About the Rooms

Once you open your cell door, you will forget that this was once a prison. You will find yourself in a restful room with lots of light and quality natural materials. You'll sleep on a comfortable Coco-mat mattress, and upon rising, you'll enjoy an invigorating rain shower.

Our favourite room

The Classic Extended is our favourite room because of its space and large windows overlooking the courtyard garden. Some can accommodate three people. Caractère does not offer the basic Cosy rooms because they are too small.

Enjoy a refreshing swim

On the rooftop terrace you'll find a ten-meter-long outdoor swimming pool. The pool is not heated. In winter, it serves as an "ice bath" to plunge into after the sauna.

Work out and wind down

Unwind in the free sauna or work out in the hotel's fitness centre. You can also opt for a beneficial massage. There is also a billiards room and library.


Children of all ages are welcome here.

Caractère review

Hotel Wilmina is a hidden gem and an oasis of calm in the cosmopolitan city of Berlin. With its light tones, roomy feel and sophisticated cuisine, this hotel strays far from its prison past. Some elements have been preserved and blended in beautifully. The outdoor pool, green courtyards and pleasant lounge with fireplace offer relaxation after exploring the lively city centre.
