Soho House Berlin and Its 'Tiny' Rooms are Now Open
It looks like Soho House and its hotel rooms are on a major expansion kick. The Soho House West Hollywood opened earlier this year (but without hotel rooms) as did two new annexes in London--Dean Street Townhouse and Shoreditch--and Soho Beach House in Miami is expected to open in September.
But back on The Continent, it looks like Soho House has opened a new club and hotel Berlin as well. This photo shows a Damien Hirst shark "painting" in the hotel's lobby.
The good news is that rooms are quite affordable here starting at 100 Euros a night for non-members (members can get it for 75 Euros.) The bad news is that rooms are tiny and indeed that is the name of the starting room category, "Tiny." These rooms are also on the top of the hotel in the attic and boast a "dormitory feel." (Other room sizes are Small, Medium, Large and Extra-Large.) There's also only 40 guestrooms at the hotel so chances for availability are slimmer.
A tiny room.
On-site there are the expected Soho House spaces such as a library, screening room and a restaurant from Cecconi's (an outpost of the West Hollywood spot) which will open in the Fall.
There's also a Cowshed spa and fitness center as well as a private events space called Politiburo which is actually housed in the home of the country's Politisches Buro, the executive committee for several communist parties. Eeee.
But so far, what we're loving about Soho House Berlin is that most rooms comes with a traditional vintage record player and selection of custom vinyl LP’s. In the tiny rooms, we spied a vintage transistor radios and a rotary phone. If we knew how to say cool in German, we'd say it right here!
