OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

The hotel is in Prenzlauer Berg on the south side of Oderberger Strasse between Kastanienallee and Schönhauser Allee. Eberswalder Strasse U-Bahn station is a short walk north. Don't miss the Gedenkstätte Berliner Mauer memorial trail and the free-entry Museum in der Kulturbrauerei, devoted to life in the German Democratic Republic.

By plane: direct flights to Berlin Brandenburg from London (1 hour 40 minutes), Manchester (1 hour 55 minutes) and Edinburgh (2 hours 5 minutes). It's a 50-minute drive to the hotel. Book flights to Berlin.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

It took four years to convert the baths into an outstanding luxury hotel full of character. Memories of the building's former use linger on in upcycled coat racks made from pipes and white-tiled meeting rooms with original features such as soap dishes. Work by Berlin artists includes powerful travel photography and performance video shot at the pool.

THE FACILITIES

The 20m swimming pool and sauna are open to non-residents for a fee (hotel guests get a reduced rate). This can be drained in 20 minutes to make a spectacular event space so is not always available. Guests are given prior warning of this, or you can contact the hotel for closure dates before making a reservation.
