Before I get into what to do and see in Berlin. Lets make a review of the Hotel I stayed in the first and second night.
I stayed at the Hilton Berlin Hotel located on Mohrenstraße, this area boarders what used to be East Berlin.
My friend booked a room with two twin beds. It was your typical hotel room. It has a good shower, powerful AC and comfortable beds. My bed was very comfortable. In fact, i was starting to get a back ache from all of the hostel living I was doing. The two nights I stayed here fixed that right away.
The hotel has the usual coffee pot, soap, shampoo and hair dryer, decent closet and European
The room itself has a nice desk space with a lounge chair next to it. The TV and snack bar area is big. The minifridge is full of snacks (not free btw).
The shower/bath tub is clean with a detachable shower head.
The area the hotel is situated in a good area. Walking distance to a lot of great sites like Brandenburg gate, Checkpoint Charlie, restaurants, Teir Garden, Berliner Dom, cafes, great center squares and even souvenir shops galore. There was also a subway station directly in front of the hotel.
I have to tell you though, I did not book this hotel. In fact, my friend used his points to book the nights. However, I just looked up the prices and it goes for $150 a night. I think thats pretty pricey.
You get a gym and if you qualify for executive level or club level room, you get a great breakfast with coffee, croissants, eggs, juices etc for free.
The lobby is beautiful.
I only stayed here two nights therefore the only thing I can really tell you is that the area is great! Also, after coming from hot Central America, it was nice to have AC and a comfy bed.
Let me break it down for you:
$150 per night
- high end restaurant attached
- great area
- subway in front
- great ac
- room service
- $150 per night
I have to say Im on a budget. Im glad my friend let me stay there. He used his points to book this hotel. I am very grateful. I don’t know that I would have booked this hotel on my budget.
