Concierge.com's insider take:
Designed by the East German government shortly before reunification, this lavish hotel boasts a dramatic, glass-walled lobby, 294 air-conditioned guest rooms, and 11 meeting rooms for business travelers. Rooms are small but cozy, and bathrooms promise tub-shower combinations, uncommon in this town. Budget travelers bewarethe costs of breakfast, parking and Internet usage are not included in the room rates, but use of the pool and sauna are thankfully free.
