The three-star Hotel Alexander beim Kurfürstendamm dishes up a late-'80s style that is so well preserved it could be a hipster art exhibit. It’s also got plenty for the modern-minded, including an eco-friendly ethos and 18 airy guest rooms.
Pros: Fabulous location. Eco-friendly. Great breakfast. Excellent service.
Cons: Can pick up noise.
Guests who appreciate “modern” design (read: black metal furniture, red carpets and decorative triangular light fixtures) will appreciate what the Alexander has in store for them. All furniture, designed in the late '90s by a local artist, celebrates the era (we know this doesn’t sound “modern,” but trust us—it works). For instance, in one room an imposing black iron wardrobe sits next to metal piping chairs and slick glass tabletops.
The hotel is spread over two floors. We preferred the brighter top floor, where two rooms have balconies, to the darker ground floor. Either way, you can trust that your room will have the usual comforts, including a phone, safe and television (a minibar is also available upon request). If you’re the claustrophobic sort, choose a “Superior” room, which offers a bit of extra space and doesn’t cost much more.
The private bathrooms are spic-and-span, tiled and fresh. They offer a hair dryer (but no toiletries).
The Hotel Alexander is the sort of place that guests remember. Not only does it have a great location on pretty Pariserstrasse, two blocks from the Ku'damm, but it offers the sort of friendly service that makes guests feel at home. Plus, it’s a “green hotel,” using clean energy, organic foods and natural cleaning products.
A lovely breakfast spread, included in the room rate, is served daily in a bright Art Deco-style breakfast room, or on the lush terrace when weather permits. Wi-Fi is free throughout.

About the Hotel Alexander beim Kurfürstendamm neighborhood
Wilmersdorf is south of Charlottenburg. Though quite central, it's not exactly a booming hood. Pockets of a lively café culture can be found in Wilmersdorf, but for the most part this is a quiet area. Wilmersdorf is a great neighborhood for those who seek a central location and wish not to run the risk of stumbling across noisy nighttime revelers.
