It’s been less than six weeks that I spent the night at the Hotel am Museum following my friend’s recommendation. We were lucky enough to get one of the few rooms, over the weekend at that, a fact that borders on miracle.

Despite it’s central location on Rothenbaumchaussee, the carefully decorated rooms are quiet nonetheless. The overall atmosphere is tasteful yet unpretentious. We left our everyday lives at the door and Ms Göckede, the owner, gave her all to spoil and pamper us from the first second on. Decades of practice! If you consider she was Jil Sander’s private chef.

As soon as we arrived I was in our room with a cup of tea and a deliciously light cookie in my hands. From cotton balls to bathrobe and slippers, everything was taken care of. The beds are unbelievably comfortable and the fact that the shower and sink are in the room, but the restroom is two more steps away across the hallway makes for an even better arrangement.


Before our arrival we were asked for special breakfast wishes, since it’s prepared right before the guests’ eyes every morning.  The ingredients were bought on a small market and are now laid out before me in shape of a steaming hot omelette. 

Several other breakfast dishes are prepped and arranged on a long table, and while Ms Göckede is working her magic in the kitchen the guests devour warm rolls, homemade jams, cold cuts, cheese and eggs in any form imaginable.

Any possible detail is perfectly set in this beautiful house. Everything went the way it should, and we were plain happy. The only thing you need to take care of yourself is an early reservation!
