Hotel Olympic, Hans-Sachs-Strasse 4, 089-231890, www.hotel-olympic.de This former private villa, located in Glockenbachviertel, is small (55 rooms), discreet and arty without being ostentatious. The high-ceilinged lobby is fin-de-siècle haute bourgeoisie, but the rooms are modern and minimalist, with original artworks scattered throughout. Ask for a courtyard room - they're quieter. Doubles start at $218.
