... with some sun glasses. If you thought we did a lot of walking in Amsterdam we did ten times the amount in Berlin. Two hour walk into town. The ubarn or whatever it's called is too expensive. I think €7 for the day so nah to that. We did some touristy stuff like the wall, the gate and ate curry wursts. Went to the willy Brandt museum but missed the Charlie check point bc its started to rain so we went home. We also went to a mini Jamaica by ...

... was completed in 1873 the commemorate the Prussian victory in the Prusso-Danish war of 1864. The gold figure at the top was added after the Prussian victories against Austria and France.
On our way back to the hostel we stopped by the gate again to take in the festival and eat some more food, and then stopped at the Holocaust Memorial. I don't know what I expected, but it certainly wasn't what I saw. So, it's a chuck of land that has 2,711 gray stone slabs that have ...

Orange Berlin

... over a year to help keep the Germans from starving. Speaking if food, I also ate my first currywurst (sausage covered in ketchup and curry powder) and discovered a few more cool museums that we'll tackle next week. This week has been busy and cold, but awesome! Berlin is a very different city than Munich, and it's nice to experience a different part if the country with different natives! Until next week!

One of the most famous icons of Germany! We checked in with a bussle of activity, there are tons of ppl around...I commented about it and the reception said it ...

Basking in Berlin! (and many a currywurst!)

... Jews of Europe. It occupys about 19,000 square metres and is made of 2,711 concrete slabs. They bear no markings and range from ankle height to towering above as the undulate along the paths.
It was designed by an American architect who has remained famously tight lipped about what it represents, instead only offering that he hoped to create a sense of disorientation but ultimately something that would be open to individual interpretation. Our guide offered ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Esplanade Berlin

    An excellent all round experience


    I selected this hotel through a combination of location, star rating and price....and I really picked a gem this time.

    Good and convenient hotel


    We spent 5 days at this hotel during the Easter Holiday. Its location is excellent for visiting Berlin as you can walk to the tube station (10 minutes) or just take one of the two excellent buses that have their stops nearby: the M29 and the 100. Just with this two lines, you can go nearly everywhere. The neighbourhood is perhaps too quiet, but that is also good after an intensive day sightseeing.

    Very good but not amazing


    Agree with others this is a good 4* hotel but not really a 5*.

    There,s better.. but its good


    Into says it all, its a compotent lower 5 star very clinical in a teutonic style.. if you want pre war Berlin stay else where. Central but un tousisty location around the corner from the wonderful Bar am Lutzoplatz and Trompet. If white and turquoise are your thing you love the bedrooms, with views of the sigusaule. Nearest metro is a treck, breakfast good if its included in your rate.. if it isnt..30euros!!! Its very German but not very Berlin, Germany's greatest city.

    Nice Hotel


    My wife and I stayed at this hotel during August 2004.

    It is very nice and in an excellent, quiet, location. It is also close to one of the main bus routes, or taxis which are always waiting at the hotel door.

    If you are intending to arrive by rail the closest stop is Zoo Station. Then a five minute taxi ride to the hotel.

    Rooms were very nice and breakfast was excellent.

    We would certainly stay here again.

    A breath of fresh air!


    This wonderful hotel located in the heart of Berlin proved to be a great experience during my month and a half tour of Germany. I stayed here in June "04" and was intrigued by the GRAND appearance! Being from the US a lot of hotels in Germany do not meet our standards of quality but this one was an exception. The rooms were great. The service was great. The only thing was this hotel is considered a 5 star in Germany but to me I would definitely rate it a 4 star. In the morning stop by the to-go cafe for a croissant and hot tea and take a cruise walk to see the many great sights of Berlin. The location is wonderful! I would definitely stay there again!

    Great hote, great location


    We stayed at the Grand Hotel Esplanade from 15-18th June 2004. We found it to be exceptional in all ways.

    Our room was a good size, extremely modern and contemporary and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in.

    Do try the hot tub in the leisure complex, you won't want to get out, it's heavenly.

    The hotel location is also very good. It's about 20 minutes to Potzdamer Platz, Brandenberg Gate etc in one direction and about the same in the other to Ka De We, the zoo and the main shopping area.

    I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this hotel to anyone, who appreciates quality, at a reasonable price.

    Fantastic German hotel


    The grand in its title is definately deserved. I stayed at the Grand Hotel Esplanade in March and really enjoyed it. The staff were friendly, the food excellent and the rooms very clean. Although we had the cheapest room in the hotel, it was absolutely massive. Would recommend to anyone.

    Great Hotel


    I stayed in the Grand Esplanade in April of 2001. Really loved it, although I'm not usually a fan of ultramodern decor. Every detail was thought through, from the beautiful warm blankets to the unusual colored bath gel in long vials. I had a nice room with a good view and felt at home immediately.

    Design, luxury and atmosphere


    I have stayed in many of Berlin's luxury Hotels, but the Grand Hotel Esplanade is still my favorite. Nowhere else in the world I have seen a hotel with such an intricate ultra-contemporary design. The hall boasts huge paintings by artists like Christo and Piene, each sofa is designed by Le Corbusier. The hotel has, of course, comfortable rooms, a first class gourmet restaurant, an inn serving beer and regional fare, one of Berlin's most popular bars and a nice swimming pool with health club. If you want to avoid the old-fashioned style and fake antiquities of Berlin's other luxury hotels go to the Esplanade. Doubtlessly Berlin's coolest luxury hotel!
