My friends and I are planning to celebrate the New Year in Berlin and would like to know a good area to stay or hotel. We are in our late 20's. We want to stay in a hotel where it's close to the monuments, things not to miss while in Berlin. Also, we'd like to stay near some nice bars, so we can walk. We are a big group (8 people) and I don't really want problems with finding taxis, etc. Any suggestions on bars??? Also, a restaurant to have a good New Year's Eve dinner... THANK YOU all for your help! I greatly appreciate it! Oh yah, which airport should we land at?? I was looking for flights and I saw that there are two airports, which one is closer to the city????
