Berlin's best luxury hotels
The newest (and hippest) member of Berlin’s luxury hotel family, Das Stue has restored the 1930s Royal Danish Embassy to its former splendour with the help of Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola.
The extremely plush and spacious ‘Interconti’ exudes luxury. The airy lobby, with its soft leather chairs, is ideal for browsing the papers, and the rooms, overlooking the Zoo and western edges of the new diplomatic quarter, are large and tastefully decorated, right down to the elegant bathrooms.
‘Design for the senses’ is the motto here. This is a truly lovely hotel, and rooms are often difficult to come by, but it’s well worth the fight.
Not quite the Adlon of yore, which burned down after World War II, this new, more generic luxury version was rebuilt by the Kempinski Group in 1997 on its original site next to the Brandenburg Gate.
