If you want a slice of Berlin in the 30s, Ellington Hotel is the place to be. The big building has a true music soul, and when you talk with the friendly staff you get to know amusing facts, like that before being a hotel, it was an important bank, and even before that, it was a jazz club, hence the name. On the walls, impressive b/w pictures of all the musicians who performed in there. White is the predominant colour, for a very simple and effective modern style all around the place. The rooms are welcoming and functional, with open bathroom, minibar, safety, a comfy armchair. Close to the restaurant and bar there is the jazz radio station, live most of the hours! If this is not yet great enough, you can head downstairs to the cellar. There is still the authentic bank vault, turned in wine cellar and room for cool private events! But it gets better: there are a lovely beach inspired summer garden and a good-sized gym. The hotels is very close to KaDeWe, the luxury shopping department, and few steps away from the lively shopping areas of former West Berlin, Zoo and Ku’damm. Ellington Hotel literally sounds good as the notes that come out of it.

If you ever wanted to know about the music history of Berlin, this the place to go. Jazz-themed, the hotel is located in the former Berlin Theater, the 20s and 30s jazz hub of Berlin, where parties went down and legends like Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, and Duke Ellington played. The hotel has maintained as much of the history as it could, but the rooms are in a very modern style, which I thought conflicted with the general theme. The restaurant is delightful, organic and vegan-friendly, and the service is attentive but relaxed. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to have an interesting Berlin experience.

Elegantly but simply decorated, the Ellington is one of those timeless hotels that feels like it could exist in any time period -- minus the anachronistic hi-speed wi-fi and modern conference rooms throughout the building. The service is friendly from the moment you walk through the door. There were several sunlit spots for eating and drinking, from the partially outside Sommergarten, the breakfast room, the wine shelf laced Restaurant Duke and, this being Germany, the special Smokers Lounge and Bar. Located in walking distance to the famous Ku'damm and a plethora of shops, I found the price for the grandiose comfort the Ellington offers, including spacious yet cozy rooms, to be very reasonable.

Hotel is very modern, clean and staff are friendly. The rooms have a retro design and beds are very comfortable. Great location, very near to both U Bahn and S Bahn, about 5 to10 mins walk. The price is not bad, you can get it for around $130 to 150 range most of the time. Compared to other 4 star places around in Berlin, I would definitely choose this hotel to stay again.
