I am always on the lookout for new boutique hotels in Berlin, one of my favorite cities in the world. So I am thrilled to see that one has just opened in my favourite neighborhood, Berlin Mitte. The hotel is called The Weinmeister and bills itself as a “high tech” boutique hotel. Instead of a TV in the room, you have an Apple iMac. This is a welcome change in the world of hotel rooms, especially since many people like me, hate TV. Apart from the presence of an iMac in place of a TV, the other welcome change in the way the Weinmeister has decorated its rooms is the absolute focus on the one thing that matters to you when you book a hotel room: the bed. The rest of the furniture is kept to an absolute minimum but the bed looks divine. The Weinmeister has a beauty spa for tired and frazzled travelers, as well as a bar and a restaurant. Rooms start at around 130 EUR per night.
The best feature of the Weinmeister is its location. The area is filled with good restaurants and bars, and small boutiques selling clothes and accessories from young, local designers. The Hackesche Höfe, a shopping arcade whose interior courtyard is teeming with small shops and cafes, draws a fashionable crowd at all times of the day.
