Hüttenpalast, Berlin


A creative new hotel concept in Berlin, Hüttenpalast (translated as Hut Palace) offers an eclectic mix of renovated caravans and camping huts instead of conventional guestrooms.

Set up by former event planner Silke Lorenzen and designer and chef Sarah Vollmer, the budget accommodation aims to retain the community-spirited atmosphere of a campsite, despite the fact that the rooms are located in the large, open space of a former vacuum-cleaning factory.

Starting at €30 a night, Hütten Palast is yet another example of innovative accommodation targeted at those seeking a unique experience on a tight budget (see Haute Hostels). Lorenzen and Vollmer are also currently working up plans for more upscale variations on the theme, including six en-suite rooms nestled in a separate part of the factory.
