Located on Lake Rummelsburg, a small bay in the river Spree, Modern Houseboat is the most unique Chic Retreat in Berlin. With the entire front of the houseboat facing the bay with views of Berlin, we challenge you to find a boutique hotel with more spectacular views or position. Lake Rummelsburg has the neighbouring districts of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg, Lichtenberg and Treptow and right next to the dock is a small natural reserve home to hundreds of ducks and swans.
As the name suggests the interiors of Modern Houseboat are minimal with views through the floor-to-ceiling windows covering the entire front of the boat. Most of the furniture, including the sofas and the beds, are bespoke. This water baby has around 60sqm of space and features a fully-fitted open kitchen, a large living area with a pull-out double bed and a sofa, a shower room, a separate loo and the main bedroom with a comfortable double bed overlooking the water.
Spreeboote, Modern Houseboat's neighbour offers tailor-made tours of Berlin in one of their elegant vintage boats definitely worth a trip during your stay. The centre of Berlin is about 15 minutes away from the Modern Houseboat by public transport with a tram station about 100m from the harbour. Modern Houseboat has a fireplace to keep the boat warm in winter and air-conditioning for hot summer nights. Two lovely Bella Ciao bikes are available for guests to use and just like this Chic Retreat, they are hand-crafted, timeless classics.
Nearby, within walking distance, there is a beautiful restaurant, Die Hafenküche, serving light lunches during the week and delicious breakfast on the weekend. They can also pack a picnic basket and take guests on a tour on one of their boats.
