Reinvented by designer Dayna Lee of NY and LA-based Powerstrip Studios, Hotel Zoo Berlin has regained its status from the 1920s to the 1950s as the jewel of Berlin’s Kurfürstendamm. Through thoughtful attention to detail and the preservation of original architectural elements, the building now boasts New York flair and London townhouse elegance, as well as its own classic character.
Each of the 145 spacious, high-ceilinged rooms and suites features its own unique layout and charm, with bespoke furniture designed by Dayna Lee. Select accommodations showcase open-plan bathrooms, exposed brick, curved walls, steps, and views of Kurfürstendamm Boulevard or Theater des Westens.
With its seven-metre-high ceiling crowned by a two-ton handcrafted moulding, oversized walnut wood doors and expansive industrial windows, the Living Room is the perfect place to relax. A five-metre-long open fireplace gives the room a warm atmosphere, while the exposed, 120 year-old brick walls bring the building’s past back to life.
Guests at Hotel Zoo Berlin can dine at Restaurant Grace or enjoy a refreshing drink at Grace Bar. The Lounge, the Winter Garden and the Rooftop are the ideal spots to unwind. A separate area with access to two balconies is available for receptions, coffee breaks and events, for which lunch can be arranged at Restaurant Grace.
Business travellers can take advantage of the 200-square-metre conference and event centre with floor-to-ceiling windows and views of the Neue Kranzler Eck shopping complex. The flexible space can be divided into separate rooms and is equipped with state-of-the-art technology.
Ideally located on the prestigious Kurfürstendamm (Ku’damm), Hotel Zoo Berlin is surrounded by luxury boutiques, premium automobile showrooms, galleries, bars and restaurants. In the 1920s, the boulevard – which dates back to the mid-sixteenth century – was a magnet for intellectuals and bohemians, who would frequent its many jazz bars, theatres and cabarets. Guests are in the perfect spot for exploring the historic and cultural attractions of City West, with Kaiser Wilhem Memorial Church, the restored Schaubühne am Lehniner Platz Theatre, and Emil Schaudt’s KaDeWe department store just a short walk away.
