Adlon Kempinski Hotel – Berlin


Facing the Brandenburg Gate, Pariser Platz and Unter den Linden, iconic places of the German capital, stands a luxurious and exclusive hotel.


When Lorenz Adlon, at the beginning of the 20th century, decided to build the Hotel that took his name, he had very clear ideas: it should have been the best hotel in the world! He invested the huge sum of 20 million gold marks and in 1907 the Adlon was inaugurated. Built not only in the name of luxury, but also equipped with all the possible technological “wonders” of the era: electric light (supplied by a dedicated generator), hot and cold running water, air conditioning and heating.

The architectural, furnishing and technological qualities of course increased soon its fame on an international level, and became a destination for important political, entertainment and culture figures. Greta Garbo, Charlie Chaplin, Tomas Mann, Albert Einstein, Enrico Caruso, Ted and Franklin D. Roosvelt stayed there, and especially the Emperor, Kaiser Wilhelm II, who can be called its “godfather”, however high his appreciation was.

As the Phoenix


Unfortunately, the historical events that followed led to the destruction of the Adlon at the end of the Second World War, and the subsequent division of Berlin did not allow it to be rebuilt before the fall of the “wall”.
Finally, acquired by the Fond Fund and managed by the Kempinski Group, after an investment of about 250 million Euros, in 1997 the Hotel was rebuilt in the classic style of its predecessor, and immediately imposed itself as a standard of luxury hospitality in Europe.

More than 300 rooms and 78 suites (of which about forty directly accessible from the outside for long-term guests), including three “presidential” ones, exclusively curated by the butler Dirk Ricardo Dürner. The furniture and design have been entrusted to Ezra Attia Associates (London) and AB Living Designs (Sweden), obtaining a very refined mix of elegance in style with the past and technological perfection available to guests.

Three restaurants, including one with two Michelin stars (Lorens Adlon Esszimmer), led by Chef Hendrik Otto, the lobby bar, an impeccable service and floral decorations everywhere (work of the constant commitment of the internal florist Mario Wendel), combined with availability of the Adlon Spa by Resense, can only promise stays of… imperial luxury.
