Berlin is an artist’s dream city with creativity busting around every corner. Ever since the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, the city has transformed itself into a place of artistic expression. There was a massive movement for urban art that attracted artists and designers from around the world, and the architects contracted to reshape the city were encouraged to think beyond the norms of traditional designs. The result of this transformation is part of the attraction to visit Berlin, and as a visitor to this great European capital, it’s fitting to start your vacation in one of these five trendy hotels.
