    If I get to Berlin, I want to luxuriate at the Aldon.

    WOW — that boat looks really cool. I’ve mentioned this before but Club Bergheim in also a place to be experienced. It doesn’t offer any sleeping accommodations but that doesn’t stop some people from staying there from Thursday night until Monday morning ;-).

    Wow! So many unique hotels in Berlin. I really really want to go the caravan one. It looks so beautiful! Although the hostel on the boat is probably the only one of these within my budget range.

    I traveled to Berlin abiut a year and a half ago and love the city itself. Food was great, people were nice and the attractions from the past and modern day were a real sight to be seen. I cant wait to go back again one day. Thabsk loved the post. 🙂

    Great list! Hüttenpalast is my favourite, it looks amazing!

    August 30, 2015 at 6:06 pm

    Berlin is full of so many interesting hotels. I live here so although I have heard of most of them, I haven’t really gotten to see them from a tourist’s perspective. The great thing though, is that many of the hotels on this list like nHow and The Michelberger have events as well. Bikini also has a bunch of concept stores attached to it as well.

    That 25 Hours hotel looks amazing, so bright and green! I’ll probably never get to try out these places as I always stay with family when I’m in Berlin, but your recommendations look fantastic!
