The name of the hotel located between Oranienburger Straße and Bode-Museum is no coincidence: The post office’s branch responsible for telegraphy was formerly in this building built between 1910 and 1916 – whereby: not just any branch but the main one and with that Berlin’s communicative junction.
After thorough renovation of the former government entity, the new host opened its doors in November 2022. The atmosphere in the house is lively and – not surprising considering the history – communicative. Instead of in a classic lobby, guests are greeted in an openly designed room with plants and cozy benches. The original letter shoot is also located here and reminds of the old telegraphy branch.
Further, original building elements such as historic columns, ceilings and raw brick walls were integrated into the modern interior design of the rooms and maisonettes that are between 21 and 140 square meters large. Overall, the interior was inspired by the Berlin of the 1920s as well as the city’ s current lifestyle – a casually elegant style that also marks the hotel’s bar-restaurant “Root”.
From a communicative to a social junction
