... and fridge; come to think of it, pretty much every inch of the place was covered in the best graffiti. And the music, oh my goodness. Whoever those DJs were, I bloody loved them. They started off playing songs off the band's new album (obviously as this was the album launch party), which if you care to hear their sound, check out the video on http://www.jennifer-rostock.de/. And then it switched to a bunch of other German music that even if I didn't understand, ...
... sad at the same time. It just showed how hard life must have been for Berliners even after the war ended and in reality it wasn't until 1989 when the GDR allowed their citizens to freely visit the west again that pain resulting from WWII was released.
That night, my final night, we decided just to walk around the city and it was a nice finish to a pretty chilled out few days in Berlin hanging out with Sarah and her friends… then it was time for ...
Day 3 of 3 in Berlin. After a super late start in which I did lots of trip planning and finally got the blog restarted, I headed east to the Eastside Gallery. It is a large section of the Berlin Wall, which has become the site of both street art and more official art installations. It currently has an exhibit about walls, so it features huge pictures of walls that continue to divide people today, like the ...
... off on our way home. With only a few wrong turns (mostly my fault) we eventually made it back to Bec's hostel to drop her off and then mine was only a kilometre or so away from that.
The next day I saw there was a free walking tour in the city so after breakfast I rounded up a couple people from the bus and we wandered into town for the tour. The tour guide was a Dutch guy called Stefan (He pronounced it Stee-fan - typical freaky-deaky Dutchman) who was quite good. ...
... to go to in the world for a good few years now and there is even a 'sub-genre' of Techno called Berghain Techno, so we (I) had to go, but to say these guys are a little funny with their door policy is putting it mildly - there seems to be no rhyme or reason as to why some people get in and some people don't, we tried last time and failed.......and guess what, the same happened this time.
But it all worked out well in the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Park Plaza Wallstreet Berlin
This is a lovely hotel with excellent staff. The hotel has a great bar and excellent food. Rooms are modern and clean.
Spent 3 nights at this hotel 25-28th of September.
Im Oktober 2006 verbrachte ich 2 Nächte im Park Plaza Wallstreet. Ich kann das Hotel eigentlich nur weiterempfehlen für alle, die eine zentrale Lage wünschen, aber etwas ruhiger abseits vom ganz grossen Trubel übernachten wollen. Das Hotel liegt direkt an der U-Bahn-Haltstelle 'Märkisches Museum' (U2) und man ist somit in nur wenigen Minuten beim Alexander- oder Potsdamer Platz.
I booked two Executive rooms at this hotel for 3 nights in September and got a good rate booking direct through the hotel's website. Whilst both rooms were of a good standard the double was larger and better equipped than the twin having a bath tub as well as shower in a separate bathrrom not just a glass enclosed area of the bedroom.
My husband and I and two friends stayed at this hotel from 17th-21st August 2006 and had a really great experience. As other reviewers have said, this is a new hotel, in a quiet district but with 2 underground stations literally at either end of the street, we also used the local bus service ( turn right out of the hotel and right again for the bus stop, number 248 will take you to Alexanderplatz where the TV Tower is worth a visit, the views of the city are superb and there is also a revolving restaurant if you want to eat. Entry costs 8 euros and the queues were quite long, so get there relatively early. We got an excellent deal of 68 euros a night for the hotel, including breakfast, room upgrade and 25% off dinner in the hotel restaurant. Check in was easy , we had arrived early but were allocated our rooms immediately, and the staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. Particular thanks go to the bar staff who were excellent., full of information about the city and tips on where to eat etc. Breakfast in the hotel was really good, with both hot and cold selections ( fresh fruits, juices, yoghurts, cereals, pastries, cold meats, cheeses, salads, a big variety of breads and rolls, bacon, sausages, boiled and scrambled eggs and it really set us up for the day. You'd have to be really fussy not to enjoy the selection on offer. We bought 72 hour welcome cards which cost 22 euros each and gave us access to the whole transport system and also discount offers on lots of attractions in the booklet which you get with the tickets. Your tickets only have to be validated the first time you use them. As others have said there are restaurants within walking distance of the hotel (walk out of the hotel, cross over the street, turn left and on the bridge there is an Indian reastaurant, across the road are 2 others also, one right on the corner, and another across the bridge) and if you enjoy walking Alexanderplatz is only a 10-15 minute walk away. Berlin is a fascinating city, steeped in history and well worth a vist and we thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone planning a trip there.
Just had a smashing mid-week break in Berlin . We found this hotel on Hotels.com that was offering 'buy two nights get the third free' incuding a free upgrade to an executive room.
When we booked this hotel, I was surprised at how few reviews there are for it - and therefore how low its ranking is for Berlin hotels on Trip Advisor.
Just returned from a long weekend, two nights, at the Wall-Street
Stayed in this hotel a couple weeks ago, stayed for 3 nights. Had an great deal (€70) a night, including breakfast....the check in was very fast, the staff was helpfull...the breakfast was really good, good buffet...the room was good size and clean....just had an issue with the botles of water...arriving late at the hotel after a long trip, i dicieded to have some water( there was 2 botles of water, 1 still 1 sparkling) and a botle of wine...so i had some still water...next day when arrived to the room from a long sightseeing day, found a receipt for the botle of water( € 4)...When i stay at other hotels, they all have free water, wines, buiscuits, ect....but never been charged...so then when doing the check out told reception manager about the situation and then the bill was removed from the final bill..
We have just returned from a 5 night stay in the Park Plaza Walstrasse Berlin. The hotel was opened in April this year. It is modern, bright & well designed. The hotel has a bar, restaurant, sauna & fitness suite, although the fitness suite was closed during our stay as there had been some issue with the equipment.
