With two Berlin hotels — The Mani and Hotel Amano — already under its belt, the Amano Group’s newest venture in the German capital is an amplification of the modern purist aesthetic that has become its signature.
Handily located in Mitte, Berlin’s gentrified historic city centre, the property is an easy stroll from the Hauptbahnhof, and cultural landmarks such as The Hamburger Bahnhof (Museum of Modern Art) and the Reichstag.
With 250 rooms, it’s not the most intimate hotel, but with each featuring hardwood herringbone floors and a committed monochrome scheme framed by plush dark drapes, a sense of luxury pervades.
Public spaces are no different. Not least in the ground floor bistro where both locals and guests convene for Israeli-influenced French cuisine. On the same floor, a series of slick conference rooms, buttressed by a generous planted courtyard, satisfy the needs of business travellers. There’s more scope for conviviality on the uppers levels. In the sixth floor Apartment Bar, huge windows give views of the Reichstag amongst plush mint bar stools, low industrial lighting, and a glossy backlit bar, while the brave can attempt to keep up with the city’s infamous partygoers on the rooftop terrace bar.
