Blue Haus

If on the off chance you happen to be travelling to Berlin in the near future and you want to stay at a great little B&B, take a look at Blue Home. When I was researching hotels for our trip to Berlin (check out the post here), I randomly tweeted asking for suggestions on where to stay and I quickly got a reply from a co-worker who recommended Blue Home. It’s amazing how connected everything is these days – you can get tips from anywhere – Facebook and Twitter to TripAdvisor and travel forums. I usually always read the reviews and ratings on TripAdvisor before booking, and luckily this one fit the bill.

Blue Home is an eclectic  boutique hotel owned by sister property, Ackselhaus. It’s located in Prenzlauer Berg, a borough in East Berlln, and is made up of a collection of themed flats. Our flat was mostly blue and white with tall ceilings, an adorable breakfast nook, a bed with a TV built into the frame, oversized turquoise lanterns and a mini balcony overlooking the street. Although we didn’t spend a lot of time there, staying in a flat (vs. a hotel room) made us feel a little more like locals which is nice for a long weekend. And did I mention the scrumptious breakfast spread? Each morning breakfast was served in a cosy room on the lower level. You could order cappuccinos and fluffy croissants or have a more healthy muesli and yogurt parfait...my kind of morning! And there was also a cool outside lounge area where you could relax over a drink watch the fish swim in the wading pool.

Definitely worth looking into if you’re making your way to Germany!
