Gay Hotels in Berlin
There are just a handful of exclusively gay hotels in Berlin with a couple having closed over the past few years. The main ones to consider are Axel Hotel Berlin and TWO Hotel by Axel but more recently there have been some gay hostels set up if you are on a budget.
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.

During our time in Berlin, we stayed at and can recommend:
Hotel Indigo – Alexanderplatz
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.
Holiday Inn Berlin City Center East Prenzlauer Berg
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.
HENRI Hotel Berlin Kurfürstendamm
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).
