Featured Berlin Hotels



Berlin is one of the most laid-back, hedonistic cities in Europe. Exploring its layers of history can feel like a treasure hunt, and its museums, concert halls, galleries and clubs attract art and culture lovers. Wide-open green spaces and lots of child-friendly museums and play areas make it a great place for families.

Berlin: city layout
For hundreds of years, Berlin was actually a collection of villages. Then the Berlin Wall divided the city from 1961 to 1989. Although it's now whole again, finding its true centre can still be difficult.

Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt are the focus of commercial life in the former East, while Zoologischer Garten and the shopping mile Kurfürstendamm (Ku'damm for short) are the centre of the former West.
Many historic sites are in Mitte, while Prenzlauer Berg and Kreuzberg are former working class areas gone upscale. Charlottenburg and Schöneberg were both once central to Berlin's decadent nightlife, immortalised in the film "Cabaret". Now they are elegant residential areas full of restaurants, shops and galleries.

Top attractions in Berlin
The first stop for many is Museum Island in the Spree River, where a cluster of stately Prussian buildings house an art collection spanning centuries. From there, it's a 30-minute walk down Unter den Linden boulevard to one of Berlin's most famous symbols: the Brandenburg Gate.
Just to the right of the gate is the seat of parliament known as the Reichstag. Book in advance to visit its glass dome, designed by British architect Norman Foster. Next to it sits Berlin's central park Tiergarten, dotted with monuments, statues, streams and gardens. Berlin's Zoo and Aquarium occupy a corner of the park at one end of Ku'damm.

The concierge recommends…

  • Exploring the Hackesche Höfe, a maze of ornate courtyards housing boutiques and ateliers.
  • A walk along the up-and-coming gallery mile of Potsdamer Strasse.
  • A concert at the unconventional Philharmonie, an iconic 1960s building.
  • A visit to Tempelhofer Feld, site of the Berlin Airlift in 1949 and an operating airport until 2008, now a sprawling park.

Hotels in Berlin

Berlin's hotels suit every budget, from old-fashioned inns that have been around for decades to trendy urban hotels with their own bars and acclaimed restaurants. Some so-called "aparthotels" have bigger rooms with kitchenettes for longer stays.

Young leisure travelers like to stay near Alexanderplatz as it's close to major sites and train lines, or Prenzlauer Berg for its laid-back, family-friendly atmosphere.

To experience the city's vibrant, 24-hour nightlife, pick a hotel in Friedrichshain, a low-key part of the former East, or Wedding, a student area with a large Turkish population.Business travellers like to stay near Potsdamer Platz, where Berlin's low-rise homes give way to high-rise office buildings, or Zoologischer Garten, which is named after one of the city's main transportation hubs and is close to the ICC congress centre.



Eating Out in Berlin

Berlin offers restaurants and cafés at all prices, as well as weekly outdoor markets. Bakeries sell classic German breads and cakes, while beer gardens and street food events are an excuse to spend time outside.
A Berlin favourite is the outdoor market at Winterfeldtplatz in Schöneberg on Saturdays. Markthalle IX, a revamped brick market hall in Kreuzberg, has a popular Thursday street food event.
Restaurants in Mitte's Hackescher Markt serve everything from reimagined classic German cuisine to Asian fusion to Spanish tapas. Wander Ku'damm's side streets in Charlottenburg for grand old establishments serving a wealthy and elegant clientele.
Tip: Even today, many restaurants do not accept credit cards, preferring cash or EC cards (debit cards with an electronic chip) used all over Europe. Ask when making your reservation.

The chef recommends...

  • Berliner Weisse: A light, summery beer traditionally drunk with shots of fruit syrup.
  • Currywurst: A true Berlin creation, this sausage is made with a spicy curry powder, then topped with curry-flavored ketchup.
  • Döner Kebab: Many believe this Turkish flatbread was invented in Berlin. Meant to be eaten on the go, it is stuffed with meat sliced from a spit, fresh salads and sauces.
  • Königsberger Klopse: This warming dish consists of fluffy meatballs with caper cream sauce, served with boiled potatoes.
  • Berliner: This jelly-filled, glazed doughnut is actually known as a Pfannkuchen in Berlin, but remains a Berliner to the rest of Germany.

Shopping in Berlin

Berlin has an intriguing mix of long shopping boulevards filled with recognisable brands and quaint side streets where local designers and craftsmen sell clothes, homeware and speciality items.

First-time shoppers would do well to start on Friedrichstrasse in Mitte, where the enormous "culture emporium" Dussmann offers books, magazines, CDs and DVDs. A 10-minute walk further south is French department store Galeries Lafayette, as well as many mainstream shops.
You'll feel like a local as you explore the tiny streets of the Hackescher Markt area like Mulackstrasse, Auguststrasse and Kleine Hamburger Strasse. Here, small independent boutiques have set up shop in 100-year-old buildings.
Apple's flagship store is on Kurfürstendamm, and you'll find other international brands nearby. The Kaufhaus des Westens, KaDeWe for short, is the largest department store in continental Europe, located at Wittenbergplatz.

Specialty shops in Berlin

  • Absinthe Depot: Stepping into this eclectic little shop in Mitte is like going back in time, with vintage wallpaper and posters, and shelves of bottles with Art Nouveau labels.
  • Jünemann's Pantoffel Eck: Germans are very serious about their slippers, and this shop sells the comfy, puffy German "house shoes" in many colours.
  • SenfSalon: This shop stocks endless jars of mustard, Germans' favourite condiment, including varieties made with beer, chilli and liquorice.
  • Frau Tonis Parfum: Local perfume shop Frau Tonis puts "Berlin in a bottle" with scents like Berlin Summer and Linde Berlin, named after Berlin's many fragrant linden trees.

Culture & Nightlife in Berlin

As well as the Philharmonie at Potsdamer Platz, Berlin has three major opera houses and countless theaters staging everything from big hits to independent productions.

Official state museums, including those on Museum Island, are spread all over town. Galleries in Mitte, Wedding and Schöneberg's Potsdamer Strasse fill in the gaps with contemporary works.
You'll find paintings, drawings and the Musical Instrument Museum in a complex west of Potsdamer Platz known as the Kulturforum. In Charlottenburg, several museums sit directly across the street from Charlottenburg Palace, in the former royal barracks and stables. Berlin's nightlife is still defined by the "anything goes" attitude that made it famous in the 1920s and ‘30s. Bars and clubs in Mitte, Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain stay open until morning. Easygoing Kneipen (local pubs) and wine bars are joined by craft beer breweries and creative cocktail venues, as well as the popular 'beach bars' that line the Spree.

Small museums in Berlin

  • Museum der Dinge (Museum of Things): This Kreuzberg museum is exactly what it sounds like: a barely curated collection of stuff, put together by a craftsmen's union.
  • Buchstabenmuseum (Letters Museum): This museum's name is also pretty literal: it exhibits quirky neon signage rescued from Berlin's derelict buildings.
  • Bröhan Museum: This private collection of Art Deco, Art Nouveau and Functionalist art and design sits just opposite Charlottenburg Palace.
  • Käthe Kollwitz Museum: Set in a lavish townhouse in Charlottenburg, this museum showcases the works of German painter and sculptor Käthe Kollwitz.

Visiting Berlin with a Family

Berlin is a popular family destination, packed with child-friendly cafés, restaurants, parks, museums and playgrounds. Though Germany is known to fret about its slow population growth, a walk through Prenzlauer Berg or parts of Kreuzberg will make anyone think the city is in the midst of a baby boom.
Kindercafés (children's cafés) are a relaxing morning option, with a separate area for kids to play in while you sip your coffee. The petting zoo Jugendfarm Moritzhof is at the northern end of Mauerpark, which also has three small playgrounds with tall slides and loads of climbing structures.
At the centre of town is Berlin's main zoo, Zoologischer Garten and Aquarium, where children will marvel at the ornate elephants guarding the front gates as well as the live ones inside.
Your kids can release some energy on the preserved runways and grassy areas of Tempelhofer Feld, once an airport and now a public park. A boat ride on the Spree and Landwehr Canal offers kids a different way of looking at the city.

Hands-on museums in Berlin

  • Labyrinth Kindermuseum Wedding: This indoor space for kids can really feel like a labyrinth, with a maze of interactive, themed rooms.
  • Deutsches Technikmuseum: On the site of a former train depot, this museum exhibits industrial machines, a walkable timeline of trains in two sheds, a multilevel hall of boats and airplanes and antique brewing vessels in a brick tower.
  • Museumsdorf Düppel: This recreation of a medieval village is built on top of an actual 13th-century Slavic settlement. Costumed employees teach children about how people lived back then.
  • DDR Museum: Interactive exhibitions at this museum teach visitors about daily life in East Germany (the DDR or German Democratic Republic).

Very Good Service
By NKIE

Good Location and Value for money
By MRFleischer
I really like this Hotel and have stayed three times this year. Value for Money and staff friendliness are exceptional and i like that I can choose between nonsmoking and smoking rooms (very rare [More] nowadays). The Gesundbrunnen area is interesting and offers lots of opportunities for shopping and restaurants. Cannot understand why some people call this area "unsafe" (I think they are all from abroad and/or the countryside), because it is as safe as any area in central Berlin. I have already booked the next stay for this Friday. [Less]
Very pleasant hotel experience
By MRFleischer
This was my second stay at this hotel and I liked it even better than the first time. This hotel has a very good location and extremely helpful staff. I especially like that requests for a special [More] room type are always honoured and that there is a choice between smoking and non-smoking rooms. Will stay there again. Next stay is already booked for this Friday. [Less]
Great Location
By Scampers01
Very pleasant 4 night stay, nice, clean, modern hotel. Lovely staff, who were courteous and helpful. Good WiFi connection and I love the area, very hip and alternative nightlife with great [More] restaurants and cafes, 2 mins from a tram stop and tube/metro/subway. I had room only so can't comment on breakfast, but had a room service evening meal and (sorry) would not recommend. Overall - highly recommended, good quality, affordable accomodation in an interesting area, but would not bother with the evening food in the future. I will be back! [Less]

Friendly and helpful staff and lovey rooms
By Fussy Lady
We could not fault this hotel. The staff were exceptional and the rooms were kept spotless. We had one little "accident", my husband had a slight nosebleed in the night and soiled a pillow. Very [More] embarrassing. But it wasn't mentioned by the staff. So kind. The atmosphere was very relaxed and made our stay in Berlin a happy one. [Less]
Good location with parking
By Pooden
The hotel was fine for my short stay in Berlin. I would recommend a mini bar in the rooms. The breakfast was overpriced, dining room very crowded and not enough tables. Parking was a plus and public [More] transportation to key sights was excellent. Overall, it met my needs in Berlin for my short stay. [Less]
Wonderful location
By Babasusan
Really excellent location for a visit to Berlin - with the downtown sites all within walking distance. The only complaint was that the room was very warm and the heat controls were not effective - [More] but it could have been the wonderful weather we had during our visit :-). [Less]
