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).


Latest Berlin Hotel Reviews


Wonderful stay in Berlin
By Carolinaf55
Nice hotel close to public transportation and walking distance to city center. Good value for your money and breakfast is good [Less]
Business and Family Trip
By HJMD
Overall, the experience with the hotel was good. The location served me well for the conference I was attending and the close by local market and attractions for my family. It was about 10-15 minutes [More] walking distance to the Sony Center and the Mall of Berlin. The staff in general were courteous and attentive. They easily accommodated our request for 2 rooms next to each other (I traveled with my wife and 2 teenage daughters, so we needed 2 rooms). Most of the front desk staff were friendly although most of the male front desk staff did not smile to us, albeit they were efficient (I am hoping this is a culture related thing and not because my wife and daughters wore their head covers). We did not have any English speaking movie channel in the available selection. Still, I would recommend this hotel if you are staying for business or for sight seeing. [Less]
Not the best value for money..
By Tanya
The positive things in my hotel stay- 1.The staff very friendly and helpful 2. The room was clean 3.Good location The disadvantages- 1. Not good value for money. I paid for my stay pretty much [More] the same amount I would have paid for a 4 star hotel nearby (but decided to book in this hotel because my friends also stayed here) 2. The room was rather small and dark (I couldn't get organized in the morning without opening the curtains. The room is really badly lit 3. Not a great variety for breakfast [Less]
Boutique Hotel Experience

Decent hotel, could be better
By Niggo
I'm a frequent traveller and when possible I stay at an IHG hotel. This hotel felt a lot more like a holiday inn express than a normal holiday inn. I was a bit disapointed with the lack of most [More] services during late hours (I had to go downstairs to the reception to get a clean towel before midnight). The dinning options outside of lunch/dinner hours might as well not have been there. Overall, the hotel met my expectations with the few disapointments mentioned above. The nice thing about IHG hotels is that when I book at a specific chain, I usually know what to expect, this was the first time I felt like it was below par. [Less]
Honest, comfortable and reasonable
By KateF
It's a lovely bright entrance and the bedrooms are a good size with a comfortable bed and desk to work at. You can also work well in the lobby and there are some simple snacks there too. [More] Overall everything you need for a business stay. Shame I didn't have time to use the gym. [Less]
