Best places to stay:

Last updated: 18 January, 2023

This imposing building was once an office of the secret police. Today, it’s a luxury hotel with 73 beautifully-appointed rooms & suites, flooded with natural light. Even the most basic have queen beds and kitchens with microwaves, fridges, dishwashers and coffeemakers. There are also several separate, self-contained, multi-room apartments you can book close by through the hotel – ideal for groups and family stays.

There’s a good in-house restaurant (operated by a third party), and guests may use the fitness centre at EVO Fitness, opposite the hotel.

Lux sits in the perfect location for Mitte’s shopping and Prenzlauer Berg’s cool bars. It’s a good base for sightseeing and first visits – a 15-minute walk from Museum Island; a 3-minute walk from Alexanderplatz station.

Surrounding area

Lux 11 lies on the cusp of two worlds. While the streets behind are studded with historic apartment blocks and townhouses (mostly careful reconstructions), the front door points to Karl Marx Allee, the Communist-era boulevard.

Tourists descend on the area year-round but noise is rarely an issue. The Volksbuhne Theater is just up the road, and there are a dozen bars and cafés within a minute’s walk.
