luxe - Regent Berlin, Germany
Written by Mara Goldwyn
As Berlin offers delights new and old, the Regent Berlin invites guests to experience the city through its timeless luxury.
True elegance is to be found in the details. Gliding over salmon-shaded, flawless marble floors, the visitor is greeted with the subtle fragrance of fresh roses and orchids. Wood panelling lines the elevator, and almost everything is trimmed with the quiet glitter of gold.
Also lined with gold is the classic Meissen porcelain. Out of this elegant china, guests can sample the epicurean creations of Berlin’s culinary masters.
For example, the Regent’s Chef de Bar holds a Gold TeaMaster’s Certificate from Ronnefeldt, the Frankfurt tea purveyor. He is available in the Regent’s Tea Salon to serve exclusive specialty teas brewed to perfection, while in the hotel’s Michelin two-star-rated restaurant, Fischer’s Fritz, celebrated chef Christian Lohse prepares exquisite seafood dishes in an exclusive ambience. A separate private dining area serves up delicacies to celebrities and heads of state alike.
Upstairs, a variety of suites provide privacy and absolute comfort. The staff of the Regent pride themselves on being able to attend to any need with class and discretion: they offer luxury in all the details.
The Rezidor Regent is conveniently located in Berlin’s Mitte neighbourhood. The Friedrichstrasse shopping district, Brandenburg Gate, and the Konzerthaus Berlin are all a short walk away. For those who wish to go farther afield, a Jogging Concierge ‘runs’ tours along Berlin’s leafy trails, and there are Suite packages that include the use of the stunning Mercedes SLS AMG gullwing sports car.
