The Westin is on Unter den Linden, just down the street from the [node:169105]. Other attractions such as Checkpoint Charlie, the [node:169319], Bebelplatz and [node:169222] are within walking distance, and the hotel is surrounded by high-end shops and department stores. The Friedrichstrasse train station is just a short walk away and the Franzosische Strasse U-Bahn is right outside the door.
The 359 guest rooms come in a variety of types and suites. All feature Westin’s signature “Heavenly” beds – extra soft and comfortable, although perhaps too soft for some people – and a vast range of different kinds of pillows to choose from. Bathrooms feature black-and-white tiling and glass walled showers. Other amenities include bathrobes, slippers, flat-screen televisions with on-demand programming, minibars, coffeemakers and internet access for an additional fee of 19 euros per day. 24 hour service is at your disposal by pressing a button.
The hotel’s décor combines Belle Epoque and contemporary features with a lavish staircase leading up to the breakfast room dominating the lobby. There is only one entrance so, given the hotel's capacious interior, it may be a long trek to your room.
Eating and drinking
The Westin has several dining venues: the ‘Relish’ lobby restaurant, outdoor sidewalk café (summer only) and first floor breakfast room. Breakfast is good but expensive at 29 euros per person for the buffet. Instead you can go to the nearby Einstein café, which has a good selection of items and free WiFi. Room service is also available 24 hours a day and there are plenty of good restaurants in the surrounding area.
Leisure facilities include a fitness club, indoor heated swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, solarium and massage services.
