Casa camper Berlin
This is the second hotel venture of the Spanish shoe giant Camper, and like its sister hotel in Barcelona it effortlessly combines minimalist chic with down-to-earth and intelligent comfort.
Once again, interior gurus Jordi Tio and Fernando Amat (creators of Barcelona’s iconic interior design store Vinçon) are behind the hotel’s fresh and functional design. Clean lines and a restrained use of colour (dominated by wine-red and grey) are offset by quirky details like retro-style bedside phones or window blinds emblazoned with the room numbers. The hub of the hotel is the seventh-floor Tentempié lounge with views over the rooftops of Berlin.
Here you can help yourself to snacks and drinks at any time of day or night, and mingle with an assortment of cool clubbers, iPhone-toting businessmen and young families. The 51 rooms are simple and efficient without skimping on comfort (truly excellent power showers), and there’s a sauna and relaxation area to unwind. To top it off, the hotel’s location in the heart of Mitte, surrounded by some of the city’s best bars, restaurants, boutiques and galleries, is hard to beat.
