We stayed over for two nights end of April and got the wonderful roof top room 1109 with an amazing landscape view. Overall service was impeccable as expected from a Ritz-Carlton, but what really made our stay and made us feel unique and cared of, was the 'mixologist' barman Arnd Heissen (and Peruan colleague Hernando).
Go to the 'Curtain Bar' and let him ask you a few questions about your 'likes & dislikes': he will come up with a fairytale in a glass. Away from 'classical' drinks, he prepares himself his syrup-elixirs by infusing natural spices. You can see them safely preserved in apothecary glasses carefully aligned on the wall. The complexity of his drinks could be compared to a very good wine or a starred chef meal: aromas and tastes blend perfectly giving you the impression of traveling through your senses.
To make it short: his cocktails are worth the stay/bar visit!
About the rest of our stay, some points can be improved: I must admit that we were a bit disappointed by the breakfast (overcooked scrambled eggs, washy coffee, limited choice, no gluten-free bread), specially considering the price (about 70-80 EUR for two) and the hotel category.
Some more care could be given to the shampoo/shower gel & co, which were undifferentiated and quite standard.
Positive points: The location is ideal for visiting, just over Potsdamer Platz. We appreciated the 'feather-free' bedding, as requested from my allergic partner, and the personalized dining advice given from the concierge.
