Ellington Hotel Berlin

Rated 8.4 in 2006 reviews. 285 rooms.


The ELLINGTON HOTEL BERLIN began 1928-31 as "Haus Nürnberg" under the influence of the innovative buildings of the Berlin architect Erich Mendelsohn. The architectural treasure of Berlin shows probably the longest, most obvious and one of the finest facades in Berlin.

Already when entering the hotel the charm of the late twenties and early thirties is visible, which was maintained even in the stairwells and some premises.

The Ellington Hotel Berlin was already a stage for great personalities. So Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald and Duke Ellington played in the legendary "bath tub". David Bowie, Lou Reed and Romy Haag celebrated in the no less legendary "Jungle".

The hotel has remained true to jazz this day. Jazz Radio 106.8 is broadcast daily from the glass studio of the DUKE Lounge.

This 4-star design hotel offers modern rooms and free use of the gym. It is a 2-minute walk from Berlin’s Kurfürstendamm shopping street and the KaDeWe department store.

Dating from the 1920s, the Hotel Ellington provides modern, air-conditioned rooms with a minibar, and TV. Each room includes an elegant, open-plan bathroom with shower. WiFi is provided free of charge in all areas.

A rich breakfast buffet is served each morning. The stylish Duke restaurant with summer terrace offers a range of dishes and guests can relax in the lounge bar or conservatory with a glass of wine.

The Ellington’s spacious, modern gym is located in the basement. Massages and training sessions are also available. Guests also benefit from a free late check-out on Sundays.

Wittenbergplatz Underground Station is just a 5-minute walk away. The famous Europa Centre is within 400 metres.
