Stayed at the Esplanade for four days for a family birthday.
The room was large, clean and offered most of what you expect of this kind of hotel. The beds where very comfortable. There are two things that should be improved though: First, as more and more hotels offer free internet access, the Esplanade's outrageously expensive fee for internet access seems like a rip-off. Second, coffee making facilities in the room would be great. The rooms are very well sound-isolated.
Breakfast in the Esplanade met all expectations. It was included in the price of our room (we had a stay 4 nights-package price). A chef prepared freshly made eggs and omelets, and the selection of fruit, yoghurts, bread etc. was satisfying.
The hotel's pool and spa was quite nice. The massage and spa treatments are not cheap, but according to the one person in our group that tried them, they are great. The pool is small, but since there where relatively few people using it during our stay, this was no problem.
The location of the hotel has both advantages and disadvantages. It is between the Tiergarten, Potsdamer Platz and Kurfürstendamm. All these attractions are within walking distance. For other attraction, bus or taxi is the best option. A disadvantage is that there is no U-bahn-station in close proximity to the hotel, you have to walk 10 minutes or so to get to one. If you are arriving from Tegel, taking a taxi from/to the airport is propably most convienient. The fare is between 15 and 20 euros.
The price of our stay was not bad at all, considering the standard of the hotel and size of the room. Since this is a business hotel, room prices are much lower in weekends than at business days.
