Smack-dab in the middle of Mitte’s most vibrant, round-the-clock area, the Arcotel Velvet is modern, exciting, and inviting—and you can find some terrific deals on the website. The building’s glass façade and the floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall windows in the rooms create a sense of openness and light and, just as importantly, make you feel like you’re part of the exciting city just outside. The views over the rooftops of Berlin from the suites and junior suites on the upper floors are romantic and memorable. Throughout the hotel you’ll encounter original pieces of art created by artists who live in the area. Start you evening out in the hip Velvet Lounge, known for its excellent cocktails. Breakfast costs an addition 17€ but there are lots of cafes in the area where you can eat out for less.
