TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Boulevard Berlin
This is a fantastic place to stay. My travel advisor suggested this hotel in Berlin knowing I was traveling by myself. The hotel is part of the Azimut Hotels. The place was excellent in location and cleanliness; people were very friendly, they have the most amazing breakfast buffet. It is only a couple of minutes away from the train station. They provided it me with excellent maps and directions to go everywhere.
