... Who knows why I went onto study History for a semester at University, yes an NP definitely did result). It didn't interest me, the teacher made no effort to draw parallels between the life I was living and what happened and so voilaaaa! Several years later though (7 years after my NP if we are going to be precise. It is a touchy subject), I ...
We missed our connecting flight in Munich to Berlin but we were put on the next flight 30 mins later. We got to Berlin and grab a bus and train to the hotel to meet up with Dan and Noemi. It was already around 6 pm si we went yo the Brahaus dor some beer, sausages and pretzels which were ...
... sense of freedom, we jumped on a flight to get this place done. My good friend Ann from home had organized for us to stay with her cousin Bubu and her husband Nico, who between them were an assorted lolly-bag of backgrounds, now living in Berlin.
The morning of our departure in Thessaloniki we were instantly aware of the general predicaments of the backpacker; walking through peak hour filled streets with a huge pack on the back, one on the front, ...
We had a delicious buffet I has fried egg on toast and some chorros. We walked to the big German flag and had some trouble finding our tour guide but Richard was the one who ended up finding her. Her name was Gretta she was very informative. It was a walking to that went for 5 hours I wasn't sure whether I could walk that far without my legs dropping off.

... airport with a few boutique like stores. Of course I was MUCH younger when last there, but I have now concluded that the space previously occupied by "interesting stores" has been needed for all the various security check points, etc. So after a typically bad airport lunch, I found a plug and contented myself with I-pad games while Rowland found his own amusements. The flight was uneventful, but at 7 hours, we expected a meal. Only ...

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.
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!
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.
We had 1 night in Berlin over the weekend of the 14-15th Aug 04.
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?
