Originally built in 1958 by renowned architects William Pereira and Charles Luckman, the hotel re-opened in 1978 as the InterContinental® Berlin, and with its distinctive chessboard façade it remains today one of the most famous and internationally renowned hotels in Berlin.

Perfectly situated in the embassy district between Kurfürstendamm and Potsdamer Platz, and with unrivalled world-class security, the InterContinental® Berlin is the focus of economic, political and cultural life.


Over the decades the building has had extensive renovations to ensure this listed landmark luxury hotel in Berlin is as relevant today as it was in 1958. From 2019 to 2023, a €64m investment ensured the InterContinental® Berlin stays at the forefront of design, user- friendliness and sustainability. The extensive refurbishment delivered a new flair whilst retaining the hotel’s original character and soul.

The Presidential Suite, equipped with bulletproof windows, doors and walls, was opened in 1998, welcoming the President of the United States, President Bill Clinton, as its first guest.

Comfort and security are also features of the 70 guest rooms and suites that comprise the exclusive Club InterContinental, delivering personalised service and privacy to all high-profile visitors.

Over the years, guests have included numerous statesmen and iconic figures, from Alfred Hitchcock, Michael Jackson and Tom Hanks, to Presidents George Bush and Joe Biden.
