Expert review of Hotel Askanischer Hof

A charmingly eccentric historical hotel well located on the Ku’damm.

If you prefer old-fashioned charm over modern design, I'd recommend trying out the Askanischer Hof. The place exudes an atmopshere of Alt-Berlin, with period rooms, Victorian-era decoration and vintage photos of previous guests on the walls. While it's not a hip hotel by any means, hipsters like David Bowie stayed here in the 1980s.

Location: 

The Askanischer Hof is well-located on the famous Kurfürstendamm (Ku'damm) boulevard, a short walk from attractions like the KaDeWe daprtment store, the Berlin Zoo and several theatres.

Bedrooms: 

The best way to describe the decor of the 16 bedrooms is...wonderfully eccentric. They're laden with a seemingly indiscriminate selection of antique furnishings, evoking the "glorious" 1920s with vintage photos, gramophones, Prussian desks and leather sofas. Rooms that overlook the Ku'damm benefit from having double-glazed windows to cut the noise down.

Public areas: 

The hotel's hallways are atmospheric, featuring old drawings and photographs. There's a small area for book exchanges and a small courtyard out the back.

Eating and drinking: 

There are no restaurants here as such, but the substantial breakfast can be taken in the elaborately decorated dining room, with its gold-leaf stucco ceiling, velvet-covered chairs and embroidered tablecloths.

Service: 

Service is wonderful. Hostess Eva Glinicke has been running the place for more than 40 years and knows a thing or two about making her guests comfortable, charmed and happy.
