Hotel AMO by Amano, Berlin, Germany
Hotel AMO is the classic short break hotel - right in the heart of the action with small but stylish rooms. If you're here to hit the town, especially if it's your first time in the city, this will do nicely.
Rooms available from £56.85 per night
Hotel AMO is near the junction of Friedrichstrasse and Oranienburger Strasse in the busy Mitte district. Oranienberger Tor U-Bahn station and Oranienburger Strasse S-Bahn station are next door. Sammlung Boros is a huge wartime bunker that now holds a collection of contemporary art from 1990 onwards; take a guided tour to learn more about the history of the building.
It's an easy walk south to the River Spree and east via Monbijoupark to the Museumsinsel.
By plane: direct flights to Berlin Brandenburg from London (1 hour 40 minutes), Manchester (1 hour 55 minutes) and Edinburgh (2 hours 5 minutes). It's a 45-minute drive to the hotel. Book flights to Berlin.
CHARACTER & STYLE
You enter this five-story hotel through a passage off Friedrichstrasse, either via steps or by a lift that transports guests to a reception and lounge area where the feel is that of an upmarket nightclub, with a black ceiling, dark green chairs, wood-effect floor and low lighting.
There are minimal facilities, but most guests are usually out and about. There didn't seem to be a lot of staff, which meant waiting at times, but they were helpful with suggestions of what to do.
- Free Wi-Fi
Four room categories start with the frankly-named Economy; if you want a king size bed opt for Comfort or Superior rooms. High-spec interiors feature furnishings in shades of blue with offset by brass lights. Double beds have two single duvets and white-tiled bathrooms have showers.
Room types: Economy Room, Standard Room, Comfort Room, Superior Room
Key amenities: ensuite bathroom with Anyah toiletries, hairdryer, smart TV, free Wi-Fi
FOOD & DRINK
JOSEPH is a buzzy candle-lit restaurant next to the hotel's entrance, serving up Israeli cuisine including pleasant veggie dishes - it's popular so book ahead. Breakfast is an unexceptional buffet including fruit salad and cold meats and cheeses, served in the dark and windowless downstairs lounge.
Joseph Restaurant: casual restaurant, Israeli cuisine. Open daily, from 6pm. Mains from €16.50.
