Formule 1 Hotel

On my way home I decided to stay in Formule I Hotel as I was pretty tired and I had still 650 km to drive. The hotel is located outside Berlin - in Brandenburg Park - in the neighbourhood of the other hotels like Hotel Etap and Hotel Ibis. The next day I could continue my journey to Sweden completely refreshed.

W powrotnej drodze do domu, zdecydowalem sie przenocowac w hotelu "Formule I" poniewaz bylem troche zmeczony a do domu zostalo mi jeszcze okolo 650 km. Hotel "Formule I" polozony jest w Parku Brandenburskim przy samej autostradzie niedaleko Berlina w otoczeniu paru innych hoteli takich jak Hotel Etap i Hotel Ibis. Nastepnego dnia moglem zatem kontynuowac moja podroz do Szwecji juz calkowicie wypoczety.
