It was used as a stately home, grand hotel, officer's mess, artists' bar and retirement home. The architectural gem of Art Nouveau has been shining in new splendour since 1913, enriching West Berlin with a hotel in a class of its own.
More than 100 years after its completion, the Art Nouveau building, which was originally designed by August Endell, architect of Berlin's celebrated Hackesche Höfe complex, continues to captivate passers-by with its striking olive-green facade. In addition to meticulous restoration work, the architects incorporated new elements such as the sweeping ornamentation on the entrance canopy. They drew inspiration from the wealth of shapes and patterns found in nature. If you look closely, you will discover shell, fern and bat motifs throughout the hotel.
In the heart of Charlottenburg - surrounded by small boutiques, cosy cafes and restaurants.
Art lovers can look forward to exhibitions of contemporary photography in the C/O Gallery and the Helmut Newton Foundation. The department stores KaDeWe and Bikini Berlin are just a few minutes’ walk from the hotel and invite for a relaxed window shopping walk.
