Apartment hotels that allow Anmeldung in Berlin.

Urgently need to rent an apartment in Berlin with Anmeldung? You’re in luck! Here are 15 apartment hotels and temporary accommodations in Berlin that give you the document required to do Anmeldung in the capital city.

Are you moving to Berlin but have no idea how you’ll get ‘Anmeldung’ for registering your residence when it’s near impossible to rent an apartment?

Have no fear! We’re here to help. As fellow expats who made the move to Berlin in 2019, we know what you’re going through!

Renting apartments in Berlin is notoriously difficult. Not only for expats but for locals too. And the problem is a bit of a ‘chicken and egg situation’.

Your chance of renting an apartment in Berlin and getting Anmeldung is much higher when you’re already living in the city. But how can you live here if you can’t find a place to rent?!

This is one of the biggest dilemmas expats face moving to Berlin. But don’t worry, there’s an easy solution to this – staying at a temporary accommodation like an apartment hotel.

It’s more expensive compared to renting a long term apartment in Berlin, of course. But it’s a temporary solution that will allow you to get your foot in the door (literally!).

Plus, you won’t need to worry about submitting a long list of documents like SCHUFA, proof of income, work contract, filling out the ‘Mieterselbstauskunft’ (tenant self-disclosure form) in German, or worry about Berlin Apartment Scams!

Not all temporary accommodations like hostels, hotels, and AirBnb’s allow you to register their address and do Anmeldung though.

But don’t worry, we’ve put together a list of 15 apartment hotels that give you the document required for registering and doing Anmeldung in Berlin.

Why Is Anmeldung Important in Berlin?

If you’ve never lived in Germany before, you’re probably wondering what ‘Anmeldung’ is all about and why it’s important.

‘Anmeldung’ simply means ‘registration’ in German. So in the context of renting an apartment in Berlin (or anywhere else in Germany), ‘Anmeldung’ means the registration of your residential address.

In Germany, you need the permission of the landlord to be able to register his/her apartment as your residential address. That’s why some advertisements for apartments in Berlin will specify whether ‘Anmeldung’ is included or not.

‘Anmeldung’ may just be a piece of paper, but it’s super important since it proves that you live in Germany.

It’s therefore an essential document to have if you plan to open a German bank account, get a tax number, apply for jobs, or plan to register your own business in Germany.

Bonus Tip: The landlord will give you a document called a ‘Wohnungsgeberbestätigung’ (English for confirmation of residence) in order for you to do Anmeldung in Berlin.

Can I Do Anmeldung with A Hotel, Hostel, or AirBnb?

Short answer – yes! It is possible to get ‘Wohnungsgeberbestätigung’ from a hotel, hostel, or AirBnb to do Anmeldung in Berlin and the rest of Germany!

We didn’t know this when we first moved to Berlin. But now that we do, we thought we would share this tip to save future expats moving to Berlin some stress and heartache.
