Experience a once in a lifetime stay at this stylish design hotel in the heart of Berlin, in the centre of Berlin’s downtown culture and shopping district, Friedrichstrasse. The stunning 4 star property is a fine choice for your stay in the capital, whatever the purpose for your visit, and provides all the necessary amenities and home comforts to ensure a relaxing and memorable stay.
Each of the stylish guest rooms are decorated with modern furnishings and fitted with flat screen LCD televisions, under-floor heating, mini-bar and high speed internet. A peaceful and undisturbed night’s sleep is guaranteed thanks to the double-glazed windows and individual climate control. Before heading out in the morning, be sure to spend some time on the rooftop terrace and the intimate lounge to admire the spectacular skyline and panoramic views. Evenings can be spent at the lobby bar with friends and colleagues, where you will find an impressive wine and snack menu, or simply order up room service to enjoy in the privacy of your own suite.
History enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice with the overwhelming number of museums, institutes and centres dedicated to telling the long and winding past of the capital. One museum that should not be missed is the Pergamon Museum, which is a fantastic exhibition for ancient times and holds an extensive collection of significant artefacts and relics. Two of the grandest artefacts in the museum are the gigantic Altar of Zeus and the renowned Ishtar Gate from Babylon. Smaller treasures include an impressive collection of Persian rugs and Greek and Roman art works. The guides and explanations for each piece are highly informative and are fascinating enough for kids to enjoy the visit too.
Make a quick pit-stop between the museums and other attractions at Zwolf Apostel, a delightful Italian restaurant with a strong religious influence in the décor and menu. Situated beneath the striking railway arches, the popular pizzeria serves a section of mouth-watering, thin-crust pizzas that are humorously named after the 12 disciples. One should certainly fill you up enough to carry on round the sights before heading back to the hotel or heading out again for dinner.
After dinner, why not make a trip to the pictures and catch a screening of a nonblockbuster or indie film at Movimiento, Berlin’s oldest cinema. With only three screens and a maximum capacity of around 100 visitors, this place remains warm and intimate, and the perfect location for a romantic date. There are usually a choice of German and foreign films and the programme changes regularly so you’re bound to find something to suit!
