The moment I walked into Hotel Artist Riverside, I was greeted by warm, smiling service. Situated on the Spree, the hotel interior is decorated with ornate, borderline-gaudy gold decor, a theme that stretches into the spacious rooms with water beds. There's also a soothing spa with massages and a variety of hot tubs, including one where guests are completely encased in a giant shell. For all the amenities and the central and scenic location, I didn't find the price so bad -- unless you're stuck in one of the rooms facing the noisy street. I also liked the adjacent Austrian-style restaurant that serves hearty portions. The hotel was a bit too fancy for me personally, but I'd recommend it for those looking to live it up in an extravagant atmosphere for a couple of days.

The hotel's relaxation and spa amenities are well-lauded, but I found the decor to be too tacky to relax in. You walk in, and it's like the Vegas worst nightmare, and the desk service isn't always welcoming. However, the location is excellent, right on the river Spree and just across the river from the Friedrichstrasse transit hub. If you don't mind the eyesore decor, it's a great place to go in Berlin for relaxation and sauna madness, and to still be centrally located to see the sights.

This is one of the most relaxing hotels I've ever seen. It might be on Friedrichstrasse but it's so peaceful and serene. There are however some rooms facing the street so make sure you don't book one of them or you'll get disturbed by the traffic.

The decoration inside can lean towards over the tip tacky, but when you're chilling in one of their whirlpools or jacuzzi's, or even getting an amazing Hamam bath treatment, it somehow pulls itself together and feels cozy and oriental. Anyway, it all adds to the relaxation factor which I think is the main aspect of Hotel Artist Riverside. Rooms come with a choice of waterbeds, whirlpools or great golden bath tubs and other hotel amenities include a big sauna, manicures and pedicures, bath treatments and massages. If you don't appreciate the gaudy nature of the decor, the experience you can have here more than makes up for it. Indeed, their candlelit dinner on a riverside balcony is a lovely way to spend an evening.

Location-wise this hotel is perfect, a few minutes away from the metro and the shopping district of the long Friedrichstrasse. Museum Island is really close by too, the Pergamon museum is my pick of the bunch there with interesting and spectacular pieces inside.

Like a long hot bath, this hotel is perfectly lovely and makes you want to come back as often as you can.


The hotel is located, as the name suggests, at the side of the river Spree just a short walk from a tram stop in a very lively area. Rooms are just marvelous, some come with their own jaccuzi and a wonderful balcony view of the boats floating down the river. The highlight in this hotel is the panorama sauna. You should definitely visit it if you are staying there, it's worth every penny.

I would recommend Artist Riverside time and time again.
