Residing on Berlin's famous Kurfürstendamm, Hotel Zoo Berlin has a glamourous, illustrious past. Literally everybody - from intellectuals to actors to politicians - has spent a night within its iconic walls over course of the century. Built in 1891 as a private residence, it opened its doors as a luxury hotel in 1911. After surviving two world wars, it established itself as the official VIP hotel of the Berlin International Film Festival in the 1950s. In Nov 2014 and after 2 years of refurbishment led by architect Designer Dayna Lee (NY/LA) Hotel Zoo reopened its doors. Lee has captured the property's former glory and combined it with a New York Town house element with whimsical, avant-garde touches, ensuring that you will feel like a star from the moment you enter the hotel. 144 bedrooms and suites, a destination bar and restaurant GRACE, unique bespoke design elements, as well as Green Globe certification, make you feel right at home.
