Angry that you can’t live out your Harry Palmer fantasy now that the Berlin Wall has come down? No problem – you can take part in your very own Funeral In Berlin by bookng into the Ostel Hotel.

The Ostel Hotel lets you party like it’s not quite 1989. Based in the Mitte district, the Ostel gives you a glimpse of the old east, with a stay in a room that’s fitted out with original GDR furniture and there’s a free city tour in a Trabant car thrown in. There’s even themed rooms, including the ‘holiday camp’ room, a pre-fabricated apartment or for real luxury, the Stasi suite.

But don’t worry – all the mattresses, bed linen and plumbing are completely modern. Rooms start from a very affordable 35 Euros.
