... mallowpuff like treat. It was a very soft marshmallow more like a sweetie pie. Was very yummy. Carli and Anja had some local thing which was similar to Vetkook in South Africa. Next necessary item was mulled wine which and I branched out and tried a white wine version. Was good but not as nice as the red wines. We bought a few things including our secret santa presents for the tour group.
As we walked back to the tube station, we witnessed what appeared to ...
... cream, butter, and gravy sauces and served with a side of deep-fried potatoes or various other forms of carbohydrates and fat. It was so delicious! Monday we went to dinner at the home of one of her colleagues, Helene, a veterinarian from Belgium who has also worked throughout Africa doing various fascinating things. She made amazing chanterelle mushroom pasta and a scrumptious fresh salad with cheese and walnuts. Then on Tuesday we ate at a place that serves only ...
... we could hear the crowd chanting for their team. It was a real buzz how loud they were.
We managed to easily find our section and row but not our allocated seats so we just sat in some empty ones. We were up pretty high and the view we had was amazing. We could see the entire football arena and to the left of us was where all the mad fans were!!
The section behind the goals undulated and moved to the rhythm of the chanting. It was a sea of blue and white, ...
... or hurt by the Nazis and the war. It was simple, haunting and touching. Also throughout Berlin you find crosses memorializing the people who died attempting to escape and a lovely park area to remember the suffering of the Roma people. Givers me hope! After the heavy history lesson we made our way to the Spree river to take a quick cruise. The weather was beautiful and the beer was cold. Perfect! One of the things that struck me was the similarity between the Champs Eyles in ...
We started the day in class (again). After class, Megan and I grabbed a doner kebap, because it could potentially be our last one since we are heading to France tomorrow! After a delicious lunch, we headed to Galleries Lafayette, a high end department store in Berlin. We were given a tour and were shown the store's procurement process as well as marketing strategies. From the store, a few of us headed to the ...

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.
