Berlin's new and old centre mixes history and future: At Checkpoint Charlie history was written for decades. It is located in the direct neighborhood of the Potsdamer Platz, which is a symbol of Berlin's future and its new centre with political, media, cultural- and lifestyle institutions.
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.

Fantastic location near Checkpoint Charlie. Modern, clean accommodations. Amazing staff who took care of all my concerns and logistics as a single woman travelling. Made me feel like at home! Highly recommend.

Just a couple of minutes from Coch-strasse, conveniently located just of Friedrich strasse. Bright, clean rooms - small bathrooms. The interior design is no to my liking; bright colors (red, blue etc) mark room-doors and wardrobes. In all very plain all over. A small bar...More
Stayed here as a base for 4 days in the city. Easy to get to for the airport via train / underground and a quick walk. The hotel is about 5 mins walk from Checkpoint Charlie.

Very close to Checkpoint Charlie, maybe a 10 minute walk. Hotel room was clean, bathroom with a shower & bathtub, two single beds that push together to kinda make a queen size. The safe in our room did not work, and they did not know...More
