Das Stue, Berlin

The exterior of Das Stue in Berlin’s diplomatic quarter has such a sense of classical stately authority that it feels like a perfect film location – wartime generals pulling up outside in an extravagantly skirted Mercedes-Benz, marching inside with secret plans and diplomatic pouches to plot the next phase of operations.

Built in the 1930s to a Johann Emil Schaudt design, Das Stue is now a hotel fit for a visiting film crew, or real-life dignitary, thanks to sympathetically realised public spaces by design-superstar Patricia Urquiola, modern room design by LVG Arquitectura S.L.P, and the addition of a new wing at the rear from Axthelm Architekten. The interior has a level of luxury, both period and contemporary, that belies the stern-looking façade, and Das Stue continues to prove it is no slave to history with up-to-the-minute eco-friendly heating systems. The neighbouring Tiergarten provides views from some of the 80 guest rooms, which have a boutique feel despite the size of the hotel. Wunderbar.
