Time Out says
‘Design for the senses’ is the motto here. This is a truly lovely hotel, and rooms are often difficult to come by, but it’s well worth the fight. So much attention has been paid to detail: from the moment you enter the lobby, with its soothing colour scheme and wonderful lighting, creating an atmosphere of subdued elegance with its modernist aesthetic. This carries into the rooms, each beautifully styled, with perhaps the best bathrooms in the city. Even the conference rooms are spectacular, and the hotel’s ‘wellness’ area is complete with plunge pools, gym and meditation room. In summer you can wind down on the sun deck high above the surrounding rooftops overlooking the splendid domed cathedrals of Gendarmenmarkt.
