Frommers

This has to be just about the loveliest small hotel in Berlin. The rooms are decorated with flair in a mixture of Conran-modern and antique furniture. The en suite bathrooms are integrated into the rooms without disrupting the elegantly proportioned townhouse architecture. Even the TVs are stylish. The breakfast room has a cooking area and a fridge full of goodies should you feel peckish in the wee hours and the staff are utterly charming. Highly recommended.

Berlin Book 2003

This friendly and helpful fourth floor hotel is in a restored "art nouveau" era building with well designed contemporary touches and some original features.
Beds and bathrooms (cleverly built into the rooms to take advantage of natural light and
not to interfere with the original cellings) are modern, furniture is antique and floors are wooden.
The buffett breakfast is in a
sunny room. There is also an honesty bar which guests can tuck into at any time.

Lonely Planet

A rickety birdcage lift drops you off on the 4th floor, leading to one of Berlin's best pensions, offering a unique blend of youthful flair and tradition. The affable owners, both fluent in English, have made creative use of colour and furnished each room (all nonsmoking) with hand-picked antiques and heavenly beds. Bonuses: the sunny breakfast room and honour bar.

Timeout

On the fourth floor of an Art Nouveau apartment house, this little known hotel is an atmospheric choice. Even the elevator is a historic gem of the upmarket and desirable neighborhood. Established in the late 1970s, Art Nouveau was fully renovated in 1998. The well-furnished and comfortable rooms are pleasantly decorated and high-ceilinged, all with excellent beds. Rooms in the rear are more tranquil except when the schoolyard is full of children at play. There's an honor bar in the lobby where guests keep track of their own drinks. A generous breakfast is the only meal served.

Fodor`s

Teh owners' discerning taste in antiques, color combinations, and even televisons (desigend by Phillippe Starck) makes this B&B-like penson a pleasure to live in. Each room has a prize piece, such as a hand-carved 18th-century Chinese dresser or a chandelier from the Komische Oper's set of Don Carlos. Several rooms are hung with a large black-and-white photo by Sabine Kacunko.

Geo Special

The house style 'Art Nouveau' is located right behind the Kudamm. The rooms are large, the beds comfortable, the service friendly.
All in all there are just 14 rooms, and one suite, all non-smoking. So: book early!
