... site of the Nazi and SS headquarters. It's basically a timeline of what happened from just before Hitler got into power until after the end of the war. The amount of information presented was amazing, we were there for ages and had very sore feet by the end of it! There was also another section of museum in a building at the site, however, we were a bit historied out by that point and didn't go in.

We decided to wrap up the ...

Have seen Brandenburg Gate, Hitler's bunker, Holocaust Memorial, Check point Charlie, Postdamer Platz, SS Headquarters, The Berlin Wall and much more .... Afterwards I then went and looked around Topographie Des Terrors which is a museum about the Nazi regime which was very harrowing indeed ... After relaxing back at ...

So this morning I decided to go to the Lidl supermarket which is across the road. It's closer than the Kaiser and Penny supermarket. It was a lot cheaper than Kaiser. I bought fruit,chocolate, juice and yoghurt. I went for a walk and then came back home. When Nadzha finished studying she came home and we talked. She was concerned about me. Apparently I've been snappy lately. I told her that I've just been dealing with stuff. I've been worried about ...

... photographs that people were sifting through, a Polaroid camera stand with old school film cameras as well and a stand selling only camouflage army gear (very fitting for Germany I thought!). There was also a lot of eateries. We opted for a currywurst (literally a sausage in curry sauce), it tasted ok. Later on part of the park turned into a karaoke area. It was set on this half amphitheater overlooking a basketball court. The ...

... you know you are over London and landing soon. Our bags were literally the last on the carousel. Luckily Juniper met us at the airport to help with Euro exchange & cab ride to Kamil's, about $50. Try to sleep, sleep, sleep, but Bredan is getting sick with sore throat and congestion. Juniper & I walked around the corner to cafe for lunch, then to a grocery store for provisions for ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews ARCOTEL Velvet Berlin

    Arcotel - Berlin

    from

    Very nice hotel, well-situated, a little noisy on Fri / Sat. nights... but generally very good.

    Well designed & Good value

    from

    Learned about this hotel from Samatha Brown's tv travel show and I also saw the positive reviews on this site. I thought the price (Expedia) was good value for the well deisgned room. We were very impressed with the clever use of space and the modern style. The location is good as well and just steps from the U & S trains.

    Loved the Arcotel

    from

    Just returned yesterday after a three night stay at this hotel. Excellent location, plenty of good restaurants, U bahn and S bahn close by. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was very comfortable, with a good sized bed. The bath/shower and sink are curtained off but there is a door on the toilet. Our room (409) was at the front of the hotel on the main road with a floor to ceiling window, but we were not disturbed at night.

    We thoroughly enjoyed Berlin, and would definitely stay at this hotel again.

    Fabulous

    from

    Stayed here in December as base for visiting Christmas Markets and general eating and drinking. Hotel was great, lovely rooms, friendly staff, great cocktails in the Velvet Lounge. Location was fab and we walked to most of the sights and markets. Great location for nightlife and restaurants also. Would stay there again like a shot!

    Too stylish for words

    from

    The most stylish hotel we've ever stayed in and so well designed it was unreal. Beds very comfortable - power shower with unlimited hot water - a warm lamp to stand under when you're at the most oddly shaped sink - and a DVD player!

    Great restaurants across the road - there's this great Indian restaurant across the road - best indian food I've ever had! Breakfast too expensive, but there's a few coffee shops around.

    We booked through (---) and got the room for the equivalent of ''''''55 per room per night.

    **** HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ****

    Excellent Value, Sexy Hotel

    from

    Arcotel represents excellent value - very sexy, modern rooms with fabulous facilities. Shop around for the best prices. Perfect location on Orainburger Strasse - which is very central in uber cool Mitte!

    To keep room costs low nothing else is included - so avoid the breakfast if it isnt included as they charge a whopping €25pp per day....plenty of cafes on the street to try out instead.

    Not bad at all

    from

    I would definitely stay here again. Lots of bars and restaurants along the street. Metro station nearby. Rooms very modern and sharply decorated. Bar not bad.

    Stylish, comfortable hotel

    from

    My partner and I stayed at the Arcotel Velvet for four nights in October 2004. The hotel is ideally situated in the heart of Mitte, surrounded by good restaurants and trendy bars but within easy reach of all major tourist attractions (either on foot or by S or U Bahn).

    The hotel itself was spotlessly clean and the rooms plush without being overbearing. Our ("standard" though larger than average) room overlooked Oranienburger Strasse and was equipped with a flat-screen TV, DVD player, walk-in shower and mini bar, on top of the usual features you would expect.

    The hotel bar was comfortable (though reasonably expensive) and the staff friendly.

    All in all an excellent choice for low-key comfort.

    An excellent boutique choice

    from

    This is a brand-new (opened in spring 2004) relatively undiscovered friendly boutique hotel in a very cool Mitte neighborhood, next door to the nightlife, funky boutiques, and fun restaurants, yet relatively quiet, at least if you choose the rooms facing the courtyard which offers amazing graffiti and rust sculptures associated with the Tacheles gallery. The hotel is extremely accessible by S-Bahn and U-Bahn, and the streetcars stop right in front of the hotel.
