As with all major cities Berlin has a mass of hotels ranging for the cheap to the blinking ridiculous! We chose the Ibis Berlin Ostbahnhof simply because it is located next to the one of the main railway stations in Berlin which is very convenient for our train from Amsterdam and one to Warsaw. The hotel is just across the street from the station and is only a couple of minutes' walk as long as you leave by the nearest doors! The station is massive and if you leave at the wrong end it is can easily double the distance you have to walk outside something you won't do twice in this weather! After getting off the train head for the main hall and then follow the signs or smell of Subways, go past Subways and use the exit at the end of the hallway you can't miss the hotel which is to the left.
The hotel is what you would expect from an Ibis, clean, warm and modern and only cost 45EUR a night. Based in East Berlin most tourist sites are a little further away but are easily accessible on the metro from the station right across the street. We would recommend this hotel to other travellers.

We used a taxi to get to the apartment, because in all honesty we had no idea how to get there. Once we arrived and checked in, we worked out our local area. Our apartment is very spacious, modern and clean, and not to mention in a great location. Brandenburg Gate is a block away, ...
... Charly and Hubert were coming to stay! They arrived on the 2nd. It was also very exciting because a friend of mine, whom I met in Australia and who is originally from Germany was coming to berlin to spend Silvester with us! Silvester is German for NYE.

In the evening we also went out for a nice meal. We both had schnitzel. Delicious. To finish the day we walked found the Alexanderplätze where there is a German Market. Not quite Christmas at Köln but good enough!
SO back to today! We left the hostel about 11 and headed straight to breakfast. We were going to go all German and have blackbröt mit käse (Black bread ...
