Berlin is the most fast-paced city in Germany, and it might be difficult to join its rhythm, especially when you’re travelling for business. Therefore, you’ll need to find the perfect spot where you can catch your breath and recharge your batteries a bit.
"Berlin combines the culture of New York, the traffic system of Tokyo, the nature of Seattle, and the historical treasures of, well, Berlin", — Hiroshi Montomura
WHERE TO STAY IN BERLIN?
So where should you stay in Berlin? If you’re heading to Berlin for business, pleasure, or shopping and looking for a perfect place to stay, then I’ve got you covered.
If you’ve been following me for a while, you probably know that I’m no longer living in Berlin. However, the most important fashion and lifestyle events are still happening here, so I must remain vigilant and stay on top of what’s going on.
During my trip to Berlin Fashion Week SS19, I decided to stay in one of my favourite chain of hotels — Motel one.
My choice was rather obvious, because I needed a place in the city centre, preferably in the most fashionable shopping street, yet affordable and elegant. So I’ve chosen Motel One Upper West.
Your Perfect Retreat
Motel One Upper West hotel is situated directly at Kurfürstendamm area, one of the most famous avenues in the heart of western Berlin. The hotel is opposite the iconic Kaiser-Wilhelm Memorial Church and just off the Ku'damm boulevard, surrounded by the finest boutiques like Chanel, PRADA, Yves Saint Laurent, etc.
The hotel offers excellent value for money in a fabulous location and has really iconic decor, inspired by Old Hollywood flair. Motel One Upper West has a unique pleasant character and personality and is different compared to the average hotels of this level.

The Motel One Berlin-Upper West also features a 24-hour reception as well as free WiFi in all areas. A rich buffet breakfast is available in the One Lounge each morning. The bar area is just fantastic — a perfect place to have a breakfast in the morning, a drink in the evening, or just a seat on the rooftop enjoying the view of the metropolis.
It doesn't matter if you're travelling alone or with your friends and family, there is always enough room for everyone (and the great view is included).
Across the street is the Bikini Berlin shopping centre, one of the famous malls in Berlin. Apart from that, there are a good variety of fine restaurants within the walking distance.
And the cherry on top of this all — KaDeWe, the most luxurious department store in Berlin, is just around the corner.
