Design Hotels has expanded its portfolio of
hotels in Europe with the opening of The Weinmeister Berlin-Mitte.
Situated in the city’s central district, the 88-room Mitte, is
from the owners of Lux 11, Tom Tänzer and Elmo Hagendorf. “We wanted to create a hotel which reflects
the city of Berlin” said Tänzer. “The Weinmeister Berlin-Mitte
will mirror the excitement of Mitte’s street life, from the
24-hour clubs to the large gallery spaces. We wanted to capture
the essence of modern cool and what it means to enjoy the good
life – the hotel will exude style and elegance portrayed with both
restraint and opulence.”
The room décor
focuses on a single piece of furniture: the bed. With large
mattresses measuring two by two metres and oversized cloth-covered
frames, the beds take centre-stage. The effect created is a
floor-to-ceiling, room within a room, complemented by muted
colours and luxurious materials.
Every room features Apple iMacs
instead of television sets and there are also iPad laptops for
hire. These give guests access to social networks, music and games
and reflect the hotel’s synthesis of luxury and technology. To
create a cosy environment, rooms also come with a large Asprey
London cosmetics box, fluffy bathrobes and tailor-made pyjamas.
There are also handmade furnishings and quirky designs which use
organic materials, including bathroom shelves made from slabs of
natural oak wood and handcrafted lamps which seem alive through
their organic design.
