After just arriving back from Berlin we have to admit that the city is our new favourite European city break destination! A hub of style, fashion and culture you will have plenty to keep you amused on a mini-break. New boutique accommodation offerings are popping up all over Berlin and we have picked out a few that we highly recommend.
Das Stue offers the perfect mix of luxury and sophistication. Period charm sits in harmony with modern interiors. The building was originally constructed in 1938 and once housed the Danish Embassy, the grand lobby with its restored staircase glides up to the hotels lounge, bar and restaurant. The 78 rooms are split between the original building and annex and are ultramodern with hardwood floors and glorious attention to detail – if you stay ask for a room with a freestanding bathtub, this really is the hotel to be at in the city.

25Hours Bikini Berlin
25hours Berlin is an ultramodern millennial paradise, a hit from the moment it opened in 2014. The hotel is right in the heart of the Berlin Zoo district in the Bikini Berlin which was a former 1590’s high rise, that has been completely reimagined as a culture and art quarter. Expect floor to ceiling windows in rooms, black tiled walk in showers, double sided mirrors and the occasional hammock to monkey about in (well we are near the zoo after all). Views looking out to the zoo’s elephant and ape enclosures in the Jungle rooms and Urban rooms look over the war-damaged spire of the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church and the City West skyline. This is a seriously cool hotel that we just love.
