Arcotel Velvet on Oranienburgerstrasse.

It might be a bit expensive but it's really nice.

Well, I love Berlin, too. I just wanted to say that it's a lot better to visit in summer, when the trees are green and...

Berlin's fabulous female population wears far too much in winter, although the high-heeled leather boots they all wear make up for that at least a little bit.

Hotes? Pfft. You must stay in DIE JUGENDHERBERGE. That's where a lot of tourists end up since it's the only bit of german they remember hearing in school.

We're spending New Years Eve in Berlin and got a flat ("Ferienwohnung") in Prenzlauerberg for 3 or 4 days. It's far cheaper than any hotel, and you save a lot of money as you don't depend on restaurants for food. Come to think of it, restaurants can be remarkably cheap, too, at least in P'berg => Pizza Salmone for 3 or a lovely indian dinner for 4-6... Surprised We are not worthy! You'd hardly get a sandwich for that price in Zurich... Rolling Eyes

Last time Kerry and I went to Berlin we stayed in a flat as well. I can't remember the name of the street but it wasn't far from the natural history museum (where the Archaeopteryx is).

Explore the pubic hair of our guests that slept in your bed before you!
Enjoy the toiletpaper battles and drunken teens of the school classes residing one up from yours!
Enjoy a breakfast for little money that no others would give a penny for!
Catch most of the conetmporaryly available dermatophyte germs of the world in our shower cabins!

Nope, I really can't recomend them. Only the most unpopular ones are interesting to stay at. Like Husum in February. That one was nice.

Actually what we are looking for is a desent place to sleep and have breakfast, we do spend the whole time wandering so we always eat out.

Speaking of that, I know two "hostels" in Berlin that are relatively clean and pleasant, and of which one has a good breakfast buffet (the second one); they're relatively inexpensive (they're hostels, not hotels) but don't expect anything but the absolute minimum in furniture and service. East Seven doesn't offer breakfast, iirc. No pupils on excursion but mostly backpacking tourists.

1. East Seven Hostel, Schwedter Strasse 7 (Prenzlauer Berg borough, not far to U2 U-Bahn underground)
[The guy at the reception was a bit patronizing but the room was ok and quiet, and they cleaned everything, including the room, every day, which is unusual for hostels]
2. Home From Home Hostel, Warschauer Str. 57 (Friedrichshain, not far to S-Bahn metrorail)
[Operated by Russians, the reception was (wo-)manned by a kind of female KGB agent with large... well, articles that Mr. Blast would certainly approve of. Overall friendly staff but bathrooms ran out of toilet paper during the week so better buy some as backup.]

Google should come up with URLs (too lazy now.)
