Weinmeister Hotel Mitte – A Perfect Mixture of Class and Funk
The Weinmeister is one of the most popular hotels in the area, especially among the creatives – musicians, filmmakers, designers, artists. People who travel a lot and work in the music industry or film industry preferably stay at this hotel. It’s got basically everything you need, plus the oversize beds, plus the fine design, complemented by a touch of graffiti aesthetics in certain parts of the building, which occasionally breaks the minimalist spirit of the interior. Since the majority of people who stay here are either businesspeople, or people who have to stay in touch with their colleagues, they also have a boardroom, and pay much attention to technology. In addition to all of this – there is a beautiful terrace on the roof top, and it overlooks the entire city.

Three Little Pigs Hostel – A Cheap Stay
And here’s a nice little hostel for young people with a slightly lower budget. To be completely honest, it is not really inside the strict Mitte area, but it is very near, in Kreuzberg. Since it is a very sweet, unique and cheap place to stay, we’ve decided to put it on the list, regardless. The hostel is very near some of the main tourist sites and meeting points in Berlin – less than a kilometer away from Potsdamer Platz, and 600m away from the famous Checkpoint Charlie. The hostel occupies an old building (it was built in 1907), and exists since 2006. It offers many types of different rooms, so you should check them all out on their website. If you’re traveling in group with friends, and really don’t care about the luxury, this could be a perfect place for you.
Amstel House – Feels like Home
This is another affordable type of accommodation, and it seems to be one of the most interesting places of its kind in this area. Amstel House is classified as a hostel, but it is somehow more like a big, shared, happy family house (exactly like its name says). You can’t really expect much from the rooms in hostels, although this one seems to be very clean and colorful. But since the emphasis is not on the rooms, Amstel House compensates by hosting exciting events, DJ and Karaoke nights, parties, and lots of other fun happenings, which usually take place in their 24/7 open bar. The people who stay here seem to have no problem to fit into this lovely community, so it even makes you wonder how it all works, since the travelers constantly come and go.
