Berlin has a prominent culture of openness and experimentation and many international designers, writers, architects and artists were drawn here year ago by cheap rents and a promise of an exciting new era. Today the city is edgy, trendy and hedonistic and many of the Berlin’s hotels reflect this new cool vibe – we’re all huge Berlin fans here! Some of the most unique hotels in the world can be found in the German capital and to help you get started with your search, here is our collective round up – in no particular order – for the coolest, most hip, quirky and downright unusual hotels in Berlin (in no particular order)…

Born in England, with a few family roots from Bavaria, and a heart in Scandinavia I've always been a bit of a restless soul. My first true adventure began as a six month voyage around South East Asia as a fresh faced backpacker and ever since I've lived a semi nomadic existence, clocking up over 40 countries on trips and living in Dublin, South East Asia and Australia. I'm a lover of US Road Trips, deserted beaches bathed in warm glow of a sunset, Cuban mojitos, easy-on-the-eye travel destinations far away from the tourist crowds and all things Scandinavian - from cloudberry liquors to Scandi Noirs. When not wandering the world, you'll find me walking my rescue dog in leafy South West London, strolling around the Brighton Laines on random day trips, hunting for photogenic landscapes or daydreaming about returning to my all time favourite places in the world; Havana, Copenhagen, Italy, Thailand and the frozen landscapes of a wintry Iceland.

    I live in Berlin, but before I moved here I stayed in Ostel. It has great decor and an interesting feel, plus budget prices. For a more central option, I’d go for Motel One from your list above. Sure, it’s not quite as interesting as some of the others, but it’s very central and you could walk to most places of interest, no problem.

    Are those caskets I am seeing at the Propeller Island City Lodge Hotel? If so, are guests able to stay in them? That is crazy, but so absurd that I would really love having an opportunity to stay there. I find strange things to be really interesting, and to have the opportunity to go to Germany; then stay in a casket, would just make for a really interesting story and vacation altogether. Very cool stuff here!
