Which neighborhood would you recommend in Berlin?

Hi all,

I am looking at rent a small apartment (1 bedroom or studio) in Berlin. Like most people I want to find the best quality/price accommodation and the one that will maximize my limited time (5 nights).

I am a bit confused at which neighborhood(s) in Berlin I should be looking at!

Which neighborhood would you recommend?

We want to use public transport only and be the closest to the major attraction in Berlin. We are a couple in our mid-50's, so nightlife is not important. Is there any "unsafe" neighborhood in Berlin?

Thank you in advance for your suggestion and comments.

Looking forward to visit Berlin in May.

i stayed in mitte not far from checkpoint charlie and thought the area was fine, may be more offices around but with the great transport links it wasnt that much hassle getting to the main sights and bars/restaurants

Thanks to all of you for your comments, suggestions and heated debates (that's what makes thing move!).

I initially selected a studio in Alexanderplatz, however the apartment was not available anymore!

I've decided to select the Checkpoint Charlie apartment. It is a bit more expensive but much bigger (45m2) and with a balcony. I am also very close to both the U2 and U6 and less than 20 minutes walk from the Brandenburger Tor.

I will be visiting both East and West Berlin, so if you have any recommendation for a good meal or visit. let me know. I am recently retired, so I tend to be on the "low cost" (yes, cheap is more correct) and more bang for the buck (or Euro!) type!

Again, thanks to all of you! Looking forward to my visit in Berlin!

Ive booked the checkpoint plaza apts again for a visit at the end of january.

I thought the surrounding area was fine and found it easy to reach everywhere from stadtmitte station.

Thanks, Alabastron. I didn't realize that.

I streamlined the post a bit and reposted under a new thread.

Excited about possibly being in Berlin next week!
