In Charlottenburg, half a block from great shopping along Ku’Damm
Hecker's Hotel is located in the eastern side of the elegant Charlottenburg neighborhood, a wealthy area full of intimate restaurants and great shopping. Kurfurstendamm (or Ku’Damm), located half a block from the hotel, is lined with upscale boutiques, designer stores, hotels, and elegant businesses. The subway is a couple of minutes’ walk away, as is hopping Savignyplatz, home to many great restaurants.
Hecker's is a quiet hotel with a new and upscale facade in the Charlottenburg neighborhood. But though the lobby is modern and the suites are chic, basic rooms have outdated decor, motel-quality bedspreads, and few amenities (just flat-screen TVs and modern safes). All public areas and bathrooms have been renovated, and individually decorated suites are gorgeous. An upgrade here gets not only additional space, but hardwood floors, small balconies, and interesting art. Perks include a lobby bar, attractive ground-floor restaurant, and a seasonal roof terrace. Not all of the 69 rooms and suites here meet the advertised four-star standard, but the location is convenient and Wi-Fi is free.
