The Hüttenpalast lets visitors fulfil their romanticised camping dreams in the comfort of the great indoors. Located in a former vacuum-cleaner factory floor in Neukölln, the overnight options of the unconventional hotel include a selection of carefully restored vintage caravans and cosy wooden huts. The interiors were designed in collaboration with young architects and artists, offering accommodation that is an adventure in itself.
This charming hotel is located on one of Berlin’s most notorious nightlife boulevards, the Warschauer Straße. The convenient location by the river Spree, only blocks away from electronic music mecca Berghain and the bustling Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg districts is outdone only by its original interior design and hospitality concept. The recently added self-contained suites or hideouts are just an example of the hotel’s broad array of accommodation that ranges from essential to luxurious.
