Housed in apartments that were once home to the cream of Berlin society, the Flair Hotel Riehmers Hofgarten offers a haven of peace and quiet at the heart of one of the busiest districts in the city. It is moderately sized and provides a welcome setting where you can put your feet up between a day of sightseeing and a night out! Even though the decor is a touch old-fashioned, it has plenty of charm to make up for the lack of relaxation facilities. It is best suited for couples without children.

    Location 6.5 /10

    The Flair Riehmers Hofgarten is located in the lively Kreuzberg district, surrounded by a plethora of restaurants and bars and boasting a peaceful and verdant little old courtyard. The tourist hotspots (Gendarmenmarkt, Brandenburg Gate, Kurfürstendamm, etc.) are a mere 10 minute metro journey from the nearest underground station (Mehringdamm).

    Accommodation 6.85 /10

    The hotel has 22 rooms: 3 singles and 19 doubles... not to mention its secret weapon, a 100m² apartment suite that opened to guests in 2006. It is accessed via a hidden entrance in the inner courtyard of the neighbouring building. However, the standard rooms can also be proud of their decor (subdued and modern), size (spacious) and amenities, which include custom designed furniture, '90's artwork exhibited on the wall, large windows, a television (flat screen or normal), mini bar and a bathroom with a shower gel dispenser, bathtub or shower, and a hair dryer. Another charming detail is the way the old parquet flooring under the red carpet creaks under the footsteps of guests... Still, it is a pity the rooms do not contain a safe (available at reception), air conditioning or windows with double glazing for those overlooking the street.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    The doors of the Flair Hotel Riehmers Hofgarten open onto a little lobby that looks rather like a lounge in a private apartment. Old orange sofas and black tables create a cocoon-like setting, and if it were not for the small reception counter, the fact you are in a hotel could easily escape your notice. The antique furniture, parquet flooring and decor combine to give a rather charming old fashioned effect. To the right, the main entrance of the old apartments leads to the stairs, or alternatively you can take the lift up to the various floors. It is a pity the establishment does not have a gym, sauna or business centre, but it would be impossible to install such bulky facilities in this historic building. A laptop computer is provided by management for guests.

    Food and drink 6.90 /10

    The neighbouring restaurant is managed by another company, but guests staying at the hotel can take breakfast and dinner there and charge their meals directly to their room bill. The buffet breakfast is a simple but ample meal. A Swiss chef manages the dinner service, using fresh ingredients for the menu that changes daily. A selection of French, German and Swiss dishes is served up at reasonable prices: £32 for three dishes and £44 for five. For example, you can enjoy a beef fillet with Béarnaise sauce, various cheeses and crème brulée. One small drawback is that it is closed at lunchtime, but it makes up for this with its bar area and the concerts it stages from time to time. In any case, the district is full of a diverse variety of establishments.

    Everything that is small is beautiful... and a member of the Flair group, which has several smaller establishments among its ranks Opened in 1998, the Flair took up residence in a former hotel and a number of modifications were necessary in order to improve the premises without changing the structure of this old building, for example, a restaurant was added and the guest rooms and bathrooms were renovated, etc.

      The Berlin Movenpick hotel is much like its home town. It's a surprisingly trendy establishment. It was built in 1914 by Herr Siemens, opposite his first factory, and still shows many industrial architectural elements of that era, associated with a modern interior and noble materials such as European wallnut wood. With items taken from the ancient next-door railway station decorating each floor, the industrial interior is complete. The establishment includes 243 fully-equipped rooms (the standard ones feature a bathtub designed by Philippe Starck), a business centre with two computers connected to the Internet, a gym and a sauna. The restaurant and its large bay window which opens up in the summer are worthy of mention.

      This two-star hotel belongs to the French chain Accor, and enjoys a good geographical location about 10 minutes on foot from Potsdamer Platz. It has a simple design and offers bright and comfortable guest rooms. Even though they are rather small, the establishment has thought up an ingenious way of transforming the double rooms into triples: by featuring a desk that can be converted into a bed. The Ibis Potsdamer Platz serves breakfast from early in the morning, starting at 4:00am, which is handy for anyone who may have a plane or train to catch.

      The original facade of this establishment, one of the German capital's finest, says a great deal about its illustrious past, and the Hôtel de Rome is in fact one of the few luxury hotels to have taken up residence in a period establishment. Having said that, it's still hard to imagine the wonders concealed behind its walls, a tasteful combination of old and contemporary, from the superb entrance hall to the wonderful spa housed in the building's former vault. This hotel comes highly recommended to all those who have the means to stay there, and if you haven't, at least try the restaurant!

These assets did not leave celebrities such as Greta Garbo and Charlie Chaplin or still, many politicians, who all stayed at this hotel, unmoved.

      Most of the guests staying at this elegant hotel, which stands between the avenues of 'Unter den Linden' and 'Friedrichstraße', do not know about its history. The chunk of wall displayed near the front door is the first clue. Built in 1987, the Westin Grand Hotel replaced a shopping centre destroyed during the Great War. This establishment inherited its predecessor's refinement, as well as a few almost identically reconstructed former characteristics. The rest of the hotel teeters between a classical and a contemporary style. Everyone should be able to find what they are looking for here... as long as they can afford it of course!

The truth is, this very popular upmarket hotel in the country's capital is, in fact, located between numbers 9 and 13 on a discreet little street in the select Mitte district of the city. This once sad little corner of former East Germany has since been taken over by a large number of art galleries, boutiques, lively bars, and even celebrities. With its minimalist white and fuchsia pink geometric decor, the hotel will undoubtedly appeal to a young and trendy clientele.
