Michelin Guide
"This hotel is directly opposite the Gendarmen market It offers modern, designer style rooms and a small leisure area on the top floor."
Concierge
"In contrast to the grand lobbies of the other five- and four-star hotels bordering historic Gendarmenmarkt, the reception area of the comparatively small 92-room Dorint has a quiet, monastic feeling."
Fodor's

i
Request a room facing Gendarmenmarkt, one of the city's most impressive squares.
Lonely Planet
"This cocoon of quiet sophistication has a killer location facing elegant Gendarmenmarkt and 92 rooms and suites that are a flawless interplay of marble, glass and light." Full review
DK Eyewitness
"Relatively inexpensive and the smallest of the first-class hotels (70 rooms, 21 suites), the Sofitel is probably also one of the most attractive, with excellent views of Gendarmenmarkt."
