... wing in more detail, the were a lot if propaganda posters and newspaper articles to see how one man managed to brainwash so many people. Next we walked down the street, via the big share a coke with billboards for pics with Lisa and Sarah before checking out some of the souvenir shops, they were a bit of a let down here, but that was probably a good thing! We then jumped on the train back to our hostel to get ready for the night. We all had to get white ...
... throughout our trip. This was compounded by what I am calling The Symphony of Snores, as at least three out of the six in the room were horrid snorers. Luckily, the beer helped me fall asleep and get at least a few hours of shuteye before another sure-to-be long day.
I woke up the next morning and debated if I would get breakfast at the hostel, or down the road at the café we tried earlier. I decided to try the cheaper four Euro breakfast, and ...
... along the Spree river, and street art everywhere you look. At first glance, someone might think these areas are really dangerous or shady due the fact that everything is covered in grafitti, but they are actually really nice areas. Graffiti, street art, is their way of expressing everything and is a big part of who they are, I look forward to learning more about that.
After dinner and our journey we headed back to the hostel to take a break. All of the other people staying at ...
... at our hostel after a long day of work and traveling. Our hostels previously had been very mellow and low key; this one however was quite the hotspot! We arrived there around 12:30 AM and there were people playing pool, drinking, and enjoying music. We never know what to expect when booking a hostel except what we read through the reviews and ratings. I always get excited though because opening the door to our room is very suspenseful, but in a good way, and so far ...
... in WWII. It is a place well worth visiting.
For anyone who is into this period in history there is something new to see every day - Checkpoint Charlie, Brandenberg Gate, the Reichstag, Hitler's Bunker (which is now a car park!) and a museum called The Topographies des Terrors, which is a history of the German SS and the horrors they perpetrated on the people of ...

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?
