The Lovis Restaurant can be hired for private functions.
Former Charlottenburg women's prison in a historic 19th century clinker brick building. Restored with great care over a period of years by the Grüntuch Ernst architectural firm and converted into a modern design hotel, the restoration won the German Sustainability Award for Architecture 2022. In particular, the function of the rooms was changed - from isolated prison cells to places of encounter, so the prison wing became a light-flooded atrium, cell windows became large openings, the fabric of the listed building was carefully protected, the former castle courtyard is now the Lovis restaurant, there is a pop-up art gallery in the hotel
The 44 rooms in the former cells have been refurbished in a minimalist chic style. Each room is unique, but they all share the same serene aesthetic, light colours and high quality materials such as COCO-MAT beds, luxurious bathrooms and leaves pressed into frames to give the rooms a natural aesthetic
The hotel itself is set in a quiet courtyard with a large garden, but once you step outside the large gate, you are on Berlin's Kantstraße in the Charlottenburg district, right next to the famous Kurfürstendamm, well connected to public transport, the street is particularly well known for its selection of Asian restaurants, and the surrounding area is full of boutiques, bars and restaurants
