In 1963, Schöneberg was the center of the political west, inspiring John F. Kennedy to choose this area to famously announce, "Ich bin ein Berliner." Times may have changed, but modern-day Schöneberg still pays tribute to its historical legacies. Once the richest city outside of Berlin proper, the area's affluent past is still visible in ornate housing facades dating back to the Gründerzeit of the 19th century, while residents in fur coats walking their dogs or shopping in high-end KaDeWe continue the tradition with a modern flair. Schöneberg was also once the center of the decadent and burlesque nightlife of the 1920s. It was here that Marlene Dietrich partied with Christopher Isherwood and the first gay bar in Germany was founded. Today, the gay community still revolves around Nollendorfplatz. The overground Ubahn station is even illuminated in rainbow colors, paying tribute to Schöneberg's progressive past.

We had a really bad experience at the TWO Hotel Berlin by Axel (see separate review) and were terribly disappointed that it did not deliver on the promise of being a gay hotel that is “heterofriendly”. Luckily, after complaining we got our prepaid reservation transferred to the

Mattress needed replacing (bowed-probably from over use), room not cleaned properly on 3 of the 6 days we were there, no coffee facilities and room service would not make a coffee, services almost non existent. The junior suite that we were in gave the impression of a dark room
