The Weinmeister Hotel, when set up in 2010, did not prefer to offer standard rooms to guests, this hotel, located in Berlin-Mitte, has designed private rooms with the aim of providing different experiences to their guests. They are walking on a different line with the design rooms they called Signature Rooms. The Weinmeister Hotel is located in a 5-minute walk from the famous Alexanderplatz square and the television tower and awaits its guests with its rooftop jacuzzi, lobby bar, and meeting rooms. In order to learn more about their concept, I asked Tamara Formoso, Sales & Marketing Director at The Weinmeister Hotel.

Tamara, could you tell us about The Weinmeister Hotel and the general concept?

The Weinmeister Hotel is art, culture, design, fashion, etc. Basically, it is a microworld directly connected to the city of Berlin.

Even the smallest detail of our hotel tries to connect with "what is Berlin". As an example, our door, a clear sign of our identity, only those who know The Weinmeister know where our entrance is.

The Weinmeister Hotel is not a place that offers only standard rooms. Could you tell us about your exclusive rooms? What was the inspiration?

The Weinmeister is directed towards exclusivity, that means that each experience is different and that is why we have our Signature Rooms. The idea as I explained before is to connect Berlin with the hotel and Signature rooms offer that exclusive design by its creator.

Therefore, it is not the same as sleep in a Large Room as in a Signature Room, because what we sell is an experience. For example, our Signature "Wacken", lives the festival between four walls.

What kind of different experiences could your guests experience at your hotel?

The concept of The Weinmeister offers that "everything is possible", our guests can relax in their rooms where the bed is the key point or live the experience of a Signature Room, in our Rooftop they can relax with a delicious Homemade cocktail and enjoy our Jacuzzi with one of the best views of Berlin or rent it for a private party.

In general, we offer the experiences that our clients wish.

Of course, through our website, the price is always cheaper than in the different booking portals. We offer Corporate Sales Rates to our clients and companies, that means they can have the same price per room for the whole year even if the demand is high, among many other offers. For this, we have a department that takes care of this: sales@chambers-hotels.com

What is the best season for travelers who want to visit Berlin? What is the reason?

It depends on the expectations of the traveler, my personal recommendation is in summer (June - July - August). Why? Because although in summer most people seek sun and beach the city of Berlin offers incredible possibilities, for example, the pools in the river Spree, beautiful lakes and a contact with nature even if we are in a big city. The nightlife is fantastic, the people are on the street, all the rooftops are open and it is the best way to really live what Berlin is.

On the other hand December, January, and February, the winter season would be another advisable time to come. Although it is cold the city is beautiful at that time. At the end of the year festivities, the fireworks illuminate all Berlin, the cultural offer is enormous and "there is always something to do", it is the best moment to experience the nightlife of this city.

How could you describe Berlin in a sentence?

You will laugh … “You love it or you hate it, there is no middle ground”

Thank you Tamara.
