Best for luxury



No list of Berlin’s best hotels is complete without the Adlon. Though the original 1907 structure burned down in 1945, the hotel was rebuilt after Germany’s reunificat­ion to once again become the preferred address of VIPs. Marlene Dietrich, Charlie

Chaplin and Albert Einstein stayed in its heyday, with Barack Obama and the late Queen Elizabeth II among more recent guests. All will have enjoyed its classic decor, refined service and Brandenbur­g Gate views. It’s grande dame hotel territory until you get to the price, which is surprising­ly affordable when compared to top hotels in other European capitals.

ROOMS: From €450 (£392), B&B.
