When this hotel opened in an 18-story Potsdamer Platz building in 2004, its aim was to become one of the country’s best. It may not have been entirely successful in its quest, but the growing pains have been addressed, and now everything is up to par, especially the very professional staff. A favorite of Americans, the Ritz-Carlton is for those who like their Europe served grand but also brand spanking new. The lobby is opulent, with marble columns, a sweeping staircase and plenty of brassy and gilded details. The 303 rooms including 40 suites, 25 clubs rooms and the Ritz-Carlton Apartment are light and spacious, and the best feature beautiful views of the Tiergarten.

Note: The Potsdamer Platz location is very central, at one of the spots where the former East meets the former West Berlin, but know that you won’t be doing a lot of walking in this busy area. There are some museums nearby, but to get to most of the sights and recommended restaurants, you will be taking taxis.

Who Should Stay

Families who can take advantage of the Ritz Kids Program and travelers who require five-star service.
