Set on the banks of the River Spree, the Ameron Hotel Abion Spreebogen is a modern 4-star property to the west of Berlin city centre. It is just across the water from Tiergarten and Schloss Bellevue (the German president's residence). The area has the feel of a local neighbourhood, and is within walking distance of city-centre attractions like the Hamburger Bahnhof contemporary art gallery (25 minutes' walk). This old railway station is now an "Aladdin's cave of paintings, installations, sculptures and video art" (Lonely Planet).
The hotel is half an hour on foot from the Reichstag Building, and only a little further from the Brandenburg Gate. Arminiusmarkthalle, a 19th-century food hall that is 10 minutes' walk from the hotel, is also well worth a visit (open 12-10pm, Monday-Saturday). Turmstrasse U-Bahn station is five minutes' walk away, or you can walk 10 minutes to Berlin Bellevue S-Bahn station, across the River Spree.
There's a riverside terrace for afternoon drinks. The hotel has a steam room, a Finnish sauna and a 9th-floor gym. Wi-Fi is free.
