Berlin offers a plethora of hotel choices, including chic five-star, boutique gems, and budget stays. Best of all, room rates are far more affordable than those in other major European capitals, making even high-end properties close at hand.

First-timers should opt for hotels around Potsdamer Platz, Gendarmenmarkt, and Unter den Linden, which are convenient for major sights like the Brandenburg Gate and Museum Island.

For those looking for a more authentic and local Berlin experience, consider staying in a peripheral kiez (neighborhood) like Kreuzberg. You can use sites like and to choose a hotel or check in to one of our favorites below.

Rome hotel

Occupying a magnificent neoclassical bank building from the 1880s on the historic Bebelplatz, the Hotel de Rome, from the luxury chain Rocco Forte, is worth a visit. Wonderful original details – high stucco ceilings, white marble floors, sparkling oak paneling – blend with contemporary furnishings for a sleek, modern feel.

Join the trendy crowd on the rooftop terrace for stellar cocktails and spectacular views of nearby Berlin Cathedral, State Opera and the iconic TV Tower.

Zoo Hotel

Hotel Zoo West Berlin has attracted stylish guests, including Sophia Loren, for more than a century, thanks to its prime location on Kurfürstendamm, Berlin’s boutique-lined shopping street.

Newly updated interiors merge art deco glamor with eye-catching contemporary design, including whimsical touches like an elevator adorned with blinking paparazzi-inspired bulbs. Velvet and plush leather furnishings adorn the comfortable rooms while the apartment-sized suites come with a claw-foot tub and a wet bar complete with a stocked wine fridge.

Orania Berlin

Nightlife aficionados will love Orania Berlin, set amid a sea of ​​eclectic bars, restaurants and clubs that define multicultural Kreuzberg. Enter the restored Art Nouveau building and you are greeted by an open-plan living room with windows flanked by wood-burning fireplaces and anchored by a long wooden bar.

The rooms feature sophisticated spaces with warm wooden floors and furniture, embroidered textiles and comfortable beds handcrafted in Germany. During an evening, you can relax on a low sofa with a cocktail and enjoy free evening music played on the grand piano
