The hotel is situated in the new centre of Berlin, a place with an intriguing past: The Potsdamer Platz.
Before the Second World War the public square was a red light district of Berlin with cabarets, bars and hotels. One of the most popular and liveliest public squares in Europe. After the war the square lay in ruins and became the region where three sectors; the Soviet, British and American met. It only took one line drawn into concrete, in the August of 1948 and the first actual “border” was created between East and West.
