  • Nice apartment in a convenient location in Berlin. It is close to many tourist sites, to public transportation, and also has a couple grocery stores nearby. The apartment was clean when we checked in, with clean towels and sheets provided. The apartment was comfortable. The faucet on the kitchen sink was broken.

    Problems at the check-in. Even if we agreed on a time to meet with the representative indicated by the owner, there was nobody at the apartment. He did not reply to calls / text messages.
    Afterwards another person came to give us the keys. It worked out just fine.

  • This is generally a nice apartment in a convenient location in Berlin. It is close to many tourist sites, to public transportation, and also has a couple grocery stores nearby. The apartment was clean when we checked in, with clean towels and sheets provided. Overall the apartment was comfortable and nice, with lots of windows and a great little patio with a table and chairs. The main drawback was the kitchen. The faucet on the kitchen sink was broken, making it difficult to use. The refrigerator had a sheet of ice at the back and the freezer was mostly blocked off with ice. Also it would be good to know that the amenities are very basic. For example the bathroom had hand soap and some extra toilet paper and that was it. There were some supplies in the kitchen but it was also missing things like extra trash bag liners.

    Also this is not a comment about the apartment itself, but the check in process did not go completely smoothly. I contacted a representative for this listing before leaving for my trip to make plans for check in. We agreed on a time to meet, but the representative was late to get there. This was especially frustrating because we had discussed that I would not have an easy way to be in contact him once I got to Berlin. After waiting half an hour I ended up borrowing a helpful strangers' cell phone to find out what was going on. It worked out just fine but this was not the best way to start the visit!

  • The apartment is in a good location but it is not well-managed. The maintenance of the apartment seems to be outsourced to a third-party cleaning company, who don't do a very good job. When we reached the apartment, it was not cleaned. We had to wait 1.5 hours for the cleaning company to come and clean the apartment. It wasn't cleaned properly though. The floor, tables, dishes, surfaces were all dirty. There was some cigarette ash lying in some dishes. We had to ask for all this to be cleaned and it was cleaned on the last day one night before we left. We had to even ask for toilet paper and soap to be provided. The sofa and cushions were also dirty and not cleaned until the end.

    The apartment is otherwise nice and had a good view, and plenty of air and sun. However, it is left to the will of the cleaning company, and the owner doesn't seem to be interested in making sure everything is in place.
