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.
How to Get There
Very nice hotel, outstanding service, very very good breakfast. Very nice rooms, big bathroom area. Very central, super easy too reach. Subway station just outside the door. No complaints or negative points!
The all day drinks and refreshments were very useful. The location was great, easy to get out and about with many sights within walking distance and the underground just round the corner. The room was comfortable, clean and spacious. The staff were helpful and friendly. Recommended for a stay in Berlin.
We were based in Berlin for 10 days and it was challenging to find a suitable hotel that would create the "home away from home" feeling for such a long period of time.
Casa Camper was perfect in every aspect. It presented the ideal balance between business and leisure, with probably one of the best and most central locations in Berlin, offering easy and convenient access to transport links.
Wim and his team ensured that we were properly taken care of. He went out of his way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. With such a superb team under the leadership of Wim, one cannot go wrong! At all times highly professional, polite and extremely helpful. Thank you very much!
The rooms are large and well-appointed with a very comfortable bed and a suitable working area, which includes decent lighting and adequate power supply. The bathroom has a great shower with proper temperature control and water pressure. Despite the rooms facing onto the street, the noise insulation is of a high standard such that external noise never bothered us, and the views from our room were great.
One of the highlights is the on-site 24-hour dining café, which also serves an amazing and varied breakfast. The convenience of having this facility available must not be underestimated. It was great.
In my view the hotel offers great value for money and is definitely worth it. Highly recommended and certainly worth a stay.
Hotel is located around the Mitte; its close to a U Train, and is near to the Anne Frank Museum which is filled with graffiti and art. There are also a lot of shops like urban outfitters, and independent or local brands (there's also a film shop near the area if you're interested in starting film photography). The hotel also serves free breakfast and snack on the top floor lounge/dining area. The staff are kind and easy to talk to. Would recommend this place if its your first time in Berlin.
p.s. their potato chips during snack time is pretty good!!!
A very nice view upon breakfast, free snacks all day, great breakfast too. The rooms are spic and span and I love the hooks for all the things I needed to hang. Courteous staff and very efficient. Value for money!
