We stayed from March 25th-28th to celebrate my partner’s birthday. We were in the Penthouse which has two bedrooms, two baths, two sitting areas, a kitchen, dining room, wood burning fireplace, and patio. Fixtures and furnishings were high end- think Duravit deep soaking tub- very nice after a day of touring. If you book through the Lux-11 website site, you are offer a discounted rate to upgrade to the Penthouse if available at check-in. Go for it. The beds were extremely comfortable and enough space for two couples traveling together. Our friend had the Value Room (the lowest category room) to herself. I believe it was room 315. It was also very spacious, by European and New York standards. This room category is fine for a couple as well. This room was also very modern and luxurious with a nice view of the T.V. tower.
The hotel itself is in an excellent location. (Thanks to fellow Tripadvisor reviewers for this choice.) Excellent boutiques, restaurants, and galleries in the area. Late night/early morning, there’s a great snack stand around the corner that has tasty Turkish pizza. BTW, directly across the street, there’s a great boutique is for the “in the know.” It looks like a vacant retail space without any indication or signs that it’s open. If all white is a reception table in the middle and a vase with flowers. By the entrance, there’s a little plaque that reads “Apartment.” You ring the doorbell, get buzzed in, go down a spiral stair well and you’re in an edgy boutique. Think Rick Owens and the like. We only heard of Apartment through another retailer.
Back to Lux 11. Lobby was hip and chill-out kool. Front desk staff was always friendly, professional, and helpful. The décor was modern & edgy without seeming to be trying so hard. Really the vibe of Berlin’s Mitte neighborhood, in general, is a very relaxed low key kool. I also think it’s kool that the hotel was once apartments for KGB.
Overall, very comfortable, excellent location, and great staff. Nothing to fault. We will return.
