... We had dinner at a lovely cafe in the Volkspark with Ramona who had been my roommate on my Russia Contiki back in 2012 . It was great to catch up with her and she introduced us to the "Berliner Weisse" a drink mainly found here in Berlin which is a type of beer with a flavoured syrup added - my favourite was the red raspberry flavour! On our third day we took the train out to Potsdam for a day trip and to visit San ...
... I could have gone inside. Another really neat building was the congress building. Today it is a reconstruction because it was burned down by the Nazi's at the beginning of WWII, but it was still really cool. It has this new glass dome on top that has a great view of Berlin. We didn't have time to climb it though. Many other buildings we saw were also reconstructions. So much of Berlin was destroyed in the war. The reconstructions didn't look new though. They made them ...
... the people on the west were.
Get this: The west berlin fire brigade, in the first weeks of the wall, stood ready at the wall with nets…to catch anyone who tried to escape.
Faith in humanity. Restored.
And the most gorgeous stories, that I cannot relay…purely because I won’t do the wording of them justice.
There was one though, about a ...
... At about 7.30pm we received a call from the one and only Julien! He had finally arrived from Amsterdam to come and adventure with us. We picked him up from the station and introduced him to our new pad. He was very impressed too. The rest of the evening was spent cooking up a delicious dinner of vegetables and pasta, planning the next few months, drinking beer on the balcony and catching up. The weather is perfect here. The nights are about 20 ...
... called Cancun. I ordered a burger because I wanted to feel full or stuffed. The food was good. The only issue was after when we had to pay. The waiter was annoyed that we wanted to split the bill. That's about the 3rd terrible customer service I've had here. They seem to be quite abrupt. We continued walking around and taking pics of ...

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.
