Top 5 Berlin Hotels For The Young (And The Young At Heart)

Erlebniswelt Kinderinsel Hotel

The “Erlebniswelt Kinderinsel” (Children’s Island Adventure World) is the first hotel in Berlin designed especially for children. This hotel/ daycare centre provides many services including babysitting; pick-ups and drop-offs; children’s parties; adventure and sightseeing tours for kids; holiday programs including lessons for cooking, dancing and theatre workshops; and pyjama sleepover parties and story reading nights

Children ages 0 to 14 are welcome, and from all over the world, as the staff currently speak 17 languages! The hotel aims to supply a stimulating, loving and creative environment for the children. Parents can comfortably leave their children here for a couple of hours, or up to a week.

Centrally located in the Mitte District.

14 beds available, prices upon request.

Park Inn Berlin Alexanderplatz

Fantastically located opposite the TV Tower, this hotel is one for the courageous and adventurous. At a height of 150m, this is the tallest hotel in Berlin. From the 40th floor guests can take the plunge by ‘Base-Flying’ down the side of the building! Kind of like bungee jumping, it is in fact the world’s fastest winch, allowing people to plummet vertically downwards at near freefall speed. Not one for the faint-hearted! The system is often used by stuntmen in movies. On Fridays it can be done at night- perfect start to a night out in Berlin!

As well as this unusual activity, the hotel itself is comfortable and fully-equipped with everything guests need to relax. A spa and fitness area, restaurants and bars, a rooftop terrace to view those brave enough to take the jump, and 1,012 rooms and suites.

Part of the Radisson Blu group, the 4 star hotel is extremely well presented. Rooms are available for around €122 per night.

Pension 11.Himmel & Himmelhoch C.ehn

A hotel with a difference, as the staff of the hostel are children and adolescents from the Berliner Kinderring organisation, which aims to train children in professional skills. The children of the neighbourhood have helped to rebuild the hostel, with help of artists from around the world. The rooms are uniquely painted and decorated.

The hostel is on the 10th and 11th floors of a Communist-era residential tower in a district of Berlin that does not have a great reputation. The vision of the mastermind, social worker Marina Bikadi, is to give the children from a deprived area ‘a professional orientation… and new perspectives.’ Two of the children, aged 10 and 11, come here after school and receive guests, make the beds and prepare food. Others do marketing and PR work. The hostel aims to welcome families and children as guests, for an affordable price.

The project receives government funding for investing in the area, so a one- night stay in the Pension will cost only €11.

Located in Marzahn, on the North-East side of Berlin.

25 Hours Hotel Bikini

This playful hotel makes the jungle come alive, with animals and plants covering the walls and ceilings. Bikini is located close to Berlin Zoo- an apt position for such a wild hotel. The rooms on the zoo side are called ‘Jungle’ rooms, and offer views of the elephant enclosure and ape house. The rooms on the other side are ‘Urban’ rooms, with views of the city.

A rooftop bar and restaurant allows guests to view the city and the zoo from above. The ‘Monkey Bar’ is a night-time hotspot. The ‘Neni’ restaurant creates its food based on the idea that everyone will want to try a little of everything. Pots and pans are taken straight from the kitchen and put on the tables for guests to help themselves. The cuisine is a mixture of many countries, from Spanish to Russian, Moroccan to Austrian.

A bakery is located on the third floor, serving freshly made pastries and cakes, and many varieties of coffee. The wellbeing area and Jungle sauna with views of the zoo make this outlandish hotel extra special. And taking advantage of the free mini and bicycle rental is a must!

Double ‘Jungle’ rooms from €140 per night.

Huetten Palast

A campsite with a difference! Huetten Palast makes glamping even cooler with their differently designed caravans, wooden cabins, or old factory hall rooms. Open all year round, you can enjoy camping – in the middle of the city – during spring, summer, autumn or winter.

Everything is there to make your stay comfortable- a beautiful garden, a hammock, a swing seat, the choice is yours! One of the quirkier accommodations is an old DDR style camper, set above ground overlooking the other campers. Although our favourite is ‘The Turtle’- a treehouse style wooden room floating above a turtle!

Located in the south of the city, Neukolln district.

From €69 per night
