Hotel review: Hotel Kolumbus- Berlin – A&O hostels and hotels

SRB: Ukoliko tražite mirno mesto na kome ćete prikupiti energiju za razgledanje Berlina, hotel Kolumbus je pravo mesto za vas. Ovaj hotel deo je hotelske grupacije A&O koja ima 31 hotel u 19 gradova Evrope ( Nemačka, Austrija, Češka, holandija, Italija). Ova hotelska grupacija se sastoji od jeftinijih hotela i hostela za omladinu i sve koji se tako osećaju. Hoteli i hosteli su moderno opremljeni, izuzetnu uredni i čisti i savršen su izbor za kraće gradske ture po Evropi.

Hotel Kolumbus se nalazi u mirnom delu severno-istočnog Berlina, u Gensterstrasse ulici, okružen stambenim zgradama koje svojim dizajnom predstavljaju  duh obnovljenog istočnog Berlina. Lokacija hotela je odlična jer je udaljen samo par minuta od tramvajske stanice, 7 km od centra grada, 7 km od železničke stanice i 18 km od aerodroma. Saobraćajna povezanost Berlina je besprekorna pa ćete lako tramvajem ili podzemnom želenicom brzo stići do svih turističkih atrakcija ovog grada.

Na recepciji hotela dočekaće vas ljubazno i prijateljski nastrojeno osoblje koje vam je na raspolaganju 24 časa dnevno. U prizemlju hotela nalaze se restoran, lobi sa kompjuterima i internet konekcijom, televizorom. Sobe su moderno opremljene, uredne i čiste. Možete izabrati jednokrevetnu, dvokrevetnu sobu ili spavaonu sa više kreveta ukoliko putujete sa većom grupom prijatelja ili želite da probate pravi hostelski način života pri čemu bi ste delili sobu sa potpunim strancima i na taj način upoznali zanimljive ljude iz celog sveta. Od usluga ishrane, dostupan je samo doručak, koji se služi u vidu švedskog stola ( koliko god možete da pojedete)! U celom hotelu dostupan je besplatan wi fi internet. Prijava gostiju moguća je do 3 sata popodne a odjavljivanje do 10 ujutru. Vikendom je check out nesto duzi i traje do 11 časova. U hotelu je uvek zabavno i veselo zbog velikog broja mladih ljudi, studenata ili đaka. Sobe su tihe i buka iz lobija hotela vam neće smetati, ukoliko vam je posle duge šetnje i obilaska potreban odmor.

Ja sam u ovom hotelu boravila pre dve godine, kada sam bila na studentskog ekskurziji u Nemačkoj i Poljskoj. U Berlinu i ovom hotelu sam boravila 3 dana, i zaista sam stekla divne utiske o hotelu Kolumbus. Ovde ćete naći sve što vam je potrebno za udobar i miran smeštaj u metropoli kao što je Berlin. Iako spada u red jeftinijih, ” budžet”, hotela, Kolumbus ne zaostaje mnogo po svojim uslugama i standardu za nekim skupljim hotelima. Čista posteljina, čiste sobe, udoban krevet, odličan i raznovrsan doručak je sve što vam je potrebno za savršen boravam u Berlinu.

ENG: If you need a quit, peaceful place or place with a lot of young people and fun, in both cases, Hotel Kolumbus is perfect place for you. This hotel is part of A&O hostels and hotels group that has 31 hotel in 19 cities in Europe ( Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Italy, Netherlands). Their hostels and hotels have modern design, they are clean and cheap. These budget hotels and hostels are perfect choice for your city break vacation.

Hotel Kolumbus is located in north-eastern part of Berlin, in Gensterstrasse street and it is surrounded by buildings that embrace the beauty of renewed East Berlin. This hotel has a great location. It only located only few minutes from tram station, 7 km from the city center and railway station and 18 km from airport. The traffic connections in Berlin are great. You can reach any of tourist attractions using tram or subway.

You will be welcomed by friendly and hospitable staff at the reception desk. The are here for you 24 hours a day. On the ground floor of the hotel you will find the restaurant, lobby with computers and internet connection, TV set… Also hotel has a gym that the guest can use. This is very important part of the hotel because a large number of sport teams are staying at hotel Kolumbus.  The room in the hotel are well-equipped, clean, and modern. You can choose for your stay a single or a twin room, or a bad in dorm if you want to experience the true hostel life, by sharing your room with strangers. This way, you will meet some interesting people from all over the world. The breakfast is the only meal that is served in this hotel and it’s all-you-can-eat buffet breakfast. Free wireless internet in available in the whole hotel. Check- in is until 3 pm and check- out until 10 am. On weekends, you can sleep a little bit longer and check out from the hotel until 11 am. In this hotel, you will always find fun and meet some great new people. But if you need rest  after the long day of walking and sightseeing, you can peacefully sleep in your room.

I was in hotel Kolumbus two years ago when I was on my student excursion in Germany and Poland. I absolutely loved this hotel! This hotel is perfect for young people and has everything you need. I stayed in the hotel for 3 days with 6-7 friends. Staying in this big room with my friend was one the best things on this trip. Although, this hotel is ” budget” hotel and cheaper hotel, this hotel offers you all you need. You will get clean linen, tidy and clean rooms, comfortable bed and delicious breakfast. This is all that I needed to boost my energy for the next day and discovering of Berlin.

Top 5 boutique hotels in London

Abbaye de westminster Big Ben London

ENG:  Today on my blog, my choice for top 5 boutique hotels in one of my favorite cities –  London! In “Hotels” section, as you could notice, my favorite sort of hotels – boutique hotels. For you, who are not in hotel business, I would like to explain a little bit better, what boutique hotels are. Boutique hotels have smaller room capacity but much more intimate atmosphere than in bigger hotels. Here you can expect high level of privacy and luxury. First boutique hotels were opened in London, in 1980, so London is perfect choice for presenting boutique hotels.  Average room capacity of these hotels is from 100 to 150 rooms. When it comes to boutique hotels, the most important things are, interior design, privacy, luxury, home atmosphere, courtesy of hotel staff. I love boutique hotel because trough them is presented the best part of hotel business, the beauty of architecture, the home feeling, intimacy, the art of living!

 

SRB:  U ovom postu predstvljam vam top 5 butik hotela u jednom od mojih omiljenih gradova – Londonu! U rubrici o hotelima, kao što ste već primetili, najviše pažnje poklanjam mojoj omiljenoj kategoriji hotela, butik hotelima. Vama, koji niste u hotelijerstvu, želela bih da malo približim pojam butik hotela. Butik hoteli imaju manji smeštajni kapacitet u odnosu na ostale veće hotele. Njihov kapacitet kreće se od 100-150 soba. Ali njihov kapacitet ne umanjuje luksuz i nivo uređenosti ovih hotela. Naime, ovi hoteli odišu prestižom, elegancijom , predivnim dezajnom, visokim  nivoom privatnosti i ljubaznosti osoblja. Obožavam ove hotele, jer oni predstavljaju srž hotelijerstva, fenomenalnu arhitekturu, enterijer, osećaj doma… Oni predstavljaju umetnost življenja. Prvi butik hoteli počeli su da se pojavljaju u Londonu, 80-tih godina prošlog veka. Stoga, u današnjem postu, mojih  5 omiljenih butik hotela u ovom fenomenalnom gradu. Pogledajte…
