Tucked away down a quiet lane on the western edge of Berlin’s Tiergarten, this chic 78-room limestone hotel was formerly the Royal Danish Embassy. Interiors by Milan-based designer Patricia Urquiola feature a gallery-like décor with striking museum-quality contemporary art and photography. Handsomely designed rooms are divided between the original building and a modern annex, those in the former being preferable, since they have more period character and, usually, better views. Preferred Stue Suites come with herringbone parquet floors, seating areas appointed with Danish modern furniture and a freestanding tub, high ceilings and large windows. The property also encompasses Paco Pérez’s one-star restaurant for Mediterranean-inspired molecular cuisine, a trapezoidal bar, a delightful library and a small spa with a glass sauna, a gym and a lap pool. The Bauhaus-Archiv Museum nearby should not be missed.
