In the area around Gedächtniskirche, not a lot is left of the charm and glamour that made the Ku’damm the most legendary street of pre-war Berlin. This makes this wonderful pension, which is hidden away on a quiet sidestreet, a real gem. The house, built in 1895, used to be home to the Danish silent movie star Asta Nielsen and has been lovingly restored. The 14 rooms are decorated with elegant dark wood furniture and art deco detailing. Even if it sounds a little dusty, everything is spotless. The owner has done his best to make the bathrooms match modern standards without destroying the overall feel – in one room the bathroom is hidden inside a replica of an antique wardrobe − but some fall slightly short of the standards you would expect from a newer hotel. However, very reasonable prices make up for this. And the breakfast served in the cosy dining room is as good as anywhere more expensive.
