It doesn’t matter where you travel — if you stay in a sub-par hotel, you tend to have a sub-par experience. Uncomfortable beds, pests, lackluster food, and inexperienced service are some of the biggest offenders, but the list is always growing. However, Berlin is home to some of the top hotels in Germany. Below are our picks for the top 5 hotels in Berlin:

Most Luxurious

Hotel De Rome was once the historic headquarters of the Dresdner bank. Today, the bank manager’s office is a suite, the jewel vault is the indoor swimming pool, and the cashier’s hall is the grand ballroom. History is what sets this five-star property apart from the rest. Hotel De Rome is located in Bebelplatz, near the boutiques of Friedrichstrasse, Reichstag, Museum Island, Checkpoint Charlie, and the Jewish Museum. Guests can dine at the La Banca, the Mediterranean-inspired restaurant, or enjoy sublime cocktails and amazing views on the rooftop terrace.

Most Family Friendly

Traveling to Berlin with your family? Stay at top rated family hotels in Berlin like the Indigo (pictured above) and have the option to even bring Fido. Send your kids to complemetary children’s activities this provided while you take a day-trip to the spa or decompress with a workout at the gym. Snag a babysitter and  enjoy a romantic tour for two of Berlin, then visit nearby after-hours bars after a fancy dinner. The kids will dig the free Wi-Fi and you’ll dig the dry cleaning services to get baby’s spit-up off your favorite shirt.

Best Boutique Hotel

Depending on your pocketbook, you can stay in a very tiny room or a grand suite with all of your friends. You won’t be far from good food with homemade lunches that caters a weekly schnitzel. Did we mention discoing is included?
