Bottom Line

The 246-room, upscale Leonardo Royal Hotel Berlin Alexanderplatz is a good value in a convenient location near the Alexanderplatz transportation hub and many attractions. It offers a posh lobby with restaurant and bar and a host of luxurious amenities including 24-hour room service and concierge. Rooms are tastefully decorated with modern amenities, but some are quite small, and bathroom configurations in certain rooms may present privacy issues. Some other area hotels like the Holiday Inn Berlin Centre Alexanderplatz are comparatively priced with similar amenities while being a bit closer to Alexanderplatz.

Scene

Posh, contemporary property with Art-Deco details

A tan stucco exterior distinguishes the building of the Leonardo Royal. Inside, brown tile floors, black marble wainscoting, and soaring, two-story cream-colored walls adorn the Art Deco-style lobby. Two columns emit soft pink neon light framing the entrance by the formal front desk. Large, colorful art prints of bright red, blue, and yellow grace the walls. Throughout the hotel are cushy sitting areas with comfortable couches and chairs in soft lavender and tan. In the modern lobby bar, soft white lighting frames the white barstools while pink neon zips around the ceiling. The restaurant is quite large and spread out with formal, white tablecloth dining. Like the bar, it's bathed in a soft neon light of pink and orange. Also on-site is a small but delightful outdoor terrace/courtyard with several tables, chairs, and umbrellas by small manicured lawns. Overall, the Leonardo Royal provides a warm, colorful setting that's elegant without being stuffy.

Location

Near transportation hubs in the heart of the city

The Leonardo Royal Hotel Berlin Alexanderplatz is located in what was once East Berlin in the heart of the city. The bustling Alexanderplatz hub that connects the city’s major public transportation trains, trams, and buses is two train stops away or an easy 10-minute walk. From Alexanderplatz, train service to the Berlin airports is approximately 30 minutes. A tram stop is only a one-minute walk from the hotel lobby, and a bus stop is about two minutes. A wide variety of restaurants are within five minutes’ walk, and the Alexa shopping center is a 10-minute walk. The entrance to Volkspark Friedrichshain, one of Berlin’s largest and oldest parks with lovely ponds, fountains, and walking paths, is adjacent to the hotel, less than a two-minute walk away. On-site parking is available in an underground garage.

Rooms

Modern, nicely decorated small rooms with tiny bathrooms

Room sizes vary but have the same contemporary decor throughout, with wood headboards inset with a colorful detail of Leonardo da Vinci’s "Vitruvian Man." An accent wall of green or red sets off the headboard and the other cream-colored walls. Brown patterned carpet, large wood-framed mirrors, and photos of Berlin landmarks add elegance. An empty mini-fridge, electric kettle, electronic safe, and wall-mounted, 32-inch flat-screen TV are standard, as are large windows that open offering attractive street views. Classic Rooms are quite small with the bed dominating the room, and Deluxe Rooms offer more space, with an added brown leather couch, glass coffee table, and ottoman, plus a flat-screen TV that swivels. Bathrooms are equally small in all rooms, with brown and tan tile and stainless steel fixtures. Classic Rooms have only a small shower stall. Deluxe Rooms have a shower/tub combo; and though there's a door between the toilet and the rest of the bathroom, there's no door between the bathroom and bedroom, which some guests find unattractive. Suites are larger, but their bathrooms remain small. All rooms have free basic Wi-Fi, but some guests complain it's slow. A higher-speed Internet service is available for a surcharge. 

Features

On-site restaurant and bar, rooftop fitness center with sauna and steam room, and meeting space

The hotel offers an extensive buffet breakfast that while not generally included in the room rate, is offered as part of some packages. The Vitruv restaurant serves dinner nightly with a focus on Mediterranean cuisine with Asian influences. The lobby bar offers happy hour prices nightly, and vending machines in the hallways sell beer, snacks and soft drinks, plus 24-hour room service is also available. The rooftop fitness center is open 24 hours and features sauna, steam room, indoor and outdoor relaxation areas with lounge chairs, and a full range of stationary bikes, treadmills, weights and weight machines. Ten meeting rooms including a large ballroom can accommodate events for up to 700 people, and the business center has several computer stations and fax and printing services. Concierge services, laundry services, self-serve laundry facilities, and free Wi-Fi in public spaces are available, as are free newspapers for guests. Parking is on-site in an underground garage.
