Dear Customers, dear Friends, dear Travelers looking for Advice during the Corona crisis!

In these times of crisis, it is our highest concern that everybody stay healthy and safe. Obviously the less people move and travel, the better their chances to stay healthy. So we encourage you to take all measures necessary.

A Friend in Berlin is a small company so luckily we do not have a lot of overhead costs and we can survive for many months without business. Nevertheless we continue to operate should you wish a tour in Berlin, Munich, or elsewhere in Germany. There will be no cancellation fee should you cancel up to 24 hours in advance. Of course we adhere to all the regulations and public safety advice so you can be sure that we would do everything in our power to minimize any risk of catching the virus.

In the meantime we got together and filmed some shots of Berlin - Please check out the video: We may also do a live-session soon to give you some Berlin-stories, and to answer your questions, so stay tuned to our Facebook page!

Hopefully things will improve soon. Stay healthy and come back once the risk dies down!

Where to stay

There are so many hotels in Berlin, it’s hard to decide which one to pick. Below you will find a selection of hotels that clients of mine have highly recommended. Some are in the Western part, near the Kurfürstendamm, where you’ll find real city life with restaurants, shopping and cafés, others in the Eastern part where the “new” Berlin is shaping up. Prices vary between Euro 80 to 300 for a double room.

Holiday flat

Or how about a holiday flat? A friend of mine rents a very nice (newly renovated and quite stylish) studio apartment in a great, lively neighborhood in Kreuzberg.

Hecker Hotel

Another option near Ku-Damm (West-Berlin) is the Hecker-Hotel. This is a privately run 4-star hotel with excellent service and personalised atmosphere. It is situated very conveniently between Ku-Damm and Savigny Square so that you have dozens of great dining opportunities within a 2-block radius. The 69 rooms are very modern and some have special themes like the popular Bauhaus-Suite.

Arcotel Velvet

Would you rather stay in the former East? The Arcotel Velvet, one of Berlin’s most popular hotels, is situated right in “Mitte”, in the middle of Berlin’s most popular nightlife district. Every detail in the hotel and your room is most tastefully designed aspiring to offer an adventure to your senses: And of course, you will find the most modern equipment (DVD-player, flat screen TV etc.) in your room or suite. During the day, consider visiting the New Synagogue, one of the many galleries nearby, or walk to Museum Island which is only minutes away.
