Thoughts on Berlin

EasyJet flight London to Berlin, less than an hour and a half.

Initial reaction on landing at Berlin Tegal Airport not good, indeed dire.

No proper signposting, then when finally get outside to cat the airport bus, smokers blowing smoke in ones face.

Catch airbus bus, when I alight, no sign of Metro striation. Had I got correct stop?

I stopped off at Balzac Coffee at Ernst-Reuter-Platz. I needed wifi. Staff helpful, coffee not good.

I wanted Crowne Plaza Hotel Potsdamer Platz. But when I inquired at Airport Information, I discovered I had booked wrong hotel. How dumb, two hotels with the same name.

I now had to travel to wrong hotel to see if possible to change my booking to correct hotel, if needed be pay the difference, but not pay twice.

I check in, or rather not check in. Finally I get transferred to correct hotel.

I arrive Crowne Plaza Potsdamer Platz four hours later than would otherwise have arrived.

I dine at Laya, an excellent Israeli restaurant.
