What We Love

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
Great hotel/ reasonably priced. Has everything needed for a weekend stay. Friendly staff. Good sized rooms and bathrooms. The honesty bar is a nice addition. Breakfast is served by a very cheerful lady! Good choice of food.
The Best thing in this hotel is the location right on top of the blue line Weinmeisterstraße station, and a 5 minute walking distance from Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt.
the hotel itself is ideal for couples, offers a great breakfast which is served on the 7th floor with a lovely view as a bonus, the rooms are very comfortable especially the shower in the cold December weather.
A good word for the staff as well who were very helpful with all our needs!
מלון מצוין ומומלץ מאוד במיוחד בגלל המיקום המצוין , מציע ארוחת בוקר טובה וחדרים מעוצביםת נקיים עם כל האמצעים הנדרשים לסופ"ש זוגי
We stayed here for a long weekend at the end of November. A 10 minute walk from Alexanderplaz and easy to find. We booked a suite which was spacious and a welcome spot to relaxed in the hour or so between sightseeing and going out for supper. On the top floor there was a communal lounge always open for dining and an honesty bar for drinks. We tended just to have breakfast here and a drink before heading out for supper. With big beds and great showers the rooms have a minimalist feel - great for a long weekend. There is a Deezer rental bike station just outside - by far the most fun way to get around and experience Berlin.
If you want something different this is the spot. Casual and all you need place. 24/7 gym and lounge is definitely a plus, but the environment and people are what this place is about. Professional, yet relaxed. I would come back.
A super comfortable and minimalist hotel. Very friendly staff and the cafe/canteen on the top floor with free food all day tops off this excellent hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel for families.
