Hotel Amano

    Places & Spaces Whilst Away

    a weekend in berlin

    May 21, 2012

    As most of you know, i visited berlin to attend the very first the hive blogging conference. No doubt there’s already 10’s of wonderful posts about the event for you to read online so i will instead recount some of my impressions of the weekend and introduce you to some of the wonderful bloggers i met.

    First up, if you want a really comfortable, stylish and central hotel, look no further than to the exquisite and reasonably priced hotel amano in mitte. We stayed in two of their wonderful apartments and the roof terrace is to die for, helped by the weather being glorious and hitting 29 degrees by sunday. After a long day of sightseeing, shopping or attending a conference, this is the way to relax before dinner.

    For glorious food, dudu is a must. Go for sashimi, maki rolls or the most popular crunchy dudu roll – an incredible combination of yellowfin tuna, avocado, cucumber and sesame covered crispy tempura, all accompanied by guacamole and salsa. The other favourite is their beef with lamb salad and their sushi rolls. We were lucky to sit outside on the patio and have dinner with the wonderful Toni and Thea from sister mag, clara from tastesheriff, susanne from lieschen heiratet and ricarda from 23qmstil.

    The weekend was dominated by the blogging conference and i was delighted to hear some of the talks and meet these wonderful ladies. Oh, yes the boys from freunde von freunde did not disappoint.

    The other talks that impressed me were growing your readership by oum and blog etiquette and how to deal with negative feedback by the lovely anne from prêt à voyager.

    Another highlight for me was meeting the gorgeous sibylle from

    and the talented anne from anne’s kitchen.

    Now i’m back in cold and greyish london. Let’s hope for a sunny week. What were you up to on the weekend?
