The Riu Plaza Hotel is a MyGayGetaway.com reviewed hotel and we must say we loved it! Along with Axel Hotel its about as gay-central as it gets.
Located in the heart of Schoneberg, the gay district, we fell in love with great location and walked to many gay bars, restaurants and met many gay visitors inside. We also appreciated the sexy and modern room design. You can read more about this hotel in our hotel property review.

spacious rooms with great breakfast
The room was spacious, clean, and had lots of natural light. The bed was very comfortable. For travelers who aren't used to it, you have to put your key card into the slot by the door to get electricity, which is a cool way to save energy without having to think about it. My favorite part was the breakfast buffet - the pain de chocolat, pancakes, and bircher museli were particularly good, but there were a lot of other options as well. It's quite close to the Tiergarten and about 3km from the Brandenburg Tor, but the public transit is relatively close and quite efficient. -Liz J
Another great stay in a Riu Hotel. I have used them on multiple occasions, but this was my first stay at a Plaza Hotel and it wont be the last.
Great location, and close to the attractions, which are in walking distance if you like to walk. Gay bars around the corner both directions.
The staff were friendly and courteous and the rooms were clean. -AndyCorns, Heywood, United Kingdom
Beautiful resort - definitely a different spin on a Riu Property!
I book quite a bit of Riu properties, however, this one is quite different. City vibe - modern. Black interiors in the bathrooms....very chic! Staff was great and the breakfast buffet was definitely worth the add. Highly recommended. -Agnes S, Iowa
Stylish and modern for a mini break
A stylish, clean and modern hotel, the deluxe double room is compact bit HUGE bed and massive rain shower and under floor heating. A 2 minute walk from the nearest U-Bahn. Superb breakfast buffet - but could do with tiered prices, €18 was quite expensive for people like myself and partner who don’t eat a lot. Nice bar and classy lobby, stylish! -Sarah_Robb0, Staffordshire
Stayed here for 2 nights for a conference not too far away. Service in hotel was excellent - all staff throughout the hotel so polite. Bedroom spotless. Great bathroom. Fab shower. Good breakfast - have had worse at 5* resorts! All in all an excellent central hotel. -lovegoodservice1
I just came for ITB Berlin last night and my friend booked a night for me in this hotel. I left my tablet in my room and I just worried I could not find it after I checked out at 11:30am. When I came back to the hotel at around 2:30pm on the same day, I reported my loss to them and they found it for me immediately. With this speedy follow up service and nice rooms, I will definitely come back to stay again. Thanks again for your help. -PleasureTours H
Comfortable Hotel in a Good Location
I've stayed here on a couple different occasions.
Check-in was quick and efficient and they gave me a room on a higher floor as I requested. It had a great view of Berlin and was extremely quiet.
The bed was fine and standard for Germany. Even on some extremely cold days, the temperature was perfect in the room. I greatly appreciate the refrigerator being available for use.
The bathroom was very nice, though a little more counter space would be nice. I very much enjoyed the shower, I like hotels with big walk-in showers.
Oh one of the nicest things, heated floors in the bathroom areas. -Aus_Gary, Austin, Texas
