Amy Adejokun Section editor

You might be wondering how the Lux 11, which opened in 2005, got its name. 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.

    Location 6.38 /10

    The Lux 11 stands on a discreet little street in the now rather exclusive Mitte district of the city. It is close to 3 metro stations (Alexanderplatz, Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz and Weinmeisterstrasse) and is certainly feeling the effects of the recent increase in interest in this once sad little part of former East Germany. Now there are countless art galleries, boutiques, lively bars, hotels, and even celebrities in this part of town, not to mention the monuments, museums and other tourist attractions (including the television tower, the Museum of the Former GDR, various churches, etc).

    Accommodation 9.30 /10

    It is not permitted to alter the general layout of this former KGB building, so the corridors, although not unpleasant, are still as intricate as they were back in the day and the period stairwell (complete with an antique lift and doors) is light years away from the futuristic surroundings of the rest of the hotel. Although all of the hotel's 72 guest rooms vary in size, they do all feature the same heterogeneous design cleverly combining straight and geometrical lines with feminine colours. The soft shades of the walls and furniture provide the perfect accompaniment to the brightly-coloured fabrics. Indeed, opposing worlds attract and complement each other at the Lux 11. In terms of amenities you'll find everything you need and more, including a plasma screen television, DVD player, fax, phones (corded and cordless), safe, Wifi, individual air conditioning, flip flop-style slippers, bathrobes, and even a fully equipped kitchen! The bathrooms, which open onto the bedroom area, are also amazing and come with a rain shower and a selection of hospitality products from the Korres brand. You might be interested to know that the building also houses 4 superb penthouse suites and there are rumours that the hotel has already played host to certain celebrities...

    Overview 8.95 /10

    It's hard to imagine the futuristic world concealed behind the elegant facade of the Lux 11, and harder still to find the entrance to this extra-terrestrial hotel! As soon as you step foot in the lobby, you'll realise that the Lux 11 is no ordinary hotel, perhaps due to the Adidas uniforms the receptionists are wearing, or maybe because of the immaculate white surroundings of the reception, perfectly complemented by the fuchsia pink of the corridor... As you get to spend more time here, you'll realise that your first - undoubtedly good - impressions were right, particularly as you venture into the green lights of the lifts and wander around the dark intricate corridors. One thing you will notice is the lack of a spa, which, when you take the rest of the hotel into account, could have been a real architectural and decorative treasure. Nevertheless, the Lux 11 does compensate in some way for this with the neighbouring beauty salon, where guests can enjoy a spot of pampering, and a clothes shop. There is no business centre here either but there is a laptop computer available to guests on request.

    Food and drink 7.90 /10

    Although all of the guest rooms have their own fully-equipped kitchen, the hotel's restaurant, the Luchs ('Lynx' in German and pronounced 'luxe', meaning 'luxury' in French!), is well worth a visit! In terms of decor, it should come as no surprise that, true to form, the Lux continues to shy away from the expected, so you'll find the restaurant bears no resemblance to the rest of the hotel. A variety of Italian-Germanic dishes, with salads, pasta dishes, and various other main courses starting at £19, are served in the plush surroundings of the large, 100-seater dining room. There is also a tiny bar at the far end of the room that is open from 6:30pm to 2:00am (4:00am on weekends). Apart from drinks it serves only peanuts, which is just as well as this is a smoking area!

    To know

    Most visitors to this ultra-contemporary hotel, a member of the coveted Design Hotels collection, are unfamiliar with its past, but its history goes back a lot further and is far more interesting than you would think! Indeed, these buildings once housed KGB agents, which explains the intricate corridors... Thanks to its success, the Lux 11 is soon to be joined by a second hotel, so keep an eye on this location.

      Much like many of its sister establishments, the Radisson Blu, which opened in 2004, quickly identified the potential of this Berlin neighbourhood situated in former East Germany. The renown of the group and the original architectural style took care of the rest, turning it into one of the capital's most famous hotels. Unlike the cold and charmless design favoured by other hotel groups, this establishment has created a fun atmosphere, in particular thanks to its massive aquarium in the middle of the lobby. This hotel caters to all: couples, families, and lone travellers of all ages!

      It's not easy to pronounce the name of this four-star establishment, located at the intersection of three trendy districts of the German capital: Mitte, Friedrichshain and Friedrichstadt. However, you'll quickly feel at ease in this establishment that is both classical and modern. Its reasonable size (144 rooms), conference rooms and leisure facilities make it an ideal place for both holidays and business trips. The hotel's management describes the establishment's style as "timeless and classical".

      The Novotel Berlin Mitte is a good hotel for families, with, among other things, communicating rooms, a sofa bed in most rooms, a special children's menu, and a Wii game console provided in the entrance hall. This is the reason why the establishment is often fully-booked during the school holidays, long weekends, and during the month of December, which is the Christmas market period. It's located half-way between Postdamer and Alexanderplatz, two of Berlin's liveliest areas, both of which can be reached easily thanks to the nearby Spittelmarkt metro station. Furthermore, it includes a gym, a sauna and a huge car park with 100 spaces. The hotel belongs to the Accor French hotel chain.

      The aptly named Alexander Plaza is a boutique hotel with 94-guestrooms housed in a late 19th century building, just a stone's throw from Alexanderplatz. Renovated in 2005, the Alexander Plaza has managed to retain some original elements, while adapting to the requirements of today's hospitality business. The result is a hotel which is modern without showing off, unlike other contemporary hotels of Berlin, and warm to its guests...

      Having opened in 1970, the Park Inn obviously had a hunch before anyone else of the potential of this district in former East Germany. However, in spite of several renovations, the Park Inn's various facilities are not all equal. In terms of decoration, for example, some of the rooms display a modern decor while some others have not aged well, such as the breakfast room. The size of the hotel (1,020 guest rooms) will scare more than one away, but it will definitely make bungee jumpers happy: The hotel organises maiden jumps from the 39th floor! Therefore, we recommend this hotel to people who are not afraid of heights or anyone not horrified by large establishments.

      This perfectly pleasant three-star establishment has plenty to offer, not least its good location in one of the trendier parts of Berlin, stylish surroundings and good value for money. The Amano is located close to Rosenthalerplatz, between the Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg districts of the city, and has been open since August 2009. The bright, all-grey entrance hall is welcoming and features original furniture and if you're a fan of photography you'll no doubt appreciate the work of the German artist adorning the walls. The hotel also boasts a special room equipped with two computers and free Wi-Fi access. Despite being a little on the small side, the guest rooms here are nevertheless perfectly practical and come with all the basic amenities you would need.

      The Casa Camper boasts a prime location and is one of Berlin's more stylish, modern hotels. The remarkable decor here is both original and low-key, and great attention has been paid to every last detail, maintaining the harmony between the fine materials and industrial decorative elements found throughout the spacious surroundings. The guest rooms at the hotel have an impressive floor area of 30m², and if you have an iPod you'll be pleased to know that there are docking stations both in the guest rooms and in the hotel gym. If you're someone who likes to keep fit and watch what they eat you'll be delighted with the daily buffet breakfast, which consists of fresh fruit and vegetables, plus a selection of Japanese dishes. We would also recommend you check out the reading room on the top floor, if only for its impressive views across the city.

      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!

      The Adlon Kempinski is a historic luxury hotel in Berlin, also considered one of the world's most beautiful hotels. At the foot of the Brandenburg Gate, this highly luxurious hotel aspires to be the worthy successor of the illustrious hotel located on the same spot and destroyed during World War 2, but it does claim a modern facet to its service and decor. Managed by the Kempinski group, this hotel is hailed by all as a gem of architecture, with perfect technique and ambiance. These assets did not leave celebrities such as Greta Garbo and Charlie Chaplin or still, many politicians, who all stayed at this hotel, unmoved. Ideal for a little break or even just a little glimpse!

      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!

In addition to the varied set of facilities, which include a swimming pool, a gym, a hair stylist and a beauty salon, the Hilton also boasts an à la carte restaurant that serves regional gourmet specialities.

      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.

The attractive combination of its ultra-modern design and the Communist-era architecture is impressive. It is a moderate-sized establishment looked after in a superlative manner by an efficient, friendly team, and is well worth a stay if you can afford the rates!
