Do the best burgers in berlin, also do steaks if that's what you after?
Amazing burgers in there, bit off the beaten track but worth it

What you expect to do at the abandoned theme park? Puzzled It's nice to see if you're walking that way and want to take a couple of pics but other than that it's nothing special. (unless you fancy climbing the fence and having one of the security guys let their dog on you)

I'd recommend stopping off at Dresden as it's more or less half way between Berlin and Prague. Also the train between Dresden and Prague goes through the valleys along the Elbe River and it's Jawdropping!

I was going to say that, but it's in kruezberg. Cosmo Hotel is good, and that's in Mitte. I'd recommend michelberger though.

Can't beat Circus HOTEL in mitte. Stayed there for New Year last year and it was a winner. Good location, comfortable rooms and relatively inexpensive. Opt for a room facing the courtyard of the hotel if you want a quieter room and a decent view of the TV tower.

Standard "I'm off to Berlin this time next week" (16th - 21st, more specifically) with a couple of mates. Is there anything slightly more off the beaten path / more underground / only obvious for the locals that we should check out? I obviously want to look cool and Ich Bin Ein Berliner in front of my friends.

Booked two nights with my girlfriend to stay in Das Stue for her birthday in November and opted for Schönefeld airport as it allowed for Stansted return and cheaper flights. I know public transport will make the connection to the Hotel easy from the airport but when I went to Budapest last year they had a service like a minibus that dropped a us and a few other arrivals off at our respective Hotels and then came and picked us up to take us back for our return flight, all for quite cheap. Anything like that in Berlin? Or failing that are taxis cheap there?

The S-bahn is a 2 minute walk from the airport, and it's a sheltered sign posted walk too.

Failing that if you look on the hotel website http://www.das-stue.com/en/meta/lage-anfahrt

From Tegel airport (TXL) a cab ride will be about 20 minutes and cost approximatley 26 EUR, whileSchoenefeld airport (SXF) is about 25 minutes and approximately 45 EUR away.

If you come by train, Berlin Hauptbahnhof is 8 minutes by taxi, and Zoologischer Garten about 5 minutes, both rides will cost under 10 EUR.

For those looking for the most comfortable option, we offer limousine service and pickup from the airports or trains stations.

I've been shamed there. Thanks though, before I go I might ask a less easily answered and more interesting question in this thread than that one.
