What looks like a monument from the outside is actually one of Berlin’s best-loved boutique hotels, Das Stue. Right on the edge of a park, it’s comfy, convenient, a little luxurious and something quite unique in the middle of a bustling city. I won’t mention the Apple screen and keyboard intergrated into the TV and music system, the monogrammed slippers and gown, or the digital controls across the entire room. And the foyer. You could stand there for ages just taking it in. Old and new, no one else does them both quite like Europe.
