1. Re: where to stay

Hello beach10,

I recommend the area between upper Friedrichstrasse - Oranienburger Strasse - Hackescher Markt, especially if you visit for a shorter trip. In this area you have both, walking distance to most important sights, a nice and lively neighbourhood with many bars and cafes as well as quite some "new Berlin"-feeling. It actually is the most varied area in Berlin. Berlin' s public transportation works incredibly well, nevertheless the city is very dispersed so for a short stay, try to find a hotel right in this area - you will like it!

Check these hotels:

The Melia Berlin

and

Arcotel Velvet

and read Inside Page on neighbourhoods to find out more about Mitte etc.

The two main areas where most tourists stay are Mitte or Charlottenburg (Ku'Damm area). In Mitte you'll find the majority of sights while in Charlottenburg you'll have one of the big shopping streets on your doorstep plus a few sights as well.

Berlin has a very good and efficient public transport system and it never takes you long to get from A to B. Therefore anywhere within Central Berlin is fine if you have an underground or S-Bahnstation nearby.

You could check out the following hotels in the Ku'Damm area. I've not stayed there but friends of ours did when they were visiting us but couldn't stay with us.

www.hotelbregenz-berlin.de

www.pension-peters-berlin.de (I think that is the website of the Pension Peters on Kantstr. 146
