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.

... Mac and Josie's ninth subway: New York, LA, Washington D.C., Barcelona, Paris, Rome, London and now Berlin, and of course, St. Louis. That doesn't count the boat bus in Venice and the people mover in Las Vegas.
We went to the U station to see what line to take and purchase tickets. We'd have to say that their subway maps are a bit more confusing than others we've seen. We had to take the line to one point, then switch to another line to get us closer ...
... checked (I failed to understand what that had to do with not having a train ticket), or 2) pay a spot fine of €40.
I refused to believe that I deserved a fine - I tired everything within my power to buy a ticket but the machine refused to take my money and issue me a ticket. I repeated my explanation to them again but they rigidly claimed that it was a criminal offence in Germany to travel without a valid ticket. Honestly it was like talking to ...
... to go in to it

... amazing!!! We then proceeded to make our own homemade shampoo and conditioner which was so unbelievably easy. It has worked so well on our hair too this past week. I am so impressed and never buying shampoo and conditioner again! The recipe for shampoo is 2 tablespoons bicarb soda to 16 tablespoons water. If your hair is still a little greasy, then the recipe suggests to add a little more bicarb. That's it!!! And the recipe for conditioner is 2 tablespoons ...
... meet again somewhere else in the world. I bid farewell to these wonderful people and to the lovely Anne for being an incredible host and walked off into the night to the bus stop to endure a 9 hour journey to Berlin. The Netherlands were done for now, but I promise to be back, especially to the beautiful city of Utrecht which everyone should see. I feel so lucky to have met some of the coolest people and there’s something about friends that make being in every ...
