The Hotel Zoo Berlin, set in a historical Jugendstil building and a hotel since 1911, is located on the Kurfürstendamm shopping boulevard with several theatres, restaurants, and museums in the immediate vicinity. The nearest airport is Berlin-Tegel (TXL), nine kilometres away, around 20 minutes by car.
Through the wall-to-wall windows of the first floor G-Lounge, guests can watch shoppers on the Kurfürstendamm below. The G-Lounge is open 24 hours and serves cocktails and snacks to guests reclining on leather armchairs and sofas. The lounge is filled with ambient music and guests can use wireless Internet access to plan a day's sightseeing (surcharge). The hotel has three conference rooms and a large banquet room which can be used for a range of events. The lobby provides a good meeting point, and a place to relax on the suede chairs and sofa browsing the complimentary newspapers.
Breakfast (surcharge) is served in the modern dining room, which is decorated in crisp white with sleek, high-backed dark wooden chairs, and colourful movie prints adorning the walls in recognition of the Hotel Zoo's history as official hotel of the Berlin Film Festival in the 1950s.
Berlin's central park, the Tiergarten, is located 700 metres from the hotel. From the Tiergarten, joggers and walkers can follow the Spree Canal which leads towards the Chancellery, Reichstag, and the Brandenburg Gate.
The Hotel Zoo has 136 rooms spread over six floors, some with views of the inner courtyard and others with views of the Kurfürstendamm. Guestrooms have carpeted floors, full-length mirrors, laptop-compatible safes, satellite television, and minibars.
