If you’re able to fit a few days in Berlin into your schedule in between Art Basel events (and we suggest you do), you’ll want to take a look at Whitewaller‘s favorite accommodations in the city when booking a place to stay.

Gorki Apartments Mitte
On a tree-lined street, guests can find Gorki Apartments. Offering 36 apartments, the building has a unique flair—and no lobby. Instead, visitors walk through a lush courtyard that leads to a reception office.
Whitewaller recommends: Staying in a penthouse.
Hotel de Rome Mitte
With 145 rooms, Hotel de Rome is an amenity-rich hotel with an array of unusual services. La Banca Restaurant and Bar offers elevated culinary and spirit options, and the Opera Court and Rooftop Terrace are both exquisite options for a meeting or an afternoon tea. Enjoy Spa de Rome and the hotel’s beautiful surroundings.

Having recently added a new 23-room floor with the help of Jonathan Tuckey Design, Michelberger is an independent and creative hotel, bar, and restaurant, offering guests an eclectic mix of live music, exceptional food, and cocktails galore. The restaurant prides itself on its organic, local, and fresh food, and the hotel’s ambience provides an unforgettable experience.

Das Stue Tiergarten
Designed by the architect Johann Emil Schaudt in the late 1930s, Das Stue boasts minimalist design (with Patricia Urquiola at the helm of the public space’s artistic direction and design) and is complemented by a sauna, an indoor swimming pool, a gym, a library lounge, and two restaurants—The Casual and Cinco.

The Sir Savigny Hotel Berlin Charlottenburg
The Sir Savigny Hotel Berlin opened in 2016 to provide visitors with an urban, design-savvy hotel with 41 rooms, three suites, a library, a lounge, and a Winter Garden with a view of the courtyard garden. With midcentury classics and custom-made furniture, the hotel shines with distinct character.
Whitewaller recommends: Eating at The Butcher—the hotel’s burger bar.
Hotel Zoo Charlottenburg
At home in an 1891 structure by Alfred Messel, today Hotel Zoo blends the iconic architecture of its original design with a whimsical style reminiscent of a contemporary Alice in Wonderland. Each of its 127 rooms and 14 suites boasts unique interiors and details like April Aromatics bath products, bathrobes and towels by Maison Martin Margiela, and photographs from Andreas Kock’s “Stalker” series.
Whitewaller recommends: Visiting Grace Restaurant, or one of the hotel’s multiple bars.
