We spent 5 nights here and it was the perfect choice. The room was very nice, and large, quiet and clean. The location is fabulous - near many great restaurants and walking distance from many of the sights. The breakfast buffet included all we could...More
I was so impressed with this Pension...the location, rooms, and food were all top notch, but honestly it's the owner-hostess Frau Angelika who deserves 8 or 9 stars. She was so helpful and welcoming. I needed to order some items from German Amazon and she...More

Quaint pension a few blocks from Checkpoint Charlie, convenient to the metro. Large, clean rooms and a nice breakfast. Wi-fi was good. Owner-host Angelika will tell you stories of life in East Berlin and share her uncle's homemade jams and jellies!
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today
you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
