Neighborhood
Friedrichshain
When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may find a bar with international crowds, electronic music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other, an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.

We have an interest in the DDR, so we had wanted to stay here for ages. The room was pretty cool, and the bed was very comfortable. Could probably do with a better standard of cleaning, as there was a bit of dust around the...More

This place gave me exactly what I expected for the investment, that is a budget room for a night with a fair touch of originality. The advertised Ostalgia bit is actually pretty well done. From the moment I entered the square-shaped block with washed color...More

Had so much high hopes for this. Ok I knew only one night would be enough. What I didn't expect (and the first time in my life) was me leaving the hotel at 4am to go sleep in the car ! Each room has laminate...More
