In 1963, Schöneberg was the centre of the political west, inspiring John F. Kennedy to choose this area to famously announce, "Ich bin ein Berliner." Times may have changed, but modern-day Schöneberg still pays tribute to its historical legacies. Once the richest city outside of Berlin proper, the area's affluent past is still visible in ornate housing facades dating back to the Gründerzeit of the 19th century, while residents in fur coats walking their dogs or shopping in high-end KaDeWe continue the tradition with a modern flair. Schöneberg was also once the centre of the decadent and burlesque nightlife of the 1920s. It was here that Marlene Dietrich partied with Christopher Isherwood and the first gay bar in Germany was founded. Today, the gay community still revolves around Nollendorfplatz. The overground Ubahn station is even illuminated in rainbow colors, paying tribute to Schöneberg's progressive past.
We'd never have found this gem without a local guide. Easy to get to by Sbahn, green and tranquil but with several kinds of train, including ICE, zooming past at intervals, which seemed an appropriate contrast. A disused railway yard, taken over by a Green company, it's as if nature has been allowed to slowly reclaim the former industrial site....

"Excellent Cuban Restaurant "
reviewed 10 August 2017 by Rolando S
Pequeña Habana is a magic place where the Cuban culinary culture meets the refined European style. As a Cuban it is a pleasure to see how an small Cuban space is preserved and loved in center of Berlin. Thanks.
Excellent location with malls, restaurants and cafes all around. Less than 30 minutes from the airport.
Hotel is new and exceptionally clean. Breakfast spread is good and reasonably priced. Rooms are great.
Great hotel in a great area of Berlin. Friendly staff, and a clean room. Easy check in and out. The only thing that could have been better is the pillows on the bed, could have used more pillows. Otherwise, our stay was perfect. For the money, this hotel was just perfect. We are excited to have discovered a new neighborhood...
Great service. Nice people at the front-desk. Good breakfast and clean quiet rooms. I go there every 8 weeks and I love it! Very safe. You need your room-key to get into the elevator. If you have a real tight budget, then you can also stay at the Ibis-Budget.
"Lovely hotel, wouldn’t take much to be excellent "
reviewed 6 days ago by Michelle S
Visited this hotel for 5 nights with work. The room itself was very nice. Two single beds, typical European bedding. Plenty of plug sockets which is a 10/10! Excellent mirrors in the bathroom. The shower, looked great, but wasn’t very powerful - so a little disappointing. The room was meant to be in a quiet area but was rather noisy...
Short and to the point.
Near the subway.
Lots of restaurants and shops around the hotel.
Very nice service.
It is possible to stay after an hour of check-out at no extra charge.
Very clean rooms.
I absolutely recommend this place.
