Our stay at the Hotel Amelie Berlin was a pleasant one marred by only one incident which we will recall later in this post…
The Hotel Amelie Berlin is within walking distance from the Friedrichstrasse (affectionately known to us as Fried Rice Station) or Oranienburger Tor U-bahn station. The price of the hotel was about 70euros inclusive of breakfast which was quite ok.
When we arrived at the hotel, a well-mannered receptionist who spoke with good English served us. We arrived early and placed our luggage there. She also showed us how to get to all the attractions on the map.
The room was small but clean and decent. The toilet was nice and clean with an attached shower.
The only thing about the toilet is that the mirror is placed very high up. According to our estimations, anyone less than the height of 1.7metres, will not be able to see themselves in the mirrors of the bathroom.
Funny choice of height to place the mirrors dont you think?
So far, our experience have been good. The breakfast served was also typical european with bread, cheese, milk, hams and eggs…
Then the “incident” happened…
After breakfast, we wanted to ask the receptionist what was the building across the road (it looked like some kind of a prison). At first, she ignored us. Then we realised why. She was not able to speak English! So she continued to do her calculations (should be summing up the profits for the night) and ignored us.
So this episode sort of turned our experience at Hotel Amelie. Well,
Firstly, shouldnt the receptionist be able to speak English just like the receptionist who spoke excellent English the day before?
Secondly, even if she could not speak well, she should have asked someone to help instead of just ignoring us.
Other than this “episode”, the stay was nonetheless a good one, because of its price as well as its proximity to attractions nearby.
