This hotel occupies the 2nd & 3rd floors of a row house. Definitely unusual for a hotel, but it's a boutique establishment in a non-touristy area of Berlin that is associated with the gay community. It's a real neighborhood, which we preferred. The restaurants and shops have a very local neighborhood feel to them and there are many lovely buildings of residential flats all around this property. It's a one block walk to the Viktoria U-Bahn Station in one direction, and a few blocks walk to the Kurfürstendamm Shopping District in the opposite direction. The Ka-De-Wa department store (the largest in Europe) is located there, and more importantly, all the sightseeing buses stop there. We got a two day pass and picked up the bus there in the mornings and then hopped on & off all day long as got a very educational tour of Berlin.
We had Apt. 201 on the 2nd floor which was amazing! A kitchen, lovely bath, comfortable bed, big couch, a desk and lots of windows with views on 3 sides. We loved it! The hotel has an ancient lift and a lot of stairs, but that was not a problem for us. We scooted down the back steps to a lovely enclosed courtyard and out into the neighborhood. We loved everything about this place, including the very attentive staff and delicious breakfast every morning. We will definitely stay here again.

Located in Schoeneberg, this hotel is within a 15-minute walk of KaDeWe and Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church. Berlin Zoo and …More
Located south of the city center, Schoeneberg is home to the iconic KaDeWe department store, the largest in Europe. Quiet, affluent residential streets lead east to Nollendorfplatz, the epicenter of queer Berlin nightlife popularized by Christopher Isherwood in Cabaret, while the distinctive Rote Insel quarter retains the easygoing, bohemian charm of its most famous daughter, Marlene Dietrich.
