template being' out late at night after the trains have ceased 
running, a central situation is, of course, of importance; and 
these would do well the confine themselves — if economi 
cally disposed — to the streets between the Central Hotel 
and the Leipzigerstrasse. In the Charlotten- and the Mark- 
grafenstrasse, again, and still within easy reach of the 
amusement centre, will be found an other region, where the 
traditional bed and sitting room can be obtained at almost 
any price from 20 Marks to 50 Marks a week and above. 
Those who wish to be central, and are not so particular as to 
the price they pay, should prosecute their search on the 
streets near the Konigsplatz or the Thiergarten, where they 
will find besides fine rooms, good cooking, first-class atten 
dance, and a general flavour of fashionable life. 
American young men of moderate means generally prefer 
quarters in a boarding-house at a fixed price per week. 
Extras must be stipulated for and the price arranged in ad 
vance. In most lodging-houses breakfast may be had if de 
sired for from 2 to 5 Marks a week additional. 
Handsome suites of two rooms with bath may however 
be had at about 40 Marks a week. Suites of rooms of this 
kind are to be found on the upper floors of houses in the 
Mittel- und Dorotheenstrasse. An easy method of obtaining 
lodgings is to insert an advertisement in one of the great 
Berlin Local Papers, the “Vossische Zeitung”, or the “Ber 
liner Tageblatt", or the “Borsen Courier”, stating rooms re 
quired, location, price, and other particulars. Such an ad 
vertisement is sure to elicit a host of replies from which to 
select. For good addresses, by all means call at Brasch 
& Rothenstein and you will thus be spared much unnecessary 
search and trouble. 
The usual mode of hiring lodgings is by the week, in 
which case a clear week's notice, terminating on the day of 
entry, is necessary before leaving.
