estled on the busy but quiet streets of Kanstrasse this Berlin Hotel is located near the scenic Savignyplatz. Even though it is not located in the thick of the Berlin Mitte, the hotel is comfortably situated near the rail, art galleries, restaurants, and the high-end shops of the Ku’Damm, all playing a part of the West Berlin charm. ey piece of it – not only the observer.
Sir Savigny may have been named after a fictional aristocrat, but if the character of the hotel is in any way a reflection of Sir Savigny himself
one would conclude he is of rebellious blood, with refined taste. The hotels’ lobby boasts a large collection of carefully curated art and nostalgia books, conveniently situated between two different lounge areas.
On the left a clean contemporary feel and to the right a midcentury modern nook with a fireplace. You won’t find your typical hotel reception at the Sir Savigny, instead, you are greeted by a host who will take care of your needs and show you to your room. After a brutal 20 hr. flight, I arrived at 7 am and the host was kind enough to sort my room out for an immediate and above normal check in which included a glass of champagne to help me unwind. Much needed!
Heading up to the room the leather cushioned walls of the elevator are marked with etched graffiti filled with names and I love you’s from guests past.
The rooms are filled with rich hues of slate, sage, blues and gold giving you a masculine touch with a lavish romantic feel. The rooms (and beds) are incredibly cozy with no shortage of attention to detail. Above the bed hangs a gorgeous crystal orb chandelier, and a large painting of sketched cows painted over old torn out literature books. The mini bar is set with delicate china tea cups and beautiful crystal drinking glasses adding a certain je ne sais quoi that you don’t typically find in other hotels.
Around the bend from Sir Savigny lies The Savignyplatz, a Green Idyll well-known shopping square off the Kurfürstendamm. This area known as Charlottsberg used to be the hip heart of West Berlin before the reunification. There is great shopping, local eateries and bars in this area like the Schwarzes Cafe which are open 24hrs. But if you don’t feel like venturing out The Butcher is located just around the corner from the hotel elevator. The bar keeps visitors satisfied with delicious choices of beers, burgers, and sandwiches while playing a chill playlist of throwbacks from vintage rock to old school hip-hop.
