ich bin ein defective - who woulda thunk?
went to sleep last night in the usual manner - dead tired, feet and knees throbbing from walking 5 to 7 hours a day...but i woke up unlike every other day, refreshed and ready to go, today my knee didn't want to move correctly...i couldn't properly straighten my left leg and putting weight on it …
6 am start to finish packing (gave up last night!) The luggage was loaded on the bus and we had a couple of hour's drive (and I had a little nap) to Potsdam. First stop was Sanssouci Park and a tour of the new Palace. We all had to wear large slippers over our shoes to protect the floors. Only one size available, about 15, so it was quite a sight to see us all skating around the floor. No wonder the floors are so shiny. A weird thing happened while ...
Its hard to enjoy yourself, walking around in 36C. It felt so much hotter. Plus it was a long day, 9am to 10.30pm, walking for most of it. We started with buffet breakfast in the hotel, taking a packed lunch for later. We walked from our hotel, near the zoo, along the Street of June 17, through the gardens, past the Victory Column towards to Brandenberg Gate. We got scammed along the way, at least we got it out of our system early. A sad silent gesture, ...
... buds couldn’t believe it wasn’t breadsticks.
As already mentioned, we’ve both got clean clothes. This delightful event occurred on the first morning of our stay in Berlin when the situation was getting desperate, I had nothing left, and couldn’t face reusing certain items, and Becky was running dangerously low and wouldn’t have made it to Bruges. This led to many discussions with the hotel staff, local ...
... ended up signing our names on the wall. I felt bad ass doing it, but I doubt anyone would have cared. Lol. The one thing I did not like about Berlin was the cold. It was bloody freezing. Having been in warm countries it was a shock to my system. Andrea was even colder than I was, as she is from Ecuador and rarely sees the snow. It didn't take us long to decide we needed to go eat somewhere and warm up. Later on we met up ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Berlin Mark Hotel
We stayed here (Wife and kids 15&17) for three nights in Mid February. This is a very convenient location and rooms far exceeded my expectations. Look no further for a comfortable outstanding value than the Berlin Mark Hotel (Rooms were 45 euros/night) The previous post had good ideas concerning transportion throughout the city (#100 and #200 Bus). The German transportation system is excellent and inexpensive. We bought a Small Group Day Ticketfor up to 5 people (Kleinesgruppentage Karte) for 14.80 Euro/day for unlimited travel throughout the city on all transports. This included the Airport Express from Schoenfeld Airport.
My wife and I stayed here for two nights. Overall experience was excellent. Staff was friendly and spoke English, room was spacious and clean, everything worked well, clean bathroom with good hot showers. We have stayed at many hotels throughout Europe over the past four years and this hotel definitely provided the most bang for the buck - and in the heart of Berlin! Normally I would pay at least $120/night for this nice of a room - and even then it would not include breakfast. The breakfast spread was outstanding - bacon, sausages, scrambled or hard boiled eggs, bread, cheeses, meats, yogurt, cereals, fresh fruit, all the good german coffee you can drink, fresh juices.
Very enjoyable stay
I was also rather nervous of staying at this hotel, given some of the poor reviews, but my husband and I had a lovely 4-night stay in the Berlin Mark hotel.
The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms were spotlessly clean, comfortable, quiet and well-fitted out and the breakfast provided a more than adequate selection. Safety deposit boxes were provided free of charge at reception and depositing any valuables, passports etc. there gave us complete peace of mind.
The hotel is in a good location with the sightseeing bus leaving from the bottom of the street and it's convenient to shops and restaurants/cafes and also public transport. We got an exceptionally good deal for the hotel and were not disappointed. Would definitely recommend it and would use again.
Fantastic deal at a great hotel and great location
Just spent a long weekend at The Berlin Mark Hotel. I was a bit nervous having seen previous reviews but had to say we had nothing but praise for the hotel and the staff. The rooms were spotless and lovely clean bedding and towels. Nice big rooms with facilities similar to Holiday Inn. Plentiful breakfast on spotless table linen all inclusive in price.
Reception staff were most helpful and offered to book a show etc if we required. They also gave useful information for train times etc.
All in all a very pleasing weekend at the Hotel Berlin Mark. Highly recommended!
My brother and his wife got robbed while beeing in me and my wifes room. They were in our room for approx 30 min. When they got back someone had gone into my brothers room, taken his leatherjacket, his wallet, and his wifes handbag. Someone with a KEY had been in the room. The hotel staff didn´t care at all. Just shook there shoulders. The staff were rude, ignorant and didn´t care. No help at all. After 10 minutes arguing with the staff, another couple came down and told the same story - been robbed too!!. No refund, no compensation, no nothing. Avoid this hotel at any cost!! By the way, the breakfast was also horrible. A lot of smokers, and very very little to choose from ! No safety boxes in the hotel. (i wonder why...)
We originally booked with Expedia for the Mark Apart Hotel, which is under same management but is not the same hotel. But on arrival at that hotel we were told that they had made an error and booked us at this hotel. This was definitely not a good start to a holiday, considering we had to carry luggage for 300 metres to our new booking! But this turned out to be a blessing in disguise, given that the Berlin Mark Hotel is more central, being 2 minutes walk from the Ku'damm, & with 2 underground stations nearby. The hotel seems to be a well-kept German secret; most other guests seemed to be locals and prices are very reasonable. Rooms average but clean, though ours turned out to have 1 double & 1 single bed (having previously specifically requested to have a twin not a double room). Also, the light fitting in the room hallway was not in place, with the electricity cable dangling overhead beyond reach! Breakfast is typically German, but good.
The Mark was just fine
I stayed at the Mark for four days in November. The rate through Expedia was good and the location was excellent - easy walking distance from the Bahnhof Zoo, just of the Ku'damm. Staff were friendly and the breakfast was a good, full German buffet. This is a no-frills economy tourist/business hotel. My room was clean, functional and comfortable in the basic European sort of way. It's not a 'character' hotel, but then I wasn't expecting it to be. I wouldn't say this is an outstanding choice, but on the other hand if the rate was right, I would certainly stay here again. And I wouldn't be put off by negative reviews -- I chose this hotel based on positive reviews in TripAdvisor and I wasn't disappointed.
Dirty not as expected
Booked a double room only to arrive and find it two singles in a dirty, grubby room. Complained about room but told that as they where full nothing could be done. Desided not to stay and made sure there was no charge. At home checked my credit card statement and found they had charged me for the full stay.Complained to Hotel but everyone I needed to speak to was either busy or not there. I then contacted my credit card company and after a few weeks they obtained a refund.
Months prior we had booked a double room, when we arrived we received a twin. We complained only to be told no double rooms were available. We might have stayed if the room was not as grubby as it was. So we checked out and stayed at the Hotel AM Zoo (right on the main drag two mins away from Berlin Mark Hotel) all I can say about the AM Zoo is FANTASTIC - beautiful rooms and also very large, great staff, no noise whatsoever (and we went for New Year!!), and CHEAPER than the Berlin Mark. Guess where we will be staying from now on? Definatley NOT the Berlin Mark.
Very nice hotel just a short walk from Kurfurstendamm and Bahnhof Zoo. Friendly and helpful staff, plentiful breakfast, and spacious, quiet (business-class) room make this a great place to stay in Berlin!
