Where other than Berlin would you find a boutique hotel set in a converted 19th-century swimming pool? Trendy and elegant, the renovations to Hotel Oderberger over the last decade do not disguise its unusual and intriguing history.
Set in the smart Prenzlauer Berg district, this decidedly cool addition to Berlin’s boutique hotel scene offers something a little different, but comforable nonetheless.
In keeping with the hotel’s unusual setting, the Oderberger’s restaurant is not your average eatery. Situated in a refurbished power station, it spans for three floors, with high ceilings and a rustic atmosphere. Tuck into contemporary takes on traditional German fare, with ingredients sourced from local producers.
Breakfast is served daily and is included in most room rates (see detail below). In the evenings you can sip on a glass of wine in the hotel’s cosy bar.
The minimalist rooms are decked out with smooth wooden floors and sleek white-tiled walls, resulting in a sleek and elegant set up. Bathrooms are stylish and modern, complete with rainfall showers and luxe smellies. Whilst rooms are reasonably spacious, most of the Premium options are set on the higher floors offering lovely views of the Oderbergerstraße.
Dip your toes into the hotel’s historic swimming pool, which is available to guests and the public for a small charge. It is worth noting that it is sometimes closed for private events. Alternatively head to the spa, where you can treat yourself to a bit of pampering in the Finnish sauna, cool down by the ice fountain or relax with an invigorating massage.
Outside of the hotel, there is much to see and do. Located in the Prenzlauer Berg district, you’re spoilt for choice on great eateries, boutiques and galleries. Make sure to leave some space in your suitcase ‒ the Sunday flea market is a great place for bagging some souvenirs to take home.
