Pseudonym instead of a room number, a doorbell and mailbox for every apartment—these are just the first small details that set the Gorki Apartments apart from the crowd of hip hotels popping up in Berlin.
Built in a 19th-century residential building in Mitte, one of the Berlin’s hip-and-happening districts, this is a hotel with a difference—as it embraces the period apartment building heritage and makes it its own.
Keeping to its name and the original building purpose, Gorki offers not hotel rooms but whole apartments, for rent from one night to six months and more—in fact for as long as the guests wish.
The interiors are expertly designed with a distinct mix of classic design pieces with vintage ﬁnds from the local ﬂea markets. This results in a natural and homely luxury—a style created by a well-known Franco-German designer Sandra Pauquet, in collaboration with architect Kim Wang.
“In a sense it’s the most businesslike of hipster hotels — especially when you think about what a business hotel would mean to the new generation of wired creative workers. If you’re used to working from home, after all, then your hotel room must offer nothing less than all of home’s comforts. And a homey, vintage-inspired visual style certainly doesn’t hurt. It’s the sort of place you could imagine settling down for a while.” —Tablet Hotels
