Berlin five-star hotels

Adlon Kempinski Berlin
Kaiser Wilhelm II was a regular guest at the Adlon when his drafty palace got cold. That hotel was later torn down by the East German authorities, but today's version--built in 1997--seeks to recapture the luxury of yesteryear. Its Lorenz-Adler restaurant earned a Michelin star in 2001. The hotel is on Unter den Linden by the Brandenburg Gate.

Each room has a unique decor at the Palace, a modern luxury hotel close to the Kurfürstendamm and the Tiergarten. Guests are entitled to free use of the thermal baths, sauna, and solarium at the nearby Europa Center.

Schlosshotel im Grunewald
"Intimacy" is the keyword here; the Schlosshotel (German for "castle hotel") has just 55 ultra-luxe rooms in a 1914-vintage private palace that was restored under the direction of international designer Karl Lagerfeld. The hotel is in the Grunewald forest, west of the city center.

Swisshôtel Berlin
This modern luxury hotel, which opened in 2001, is affiliated with Leading Hotels of the World. Its 316 rooms are decorated in a  contemporary style with original artworks by the architect, Markus Lupertz.

Kempinski Hotel Bristol
Shoppers will enjoy the Bristol, which lies directly on the Kurfürstendamm. The hotel began its life as a wine tavern in 1872; the current structure was built with Marshall Plan aid in 1952 and is the seat of the upscale Kempinski hotel chain.
