    I know there is a laundy called Pinguin Textilpflegemeer.

    The address is: Friedrichstraße 142 and is 1 kilometer away from the Potsdamer Platz.

    I hope this will help.

    Pinguin is not a Do-It-Yourself-Laundry, and are you positive that's just their company's office in Friedrichstraße?

    I guess Lolo needs to take the subway to Rosenthaler Platz (U8). There is a pharmacy at the crossroads Weinbergsweg/Torstrasse. Go down Torstrasse to find two DIY-Laundries: Torstraße 109 ("Eco Express") and Torstraße 115 ("Schnell & Sauber").

    Hello Turtleshell: thank you for your feedback.

    I was in Berlin in the year 2007 and at that time it was a do it self laundry. Maybe that has changed over the years?

    many thanks! but what about on the other side, from tiergartenstr towrads budapesterstr and zoo train station? is there anything like the Seld Washing salon over there? what is the name of the chain? many thanks! I could also give them to a regular washing place , just NOT at the hotel (where it is too expensive)! many thanks again!

    Jerelis, I don't know. I am living near Munich now, and when I was in Friedrichstraße last year I didn't really need a laundry. Judging from Google Earth, there doesn't seem to be a self-service laundry, but I could be wrong of course.

    Lolo5, I found this site:
    berlin.cityilike.com/de/Wasc...
    Perhaps it is best to copy the addresses the page provides into Google Maps or Wikimapia and see what comes out of it.
    Or you could ask a local, e.g. a taxi driver if he knows of a "Waschsalon" around there. Please note, a "Waschsalon" is a self-service laundry as opposed to "Wäscherei", which is not self service.
