... trains at Alexanderplatz and we should have found a ticket machine there and gotten a ticket but our train was pulling in so we just jumped on it. Of course it is always a risk to ride public transportation without a ticket, and this time we paid for it. Two ticket checkers came on the train and we had to get off at the next stop and get a ticket for €40. I told him that the machine was broken but he said it ...

After a few weeks I get my invitation letter, so I am good to go... or not. For all you fellow Austrians; Have you ever been mistaken for Australians? Well guess what they changed my nationality to Australian. Of course you don't get a VISA with the wrong nationality on your invitation letter. So I got my new correct one just two weeks ago... pretty late don't you think?

After all this we had to venture back towards our hostel to prepare for our train to Slovakia tonight. Bought some snacks on the way, Sarah was lucky enough to find some Monster Munch chips! When we were in the last hostel some guys there had had these chips and she loved them so bought two packets to satisfy her longing for them! Headed back to the hostel, got online for awhile then we about our mission ...

... a cockroach the size of my face went running across the floor. I screamed and jumped on the bed, Joe killed it and I remained on the bed frozen with pterodactyl arms tightly clinging to my chest, probably a lemon pucker look on my face and having shivers every so often. Now I need to give you some background, I talk to spiders at my house they are a part of our family, I take ants outside and give them a better home I see no need to crunch them. But a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mercure Hotel Berlin Zentrum
If you are gay this is a great 2 star choice in the heart of the gay Schoenberg section. Gay bars are all over the place including the popular Connections. Apollo and Steam saunas are within walking distance. Gay Video store with cruise area down the street.
Excelent for city break
this is a small hotel very well located to visit the city. Staff was helpfull and and the rooms spacious and clean. Breakfast was above average and gave the energy needed to walk all day.
there are good restaurants 5 minutes walking. One Italian (in the same street in front of a video store) and one Caribenean.
A very good suprise.
Good place to stay
Ended up at this hotel as a last choice but was very impressed with what we got.
Breakfast was of a very good quality with plenty of choice. The rooms were basic but met their purpose. However, there was no air conditioning, which was noticeable in the hot weather.
Located fairly close to the centre of Berlin and is easily walkable to most areas.
Stayed at Scandhotel in 3/05. Very friendly and helpful Staff. They all speak English. Excellent Location. The room is good size and clean. I would definitely stay here again.
A Little Gem
Picked this hotel because of it's reputation for great breakfasts - and wasn't disappointed. The choice of food would put a lot of top-priced hotels to shame. As a bonus, the location was excellent for the KuDamm & KaDeWe. Room was small but comfortable, and surprisingly quiet seeing it was on quite a busy street corner. Lots of excellent bars & restaurants in the surrouinding streets too.
Stayed at the Scandhotel in June 2003.Excellent service, nice size room - I had a twin for single use.
Good choice at breakfast.Very good location, short walk to the metro trains.Friendly bars on the same street.
Tried this hotel for the first time this year and I would definitley use it again. Very friendly staff, English speaking. The room was a good standard - I think it was technically a single but it had a large bed, minibar, TV/Radio, ensuite with walk-in shower. Excellent breakfast served until 11 at weekends so ideal for those late nights in Berlin. Talking of which, the hotel is ideally located for the Schoneberg gay scene in FuggerStrasse and Motzstrasse. I was there for the Easter weekend and the clientele was mostly straight couples but quite a few gay guys too. Being Easter there was plenty of free chocolate available from the hotel too - what more can you ask for! The hotel is also very well located for the Ku Damm and the delights of the KaDeWe department store. Also just a few mintes walk to Viktoria Luise Platz U-Bahn station. I have stayed in cheaper hotels in this area but I think this hotel was worth the extra.
Caviar for breakfast
Cracking service, comfortable rooms(even the triples where you get a proper bed), they even put breakfast on early as we had to get a train to Poland. We were a large group of football fans and we thought we'd get iffy service, but we were actually treated like human beings, which makes a change. I'm going back there with my wife at Christmas.
