In Mitte, central Berlin - next to plenty of shopping boutiques, cafes, bars and the lively Hackescher Markt district.
The Weinmeister’s 88 guest rooms are spacious and feature an emphatically modern design. Large beds with 2x2metre mattresses are the main focus, with decoration favouring muted colours and modern amenities such as iMacs instead of televisions and iPads for hire. Bathrooms are cosy with oak wood shelves, handcrafted lamps, designer toiletries, fluffy robes and pyjamas.
The hotel’s luminescent façade has earned it the nickname “Golden Cage". There's a small area next to the reception/bar for using your laptop and having a coffee.
Eating and drinking
The ground floor Schwarz bar is named after the German movie actress Jessica Schwarz and serves a herbal liquor made according to her family’s secret recipe. The restaurant, which features distinctive high chairs and intimate seating arrangements, serves traditional German cuisine with a modern twist. There is also an invitation-only rooftop bar with views of the city.
The sixth floor spa offers a range of treatments and there is also a whirlpool and sauna.
Staff dressed in designer uniforms provide round-the-clock service and it appears that nothing is too much trouble for them.
