Think Bauhaus, baby! This unique hotel takes its design cues from that 1920s German design school, which was famous for its streamlined chrome-and-leather furniture and form-equals-function aesthetic. And happily, it combines those now-classic forms with everything necessary for modern hotel comfort. Guest rooms and suites are unusually large and give guests a delicious sense of an earlier era, one that was just moving into modernism. Bathrooms have finely crafted wood and granite finishes. Centrally located in western Berlin, the tony Brandenburger Hof is close to the Ku’Damm and the Tiergarten. For an additional 36€ you can enjoy a sumptuous champagne breakfast buffet in the glass-walled conservatory built around a Japanese garden.
