Casa Camper Berlin
What We Love
- Camper’s 24-hour Tentempié honesty bar, with its cache of well-known and obscure beers and liquors

- Parking On Site
- Room Service
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
I have staid at numerous hotels over the last few years including 5 starts but this one takes them all. The stuff is super friendly and extremely helpful, the hotel is quiet, clean, the rooms are great (no carpets,finally, yey!!) - everything was just perfect.
The Casa Camper was recommended to us and it did not disappoint. The room was nice and clean. Bed was comfortable with high quality linens. I loved the shower, water pressure was excellent and you had a choice of rain shower, a hand held with 3 settings and a bidet option ( only a giant could have used the bidet, i am 5’8” and it hit my navel😂😂).
The hotel offers a wonderful breakfast with long hours, very nice if you sleep in with jet lag. The lounge always stocks snacks and juice and mineral water - all complimentary. There is also a self serve honour bar with a good selection of beer, wine and spirits. Very handy if you just want a nightcap. Bar was reasonably priced.
Location is good, close to subway and easy walking distance to a street with lots if easy eats at reasonable prices.
I would stay here again
We stayed for 4 nights at this hotel. The hotel staff services and invites more at the booking stage, through the reception room and daily in the dining room and business floor.
Large room overlooking the Berlin landscape. A king-size bed is surprisingly comfortable.
The bathroom is very unique and offers a shower with a shower overlooking Berlin (half window).
The hotel offers a business floor, 7th floor, offering 24/7 refreshments - salads, pastries, sandwiches, fruit, snacks. Hot drink and soft drink in glass bottles.
At breakfast, a variety of vegetables, fresh salmon and eggs or finches are ordered directly from the kitchen upon request.
We had travelled from Brussels to Amsterdam and to Berlin over a ten-day European holiday in June. All of our hotels cost about the same but this hotel stood head and shoulders above the others. The room was huge with a three-part bathroom allowing two people to use it at once. Actually, three could! The room was extremely quiet even though our 4th floor view faced Weinmeister. The location was excellent - a short walk from the Hackeschemarkt and numerous convenient restaurants and metro stations. The front desk staff was extremely helpful. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful with so many choices. Having that same breakfast room available 24-7 was extraordinary. I may have had a fruity yogurt smoothie or six during our four nights. We had an early morning flight on our last day so the staff packed us a takeaway breakfast to eat at the airport. What a lovely experience! We already loved Berlin and planned to return because there were a few more sites we failed to see. But, one thing's for sure. We're staying at Casa Camper!!
The hotel is a contemporary hotel in the center of Berlin and close to the attraction sites and surrounded by nice restaurants, cafes, and shops.
The room is big and has a weird but nice design. As when you enter the room you'll find the bed and the seating area and in the very end is the sink, the shower,and the wardrobe by the window.
The cons of the room is that it is dark even in the morning and it needs more lights, table lamps, pr spot lights. In addition, I didn't like the idea of having a wardrobe without doors to be closed. And the third negative point in the room is the tv channels that do not include English however you can connect it wirelessly to your mobile phone and watch whatever you want.
The free inrernet is fantastic.
The staff are super kind.
The hotel doesn't have concierge service for taking your luggage up or so but the receptionists will try to help you.
The best thing that they had is the 24/7 supply of food, snacks, and drinks. The breakfast timing is just right from 7am to 12pm during weekends and from 7 to 11 during weekdays. Afterwards they will supply sandwiches, pastries, fruits, and many nice item including juices, water, and hot drinks for you to enjoy for free. They do have alcoholic drinks as well but those should be paid for.
I liked camper slippers and wished that we are able to take them with us.
It is one of kind hotel that I will be in again when in Berlin next time
