Within a stone’s throw of Berlin’s Kurfürstendamm shopping street, Provocateur entices guests with 58 elegantly outfitted guestrooms, an Indochine-Parisienne restaurant, and a classic cocktail bar that attracts the night owls of Berlin’s Charlottenburg neighborhood. The hotel, housed behind an Art Nouveau façade, is inspired by the 1920s, with twinkling chandeliers, velvet curtains, and a slightly seductive attitude.
MADE BY ORIGINALS
Micky Rosen and Alex Urseanu have been transforming the hospitality scene in their native Frankfurt for over a decade before turning their attentions to Berlin. Rosen is a noted gastronome and editor of the "Cool Restaurants Frankfurt” guide, and Urseanu is an entrepreneur with a retail chain in several German cities and with many years of experience in international hospitality. Under their Gekko Group, the entrepreneurs turn unloved spaces into local hotspots.
ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN
The 1911-built structure that houses Provocateur conforms to the Charlottenburg neighborhood’s prevailing Art Nouveau style, and was originally built as a residential building but was converted into a hotel after World War II. In 2014 and 2015, TSSB architekten ingenieure renovated the façade with the aim of restoring its original aesthetic, while the interiors also aim to invoke a 1920s atmosphere with parquet flooring, original stucco elements, and a refurbished elevator from the era. Velvets, marble, brass, and twinkling chandeliers also add a playful touch inside, as designed by stock-broker-turned-interior designer Saar Zafrir.
