... myself in Berlin and eager to learn more after learning it was during Hitler's riegn, the construction of the Berlin Wall, WWII even, that our grandparent (parents even) were alive..more so, what can only now be described as some of Berlin's most shockingly interesting and captivating history. Information regarding the location of the ...
From Celle, we turn dramatically and decisively east, first to Berlin, then into Poland and Lodz, so we'll be driving to the heart of the sunrise.
But first, we made a short detour. Whilst we were at the campsite at Liepzig, a very jolly German fellow came over to admire Red. He recommended that we should pay a visit to Wolfsburg where VW production first began, and to see the sights there. We followed his advice and became petrolheads for a day. First, we made our way ...
... our pocket, staring at intersections hoping a sign would materialise, and wondering where the F*$# is this bus stop. With painful faces, shuffling feet and constant uncomfortable jiggling of our packs we arrived at our terminal to complete the first of the formalities of our new people-moving-transport era. The process was repeated at the other end, where we sat on the bus with tired expressions guarding our pile of belongings, watching out the window hoping ...
... because I wasn't sure what all the bears around the city were. We learnt about the the Berlin Wall and saw where it was knocked down and about the double brick lines running where the wall was so so people cannot forget. The wall was there to block people from east to west Germany . We also learnt about Hitler I didn't pay much attention about Hitler because I didn't like the ...
... bought one, and the choice was: 1 squashed and somewhat soggy ham and cheese baguette, or we could have had one other unappetizing choice, yogurt or a highly touted "Icelandic" donut which proved to be heavy enough to use as a paperweight! We were comfortable enough with a free seat between us. Landed in Reykjavik pretty much at dawn, so the sunrise through the east window of the plane was worth seeing. Iceland is much as imagined. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ibis Styles Berlin City Ost
This hotel was in an up and coming area to the east of Berlin, very near a U-Bahn (underground) station. The hotel was modern and clean, the hotel staff were friendly, and the breakfast facilities were pleasant. The only downside were a party of students (with leaders) who were a bit on the raucous side; however the management soon resolved the issue. Would use this hotel again.
Loved Hotel Agon Frankfurter Allee
Easy access via U-Bahn to Samaritarstrasse, on Frankfurter Allee. Would suggest take S-Bahn from Schonefeld Airport, to Alexanderplatz, thence U-Bahn to Samaritarstrasse. A short walk then takes you to the hotel. The area beside the hotel appears run down with lots of graffitti but the hotel itself is new and clean with helpful staff.
The room we had was spacious and bright. Breakfast was continental style with lots of choice. We would recommend this hotel and will be visiting it again.
Have just arrived home after a 3 night stay in this hotel (March 13-16). After trawling the internet for hotels in Berlin this one seemed in a good location and reasonably priced. The room was an excellent size with a great power shower and plenty of storage space for clothes etc. Just a short walk from Samariterstrasse station. The breakfast was excellent too with plenty to choose from. I would definitely recommend this hotel as an excellent 3 star. It was clean, modern and the staff were friendly. As it was only a short walk from the main frankfurter allee there were plenty of choices of restaurants nearby. On arriving early evening we came across The Mona Lisa restaurant across the main street. Excellent meal and excellent value for money too with a lovely calm atmosphere. A great start to our holiday. Metro connections are very easy from here and great fun! This hotel was an excellent base for a stay in Berlin.
Excellent Value for Money
We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights 27 Feb to 1 March and are planning to go back again this summer. The hotel is in a quiet area less than 2 mins walk from Samariterstrasse underground station. Links to the city centre are excellent and we never had to wait more than a few minutes for a U-Bahn.
The hotel itself is very good, especially for the price. We paid £33 per night from Lastminute.com for a double room including breakfast. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable with a very good bathroom/shower. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The breakfast buffet included a good selection of breads, cheese, cold meats, cereals etc... and we couldn't fault it. There is also a 24 hour bar, which for a hotel was reasonably priced.
Would definitely recommend this hotel.
Berlin hotel eastern style
weve been to berlin twice in 2004.In june we stayed in the Hotel berlin which was very good but later in the year we stayed in the eastern side at the cheaper agon frankfurter allee.Though not as swish its rooms are good, clean with a decent power shower. However because its smaller it was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is excellent, and there is anice bar to get a beer after sightseeing. Its just round the corner from a metro station so you can access all areas.NB Potsdam is a must if you have the time.(about 30 mins on train)
There are lots of restaurants on the frankfurter alle (italian,indian,greek,chinese and german!)
If you do stay here check out the small bar (kneipe) round the corner which gives you the true spirit of the east.Looks very small,and gets packed then you go downstairs to the loo,walk along this very long corridor and there is this hidden underground disco!!
We have already booked again for May. For good prices see expedia.
Any other info please ask.
Quiet Hotel - Good Location
Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in October. It's located in a residential area within 2 minutes walk of Samariterstrasse U-bahn on Frankfurter Allee.
The hotel is only about a year old so everything is still brand new. Our room was spacious, clean and warm, with good facilities. The staff are friendly and you can sit it the reception area and have a quiet drink.
Breakfast was decent and there was usually a good choice of foods, with a coffee pot on your table.
There is a Plaza nearby which has about 4 restaurants in it (there's no restaurant in the hotel). We tried the German and Italian restaurants here, which were both good. We also found another Italian restaurant further down Frankfurter Allee, called Mona Lisa. The food there was lovely and extremely good value for money.
The hotel is away from the main sights of Berlin but easily accessible by U-bahn 24 hours a day.
This is definitely a hotel I'd recommend and stay in again.
Very nice stay in the hotel. Easy to find and close to the underground station (Samariterstr.). Staff was helpful and made good suggestions for dinner and leisure.
Rooms are very different from each other. Take care you don't get a small one, they're really narrow.
We want to visti again very soon!
Excellent budget hotel! The hotel opened less than a year ago. Very clean, new firniture, very friendly and helpfull staff and generous breakfast! Excellent value for money...We definatelly want to visit again
Good base in Esatern Berlin
If you are on your own and need a place to stay in Berlin for a weekend, this is your place.
Nearby to the communist monuments of Karl Marx Allee and the Stasi Museum, the guest gets a unique veiw of what East Berlin was like 15 years on. Alexanderplatz is nearby along with all train/airport connections, too. A little dark at night, but very safe and clean. The downstairs grotto bar is simply amazing, and the breakfast is one of the best anywhere.
