Trendy Kreuzberg is one of the liveliest neighbourhoods in Berlin after dark, with plenty of opportunities to drink and dance. If you want to be near the action, these are the best budget places to stay nearby – all bookable on Culture Trip.

Berlin has come a long way since the fall of the Wall in the late 1980s. This once-divided city has reinvented itself, and as a result it’s one of the most fascinating destinations in Germany. With an efficient and cheap public transport network, the must-see tourist attractions can be accessed from pretty much anywhere in Berlin – so it makes sense to stay somewhere such as Kreuzberg that’s fun to be in once the sightseeing is done for the day.

This chic hotel is in a quiet side street in the vicinity of Potsdamer Platz. A pared-back design embraces minimalism yet the rooms never feel stark or soulless. Guests can enjoy breakfast on the attractive roof terrace if the weather is fine. Lovely S rooms are the cheapest, but you won’t stretch your budget too far by upgrading to a more spacious Lovely M category.
