Drift is located in one of Berlin’s most vibrant districts: Schöneberg. The area is known for its progressive subcultures, the LGBTQ+ bars, parades and events that continue throughout the summer. From art galleries and Christopher Street Day to Europe’s largest Lesbian and Gay festival that takes place each year in October, the neighbourhood is filled with something for everyone and showcases Berlin’s diverse cultural events right at Drift’s door!

Located next door to the rainbow metro station at Nollendorfplatz, Drift is perfectly connected to the entire city. With numerous metros, guests can travel quickly across the city. Go for a swim at lake Krumme Lanke with the U3 line, or take the U2 to the other side of Berlin to show off your talents with Sunday karaoke at Mauerpark.

If our guests are more interested in exploring the nearby area, Schöneberg offers a wide selection of shopping options, some of the best restaurants and bars the city has to offer, and historical tours of buildings that survived both the First and Second World Wars. Drift provides you with everything you need, whether you’re here for business, shopping, leisure, or exploring the city’s culture. With its zen atmosphere and its incredible location, Drift lets you catch your breath—or takes it away.

Drift embraces a complete digital guest journey, managed without physical human contact and reception on site. Guests are given a digital key for self-check-in and check-out. Our guest experience team is available 24/7, enabling full support via your smartphone.

With a modern, minimalist flair, Drift’s architecture and atmosphere pay homage to the land’s previous owners: the Japanese embassy in Berlin. Light and fun, made possible by Drift’s countless full-length windows, add to the simplicity of the building’s design, leaving our guests with an effortless, relaxed experience.

Like all COSI locations, we designed Drift with intention and care. From the architecture to the colours and furniture, every aspect is intended to make our guests feel relaxed and unburdened. In the whirlwind of travel, Drift is your calm in the eye of the storm, your space to catch your breath as you move through an active life. Drift’s windows offer a stunning chance to watch the sunrise over the Berlin skyline from the upper rooms.

Drift’s rooms have a minimalist flair that brings light and vibrance into the rooms. With windows facing the beautiful nightlife of the city and the light of the shops below, it’s like sleeping in a wonderland of colours.

At COSI, we believe in uniting the comfort of a private home and the delight of a boutique experience. The multi-purpose spaces are suited for both leisure and business travellers who wish to enjoy Berlin at their own pace and people looking for a temporary residence for extended stays. Thanks to our unique business model and technology initiatives, we are democratising the boutique experience at an affordable price point. 

We cannot wait to welcome you into our new residence in the heart of Berlin’s Schöneberg district!
