Forget the kindle version. All maps are bad quality scans so zooming on your device does not work. The text is a useful pointer for more information (it tells you which city map / free travel magazine is best), but you have to find your way to information point to get maps of the city.
I love rough guide books, but if you're after information about travelling there on a budget, I suggest buying one of their other books.
The general information, orientation and history of the places is helpful. That's pretty much where the helpfulness ends.
The maps are utterly useless on the Kindle. They're too small to be read by human eyes, then if you expand them, the poor quality images are totally pixelated to the point of being unreadable.
A few restaurants listed in the book don't exist anymore and perhaps most importantly, almost all of the prices of things are out of date. From museums, to hotels, to public transport, the information is all out of date. Unforgivable for a travel guide, especially one focused on the budget-conscious traveller.
We also felt pretty silly when we went to the Pergamon Museum in Berlin armed with the information from my "handy guide book" that the last 4 hours of all the state museums are free on Thursdays. We were told on arrival politely, but firmly, that this hasn't been the practice since 2010 and bought a full-price ticket.
If the publishing information is correct, that this edition was published in 2012, then either something is wrong with the Kindle edition or the authors/publishers are guilty of laziness in updating and sloppiness in reporting.
Although the general information is good, this edition is thoroughly flawed and out of date.
