New York City
I'm trying desperately to find cheap but decent accommodations in Berlin (2 ppl hopefully under or around $100/night total) from Dec 30-Jan 4.
We seem to have hit a road block with availability.
Suggestions welcome ! Thanks !
I went to Berlin twice for New Years Eve. First time we found a decent apartment on this website: http://www.oh-berlin.com, the 2nd time through www.airbnb.com. We were a group of 4 to 5 people so we needed another type of accommodation than what you are looking for. However, in both occasions we paid far less than $50/night/person so you should be fine.
To add, Berlin is for an European city quite a cheap city in my experience especially when you go a bit around. I can't really say where I have been those two times as we went a bit unplanned so I have no clear locations anymore.
Bonus tip: There is a free accessible New Years Eve party right at Brandenburger Tor (in German New Years Eve is called Sylvester, so look up Sylvester activities etc for more info). It is huge and it quite good fun!
Have a great trip!
