Honigmond Garden Hotel is nice and centrally located, just a short walk from Friedrichstraße, Oranienburgerstraße and key sights such as the [node:169105].
The hotel has a total of 60 bedrooms spread throughout two different buildings (the main building is just 300 metres from the Garden Hotel). The Garden Hotel offers the cheapest rooms yet still offers tremendous charm in a building that dates from 1845. All rooms are uniquely decorated, with special touches that include iron-frame beds, framed paintings, antiques and wooden floors. Some rooms also have four-poster beds. Rooms overlook either the street or the garden, but note that street-facing rooms can be noisy although they are generally larger than garden-facing rooms. Also available are garden cottages with kitchens and skylights.
The Honigmond is all about the garden, with its Koi pond and fountain. It's the perfect place to relax after a day's shopping, or for a lunchtime read. There's also a pleasant lounge (with an honesty bar) to relax in.
Eating and drinking
Honigmond Restaurant, which first opened in 1920, is conveniently located in the hotel’s main building and serves traditional German cuisine. There's also a lunchtime buffet, and coffee and cakes are served throughout the day.
In keeping with the Honigmond atmosphere, the owners are very friendly and hospitable, going out of their way to make guests feel at home.
Who stays there
The hotel's name - it means “honeymoon” in English - says it all. Couples and romantics will love it here, though its central location makes it a pretty good option for anyone.
It costs 10 euros for a parking space.
