Star rating:

4

Art Nouveau charm in elegant surroundings.

This hotel, once the home of silent movie star Asta Nielsen, dates back to 1895. It was converted into a guesthouse in the 1950s but the building has retained much of its original appeal. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for something more intimate than a corporate or designer hotel.

Location

The hotel enjoys a central Charlottenburg location, on a quiet, upmarket backstreet off a main shopping drag. The hotel is surrounded by beautiful buildings, art galleries and boutiques, and is directly opposite the well known Literaturhaus.

Bedrooms

The 14 bedrooms are large, comfortable and feature elegant period pieces from the 1920s and 1930s. Rooms feature Art Nouveau windows, high decorative ceilings, dramatic carpets and satinwood beds with matching wardrobes. Bathrooms could probably use some renovating, however.

Public areas

There are books, magazines and international newspapers available to borrow in the hall.

Eating and drinking

A buffet breakfast is included in the rates and though no evening meals are served, there are plenty of restaurants around the hotel to dine in. There is also a fridge stocked with reasonably-priced water and beer in the hallway.

Service

Staff are very friendly and unobstrusive.

Who stays there

Budget conscious travellers, nostalgia lovers and creatives.
