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.

Bradley Cooper seemed amused by my audacious plan but he assured me that he'd never seen officers on public transport in Berlin.

One of the few synagogues to survive Kristallnact, it was badly damaged prior to, and during WWII and subsequently much was demolished; the present building on the site is a reconstruction of the ruined street frontage with its entrance, dome and towers, and only a few rooms behind.

... names come up on a wall about them DOB date of death and where. It will take 7 to 8 years for all the names to come up on the wall also they keep adding names as more are found. There was a que to get in and your bag goes through a xray machine as the people do at airports.

... screens down the road that leads to the gate. - Saw the memorial to the victims of the Jewish Holocaust. It is really clever and thought provoking. I really liked it! - Saw the site of Hitler's bunker where he hid out and then shot himself. It had 3m thick walls and ceilings that were so hard to demolish that the Soviet's just gave up and left it open as a bombed out site until parents discovered what their children were playing in and ...
