In general we recommend two hotels which are very close to the Pharmacy Department (7 minutes by taxi, 10 minutes by bus). There is a bus stop directly in front of the hotel Best Western Steglitz International. Take the bus line 383 and get off at the bus station “Hünefeldzeile”. From here please follow the map. Buses are leaving every 10 minutes, that means full hour, 10, 20, 30 etc. From the Hotel Ravenna it is only 2 minutes walk to the bus station in front of the Best Western Steglitz International.
They are also very convenient to go to the city centre in West Berlin (main shopping street: Kurfürstendamm, approx. 8 minutes by U9) but also to the centre “Berlin-Mitte” (shopping street: Friedrichstraße and boulevard “Unter den Linden”, approx. 25 minutes by U9 and city train via “Zoologischer Garten”). Both hotels are located at the underground station “Rathaus Steglitz”, terminal station of central underground line U9.

The hotel Best Western Steglitz International is located directly above the underground station “Rathaus Steglitz” (terminal station of line U9). When you leave the station from any exit, you will see it immediately. The Hotel Ravenna is located in 2 minutes walking distance from the station (approx. 60 m). When you leave the underground station you are at a street crossing (Schloßstraße, Albrechtstraße and Grunewaldstraße). Go to Grunewaldstraße, the hotel is at the right side.
Other very nice but more expensive hotels are the Grand Hyatt at the Potsdamer Platz and the hotel Adlon Kempinski just opposite to the famous Brandenburg Gate (Brandenburger Tor).
