This design hotel bears testament to the changing face of Berlin Mitte; once the centre of Berlin’s squat party phenomenon, gentrification has taken root and it’s a sign of the times that a branch of upmarket restaurant Lutter and Wegner is located opposite. If you really want to be in the middle of everything, this is the perfect choice. Many of the rooms face onto the street below with floor to ceiling windows, so when the sun shines, the building fills with light and guests benefit from the perfect vantage point to watch life on the streets of young Berlin below. The muslin draped between bed and bathroom create an airy, contemporary space, reflecting the smart, but simple design which attracts a young, hip crowd. The lack of a hotel restaurant gives visitors all the more reason to explore the neighbourhood.
