          Needs free wifi (at least in common areas)

          Location is excellent, being right by Fredrichstrasse station giving easy, direct access to Hauptbahnhoff (main station) 1 stop and airport (about 35 mins).

          Most sightseeing and some drinking locations can be done on foot as per my itinerary below.

          Checkin was quick and easy. We chose a courtyard room which was lovely and quiet and curtains did a great job of blocking light, thus some quality sleep - especially when combined with nice mattress and duvet and a choice of pillows for the huge bed (actually two singles together).

          Pretty big room, with lots of toiletries provided and big bathroom

          We are Melia Silver Rewards card holders so enjoyed BOGOF breakfast (therefore 24E for the two of us). We treated this like brunch and ate a lot. The breakfast was very good with coffee served at table and the rest buffet style including hot options, although it felt we were in Spain and not Germany in terms of food served. I would not want to pay full price though as I think that is a lot of money for brekkie.

          Melia Silver are also supposed to benefit from free internet; however the hotel only partially honoured this as it gives 100mb free for 24 hours to one person as standard, and as a Silver member all they added was one hour extra free use. For a start I think in 2016 paid-for internet is a joke (especially in common areas), and for Silver members to not really get the benefits promised I think is pretty shabby. Shame on you Melia! However due to European Union roaming rules, using normal UK phone for internet is not the issue it once was (35p for 1mb).

          Tapas bar was good quality with a lot of sangria for two even in a 500ml portion; hotel bar was really nice and interesting beach style design. I would imagine this would be more popular with non-guests if they included free wi-fi as every other pub/restaurant/bar in Berlin includes this.

          Our itinerary was arrived about 8pm by train, then walked to Torstrasse bars and back (you could get a tram direct back from Rosenthaler Platz).

          Sunday: Short walk along river to Riechstag (booked online for free 12:45 slot), then Brandenburg Gate had Currywurst for lunch, Jewish Memorial, Hitlers Bunker, Potsdam Square, Sony Centre, Checkpoint Charlie, Topography of Terrors, Gendarmenmarkt, Rotter Sport shop, UBahn from Französische Str to Naturkundemuseum (short trip ticket E1.70), saw Bernauer Street Berlin Wall memorial (get here before 6pm closing), then U Bahn (again E1.70 ticket) from Bernauer Street to Alexanderplatz, saw the world time clock and big tower, walk past cathedral to Museum Island, then along Unter den Linden past book burning square and other buildings being renovated back to the Berliner Republik pub just the other side of the river from the hotel where we had a bit of German food and some beer at variable prices depending on demand! Back to hotel for some nice tapas and sangria (taking advantage of the 15E per room, per day credit you get if booking direct) and bed. This is quite a lot to do in a day (especially as we left hotel at 12:20) and we only went in the free attractions (which is most of them, except museum island and cathedral), but our only other day in Berlin was a Monday when most museums are closed.

          Next day after massive breakfast at hotel we took a look through the windows of Tränenpalast which is an old border crossing right by the hotel and looked interesting, then train to Charlotte palace, then U Bahn to Zoo stop, Kaiser-Wilherm memorial church, walk down Kurferstendam, looped round back to Zoo station then walked along side of zoo (saw rhino, llama, camel, ,and many birds) to Tiergarten - no time for beer garden :( - past nude sunbathers, to Victory Monument, then carried on down Tiergarten, back to Riechstag to nicely complete our trip to Berlin. Kebab, Pork Sandwich and Currywurst from Train Station and then train to Airport for 21:20 flight back to London.

          This was a great trip, made all the better by this hotel.

          ... a couple was getting married inside the church and they had the organ piano playing and the bells were ringing and it was all so beautiful. The inside of this church was mind blowning; it must have cost a fortune to build. You could also climb up to the top of the Dom and overlook the city. I also thought Berlin was kinda an ugly city until I saw it from above. I stayed up there for a pretty long time, just enjoying the view. Then I headed over to ...

Also the meat is not dripping with fat like the yiros we get in Australia. The salad looked really fresh and the place had a high turnover. Looked great for a snack.
          4. Hofpfisterei: this is a bakery that began in Bavaria, southern Germany, in 1331. Great bread. Again this can be ordered by the slice.

We went to Olaf’s restaurant for dinner and had an amazing schnitzel with vegetables (god I miss vegetables) for dinner, and a soft-centred chocolate pudding with vanilla bean panna cotta for dessert. Izzy, Rach and I shared a delicious bottle of rosť and the boys had some German beers. So good. Izzy had scored tickets to the ...

          ... I searched for an Internet cafe to print our bus tickets out. Did I tell you all that we are leaving for Czech Republic tonight? Off to see my lovely cousin Emily and her family. We found an Internet cafe somewhere down the road towards Alexander Platz and did our printing. We then returned home, packed our bags for Czech, made some rice paper rolls for the bus ride and cleaned up from the party. - not that there was much to do besides emptying the garbage bins. We then ...
