One of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe and especially in Germany, Berlin is something that you simply have to experience at least once in your life. Besides its political and historical importance, Berlin is nowadays a hub for young entrepreneurs, artists and creative people from all over the world who make the city one of the most diverse places in Germany. In case you asked yourself where you should stay when you go to Berlin, we took a look at the 10 best hotels in Berlin that you might want to take a look at!
1. Soho House
The Soho House has been founded in London and evolved to a global network of people and travelers, mostly from the creative industries. In its vision, Soho House wants to create a relatively exclusive space for those who do not want the standard hotel stay and be more around like-minded people. If you are a member, you can enjoy access to amazing food, suites and bars as well as pools and a cinema! It is however not that easy to become a member and you have to fill out an application form for that. Once you’re in, you could get into all the different Soho Houses in the world depending on your membership. If you are lucky you might even spot celebrities such as George Clooney or Leonardo Di Caprio!
Right in the district of Kreuzberg, a culturally mixed and controversially discussed part of Berlin, you will find Hotel Orania. It derived its name from its location at “Oranienplatz” and was just opened a few years ago, so you can expect a highly modern and well-maintained place. With more than 40 rooms and suites, the hotel is targeting the luxury segment of travelers but for those who can afford, it is a very comfortable and service-oriented accommodation where you can truly lay back. Especially the lounge area with its live piano music invites for a chillout evening while treating yourself a glass of whisky!
3. Hotel Adlon Kempinski
One of the most famous hotels in Germany, the Hotel Adlon Kempinski is for sure also one of the best hotels in Berlin. Located right next to the main sight of Berlin, the Brandenburg Gate, you will always be in the center of the city and wake up to some great views. The hotel itself has quite a long history, even though it was rebuilt after the union of East and West Germany. Once you are checked in, there are 3 restaurants to choose from, so you must not be looking for other restaurants if you are very hungry. If you do not have the need to eat something, the hotel also offers very good spa facilities in the basement with a Roman-style pool area!
4. Hotel am Steinplatz
Close to the famous Berlin Zoo, the Hotel am Steinplatz welcomes you as part of the Marriott Group. Even though it is considered a high-class luxury boutique hotel, you will be able to get really good deals depending on the season and if you are lucky you could get a really good room for less than 130€. If you choose one of the more expensive rooms, you will get a private balcony with a relatively big bed and bathroom that really make you want to stay inside at times. Of course you will also find a wellness area with saunas and fitness room here.
5. Das Stue Berlin
If you decide to stay at the Stue, you will be right in the embassy district next to the embassies of Spain and Georgia and have the green spots of Berlin Zoo right behind you. A luxury hotel in one of the most exclusive areas of the city, the Stue requires you to have deep pockets – but it can be really worth it. Once you enter, an ancient animal skull greeting you in the middle of marble stairways already make you feel like you are in a palace and the whole staff is continuously working on keeping that feeling alive!
6. Steigenberger Hotel
Part of the German Steigenberger Group, the Berlin branch benefits from decades of hotelier expertise. The luxury character is already represented by the hotel’s location close to the Kudamm – the most expensive shopping mile in Berlin! The exterior might not make travelers expect a high-class hotel but once you are inside, you will immediately stop worrying about any quality issues. Besides its more than 300 well-designed rooms, guests can book one of the fancy suites and access the spa area with pool and sauna!
7. Pullman Schweizerhof
When entering the lobby of the Pullman right at Berlin Zoo, you already know that this is one of the best hotels in Berlin. The whole design and welcoming service is perfectly matching the hotels claim to provide an unprecedented guest experience and the good news is that the lobby is just the beginning of your stay. For the rooms you have the choice from a few categories which are quite similar in design but vary in terms of size and equipment. Take some time for yourself in the steam room and sauna, swim a few rounds in the pool and get ready for a night out in Berlin in the spacious rooms that the Pullman offers!

8. Waldorf Astoria
Even though we just mention the Waldorf Astoria now, it definitely belongs to our list of the best hotels in Berlin. Just like the previous hotels, it is located around Berlin Zoo and is the only hotel of the Waldorf Astoria Group that you can find in Germany. So if you are there, why not try? The prices start quite high but for that you already get really fancy rooms with beautiful marble bathrooms in the lowest room category. When you get up in the morning, you can look forward to one of the best breakfasts you can expect in any Berlin hotel – but you have to pay extra. That could be really worth it though and we believe that it is a good idea to spend a few Euros to start the day in the best way! A special thing about the Waldorf Astoria is also the library lounge with a gentlemens club atmosphere and amazing views over the city. Of course, a spa area must not be missing here and you can relax until the evening in some of the pool and sauna facilities.

Fun Fact Friday The award for the highest building in Berlin does not go to the Waldorf Astoria Berlin. With over 118 impressive metres and 31 floors we only made it to the Top 5. But where else could you watch elephants while relaxing in the bathtub of the highest suite in town? #WaldorfAstoria #WaldorfAstoriaBerlin #LiveUnforgettable #PresidentialSuite #BerlinZoo #PureLuxury #Berlin #wow
9. Regent Berlin
Finally a hotel that is not located right next to Berlin Zoo! However, if you really like animals you can still reach the zoo in less than 20 minutes walking distance. The Regent has an excellent location right in the middle of Berlin and is very accessibly by public transport through the subway stop “Französische Straße”. Right around the hotel you will have many sights such as the Bundestag, the Brandenburg Gate, Gendarmenmarkt or Monbijoupark. Inside the hotel you will feel like in a marble wonderland and everything you see basically looks like from a movie. Even the lobby has marble floor and furniture and the rooms certainly belong to the most classic ones that you could ask for! For an experience different from other places, the Regent is definitely one of the best hotels in Berlin.
