Casa Camper’s location in the heart of Berlin Mitte makes it an excellent base for touring many of the city's key sights, like the Museum Insel and Unter Den Linden, as well as giving superb access to shops, restaurants, bars and more.
The 51 bedrooms are highly distinctive, painted as they are in a vibrant yet strangely pleasing red. They offer views across Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg districts and are as uncluttered as you'd expect given the hotel's designer credentials. The stone floors and blonde-wood wardrobes are a nice touch, as are the in-room amenities, which include free WiFi, iPod docking stations, bathrobes and - you guessed it - Camper slippers.
The hip lounge area has a selection of books and magazines to browse as well as offering great views across the city.
Eating and drinking
The top-floor Tentempié area serves a complimentary all-day buffet as well as breakfast in the morning and snacks throughout the day. The restaurant, Dos Palliolos, serves trendy and tasty Asian tapas and has a show kitchen where you can see Albert Raurich, former El Bulli chef, at work.
The Casa Camper also has a modern, well-equipped fitness centre and a spacious sauna onsite. Bicycles are available for hire in the lobby - a great way to get around Berlin.
Service is like the hotel - distinguished yet down to earth.
