... much further back in time than the reality. The first section of the wall went up quickly in the middle of the night in Aug.1961. However, it did not fall until Nov. 9, 1989. In 1989, I was in college and it is hard to imagine that regular everyday people were shot crossing the border. Many successful escapes were made, however, when that happened East Berlin would reinforce the Wall. Before it fell, the wall had three layers to it.
... one nearby from the internet and headed off there with my bat in my backpack. I thought I'd found the address but still couldn't find the pub... that's when I knew I must be on the right track because that's what happened to me last time. How anyone finds this place is a mystery to me.
And considering I walked here last time it seems impossible that the surrounding streets didn't seem familiar at all. It even felt ...

There were lucky ones too. Ones who made it to West Berlin.... To freedom, but they have a saying.. 'No-one ever escapes the same way twice'. There was the guy who put his family in a lowered convertible. When he got to the gates, everybody ducked and they drove underneath. The ...

TravelPod Member Reviewsart'otel berlin city center west
The Hotel was themed, but don't let that put you off! Everything from the art work to the carpets were inspired by the artist Andy Warhol.
The rooms were minimalist but in a good way!
Not a huge restaurant but the service was fine but not exciting but the cleanliness of the place was outstanding.
To walk to the centre of town took about 10mins but was far enough away to not pick up on any noise. The underground was less than 5 mins away.
This was the second Art'Otel I have stayed in and was impressed.

Historical Traveler Reviews art'otel berlin city center west
we stayed for 3 nights in october. we were more than satisfied with the service. the room was large enough. the thing i liked the most is that all of the staff were very young and friendly and i enjoyed the atmosphere especially at the bar. and location can't be better- close to the sightseeing bus stop and shopping area so when you are exhausted after long shopping safari you don't have to bother with the u-bahn.
Funky, bright rooms
Nice hotel, the decor is really funky and our room was large, bright, airy and clean. It's just off the Ku'damm and is therefore handy for reaching all of the sights although you need to be prepared to walk a bit. The airport bus stop is approx. 10 minutes walk from the hotel and the nearest underground station is also about 10 minutes away.
Didn't try the hotel restaurant, in fact didn't see anyone in the restaurant during our stay. There is a fab. pizza takeaway just round the corner where you can pick up a pizza slice for next to nothing.
Staff were efficient if slightly off hand - maybe just a bit 'cool'!
Pretty good hotel/good location
I stayed here for just 3 nights and it was decent enough. It was hot in Berlin and air conditioning was my priority and the room I had was cool enough. The room was tiny but clean. The bathroom was huge and clean. I liked the area of Berlin where the hotel was located. I stayed 2 nights in another hotel near an airport and it was much better to be in this hotel's area than way out by the airport. The staff was not very helpful but they were not rude either. The 1 elevator was annoying in the mornings when it was busy. It was a good 3-star hotel. I did not expect a lot and I did not get a lot. I would maybe stay here again if I didn't find anything better in the 4-star range.
