Monbijou is a fantastic boutique hotel located in the modern city of Berlin, Capital of Germany in Western Europe. This 99 room well equipped hotel in Berlin-Mitte is only a few minutes’ walk from the Hackescher Market station. It’s an ideal place to stay whilst you explore the fabulous sights, sounds and culture of this amazing city.
At the arrival we were greeted by the staff at the reception in the lobby of the hotel. We were checked in and taken to our room, soon followed by a member of staff bringing a bottle of delectable wine. After taking some time to enjoy the wine and settle into our new surroundings we were able to orientate ourselves to the room.
We had been provided with the corner suite which had a spacious king size bed, large sofa and sofa chairs, large open glass windows where the corners of the room met, with an amazing view of the cathedral. It was fully equipped with aircondition, bathroom and a safe.
Having a corner suite would also mean that the room is very near the train tracks and the main road but it didn't hinder our comfortable sleep. We had a quiet and great sleep, and didnt hear a single noise. The suite was equipped with blackout curtains too which is quite important during summer season.
The bathroom is fully fitted and is beautifully equipped. What made me love it more is that it is equipped with Molton Brown toiletries.
The staff were incredibly friendly attentive and helpful. The manager and staff showed me around the hotel facilities, bar, and restaurant making us feel really very welcome. The hotel itself has a very impressive interior all throughout. The style of the hotel was of a modern but with a décor which breathed comfort and warmth. This is my first time with Ming Hotel group and this makes me curious on what the other hotel looks like.
There is a roof top terrace bar, a lobby bar, and a winter bar (only open during the colder months). The bar staff are very friendly and attentive, easy to approach and talk to. The drinks are made beautifully and taste delicious. A professional but friendly service from all the staff.
The rooftop bar gives a perfect outstretched view of the Cathedral and Berlin Tower and is a really great place to relax with a beverage or two. There's plenty of loungers and huge umbrellas to relax under the shade.
There is also a sauna on the ground floor. It is small but comfortable enough to help open up those pores and relax, with a shower outside.
The fitness centre, a subterranean gym with machines and free weights to help you keep fit. It is interesting to note that the hotel will be undergoing extension, with an additional swimming pool on the rooftop in the future.
The Monbijou restaurant offers an extensive choice of fresh well prepared and presented meals, including both cold and hot cuisines. You can really tell that the meals come from expert chefs who have spent time ensuring that they have high quality ingredients and recipes.
The buffet breakfast has a range of many different foods and juices all beautifully presented for your morning meal. It’s also possible to have bespoke egg specialities on request.
Rod: I really liked Monbijou because it really felt like I had come home even though I was away from home! I was made to feel really at ease on arrival… people were friendly.
Ruchi: Yeah, the staff were so nice to us, it made me feel really special!
Rod: Suzanna the general manager made some extra time with us, just to show us the features of the hotel. We were shown around and then introduced to everyone. It’s so good because you get to know the hotel so much better and it makes you feel so comfortable during your stay.
Ruchi: Yeah, all the staff are exceptional, they will make sure that you have an exceptional stay – they ask you if you need anything etc. it’s just such a friendly hotel.
