The high ceilings, stately rooms and impressive scale of Hotel Zoo Berlin reference a lavish past, while a new polish restores the glamour faded by time.

If the walls of Hotel Zoo Berlin could talk, they would tell tales of a grand boulevard that has stood the test of time. The regal townhouse of Kurfürstendamm 25 was originally built in 1891 as a private residence by architect Alfred Messel, one of Berlin’s most reputable architects during the turn of the century.

First opened as a hotel in 1911, Hotel Zoo Berlin has seen it all: decadence and devastation, renewal and transformation.

Crackly gramophones laid the soundtrack for the swanky parties of the Twenties, where the Charleston was danced and absinthe surely imbibed. The boulevard, lined with cabarets, cinemas and theatres, became dubbed the ‘Hollywood of Europe’.

During the Golden Age of ’50s-’70s the hotel became the official meeting point for the celebrated Berlin International Film Festival stars, and the likes of Romy Schneider, Sophia Loren and Hildegard Knef glided from red carpet premieres to the hotel’s catwalk.

Today’s HOTEL ZOO BERLIN has a new chapter to tell. After two years of restoration and extensive renovations by American design team Dayna Lee and Ted Berner, the hotel re- opened its legendary doors in 2014. The high ceilings, stately rooms and impressive scale of the 144-room residence reference a lavish past, while a new polished interior restores the glamour faded by time. Those entering the doors of the hotel today – an international cast of creatives and scene-stealers – would not recognize it from its former incarnation. Guided through the doors on a jade-coloured catwalk designed by Diane von Furstenberg, guests are transported from past to future.

Expect a deliberate play on scale amidst the homelike atmosphere: a six-meter false door made of rich walnut wood out of Alice in Wonderland or a two-ton moulding of enlarged lilies mounted to the ceiling. Whether guests come to enjoy the exceptional Asian-European cuisine at GRACE Restaurant, the vibrant atmosphere of the GRACE Bar that revives the roaring ‘20s, or one of the city’s most spectacular rooftop terraces, the entire setting creates an alternate universe where everyday life is quickly forgotten.

Days at HOTEL ZOO BERLIN start with calid tones that inspire the motivation and creativity of its guests for the hours ahead. The late morning brings melodic pop tunes, followed by sensual harmonies to convey warmth and a sense of comfort. Think of a glamorous, deep soul and contemporary R&B mix that blends into pulverising hip- hop beats with dazzling lyrical power. Here the urban spirit of West Berlin contrasts with the flair of the old townhouse. The evening atmosphere catches up with groovy, energising songs to accompany the cosmopolitan charisma of GRACE Restaurant, the in-spot for casual fine dining in a stunning setting among local celebrities and Hollywood superstars such as Brad Pitt, Bruce Willis or Goldie Hawn.
