In this beautiful historic building dating from 1913, which has been restored from 2014-2017 by its owner Dietrich von Boetticher, the legendary Oranienpalast Café, as it was known at the time, offered its guests not only great food, but also outstanding concerts.

Reviving this identity, the Orania.Berlin does not only feature the timeless beauty & contemporary luxury in 41 intimate rooms & spacious suites, but also a huge living room, restaurant with open kitchen & bar with open fire places centered around a concert stage with a Steinway D Piano for concerts performed by great artists living in Berlin. The grand yet intimate Literary Salon on the top floor offers breathtaking views of the skyline of Berlin and features a Steinway B Piano for concerts, an open fire place & bar with kitchen. The Salon can also be booked for exclusive dinners, events, meetings, book presentations and record releases.

The Interior Design embraces contradiction, understatement & complexity to create an open & relaxed atmosphere where local residents as well as traveling aesthetes & cultural cognoscenti from other parts of the world will feel equally welcome.

A unique mix of local craftsmanship, subtle oriental influences, casual elegance, furnishings designed by Antonio Citterio & Patricia Urquiola, warm lights from Enzo Catellani & precious natural materials from Europe, Africa, Asia & the Americas showcase a cosmopolitan creativity & nonconformist individuality, just like Kreuzberg itself.
