Fodor's Expert Review Lux Eleven

Rosa-Luxemburg-Str. 9–13, Berlin, Berlin, 10178, Germany See on Map

This designer apartment hotel in hip Mitte is coveted for its discreet service and great minimalist design. All apartments come with a fully equipped kitchenette, satellite TV and there's even a laundry room with washers and dryers. Rooms seem as if they were designed for a Miami Beach hotel, decorated either in off-white or subdued browns with pops of neon pink, acid green and bright blue. A restaurant and bar, stylish fashion store, and a coffee bar are also on the premises.

room

Sleek, minimalist décor in warm browns and soft grays, the spacious rooms all have kitchenettes with a microwave, fridge and dishwasher. Larger suites have a separate living area. Some rooms have balconies. The sprawling Penthouse Suite has its own sauna, gym and fireplace.

bathroom

Modern bathrooms have large rainforest showers and lighted makeup mirrors.

lobby

The industrial-chic reception area has a smattering of seats, but there’s no real common spaces.

dining

The adjacent concept store Type Hype has a small coffee bar, Milchbar, serving premium roasts, organic milk and sandwiches. Also next door, the lounge-like Prince restaurant serves creative Asian tapas, including a nice selection of curries.

YOU SHOULD KNOW A breakfast is served in the Prince restaurant or you can order room service from the Type Hype "milchbar."

drinking

The Prince bar in the adjacent Prince restaurant offers a nice selection of cocktails.

LOCATION

Getting Around

The hotel is an 8-minute walk from the transportation hub of Alexanderplatz, with S- and U-Bahn service as well as trams and busses.

Restaurants

Set in a former Jewish girls’ school, Pauly Saal (15-minute walk) is one of the city’s top dining spots, with excellent modern German cuisine served in a gorgeous art deco space. Wander through the courtyards of Heckmann Höfe and you’ll discover all kinds of nifty boutiques and smart restaurants, among them is Night Kitchen (17-minute walk), which turns out beautifully executed Mediterranean-tinged cuisine in a warm, rustic setting.

Bars

Tucked inside a former GDR skyscraper near Alexanderplatz, the 70s-style gem Beate Uwe (16-minute walk) spins retro and electronic music Friday to Sunday. The rustic Redwood Bar (20-minute walk) uses quirky ingredients like plum jam and violet schnapps to mix up tasty, unusual libations.

WHY WE LIKE IT

The stylish, open-plan rooms, friendly service and perks like a full laundry room make Lux 11 stand out among other hotels in the Mitte area. The courtyard-facing rooms have balconies and offer a quiet refuge in this bustling, centrally located neighborhood.
