... was telling us all about Frederick the Great. I could hear music and wherever I walked it seemed to be following me. Finally realised it was coming from my rucksack. My ipod, which had been turned off all week, had turned itself on, found the music and started playing. And the song... If I Could Turn Back Time by Cher. Spooky!!!

Later we saw someone scream in the vicinity of these people, and them run off startled, laughing. Each subsequent scammer that approaches me gets a rude rejection, as they deserve.

When she pointed us to the back of her shop we couldn’t believe our luck, but no, she pointed us to her toilet. It seems I’d asked her where the nearest washroom was – we politely declined, but it was very kind offer. Eventually we did find ...

He also showed us the book burning memorial. The ******* Hitler burned all the books at one point, so it's an empty room with bookcases underground. Kind of neat to see. I wish I could remember all of the stuff he showed us, but I can't. The next day before Andrea left, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Berlin Plaza Hotel
Nice Place to Stay
We stayed 4 nights found the staff exceptionally helpful with directions. Staff spoke English. It is centrally located close to buses that can take you everywhere. Hotel is old with a really small elevator; but charming, great breakfast! Not a fancy hotel but very nice and clean.
The Plaza Hotel was very convienent to all the shops, underground station, restaurants and had a lovely cosy bar attached to the hotel which served excellent German beer and food.
The rooms were a bit on the small side but very clean and warm - we were there in February - and the buffet breakfasts were great.
The staff were very pleasant and helpful.
Overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Berlin.
Travelled to Berlin at the end of Feb 06 and stayed 3 nights at the Berlin Plaza from 28/02/06 - 02/03/06. Our party was made up of 4 adults and we all had a great time at this hotel.
Stayed with my partner january 2006.Very clean hotel,staff excellent.Breakfast was good.Easy to find only 5 minutes from the underground and in a great location for shopping and getting transport to all the sites.Great price for a hotel in a major city with such a good location.Ideal for a long weekend in Berlin.
My favourite hotel in Berlin. It is so homely, and comfortable. I wish I could live here. The staff are always the same, which I like, and seem to know and like each other so much, and so make the guest feel at ease,too. The first thing I look for in a hotel is its own dark cosy bar & restaurant, to start your day off from and to retire to at the end of it--it was the pictures of the bar on the hotel website that made me first choose the Berlin Plaza & I was not disappointed. All dark wood & brass railings, stained glass windows & candles. The service is fantastic. Just look up from your beautiful Berliner Pils, and they will catch your eye across the room and silently smile and mouth "Another?" The food is delicious, especially the knesepfanne. Reception staff are so relaxed and friendly. The hotel is just ten yards off of the Ku'Damm (the Champs Elysees of Berlin?). The 109 from Tegel Airport brings you right here, and a constant flow of buses take you the short 3 or 4 minute ride further along the Ku'Damm into Berlin Zoo station. Like someone else says, the Berlin Plaza is a gem. It has real character & warmth, I think. And a charmingly miniature lift.
We stayed at the Berlin Plaza for four nights this january and were quite pleased with it. It's centrally located right off the Ku'damm with all its shops, restaurants and entertainment.
A loittle gem of a place
For a 3" hotel this is great and Im a real Hotel snob! Small rooms but every facility, even with little balconies at front. So friendly and the hotel breakfast buffet is SUPERB. Friendly staff,and a great little restaurant ..cuisine is A1 and portions enormous. Spot on location ... only minus is very few no smoking rooms ..we are coming back here in the spring!!!
Value for money
Located just yards from Ku-damm, 5 minutes from S-bahn and U-bahn stations, we found this hotel to be excellent value for money. While the rooms are small, they are perfectly adequate for a long weekend stay. Breakfast is a buffet with plenty to eat and a good selection. While there is no advertised room service, we had no problem getting tea and coffee delivered to our rooms first thing in the morning, at no charge, which overcame the lack of tea/coffee facilities in the room.
The lifts are on the small size, but if you're feeling fit then the stairs are an easy option.
Staff were always helpful and polite, nothing seemed too much trouble.
OK, so it is only three star, so maybe I shouldn't comment, but this place felt like two star to me. It took me back to my days as a student - fell like I was in a university halls of residence rather than a hotel. Travelling on my own for business usually get a double as single, but this time really had a single - well, it was probably a three-quarter double bed. Not the most comfy one either - it was just a bit lumpy and only one pillow. Bathroom OK - no tub, just a shower and a very small cubicle at that. Admit I'm a tall guy, but I could hardly move around to wash. Room was clean. No broadband internet, just dial up. Although in a nonsmoking room on a (I think) mostly nonsmoking floor, I seemed to frequently get a really strong smell of cigarette smoke in the room - couldn't work out where it came from - not through airco, as there was none. Location fine for central Berlin - just off Kurfürstendamm, so shops, restaurants and public transport all nearby (UBahn and buses). Easy to get to from airport - Bus 109 drops you on the next corner for only 2 Euro. I wouldn't stay here again, would rather pay a little more for better quality, but if you were looking for somewhere on a tighter budget, then this place is OK for a few nights I am sure. Staff were friendly and smiley.
Efficiency, without fuss
We stayed at the Berlin Plaza for 3 nights in May '04. The hotel is typically efficient German; whilst the rooms may look a little stark in that minimalist modern Geman style, they are absolutely spotless and the beds most comfortable. The breakfast is everything one could want, again in the German style.
The hotel is just one building back from the Ku'dam so it misses out on traffic noise, but is close to several restaurants and the major stores are within a short walking distance.
Well worth patronising.
