Formerly the quarters of the Royal Danish Embassy, Das Stue is now in the top echelon of Berlin’s hotels. In a way, little has changed—it’s still the setting of civilized visits and attention to detail. The neo-classical design of the original construction has been sympathetically restored, and is well complemented by a modern extension at the rear of the building. Its name means ‘living room’ in Danish, and this commitment to comfort is evident throughout, from spacious bedrooms to the sleek, modern dining room. The latter is called ‘cinco’ and is Michelin star-winning Catalonian Chef Paco Pérez’s first project outside Spain—as you’d expect, his Mediterranean cuisine doesn’t disappoint. Stationed just seconds away from the oasis of green that is Tiergarten—this is a bonafide getaway amidst the metropolis.
