... temperatures. Bio Saunas. Cold water plunges, buckets, showers and hot and cold foot therapy. Fresh air rooms and sauna meisters! We also love the sauna so of course...when in Germany....We treated ourselves to the Mosel Therme in Traben-Trarbach and it was heaven for both mind and body.

We walked past the current building of finance which was historically used political building and is the site where the family escaped over the Berlin wall with ziplines. Across the street was the site where the headquarters for the SS and Gestapo were built and later destroyed. The Topography of Terror is the reminder of the horrors that was planned from this site and a few remains of the basement where ...

My Russian lesson was in a Turkish bar just up the road. Quite a friendly owner. He had one of those electronic darts machines with the ****** plastic tips. I gave him a game then we played triples with another bloke with the loser paying for a round. I started off aiming for the triples on the left side but some of them didn't register so I changed to triple twenty... first dart - triple twenty! I didn't win but I did ...

An early morning doner kebab was much needed and then we went into a bar for a couple of hours. It was light when we emerged and we got home around 5.30am. Sunday morning I got up around 11.30am and we put in place a plan for the day. We wanted to hire a bike for me but everything is closed ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ku' Damm 101 Berlin
Excellent 3 star hotel
A hotel with a unique character and design to the last detail, central yet quiet. Friendly, english speaking staff. Very clean and warm rooms with heated bathroom floor and free sat tv. Rich buffet breakfast with a view from the 7th floor. Stylish lounge bar with a wide range of cocktails, some cold dishes and cool dj tunes until 2 am (perfect for several nightcaps, as late in the evening there's nothing else open within walking distance). Bus stop outside hotel, buses run every 2-3 minutes for most directions. Taxi rank across the street. Overall, excellent quality for a 3 star hotel. Would certainly stay there again.
We spent the past week in Berlin and thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Ku'Damm. The room was spacious (for a European hotel) and comfortable. The hotel staff is friendly, efficient and very attentive. Breakfast was fantastic, with a great view of the city from the restaurant. It's a few minutes walk to the subway, but there are some nice shops and restaurants nearby as well. We highly recommend it and would most definitely stay there again ourselves.
Ku damm Hotel
I was for three days in hotel Ku Damm 101, following positives reactions cited in you site and comments from Condé and Nast travelers.
Very disappointed indeed. A noisy room, a cold and non welcomed ambient, lack of any information point for tourists.
Not so well situated. At the end the price is nothing good.
A sad story
Just got back from a trip to Berlin (Nov '04), and I have to say we loved this hotel! It's fairly cheap compared to an equivalent hotel in London, and the attention to detail is great. We paid around £70 (around E110) per night for a Superior class room, which while not huge, was spacious, stylishly designed and very comfortable. The (inclusive) breakfast included the typical German breads, cheeses and sliced meats, but also had cereal and hot foods for those so inclined.
New, nice & central
I stayed at this hotel September '04. A German friend recommended it. He said that it was where other Germans stay. In other words, it's not at all "touristy." The staff was so nice and helpful. I loved the decor. It was very sleek and modern. Also, there are many restaurants & shops all within walking distance.
We stayed at Ku Damm 101 for a two nights and we could not have been more pleased with the hotel. Everything is absolutely spot on; the staff, the lobby, the room, the bar and especially the spa. On arrival the staff spoke perfect english and were very friendly and efficient. The hotel itself is very hip but not uncomfortably so and our room was beautifully furnished and comfortable. Not being familiar with Berlin we were pleased to find that the location is very central with lots of great restaurants and bars to choose from within a few blocks.
I think the best measure of how much we liked this hotel is our desire to return in the very near future, and to recommend it to all our friends.
Loved this hotel. Clean, stylish, hip. Reasonable rates. Reminded me of The Standard in LA. Very minimalist and mid century style at the same time. Large rooms. Comfortable. Great breakfast buffet. Incredible tea selection. Take advantage of the Well Being spa with lemongrass scented sauna. Clean and inviting. I am an allergy sufferer. The staff had noted this in my file and my room was absolute perfection with comfortable beds. We were given an excellent promotional rate. We had not booked but walked in off the street and paid 91 euros a night for a spacious double w/ breakfast. You can surf the net in the lobby without charge. Very convenient for checking your email. Instead of keeping the room after the noon/2 p.m. checkout, the staff suggested we relax in the well being spa before our plane back to our home base. This was even better than going back to our room. We showered, had a sauna and laid out in the comfortable spa room. Very calming. We definitely will return to Ku'Damm 101.
Great value, very stylish
Super efficient, high-design, high-tech hotel in a retrofitted building on the quiet western end of the Kurfurstendamm -- five minute walk SBahn Charlottenburg; UBahn Adenauerplatz. Very helpful staff took care of several unanticipated needs. Rooms were purposefully austere but very clean and super stylish; wonderful bathrooms with heated floors.
Hip bar off lobby. Wireless internet to all rooms for reasonable rates.
Amazing breakfast buffet on building's 7th floor with 270 degree views of the city. Great value -- highly recommended.
