Ibis Berlin City West
Travel Blogs from Berlin
... br> The last month has gone in what's seemed like a couple of blinks of the eye. One minute I'm at the Hungaroring in Budapest watching the Grand Prix in person, next minute I'm getting off a bus into the dark of late evening in Berlin. Berlin was one of the places I've been most excited about. It's unmissable for any amateur historian.
I'd allocated four nights for Berlin and with the bus to Warsaw not leaving until 9:30pm on my last day, I would have four full days ...
... I did change the roll things went flying across the room. Interestingly enough Mom and I had separate rooms. My room had two twin beds and Mom had one bed... and the bathroom, closet, etc. Each of my beds had a night stand with a small lamp. Nice, but on one side there was no power outlet for the light. I guess it was for looks only. Of course, Mom had a night stand with no lamp, but had a plug. We rearranged a bit. At least there was a plug by my bed for the CPAP. Walls and carpets ...
... I didn't realise they hadn't gotten to bed until 4am after finally finishing their laundry. My panicked knock at 6.30am probably wasn't on their wish list. But Nikita (in my room) had been packing her bags and it was under a mantle piece. I was in the shower when I heard a pained "farrrrkkk!" you know the one when you yell out from the bathroom what's wrong and get no response, you know it ain't good. It wasn't good.... She had hit her head on the way up on the ...
... wait until I get back to Germany for Ocktoberfest to sample that.
Successful trip and a great Christmas!
We would certainly love to go back to Berlin if the chance arose. We missed out on the tour where you get to explore more of the new city and get to see the art and murals everywhere simply due to lack of time we had. I would have loved to see that and explore some of the many museums on Museum island!
Until then, Auf Wiedersehen!
... start of the tour that he spoke really fast – he was even talking too quickly for me to understand some of his words, I don’t know how the English-as-second-language people went. But no one complained, and I think that’s because the wealth of information that Mike had to impart definitely came across. In the end we went over our 4-hours and ended on just over 4.5 hours, and although we were all a little tired and starting to get a bit chilly as it ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
Not a good hotel. Maybe i expect too much from a hotel, but I expect as a minimum for there to be free wifi and maybe a kettle in the room. But this place had neither of these. The hotel itself was clean and the staff were friendly but compared to all the other hotels I have stayed in, this one seemed to be one of the worst.
The location is a bit grotty. It isn't far from a metro station, but it is in quite a residential area.
Stay here if you just want to sleep, but not if you need to use the internet. Yes their rooms are cheap, but the amount of extras you then have to pay when you get there makes the stay just as expensive as if you had gone to a more expensive hotel.
