Fodor's Expert Review Hotel am Steinplatz

Am Steinplatz 4, Berlin, Berlin, 10623, Germany See on Map

Set in a grand turn-of-the-century Art Nouveau building, this historic hotel, which hosted A-list guests including Alain Delon and Brigitte Bardot, was thoroughly renovated and reopened in late 2013 as part of the Marriott group’s Autograph Collection. The luxurious boutique property features rooms with high ceilings and a minimalist design, along with all the services of a five-star hotel such as free Wi-Fi, a well-stocked minibar and plush robes and slippers. Not to be missed are the top-floor gym and spa, complete with two saunas and a terrace.

room

Rooms are outfitted in hushed, neutral shades of gray, taupe and ivory, and punctuated with Art Deco-style lamps and contemporary furnishings. The two spa suites (one of which has its own sauna) offer in-room treatments. All rooms feature Illy coffee makers; the larger suites have Apple TVs.

bathroom

The glossy jet-black bathrooms are equipped with rain showers, heated floors, lighted magnifying mirrors and toiletries by ETRO. Both the junior and larger suites have bathtubs.

lobby

The inviting reception area abuts a living-room-like area with a double-sided marble-encased fireplace, white leather seating and wall-sized black-and-white vintage photographs.

dining

At Restaurant Am Steinplatz, chef Nicholas Hahn offers a cosmopolitan menu that blends seasonal German and international flavors. A la carte and four- and five-course tasting menus are available.

The restaurant offers a less-expensive “Casual Dinner” menu on Sunday and Monday nights.

drinking

Awarded Hotel Bar of the Year for 2017, Bar am Steinplatz is a sophisticated spot for ultra-creative, globally inspired cocktails. Look for surprising ingredients like saffron, coriander and local sour beer on the illustrated drinks list.

Be sure to try the house craft beers, August Pils and Endell Ale, made exclusively for the bar by Berlin brew-master Thorsten Schoppe.

LOCATION

Getting Around

Set in the posh residential area of Charlottenburg, the hotel is near the upscale retail boulevard Kurfürstendamm; the U- and S-Bahn Zoologischer Garten are right around the corner.

Restaurants

The always-popular Dicke Wirtin (4-minute walk) has been a Berlin institution for decades, serving homemade traditional German cuisine in a cozy atmosphere. Tuck into authentic, expertly prepared French cuisine at the white-tablecloth Restaurant Belmondo (3-minute walk). And mere steps from the hotel, the swanky Glass (1-minute walk) is noted for its creative five- to nine-course set menus.

Bars

Along the leafy Savignyplatz, the hip Hefner Bar (5-minute walk) boasts an extensive cocktail menu and a lovely terrace in the warmer months. Decorated with rather good approximations of its namesake artist’s work, Van Gogh (8-minute walk) is perfect for those who dig a bit of live piano music with their cocktails. The stylish, intimate Bar Zentral (8-minute walk) features a long, narrow wood bar with just 20 stools, perfect for cozying up with a stellar mixed drink.

WHY WE LIKE IT

This historic Art Nouveau building has been masterfully reimagined as a modern hotel, while still retaining many original touches, including graceful Moorish arches and floral embellishments that give the property plenty of personality. Spacious, high-ceilinged rooms and lovely 1920s-inspired design details make the stay particularly inviting. And its setting on the leafy, tranquil Steinplatz offers a peaceful respite from the bustling city.
