Everything is going well except the blog . went to Check Point Charley today. (please explain to younger girls about The Berlin Wall) you would not believe the Sony Center here . It like a contemporary glass mall. to us everyone looks young, but the city is not as busy as we expected. tomorrow is big day and we'll try again to download pictures …
Berlin's claim to culinary fame is curry wurst! Fried bratwurst, sliced onto a paper plate, and smothered with Worcestershire sauce ( or something like it), chilli powder and loads of tomato ketchup (sauce) mit brodt (bread). We go to a German restaurant and have kasseler with boiled potatoes and sauerkraut, and stuffed cabbage with …
... Learnt more German tonight, learnt the sentence train is delayed by 90 minutes lol ... Finally the train did arrive and we got settled in our first class carriage (was cheaper than 2nd class go figure!) and had a pleasant journey into Hamburg, arriving at 9pm. Once checked in and sorted relaxed for the evening watching TV in German ...
... sloping windows at the edge of the building. Not sure I'd like that job, a bit too dangerous for the sake of wiping away bird ****.
Once I'd collected back the weapon of my failed plot to demolish the Reichstag (my harmonica), we sat at a bench and tucked into some lunch, during which a pair of boys approached us supposedly working for the 'deaf and blind' charity. A unanimous cry of "No!" confirmed that we're now fairly interrail savvy. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Angleterre Hotel Berlin
We booked via Wotif, who were doing a 3 night deal where you got the 3rd night for €10. I love a bargain!
Great hotel - no complaints
Stayed here for 3 nights. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We were on the 7th floor. Our room was spacious and immaculately clean. No problems with water as previously mentioned. We didn't take breakfast at the hotel, as we wanted to get 'out and about ' as much as possible. We did have a drink in the Commonwealth Bar which was very relaxing.
Great location! Underground station right outside the door.
We enjoyed a late night coffee at the Cafe Adler, just feet away at Checkpoint Charlie before retiring at night! Hope to stay here again one day.
We have just spent 3 nights at the Angleterre. The location is very close to Checkpoint Charlie and the Jewish Museum and the main shopping district on Friedrichstrasse. There is an underground stop right outside the hotel and you can travel easily round the whole city - I would recommend buying a Welcome Card from the hotel staff purely for this reason. Don't bother with the €15 buffet breakfast as there are lots of cafes worth exploring. For example, if you walk past Checkpoint Charlie and turn right there is a little cafe called the East Side Cafe where you can get breakfast and really good Milchkaffe!
Good Deal at the Angleterre
We stayed at the Angleterre for 3 nights in Feb 2006. We got a good deal off bookings -256 Euros for 3 nights in a deluxe room. We had room 810 on the 8th floor. It was really unusual-long and fairly narrow with windows facing towards the sky. We thought it was great.
Previous posts about the water pressure are accurate. In the mornings, at times, there was virtually no water at all. However, later in the day, the water pressure was fine.
We didn't have the breakfast as it wasn't included in the price but there are plenty of places locally to get something to eat.
We will definitely be returning to Berlin and may well stay at the Angleterre again.
Great value for money
Just stayed at the Angleterre for 3 nights. Staff were helpful and friendly, rooms comfortable. Good location - tube station just outside. Buffet breakfast excellent. Berlin is a fascinating city and if you plan to go would definitely recommend this hotel.
Located just in front of the tube-station and in walking distance to nice shops like Gallery Lafayette, Quartier 206 and the famous street "Unter den Linden" with the Brandenburger Tor.
Room was quite nice, breakfast buffet okay.
We had each morning + evening problems with the shower. There was just a little bit hot water or even no water at all. After complaining at front desk, the employee told us, that "they know that there is a problem with water pressure if there are lot of people using shower". Not acceptable for a 4 star rated hotel in Germany ! If you book accommodation, ask for a room in the first 3 floors, than maybe this doesnt occur.
We will choose another hotel for next visit in Berlin
An amazing holiday
We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights. The room was very modern and the bathroom especially luxurious with a wet room type double shower. The key card room entry worked brilliantly and was handy to carry arouind.
The location of the hotel is ace!! Geta 2 or 3 day travel card and you are away. The U-Bahn station is directly outside the hotel and the system is easy to use and efficient.
We had a great time and would love to go back.
Summer break in Berlin
I stayed for four nights in this hotel and everything was fine. The rooms were clean & comfortable, with all the amenities you would expect in a modern hotel.
It is only 100m from Checkpoint Charlie and is located beside the Kochstraße U-bahn stop (U6)(most of the maps aren't very specific on the hotel's location).
No room in the inn
Turned up after a taxi ride from the airport only to be told that there was no room for us, this after my mate was rung up the week before to confirm our room. They arranged a taxi to a 'sister' hotel on the other side of Berlin out of the centre of town and gave us a free beer each. But while we were waiting a German group came in and got rooms alright which grated a bit. They did throw in free breakfast with the sister hotel (Adrema Hotel) which was OK but probably only 3 star in standard.
I stayed at this Hotel 3 nights during the International Travel Fair 13th, 14th and 15th March. Room clean and bathroom OK - Internet service not working on the television set (Not corrected during the three day stay). Front desk - good, concierge (Willhelm) very helpful.
