Lovers of luxury travel seek perfection, a bit of adventure and always a touch of uniqueness when they stay in a hotel. If you are one of them, let us inform you that Berlin has a perfect place for you – the Living room. That is the translation of Das Stue in Danish. Why Danish in Berlin? Well, because Das Stue now occupies the former Danish embassy. We must say that Das Stue has a lot of different European influences that all perfectly combine with style of Berline. You would say that Das Stue reflect the modern yet calming nature of the city.
Once you enter Das Stue, the interior will amaze you. It is the work of the renowned Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola, who created fantastic ambiance. You will feel like in your own home as you will be surrounded by the personal staff of the owner that he collected over the years. It is the amazing works of art like vintage fashion photography and portraiture and sculptures of animals that remind you of the excellent location of the hotel.
Location is another benefit of the hotel. It is located in the area that represent perfect balance of nature and city. It is in the embassy district, in the largest park of Berlin – Tiergarten, overlooking the Zoo. Some of the most famous cultural institutions like the Culture Forum, the Philharmonic and the New National Gallery are only minutes away, and for the shopping enthusiasts, both Kurfürstendamm, with the legendary KaDeWe, and Friedrichstraße are within easy reach.
There are about a dozen rooms at Das Stue that have private terraces overlooking the zoo and park. Guests staying in these rooms can sit outside as the staff grills barbecue right there on the spot. With the sun shining warm and a view of the giraffes and ostriches out and about, it almost feels like an urban safari lodge. An unmatchable experience for a place located in the city center!
The rooms at the Das Stue are exceptional. All furnishings of the rooms are bespoke; splashes of colour show up on textile accessories and photographs on the walls (selected by the owners); many of the rooms feature sliding walls for extra privacy or, conversely, a more expansive atmosphere. The hotel’s largest suite - Bel Etage Suite, with separate living and sleeping area covering a total size of 110m² with 5 metre high ceilings, is an ideal place to relax, regenerate and enjoy the unique atmosphere of Das Stue.
It's unsurprising that elegant restaurant Cinco earned a Michelin star within a year of opening – master chef Paco Pérez has already racked up four of the accolades. A Catalan by birth, this is Pérez’s first culinary outpost away from Spanish shores; seafood is plucked from the waters of Cap de Creus, near the chef’s Miramar restaurant. Expect to be treated to culinary fireworks: foie-ice powder and the ilk. For those times when foams and jus won’t do, there’s the more low-key Casual, which serves elegant Mediterranean comfort food and tapas.
We can say that Das Stue has it all. It’s surrounded by beautiful nature and animals in one of the busiest cities in the world. It represent tha calming ambiance of your own home with works of art that are fascinating. And of course the dinner under Berlin’s star is perfect.
