Savoy Hotel Berlin
Erected in 1929, and a favourite of author Thomas Mann, this is a smart, stylish hotel with lots of low-key flair. The rooms are elegant and understated, but for a little zing in the suites, such as the white Greta Garbo suite and black marble Henry Miller suite. The Weinrot restaurant serves a well-thought-out modern menu. A further bonus is the location, set back just far enough from the hustle and bustle of Zoologischer Garten to be quiet and convenient.

The Savoy ! Berlin is a wonderful, tradional hotel. It encompasses all that is good in the world of high expectations. The service is excellent whether one has a minor question to be answered by reception, need help with your phone (because you are a technophobe like me), or need a waitress rather quickly because your companion has caught his sleeve on his coffee cup and overturned the lot! The rooms are comfortable, even the singles with plenty of space. The bathrooms are spacious, clean and well-presented. Showers have good power. The only slightly negative comment about the bathroom is that the top of the bath is high so getting out for older people is not as easy as it should be. However there is a rail to hold onto and so avoid accidents.

On the sixth floor there is a roof terrace where quiet moments can be snatched amid the bamboo pots.

Breakfasts are a delight in the beautiful dining rooms dripping with chandeliers. There is a choice of seating ; either in the main dining room itself, or in the adjoining room where the cold drinks and prosecco are laid out, in front of the hotel on the actual street in the sunshine or in the garden area beyond the drinks room. The buffet breakfasts themselves are well thought out. One table has hot food. One table has an assortment of bread, rolls, croissants and pain chocolat. In the centre of the room one can find the cheeses, smoked salmon, salamis and sliced beef. Fresh tomatos and sliced peppers are also available.The other central table has fresh fruit, a delicious Bircher muesli on top of which you can scatter your chia seed if that is your inclination. Plenty of jams too. In other words, you won't go hungry.

The only disappointment is the 'fitness room' which houses three pieces of equipment only. The plus side is it has ice-cold water on tap.

The fresh apples at reception are a nice touch. It feels good to step inside the Savoy and be transported to a slower, slightly grander way of life.
