Lizzie è stata un ospite meravigliosa! Mi ha inviato tantissimi suggerimenti di posti da visitare e locali dove mangiare e bere sia prima della partenza sia durante il nostro soggiorno. Abbiamo apprezzato tantissimo la sua gentilezza e la sua disponibilità. L'appartamento è molto carino e pulito; nella cucina abbiamo trovato tutto l'occorrente per cucinare. Nelle vicinanze ci sono tanti ristoranti e bistrò dove fare colazione e cenare. Siamo rimasti entusiasti del nostro soggiorno a Berlino e il merito è anche di Lizzie! Grazie!
Super voyage à Berlin !
Lizzie nous a été d'une grande aide ! Elle a prit le temps de tout nous expliquer sur le quartier et la ville en général :)
Définitivement nous retournerons loger chez elle durant notre prochain voyage à Berlin !
It was really nice living in her apartment. everything was so clean and comfortable. lizzi welcomed us really lovely and gave us many information about the city and nice places to go.
and the appartment is located in such a good area (all the good places are near to the appartment) :)
Lizzie met us at the apartment and shared her knowledge of good local spots for coffee, food and drinks. This was much appreciated.
Also in the apartment were a variety of guides some of which we used during our stay.
The apartment was perfect for the two of us; it is well planned and the living space seemed generous. Whilst we stayed at the apartment we used the kitchen to cook a couple meals. We found the kitchen to be well equipped. Having a dining table was a bonus.
We loved our stay at Elke's apartment. Lizzie was a great host. We look forward to returning here in the future.
Lizzie Was really helpfull and so Nice . It Was our first air b&b experience and we will do it again . She Was here when we arrived and told us about a lot of places to be, things to do and during the whole week she texted us about the wheather and the events of the day .

Trotz Verspätung durch Stau hat Lizzi uns sehr herzlich empfangen und uns viele Tipps gegeben, auch immer wieder zwischendurch ! Der Kontakt war von Beginn an sehr gut und sehr nett, sie vermittelte das Gefühl, bei Fragen jederzeit erreichbar zu sein ! :) Die Wohnung war sauber und alles was man für den alltäglichen Bedarf braucht (Kaffee und Milch hatte Lizzi schon besorgt :) ) fussläufig erreichbar, auch die Bahnanbindungen sind gut !
Danke für den schönen Aufenthalt !!!
We had an amazing stay in Berlin. Elke's sister Lizzi was so helpful all the way. So many great tips of where to go and what to do. We were a bit overwhelmed with how much there was that we wanted to do in just 3,5 days but really appreciated all the tips we got. The flat was at a great location. U-bahn stations just a few minutes away and Lizzi kindly gave us a map over the train line and the general Berlin map to help us get around and it was a life safer. We had such an amazing trip and are very grateful, thank you!!
