The central Mitte district is the premium choice for hotel accommodation in Berlin, and this Hot Rate hotel is at its heart. Literally translating to mean ‘the middle’, the Mitte district sits idyllically on the banks of the River Spree and is home to the capital’s most famous monuments and tourist attractions. Although hotel guests are within walking distance of Berlin’s main must-see sights, they are also able to explore the greater city area via the numerous network of S-Bahn and U-Bahn, as well as dedicated bus routes to the city’s quieter suburban neighbourhoods.
Just a short walk away is the magnificent Brandenburg Gate; an imposing neoclassical arch and symbol of German unification. Once inaccessible due to the Berlin Wall, the Gate is emblematic of Germany’s turbulent history and subsequent restoration. Hotel guests are recommended to visit at night as the monument is breathtakingly illuminated against the city skyline.
Also in the area is the equally momentous Reichstag building, originally home to the Imperial rulers of the German Empire. The Reichstag is open to the public to tour, the highlight of the building undoubtedly being the huge glass dome which offers views down to the Bundestag parliament floor as well as panoramas across the entire capital.
Lovers of culture and the arts will enjoy the hotel’s proximity to the city’s famous Museum Island. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999, the island is home to 5 globally renowned institutions; the Altes Museum, Neues Museum, Alte Nationalgalerie Museum, Bode Museum and the Pergamon Museum. Each establishment boasts a uniquely nuanced collection of historical, cultural and artistic artefacts, including the iconic ancient Egyptian bust of Queen Nefertiti and a host of 19th century masterpieces.
