Fodor's Expert Review Pullman Berlin Schweizerhof

Budapester Str. 25, Berlin, 10787, Germany See on Map

Close to the Berlin Zoo and Tiergarten park, this contemporary nine-story hotel is smart, stylish and particularly well-suited to the business traveler. The spacious rooms emphasize functionality, with large desks and USB ports throughout, while the comprehensive business center offers 24-hour access to Mac computers and printers. A large heated indoor pool and high-tech fitness center are perfect for squeezing in a workout.


Four categories range from superior rooms to deluxe suites; all are decorated in neutral beige and light-gray tones with modern furnishings, including an expansive, fully wired desk and ergonomic office chair. All have flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, coffee- and tea-making facilities, mini-bars and bathrobes and slippers. The suites offer comfortable seating areas. Rooms at the front of the hotel have views of Tiergarten park.


The decent-sized bathrooms have good lighting, make-up mirrors and walk-in rainforest showers with C.O. Bigelow products.


The expansive, white-marble-floored lobby has multiple seating areas and nice design touches, including contemporary lighting fixtures, colorful patterned columns and modern artwork.


In addition to the 60-foot lower-level indoor pool, there are multiple saunas and a steam room.


The trendy, high-ceilinged Blend Kitchen and Bar is outfitted with colorful, modern seating and tall windows looking out onto bustling Budapester Straße. The menu is a mix of German and Mediterranean specialties.


Adjoining the restaurant, the lighted bar features comfortable high-backed velvet stools and art deco fixtures; the cocktail menu offers signature and seasonal drinks and a nice selection of wines by the glass.

If you just want a quick, affordable bite, the bar has a small menu of bite-sized snacks.


Getting Around

It’s an 11-minute walk from the Zoologischer Garten S- and U-Bahn station.


There are plenty of dining options at the hip concept mall Bikini Berlin (9-minute walk), including Asian, Mediterranean and Latin American fare at the Kantini food court. Across the street at the InterContinental Berlin, Hugo’s (2-minute walk) enjoys panoramic city views and a Michelin-starred menu.


The aptly named Monkey Bar (6-minute walk), on the rooftop of the 25hours Hotel Bikini Berlin, is a buzzy cocktail spot with a unique view of the monkey enclosure at the Berlin Zoo. Dance into the wee hours at the sleek, multi-story bar-nightclub Puro Sky Lounge (9-minute walk), which serves up great city views with throbbing house and hip-hop music as a backdrop.


This modern corporate hotel won’t win any style awards, but it’s thoughtfully designed, with large, comfortable rooms and everything a business traveler needs, including a business center, fitness room and room service available around the clock. Its proximity to Tiergarten park, the Berlin Zoo and KaDeWe department store are also pluses.
