Neighborhoods in Berlin

Jump to last reply

We're going to be in Berlin next month for nine days for the first time. We want to stay in a neighborhood that we'll enjoy being in. Since we can take our time touring the city, we don't have to be in the center of the action. I found several good hotels near Savignyplatz square but I am also looking into hotels in Mitte. My husband is rather picky and always wants a quiet hotel which is sort of a mission impossible in any large city!
We're 60ish, well travelled, enjoy museums, parks, restaurants, tourists sites, shopping, performances, jazz clubs etc... but we also want to be someplace where there is a choice of restaurants/ cafes where we'll feel comfortable (not places that are only for the younger crowd).
Is the Savgnyplatz area suitable or should we look at the Mitte area? I found a good deal on a hotel (Hotel H’Otello K’80 ) close to the S Bahn tracks but my husband is afraid there will be too much noise (the windows are soundproofed.) which will ruin his vacation. I read that the S Bahn is an electric train so how much noise could it make?
Please don't suggest looking for an apartment (airbnb). We did it twice on other vacations and didn't enjoy the experience at all. I guess it was just bad luck but my husband won't even consider the possibility.
