Our hotel recommendations for you
ARCOTEL John F.
Founded in 1989, the group now includes ten 4-star or 4-star Superior hotels in Austria and Germany – in Berlin, Hamburg, Linz, Stuttgart, Salzburg and Vienna. Since its creation, ARCOTEL has made the leap from a family-led business to a renowned 4-star group, which now ranks among the 50 biggest hotel groups in Germany.
Enjoy the breathtaking view of the historical and prominent buildings of Berlin, for example the Berlin cathedral. All 190 rooms and suites are appointed with pieces of furniture especially designed for the hotel. Together with the high quality materials, clear lines and tasteful designs one can experience comfortable design.
The ARCOTEL name has been a fixture on the hotel scene in Central Europe for 30 years. An explanation of its origin: ARCOTEL is a fusion of ARCus (Latin for “arch”) and (H)OTEL. The name was and to this day remains an expression of the guiding principle we have had from the beginning: to create a link, symbolised by the arch, between the guest and the host in a hotel where all travellers are welcome. It is with the deepest conviction that ARCOTEL Hotels offer “hospitality unlimited” – and have been for already 30 years!

MOTEL ONE BERLIN-SPITTELMARKT
Pretty stunning, huh? Our hotel in Berlin Mitte makes quite a visual impression before you even step inside. Set amid a series of so-called Plattenbauten, prefabricated apartment buildings typical for Berlin, the Motel One Berlin-Spittelmarkt is situated in a charming brick building on Leipziger Strasse.
Guests are greeted by a Litfasssäule as soon as they enter; these advertising columns were invented by the Berlin printer Ernst Litfass in 1854, and remain a local institution to this day. The reception features a stripped-back design, so as not to steal the spotlight from the bar across the way. Large hanging lights above the bar offer a hint of industrialisation, drawing on the exterior look of the hotel. Steel shelves, large sliding doors, industrial lamps and an unobstructed view of the ceiling technology, which has been painted black, further underscore this industrial style.
Artwork in a matching style also enjoys a place at the Spittelmarkt hotel; the lobby is home to pieces by artist Ines Kouidis. She assembles countless paper shreds from newspapers and glossy magazines to create portraits. Marlene Dietrich, John F. Kennedy and David Bowie are all honoured in our hotel – after all, they all had a special connection to Berlin.
In addition to our exceptional design, we offer comfortable rooms with cosy box spring beds in our affordable hotel, as well as an extensive breakfast buffet with regional and organic specialities – so you can enjoy a strong start to the day after a restful night’s sleep. Interested in a nightcap later? Our bar offers a broad selection of gins, and our guests have access to 24/7 free WiFi as well as our friendly staff.
Optimum price-performance ratio and a central location – even in Berlin, since our affordable design hotel is in Mitte, right next to the Spittelmarkt metro station between Potsdamer Platz and Alexanderplatz. The Spree River and Museum Island are also just a short walk away. The Nikolaiviertel is just across the water, on the eastern bank of the Spree, and one of Berlin’s oldest districts. Whether you’re a night owl or an early bird – Berlin will supply the entertainment, while we’ll provide you with the perfect accommodation. We look forward to welcoming you!
