The 8 Best Hotels in Berlin

3rd January 2007 // By Zahra Al-Kateb


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.


Savoy Henry Miller Suite

Why we love it: Suites are the Savoy’s forte, and the original marble columns and gold fittings make an instant impression. The Henry Miller Suite V named after its former occupant V offers a spacious bedroom with a living room, cozy sitting area, flat-screen TV, hi-fi system, telephones, a trouser press, a walk-in closet and a large safe. The marble bathrooms are equipped with a separate lavatory, separate shower and bath tub with Jacuzzi. All rooms provide highspeed DSL and Wireless LAN internet access.
