... are soooo expensive! T.T
We are about to head onto the train to head to Rome. We have a short layover in Muenchen, and then an overnight train to Rome. This will be my first time taking a train overnight. I don't expect it to be much different than a long plane ride. Except with more space to move around.

... then went out to enjoy the sights a little bit, even though we've been to Berlin many times now, it is still amazing to see the Brandenburg Gate, and this time in thick fog and with a beautiful Christmas tree in front! The fog was so thick we couldn’t even see through the Gate to the other side, it was just a murky greyness. It made me think of how strange it would have been to be someone from the East (the side we were on) and ...
We arrived in berlin at around eleven. it was a rough nights sleep. We had less than four hours sleep on the night train before being woken up in Warsaw at three thirty to switch trains. We then waited around at the Warsaw train station in the freezing cold for two hours for our connecting train to arrive. It was then another five hour journey to berlin. Lucky for me the cabin we were seated in was almost completely empty, so I could stretch out across three seats and resume my ...
... staff respectively. I was convinced that they'd just got some local Asians to work there so I tried out my Mongolian and the two phrases of Malagasy that I could remember. Well, they still could have been locals but they certainly weren't cheating. This stand was selling horse meatballs and horse sausages including what I tried, a horse meat wiener. This is what it looked like. As usually the bread/roll ...
... to run the gauntlet and ride for free. Literally the next train station, 3 ticket inspectors got on and I thought "uh-oh". 2 of them went to the far end of the carriage and one of them talked to the gentleman across from me. I was trying to think what to do, and luckily he spent a lot of time with the guy he was talking to (I think he might have been giving him a fine). So with his back turned, I took my chance and stood up and walked past the inspector to stare at the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Zoo Berlin
Wunderbares Hotel, aufmerksames Personal, klasse Lage, ausgezeichnetes Essen, riesiges, füllendes Büfettfrühstück. Wenn man einen Berlinurlaub plant, dann wird der erst richtig spezial, wenn man im Hotel am Zoo unterkommt.
So, I recommend booking directly on the hotel website cause you get a much better deal than going through any of the online travel sites, which is good!
My son and I stayed at the Berlin Zoo hotel for five days in May. Our rooms were clean and spacious. Both rooms turned onto the inner yard - not a charming view from the 3rd floor, but quiet :-) The beds are very comfortable, and the bathrooms very nice - and immaculately clean. Our package included breakfast, which was very good, with many selections, including the famous Bircher-Muesli (homemade, of course). The staff - receptionists, room service and breakfast waiters - were all very helpful and kind. The location is fantastic! It is right on Kurfurstendamm, and close to metros, busses and the train station Bahnhof Zoo. A very nice choice for vacation as well as business in Berlin! I look forward to coming back :-)
Just returned from four night stay in at the AM Zoo, Berlin. Found the hotel to be very stylish and spotlessly clean. Our double room was very spacious,bed linen was white so there was no doubt about it's cleanliness. We were located on the first floor at the rear of the hotel, the main train line to Zoo station is adjacent to the hotel, but to be honest the noise of the trains did not disturb us at all. Breakfast was not included in our package so I cannot comment on this, I did order tea and found this expensive at 4 Euro per person, cheaper to go to one of the many cafes located beside the hotel. Staff quite pleasant and helpful, but not over friendly. A nice touch was that the hotel allowed us to store our luggage free of charge after we checked out. Would recommend and would stay there again.
Just returned from a stay at the Hotel Am Zoo. Stayed in twin room which was very spacious and immaculately clean. Beds were very comfortable, most comfortable I've ever stayed in. Bathroom also spacious with twin, bath & shower etc.
Only negative point was some music noise from main street.
Staff very helpful and very efficient. Large breakfast rooom with wide choice of foods on offer to cater for all tastes.
Pleasant bar area with large pull down t.v. screen. Ideal location nearby all shops, restaurants and some of the main sightseeing attractions. Would definately recommend this hotel.
Booked hotel direct and got best deal incl breakfast.
Great location for shopping
Great location - this hotel is very close to major German department stores KDW, Peek and Cloppenburg and other chains - Zara, H&M, C&A,etc. Lots of shoe stores and even a Starbucks! All located on Kurfuerstendam street. The area gets very quiet at night - if you are looking for nightlife you will need to head off somewhere else in the city (lots of options).
Rooms in the hotel are basic, clean, but dated (furniture, 70s style). Breakfast excellent.
Great place to stay
A great hotel in an excellent location/base for everthing you wish to get out of a city break the hotel which is on the Ku'Damm is Berlins answer to 5th Ave in New York with all the shops and resturants. The hotel is next to the underground (Uhlandstr.)and around the corner from the Zoologischer Garten station which either will take you all over the city. The hotel staff are very helpfull and speak excellent english. Whilst we did not eat at the hotel we enjoyed a drink in the lounge on the 1st floor relaxing in their leather chairs after a day of shopping and sightseing. The berlin weather was not very kind to us snow & rain but the hotel was lovely and warm. So to sum up great hotel great city we will be back no matter what the weather.
I would definately recommend this hotel. very stylish decor, friendly and helpfull staff and incredibly clean and spacious rooms. Breakfast had enough to satisfy all tastes...fruit, yogurts, cheese, cold meats, hot bacon / sausages / eggs etc, loads of bread and cereal...fantastic!!
Beautiful hotel,attentive staff,great location,excellent food,big filling buffet breakfasts.If you want to make your holiday in Berlin that little bit more special then stay at the Hotel Am Zoo.
The hotel is in an ideal location for seeing the sights, proximity to transport networks and was impeccably clean and comfortable. Can't wait to go back again.
