Scotland - Round of 16? - Where to stay

Suggestions by potential venue

Berlin - 29 June

Hotels:

Motel One Alexanderplatz
“Before I moved to Berlin, I always used to stay at Motel One on Alexanderplatz”, says Liverpool and Union Berlin fan John. “It’s a 2 minute-walk from the station and has great transport links. Has a decent bar and in the evenings a bar on the top floor with views over Berlin. One train to the airport, one train to the Olympic Stadium. Also reasonable walking distance to the Nikolaiviertel, Gendarmenmarkt, Unter Den Linden, Hackeschermarkt, etc etc”

NH Hoteles Friedrichstrasse
“We used to stay at another hotel, but now always stay at the NH one on Friedrichstrasse, as it’s the perfect location for getting around”, says Palace and Union fan Huw.

Märkischer Hof
For several years before I got my own place in Berlin, this was where I stayed on my frequent visits to the city. It was a simple, if slightly tired hotel, but affordable and within walking distance of Friedrichstrasse station and much of the city centre. However, it’s changed a fair bit since then, I think.

Hostels:

EastSeven Berlin Hostel
Located in trendy Prenzlauer Berg, a 20-minute walk from Alexanderplatz. Very highly rated hostel, close to Senefelderplatz underground station, from where you can get a U2 U-Bahn straight to the stadium.

Eastener Hostel
A 10-minute walk to Friedrichstrasse station (from where trains run direct to the stadium) and 25 minutes on foot to the Brandenburg Gate. A small hostel for the independent traveller. Not, they stress, a party hostel!

Circus Hostel
Centrally located, almost right next door to the Rosenthaler Platz underground station, which puts you on the network for travel all around Berlin. Rated 'Superb' on Hostelworld. Also just across a park from FC Magnet Bar, a good bar for watching football, as mentioned on my Berlin City page.

Cologne - 30 June

Hotels:

Hotel Maritim
“I like Cologne, because it’s easy to walk to most places and has plenty of bars”, says Liverpool fan John. “I stayed in Hotel Maritim, which is very nice and conveniently located.”

Wyndham Köln
While the Maritim is located directly outside the front of the station, the Wyndham is right outside the rear doors. Bristol City fans Liz and Dave, who have stayed at both, preferred the Maritim, but say the Wyndham was also "a very good location if you're travelling by train".

Meininger Hotel Köln West
Budget accommodation just a 20-minute walk from the stadium. Single, twin, triple, quadruple and dormitory-style rooms available. 24-hour front desk, bar and free Wi-Fi. 

Hostels:

Station - Hostel for Backpackers
It's been many years since I was a backpacker staying in hostels, so I can't vouch for this place personally. But it certainly looks convenient, being only 150 yards from the main station (and therefore also from the cathedral and city cente).

Die Wohngemeinschaft
The name is German for 'The flat-share' or 'Communal living'. It's 19 minutes on public transport or a 30-minute walk to/from the main station. A 20-minute direct tram ride to the stadium. Rated 'Superb' on Hostelworld. Has its own cafe/bar.

Frankfurt - 1 July

Hotels:
