Berlin's Newest Hotel Balances 'Brutal Living' with iMacs and a Rooftop Pool
The Germans may only have won third place at the World Cup, but they take first in our book when it comes to the funkiest new design hotels. Andspeak of the devilthe Design Hotels chain has just opened up a new property right in Berlin-Mitte, a walk away from the very hip Hackescher Markt area.
Called the Weinmeister Berlin-Mitte, the new property (which debuted on July 6) calls its aesthetic "Brutal Living/Luxury Punk," and yet all 88 rooms look pretty cozy from the photographs we've seen.
Perhaps the "brutal" refers to the main facade of the building, which is a flat, gold modernistic one. The Weinmeister hopes it'll be called the "golden cage" as a result, but we think the locals will think of far better nicknames than that.
During these first few months, the Weinmeister is throwing down some special rates for stays. Try rooms from 129 Euro through the end of August, and that includes the Asprey toiletries in the bathrooms, an Apple iMac in your room and use of the hotel's private rooftop pool.
