A self-described ‘one-night-stand & second home’ , the Gorki Apartments in Mitte reside in a cinematic Berlin townhouse, renovated and restored to high level chicness. I landed in Berlin long after dark and checking in at the Gorki, walked through a stunning courtyard of cobblestones and exterior spiral staircases. Once inside my apartment, the door to my balcony opened on to a spectacular view of the Fernsehturm (TV tower) and let in the crisp autumn air. Quiet and peaceful with daring color schemes, it was the perfect place to arrive after a very long flight. I only wished I could stay at the Gorki for rest of the trip.
