Cheap hotels in Berlin, find best offers

Discover Berlin

You can find lots of affordable and convenient accommodations in the German capital, mainly in the charming Charlottenburg area, to the west from the city centre. These cheap hotels cost around €22-24, and are located about 10-15 minutes from the centre and its magnificent sights like the Brandenburger Tor, the Pergamenmuseum, or the Checkpoint Charlie. Of course there are hotels in the magnet of the city as well, but they are a bit more pricy.

There is no way to get bored in the area where cheap hotels are to be found either, since it offers a huge variety of interesting places, for example the Volkspark in Wilmersdorf, the Kurfürstendamm shopping street, the Olympic stadium near Heerstrasse, and the 18th century Schloss in Charlottenburg, built in French style, which has got really beautiful palace gardens. It used to be the summer residence of Princess Sophie Charlotte, and the wings where Friedrich I and his wife lived/live are also open to the public.

The Berlin Wall is another important memorial, which served as a barrier separating West Berlin from the German Democratic Republic (GDR) and East Berlin for more than 25 years. It symbolised the Iron Curtain between Western and Eastern Europe and also between USA and the Soviet Union. When it was announced on November 9 1989 that finally all GDR citizens could visit West Germany and West Berlin, huge crowds of East Germans climbed across the wall, and rejoined West Germans on the other side. Over the next few weeks, parts of the wall were moved off by the euphoric people; later industrial machines were used to remove almost all of the rest of it. What remained, can be visited by tourists, and is decorated by the graffiti artists of the city. If you feel like visiting this historical monument, all you have to do is search for a low cost flight and a cheap hotel – always helps you find the best offers, let it be the airlines, the hotel room or a company to rent a car.

Some things to take care of when planning your trip

To have a holiday without setbacks, it helps a lot to take into consideration what simple measurements can be done that would save you many bad shots.
First of all, always check your documents that will be requested at the entrance of your destination country, consult the competent government agency, and even if you do not leave the country, keep in mind that it is obligatory to carry along your identification papers. Moreover, many accommodations request documents at registration. You may also want to rent a car, so you'll have to take your driver's license with you (get informed about the international driving license, too). Do not forget your travel insurance, your health insurance card (we strongly recommend you to take your health card). There are some countries where a visa is required to be allowed to enter the country at all. But do not worry, in most countries you can enter and stay without visas or special permits for some months (usually 90 days).
A good tactic is to photocopy important documents you might need, so in case they get lost or stolen, it will be really useful. Furthermore, it is also a good idea to carry along two extra passport photos.

Thanks to the Schengen agreement, one can freely cross the borders of ‘Schengen countries’, so EU travellers travelling within this area won’t be asked to identify themselves. Even so, you should always carry along identity documents, because police might ask for identity checks, any time. The following countries form part of the Schengen Agreement:
Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Spain, Slovakia, Slovenia, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Holland, Hungary, Iceland (non-EU), Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Norway (non-EU), Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland (non-EU).
EU countries that do not belong to this agreement are: Bulgaria, Cyprus, Ireland, UK and Romania. Citizens outside the EU will need to apply for visas and documents to enter the Schengen area. The maximum length of stay for travellers is 3 months.
Bear in mind that some documents and visas are not that easy to get, one has to wait for them. Therefore it is recommended that you plan the travel and learn about these documents well in advance.

In addition to paperwork, when travelling within or outside the borders of the EU or the Schengen area, don’t forget to be informed of the required or recommended vaccinations in certain countries. If you know exactly the health care situation of the country which you plan to travel to, you can avoid many unpleasant surprises.
Again, please note that some vaccines require more than one dose, sometimes with large temporary spaces between them, so it is advisable to act well in advance. Be cautious with consuming food, especially fruits, and for your security, drink bottled water only.
Also, the maximum weight of your luggage is usually around 20 kilos –depending on the airline-, so it might be a good idea to make a list of most necessary things before packing your suitcase. Your passport (and anything fragile) is best to be guarded in your hand luggage that you bring along into the cabin.
Note that you can’t have scissors (or any kind of cutting or stabbing tools) with you, nor liquids of any kind (water, tee, juices and all types of cosmetics), or at least only a small amount.

Unfortunately, sometimes it happens that your luggage gets lost. In this case it might be helpful to have some clothes with you in your hand bag, until your luggage is found.
