Search the best hotels in Berlin
There’s so much to Berlin, and that’s probably why for so many people these days it’s the ultimate international city. The nightlife is hipper than New York and it’s as culturally and historically rich as London or Paris, plus it’s always been a powerhouse of creativity. And when it comes to the best places to stay in Berlin it’s an understatement to say you’re inundated with choice.
Berlin is multicultural and gritty, but also glamorous and grand. The impressive architecture and statuary sit in amongst welcoming green spaces and fantastic cafe strips where there’s something going on 24hours a day. And, of course, the food is everything it’s cracked up to be. This is a big city, but the districts you’ll want to visit are small and compact and easy to get around on foot. So even after a few days you’ll develop a relationship with this place. It makes a difference where you stay, but our Gurus have recommendations for the best places to stay in Berlin all over town, so if you choose your area first it might help you with a short list.
Where To Stay - which neighbourhood?
- Berlin’s centre is called ‘Mitte’ or middle, and this is where you’ll find many of the tourist hubs like Potsdamer Platz and Alexanderplatz, plus the Reichstag and reams of great cafes and restaurants.
- Just to the north is elegant, residential Prenzlauer Berg. The area is incredibly family-friendly, with plenty of cafés, ice cream shops and playgrounds.
- Charlottenburg has recently been redeveloped and is now a great place to find chic hotels as well as boutique shopping. The magnificent Charlottenburg Palace is an absolute must-visit!
- Friedrichshain was part of East Berlin, but has been gentrified since reunification. That said, it’s still a bit edgy; featuring plenty of indie cinemas, skate parks, great breweries and more.
- While across the canal Kreuzberg has been edgy and liberal for a while.
- Alt-Treptow and Neukölln are perfect for those wanting a bit more peace and quiet; the districts are home to the Plänterwald forests and Treptower Park, but are still close enough to all the city's main sights.
What Not to Miss
Berlin is rife with iconic sights and sites, both old and new.
- Obviously the 18th century neoclassical icon that is the Brandenburg Gate is unmissable - and not just because of its size, but many people would argue that so are some of the dilapidating communist structures, made famous recently for the wonderful way they’ve been set upon by street artists and graffiti artists. Seeing these places, along with the remains of The Wall, Checkpoint Charlie, Hitler’s Bunker and the Holocaust Memorial will really give you a sense of the drama that’s unfolded here.
- Berlin has had a disproportionately large effect on European history and it’s been the location for more than its fair share of meaningful events. And you can see this wherever you look, from the Reichstag to Sanssouci Palace and the Museumsinsel (which translates to ‘Museum Island’). Museum Island is also known for the Pergamon Museum, which sits outside Berlin’s own history and has an amazing collection of world renowned Ancient Greek, Middle-Eastern and Islamic art and artefacts.
- The Deutsches Historisches Museum is where to go if you do want to focus on Berlin’s, and Germany’s, history. The Gemäldegalerie is an incredible collection of European art housed in an incredible building, and the Berlinische Galerie is Berlin’s modern art and design museum.
- These days Berlin also has more than its fair share of cool. Private galleries are bursting with creativity, the theatre and music venues seem to be everywhere and always offering something new, and you’ll find the hippest DJs in the clubs. And of course this has always been a place to eat, drink and be merry.
- Take a break in Tiergarten Park when you need it.
Berlin’s energy is probably why its story is one of evolution and survival, despite hundreds of tumultuous years. Vibrant and cutting edge there’s really something for everyone here. Our Guru's recommendations for the best places to stay in Berlin range 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.

Alt-Treptow and Neukölln
- Die Fabrik, set in a pre-war brick factory, is a great way to see Berlin on a budget. This hostel offers both individual bedrooms and dormitories for groups, whilst there's also a cafe with a courtyard where you can relax and meet other guests.
- The quirky Huttenplast offers truly unique accommodation, ranging from caravans and log cabins to more conventional bedrooms. With family rooms available and bikes to hire if you want to explore the city, it's a fun and decent value all round stay.
For An Apartment
- If you think you'd prefer the privacy of a self-catering option then browse through the wide variety available online with our partner, Booking.com.
- Berlin has two airports: Berlin-Tegel and Berlin-Schönefeld. Berlin-Tegel is marginally closer to the centre of town, but Berlin-Schönefeld is being expanded, so watch this space. From Berlin-Tegel to the centre of town it’s just 20 minutes on the X9 Express Bus, which departs every ten minutes. From Berlin-Schönefeld you can catch the train on the S9 line to Ostkreuz, then transfer to lines S5, S7 or S75 to get to Berlin Central Station. Or, you can take the regional RE7 and RB14 trains which take around 30 minutes to reach Central Station.
- Berlin Central Station is an international rail station, which connects to the Eurostar lines as well as other European railways, so you can easily arrive by train.
- If you want to hire a car while in Berlin we recommend you visit our online partner, Rentalcars.
- Berlin is busiest over the summer, so if you’re not put off by cooler weather then it’s probably best to visit when it’s quieter in April/May or September/October. During these shoulder seasons you can expect weather averages around 10°C, and for accommodation to be better value.
- If you like the cold Berlin is also a great place to visit during the Christmas season - the city is beautifully decorated and there’s plenty of gluhwein and good cheer.
