Located on a quiet residential street in the Friedenau district of the city, this hotel is a great option if you're looking for a reasonable price with some extras. The decor is based on artist Paul Klee, as the name suggests, with a bright palette and modular furniture. There’s a wellness center with sauna, steam baths, hydro-massage cubicles and massage rooms.
The colorful rooms have large wardrobes, adjustable air conditioning and a minibar. Consider upgrading to a spacious superior room, many of which have fantastic balconies.
Updated bathrooms have large, walk-in showers and hairdryers.
The dual-level lobby is modern but spare, with leather seating in bright primary colors.
The small on-site restaurant offers a breakfast buffet but is not a full-service restaurant.
There is a small bar in the hotel restaurant.
The busy shopping street, Schlosstraße, is within walking distance. A five-minute stroll from the hotel is Bundesplatz station, with S- and U-Bahn service that can whisk you to the Berlin Zoo/Tiergarten in less than 10 minutes.
Pino Restaurant (7-minute walk) serves refined Italian cuisine; its leafy garden terrace is a lovely dining spot during the summer months. The Greek restaurant Medusa (5-minute walk), located on Perelsplatz, features gorgeous art deco and art nouveau tilework original to the 1892 building.
A former punk club that attracted the likes of David Bowie and Iggy Pop, the cozy, low-lit Offen Bar (9-minute walk) is now far more sedate, with a wide selection of cocktails and a small beer menu. Coffee, a good selection of wines by the glass and a small but well-curated cocktail menu define Amarcord (8-minute walk), which also hosts live music.
WHY WE LIKE IT
Set on pretty, quiet street in a beautiful residential district of Berlin, the hotel may not be within walking distance of the major sites, but it is near transportation that can get you to the city center in no time. Its large rooms and amenities, including a gym and spa, are a good deal for the price.
