soho house berlin

Berlin, Germany

Berlin is one of our favourite cities and for many good reasons we usually stay at the Soho House. The rooms decorated in classic “Mad Men” style are spectacular but we also love the vibe in the lounge on the seventh floor and the hotel spa with its Turkish hammam. It also helps that the hotel is located in the middle of Mitte with a a roof top swimming pool! The bigger rooms here don’t come cheap, but they are definitely worth the price. Soho House is a members club and only hotel guests and members are allowed in. As a guest you can take up to two guests with you.


At the Soho House you can choose between four different room categories and apartments. We have only stayed in the “Large” room and see no reason to change that. Here you get around 80 square meters of wonderful mid-century modern luxury. A large bathtub in the middle of the room, a king size bed, a red velvet couch, steam shower and a vinyl player with a few classic records. The grand bathroom comes fully stocked with all sorts of Cowshed products and if you fancy a drink while you are getting ready for a night out - the hotel will send a bartender to your room whipping up dry martinis while you soak in the tub. Even bigger rooms (130sqm) with a similar design are available but the price tag is just as grand. Smaller rooms are also nice but we think you will regret not trading up.

If you can't stand agency people with scarfs this is probably not the place for you!


Food & Wine

The member’s floor of the Soho House features a restaurant and a bar. Because this is a members club there is always a lot of people having lunch or a drink after office hours. The big bar under what most be one of the coolest crystal chandeliers in town is the perfect place for people watching and the drinks are very good. The restaurant is a straight forward deal, but the food is good and perfect for lunch or a quick dinner. At breakfast you can choose from different types of eggs or omeletes. There are plenty of restaurants around the hotel and we recommend Grill Royal for the perfect steak or Kuchi Sushi for Japanese.


Since this is a members club the gym is full size and probably better than the one you use at home. One of the highlights of the Soho House is the spa. As with other Soho House hotels there is a Cowshed Spa that offers a wide range of treatments at decent prices. There is also a fantastic Turkish hammam in addition to the Roman steam sauna and a regular sauna. On the warm stones of the Hammam you can relax for hours and dream your self away. The Spa is popular so make sure to reserve your treatments in advance. If you are visiting during spring and summer you can enjoy the large swimming pool at the rooftop and soak in the city sun from one of the lounge chairs.


The staff at the Soho House are very nice but it’s the guests that make this hotel. Soho House is a gathering place for the creative industry in Berlin and copywriters, actors, PR-people and art directors - creating a constant buzz on the member’s floor. We have always ended up in some interesting conversation around the bar when we have been there. The hotel is also popular among visiting celebs and we have encountered stars like George Clooney and John Goodman.
