The King Of Berlin’s High Design Hotels

The King Of Berlin’s High Design Hotels

Berlin is one of the greatest cities in the world for high design and artsy hotels. And king among the German capital’s artsy accommodations is the Propeller Island City Lodge. Its name is a misnomer. This hotel does not feel like a lodge, is not on an island and has no propellers. But it is in a city.

Some of the rooms, the ones that get the most attention, are truly outrageous. There’s the mirror-filled room (room #15), the upside-down room (#23), the all-orange room (#1) and the jail-cell room (#26) which has the toilet in the middle of it and a “door” that’s literally a hole in a wall. You can sleep on a bed that’s suspended from the ceiling by ropes (#12) or inside a vampire’s coffin (#31). Check out the photos, below.

Key to enjoying your stay at the Propeller Island City Lodge is to get into the spirit of the place. This isn’t Berlin’s most luxurious and comfortable digs. Some of the rooms, especially the singles, are on the small side; some rooms also share bathroom facilities. If you want to experience the artsy aspect of staying here but are put off by it’s more wacky rooms we suggest choosing one of the larger, more functional, en suite options like the elegant Temple Room (#13) or the minimalist “Chicken Curry” room (#33). Then again, how often do you have a chance to stay in a barn-themed room (#36) that includes a big pile of potato sacks packed with foam rubber?
