Park Plaza Berlin Ku'damm: Dominik tests modern city hotel

Recently I was allowed to test the popular Park Plaza Berlin Kudamm for two days. The hotel is located in Berlin's vibrant west and impresses with its tasteful design and unique atmosphere. From here you can wonderfully explore the city, go on a shopping spree and experience Berlin's mood. The hotel offers spacious rooms, conference rooms and a fully equipped business center. The rich breakfast buffet is served in the Garden Salon, which boasts floor-to-ceiling windows.

I was offered a so-called Executive Room on the 4th floor with a view of the beautiful courtyard. The room impresses with its spaciousness (27sqm) and modern decor. In particular I fell in love with the king size bed which is just ideal to really relax and dream.

Fitness & Shopping

I also like to keep fit when traveling, so a well-equipped gym always plays an important role for me. The Park Plaza has its own fitness center with cardio machines and free weights. Here you can train during your stay and keep yourself in good shape. Towels and drinks are provided for free in the gym.

Due to its direct proximity to legendary Kurfürstendamm, shopping tours are an obvious choice. In just a few minutes you can reach all the trendy shops and boutiques of the city. I also made it to the world-famous KaDeWe after a short time and at the hip "Monkey Bar" in Bikini Berlin I had a well-deserved shopping break.

LGBT proofed!

Thanks to its central location in the middle of the German capital, the Park Plaza is the perfect starting point for tours across Berlin. With public transport, almost all the city's queer hot spots can be easily reached. The famous Regenbogenkiez in the gaybourhood of Schöneberg with its numerous gay bars and clubs is just a few minutes away. Here you will also find various queer shops and boutiques.

The hotel staff is always friendly and on request also shares tips about Berlin´s gay nightlife. There is also a LGBT scene magazine available at the lobby.
