The 25hours Bikini Hotel in Berlin is located in the west part of the city and is one of the most trendy hotels I have stayed at. Right opposite the Zoologischer Garten, the location is great. There’s a jungle and urban theme all over the hotel which makes the 25hours Hotel quite unique. The lobby is located on the 3rd floor, you first have to take an elevator before entering the lobby. Oh, I should mention the elevator! It is quite fun ‘riding’ the elevator … they’re quite dark and there are 2 screens featuring some cartoons and music, I loved it J And then you enter the lobby with a direct view of the Zoologischer Garten. There are hammocks everywhere and I almost felt I was in a jungle for a second.
The reception staff was pretty nice… Actually, most staff members I met here were young. And I must say, there’s a young vibe all around this hotel. The rooms are special and not like an ‘ordinary’ hotel room. A small cute monkey will await you! The first room we saw had a hammock and offered a direct view of the Zoologischer Garten. We did move because I was traveling with my dad and we wanted 2 separate beds. The second room was very nice as well, decorated in urban style. Every room has an open bathroom with (rain)shower and separate toilet.
For an additional charge (10 EUR) guests have access to the spa facilities located on the 9th floor. Again, very nicely decorated and you have a direct view of the Zoologischer Garten. Altough the fitness area was quite small, I was able to work out a bit. The panoramic sauna is quite nice and the place looked immaculately clean. Complimentary water is offered. After working out or spending some time in the sauna, relaxing in those comfy loungers feels soooooo good. It is the perfect place to relax after a full day of walking in Berlin! By the way, some rooms include bike rentals and guests can use a Mini to explore the city!
At night, we went up to the top floor and had a look at the bar and restaurant. What a great place to hang out with friends and family! Offering stunning views of the Zoologischer Garten and great music, you will not get bored here! Prices were fair…
We had to leave early the next morning and were not able to enjoy the breakfast. Instead, they offered us 2 breakfast bags which we enjoyed very much on our way to the airport! What a great service and most important … because we checked out at 3:45 AM … everything was done with a smile! A stay at the 25hours Bikini Hotel is highly recommended when staying in the west district of Berlin.
