In one of the most vibrant areas of Berlin-Mitte, where creativity and art come together, nestles the warm and cosy ARCOTEL Velvet Berlin. Thanks to the attractive location the hotel is a perfect address for culture, entertainment, fashion and for discovering berlins sights. The Museum Island, the popular Hackesche Hoefe, the famous Friedrichstrasse, the Unter den Linden boulevard and numerous theaters, galleries and lots of cultural scenes are reachable within walking distance. Modern and vibrant " like Berlin, warm and sensual " like velvet: the ARCOTEL Velvet is an expression of cultivated individualism, a place for the senses and for enjoyment - and to feel at home. As soon as you enter the hotel you can feel this unique atmosphere.

A prime base in Mitte

Located next to the remnants of the Tascheles arts commune, the Arcotel Velvet is in the heart of Mitte, and an easy walk to many excellent locations. The rooms are somewhat unusual -- the shower is blocked off from the rest of the living room only with a curtain -- but very comfortable and full of character. I was originally booked on the smoking floor (the fifth), but was able to move. Staff is attentive and helpful.

Location, Location, Location

We had very good experiences here on two occasions. The staff was very helpful and tried to be accomodating. The location is very central. There are terrific ethnic restaurantsa very close by and it is possible to walk to all of the major museums. Breakfast was included during our previous stay; this time it was not. it would have been nice to sit at breakfast and meet other guests.

Great location, comfortable room

My husband and I just returned from a great trip to Berlin, where we spent seven nights at the Arcotel Velvet. We were very pleased with our hotel choice, both for its convenient access to public transportation and its clean, well-designed rooms. There are scores of bars and restaurants in the immediate area, serving just about every ethnic cuisine you can think of: Brazilian, Cuban, Thai, Italian, Vietnamese, and yes, even German food. We skipped the pricey hotel breakfast and had coffee and pastries every morning at the little coffee shop right next to the hotel -- very friendly service, with some English spoken by most of the employees. Our room was quiet, thanks to the thermal-pane windows and drapes, despite being right above the busy street below (we were on the fifth floor). I notice some reviewers are bothered by the bathroom design, but we thought it was great. Yes, the shower and sink open directly into the room, but there's a sheer wrap-around curtain (which helps to diffuse glare from the bathroom lights) and the toilet area is completely private (i.e., a separate little room with a door). There were plenty of clothes hangars and a large Ikea-type armoire with conveniently-sized shelves and a room safe. Bed linens were high quality, with separate "his and hers" duvets for each side of the bed -- very clever and comfy. If we return to Berlin (which we hope to do, given how much there is to see), we'll definitely stay here again.
