Berlin has 22 five-star luxury hotels competing for your business and there are now over three times the number of hotel rooms of all grades than there were when the Wall came down. So ask for a discount! The Hotel Guru's choice of the best places to stay in Berlin ranges from the sumptuous Hotel de Rome, one of Rocco Forte's finest to Die Fabrik a budget establishment ideal for those wanting to save their pennies for the pubs and clubs.

Best places to stay in Berlin - pensions

Many of the new hotels are rather characterless tour group processors. But for people who mind about where they stay....for you...there are two very typically Berlin types of hotel to be tried.

There are a number of pensions, often in converted pre-war apartment blocks, which have added modern touches that make them into something quite new, refreshing and comfortable.

Askanischer Hof and Art Nouveau are examples that we like.

Best places to stay in Berlin for the design conscious

There are others that have gone way down the designer route and have become art objects in themselves, the Arte Luise Kunsthotel being a prime example!

Lux 11 is not so extreme, but will please the young and design-conscious. Brandenburger Hof caters for the same people once they have become successful.

The Ellington too is is a stylish choice with a great restaurant.

Best places to stay in Berlin for traditionalists

Traditionalists are well catered for. The best places to stay in Berlin for those who prefer their style classical include Myer's Hotel - it even features an English style tea room.

Or perhaps The Hotel Adlon Kempinski, Berlin's grand dame, think large luxurious and sophisticated. The Heckers Hotel is a also good bet.

Best luxury places to stay in Berlin

If it's full on grandeur you're looking for in your place to stay in Berlin, Schlosshotel im Grunewald is a 1912 courtier's palace decorated by Karl Lagerfeld, in the leafy suburbs.

The Regent is another obvious choice. Home from home for the glitterati, it also boasts two Michelin starred dining and has long been feted as one of the best places to stay in Berlin.

All in all the burgeoning hotel scene makes Berlin an even more desirable place to visit, both for the young (there is a vibrant club scene) and the not-so-young (the city is amazingly rich in culture, from museums to music).
