The Zoo heritage
Zoo Berlin is an upscale and charming design hotel on Berlin’s shopping street, Ku’damm. The building which was founded in 1891 used to be a private residence until it was turned into a hotel in 1911. For more than a century, this place was listed as one of the most lavish resorts of West Berlin.
In the 1950s, it served as the VIP hotel for the Berlin International Film Festival. They had A-listers like Grace Kelly and Sophia Loren visiting. It took two devoted Hollywood designers, Dayna Lee and Ted Berner, to take over and reinterpret the hotel’s glamorous legacy.
While entering the hotel lobby you’ll see a sophisticated high-ceilinged open space decorated with leather Chesterfield and velvet seats. Which leads you to the 114 rooms and suites with each an authentic art deco interior design.
