Gorki Apartments are centrally located in Berlin’s trendy Mitte district, surrounded by numerous bars, cafés, galleries and shops. The Weinbergsweg, where Gorki is located, is a real funky street with plenty of young people dining or lining the terraces of various restaurants. From the first moment you step into Gorki Apartments, you instantly know you’re going to be in for a real funky stay. The beautiful hallway with chandelier leads you through to the inner courtyard where at the end of it, you find the reception.
Gorki Apartments has 34 individually designed apartments and two expansive penthouses. The Gorki is a unique place that reflects the character of Berlin. Instead of standing out, the Gorki blends into the neighbourhood, housed within an historic residential building built in the early 1900s. It is discreet, yet personal. Subtle, yet luxurious.
I stayed in the apartment with the name Schultz. It was a category 2A apartment with a size of about 50m2. It was located on the 2nd floor overlooking the inner courtyard, so I was guaranteed a quiet stay. The entry area of the apartment had a beautiful blue built in wardrobe which provided me with plenty of storage for my stay
The apartment has two areas, the bathroom area and the bedroom / kitchen area. The apartment is in immaculate state and the decor and attention to detail is lovely. The kitchen is a fully functional kitchen so if you decide to cook you can, but who would when you have plenty of nice restaurants around the corner? I did have breakfast in the kitchen, there are so many lovely bakeries and the kitchen had a small table for two to enjoy good German nutty bread. Like in almost any hotel now, there was a Nespresso coffee maker and a tea kettle.
The lights and the additional interior furniture just completed this luxury apartment atmosphere. The double bed was huge in size and had plenty of pillows to choose from, for me to have a good night’s sleep.
My highlight had to be the bathroom, a gorgeous and perfect place to chill. I just love free standing baths, and I loved the size of the bathroom where the bath was located. The Victorian style tub with its massive cast iron claws, the black and white tiling and the chandelier at the ceiling just made this room. During my one night stay, I topped up the bath twice, to just soak it all up with a nice glass of German Sekt. The additional bathroom products made this whole bathroom experience even more exciting. Oh, and for those of you that want showers, there was a lovely shower too.
Berlin is a fantastic dynamic city and where the Gorki Apartments are located, you have access to some great restaurants and local culture at night. The atmosphere in the local Kiez (German for neighbourhood) is fabulous and it gives you a real insight in to what the locals experience. You are also only a two-minute walk away from the Roshenthaler Platz U-Bahn station, which gets you to Alexander Platz in two stops. If you are needing a place and want something bigger than the usual hotel room, than Gorki apartments is a must stay for sure. It is the perfect place for both business people or anyone needing a romantic weekend away. All apartments at Gorki are super individual in their designs and you will not be disappointed.
