Named after the Italian painter Artemisia Gentileschi, and formerly the world’s oldest women-only hotel (now open to both sexes), Artemisia has 12 bedrooms, tucked away on the top two floors of a residential apartment building off the Ku’damm. From tiny to palatial, they’re all cheerful, clean and functional and each features the work of a different Berlin-based female artist. There’s a roof terrace off the breakfast room, communal fridges in the hallways, and a warm, relaxing atmosphere created by its founders, Manuela Polidori and Renate Bühler. There are no mints on the pillows, perhaps, but the diverse clientele has service, respect and comfort down.
