... the question of whether or not it has limited Germany's ability to heal. Well, perhaps not entirly, for as you have seen the healing process is extremely complex and is affected by numerous facets. But it could have certainly had a negative impact. Claiming ignorance defers conversation, and lack of conversation slows recovery and memory. There is no need to read between the lines of our history if it is open for discussion, and not hidden away.
... Damn, they ought to be paying me money for all these advertisements!
Up late this morning. Sandy went down to the massage place in the hotel to see if they could work on her back. Nice Oriental lady worked on her for an hour. She was sore from being roughed up (she says massage folks back home aren't that rough), but the lady said, "Sorry for hurt, but you be better...two days!" I tried to blog while Sandy was ...
... is a fortress that has endured countless invasions including Napoleon's assault against Prussia and most recently the Allied invasion of Germany. Its an impressive collection of buildings all protected by massive walls, buttresses, a moat and a crowning towel/rook called the Julius Tower. Unfortunately, the tower and other parts were under repair. After returning to Berlin, we visited the Alte Nationalgalerie on the Museum Isle, quite close ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Johann Hotel Berlin
¡Así es como me gusta!
¡Es 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.
¡Por favor no lo estropeéis!
¡Un hotel precioso!
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!
Como no había nadie en el vestíbulo a partir de medianoche, había una mesa con cerveza, vino, agua y aperitivos que te podías llevar a tu habitación y tú sólo tenías que apuntar en un papel lo que te habías llevado.
Lo mejor del hotel Johann era el desayuno tan maravilloso. Nosotros nos lo tomábamos fuera en el patio trasero, oyendo a los pájaros y leyendo el periódico.
Además de las cosas típicas había mucha fruta y verdura. ¡De verdad recomiendo este hotel a quien quiera alojarse en un bonito hotel en el centro de Berlín!
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!
As the lobby was unmanned from midnight there were a table with beer, wine, water and snacks that you could take to your room, and you only had to write down what you had taken on a paper.
The best thing with hotel Johann was the fantastic breakfast. We had it outside in the backyard, listening to birds and reading the paper. A lot of fresh fruit and vegetables along with all the usual stuff. I truly recommend this hotel to anyone who like a beautiful hotel in central Berlin!
Hôtel adorable !
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 !
Comme il n'y avait personne dans l'entrée de l'hôtel à partir de minuit, il y avait une table avec de la bière, de l'eau, du vin, des amuse-bouche que l'on pouvait emporter dans sa chambre, il suffisait de noter ce que l'on avait pris.
Mais le petit déjeuner est ce qui distingue le plus le Johann. Nous le prenions dehors, dans la cour tout en écoutant le chant des oiseaux et en lisant les journaux. Des tonnes de fruits et de légumes frais avec tous les plats classiques d'un petit déjeuner. Je recommande vraiment cet hôtel à tous ceux qui désirent se retrouver dans un établissement magnifique au centre de la ville !
Love this hotel
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.
Staff are very friendly and helpful. They will put valuables in a safe if required and there is a bar by the reception in the evenings.
The best tube to get is Prinzstrasse (about 7 min away) as the walk is nicer along the canal during the day. You can get into Central Berlin very easily. Hallesches Tor, the other tube station in the other direction has more lines going through it however but it's a bit further away. Don't forget to get your ticket stamped.
Kreuzberg has some great cool trendy bars which are wonderful.
We would definately stay at the Hotel Johann again, as the other reviever said please don't spoil it.
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.
A Jewel in Kreuzberg
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.
Staff members were always willing to call a cab, and the nearest U-Bahn station was only a few blocks away. We'll definitely stay here again when we come back!
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.
Great choice, Great staff!
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.
The staff was very pleasant and for the most part spoke English quite well. The desk person was always willing to suggest places in Berlin to explore. They even let me use their office computer every day to check emails from home!
This is a fantastic hotel for the money, especially considering the great breakfast spread that was included every day. Although it is a little "off the beaten track" it is within a ten minute walk to either of two subway stations, and is located on a quaint cobblestone residential street in the Kreuzberg district close to central Berlin.
I can heartily recommend the Johann, and will make it a point to stay there when I return to Berlin.
