4.0 out of 5 stars Some flaws but a decent guide
Rough Guides tend to be pretty good and this one is no exception. It's a handy size - easy to carry, not overwhelming in the detail but with enough context and info to give you a start. The maps could maybe be a bit better (we couldn't find the Stasi Exhibition using it) and the U/S Bahn map is out of date. The opening times of some things look out of date too; nothing...

2.0 out of 5 stars Rough Guide to Berlin
Very outdated - although published only in April 08. I visited Berlin in Jan 09 and found half the restaurants listed in the guide had disappeared, the maps were difficult to read as U Bahn stations have more than one entrance/exit, and the info on exhibitions was also inaccurate. Despite my untrustworthy guide book, I still had a terrific time exploring Berlin :-)

The maps could maybe be a bit better (we couldn't find the Stasi Exhibition using it) and the U/S Bahn map is out of date. The opening times of some things look out of date too; nothing too drastic though. It includes a very basic phase book, just some important nouns and basic phrases that (used with a bunch of pointing!) can get you by. A useful guide.

This review is from: The Rough Guide to Berlin (Rough Guide Travel Guides) (Paperback)
You have to rate 5 stars as exceptional which is rare as a rating ,
but as a second hand book it was better than expected so 4 is the next highest to that
Very pleased indeed.

A quick visit to Berlin with a mate.

The book proved very useful and a time saver. Great for advance planning.

Rough Guides are my favourite guide books, very dependable.

This review is from: The Rough Guide to Berlin (Rough Guide Travel Guides) (Paperback)
the book arrived fairly swiftly and was, despite being marked as used, in very good condition and well worth the money. It proved its worth while touring Berlin for 4 days.
Keep up the good work!
