The splurge-worthy Honigmond Garden Hotel (“honigmond” is the literal translation of "honeymoon" in German) surely lives up to its name. We hope this is one honeymoon that will never end (at least as long as we can afford it)! The four-star hotel seems plucked from a storybook, offering rooms that are sumptuously decorated and lovingly restored.
Pros: Beautiful décor. Nice garden. Historic building. Friendly staff.
Cons: Pricey. No elevator.
Each of the Honigmond Garden’s 60 guest rooms is individually decorated—with flair. In one double, deep red walls and a stained hardwood floor set the stage, accompanied by a cast-iron bed and gold-framed mirror. Another, a charming single, features a lovely carved wooden bed, with matching nightstand, light green walls and a sitting area.
Rooms in the back look out onto a splendid oasis of a garden, sculpted and landscaped to allow maximum peace and quiet. In front-facing rooms you can barely hear the busy Invalidenstrasse bustle outside, thanks to the first-rate soundproofing.
All rooms are equipped with air conditioning, a ceiling fan and a telephone.
The Honigmond Garden occupies a meticulously restored building that dates back to 1845. The reception area is artfully done up in "old-village" style, with exposed brick, dark period furniture and flickering candelabras.
The hotel’s sister property, the Honigmond Restaurant-Hotel, is equally stunning and was a longtime Cheapo pick. Unfortunately, rates at that property have have risen so much that we can no longer recommend the Honigmond Restaurant-Hotel (the Honigmond Garden is already pushing the seams of our “splurge wallet”), however we still have a soft spot for its long history and lavish interiors.
A lovely breakfast is sometimes included in the room rate (check when booking). Wi-Fi is available for an additional charge. Note that the hotel does not have an elevator.
With rates starting at €125 for a double, the Honigmond Garden is hardly a cheap hotel, especially in relatively affordable Berlin. However, we list it on EuroCheapo because of all that it provides. Not only is it a special experience if you’re looking to splurge, but its lovely décor, easy location, friendly service and historic factor add up to a solid value.

About the Honigmond Garden Hotel neighborhood
Once the heart of East Berlin, Mitte was the former East Germany's showcase hood. With the grand Unter den Linden boulevard running right through it, Mitte's grand buildings, government offices (including the awe-inspiring Reichstag), major museums, embassies, and side streets are undeniably majestic. On the north side of Mitte, cool shops and night spots lure visitors both day and night.
