Hi There!

Welcome to my blog.

I love cities - glam - airlines  -  and photography.  All of the images on this site were taken by me on my travels around the planet.

I can't wait to have you come on some of my adventures!

 

Indigo Hotel Berlin - Ku'Damm: Review – (BER)

Indigo Hotel Berlin - Ku'Damm: Review – (BER)

I am a huge fun of the Indigo Hotel brand.  You don’t pay a lot and their properties are over the top fun and cool.  They always have unique designs that reflect the city they are in – all with a hip, contemporary slant.

Here’s a review of my recent stay at their establishment in Berlin.

Location

The Indigo Hotel is in a great spot for exploring Berlin: Ku’damm.  It’s three blocks from the Zoo Garden train station, which has several main lines going through it.  And if you are in the city for a conference like I was – it’s only a few stops to the Messe (Trade Exhibitions Halls).

On top of this it’s an easy stroll to the sites and elegant shops that line Kurfürstendamm.

The Room

I loved the rooms at this hotel.  They were large, stylish and bright.  I could have moved in there was so much storage and space!

I particularly appreciated the generous size of the work area.  Designer seating, a slick white desk, and a personal Bosch coffee machine within reach – I couldn’t ask for more as I motored through PowerPoint presentations!

The Bathroom

The bathroom was almost spa like. A massive chamber – with a walk-in shower covered in iridescent tiles.  The multiple shower heads (including a rain option) were a welcome site after walking about the trade show floors for hours!

The cherry on the cake:  the Aveda bath products.  My favorite by far and rarely seen in a hotel!  Rosemary Mint – the best!

The Bar

I did have a drink in the bar – but I did not take a picture.   It almost felt like someone outside the hotel managed it, as it was not on the same level of hipness as the rest of the property.

Not to worry though – you shouldn’t really be clubbing in a hotel bar in Berlin – which has some of the most exciting nightlife in the world!

My Verdict

The Hotel Indigo Ku'Damm:  Cool | Well Priced | Great Location | Fab Bathrooms!

I had a lot of fun staying at this property and look forward to coming back:  especially if I am in town for a conference!
