Cool it was this one: http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g189541-d1986559-Reviews-Bella_Sky_Comwell-Copenhagen_Zealand.html

Just had another quick look at Berlin and could still get there quite a bit cheaper staying in the Swisshotel, Raddison or Hilton.. Any hotel recommendations or just what TA says?

Mate that Bella hotel's in a proper shit location (boring business park near airport)…. that's probably why it's so cheap.
What dates did you have in mind? I can have a quick look for hotel in Berlin.

I know, trying to budget a bit to about £500 each and Skiing isnt really the sort of thing I want to do on a tight budget.. plus I cant ski so will need to pay for hire and lessons.. Mainly just trying to use up out remaining holidays before April.

Yeah I had a proper look after positing and noticed from the pics the surrounds looked quite industrial :/

Last week of Feb or any date in March.

Cheers Cool

The Movenpick in Berlin was nice, right by the subway and the room we had came with a free-standing bath.

Mate you can book the Radisson Blu (rated 16 out of 600+ hotels on TA) for 80 EUR/night incl breakfast if you stay March 15-18 (Thu-Sun). This is not via the 'normal' booking sites. Other weekends didnt seem available but you might want to try some additional dates. PM me for details Smiling

What booking site did you use? Everything's so clandestine these days.

Fair enough, with lessons plus hire, you aint getting change out of a grand.

never been berlin, but CPH is prob best for the summer/ it is a tad boring.

There's a code you can use on the Radisson website mate… nothing more than that. Since it's limited availability on the rooms I sent the code to him by PM instead of posting.

Has anyone ever been to Mykonos? It looks ideal for a break with the missus but I've heard the main town can be total rape for drinks/food. Any recommended bars/restaurants or places to avoid?
