We have just completed a three day break at the Kempinski Hotel Bristol in Berlin. This was our first experience of a Voyage Privé holiday. We were very satisfied with the arrangements offered. In particular we liked:
• The price. £500 for a three day break for two in a five star hotel on the Kurfürstendammn on a B and B basis, including return air travel was excellent value.
• The airline. Flying with Lufthansa from Manchester to Berlin Tegel and return was a complete pleasure and a refreshing contrast to our reviewed experience with Air France in June.
• The hotel. I had first stayed at the Bristol in 1990. Staff, the room and breakfast all continue to exceed my expectations. An evening meal in the hotel’s restaurant Reinhard’s was somewhat pricey. However the menu was innovative and offered well-cooked good food.
• Berlin itself. Public transport is first-rate. We bought 72 hour Berlin Welcome Cards for around £20 each at a local station. Our particular cards covered all public transport in Berlin and as far out as Potsdam. Buses, trams, U-Bahn and S-Bahn trains are all frequent and clean. Berliners themselves were polite and helpful. As we had visited many of the sights and museums in Berlin before, this time we concentrated on the Film Museum in Berlin and Sanssouci Palace in Potsdam. The former is well worth a visit. However, Sanssouci is best visited in warm weather when you can see the gardens at their best in addition to the Palace. We ate out of the hotel for most meals and particularly recommend the Brauhaus Lemke in Hackesher Markt for good filling food.

Voyage Privé’s paperwork regarding Lufthansa could be improved. Check-in times were grossly exaggerated and baggage allowance understated compared with Lufthansa’s website. But that is our only criticism of a good value, well organised city break.

    I was glad to see all the posts about Voyage Prive as I am also a member but have not booked a trip yet. One that I have been looking at is Berlin as it is one city in Germany that I have not been to but would love to see. Now I am even more interested in going.
