If the walls of the HOTEL ZOO BERLIN, Kurfuerstendamm 25, could speak, they would have great stories to tell. Narratives of a storied building that lived through many turbulent periods of Berlin’s history. Stories of the grand opening in 1911, of the glamorous parties celebrated by the Berlin bohemian society in the roaring 20ies, of uninhibited decadence, destruction and reconstruction – stories enduring all the way to the newest chapter in the history of these walls.
In November 2014 the new HOTEL ZOO BERLIN reopened after an extensive renovation lasting two years. With great passion for details, the American Interior Designer Dayna Lee transformed the glamour of days past into a modern New York townhouse. Each of the 144 rooms and suites have been individually designed so that they all have a unique charachter. The building was originally constructed in 1891, as a private residence by Alfred Messel, the architect of the Pergamon museum. The hotel is now owned by Manfred Weingartner and Robert Huebner.
