Design-forward sleep with a buzzy restaurant and gratis bikes for exploring Berlin’s edgy Mitte neighborhood
Much of the Casa Camper Berlin’s modish styling, both inside and out, is derived from the essential aesthetic of Camper itself. No detail seems superfluous. The eight-floor hotel is a design collaboration of Fernando Amat and architect Jordi Tio, a team that obsessed over the functionality of space. Colorblock fabrics, flooring and paints make ordinary furnishings such as lounge chairs and coat racks seem like pin-lit gallery showpieces. At this hotel simple, effective design trumps distracting flourishes.
Bed and Bath
Something about the Casa Camper’s guestrooms and suites makes guests want to inquire if they’re available to lease monthly. Room designs are simple, clean and practical; the brand’s signature red colors the walls, with long rows of hooks for hanging clothes, bags and the rooms' portable lamps, allowing guests to throw light wherever they need it. Bathrooms and built-in desks and storage units are situated at the back of the rooms, by the street-facing windows, creating a naturally well-lit space.
Perhaps the most forward-thinking aspect of the Casa Camper Berlin is the 24-hour free Tentempié snack lounge, which functions as something of a very posh minibar. Finger sandwiches, fresh fruit bowls, salads of every shade and a cache of juices, soft drinks and mineral waters are replenished throughout the day – and are entirely free! And the lounge itself, where all this gratuitous hospitality happens, is on the penthouse level of the Casa Camper, strewn with fat armchairs and super rooftop views of East Berlin.
In the Area
Mitte is to East Berlin what the East Village is to New York: a gritty, once rundown area that scrubbed up well and attracted more than its share of designer boutiques, coffeehouses and new, increasingly unaffordable luxury apartments. Call it a renaissance if you like, but as location goes, the Casa Camper is at the heart of most of Berlin’s most popular shopping, including Butterfly Soul Fire, Schwarzhogerzeil and Starstyling Shop; check out the latter for crazy modern attire and knitwear. When tired of shopping, pop into Restaurant Reinstoff for haute twists on traditional German fare (think local catfish with sweet-and-sour radishes) or Monsieur Vuong's short list of classic Vietnamese dishes in an uber-hip setting.
