The Gates is a small hotel set apart from the bustling city life of Berlin, but that nevertheless harbours a number of secrets... Indeed, despite the unassuming feel of the place, it has provided a roof over the heads of several celebrities who were friends with the owner's previous wife, a ballerina. Today, the hotel's real draw is its historical features, which are exemplified by the antique decor of the communal areas. There is nothing particularly special about the revamped guests rooms or the rest of the hotel. This establishment is a good option for visitors looking for peace and quiet during their stay.
