Two hotel recommendations in Germany
Posted on Jun 26, 2013 by
Thanks to those who responded to my question about visiting Leipzig and/or Dresden. On our drive from France to Berlin, we chose to drive to Leipzig and didn`t like the look of it so we moved on to Potsdam.
Two hotel recommendations for planning a visit to Potsdam or Berlin. In the former we stayed at the Potsdam am Luisenplatz. It was exactly what we needed after a week on the road - quiet and away from the hurly burly of the tourist area but only a block away from it.
In Berlin, we stayed at Hotel Alexandra Pension in the Kurfurstendamm neighbourhood. Very convenient to the U Bahn and a block from Kurfurstendammstrasse - a lovely street filled with restaurants. This is a residential neighbourhood so the side streets are quiet.
One more tip. The 109 bus from Kurfurstendammstrasse travels to Tegel Airport in 20 minutes and costs only 2 Euros 10 cents. A real bargain. It stops at Terminal 1 - there`s a shuttle bus for travellers leaving from any of the other terminals.
