Hotel am Steinplatz has an eventful history:

It was used as a stately home, grand hotel, officer's mess, artists' bar and retirement home. The architectural gem of Art Nouveau has been shining in new splendour since 1913, enriching West Berlin with a hotel in a class of its own.




Max Zellermayer first opened Hotel am Steinplatz as a luxury hotel in 1913, and the hotel soon took its place in Berlin's cultural timeline. After the October Revolution, many Russian aristocrats and intellectuals occupied the stately suites, while the hotel became a meeting point for prominent Berliners and travellers such as Vladimir Nabokov and Zarah Leander. During the Second World War, it was business as usual at the hotel, albeit in an improvised fashion – complete with tomato patches on the roof and a herd of goats in the courtyard.




More than 100 years after its completion, the Art Nouveau building, which was originally designed by August Endell, architect of Berlin's celebrated Hackesche Höfe complex, continues to captivate passers-by with its striking olive-green facade. In addition to meticulous restoration work, the architects incorporated new elements such as the sweeping ornamentation on the entrance canopy. They drew inspiration from the wealth of shapes and patterns found in nature. If you look closely, you will discover shell, fern and bat motifs throughout the hotel.




Max Zellermayer founded Hotel Steinplatz in 1913. Max Zellermayer always had a very keen business sense, speculated on the stock market and ran a private bank in addition to Hotel Steinplatz.

After his death, his wife Erna and her children took over the management of the hotel. It is also thanks to the influence of his son Heinz that the curfew in Berlin was abolished in 1949. The true grand dame of the hotel is daughter Ilse, who upuntil her passing in 2020, liked to visit the hotel time and again.



In the heart of Charlottenburg - surrounded by small boutiques, cosy cafes and restaurants.
Art lovers can look forward to exhibitions of contemporary photography in the C/O Gallery and the Helmut Newton Foundation. The department stores KaDeWe and Bikini Berlin are just a few minutes’ walk from the hotel and invite for a relaxed window shopping walk.
