The Ritz-Carlton

The Ritz-Carlton, Berlin, features mahogany furniture, plush bedding and massive marble bathrooms like the one seen here. Guests have access to a large spa, indoor pool, sauna and fitness center. The upscale French brasserie, tea lounge, and British gentlemen’s club-inspired bar are the icing on the oh-so-delicious cake. This is definitely the frontrunner for those guests seeking a luxe experience in the German capital.

Hotel Sir F.K. Savigny

The ultra-modern black and white motif throughout the Sir F. K. Savigny Hotel Berlin is located in the city’s Charlottenburg neighborhood -- full of intimate restaurants and elegant shops. It’s a short walk from Ku’Damm, an area lined with upscale boutiques and designer stores. The 45 rooms are bright and modern. The outdoor garden is a major plus, but the bathrooms do lack complete privacy and food is sometimes expensive.

Hotel Savoy Berlin

The historic Hotel Savoy Berlin opened its doors in 1929. Large, traditional rooms with simple bathrooms feature free Wi-Fi, coffee machines and flat-screen TVs. The elegant Charlottenburg neighborhood is home to several upscale businesses -- as well as great restaurants and shops. Plus the hotel’s on-site cigar lounge (pictured), small fitness center with sauna, reliable restaurants and rooftop terrace are all great locales to merge and acquire as you see fit.

Estrel Berlin

For the business traveler with larger plans in mind, Estrel Berlin is the city’s best option. With a 15,000 square meter convention center with multiple stages, this behemoth hotel can accommodate any business trip. The Estrel has 1,125 rooms and suites, 5 restaurants, 2 bars, a summer garden and a concert venue with performances happening almost every night. The complex’s rooms are simple and modern, with solid amenities.

Abba Berlin Hotel

For couples seeking some peace and quiet, the Abba Berlin Hotel is a tranquil retreat located near stylish Ku’Damm. Rooms are plush and neutral, with whimsical design touches like the crystal chandelier seen here. The hotel’s chic restaurant and lounge are great spots to relax after a long day of sightseeing. The wellness center -- featuring an indoor hot tub, sauna, and fitness center -- is a great addition that couples are sure to enjoy.

Hotel Art Nouveau

This charming, family-run B&B in Charlottenburg features 22 individually decorated rooms in a historic apartment building, complete with an antique cage elevator. Rooms at the Hotel Art Nouveau have stucco ceilings, wooden floors and a great mix of antiques and contemporary decor. The star of your stay, however, is the food. An organic breakfast buffet is served daily in the sunny breakfast room while an evening honesty bar is a great place to relax come nightfall.

Michelberger Hotel

A trendy, budget-friendly option popular with the hipster crowd, the Michelberger Hotel is set in a former warehouse in the Friedrichshain neighborhood. The hotel offers a variety of rooms that all exude an artsy vibe. It’s also known for its stylish lobby and bar with live DJs. Throw in a couple of odd extras -- a huge bird’s nest in the hotel’s garden, a foosball table off the lobby and funky accessories -- and any flannel-sporting traveler will be pleased. Visitors will enjoy the nearby East Side Gallery, Fairytale Fountain, and Karl-Marx-Allee.

Precise Casa Berlin

While at first glance this mid-range boutique doesn’t seem family-friendly, it actually comes with quite a few perks without sacrificing style. Deluxe rooms and apartments offer a huge amount of space, kitchenettes and soaking tubs -- which means plenty of room for the tykes to play and a haven for mom or dad after bedtime. Located in Charlottenburg, the Precise Casa Berlin is in a safe, elegant neighborhood full of shops and restaurants perfect for strolling with the family.

Hotel Berlin Ku'Damm

With rates sometimes falling as low as $60, the Grand City Hotel Berlin Ku’Damm is an excellent option for those traveling on a budget. Quiet rooms are stylish, with flat-screen TVs, playful modern design, and updated bathrooms. Unique touches, like the jazz-themed breakfast area and lobby fireplace, make the hotel stand out from the competition. Plus, the hotel’s location close to Berlin’s best shopping is ideal.

Bleibtreu Hotel

If hanging with the locals is your thing, then the Bleibtreu Hotel is one of your best options in Berlin. A boutique property that has managed to ingratiate itself with its neighborhood, Bleibtreu offers a charming bistro/diner and a flower shop with an outdoor garden that is often frequented by locals. Although small, the rooms are stylish, functional, and decorated with natural materials. Some have balconies. This hotel is a great pick if you’re looking to capture that true Berlin vibe.
