Soho House Berlin

Top choice design hotel in Scheunenviertel

The Berlin edition of the eponymous members' club and celeb-fave doubles as a hotel open to all. The vintage-eclectic rooms vary dramatically in size, decor and amenities, but may include vinyl-record players, huge flat-screen TVs and free-standing tubs. Staying here also buys access to members-only areas such as the club floor with bar and restaurant, the rooftop pool/bar/restaurant and a plush movie theatre.

It's all in a Bauhaus building that's seen stints as a department store, Hitler Youth HQ and East German party elite offices.
