Opened in 1958 and celebrating its 65th birthday this year, Hotel Berlin, Berlin is not only one of the most iconic hotels in the capital, but also the third largest hotel in Berlin with its 701 rooms and suites, all of which feature a very modern, individual design.
The hotel is centrally located on Lützowplatz in Berlin-Mitte, near the famous KaDeWe department store, the Ku’damm shopping street, and the Spree riverbank. From here, the vibrant day-to-day life, history and culture of Berlin's City West can be easily explored on foot, by the abundant public transport options just outside the hotel or on one of the bicycles available for rent at the reception.
Hotel Berlin, Berlin is also known as a conference and event location with its 4,000 square meters of conference space across 21 meeting rooms, including a 540-square-meter ballroom, equipped with the latest technology and suitable for events of all kinds.
The brand-new Lütze restaurant is a vibrant eatery and a focal point for a community of both locals and travelers, offering sandwiches, bowls and soups for lunch with a strong focus on high-quality ingredients sourced from local suppliers. The hotel’s fitness and wellness area features a Finnish sauna in addition to high-tech training machines such as elliptical trainers, ergometers, and treadmills.
During an extensive renovation that started in 2019 and lasted until fall 2022, rooms as well as the hotel's public spaces and meeting area were modernized and redesigned. As a BREEAM Excellent certified green building, the hotel uses renewable energy, avoids waste, and uses resources as efficiently as possible.
