An old gem is polished. The HOTEL ZOO BERLIN, jewel of Berlin’s Kurfuerstendamm from the 1920s to 1950s, is shining brightly again. Designer Dayna Lee (Powerstrip Studios, N.Y. and L.A.) reinvented the HOTEL ZOO BERLIN without neglecting its historic character. With great passion for details she created a unique townhouse, which combines a mix of New York flair and London elegance. Dayna Lee embraced the building’s history in her design. Constructed in 1891 as a private residence for an affluent family it was converted into an upscale hotel in 1911. Home to many celebrities of the time, it became the VIP-Hotel for the Berlin International Film Festival in the 1950s. All of the 144 rooms and suites in the HOTEL ZOO BERLIN are unique. The original floor plan - more than 100 years old - combined with the newly constructed levels in the side wing and rear building add up to an extraordinary architectural mix, also reflected in the many different layouts of every single room category. Some feature open plan bathrooms, others boast free-standing bathtubs. Amenities include custom made walnut closets, plush mother-of-pearl colored headboards and large armchairs resting on dark wooden floors. The panorama rooms allow views of the Kurfuerstendamm or across the rooftops of Berlin, towards Theater des Westens. GRACE Bar revives the glamour of Berlin’s Golden Twenties in the same hotel where film stars like Marlene Dietrich sipped champagne and danced the Charleston a century ago. Tucked behind the living room of Berlin’s famous Hotel Zoo, GRACE Bar achieves a perfect balance between the hip and the historic. The NYC and LA-based designer Dayna Lee combined details like exposed brick walls, green leather armchairs, violet wall panels, an amethyst bar top, and a mirrored backboard to create the feeling of an old Hollywood film set. The bartenders at GRACE Bar also take inspiration from the building’s history as a popular hangout for international film stars in the 1920s and 1950s. The cocktail menu includes both timeless classics, like the Sazerac, and the bartenders’ seasonal inventions with exotic ingredients like galangal honey, pandan syrup, and roasted banana-infused shochu. On weekend evenings, local DJs play into the early morning hours. Guests can always cool off or smoke a cigarette in the winter garden, a courtyard with a five-meter long fireplace and tall windows that make it easy to keep an eye on the action inside at the bar. GRACE, what lies behind this alluring name is the new glamorous restaurant in Berlin’s city west that advanced to an in-spot for casual fine dining shortly after its opening in early 2015. The cosmopolitan charisma of the interior design paired with the enchanting menu result in an exceptional culinary experience. The young and fierce kitchen team soaks up the nonchalant lifestyle from the restaurant and conveys it onto the menu. Heading towards a new, unchartered culinary territory, the chefs create exclusive dishes, not to be found anywhere else. The cuisine paired with the ambience of the restaurant, leave you breathless. Every dish can be served as a party friendly small plate, making the dining experience a social event. The service staff completes this concept, ensuring the guest an unforgettable evening. Creamy Rock Shrimps, Beef Summer Roll, Asia burrata, there is such a wide array of tasty delights on the starter menu, it is best to load up on them all, staying true to the small plate principle of sharing and enjoying. Mains include the Miso Black Cod and the Maine Lobster with yuzu or, for the beef lovers, the Filet Chinois with pak choi and cocoa bean and the Rib Eye Steak with green asparagus and lavender. Vegetarian dishes like the Braised Eggplant and Jaipur Artichoke are worth ordering anytime. The dessert menu is studded with delicious delights including the New York Cheesecake and the Pecan Chocolate Cake. The wine menu provides a wide selection to perfect the evening. If the weather permits, the dinner can be enjoyed on the lush green terrace of the restaurant. One of the city’s most spectacular rooftop terraces, the cherry on top of the HOTEL ZOO BERLIN. This oasis of peace is another stroke of genius from American interior designer. Dayna Lee, signing the entire premise with her urban townhouse style. The new rooftop terrace is a stunning space, completing the hotel’s portfolio of glamorous venues. The rooftop provides a bar and a lounge area accommodating up to 100 guests. The view from the terrace boast a stunning 270-degree panorama of the Berlin cityscape with the southwest exposure allowing spectacular sunsets views. An open fireplace and a waterfall dancing under a vegetated rim complete the settings, creating a parallel niverse away from the buzz of the city. Guests can relax on beautiful teakwood loungers and enjoy a drink while facing the breathtaking sight. BBQs are organized upon request to enjoy a great dinner on top of Berlin. On special events, the terrace hosts top-notch DJs enhancing the atmosphere with relaxing clubhouse tunes.

What a classy place! Beautiful rooms, excellent design, terrific vibe. Located right near the U-Bahn, S-Bahn, and DB trains, making getting there as well as getting around the city a breeze. Nice bar, chic restaurant. Would stay there again if and when we get back to Berlin.

This hotel is situated perfect for a trip to Berlin. Placed in the highend street you will find many 'suits' checking in here. The rooms are nice and clean and you can get them to many different prices. The service is good and helpfull. You can find Parking near by to 15 EU pr day. Which might be necessary since ZOO's parking lot is small. Breakfast is okay with a small variety, remember to read the menu. Since you can get free pancakes if you just ask ;)

Either you hate or love the hotel. In our case we reserved one of the better categories and despite having asked for a silent room along with our reservation we got a room with loud music from the roof bar from early evening. Consequently we were changing rooms twice (lack of rooms available in the same category). We were also charged for around 100 Euro for minibar beverages that we did not have (has now been told it will be credited). However we got a one night deduction of the parking fee :). Also the AC was not able to turn off in the second room we slept in, so a cold was awarded on our way home. And finally we also succeeded to get a nice young couple visiting our second room while we finally were on our way to bed - their keys were also working in the very same room! Having said that the staff at the hotel were all very nice and they did their outmost to solve the most important problems, 5 stars for that. However the description of the hotel on the website does not reflect the hotel in fact and we simply spend too much time and energy to get settled at the hotel. So if you like a chik trendy hotel in this way you will simply love the hotel. If not, you will hate the hotel no whether your stay is for pleasure or business.

This is a great hotel with friendly and knowledgeable staff. Stefanie and Dominic could not be more helpful and made every request and interaction effortless and pleasant. The hotel itself is high fashion furnished and decor but while sometime the lol results in uncomfortable furniture, not the case here. The rooms are good sized and very well appointed. We had a Panorama Room which I highly recommend with its floor to ceiling window. The hotel is well located. Right outside the door are great food options, music (Bikini Berlin) and shopping and walking distance to Berlin’s amazing Central Park. Safe and clean area. If you have kids, the zoo and aquarium are right there. We highly recommend you stay here. We’re going back in a few days for a second visit.

iT gives me great pleasure and pride to write a review for the wonderful, professional men and women in front of the scene and behind the scenes that ALWAYS make my stay at ZOO HOTEL-BERLIN, memorable, FUN and WARM. My family and I have been coming there for almost 4 years now and it's always like coming back HOME.... I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO GIVE CREDIT TO THE VAST DIVERSITY OF CULTURES that are employed at this wonderful establishment In my experience, as a traveler and developer, I have found that it is the PEOPLE who work in the HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY, that is the difference between a 3 star and 5 star. NOT the bricks and furniture... ZOO HOTEL-BERLIN has the equation for what it takes and what it means to stay at a 5 star hotel
