Situated a stone’s throw from the Berlin Zoo, this embassy turned upmarket boutique hotel has a Michelin-starred kitchen, an excellent spa, and interiors conceived by Spanish design darling Patricia Urquiola.
Even if you’ve let your membership lapse you can still enjoy the Berlin branch’s fantastic rooftop bar and bustling downstairs bistro. Just book a massage at the Cowshed Spa. Works every time.
Housed in a 19th century bank building, this high-end boutique hotel strikes the right balance between formal and friendly. Even the vault has been put into service—it’s now home to one of Berlin’s best spas.
