Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 5.5 /10

    Located next to Mendelssohn Park underground station and Anhalter Banhof station, the Movenpick is only a 10-minute walk from Potsdamer Platz. Expect a 20-minute drive to get to Tegel airport (some 8 mi to be precise) and to Schoenfeld airport (15 mi away).

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    In the large corridors that lead to the rooms (the Movenpick has 243 rooms that come in various categories), you will notice some interesting decorative elements: quotes from famous authors adorn the walls and the plates with the room numbers boast colours that match the flower-pattern carpeting (the colour changes on each floor). The superior rooms are slightly bigger than the standard ones and offer a courtyard view. The wooden head boards are made of the same material as the large desk, for added harmony. The wall-to-wall carpeting matches the curtains. The small and trendy bedside tables made of olive wood are another remarkable feature. These were specially designed for the Movenpick. In addition to the standard mini-bar, all the rooms include a safe, a wardrobe, a small armchair and a TV set, which unfortunately is not a flat-screen model! An Internet connection will set you back approximately £12 per day. The high ceilings provide an added sense of spaciousness. Another modern feature of the hotel is one of the bathroom's walls, which is in fact an opaque glass pane that lets the light filter in, while providing all the intimacy you need. The bathrooms include a round washbasin surrounded by a large black marble surface, a make-up mirror, a bathtub fitted with a shower, and an original rectangular mirror held up by a bar. There is also a full kit of hospitality products. If you're lucky enough to find yourself in the Deluxe room, you'll also enjoy a huge bathtub, designed by Philippe Starck, facing the bed. There is a little table next to some armchairs, with some delicious Swiss biscuits, some apples or some sweeties.

    Overview 8.45 /10

    The history of the Berlin Movenpick hotel is rather interesting. It was built in 1914 by Siemens, opposite his very first factory, and he used it for formal events. In 2004, the establishment was bought by the Movenpick group. The decision was taken to preserve elements of its industrial past and integrate a touch of modernism. This was the concept that designers Pia Maria Schmid and Karsten Schmidt-Hoensdorf worked with. For example, noble and luxurious materials, such as European wallnut wood, were incorporated into this typically industrial setting. The entrance hall opens onto a huge wooden and rounded desk that serves as a reception, as stated in the large colourful posters that adorn the wall behind it. Apples, water and biscuits are served throughout the day. Opposite the reception desk, there are a couple of green and purple armchairs. If you walk through one of the establishment's main rooms, the one that houses the restaurant, you'll arrive at the famous courtyard of silence, opposite the lifts. Following the principles of Feng Shui, this is a noise-free area and also the only place in the hotel where smokers can enjoy a puff. In the basement there is a business centre with two computers connected to the Internet and a printer; it stays open all the time. Light sifts through oval-shaped ceiling windows and is then reflected by a mirror at ground level, which is quite an ingenious solution! The key to your room gives you access to the next-door sauna. The gym is open 24/7 and includes two machines in a simple setting: parquet floor and TV set. Just next to it there is a relaxation area with a few rounded deckchairs. You'll notice the protected stairway that is an original feature of the building. It lies under a modern chandelier that was awarded a design Oscar in 2005. Finally, the floors are decorated with industrial objects (bolts for example) taken from the former railway station located next to the hotel, for an added touch of originality.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    The Movenpick restaurant occupies a groundfloor room, under a large bay window that opens up in the summer. During the winter, when the weather is colder, the bay window is closed and the restaurant becomes a sort of winter garden. You'll also notice the red floor tiling and the red chairs, a typically Swiss colour since it features in the national flag. You'll definitely feel the influence of the original building. You'll get the impression that you're staying in one of the rooms of the former factory. In the morning, breakfast is served as a varied and delicious buffet. In addition to the traditional German breakfast, you'll enjoy Swiss specialties such as rösti (potato-based dish), baked potatoes and various types of bread. The orange juice is 100% natural. Fresh fruit, eggs and a show cooking selection are also on offer. As in the other hotels owned by the group, the kitchen is visible from the room. Supper is served from 06:30pm to 09:30pm and offers the opportunity of tasting Swiss and German specialties.

    To know

    The hotel belongs to the famous Swiss hotel group, which has a strong presence in Germany, and the building it occupies is protected. According to the National Agency for Historical Buildings, "The community's interest in protecting this building resides in its historical, architectural and artistic value; it's also a living testimony to the fighting that took place in the Anhalter station neighbourhood during the second world war." If you enjoy a good spa, you'll be happy to know that the hotel can arrange for a significant discount at the next-door Liquidorm spa.

      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.

      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.
