Berlin hotels 2023: Best places to stay for budget and luxury breaks

With its hedonistic nightlife, cutting-edge culture and surprisingly reasonable prices, Berlin ticks many boxes for a brilliant city break. It’s as good a choice for history buffs – see what remains of the Berlin Wall and check out ‘Checkpoint Charlie’ – as it is for creatives and anyone keen to soak up a little culture.

Berlin is a city that is constantly evolving, and over the past decade, the number of hotels in the German capital has doubled with options now as varied and dynamic as the city itself. If you’re looking for a luxury stay, the Rocco Forte brand is a great place to start. But the city is also full of timeless classics and independent chains ensuring that every taste and preference is catered for.

Whether you’re stay is long or short, you deserve the best place to bed down in Berlin. And these are some of the most stylish and great-value digs in town.

Neighbourhood: Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg

The colourful interior of nhow Berlin is a feast for the senses

(nhow Berlin)

With a cantilevered structure jutting out over the River Spree, this 304-room hotel is walking distance to the bars and clubs of Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain (just pray you get past the doormen at Watergate and Berghain). The Karim Rashid-designed property is an explosion of candy colours and sinuous shapes, with round-the-clock room service offering guitars and decks for late-night jam sessions and DJ sets. There’s a riverside terrace for sunset cocktails, saunas to sweat out the previous evening’s excess, and 5pm check-out on Sundays.
