In the southern part of Friedrichshain, an eastern neighborhood adjacent to Mitte
Friedrichshain, a former industrial area, is now an up-and-coming neighborhood that's popular among young people. It's known as one of the hippest areas in eastern Berlin, with designer boutiques and media companies (including MTV's Central European office) setting up shop. There are also plenty of bars, restaurants, and clubs.
The nhow Berlin is an offbeat, creative hotel overlooking the River Spree. This futuristic property has a music theme and offers rare amenities like Gibson guitar room service and two recording studios on-site. Bright colors, psychedelic patterns, and funky-shaped furniture have high visual impact in the lobby, bar, and restaurant. The wild decor is somewhat muted in the rooms, though there's still plenty of pink, and quirky furniture. Rooms are equipped with iPod docks, TVs embedded in mirrors, and electric kettles. A modern fitness center has Precor equipment and a sauna. While there is a pesky fee for Wi-Fi, this innovative hotel offers 24-hour room service and a hip bar and restaurant.
