Today I mostly did a Rick Steves' walking tour of the main sights in Berlin. It was a beautiful day with lots of sunshine, although a little chilly.
My first stop was the Reichstag, about a 10 minute walk from my hotel. It's Germany's Parliament building. And it has a big glass dome on the top that I planned to walk up. That was not to be …
Today I did a different sort of walking tour - a guided one! We went around to see all the Third Reich sites in Berlin and I learned lots of history. And so will you!
Oh, and I should warn you that I posted some graphic and disturbing pictures from my later visit to the Holocaust Memorial museum. So skip them if you like, but it's really …
... ago. The tour was excellent and our guide was so fantastic, but we were all quite mentally drained after a whole day walking around there learning about these awful things. So we had a nice relaxing quiet evening for our last night in Berlin. Ash and I headed on a dinner date to an awesome restaurant/bar not far from our hostel and had the most amazing pork knuckle ever!!! My actual best meal this entire trip (even better than the oktoberfest pork knuckle). Ash and I both got ...
... until I see them. I think that when we're working we just disolve ourselves in our work and are too exhausted to organise something that may take a little more effort. Now I'm making a promise to myself - I won't let that happe n again. On the last two nights I was in Berlin I went out wJeemy and three of his lovely friends who he's travelling with. they had already been travelling Europe for a month and seemed a bit exhausted. But travelling is definitely ...
... The infirmary was also used to conduct scientific experiments, which in reality, were simply torture. The mortuary was next door and there people only received an autopsy if the SS thought it would be an interesting case. The mortician had to decide the cause of death for every prisoner, but the SS man in charge of the person was also allowed to give a reason. Oddly enough, out of the list of about 8 things they would choose from as a cause of death, death by ...

Historical Traveler Reviews NH Berlin Friedrichstrasse
My boyfriend and I just returned from a weeks stay in wonderful Berlin at the Jolly Hotel Vivaldi. The hotel was definitely more than we expected, since we got a good deal (85 Euro pr. room pr. night), we thought our room would reflect that. But the room was wonderful with a beautiful view of Friedrichstrasse and the trainstation. A great bathroom with shower and tub! The location could not have been better, charming cafés right next door, located in a great shopping area, and in walking distance to many main attractions. Futhermore the neighbouring trainstation with U bahn and S bahn was very practical. The only negative thing to say about this hotel is that they charged too much for the breakfast buffet (17 Euro pr. person pr. day), the price was so high that we chose not to eat at the hotel, but instead at the nearby restaurants or bakeries, which by the way was no trouble at all and so much cheaper!
All in all this hotel made our stay just about perfect. I recommend it to anyone who wants a great stay in Berlin!!
Great hotel in the centre of Berlin
Stayed there last week on a short break. The hotel is brand-new and with all the comforts of a 4-star hotel (porter, in-room safe, sweets at night, etc.) for a very reasonable price. I booked early and paid only EUR96 a night for a double room! We checked in at noon as we made an early arrival in the city. They switched around a few reservations to find a room available immediately for us, which was great after a 5.30am start!
The reception staff was extremely helpful. The rooms were immaculately clean. Even though we were in a quite busy area of Berlin with a major train station next door, the sound-proofing was perfect. We couldn't hear a thing! Very important for us in a hotel. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
Most helpful reception staff ever encountered
Booking a long weekend in Berlin for myself, husband and a couple of good friends in May 2005 could not have been made easier by the exceptional staff at the Jolly Vivaldi. They went out of their way to assist when trying to arrange the booking and the service was equally good during our visit.
The manager should be congratulated on the quality of his reception staff.
The hotel is perfectly located for visiting the main attractions in Berlin and is just by an underground and mainline station - the modern rooms were very well soundproofed so no noise. The river is only around the corner where there are plenty of nice eating places and just across the road from reception is a very good typical German eating house.
This hotel is just perfect for a weekend break.
The Perfect stay...
Spending 4 days in Berlin at the Jolly. Absolutely perfect. Brand new building, brand new rooms, excellent room cleaning and service. Amazing Location, few meters from "U-Bahn" underground station and in the heart of the shopping and historical area. Only a bit disappointed because of the trainee people at the Desk: not so smart and bad english spoken!!
Smart and clean in a great location
My husband and I and two teenage boys stayed here for three days in October 2004. It is in a great location right by Friedrichstrasse station, within walking distance of lots of major sites such as the Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag, Unter den Linden and Museum Island. The rooms were scrupulously clean and the service was faultless, i.e. helpful but not obtrusive. The double (triple? quadruple?) glazing kept out the sound of the railway. We didn't bother with the breakfast as it seemed overpriced when compared with the many breakfast establishments in Berlin. We liked one near the hotel on (I think) Georgenstrasse going east. Oranienburgerstrasse (also within walking distance) was good for budget restaurants of many different nationalities.
This hotel is right by Friedrichstrasse station in an extremely convenient location. It is new with tasteful, modern decor and the room I stayed in was extremely comfortable and spacious. The staff were amongst the best I have encountered in any hotel and were friendly, polite and very helpful and quick to respond to any requests. I would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay there again on my next visit to Berlin.
This hotel is awesome! I stay there every time I go to Berlin. It has kind of a minimilistic feel to it, althought it has everything you could ever need and its exceptionally clean. I usually get the "run of the house room" rate which means I get assigned a room type at check-in because its cheaper that way, but every room I've stayed in has been great. I usually arrive at 12 - 1pm and every time I've been told a room is ready for me to check-in, no waiting until 3pm.
The hotel is right accross the street from Berlins Friedrichstraße train station which is pretty much the main station in the city. You can get to any place from it. Leave through the other door of the hotel and you are right at the steps to go down to the U line subway which runs north south. I once got a room facing the train station, and I was worried about the noise...but I couldnt hear a thing seriously. Staff are friendly and speak english.
I'm off again in 10 days to Berlin... and I'm already booked in this hotel again!
I spent 2 weeks in four cities in europe and this hotel was by far the most amazing. From walking in you think you have entered a Ritz Carlton with flowing water all over, helpful multlingual staff and superbly dressed bellmen. Every room is equipped with a heated towel rack and more goodies then one good possibly need i.e. creams, soaps, even q-tips! The television recieved tons of channels and a speaker is located in the shower so you never have to miss Richard Quest on CNNi. Being an Italian chain the pasta was superb the one night I ate there. Best of all you are a three minute walk from the Brandenburg gate and 10 seconds from the MAIN rail station in Berlin (Every s-BAHN line crosses through here!) This place is the real deal, and I'm interested to see what others think!
