SO/Berlin Das Stue is a luxury boutique hotel tucked in between Tiergarten and the zoo. This idyllic location is perfect for enjoying Berlin’s largest and busiest park as well as the Schöneberg gay area just south of it. The hotel also offers exclusive access to the Zoo through a private entrance, and you can even look into the ostrich and antelope enclosures while you sip your cocktail at the bar.
Hidden behind a grand stone facade, the hotel’s elegant and cutting-edge interior design is a reflection of Berlin’s avant-garde sense of style. The lobby and Stue Bar both blend classic elements such as marble and dark polished wood with modern, angular furniture, original artwork, and a sophisticated sense of fun. Nods to the zoo animals can be found everywhere, from the small rhino statues that inhabit the hotel to the crocodile head at the entrance.
The rooms are all decorated in a beautiful contemporary style which is half-industrial, half-snug, for an effect that is both imposing and intimate. Many of them offer beautiful views over Tiergarten and the zoo through floor-to-ceiling windows, and many also have a private balcony.
Das Stue has an artful signature culinary philosophy for the all-day dining restaurant at The Casual. It combines regional high-quality products, blended with simple but expressive modern dishes. The hotel bar, meanwhile, is themed around classic lounge-style dens and features a wide selection of whiskeys as well as an inventive cocktail menu.
Das Stue is located about 20 minutes from the Schwules Museum as well as low-key gay bars like HarDie’s Kneipe, Blue Boys, and K6 and is one of the most booked luxury gay hotels in Berlin.
