We had a great stay at Lulu and Mieke's apartment with no problems. Check in went fine, and we were also able to check out late. The apartment is in a great location close to many places to eat and drink (our favourite place for breakfast was Cafe Krone, down the street to the right)! We'd happily stay there again.
We had a very good time in Lulu and Mieke's appartment.
It is nicely decorated, comfortable and there is plenty of room, epecially in the bedrooms. The street where it's located is particularly lively, nice restaurants and bars and original stores - and very close to Kulturfabrik, Mauerpark, Kollwitz - market and so on.
Perfect for us!
This was our very first experience with Airbnb and it was great! The apartment was just as listed and pictured, and the bedrooms were very spacious (much larger than expected). It is in a great area--the former Berlin wall just at the end of the block and very close to Mauerpark. There were several great little restaurants nearby that had fantastic food at very reasonable prices. We had to park a few blocks away, but it wasn't a problem. We felt like we got more of a local feel than staying at a hotel, which really enriched our visit to Berlin. We highly recommend this property to others!
We really enjoyed our trip to Berlin. The initial contact with Lulu was great, she was very quick to reply to questions and super friendly. The apartment is just as you would expect it to be from the photos and description, light, spacious and quirky with most of what you would need for a long weekend stay. The location in particular is wonderful - on a great street with plenty of cafes/bars and restaurants and very close to the city centre.
On the negative side, on arrival there was what I thought was a friendly welcome note - but in fact it was a note telling us to 'keep the apartment clean' with a list of instructions on how to leave the the place. Being a host myself I found this fairly unfriendly and unnecessary especially considering there were aspects of the apartment which were not very clean (a rusty dish dryer next to the sink and pistachio shells under the sofa), also the dishwasher advertised in the post was not working - perhaps something that could have been mentioned in the correspondence.
I also tried to contact Lulu as our check out circumstances had changed, but received no reply.
Despite these minor problems, we really enjoyed our stay.
We had no personal contact with our hosts. The apartment is very well located and although being in an area with plenty of restaurants, it is very quiet.
The apartment is in need of some maintenance though: the kitchen lamp was off, the bathroom washbasin stopper wasn't working and the washing machine was out of order.
Lastly, the glaring omission of a microwave oven doesn't go well with boasting that the apartment has a "fully equipped kitchen"...
Wir hatten einen sehr schönen We-Aufenthalt in der Wohnung. Die Lage ist klasse, gleich gegenüber von einem meiner Lieblingscafés, sodass die Wege kurz waren. Richtung Mitte kann man problemlos laufen, es gab 2 Schlüssel, sodass wir uns auch aufteilen konnten. Lulu´s Kollege hat uns empfangen und alles erklärt. Da es keine Probleme gab, mussten wir sie auch nicht weiter kontaktieren. Die Wohnung ist grosszügig, ordentlich und sauber, perfekt für 3-4 Personen für ein paar Tage Berlin.
Die Wohnung liegt perfekt. Zentral, ruhig in mitten netter Cafés.
Die Schlafzimmer sind gross und man fühlt sich gleich Zuhause.
Wir waren rundum zufrieden : )

Me (dark hair) and my friend Mieke (blond hair) have been friends for ages. We both love traveling - we hitch-hiked the pan american highway from Canada to Brasil when we were 20 (our mothers hated it!) - and we want to offer our guests a "home away from home" how we would like it.
Both of us think that not only the sight-seeing highlights like Brandenburg gate are interesting, but also the normal districts, the houses and streets are of major importance for getting an insight view of the city. This is the advantage of a vacation rental.
We hope that all our guests are happy with their stay and are always happy to help - except too late at night of course : )
See you in Berlin,
Lulu & Mieke
