... message about the future of that part of the Wall. I would have thought that it would have been designated an UNESCO World Heritage Site (maybe it has?) and as such would be untouchable, but it seems not.
Unfortunately a lot of the glorious murals on the Wall have been vandalized with graffiti (I know, it's ironic, but there's a big difference between a commissioned piece of art of an internationally important site and a daft tag of someone's initials). One of ...
... Our bike tour finished with a stop at the Tiergarten where there is a beer garden, all the people on the tour had dinner together which was fun.
The next day we did a big museum orientated day. We visited the famous Pergamon museum first and saw some huge sculptures and parts of buildings from biblical times and before. There was one large facade that had been ordered to be built by King Nebukenezah (spelling wrong!) quite amazing to see things from that long ...
... every place we stay haha I don't think I have taken a hot shower on the weekend this whole time abroad haha
The next morning we woke up early and began exploring the city...I wish I could move to Berlin. I could see myself living there for sure. It is so full of history but in a different way than any of the other cities we have been to. It is crazy the same concept of being rich of culture can be so diverse across the neighboring countries. ...
... this is the site where the first potato was introduced to Germany! Apparently the King introduced it, hoping that it would be a good source of food for his people. But, the people were suspicious of this strange new food that grew in the ground, thinking it to be evil and rotten. So, the King had it planted in his private garden in a poorly-protected corner, secretly hoping that people would come in and steal it... which they did, and of course the rest is history ...
... on our trip in Austria. After dropping our stuff off in our room, we headed straight back out in search for a restaurant for dinner. We ended up having a standard curry at an Indian restaurant. After which we headed back to the hostel where we were greeted by a Canadian roommate, Colin, who was out working in Berlin. A top guy he’s given us the lowdown of what to do and see in ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Johann Hotel Berlin
¡Así es como me gusta!
ˇEs el lugar de moda en Berlín!
El Johann lo tiene todo: Está impecable de limpio, muy bien gestionado, moderno y con gusto, tiene un toque de estilo muy berlinés, el mejor desayuno (de hotel) en Berlín, el personal es simpático y sabe lo que los viajeros realmente necesitan, es céntrico y sobre todo, es el mejor lugar para alojarse en Berlín.
ˇPor favor no lo estropeéis!
Estuvimos alojados en el hotel Johann 2 noches en mayo del 2007. ¡La primera impresión fue la auténtica! Llegamos una cálida y preciosa mañana de primavera y la calle estaba muy tranquila. De verdad te daba la impresión de que estabas en la mejor parte de Berlín, no en las zonas turísticas de Mitte o en una calle llena de hoteles. Aunque llegamos pronto, pudimos entrar en nuestra habitación directamente. Como nos habían perdido el equipaje, el amable personal nos ayudó con todo lo que necesitamos mientras tanto, y llamaron y preguntaron por él de parte nuestra. La habitación era silenciosa y estaba limpia. Reservamos una habitación pequeña y no cabe duda de que era suficiente para nosotros dos. ¡Comparada con las habitaciones de tamaño normal de París y Nueva York era grande!
We stayed at Johann hotel for two nights in may 2007. The first good impression lasted! We came there a warm, beautiful springmorning and the street was so calm. It really felt like you were in the best part of Berlin, not the touristic parts of Mitte or in a street filled with hotels. Even though we arrived early we got access to our room directly. As our luggage was lost the friendly staff helped us with what we needed in the meantime and also called and asked for our luggage for us. The room was quiet and clean. We booked a small room and that was definately enough for us two. Compared to the normal sized rooms in Paris and NY it was big!
Nous sommes restés 2 jours à l'hôtel Johann en mai 2007. Notre première bonne impression s'est avérée juste. Nous sommes arrivés par une belle matinée de printemps et la rue était merveilleusement calme. Nous avions l'impression de nous trouver dans le meilleur quartier de Berlin, loin des coins touristiques du centre ou d'une rue remplie d'hôtels. Bien que nous soyons arrivés de bonne heure nous avons pu prendre immédiatement possession de notre chambre. Nos valises ayant été égarées, un personnel sympathique nous a aidés à trouver ce dont nous avions besoin en attendant de les récupérer et a fait toutes les démarches nécessaires pour les retrouver. Nous avons réservé une petite chambre mais elle était plus que suffisante pour deux. Comparée à une chambre normale à Paris ou à New York elle était vraiment grande !
Loved this hotel, we stayed there for four nights, the rooms are wonderful, clean, heated bathroom floor, minimal, wnderful rooms that look the same as the website photos. The door to be bathroom does not give you a huge amount of privacy sound wise but this should not spoil your stay. The whole feel of the hotel is new and stylish. A great breakfast with bread, rolls, fruit, yoghurt, cheese, cereals, juice, tea, coffee, salmon, it just goes on.
Thats the way I like it!
This is the place to be in Berlin!
The Johann has it all: its spotless clean, very well managed, modern but tastful, has a very berlin-style flair, the best (hotel) breakfast in berlin, friendly staff who know what travelers really need, its central and above all its the best place to be in berlin.
Please dont spoil it!
We chose it because it looked like a nice, independently-run hotel with lovely minimalist-modern rooms, and that's just what it was. The rooms were beautiful, clean and minimal, even to the extent of having a rather less-than practical, frosted-glass sliding door that allowed a little too much of both sound and vision. Lovely hotel, though. The staff were friendly and helpful and it's in a nice area away from the hustle-bustle but an easy walk into the centre and close to the Jewish Museum, which is a must-see.
My husband, my in-laws, and I just spent a week in Berlin visiting family. We picked the hotel primarily based on location - it's a block away from my brother-in-law's apartment - and were amply rewarded for our choice. The hotel is lovely, funky, comfortable, and impeccably clean. The staff are friendly and helpful, the bar is great, and the neighborhood is very quiet and pleasant. Breakfast was served daily in a sunny back room, and the fare was hearty and typically German. Lots of different brochen, fruit salad, cheeses, meats, lox, cereal, yogurt, soft-boiled eggs, vegetables - everything you need to start the morning right.
The hotel is in a quite residential neighborhood a block away from the canal. The hotel is beautifully decorated with lots of space and warm colors. The staff is fantastic, friendly helpful and ready to help you with travel arrangements or to recommend a good restaurant within walking distance. The hotel provides and traditional German morning breakfast of fresh rolls, pumpernickel, assorted cheeses, meats, fresh fruits and cereals. This hotel is definitely worth the stay.
I stayed at the Hotel Johann for a week in May 2004. At the time it had only been open for 8 months. I had a fantastic room on the third floor (a double) which looked even better than the photos. (A real treat was the heated tile floor in the bathroom). The rooms were very clean and neat, and the room had ample windows which opened in various configurations, depending on how one wants air.
