This morning we left Prague via train and crossed the border to Germany for our Berlin visit. It was a 4.5hrs train ride with beautiful sceneries and relaxing atmosphere. We followed the river most of the way until we crossed the border and reached Dresden. I was very happy we were able to maneuver the train station in Prague with no mishaps. Upon …
... towers, the dogs. We
walked past Checkpoint Charlie but it’s an ugly tourist trap which completely disrespects what really happened during the cold war. It is nothing like what the real checkpoints were like (Tarek had great pictures of the real checkpoints), and the ‘guards’ at Checkpoint Charlie, standing there holding flags, are paid actors, and the whole area is surrounded by fast food stalls (literally, cheesy). It’s in ...
... on sama linn ja 5-kordse maja aknast oleks võinud vabalt üle vaadata. Aga ei saanud, kõik sealpoolsed aknad olid kinni müüritud. Seepärast sel tänaval liikuski tol ajal vaid selle tänava rahvas, polnud ju kuhugi edasi minna. Aga nüüd on see ilmselt Prenzlauer Bergi tähtsamaid. Trotuaarid on ehitatud laiaks, lillekastid ja kohvikulauad, keskel kitsas ...
... take it all in. Next we walked by checkpoint Charlie, which was where Ro crossed in to East Berlin when he visited in 1989 before the wall came down. A little disappointing for Ro as it obviously is no longer a border crossing but interesting to walk by for us. Time to head home, a short train ride and walk back to our place. What was anticipated as a slow day ended up quite full, kids were tired and found what we saw interesting but ...
... so had nothing to loose and went with the new highway so for the next 194 kms the GPS told us we were on 'unmapped territory', but we got there!!! And booked into our Prague apartment by 6pm. Hana, our host, meet us and helped us to gain cheap close by car parking, and after a short stroll around the Little Quarter(Male Strana) of this magical city, we choose a nearby cafe, built in 1564, to eat a meal of Beef Goulash and dumplings. We feel quite ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Crowne Plaza Berlin City Center
Fantastic location in a quiet street right off the main shopping street and close to the underground station. But it doesn't end there, the quality of this hotel is well worth it's four stars, wonderful courteous but friendly staff, large comfortably furnished immaculately clean rooms complete with bath robes, and a breakfast that you could die for. The choice in the breakfast room was like nothing I have ever experienced in hotels, and I have stayed in a few in my time. We were a family party of 6 staying there for 3 nights including New Years Eve when we tested the restaurant out for the Gala Dinner, it was quite pricey at 65 Euro, but it was exquisite. Overall I was very happy I chose this hotel as were my wife and the others in my party, I would definitely use it again.
My husband and I stayed in this hotel in early January 2005 and I can say this is a very good hotel. The only negative point is the lobby???s sitting area, which is so unadorned.
Stayed here over the Christmas holidays 2004 and could not fault it in any way. The main benefit I would say is the location, within walking distance (even with a suitcase) from the main "ZOO" railway station, opposite the Europa Shopping Mall, round the corner from KaDeWe(Europes largest department store) and a Christmas Market of about 100 stalls right on the doorstep, which was open till about 10pm each evening.
Fantastic location and excellent staff
This hotel has an unbeatable location for sightseeing in this vast city. The Zoo Station transport hub is just round the corner and two other U-bahn stops are very near, also the Kurfurstendamm is just minutes away, yet this hotel is in a street which is amazingly quiet compared to those adjacent. Reception staff excellent and all wore badges to indicate which languages they spoke. Rooms spacious, bathroom even more so, and very adequate without being stunning. Buffet breakfast pricey but good. Only real gripes were that the safe-deposit box system was fiddly and that the towels could have been changed more often for a hotel of that class.
Good location, but a bit run-down
The best part of this hotel is the location -- half a block from the K-Dam, and right behind the Europa Centre. Short walk to Zoo train station (easy connections to Tegel airport or anywhere else in the city). Probably useful to request a room not overlooking the street, though.
Furnishings are fine, although could use a bit of updating. The bed was a hide-a-bed, which wasn't all that confortable (would have prefered a real bed). Even though it was a double-bed, only a single-sized comforter (and no additional blankets).
The cleaning was a bit questionable. There was still a floss from a previous guest on the toilet (which makes me wonder if the toilet was cleaned at all before I moved in). The empty kleenex box was not replenished during my stay.
Good Choice in Berlin!
I stayed for three nights this Spring at the Crowne Plaza. Modern, well-located hotel which is up to American standards. Large, clean rooms. A single person stays in a double room, not a European broom closet as is often assigned to one guest. Right off the Kudam, convienient to public transport, shopping and sights. Would stay again in a second and recommend to anyone.
This 4-star hotel is located very close to big stores and shopping possibilities. Also the tourist information center is nearby, as is the Zoo bus station which links to the TXL Airport.
A good West Berlin base
Firstly, the location. For tourists, a hotel in East Berlin might be more convenient, but if you want a West Berlin base, this is a great choice. Rooms are comfortable, with modern decor and bathrooms. Great swimming pool and health club facilities. Service is second to none.
Probably more geared to the business traveller, but the leisure traveller should also enjoy!
Good Location - average hotel
I had previously stayed at the BErlin Inter Continental and found the Crowne Plaza to fare rather poorly when compared. The rooms were not as nice and the service left alot to be desired. It redeemed itself by its good location in the city and its nice buffet breakfast (though again this was not half as good as the Inter Continental which is only 2 blocks away).
Good choice for leisure aswell as bussiness travel
Good hotel, great location, nice and tidy rooms, cozy bar, friendly staff. Good value for money
