Radisson Collection lands in Germany
Germany’s first Radisson Collection hotel is now open in Berlin following the renovation of an existing property containing the world’s largest freestanding cylindrical aquarium.
This newly redesigned flagship scheme has started welcoming guests into a stylish space in Berlin-Mitte.
A milestone opening for Radisson
This debut follows an extensive 12-month renovation involving the redesign of all guestrooms and a new look for its lobby, bar and restaurant spaces. The property’s famous Aquadom, which is the largest freestanding cylindrical aquarium in the world with 1,600 tropical fish, has also been enhanced but remains the centrepiece of the lobby.
Berlin Brandenburg Airport is easily accessible from the hotel, either by train or taxi.
“After an extensive creative design process and all the hard work that was put into creating our German flagship hotel, we are excited to launch Radisson Collection Hotel, Berlin,” said Oliver Staas, general manager of the hotel. “The hotel’s unparalleled location on the river right in the centre of Berlin-Mitte, the new interior design with its close attention to detail and our signature Radisson Collection service level will make this hotel a fixture in the five-star hotel market in Berlin.”
Suitable for business and leisure
In total, the hotel houses 427 guestrooms and suites across six floors. Each room is decorated in wooden, grey and plum tones, with decorative accessories and artwork featured throughout. The bathrooms pair the same dark wood tones with white marble.
Several rooms come with private balconies overlooking the Spree and the city itself, including the 101 sq m sixth-floor Nikolai Suite, which boasts a living room, dining room with kitchenette and bathroom with whirlpool tub.
The hotel’s Atrium Bar then provides a place for guests to meet beneath the AquaDom, with coffee and cake served by day along with expertly crafted cocktails, some highlighting locally produced spirits, and small dishes showcasing ingredients by local suppliers.
Adding to this dining experience, Balaustine Restaurant will open as the hotel’s main dining venue in March 2022. Diners can expect to enjoy the flavours of the Levant, alongside cocktails inspired by the Middle East, in a space also encompassing an appealing terrace.
Additional amenities include Heaven Spa with its Finnish sauna, training equipment and indoor pool.
Last but not least, events are hosted in 2,750 sq m of meeting space spanning 15 multifunctional rooms across three floors, with the DomLounge located beneath a glass roof providing panoramic views. Altogether, the event space’s foyer and meeting rooms can accommodate up to 550 delegates.
