France Comes to Berlin, and It Doesn't End in a Headbutt: The Hotel Concorde Berlin

February 27, 2012| By:Christopher Roney

It's long been said that in heaven the French are the cooks, and while Germany has its own national specialties, like the Currywurst that you simply have to try at Konnopke's Imbiss, you might find after a few days that you'll be lusting after the luxury of French delicacies.  And the Hotel Concorde Berlin certainly delivers on the French flair we've come to expect from all the Concorde Hotels.  La Faubourg is a modern take on the traditional brasserie and even offers al fresco dining on the terrace once the city warms in May. With a visible sightline to the famous Gedächtniskirche, elegant in its preserved, broken beauty, the Hotel Concorde is ideally located in Berlin's ritzier and more glamourous southwestern corner.  Just steps from the Kurfurstendamm, the main Allee that is home to much of the city's upscale shopping establishments, you can also sneak away into more secluded spots with the real personality that makes Berlin so special.  Check out the nearby A-Trane Jazz Club, a hole-in-the-wall joint that has supported the underground Jazz scene for two decades and has played home to some of the greats and up-and-coming stars, like Toumani Diabate and Matthew Shipp. 

The hotel itself has 311 rooms, including 44 suites, and each brings a unique take on its sleek, modern style.  The whole building was designed by German architect Jan Kleihus and built just in 2005, and his cutting-edge style is infused in the very foundations. The Hotel Concorde Berlin understands the contemporary demands of luxury, coming from a nation with a long history of defining the European standard, and transplanting that cultural expectation to Berlin has created the perfect fusion of the modern, bustling metropolis with the storied tradition of French dining and hospitality.  It's bucket list material for sure.
