The Hoxton has arrived in Berlin, throwing open the doors to its Charlottenburg hotel, whose interiors pay homage to the architectural fabric of the storied neighbourhood.
The Hoxton Charlottenburg is the latest addition to the hotel chain’s portfolio, with spots already open in Los Angeles, Rome and London, and is a stone’s throw from Berlin’s renowned shopping avenue Ku’damm. AIME Studios (Ennismore’s in-house design wing) crafted the hotel’s interiors, weaving together a compelling mix of Art Nouveau and Brutalism – which the designers have nicknamed ‘Rough Nouveau’.
According to AIME, the hotel celebrates ‘West Berlin’s rich architectural history’ and ‘classic 1920s opulence intertwined with Brutalism’ through a heady mix of textures, patterns, fabrics and design styles.
This kicks off in the lobby, where blue-green tones and referential Bauhaus artworks set the tone. Islands of curved Art Nouveau-style sofas and armchairs cluster beneath Murano chandeliers for meetings and coworking, while a floor-to-ceiling Delft-inspired fireplace offers a cosy spot for the evenings.
The Hoxton Charlottenberg’s 234 bedrooms – which start from around €232 a night – blend vintage and contemporary furniture, embracing clashing carpet and upholstery patterns. Scalloped headboards, metal light fittings, and hand-painted murals help transport guests to the Art Nouveau era.
In addition to private spaces, The Hoxton Charlottenburg has an outdoor terrace, a teahouse serving Indian-inspired pastries, and a tandoor restaurant, keeping patrons fed and watered throughout the day.
It also has The Apartment – a hybrid meeting and event space set within the eaves of the building, inspired by a 1920s parlour. Imagined as the salon of legendary German expressionist choreographer Mary Wigman, the rooms have soft, muted tones, vintage lighting and chintzy touches. The space is available to hire for events, receptions and parties.
