Schlosshotel Berlin by Patrick Hellmann
Nestled within the serene, tree-lined streets of Berlin's residential district, Grunewald, is a hidden gem - Patrick Hellmann Schlosshotel. This discreet former palace, tucked behind baroque-style gates, effortlessly camouflages with the neighboring stately homes. The only clue to its true identity as a hotel is the golden luggage cart stationed near its side entrance.
As you step inside, the establishment feels more like a private mansion than a typical hotel, thanks largely to the fashionable interiors designed by German fashion legend, Karl Lagerfeld. The check-in area welcomes you with plum walls offset by white trim and checkerboard floors. The impressive two-story lobby exudes an air of elegance, with crimson damask wall coverings, a dark wood coffered ceiling, matching accents, and a gold chandelier suspended above luxurious dark purple velvet sofas.
The chic ambiance continues into the newly established GQ Bar. Beneath its ornate coffered ceiling, the walls are adorned with large black-and-white fashion photographs set against a herringbone backdrop, while a sleek black bar invites patrons to indulge.
The incredible décor in the public areas encourages guests to linger. The GQ Bar, the first permanent location in Western Europe, offers a sultry atmosphere for sipping a Manhattan. The spa, located in the basement, provides a tranquil retreat with an indoor pool, Jacuzzi, hammam, Finnish sauna, salon, and gym.
The verdant outdoor space invites guests to take leisurely walks or simply sit and enjoy the beauty of the trees, the soothing sounds of the fountain, and the statues. You can also admire these views from Le Jardin, a glass-walled conservatory, while enjoying your breakfast of eggs, buffalo mozzarella, pretzel bread, and a mango lassi shooter.
Although located in West Berlin, Schlosshotel is a distance away from the city center, making it the ideal escape from the city's fast pace. It is situated close to the expansive Grunewald forest and just four miles from the Kurfürstendamm shopping strip, Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, and Zoo Berlin.
The hotel boasts 43 rooms and 10 suites, each uniquely designed by owner Patrick Hellmann. Newly redesigned rooms feature "New York" and "Boheme" themes, with fabrics from Hellmann's own suits - velvet, silk, and flannel - adorning the room. The color palette is fresh and sophisticated, with combinations of gray, purple, black, and white.
Among the suites, the Grunewald Suite Karl Lagerfeld stands out. It was designed by the eponymous fashion icon himself and features a spacious living room and an art deco bathroom with white marble flooring and French handmade seafoam-green wall tiles. The largest suite, the Kaiser Suite, offers an elegant dining room that seats six and two bedrooms, with the antique library and its original frescoes being the main attraction.
The hotel's fine-dining restaurant offers Mediterranean-influenced dishes like lamb with rhubarb, beans, carrots, baby potatoes, and shallots. It features wood-paneled walls with gold details and white cloth-covered tables. During summer, guests can dine on the terrace while enjoying the view. The GQ Bar also serves elevated pub food, such as wagyu burgers. Later this year, the hotel plans to open a Vogue Bar.
