Berlin’s inherent gay friendly nature means that no matter what hotel you stay at, you should be welcomed as a gay traveller.
However, like many cities around Europe there are also a few outright gay hotels in Berlin on offer.

Here are our top choices:
Gay Hotels in Berlin
Axel Hotel Berlin – Adults Only
This is probably one of the best known gay hotels in Berlin.
We stayed at the Axel Hotel Berlin, which is in the heart of the gay area of Berlin making it perfect for a night out and while it may advertise itself as hetero-friendly, is just mainly full of gay men.
We loved the sauna area, hot tub and roof top terrace are – perfect to hang out and meet other guests.
TWO Hotel Berlin by Axel – Adults Only
This gay hotel in Berlin is located at Bundesallee street, in the district of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf, that combines leisure, shopping and beyond good gastronomy.
The hotel is only few minutes away from the most famous shopping street Kurfürstendamm located on the famous gay area of Schöneberg, and it has 86 modern rooms with the latest technology
Toms is a gay hotel in the heart of the gay area of Berlin with artistically decorated rooms and free wifi throughout.
A bonus for this property is that hotel guests receive a special pass, offering discounts to many nearby gay saunas, nightclubs, shops and restaurants.
Its above Tom’s bar (cruising bar) so if you don’t want to walk far for a night out, this is a great option!
Established in 2009, the Gay Youth Hostel is a budget option aimed at young gay men (18 – 38) who want to stay in the heart of the gay area in Berlin.
They offer 2 person to 8 person male only dorms and most importantly have personal lockers which is a must for staying in dorms.

During our time in Berlin, we stayed at and can recommend:
Hotel Indigo is well located in Alexanderplatz. It is a modern and trendy hotel with cool décor in the rooms and balconies for some.
Here they have a gym and serve a really good breakfast to get you ready for the day.
Book your stay here.
The Holiday Inn really stood out for us. The room was very spacious, modern and comfy. It also served one of the best breakfasts we had during our stay in Berlin which we were very happy about.
It is a little bit further out, but there is a tram stop metres away from the entrance so you can be in Alexanderplatz within 10 minutes.
Book your stay here.
The Henri Hotel Berlin Kurfürstendamm was very unique. The building itself felt quite historical which gave it more character compared to some of the more modern hotels.
We would describe the room as boutique French chic style with a very comfy bed! The service here was great and we also enjoyed that they serve snacks from 7pm for €5 (we indulged in a cheese board).
In terms of location, this hotel is a 15-minute walk to the gay area of Berlin (Schöneberg).
