When you plan your vacation, you think about where you want to go, what you want to do and what you want to entertain your taste buds with.
But to really make it all extra special, an inspiring hotel experience is the way to go.
So we decided to give our Berlin trip some color in combination with a cozy home feeling and stayed at Capri by Fraser Berlin.

The luxury serviced apartments at Capri by Fraser Berlin will give you a very stylish first impression of this urban capital of Germany. You can feel right away that Fraser in Berlin is so much in tune with the modern city outside its doors.
In the lounge area, you get a mixture of influences from what feels like the old Berlin and also very latest style and design trends of the new Berlin.
The clean and stylish interior with colorful design elements is what first grabs the attention. That goes for the public areas as well as the rooms. All the rooms at the Capri by Fraser hotel are the studio apartment type accommodation.
These studio apartments are perfect for different types of travelers. They are big and bright, with generous bedroom and living areas with a sofa, that seems like the perfect seat for a German movie night.
Rooms are well equipped with a kitchen area. The kitchen area has a fridge, a microwave, even a stow, and the best part – a washing machine! This kind of accommodation offers the top-level convenience when traveling with kids.
You have a place where to cook your own food, make a tea or coffee with the kettle in your room, and even wash dirty clothes if needed. The comfort just like at your own home, just Berlin style.
Capri by Fraser Berlin is also recommended for those travelers who combine holidays with work on their laptops. Or those who come to Berlin for business. All the studios in Fraser are equipped with comfortable and modern work areas. The hotel lounge offers also a free use of a business center with large Apple computers and printers.
The feeling of being at home really improves the sleep quality. As I love staying in hotels in general, sleeping there is not a problem for me. But for those, who prefer sleeping at home in their own bed will likely sleep great at Fraser.
Our room had one of the walls entirely our of glass with a view to a large street. We couldn’t hear a single noise from the street, but the view was stunning. Especially early in the morning when you wake up facing the glass wall.
The first thing you see is the thousand red and yellow lights of the cars rushing through the busy morning traffic just as the sun rises to replace the nightly darkness. What a perfect view to wake up to!
Starting from the coffee, tea and the hot chocolate in your room and following with the on-site restaurant Kaffee Karamell menu, your taste buds will very be satisfied. One of our favorite parts of our stay at this hotel was the breakfast. It has actually been so in both Fraser locations we’ve stayed at so far, Budapest and now Berlin.
The breakfast offer at Kaffee Karamell is a wide-variety breakfast buffet. You’ll find the buffet awesome whether you like all the food in general, or prefer only vegetarian options. You can treat yourself with both sweet or salty breakfast. Oh, and the coffee is great!
Capri by Fraser Berlin has it’s own ways how to make you feel great. I’m talking about both – your body and mind. The dynamic big city vibes, stylish atmosphere and friendly customer service have you feeling at ease. As they have a gym in the hotel, you will have a chance to take care of your physical form.
How about a little morning workout to warm up your muscles for a long day out, exploring the best bits of Berlin? It felt awesome to be able to do that!
Located in quite a central part of Berlin 10 min walk away from the Alexander Platz, Capri by Fraser Berlin fits right into the urban environment that this city is. It’s an easy stroll away from many notable Berlin attractions like Checkpoint Charlie, Gendarmenmarkt, The Brandenburg Gate a little longer walk away and so much more.
If you are not the long-walker type, Fraser is easily connected to any other place in Berlin via nearby Spittelmarkt underground station almost next door or the large Alexanderplatz station.
Overall the hotel is located on a big street, but you really don’t feel it. Apart from well connecting with the transport of course. Once you enter the hotel building, you are away from all the street noise into your own stylish Berlin bubble.
The WoW factor
Our biggest WOW factor in Capri by Fraser Berlin was right when we first entered the reception/ lounge area. Inspired by the rich and joyful shades, it keeps things light and bright by balancing bold hues against a clean white palette.
Berlin is known for its dramatic history in the past and it’s stereotype-defying modern lifestyle nowadays. That’s perfectly reflecting in the Fraser lounge.
Part of the floor is made of glass, unfolding the view to some old ruins. Perhaps a piece of Berlin wall? How exciting! And then you look up again and see around you very modern design, creatively styled furniture and all you can do is go – Yeah, Berlin is awesome! And Capri by Fraser too!
