Travel Times 40 - 20 June 2014
This was our first time visiting the city of Berlin. The place is a history book. Our hotel was Winters Hotel at Check Point Charlie so that pretty much says where we stayed. We were less than a block from the fabled landmark. So we'll make that our first stop here. Remember, …
... as the other cities I've been too and it's very very busy. The next day I did a tour of Sachsenhausen concentration camp. It wasn't as well preserved as Dachau and I was part of a very large group, but the guide was very knowledgeable and I have very much enjoyed the history of these places. It's very different to be in a place see where atrocities were performed than to hear about them in a classroom. On the tour I met 2 Aussie girls who were staying at the same hostel and ...
... You were able to see the living conditions and learn about some of the people who had lost their lives in such a horrific way. It is amazing that anyone survived, truly a testament to the human spirit. They keep these camps open as museums to ensure that history is not forgotten and repeated. Germans are very conscious of accepting and dealing with their ...
... she asked Rita if we could go home. We got home and I knocked out straight away. Nadzha stayed up for a bit longer to talk with Greg then slept. I'm enjoying myself here and trying to let go and have a holiday. I know I'm supposed to be here because of all the miracles that "coincidentally" occur with my needs. It's very challenging living by faith. You definitely appreciate what's given to you but also for someone like me who ...
... we then decided as it was about 5:15 we might try and make it an early night as we had an early start the next day. So I suggested we just go and have a look at Checkpoint Charlie which was the border crossing between East and West. Turned out there was also a museum there featuring actual equipment used in ecapes so we couldn’t resist it and decided to have a look since it didn’t close until 10pm. We had already read and heard about lots of the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Winters Hotel Berlin Mitte Am Checkpoint Charlie
The hotel is OK but, whilst we were there, a mobile phone went missing from our room. We reported this to the manager who promised us that she would follow it up and get back to us. Since we were going home that day she took an e-mail address and assured us that she would contact us the next day. We have not heard back from her at all. We do not know what happened to the phone, but the fact that she didn't bother to contact us is entirely unsatisfactory.
The hotel is approx a 15 minute taxi ride from Tempelhof airport and 30 minutes from both Berlin-Tegel and Schonefeld airports. The hotel is star rated as 3.5 but only misses being 4 star by the fact that the restaurant is not open for dinner in the evening.
Very nice hotel
Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights on a recent business trip to Berlin. Very nice rooms, extremely comfortable. Staff extremely friendly. Ate breakfast at hotel each morning and was very pleased with the spread. Nice location, close to subways but front desk will also call you a cab and one is there in less than 5 minutes. Make sure to carry hotel address with you when you're out if you want to take a taxi back as not many drivers seemed to know the hotel (it's fairly new). Was disappointed that there wasn't any gym (but that's really my only complaint).
This was a great hotel. Very clean, quiet and the hotel staff very friendly and helpful and spoke English. The hotel was in a great location, not far from Checkpoint Charlie, we were close to 2 train stations and could walk to potsdamer square (25 minute walk) My daughter and I loved our room. They were not able to give us a non-smoking room however the room was fine as the hotel just opened in Sept /06. Breakfast was not included but you could pay 10 Euro per person to have a hot/cold breakfast just off the main lobby. We had breakfast there the first morning and opted to eat elsewhere after that. The room did not have a mini fridge which would of been nice however if i were to go back i would still book this hotel because of location, friendly staff and nice size and clean room I would highly recommend this hote.

My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. They allowed us to check in early. A non-smoking room wasn't available at that time so they let us visit a designated-smoking room before deciding whether we wanted it or not. There was absolutely no odor at all.
Great hotel, great location
This hotel only opened recently so everything was brand new. Rooms have a flat screen TV and ultra modern interiors.
Bed very comfortable, however annoying having a double bed with two single duvet covers!
Did not have breakfast at the hotel however many cafes and restaurants in the vacinity.
When leaving the hotel go left not right towards checkpoint charlie and there is a lovely argentinian steakhouse in the row of shops. Great value and big portions.
If I go back to Berlin would definately stay here again.
