Fodor's Expert Review Hüttenpalast

Hobrechtstr. 66, Berlin, Berlin, 12047, Germany See on Map

Set in a converted factory in the heart of up-and-coming Neukölln, these individually decorated wooden huts and vintage caravans offer a funky take on glamping (glam indoor camping). You'll get the feel of sleeping under the stars without worrying about bugs or Berlin's chilly weather. A charming community space provides a well-stocked library and a small morning breakfast. There’s also a beautiful garden terrace with flowers, foliage and seating.

room

Rooms vary completely, depending on whether you stay in a retro caravan, a Scandinavian-style cabin or in an indoor treehouse. There are also large hotel rooms, outfitted with minimalist black furnishings, should you seek a more traditional stay.

YOU SHOULD KNOW The accommodations are not soundproofed, and just as if you were camping, you will hear your neighbors.

bathroom

There’s a communal bathroom (separated by gender) with toilets and showers if you’re staying in the caravans and cabins; regular rooms have ensuite baths with showers.

lobby

A community space provides a well-stocked library and plenty of seats for lounging, and in warm weather, the garden area is the place to hang with fellow guests.

dining

There is a small morning breakfast of coffee and croissants is served in the open communal area.

LOCATION

Getting Around

Set in the edgy Neukölln neighborhood and close to a slew of cool bars, the hotel is a short walk to the U-Bahn station at Hermannplatz.

Restaurants

Slightly upscale for the neighborhood, Beuster Bar’s (10-minute walk) cool gastropub vibe and excellent schnitzel and moules frites means plenty of hungry crowds. Serving only desserts, and only as part of a multi-course dessert tasting menu, the slickly designed Coda (2-minute walk) is one of the more unique food experiences in the city; be sure to splurge for the perfectly paired cocktails.

Bars

A place to drink and dance to good music if you’re not into the club scene, Promenaden-Eck (25-minute walk) resembles a cozy living room with its comfy sofas and oriental rugs. Damensalon (4-minute walk), a petite bar set in a former ladies’ hair salon, has lots of antique tiling, recycled tables and chairs and a hip local clientele.

WHY WE LIKE IT

Definitely a unique hotel experience—though its shared bathrooms might not appeal to upscale travelers—the retro-themed artist-designed caravans and cabins accommodations let you “get back to nature” in the middle of a bustling city. We especially like the cozy “Little Sister” caravan, lined with wood mosaics and surrounded by birch trees and the kooky pop art-styled Nomad caravan.
