When
Being You

It is unfortunately way too often that we forget the importance of reconnecting with ourselves …and truly being ourselves… with no external expectations to satisfy, with no responsibilities for making anyone else but yourself happy. And then suddenly the moment comes… And you start breathing … you start connecting with nature, you slow down and just seize and value the moment… You discover love for simple tasks and find joy ()

Asse from
Copenhagen

This beautiful lady is Asse. She’s 95. She’s from Copenhagen and she and her daughter just spent the weekend with us. Aase specifically asked to stay here after her grand daughter recommended the hotel to her. She said her favourite thing about it was all the fresh flowers and the young people enjoying the cosy lounge. During her time in Berlin, she also went to visit the Hotel Adlon because her ()

Back With More

Film was more a cover up to go to Berlin because I was in love with ()

The Arcade Fire
Aftershow

One hot, wild night during Tiki Taka, Arcade Fire played their after show party in the courtyard. Win took over the decks, Sarah mesmerised with her violin and Richie, Will, Jeremy and Tim came on and punked it up as the Phi Slamma Jamma boys. Take a flashback below:

I love it when a
plan comes together

Good things happen often happen spontaneously at the hotel. An ordinary Saturday evening can suddenly turn into a fully emotional one. The plan for Saturday was this: the restaurant will prepare it’s healthy, tasty food, Volker will wipe and spin his records and the bartender will shake his old-fashioned cocktails. But suddenly our friend Pete Kartsounes decided to give us a bluesy, folky, funky show with his smoky voice. But suddenly ()

Our Restaurant
Full Circle
