From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
The Radisson's calling card—a spectacular 220,000-gallon cylindrical aquarium containing 2,500 tropical fish—is actually the least compelling reason to like it. Superbly located at the end of Unter den Linden, just across the Spree River from Museum Island in the trendy Mitte district, the hotel boasts 427 unusually comfortable rooms done in a cutting-edge Scandinavian style, two excellent restaurants, a swell health club with a big swim-against-the-current pool, and a friendly (even at odd hours) staff. Overall, it's an impressive surprise for an international chain—and a good buy to boot.—2005 Hot List
