If you’ve se­cretly wanted to go hol­i­day­ing in a car­a­van but didn’t much dig the re­al­ity of vast camp­sites, braai smoke and tow­ing the equiv­a­lent of a huge wind­break be­hind your car, then the Huet­ten­palast in Ber­lin may be the an­swer. The ac­tual ho­tel is spread among two for­mer fac­tory build­ings, in­side of which are parked eight beau­ti­fully re­stored car­a­vans, a cou­ple of cab­ins and loft-style ho­tel rooms — the lat­ter with en suite bath­rooms. You get two roofs for the price of one. There are two spot­less com­mu­nal bath­rooms — this is Ger­many, af­ter all — and com­mu­nal liv­ing ar­eas as well as a café where break­fast is served.

The in­te­ri­ors of both the car­a­vans and the ware­houses are clean, sim­ple and bright.
