Grand Hyatt Berlin

BERLIN IN GENERAL

After my stays in Bruges and Antwerp I needed a little dose of big pimpin American style, and I wasn’t willing to roll the dice. The Grand Hyatt did not disappoint! Modern and big and fun and right in the middle of Potsdamer Platz, which was a great location for me. This hotel hit the spot.

The rooms were pretty perfect. Huge with dark wood, perfectly soft beds, and a gigantic bathroom with a bath, a shower (which was kind of in the bath area but still separate and cool), a separate toilet stall, glass and mirrors everywhere, it was bad ass. The shades in the windows were remote controlled. The TV, which rested strangely on the low TV stand and wasn’t nearly high enough, was big and modern and it had a ton of channels, including the option to switch over to international satellite channels. Pay per view was old and clunky but there was adult and weird 24 hour action that included like 2 movies. The mini bar was plentiful and used often…but where’s the red wine man! Room service was 24 hours and like you could get just about anything 24 hours, including breakfast (though I did get a salad for lunch one day and it was laughably small).

Notes

-The bars and restaurants are very popular and hip. The Vox bar gets super busy and I would of had a great time if that idiot bar manager hadn’t swindled me on my wine bottle purchase. Damn you rottwein!
-The pool and hot tub and saunas (the saunas were not unisex) on the rooftop were perfection, except for all the people! I swam laps, I showered, I relaxed looking across that cool skyline. They really did a nice thing on that top floor (which housed the spa as well).
