Hüttenpalast owners Silke Lorenz and Sarah Vollmer have turned a hall that was part of a former vacuum cleaner factory into a hotel space and created guest rooms from wooden huts and old campers. Vollmer said they opened the hotel originally after wanting to find accomodation for their frequent personal guests, and decided on the old campers as a way to effectively use the former factory space. Hüttenpalast is among a string of hotels in Berlin that offer visitors alternative yet charming accommodation.
