We were pleasantly surprised to find Ackselhaus (and Blue Hotel, they are like pseudo- twins and both lovely) even more enchanting in real life ... Arriving on a sunblessed Autumn day with copper hued trees lining Bertolter Strasse was an extra bonus but as soon as we stepped inside the small and quirky reception with artwork collected by Ulf Ackselhaus...

My husband and I had the good fortune to spend eight nights at Ackselhaus in October. From the time of booking until the end of our stay we were so impressed with them. The booking was handled well. I had asked a couple of questions in the process of deciding which room to take and all were answered promptly and... More

I've been staying in a few hotels recently, and they all felt like just another hotel room in just another big city. This hotel is different. First, it is a smallish hotel - perhaps 20 rooms? Second, the room we stayed in was anything but 'yet another hot room'. We stayed in the New York room (all rooms have their... More

This was our travel agent's choice ... in the old eastern city. It's a restored 19thC building and nothing flash to look at from the outside but don't be fooled. There are two buildings owned by the same hotelier which offer two different types of accommodation, one boutique-style (Ackselhaus) and one more standard (Blue Home). All share a restaurant downstairs... More

Berlin is a pretty cool place these days and this hotel counts as among the coolest. It’s a gorgeous, non corporate hostelry and if you can get a booking do it! If you want to be pampered with scores of subservient, bored employees who smile like robots and vanish like smoke, then forget this place. It scores on its informality,... More

Ackselhaus is a very pleasant boutique hotel. Spacious apartment for a couple or one in my case. It consists of a large bedroom Queen bed, side tables, wardrobe, small table and two chairs a small equipped kitchen and well set out bathroom. It is absolutely clean. Pleasant and helpful staff and a great breakfast is included in the price. There... More

What a great place to stay in Berlin. The area, north of the city centre is lovely with plenty of good restaurants and bars. There is easy access to the centre via the many efficient methods of travel. We got a day pass for 7 euros and were on trams, train, underground and ferry! Like much of Berlin there are... More

We spent 6 nights at Ackselhaus and highly recommend it. The location is very central with a subway station 10 minutes walk away and a tram 1 minute away. The area is packed with restaurants and cafes but is still relatively quiet at night. The room we stayed in was excellent with a large bathroom,separate WC, a kitchenette/fridge and a... More

First it is a lovely old building and has been renovated very beautifully and artistically. Secondly, it is a wonderful location in Prenzlauer Berg - quiet and residential, and only two subway stops from Alexanderplatz or a nice 15- 20 minute walk to the centre.

This hotel is one of a kind. A real getaway in a big city. And so are the rooms. Each room has another theme. We stayed in the beach house, which actually gave us the feeling of spending time in a small cosy house instead of a hotel room. The garden and small terrace are also beautiful. We used the... More

Staying in Prenzlauer Berg

Neighbourhood Profile
Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighbourhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Great boutique hotel with 37 rooms located in the atmospheric district Prenzlauer Berg, bustling with cafes, bars and restaurants. Only a stone's throw away from Berlin's trendiest attractions. All studios, apartments, and suites are equipped with wooden parquet floors, high ceilings and antique period pieces which go hand in hand with modern furnishings. The variety of decoration takes in modern, classical, oriental and chic. Every room is also utterly unique - no two are the same. Two lovely Mediterranean gardens invite you to chill out. Enjoy a great breakfast buffet in our "oceanic" restaurant "Club del Mar". ... more   less
