Behind an elegant brick façade in Berlin’s City West district (within easy reach of blockbuster sights and steps from the Kurfürstendamm shopping boulevard), the H10 combines sleek modern interiors and original design features from its previous incarnation as a 19th-century schoolhouse. The airy lobby has an opaque glass ceiling and is decorated with custom-designed chrome and leather furniture and an eye-catching metal sculpture of a diver in midleap. The historic wing preserves traditional high ceilings and large windows, and everything works like a well-oiled machine at this warm and welcoming city crash pad.
Bed and Bath
The streamlined look of the public areas continues in the light-drenched guestrooms, which pack plenty of style and amenities into a fairly compact space. All offer free WiFi, wall-mounted LED TVs and AC, and rooms in the Privilege category feature such perks as a Nespresso coffeemaker, a pillow menu and access to a private lounge for free snacks and beverages. The fluffy robes and slippers come in handy for trips down to the spa. The sparkling bathrooms feature rain showers, plenty of counter space and a full complement of H10-branded amenities. The 199 rooms are split between the historical wing and a modern annex.
The lobby feels like an oversize living room where guests can pick up a tome in the reading lounge, surf the web in the business corner, or lounge on a Bedouin-inspired armchair in the bar. Off to one side, the Salt + Pepper restaurant serves modern international favorites; it doubles as a breakfast lounge until 11 a.m. After a full day of sightseeing, kick back with tapas and cocktails on the quiet garden terrace, or hit the petite but stylish spa for a sauna, steam or massage.
In the Area
Situated in the City West district, the H10 is mere steps from the Kurfürstendamm, Berlin’s top shopping boulevard, a two-mile cosmopolitan cocktail of designer labels, hip boutiques and the century-old department store KaDeWe, with its must-see food hall. Have lunch here or take a shopping break in the enchanting garden of the Café im Literaturhaus. Nearby, the Story of Berlin multimedia museum delivers an edutaining introduction to the city’s turbulent history, including a tour of a Cold War atomic bomb shelter. Younger travelers will be enthralled by the critters at the Berlin Zoo, which is part of the vast Tiergarten, which has rambling paths, idyllic ponds and fun beer gardens including the Café am Neuen See.
How to Get There
Stayed for 6 days in Berlin with a 6 year old, this hotel made our stay perfect!
The hotel pays attention to every little detail, room has a huge bad, verry nice coffee and tea tray, bathroom verry clean, they put in the room everything we might need.
Stuff was nice, they new how to direct us, always with a smile.
Breakfast was diverse, fresh food everyday, grate coffee, my 6 years old got colors and drawing book.
The location is amasing! A minut walk from the broken church, verry close to zoo station and there is a U station right at the hotel exit.
We had fun! Thanx!!!
When planning our trip to Berlin, we looked for a hotel from the H10 group as we had prior experience of one of their Tenerife hotels.
The H10 Berlin Ku'damm is located a few minutes walk from the KaDeWe department store and there are several U-Bahn & S-Bahn stations nearby which meant getting about the city was easy.
There was plenty choice at breakfast time with a mixture of breads/cereals/fruit and hot food - sometimes the hot food could have done with being a little hotter, especially if it had been sitting out for too long.
All the reception staff we dealt with were friendly & efficient and were happy to store our luggage both before checking in, and also after checking out,
The bed was comfortable with a memory-foam topper on the mattress, and our roomed looked out over a parking area but the room was very quiet. The bathroom was well presented and spotlessly clean.
We'd definitely think about returning to the H10 Ku'damm the next time we're in Berlin.
Stayed here at the end of October 18 for 4 nights. Pretty good location for public transport to the rest of Berlin ( you can’t walk, it’s way to big a city)
A pleasant and clean hotel and room we had was cosy( great pillows) and very quiet. Did not have dinner but breakfasts were varied and plentiful. We paid a small premium to access the privilege lounge and it was well worth it. Sauna good but steam room not so. Staff were always helpful and friendly and all spoke excellent English even though we tried our best at German. Artwork in the hotel was cool. Loved the city and would definitely recommend this hotel.
Wish to share with you a great experience we have had yesterday evening with the local barman named Aharon. He was extremely friendly, smiley and gave us the feeling as if we were the most important people to him at the moment of beverage selection. It says all!!!
Very good location near U bahn in the shopping district, excellent breakfast one of the best we ever had , Staff was helpful and always available . The room was quiet and comfortable, it could have been a little cleaner
