Das Stue is tucked into a lush corner of the Berlin’s embassy district, bordering the southern edge of Tiergarten Park and situated adjacent to Berlin’s Zoological Garden. Guests with rooms on the hotel’s zoo-side upper floors get an even more expansive view of the grounds; a unique experience in Berlin. Off the lounge is a trio of spaces meant to suit different dining experiences conceptualized by avant-garde Spanish chef Paco Pérez. Pérez holds five Michelin stars and received his fifth Michelin star for Cinco. Das Stue’s fine-dining restaurant, Cinco serves Mediterranean cuisine. In the adjacent area, an all-day dining area called The Casual, daylight streams into a triangular space from skylights above. A third space, also part of Cinco, is the most separate and formal, with views to the zoo’s ostrich area, and an ideal place for private dinners and special events. Accessible through a discreet hallway off the front lobby is a 260 m2 wellness area – a tranquil oasis with a lap pool and sauna, as well as three private treatment rooms offering products and treatments by Susanne Kaufmann.
Das Stue has 79 guest rooms and suites in six categories, ranging in size from 27 to 110 m2. They feature modern accents that differ from room to room, like bedside tables by Hay or a one-off furniture designs, like an inviting chaise longue. Tones are mostly muted for clarity and comfort, with occasional accents like hand-selected textiles, adding splashes of colour. Each room has a dark oak parquet floor and a rain shower; some have oversize bathtubs. Many of the rooms in the new building have panoramic views through floor-to-ceiling windows and 13 of the rooms have private balconies or terraces.
Rates start at EUR 190.
