Berlin’s seminal grand hotel, the Savoy has a rich history that few of its rivals can match.
Greta Garbo, Henry Miller and Thomas Mann have all swept through her corridors, and the lavish 1940s style evokes a glamorous bygone era. Shoppers will love the nearby Kurfurstendamm, Berlin’s most famous shopping promenade, and many of the major sights are within easy reach. The wood-panelled, leather-clad bar is a gentleman’s dream, not least for its humidor-Xone of only 90 worldwide licensed to sell Cuban Havana Cigars. The Savoy has long been synonymous with charm and comfort, and the hotel remains a show business favorite to this day.
