My wife and I are planning our first trip into Berlin. We would be using hotel points from one
of the hotel chains in which we have points for our stay. One of the Hotels is in the Steinplatz
area and the second hotel is almost in the Gendarmenmarkt. Our interests, in addition to the
desire to become familiar with the city as a whole, are directed to art, music, architecture, and
history. In beginning to become familiar with the city it appears that the Gendarmenmarkt appears
to be more centrally located and probably better for our interests; however, if travel from Steinplatz
to other parts of the city is not difficult AND if there are some really special reasons for staying there then we would consider staying there. If there are some really special reasons for locating at
these locations I would really appreciate your comments. Thanks.
