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?

... of an unbiased reading of a country or city. Mashing our opinions together, we would possibly have a well-rounded opinion of Berlin. Though berlin is just a city, like any other city, made up of people like any other people. On another level, it is as un-romantic as that. The imaginations of the locals and the tourists create an image of a city, and perhaps the things that define that city then becomes a question of art imitating life, or life imitating ...
... 20kc equals €1. But we had to spend it now. Dan pushed the button for a coffee instead of chocolate so had to buy another one. The purchase of a couple of chocolate bars got rid of the rest of the money. We could have paid 50kc / €2.50 to go to the toilet. Very expensive. Back on our way for the 8hr train ride with ************e on the train. Countryside was lovely. I would love to get off and explore. It would be a delight to drive a ...
... of a spectrum of victims and perpetrators really is a testament to human nature. Some are more willing to risk their lives for a cause that they believe in, while others were more interested in their own survival. I think it is easy to look at these people today and blame them for failing to act, but it really is impossible to know how you or I would react if we were placed in that sort of situation. Furthermore, I think that most of ...
... had a great time. The crowd was a bit iffy but mostly good. Around 4 we left (none of us had phones so we weren't entirely sure) and eventually mad our way to the Berghain. The building was huge and tucked away in some tiny street. There were about five bouncers but the only one who mattered was Sven, this long haired pierced guy sitting down inside the door who all the bouncers looked to for approval. As we ...
... and it now stopped again. Our ever helpful commentary pointed out that the bus would stop for the Cecilienhof shortly, which was good. And then the bus drove on and on and on, and it dawned on us that we had missed the Cecilienhof stop. The bus had got ahead of the tape, and had therefore entirely tricked us. The next stop wasn't for ages, and the bus timetable meant that was no way we could get back to the Cecilienhof and walk around it before we would ...
