... before we headed out for a 3 hour walking tour of Berlin, taking in the sights of Museum island, Berlin Cathedral, Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag, Holocaust Memorial, Hitler's Bunker and Checkpoint Charlie. Carlos, our half German - half Costa Rican tour guide, was fantastic as he gave us detailed overviews of all these iconic places in central Berlin. By the time the walking tour was complete, we'd developed some serious hunger so we grabbed a currywurst at the huge ...
... devastation that they caused... is that meant to be an apology maybe?! If so, perhaps thousands of slabs of concrete could have been used to build something a little more 'memorial' like.
Section of the Berlin Wall - I actually couldn't find any info on the name of this location but it seems to be off the beaten track and may have once functions as a mini garden gallery in the middle of a load of office blocks. Will have to look it up when i have more ...
For lunch stopped for Kebabs. A lot of Turks live here and when you combine their meat cooking skills with the German’s bread baking skills what you get is the best Kebab I have ever tasted – and only €3!

We started our second day in Berlin, we decided to explore the shops near our hotel and ended up spending the rest of the day there. We explored the Lego store and tried the famous German "wurst." We also brought couple dress shirts and then just went exploring the city center of Western Berlin. The next day, we got on a early flight to our next part of the trip, Zurich.

Historical Traveler Reviews Agon Franke Berlin
Just stayed at Franke for the second time and again it proved to be an excellent base from which to enjoy the city. The hotel is cheap and cheerful, the rooms are quite basic but are clean and the staff are friendly. Breakfast is very good, with a good selection of meats, cheese, fruit etc. Very welcome after a hard night in Berlin!
Quiet but convenient
If you want a hotel that is clean in a very quiet location, but still handy for the city then The Agon Franke is not a bad choice.
We paid EUR75.00 per room per night in Feb 2005, its a 5-10 min walk to the Ku'damm - so its pretty easy to get to anywhere in the city on either the U/S Bahn.
Its not a luxury hotel but you should get a peaceful nights sleep without having to dig too deep into your pocket.
Ideal if you want clean, quiet hotel in a decent location. I had a large room, hot shower (no bath), great breakfast, free newspaper and internet access. Very helpful staff, aand short walk to U-Bahn station(U7).
Don't book this hotel if you want a hotel restaurant, hotel bar, local night life etc.
Great Value,Good Hotel
Stayed here after finiding it on the net. Hotel very clean, staff very helpful and friendly. Rooms very clean and changed everyday.Breakfast was excellent with good and plentiful choice. Location is just off the main shopping street but in a quiet area. Would have no hesitation in staying there again.
Great Value and Convenient
Just returned from 4 nights here and enjoyed it - maybe the fixtures and fittings are a bit dated but it's clean and the beds are really clean and comfortable (individual duvets and MASSIVE feather pillows). The breakfast is a very comprehensive buffet with excellent service for the unending coffee flasks and scrambled eggs!
PC in the foyer for free Internet access - no bar but they'll sell you bottled beer for consumption in the room. We paid 75 euro for the room plus taxes plus breakfast for the two of us which we thought was excellent value. Our room had a spare bed in it so space was at a premium, but there was ample.
U-Bahn just up the road as is Kurfurstendamm; and S-bahn a bit further away. We did a 'Brewers Berlin' walk on the first day - started at 10:30 and finished at 18:30 - all for 10 Euro and a really great day - we'd come here again
Great value hotel
The Hotel Franke was convenient for commuting around the city - 7 mins walk to Charlottenburg Sbahn station which also has a direct link to Schoenberg airport. The room was clean with plenty of wardrobe space and the beds were very comfortable. The modern en suite bathroom was spotlessly clean. The breakfast was a well presented, fresh and substantial buffet. The staff were helpful and the hotel was superb value for money.
Great Little Find
We had 1 night in Berlin over the weekend of the 14-15th Aug 04.
We had an early flight from London and arrived at the hotel by 11am - check in wasn't until 2pm, however the staff at reception stored our luggage and checked us in early. The rooms were fine & quite spacious and the bathroom was extremely clean. It was a handy location - easy to catch the Metro to all the places you need to see in Berlin. Breakfast was very nice within quite a large dining room. The staff at the hotel were lovely and even offered to book us tours etc if we wanted them to.
We paid £48 for 1 night - I probably wouldn't of paid much more than this, but definately a hotel that I would stay at again.
If you do go to Berlin make sure you do one of the 'Berlin Walks' walking tours - fantastic tours with great guides that know the city backwards and at a bargain price of 12 Euro per person for approx 4 hours.
Perfect base for sightseeing
We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 day stay in Berlin Nov 25 - 27 and intend to go back to see more - probably in the spring/summer to see the Tiergarten, parks and palaces at their best.Hotel Franke is a 5 min. walk from Adenauer Platz underground station which linked easily to Zoo - centre of everything it seemed.Perfectly clean and adequate hotel, great buffet breakfast, attentive waiter, English speaking receptionists very helpful. Used by locals and tourists alike. No bath but great shower and comfy beds. What more could one want?
