarkt, including the French and German cathedrals and the Konzerthaus concert hall. It’s also in walking distance to such restaurants as Borchardt, Cookies n’ Cream and Lutter Wegner, and an easy walk to the cool neighborhood surrounding the Hackesche Höfe north of the river

The staff is warm and not overly stiff or formal, which adds to the nice ambience of this hotel. The Regent is also home to Berlin’s sole two-star-Michelin restaurant called Fischers Fritz, where expertly prepared seafood is served in an appropriately haute setting with wood-paneled walls, luminous chandeliers and well-chosen original art work. Fischers Fritz serves an excellent breakfast in the morning.

Who Should Stay

Like the Hotel de Rome, the Regent is in a perfect central location (not a small thing to consider when tackling a city that’s eight times the size of Paris). Rates can be more than reasonable given the hotel’s five-star amenities and location. Businessmen and families alike will enjoy the amenities.
