As I’ve lived in Berlin for about ten years now, I don’t really think about where people should stay when they’re visiting Berlin, be it a hotel or an Airbnb. I think more about which visa to get, how to find a flat, and where to learn German — all of which is outlined in my detailed moving to Berlin guide.
Yet as many of my readers are coming to Berlin on vacation, they frequently ask for guidance about the best places to stay in Berlin. While Berlin is comprised of many different areas, Mitte is a district in the heart of the city perfectly suited to tourists wanting to see the city’s main sites like Brandenburger Tor, the Berliner Dom, Checkpoint Charlie, and more.
To that end, I’ve put together this comprehensive list of hotels in Berlin Mitte.
Best Hotels In Berlin Mitte (Personal Picks From A Local)
All hotels on this list were personally and carefully selected by me and feature 15 fabulous places ranging from opulent five-star hotels for high-end travelers, to four-star boutique properties, and more budget-friendly three-star accommodations that provide a level of affordable luxury.
