Introduction

This was a business stay with some colleagues, during an exhibition at a surgeons congress, from 19th to 21st of October (some of us staid till 23rd and 25th for prolongated weekend).

My second stay here. The facility has been built some years ago already but is like new. Super rooms for that category and price (upper midscale, rates EUR 93 to 109 that period of time, depending how far in advance booked. Cancellation period was 14 days maybe as I booked many rooms, normally it is 1 day in advance)). Rates are EUR 69 till 139 in Nov. Rooms spacy enough if you are out all day.

Location

The location is super central in Berlin City West, famous "Paris Bar" some steps around the corner at Kantstrasse (you see the Waldorf Astoria from there), and 5-10 mins walk to Waldorf Astoria Berlin and KaDeWe shopping center.2 mins walk to Kudamm, which is parallel to Kantstrasse, Uhlandstrasse, where the hotel is located, is connecting both streets. 5 mins walk to e.g. Savignyplatz square, where you find many good and trendy restaurants with all kind of cuisine.

Parking

The parking facilitiy is for 15 cars only we were told, but there are many public 24h garages around, e.g. at Stilwerk shop - just crossing Kantstrasse, 10 Euros per day as far as I remember, or you park at the Uhlandstrasse, what I did, which is free from 10pm to 9am, and it is a safe area.

Check In

We all got upgrades to higher floor rooms on my Gold status and vouchers for a snack (sweet or salty) and drink (non alcoholic) at the bar.

Room

Comfortable queenbed. Seperate shower (no bath tube). Cleanliness German. Many TV channels. Comp. internet w-lan with good speed for Skype also. The city train (S-Bahn) beside the hotel is no problem, none of us was disturbed by it.

Service

The young front desk teamwas sympathic with slight Berlin touch (straight, precisly, friendly), helpful and professional at all. The breakfast team was quick and attentive.

Breakfast

Breakfast was described in the Flyertalk thread of this hotel earlier. Many hot and cold choices in a quality which made me nearly think to be in an upscale real Hilton.

Overall

My colleagues were positively surprised about the hotel (I knew it was a good choice), which is a little bit hidden between the main roads, and the central location, and the price. They, used to stay at hotels for business, did neither expect this good, nearly upscaleexperience (some were even spoilt as from Switzerland), nor heard about the Hampton brand before. I myself, three more stays away from being Diamond again after many years, look forward to more Hamptons in Germany, and my next stay at Hampton Frankfurt this week. I would rate it clearly over the Holiday Inn Express brand from the overall stay experience.
