Europe´s Capital of Cool

europec2b4s-capital-of-cool1 Ackselhaus Berlin, a boutique hotel in trendy Prenzlauer Berg where the rooms are just about as individual as you´ll find elswhere. Each of the hotel´s suites has a unique theme related to a country or a mood. I stayed in the multi-room Africa suite, where I was nearly spoiled to ruin by everything from the walk-in closet, atmospheric bathtub, iPod-compatible music systems and multiple flat screen televisions, among other amenities. Other suites include a China suite, a Safari suite and a Cairo suite, and each is designed to impress. Best of all, Ackselhaus Berlin offers all of the above and the swagger and luxe of a five-star hotel for under 200 EUR a night. A bargain and a treat-does it get any better? (Duane Wells 3)
