Accommodation in Berlin
Hotel NH Berlin Mitte – Not Normal Living highly recommends this 4 star hotel in the city centre – it’s a really handy base for exploring Berlin by foot. A couple of minutes walk from one of the main shopping streets and some of Berlin’s biggest sights are an easy walk away too. The rooms are modern, very clean and well appointed. The hotel restaurant is excellent.
