Remember the movie, We Bought a Zoo, where we all fell in love with Matt Damon’s character, who fell in love with Scarlett Johansen’s character and an unkept zoo saved everyone? Well, this hotel is like that in a way, but instead of falling in love with movie stars, we fall in love with the design and architecture based around the Berlin Zoo, the oldest and most visited zoo in Europe.
Meet Das Stue, the 80-room boutique hotel that has been open for but a few months and has bewitched guests and visitors to Berlin. Fusing together the artistic eye of Patricia Urquiola and the acclaimed taste buds of four-times Michelin starred Catalonian Chef Paco Pérez comes to life a modernly vintage hotel overlooking the Berlin Zoo.
Each guest room is a little different, some with high ceilings, interconnected doors to adjacent rooms, attached balconies or terraces, others with organically curved bathtubs and quite a few overlooking the wild ponies, ostriches and gazelles of the Berlin Zoo. Beyond the style, each room and suite is equipped with a rain shower, a spacious closet with a separate shoe storage, an interactive full-HD Apple entertainment system – including Internet access or extra large 55 ” wide-screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi and LAN, free Sky Premium TV, an electronic safe with outlet and individually adjustable air conditioning.
For dining, fill your senses with Cinco, the brainchild of chef Paco Pérez brings together ‘The Casual’ all day dining area high quality ingredients and conscious craftsmanship are used to create a no-frills Mediterranean cuisine while the fine dining awakens the emotions with avant-garde taste experiences.
For relaxation, because let’s face it, after a day discovering the history of Berlin and the wonders of Berlin Zoo, it will be nice to unwind to in a holistic beauty care practice as pure and impressive as the rooms themselves. All spa treatments use wholesome products, containing no chemical additives or colorants.
