Relax and unwind in the hotel´s own wellness area with sauna, or use the fitness area for your daily exercise regime.

If you want to go for a long walk in the woods, you should definitely visit the large Tiergarten park. It is the verdant heart of Berlin and extends over 3 km. The park entrance is only about 16 minutes away on foot and you will have hundreds of acres of space in which to let your hair down.
The "most beautiful spot in Berlin", Gendarmenmarkt square, lies directly opposite the ARCOTEL John F. There are two major churches, the Deutsche Dom and the Französische Dom, as well as the famous Konzerthaus. There is nothing better than enjoying a coffee on-the-go and appreciating the beautiful 360° panoramic view of the imposing architecture.
