Are you fascinated by Berlin’s historic past? Then our Motel One Berlin-Mitte, situated in the heart of the Kreuzberg district, is an excellent base for exploring the capital’s history-steeped sights. After all, the Berlin Wall once stood 100 metres from our affordable design hotel. Today, Checkpoint Charlie, the Rotes Rathaus (Red Town Hall), the Märkisches Museum and – essential for taking breaks while sightseeing – numerous delightful cafés and restaurants are all situated nearby. Karl-Marx-Allee, the Bode Museum and Potsdamer Platz are also relatively close. Thanks to our hotel’s prime location by Moritzplatz underground station, you can easily reach the Brandenburg Gate, Friedrichstrasse, the East Side Gallery and Alexanderplatz via public transport. Another very special highlight: the Prinzessinnengarten is right around the corner from the Motel One Berlin-Mitte, whose greenery is also reflected in our lounge. The 38 and 28 lamp series by Bocci, which feature real plants and a refreshingly organic colour scheme, add a botanic flair to the lighting above the bar. The bar itself maintains an industrial look thanks to its concrete aesthetic, and mirrored surfaces add a certain depth. As you can already see – our hotel is just as multifaceted as the city itself!
In the One Lounge, the modern work titled ‘The One’ by Berlin artist Freddy Reitz depicts the history of the division between East and West Berlin.
During your stay, you’ll have many opportunities to take a closer look at the piece in minute detail while basking in the pleasant ambience. Whether enjoying breakfast, an afternoon cappuccino or a gin and tonic at the bar in the evening: there’s a spot in our One Lounge reserved just for you. Take advantage of comfortable lounge furniture by Moroso and Diesel featuring eccentric patterns and prints.
We’ve also given your sleeping spot a similarly alternative vibe: in your room, you’ll be able to look up at Freddy Reitz’s art as soon as you wake up, as one of her pieces hangs right above your bed in perfect harmony with the concrete look of the wallpaper. Graffiti at the Motel One Berlin-Mitte doesn’t only grace the walls – you’ll find it on the floors, too! The carpet by designer Jan Kath in the breakfast area is an homage to Berlin’s enthusiasm for street art. Classics like the Arne Jacobson egg chair round off the design of the hotel, allowing you to quickly forget that you’re ‘just’ here for the night. As usual, you’ll also enjoy free WiFi and the service of friendly staff. Join us at our affordable hotel in the centre of Berlin and delve into the city’s moving history during your holiday or business trip.
