The city celebrates multiculturalism with the annual Carnival of Cultures (Karneval der Kulturen or KDK in short) in May, making it an ideal time to visit Berlin.

Summer (June to August) is warm with average high temperatures of 23°C (73°F), although the built-up areas can get warmer due to the heat stored in buildings and pavement. The city has a string of festivals during this time including Classic Open Air, Berlin Pride, Beer Fest (Berliner Bierfestival) and Music Fest (Musikfest).

Autumn (September to November) starts off warm but the cool autumnal air soon ushering in and lowering the temperatures to an average high of 13°C (55°F) by October. This is a cheaper time to visit Berlin.

Winter (December to February) is mild with average high temperatures of 3°C (37°F), but winds from the east may lead to cold spells. The city knows how to party and throws one of the biggest New Year's Eve celebrations in Europe at the iconic Brandenburg Gate. Wrap up warm and book your hotel in advance if you're visiting.

Das Stue

Billed as Berlin's first luxury boutique hotel, the none-more-cool Das Stue sits on the southwestern fringe of the Tiergarten park. It's full of grand design touches, while the rooms themselves are modern with hardwood floors. The hotel also plays home to a spa and, in Cinco by Paco Pérez, a Michelin-starred restaurant.

Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin

Hotel Adlon Kempinski is one of Berlin's great historical hotels, and a magnet over the decades for the rich and famous (including Michael Jackson, who notoriously dangled his baby over one of the balconies in 2002). It's located close to the Brandenburg Gate, and retains the luxurious feel of Europe's golden age.

Soho House Berlin

Part of the Soho House empire, this private club and boutique hotel is based in Mitte, east Berlin's achingly hip heart. The 40 bedrooms vary enormously in price and layout, but all include vintage furniture and quirky features such as record players. Bring your swimmers for the glamorous rooftop pool.

Honigmond Berlin-Mitte

This gem of a hotel is a real find - the building's exterior doesn't suggest its gorgeous combination of period features and swish modernity. The rooms have antiques scattered throughout, and the breakfast is excellent. There's a second property too on a nearby street, in much the same style.

Ritz-Carlton Berlin

Expect the full whistles and bells of an international five-star chain hotel at this sumptuous 300-room property on Potsdamer Platz. Notable features include four restaurants and bars, among them the Tea Lounge, known for its ceremonial afternoon teas. Underground parking is another perk.

Ostel

The prices vary enormously here at this retro showcase for the garish/fabulous interior design of the former East Germany. Part hotel and part museum, this is definitely one of Berlin's more idiosyncratic places to stay; prepare for lots of brown and orange. It's also a stone's throw from techno temple Berghain and the adjacent attractions of hipster Friedrichshain.
