The best boutique hotels and apartments in Berlin

Arm aber sexy, Berlin’s former motto, perhaps no longer does the city justice. Berlin is ever-changing, making it pretty hard to generalise. However, the one thing we can say is that every district has its own, unique personality, from the urban landscape of Kreuzberg and Neukolln to the bougie corners of Charlottenburg and Prenzlauer Berg, making the city the perfect playground for adventure. 

Whether you’re visiting for the first time or taking a mini-break in your own city, there’s always something to discover. With this in mind, we’ve curated a list of our favourite boutique places to say, from hotels to apartments, giving you more headspace to plot your city adventure. Oh, and the best part, they’re all completely affordable.
