Nestled among trendy bars, boutiques and galleries, Lux 11 is Berlin’s most fashionable design hotel, and that’s a title for which there is much competition.

With so many new hotels popping up, designers must do something pretty special to impress discerning guests, and husband and wife team Claudio Silvestrin and Giuliana Salmaso have certainly done that. Champions of minimalism, they have created suave, sensual spaces—largely white with splashes of bright pink—and the result has proved a big hit with the hip media crowd. The 72 apartments each have a kitchenette, DVD player, fax machine and iPod docking station, and many have a courtyard-facing balcony.




Why we love it: A two-bedroom suite with a large open plan kitchen, fireplace and living room furnished by celebrated designer Kati Meyer-Brühl. The suite also features a rooftop terrace facing the iconic TV Tower, with excellent views onto Alexanderplatz.
