... for the graffiti party tonight so we got ready in our white T-shirts and jumped on the bus again to go to dinner. Luke had organised for us to go to Marcus Brau for dinner with a set menu, which consisted of a pumpkin/tomato like soup followed by pork knuckle.... Which was amazing! So much crackling and the meat was delicious! I also had a beer with my meal... Well it was non alcoholic and tasted ****! But I can say I had a beer in Berlin now ...
... dismay, it was not as I was expecting. I was able to eat some salami, cheeses, bread, and cereal, but there was literally only coffee and tea to drink. I couldn’t even get a glass of room temperature water, and the staff was not sympathetic. I ended up trying to drink some of the milk, which must have been either very poor quality, or goat milk, as the taste was terrible. I decided then to eat at the café the next morning.
Our day started off with a ...
... kept raving that Berlin has the best nightlife in Europe, and the fact that it was a Saturday night would make it all the more amazing. But I wasn't feeling very good. My headaches have started coming back and I really wasn't in the mood to go out to a club with pounding music and over crowded rooms. So I said goodnight to everyone and headed to bed. That was at 10pm.
I was woken up at 2:30am when Sophie, an English girl I had met briefly earlier in the day, came stumbling ...
... lucked out! This time we booked a five bed mixed dorm due to them being out of four person rooms. This meant that there was a chance of having a fifth random roommate, male or female. This definitely added to our suspense, but we lucked out and had the room to ourselves! Our room was awesome!! We had a sink and shower connected to our room and then our own private bathroom next door. By far the best hostel room situation so far!
Alli was awesome and pretty much ...

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.
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.
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)
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.
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.
