Berlin offers a full range of choices when it comes to temporary accommodation and, compared to many other European capital cities, is a relatively affordable city.
Just about every international chain has a property within Berlin, with the greatest concentration in Western Berlin. In recent years, however, Eastern Berlin has experienced significant growth in the number of boutique hotels available. With custom-made furniture, lavish original works of art or entire hotels designed by artists, there is plenty of choice for the design-savvy.
An increasingly popular alternative is furnished apartments. Available either privately or through an agent, furnished apartments offer a more spacious and affordable alternative.
If you are seeking some of the old Berlin charm, then a B&B, also known as a Pension, is your best bet. Pensions are usually located in older residential buildings that have been updated to offer many modern comforts such as WiFi and cable TV.
Hostels in Berlin have really improved in terms of comfort and utilities. In addition to the traditional dorm style accommodation, many now offer private rooms with en-suite and of course a buffet style breakfast that’s not for the faint-hearted.
