Whether you are in Berlin to explore the city’s Cold War history, vibrant art scene or experience its buzzing nightlife, these apartments will cater to your every need and make you feel right at home during your trip.

Amano Home

Hotel

This monochrome dream, located slap-bang in the middle of Berlin’s central borough, the Mitte, offers the minimalist design you’d expect from such a cool city. The hotel describes its location as the Bermuda Triangle of boredom – precisely because ennui disappears when you unpack your case – and accordingly, there are bike rentals on hand for exploring the nearby galleries and some of the city’s best restaurants. Don’t miss the buzzy Amano bar and Israeli-accented Mani restaurant, both just a short walk away.

Capri By Fraser Berlin

Capri is located on what’s known as Museum Island, so staying here, you will find yourself in one of the more touristy parts of the city. However, with so many museums nearby, it’ll be easy to tick the main attractions off your itinerary – we recommend the Humboldt Forum, a crossroads for the arts and sciences. The serviced apartments are well-designed and family friendly, and provide access to an onsite restaurant that is open for every meal, should you wish to focus your decision-making energy on which gallery to visit next.

Circus Apartments Berlin

Located centrally, in Mitte, but near the bohemian neighbourhood of Prenzlauer Berg, Circus Apartments invites you to imagine you’re a local artist who’s doing very well for themselves. Each apartment is individually designed and the concierge service has your every need covered – whether you want a personal trainer, restaurant recommendations or just to track down some aspirin after a long night of clubbing.

Downtown Apartments Mitte

Sleek modernism with a touch of Berlin industrial quirk characterises the Downtown Apartments, which are located centrally in a quiet, residential part of Mitte. These beautifully finished apartments are serviced weekly, with an on-call concierge service available to indulge your (almost) every whim, including optional breakfast delivery. That said, you’re also just steps away from local cafés, restaurants and bars.

Gorki Apartments Berlin

“Here you will become a real Berliner,” Gorki’s website announces, complete with your own doorbell and mailbox. Far be it from us to dispute what makes a real Berliner, but Gorki does seem to have captured some of the spirit of the German capital here, thanks to an effortless mix of classic European luxury and polished, angular style. On the edge of Prenzlauer Berg, near the excellent Scotch & Sofa bar, you’re guaranteed an authentic Berlin experience.

Lux11 Berlin

Hotel

An ideal option for couples, some of these beautifully designed, luxury apartments feature open-plan bathrooms so make sure you are comfortable enough with your travel partner before booking. Once you’ve had a good night’s sleep, grab breakfast at the adjoining café-cum-printer Type Hype, and make sure you sit at the counter to get a real flavour of the local Mitte community.

Wilde Aparthotel

Apartment

If you are looking for an apartment near Checkpoint Charlie – the popular relic of the Cold War – then Wilde should be your first choice. Ideal for families – it even provides activity packs – every apartment is spacious and modern, with a much-needed coffee machine to help you keep your energy up. If you’ve come to Berlin to explore the city’s history, then the immersive Berlin Wall Panorama, Trabi Safari Tour and Wall Museum are a mere brick’s-throw away.

Louisa's Place

With an aesthetic that possesses more of a classical slant, Louisa’s Place has an old Berlin charm that contrasts the sharp edges of the Brutalist metropolis beyond. Housed in an Edwardian-era building – a rarity in this area – it has its own pool, sauna and wellness centre. When you feel duly restored and ready to face the city – Alexanderplatz, a main interchange, is just a short walk away, zipping you to anywhere you wish to go.
