In a former 1920s department store in Berlin’s Mitte district, Soho House is hipster hotel heaven. This private members club features a rooftop pool and terrace, retro-kitsch bars and a Cowshed spa, and if you bed down in one of the 85 industrial-chic rooms, you’ll have access to all that makes this hot property cool. The building’s Bauhaus pedigree is evident in carefully placed exposed concrete and industrial touches, but the hard edges are softened with tactile fabrics, country-style patterns and subdued lighting.
Bed and Bath
Vintage-style furniture sits side by side with genuine antiques (love those chandeliers!) to create an aura of timeless elegance complemented by such up-to-the-minute lifestyle essentials as giant flat-screen TVs with Sky+ and Jamboxes. Even the “Small” room category packs plenty of elbow room, with textured walls, individually dimmable lights and sumptuous kingsize beds for quality cocooning. The dreamy bathrooms dazzle with walk-in rain showers, heated floors, full-size Cowshed body products and a bevy of thoughtful amenities. Larger units have sensual steam showers and freestanding soaking tubs.
From the luxurious spa and hammam in the basement, to the state-of-the-art gym, all the way to the buzzy rooftop pool and bar, Soho House Berlin packs an entire resort’s worth of diversions into one compact package. At its heart is the buzzy Club Floor, where meister-mixologists whip up such signature concoctions as the Soho Mule under a sparkling chandelier. The bar segues smoothly into the House Kitchen restaurant, which churns out sophisticated comfort food, including much-adored pizzas. The Sunday brunch is called Feast, and it’s just that.
In the Area
Like an exclamation point, Soho House sits at the bottom of Torstrasse, Berlin’s creative-hipster mile. The strip crawls with fashion-forward boutiques including Happy Shop, clandestine bars such as Butcher’s and celeb restaurants like Mani and Dudu (a fave of Soho House regular George Clooney). Torstrasse segues into the Scheunenviertel, Berlin’s historic Jewish quarter, where more deluxe indie shopping awaits in a warren of charismatic lanes. A major sightseeing highlight around here is the Moorish-style New Synagogue. Twenties Berlin decadence, meanwhile, gets a revival at the enchanting Chamäleon Varieté theater.
How to Get There
Great hotel, great restaurants and bar, great location, great staff. 3 places to have breakfast, all excellent. Cecconi’s Italian restaurant for dinner - excellent, also a surprisingly delicious dinner on level 7. Great atmosphere, decor... Love it.
My son had arranged for me to stay here as a guest and as a special treat and boy it was just that "special." My room was exceptionally large, as was the bed, and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. I can highly recommend staying.
This was a surprise trip for my daughters 30th Birthday and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay both in Berlin and the Soho house. We were especially spoilt with the extremely good weather which meant we could take full advantage of the rooftop pool and bar. The staff are so friendly and at my request made the most delicious strawberry cream cake on the day of her birthday and we had the restaurant to ourselves. Everything about this stay was so good, food, rooms, staff, location we would definitely return.
I loved the Berlin house. Having stayed at a few all over the world, I really did enjoy my night in Berlin. The rooms were spacious (I had a small room as I was on my own) and the best was comfortable as always and well furnished. The room was a little tired, with a few small things noticed in the bathroom and ceiling. Could do with a little spruce up. However, the service was friendly, the rooftop and club bars were busy and a great vibe. I enjoyed my stay and would come back again.
Coolest place to hang out - bars, restaurants, roof pool-side bar, gym, hotel, boutique, all in one great space bang in the centre of Berlin. Hip without ostentation. Great service with waiters obviously really happy in their job acting as style ambassadors. Cool music, great food.
The main criteria is to be artistic and creative - lawyers and tax accoountants stay away.... What a great idea - hope it will mushroom. Well done.
