Nature and culture form a fascinating alliance. This “new kid in town” has a fresh design concept that accommodates both. Half of the 149 rooms offers views of the apes and elephants of the zoological garden, while the other half offers views of some of West Berlin’s most iconic buildings. Respectively, the design is warm and welcoming in the zoo-view rooms, with extensive use of natural building materials and colors. In the city-view rooms, the design is urban and sparse, a nod to Berlin’s raw creativity. The hotel is an ideal base for embarking on your own safari through the urban jungle.
