There are always large crowds in Berlin this weekend, so plan the trip well in advance.
The best location to stay during the Cultural Carnival is in Kreuzberg, where the festival takes place.
You then basically walk or take the metro only a few stations to Hallesches Tor (Metro U6 and U1) or Mehringdamm (Metro U6 and U7).
The festival area is between those stations.
Crowne Plaza Berlin – Potsdamer Platz
A good hotel we’re staying at during the festival is Crowne Plaza Berlin – Potsdamer Platz, an excellent hotel just 700 meters from the venue.
Also walking distance to Potsdamer Platz (20 minutes). Additionally very close to S Metro station Berlin Anhalter Bahnhof.
