... we sat just behind her we could see how much coordination of hands & feet was involved & we were truly stunned at having such a lucky break. Finally she played a a series of variations which illustrated her points & after the recital somebody asked who wrote the variations. "I did", she said.
We then set out for the Jewish Museum about 2.5 km away & this again was fascinating & frustrating, in equal parts. It comprises an ...
... to head indoors. Inside weall separated - Kaya and Ben bought a few things and we met up later to head back home. Back home we hit the supermarket , bought a few things had a bite and decided to head back out and explore the Xmas markets together. They were so wonderful - lights , performances, stalls, people - the atmosphere there was amazing. I am so glad we were able to experience at least 1 Xmas market - ...
... When I took to the streets on my first morning it took me less than five minutes to not only know that I would need every single one of those days, but also to find the first evidence of the Wall itself. Outside Potsdamer Platz station are six original sections of the wall itself. They're not in their original location: they've been placed on top of the modern paved floor for display purposes, interspersed with information boards in between. But their positioning is ...
... sites along the way. Somehow we stumbled upon the Berlin Cathedral and Altes Museum where we laid on the grass and watched the world go by. Lucky we weren't in a rush! Another site we somehow came across was the Bebelplatz Memorial, an underground room of empty library shelves. The memorial pays homage to the events of May 10 1933, when the Nazi Party burned more than 20,000 books were burned in front of Humboldt University.
Having well and truly ...
... this scene down pact! On our third day in berlin we did the tourist thing, we went into town, saw the brandenburg gate, holocaust memorial and visited the museum. That night we met up with our Amsterdam friends James and Kane, we went for dinner and pre drinks at a small bar in town around 10pm, and then like the rule book states, we headed to the club at 2 and didn't get home until 9am. Such a good night!! But unfortunately this leaves not much to be said for our last ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Lux 11 Berlin
Your temporary house in Berlin
Great Place, great location! Do not expect to get 5 stars service at the reception. People at the reception definately have to learn how to smile. But after all, it is more appartment hotel than hotel so who needs extra attention from the reception. If this does not bother you then it is great place to stay: great decorated rooms, great shower, nice kitchen unit ( no need to rush for breakfast since you can make one yourself). Hotel located in the district Mitte which is full of nice restaurants, little cafes and great place to shop! Definately my place for the next visit to Berlin!
Dieses Hotel ist eins dieser hippen Designhotels wie man Sie in Berlin oft findet. Das kann gut oder auch schlecht sein.
The Lux-eleven just made top of my list of favorite hotels in Berlin, bumping The Q! to second place.
I have mixed feelings about this place. In the main, I enjoyed my stay at Lux 11, however I do not think I would return, at least not when the weather was warm.
The only comment I can give: GO THERE, FEEL IT, UPGRADE YOUR LIFE, DREAM THERE!!! However: I LOVE THIS HOTEL.
this hotel is one of the hip designer hotels they have here in Berlin. Could be good - could be bad.
We just returned from a 5 day trip to Berlin. I've visited a lot of cities and stayed in many hotels, but this one tops them all ! At some point it even became difficult to leave the room for sightseeing, as it was so great.
Stylish and cool place to be...
we have been first times in the hotel for a few days in december for x-mas shopping and for a business trip one week later. in overall rating this is for sure our place to be in the capital. we like that style very well, e.g. the open bathrooms, wooden floors, the goregeous rainshower and so many small things like those personalised flip-flops (never seen before!!!) the brand new opened restaurant is very hip and offers a great range of all. the spa is not open yet, however, there's a very familiarized AVEDA shop directly in the hotel.
the hotel staff is very, very friendly and helpful, knows all about the city and we have been very pround to get really the best tips for the hottest spots to go, like insiders! we recommend this place to everybody and we will be back soonish!
I stayed at Lux 11 in Aug 2005 just as the hotel has opened. We booked an excellent offer with Amex, 3 nights for the price of 2 & we got one of the biggest suites for the price of a regular room. The suite was very well designed & stylish - one of TV was not working, which was no big deal. Some of the trimming seemed to have been rushed in time for the opening - but I put this down to teething problem. The shower was great it forms part of the bedroom. The kitchen area was well thought & had lots with coffee & tea. The service was a bit hit & miss (which I find with design hotels) - I am not used to having to wait around. The fitness area was not open when we stayed, which was a bit disappointing.
My husband and I stayed at Lux 11 this September. We booked one of the biggest suites, which was very stylish but also had a "hospital-like" vibe. All of the rooms in the suite were quite stark and bare. An interesting thing is that the bathroom is open to the bedroom, so a family wanting to book a suite should be concerned about privacy. The rooms were nicely stacked with coffee, tea and plenty of bathroom amenities. As for the service, I also have mixed feelings. When we first got to the hotel, we spent about 10 minutes at the front desk, being utterly ignored by the receptionist. Later on during our stay, our experienced was much better, as the staff changed. I will say that the hotel is in a great location; very close to shops and restaurants.
