When: April 2018
Duration: Two nights
Room booked: King Bed Club Superior Room
Room upgrade: Club Deluxe
Free drink on arrival: Received an e-mail from the property with an invite to check in at the Club lounge. For some reason I forgot this and checked in downstairs – this is my own fault. Someone checked us in that was a new employee so it took a while before he handed over our room card. When we arrived at the 8th floor we were welcomed by a very friendly club floor manager.
Newspaper: Available in the lounge
Bathroom amenities: Agraria (large bottles instead of the small ones)
Ambassador amenities: two pralines, a jar with mixed nuts, fruits and one bottle of still water and one with sparkling water
Overall experience: Excellent
I booked for one night and used my ambassador certificate for an additional free night and I am very happy with the outcome…
I do not have any complaints about the room. It didn’t feel outdated, despite some other reviews about the rooms of IC Berlin on the internet. It was spacious, big bathroom, a nice sofa and a large flat-screen. The coffee machine is inside the bathroom, a little bit strange.
Maybe one small complaint: not all TV channels worked as expected. But, we didn’t want to spend a lot of time in front of the TV. Instead, we preferred to spend our time in the lovely swimming pool and jacuzzi they had. Sauna was also available for free if we’d like. There was a turn-down service but we missed it. We had a flyer on our door to call before 16:30 if we would like turn-down service but we found out after 17:00.
The best about this hotel is definitely the lounge. The breakfast was exceptional. There were sufficient snacks all day and the canapés were really nice too. We spent so much time in the lounge. The day we checked out, we kindly asked if we could stay in the lounge in the evening as we had our flight in the evening. They allowed us to do so without any hesitation! If I ever have to be in Berlin again, I know where to stay ;). Enjoy a few pictures of the breakfast options and the lounge below!
