I'll admit that it was the description of this hotel as 'eccentric' in a guide book that initially drew me to it. Each of its rooms are individually decorated by different artists ( and can be viewed on their website) - however, I don't believe it's allowed to request a particular room. I would recommend, however, asking for a room... More

The Arte Louise is a very special Hotel - the rooms have been designed by artists, each in a different style so there is always something to look at and study. The location is smack in the middle of where interesting people live, and very close to the Reichstag and government buildings, as well as the Brandenburg Gate, the Spree... More

Wonderfully, lovingly redecorated through a private initiative, this artists' home away from home is now a VERY conveniently located, low price hotel, and each room has been designed by an artist. What I liked: our Safari room, #104 - beautiful!, lobby, stairway, the whole building What I missed: an electric kettle in the room - this British/French habit is something... More

At a very central place in Berlin a brilliant Cult Hotel with good maintain rooms. The themed rooms are very well made. I loved the spy and train rooms both. Good reception and also nearby the central station.

This hotel was within easy walking distance of Hauptbahnhof station and quite easy to find. Having arrived before official check-in time, the staff were kind enough to offer a small locker for me to leave my bag in whilst I explored Berlin. I stayed in the Vincent Van Gough room which was such a delight! The artist who designed this... More

Older and quaint, the staff were very helpful and cordial. Interesting setting, within walking distance to several main attractions. No air conditioning (it was a mild summer so we were fine) and our windows opened up to the street. The noise was a factor at times. We acclimated to the sound of the street and the nearby train but one... More

The hotel is conveniently located near the government district, close to the Spree River and the main historical sites. It is also across the street from the bus stop for the airport bus which takes app. 30 minutes to Tegel. The building itself is a bit confusing, my room was very small (almost claustrophobic) and spartan, but clean, as are... More

We stayed in the Marilyn Monroe room, with art reflective of the late beauty, such as a movement-sensing neon light in the bathroom that read "Some Like It Hot" and a skirt that started billowing when the closet door was opened. The room was large, as well as the bathroom, which had both a tub and a shower. We saw... More

The good sides are cleanliness and the concierges' professionalism. Something needing further thinking is the fact that each room is an art installation of some kind (mine had a phosphorescent panel and UV lights). The bad side - at least for people like me who have a fitful sleep and need ear plugs even in standard hotels - is the... More

Small, inexpensive ('preiswert') arty hotel in a relatively quiet but central area of trendy Berlin Mitte, near Brandenburger Tor and Reichstag. Neat, modest and comfortable rooms, redecorated by more or less wellknown (mainly German) artists. My favorite: The allegorical Hopper-room (with a view) by Volker Maerz: "Tribute to Edward Hopper and Luise". Goin' back soon.

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
