Stayed for a 2 night stay to celebrate my birthday, and after staying in east berlin last time round, fancied something different [less sightseeing, more a relaxing break]. Chose the NH Kurfurstendamm due to its location - 100m from Savignplatz and also just off the main Kurfurstendamm.
Hotel is a modern design, very smartly styled. Hotel lobby was welcoming, though check-in staff whilst friendly wasn't overly welcoming. There is a hotel bar on the ground floor but didn't see anyone drinking in there during out stay.
Room was modern, clean and an adequate size. Usual case however of two singles pushed together to give appearance of a double.
Breakfast [included in our rate] was of a very high standard. Usual array of juices, tea, coffee, pastries, cold meats, cereals and a hot breakfast buffet.
Overall, our first stay in a NH hotel and we were highly impressed.
Tips - If travelling from Schonefeld airport, buy a 3E zone ABC ticket for the RB14 or RE7 express train. It won't stop at Savignplatz but does stop nearby at Zoolischer Garden]. You can then jump on a local S train to Savignplatz on the same ticket, or it's a 10min walk to the hotel along the Kurfurstendamm.
Savignplatz station - handy for using s-bahn for trips around Berlin.
Savignyplatz - a variety of good restaurants [alot of Italians, few Indians etc] and bars around the square, alongside the station, and also on the adjancet Bleibtrau strasse. Hefners bars and one other bar on the south east corner were particularly lively!
"East" on Grolmanstrasse [same street as hotel, but the other side of Savignyplatz] No23 I think - excellent oriental food - baked beef in Seczuan pepper was amazing!
"Bleibtrau cafe" on Bleibtrau strasse - nothing posh, like a little french bistro but serving wholesome german food - pork fillets, schnitzel etc. Had a good couple of hours in there. Helpful staff!
Lunch - Try Vapiano - think Ask or Pizza Express. As you enter, you are given a swipe card. Head to the counters of whatever you want, order, the staff will swipe card and then cook pasta/ pizza dishes to order and serve at the time, or give you a pager to come back. Same with the bar to get drinks. Odd, but very workable idea - pizza was excellent and Bitburger on draft !! Cheap, good, simple Italian food.
