Highs & Lows

  • The location is incredible for a more sophisticated Berlin experience, perched between the Spanish embassy, the zoo, Tiergarten and just a minutes walk away from all of the high-end retail.

  • The staff at Das Stue are what make the place. Friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and unaffected. You can tell they’re genuinely proud to be working there… and so they should be.

  • The Public space design is spot on… really innovative and interesting without compromising function and comfort, adding to a great guest experience.

  • The room design is a little flat in comparison.
