“unique hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Superb service, the owners are extremely welcoming and friendly. The hotel is situated right in the heart of Berlin, with many galleries and restaurants around the area. Beautiful mural illustrations add artistic value to the hotel. The place provided quiet, peaceful atmosphere that let us relax and get a good night's sleep.

Mid November I stayed in this really nice small boutique hotel, room 11, that is very reasonably priced. After I recommended it to friends, I got into a weird discussion and it turned out that some pages mix up names and locations with a former place.
The bottom line is, I really recommend this new place right down town Berlin, if you want something personal, clean, neat but artistic - instead of one of these big chain hotels. Its lovely, and gives a unique and special experience to the Berlin trip.

I moved from Berlin to Pittsburgh, PA around 10 years ago and my job brings me 2-4 times a year to Berlin. I really prefer the private atmosphere of family operated boutique hotels and I found my new space in Berlin in the Hommage a Magritte. They just opened that place. Centrally located, with perfect public transportation and in the heart of former West Berlin restaurants, shops coffee places, movie theaters and bars.

For reservations, I found their number under www.hommage-a-magritte.com and just called them for arrangements (from the US 011 - 49.30.89567087, follow up communication was via e mail info@hommage-a-magritte.com

After digging into reports of friends on bad critiques ... the confusion was related to a change of ownership and travelers found reviews that relate to the previous owner and a really different p[lace. The new owner, Aurelia and Roman, renovated from the scratch: new electric, new plumbing, new bathrooms, floors, furnitures, and so on. Tastefully reconstructing the end of 1800's stucko and wood trimmings, while adding new wall paintings and sculptures from an artist. When I was there, they just finished everything and it was a nice crew and atmosphere.

Room Tip: ask for the room with the extra winter garden terrace

We absolutely loved our stay here while we were in Berlin three weeks ago! The location is great, the hotel is located in an old
bourgeois building situated in a quiet side street of Kurfuerstendamm, two steps from well-known Keiser-Wilhelm Memorial
Church and Zoo Railway Station. We exchanged mails with the owner and made our reservation two weeks before our arrival,
so when we came, it was like visiting old friends. What a wonderful recovery from an impersonal world of atomically processed
online bookings!

It's evident that the owners put a lot of love and passion into every detail of this small and charming guest house. I never saw
an hotel like that, not in this moderate price category. Custom made furniture, surrealistic murals in every room, impressive
breakfast with organic food. It is not allowed to smoke in the rooms, but if you have to, you can ask for a room with a balcony.
The next time I certainly will!
