... br> Things were much more serene in Gedarmenmarkt. It’s the Knightsbridge of Berlin and its Weihnachtsmarkt is appropriately upmarket, seemingly selling mainly fine jewellery and over-elaborate decorations. It’s also the only Christmas market you have to pay to get in. Only €1, but the effect of this riff-raff deterrence is spectacular. The Kurfürstendamm market near Berlin Zoo was the one most crowded with foreign tourists. It was also ...
... on the plane and none of us had time for lunch.) It is now 3:00 PM. We walked to the radio tower, that is visible from most anywhere in the area. It will be helpful if we get lost. The light from the setting sun was perfect for photos. Neptune's Fountain is right next to the radio tower and the Alexander Platz tram stop. Our group was looking for the office of the Fat Tire Bike Tours. We managed to lose only one person in this searce but recovered nicely in about 30 minutes. Bill ...

After a delicious meal, Peter was keen to get a bit of diesel for the boat, so we had just a few family outings with the modified diesel trolley, from the marina and across the road with his two 22 litre tanks.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Castor the Vine Berlin
If you are gay this is a great 2 star choice in the heart of the gay Schoenberg section. Gay bars are all over the place including the popular Connections. Apollo and Steam saunas are within walking distance. Gay Video store with cruise area down the street.
Excelent for city break
this is a small hotel very well located to visit the city. Staff was helpfull and and the rooms spacious and clean. Breakfast was above average and gave the energy needed to walk all day.
there are good restaurants 5 minutes walking. One Italian (in the same street in front of a video store) and one Caribenean.
A very good suprise.
Good place to stay
Ended up at this hotel as a last choice but was very impressed with what we got.
Breakfast was of a very good quality with plenty of choice. The rooms were basic but met their purpose. However, there was no air conditioning, which was noticeable in the hot weather.
Located fairly close to the centre of Berlin and is easily walkable to most areas.
Stayed at Scandhotel in 3/05. Very friendly and helpful Staff. They all speak English. Excellent Location. The room is good size and clean. I would definitely stay here again.
A Little Gem
Picked this hotel because of it's reputation for great breakfasts - and wasn't disappointed. The choice of food would put a lot of top-priced hotels to shame. As a bonus, the location was excellent for the KuDamm & KaDeWe. Room was small but comfortable, and surprisingly quiet seeing it was on quite a busy street corner. Lots of excellent bars & restaurants in the surrouinding streets too.
Stayed at the Scandhotel in June 2003.Excellent service, nice size room - I had a twin for single use.
Good choice at breakfast.Very good location, short walk to the metro trains.Friendly bars on the same street.
Tried this hotel for the first time this year and I would definitley use it again. Very friendly staff, English speaking. The room was a good standard - I think it was technically a single but it had a large bed, minibar, TV/Radio, ensuite with walk-in shower. Excellent breakfast served until 11 at weekends so ideal for those late nights in Berlin. Talking of which, the hotel is ideally located for the Schoneberg gay scene in FuggerStrasse and Motzstrasse. I was there for the Easter weekend and the clientele was mostly straight couples but quite a few gay guys too. Being Easter there was plenty of free chocolate available from the hotel too - what more can you ask for! The hotel is also very well located for the Ku Damm and the delights of the KaDeWe department store. Also just a few mintes walk to Viktoria Luise Platz U-Bahn station. I have stayed in cheaper hotels in this area but I think this hotel was worth the extra.
Caviar for breakfast
Cracking service, comfortable rooms(even the triples where you get a proper bed), they even put breakfast on early as we had to get a train to Poland. We were a large group of football fans and we thought we'd get iffy service, but we were actually treated like human beings, which makes a change. I'm going back there with my wife at Christmas.
