Le Ross, Le Blog - Safe as Houses

Last week I had the pleasure of staying at the latest outcrop of the Soho House group, Soho House Berlin. Speaking of houses - and this isn't a joke - has any one ever actually seen a house in Berlin? (Answers on a postcard please…) They really love their apartment blocks over there!

Located in the Mitte - Berlin's version of the East end - Soho House Berlin opened in May this year and despite its sprawling eight floors, the ‘house’ moniker couldn’t be more apt. The total lack of pretence, the incredibly helpful staff and the overall relaxed vibe ensures you feel like you’ve arrived home the moment you walk through the door.

The super king-size bed in our room was so huge, me and my gal didn’t spoon once! Not because we fell out or anything, we just couldn’t be bothered to make it all the way from port to starboard.

The size of the bed pretty much set the standard for the whole place - our ‘medium’ room was about the size of a suite in most hotels. You’d probably need a golf cart to traverse the extra-large bedrooms.

This was my first visit to Berlin and I was expecting to be awestruck. The architecture was definitely my favourite thing about the city and made a refreshing change from the old Europe we’re all so familiar with. Unfortunately, however, I didn’t discover the amazing concept stores and streets sprawling with ultra-stylish youngsters I had hoped for.

That said, it's good news for anyone who's rather not ‘sprechen sie deutsch’, everyone I met spoke better English than me.

In all, Berlin is great city to visit. It’s steeped in history, full of reasonably priced food and the currywurst is impeccable. Speaking of Currywurst, I'd recommend you pay the city's new museum dedicated entirely to the spicey snack a visit, it's the Berlin I was hoping for.
