Well here we are in Berlin, after a mammoth day's sightseeing! Started off with a fab breakfast at the hotel then went to their Technik Museum for the morning, seeing airplane, ship and car exhibits. Really interesting stuff although no tacky souvenirs spotted for Liz yet..... Went to the biggest model railway in the world (that we've seen anyway) …
... Sanssouci Park and saw all the nifty buildings. I loved the symmetry that they all had. After walking around for a few hours on already tired legs I headed back, successfully navigating the Berlin transportation system using the Metro map on my phone. I hung out for a bit before grabbing a quick dinner across the street. They had a 40 Euro minimum for credit cards so I had them charge me for $40 and give me the extra in cash. I got a great exchange rate and got to pay with my card! ...
... I got up and did a walking tour around Berlin and didn't get left behind! It was great. Our tour guide was fantastic and really knew his history, even things the Berlin nerd didn't know. We went to the obvious places, Berlin Wall, Brandenburger Tor etc. but we also went to the bunker scene. It was actually quite amusing, the place where one of the most dangerous people in history died was now a car park with a little sign. After the tour was over, we went to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mercure Hotel Berlin am Alexanderplatz
Having heard so much about Berlin and especially getting good reviews from 3 close friends about the Hotel Agon, I was really looking forward to staying there.
This hotel was just what I was looking for. Very good value for money.
I got the impression from the photos on the hotel's website that the rooms would be a little kitchier, but instead they were very modern. Rooms were definitely spacious and very clean.
Breakfast buffet was amazing.
Great Hotel, well placed and fairly easy to find - head for the TV Tower, and it's near there. Rooms are very generously sized and clean. Stayed there before 2 years ago, so knew what to expect.
We have just spent four days at this hotel. On arrival my heart sank the outside looks very depressing but once inside you are greeeted by friendly staff who are very helpful. Our rooms were spotless large and even the single rooms contained two beds! Breakfast was brilliant so much choice and we found that we never needed lunch!
The hotel is only 10 mins walk to Alexanderplatz which we loved
We would love to stay here again as it is great value for money. We stayed here with two teenagers who did not want to come home.
The Agon am Alexanderplatz is in fact a former east German (DDR/soviet) block!
Great location. From Alexanderplatz S Bahn take M1,2,3,4,or 5 one stop to the Hotel. Saves a longish walk with luggage. Bus 200 , great for sightseeing , also stops just across from the hotel. Hotel looks a bit bleak outside but pleasant reception with free access to Internet. Staff friendly and helpful. Place(free) to store luggage before check -in and after checking out. Only 2 lifts so sometimes quite a wait. Corridors have strip lighting that comes on as you pass and linoleum floors so not great impression. However once inside, the rooms are a pleasant surprise. Very clean, large and airy: one wall is all window leading onto a balcony with views of Alexanderplatz. Bathroom clean and great shower, towels changed daily. Heating was easily adjustable. One thing to note: although it was described as a double room (matrimoniale) it was actually a twin room with two very large single beds with individual quilts and sheets. Easy enough to push together but still 2 beds! The other rooms on our floor were the exact same arrangement. There was a completely new kitchenette area built in to the room with 2 electric cooking plates. No utensils or plates supplied but if staying for longer you could easily buy cheap coffee pot etc. No fridge but as it was minus 2° outside we just put wine on the balconey for a half hour to cool.
You get what you pay for
The review from our friend in Cardiff is good and a true reflection of this hotel, which is on the East side of the city. If you want somewhere that is basic, clean yet cheap then the Agon is the place for you. If you want 5* treatment then go elsewhere. The hotel is ideally placed for the Tram system, stop outside on Moll Strsse and the M5/M6 take you into Alexanderplatz Station (Ten minute walk). From the station you can get anywhere in the city. Staff were very nice and helpful, breakfast was cereal & cold meat buffet and sufficient. There are a couple of restaurants nearby. An excellent hotel and ideal location for the budget traveller. I would stay here again. Great value.
The Agon is situated in the former eastern side of Berlin, which accounts for the 70s Soviet architecture of the hotel and surrounding buildings. However, although it may not be pretty on the eye, it certainly gives you an impression of the Berlin of say 20 years ago.
We stayed at the Agon for 3 nights in November 2004. It is not a beautiful edifice (unless you like Communist tower blocks) nor luxurious on the inside - the corridors were reminiscent of a student hall of residence with lino floors and fluorescent lighting. However, on the plus side the room was extremely large for a city centre hotel - it could have done with more furniture to fill it. The shower was excellent. The buffet breakfast was diverse and popular. Get down there early to get the chocolate croissants. The hotel has a very good location only 5 mintues walk from Alexanderplatz. For the lazy there is a tram stop outside the hotel with trams linking to the main S-Bahn and U-Bahn station. Be warned that the trams start early and finish late. For the price we paid (GBP 35 per night) it was good value for money.
