When we arrived, the reseption was pitch dark, and the receptionist was hidden behind the counter wearing big headphones.
We were given a small, strange room with a tiny bathroom. Everything in the room looked a bit dirty, and all of the furniture were clearly...More
This hotel was a bit of a disappointment. The photos were misleading. The hotel itself is more like a hostel with tatty furniture and a dirty entrance hall. It doesn't even look like a hotel from the outside and on the inside the bathroom is...More
I really tried to like it at The Hotel De Ela, because the desk staff was so friendly & accommodating, but 3/4th of the way through my stay, I couldn't stand the dirty, aged feeling of the room any longer, so I booked myself a...More
Arrival at the hotel
The hotel is inside another building on the corner of a nice street. Going up the wide steps there is a call box and a buzz button for the Hotel De Ela. There is a sign suggesting the hotel is somewhere...More

In 1963, Schöneberg was the centre of the political west, inspiring John F. Kennedy to choose this area to famously announce, "Ich bin ein Berliner." Times may have changed, but modern-day Schöneberg still pays tribute to its historical legacies. Once the richest city outside of Berlin proper, the area's affluent past is still visible in ornate housing facades dating back to the Gründerzeit of the 19th century, while
residents in fur coats walking their dogs or shopping in high-end KaDeWe continue the tradition with a modern flair. Schöneberg was also once the centre of the decadent and burlesque nightlife of the 1920s. It was here that Marlene Dietrich partied with Christopher Isherwood and the first gay bar in Germany was founded. Today, the gay community still revolves around Nollendorfplatz. The overground Ubahn station is even illuminated in rainbow colors, paying tribute to Schöneberg's progressive past.
