Derag Residenz Hotel Henriette
Neue Rossstraße 13, 10179 Tel (030) 246 009 00 Fax (030) 246 009 40 Rooms 54

The small and intimate Henriette is the nicest – and the most unknown – of the many Derag hotels in town. Despite the relatively modern building, Hotel Henriette exudes an incredibly elegant, historic flair, with oak furniture, precious carpets and beds. The hotel provides excellent service.

Hotel Gendarm
Charlottenstraße 61, 10117 Tel (030) 206 06 60 Fax (030) 206 066 66 Rooms 27

The Gendarm has a reputation as one of the best and most popular smaller hotels in Berlin, however reports suggest that quality may be slipping. Nevertheless, a great location off Gendarmenmarkt and traditional, elegantly furnished rooms make this a serious competitor of the big five-star hotels nearby.

Mövenpick Hotel Berlin
Schöneberger Straße 3, 10963 Tel (030) 230 060 Fax (030) 230 061 99 Rooms 243

Hotel de Rome
Behrenstraße 37, 10117 Tel (030) 460 60 90 Fax (030) 460 60 92 000 Rooms 146

Hidden behind the classicist façade of a former 19th-century bank, this is a shining star among the city’s first-class hotels. The interior design is very modern, with subdued colours complementing the historic setting. The service is impeccable and the fairly large rooms offer wonderful views of Opernplatz.

Sofitel am Gendarmenmarkt
Charlottenstraße 50–52, 10117 Tel (030) 203 750 Fax (030) 203 751 00 Rooms 92

Westin Grand
Friedrichstraße 158–164, 10117 Tel (030) 202 70 Fax (030) 202 733 62 Rooms 358

A lavish hotel built at the end of the 19th century in Empire and Secessionist styles. The main hall is particularly impressive, with a huge atrium and a stunning staircase. It is close to most historic sites as well as a variety of good restaurants and cafés.

A & O Hostel am Zoo
Joachimstahler Straße 1–3, 10623 Tel (030) 889 135-0 Fax (030) 889 135-40 Rooms 113

Located in a former Aldi budget grocery store, this hostel is a favourite among budget travellers looking for a cheap night’s sleep. Conveniently located opposite the Zoo railway station, it offers packages such as combined hostel and dancing club weekends, which appeal to the younger guests.

Hotel Astoria
Fasanenstraße 2, 10623 Tel (030) 312 40 67 Fax (030) 312 50 27 Rooms 32

Managed by the same family for three generations, this intimate hotel occupies a 19th-century building and is considered to be one of the best of its kind in town. The rooms are comfortable and the lack of a restaurant is made up for by the hotel’s proximity to Savignyplatz.
