Berlin’s first boutique hotel sits in what proprietor Tini Countess Rothkirch says is “the most beautiful spot in the city”—directly across from Gendarmenmarkt square. And although the Sofitel occupies a GDR-era building, the interiors here (all brushed steel, gleaming glass, and polished black marble) are up-to-the-minute modern. The 70 rooms and 22 suites are small yet luxurious studies in minimalist chic: white walls, fluffy white featherbeds, chrome fixtures, Bose sound systems. Some have intimate balconies overlooking the square and the ornate dome of the French Cathedral. The hotel’s fantastic wood-floored attic spa/wellness center and ground-floor breakfast room both have soaring ceilings that keep things airy and light.

Room to Book: For stunning views of the square’s Concert Hall, ask for an upper-story balcony room on the Gendarmenmarkt side.

Doubles From $447.

Insider Tip:

Keep an eye out for the affable countess herself, who often lends a hand in serving breakfast to hotel guests.
