Trying to figure out how to celebrate Valentine’s Day in Berlin can be overwhelming. In a city that never sleeps, madness grows on you over time, and trying to find a quiet space to escape and dedicate yourself to love is not always easy. We have been here for over three years now, and our best option has always been to pretend for a day that we were somewhere fabulous, even if we were just staying in,spending the night glued to the TV
watching romantic movies with Ryan Gosling. However; this year we were lucky enough to escape cheesy films, as we were invited for a romantic getaway at the newly-opened Hotel am Steinplatz in Charlottenburg. It sure felt weird to pack our bags and go on a short holiday in our own city, but it was all worth it, and by far one of the best Valentine’s Day ever!
Charlottenburg might not be one of the first districts that comes to mind when you think of Berlin, but it should be. It’s actually a very nice residential area, just a five-minute walk from Berlin’s famous shopping street Ku’damm, and a wonderful spot and hang-out for young creatives. The Hotel am Steinplatz, located right in front of the University of Arts, is a gorgeous 5-star Hotel that has been
recently reopened in a building that dates back to the 19th century. Our time there has been lovely for many reasons; not only was the stuff incredibly nice and the food super delicious, but the hotel itself is just too beautiful, from the whimsical and modern design of the room, to the comfy bed and sauna on the last floor. Definitely the best hotel experience in a long time!
