For travelers visiting the beautiful land of Germany, it would be best that you book hotels beforehand because you never know when there are available slots left. After all, Germany is a country worth taking the time to look around.
Before you go and book a flight or a hotel room, it would probably be a good idea to explore the possible hotels that fits your budget. It is a nice feeling to lie down in a comfortable bed after a long day out but it would not seem so practical all the time to stay in a very expensive hotel when your main goal of travelling is explore that place. Getting cheap but equally nice and comfortable hotels are much better.
Here are some hotel options that offer just that.
The new Berlin Circus Hotel, just opposite of its little brother, the Circus Hostel, features guest rooms, suites, and even rental apartments at top rates. Located in eclectic “Mitte”, the wooden-floored rooms of this 3-star hotel are stylish and comfy. Guests also rave about the fantastic services, from bike, car and segway rental, to a babysitter service and free use of computers and iPods loaded with Berlin music. The Circus staff goes out of its way to make you feel at home in Berlin. Rooms start at 68 Euros.
For anyone who is looking for a chance to save money but still travel in style, Motel One is the right choice for you. The rooms of this 2-star “Boutique Motel” are small, but well designed and very functional. They captivate through their modern style; cream, chocolate and turquoise colors complement brick, wood, and leather. You’ll find Motel One in eight different locations throughout Berlin. Rooms start at 49 Euros.
The Michelberger Hotel is one of the hippest boutique hotels in Berlin, founded by a group of friends back in 2009. It pays tribute to the creative and rebellious spirit of Germany’s capital. Its loft-like rooms are uniquely designed and feature wallpapers made of old books, glass-walled bathrooms, flat-screen TVs running loops of cult movies, and handmade wooden furniture. DJs spin records in the lobby, there is a nice beer garden in the hotel’s courtyard, and the train station is right across the street, which makes the Michelberger a perfect starting point for your Berlin adventures. Rooms start at 59 Euros.
Another great choice for design-lover travelers is the chic Hotel Otto, close to the shopping boulevard Kurfürstendamm in the West of the city. Voted best design hotel in Berlin, one of the highlights of Hotel Otto is its minimalist breakfast lounge on the 7th floor. The organic breakfast buffet stays open until noon, and the views of Berlin’s cityscape are breathtaking. There is also a rooftop terrace where you can enjoy homemade cakes with German coffee and tea on the house. Room starts at 90 Euros.
Arte Luise Kunst Hotel
The Arte Luise Kunst Hotel, in walking distance to the Brandenburg Gate, calls itself a “gallery where you can spend the night”. Set in a beautiful neo-classical building from 1825, which used to be an artist co-op, the hotel stays true to its history; renowned international artists decorated the 50 guest rooms, and the lobby, stairways, and restaurant are also filled with interesting sculptures and paintings.
Rooms start at 79 Euros.
Always remember that before you pick out a hotel, make sure that you have a little extra cash left for your budget for emergency purposes. We wouldn’t want you to have problems.
