25hours Hotel Bikini Berlin
Best Fun Hotel
This is the Berlin branch of the Hamburg-based 25hours. The group has made a speciality out of creating playfully designed hotels with casual but friendly and efficient service. Positioned beside the zoo and the Bikini shopping mall with a view of Tiergarten, its location can't be beaten.
The hotel is well thought out. It's a style of hotel that's catching on around the world, similar to Ace Hotels, but with a little German quirkiness. Everything is on offer at 25hours; bar, cafe, restaurant, workspaces, lounging sofas, sauna with a view, and a host of extras like bicycle hire. It's amazing what a hotel can deliver when they start to really consider their guests' needs and wants. We could name a few larger hotel chains that could learn a few lessons from 25hours. We suggest paying the extra money to stay in a 'Jungle M' room - these come with an in-room hammock with views down onto the monkey enclosure of the zoo in the Tiergarten.
