About This Listing
This is a Kreuzberg original. Cute little apartment in a popular neighborhood.
Visit us and get the real feel for Berlin! The studio lays in the heart of Kreuzberg - the district that never sleeps. You will live inbetween the famous Oranienstraße and Warschauer Straße and will get an impression of the original Berlin. The neighbourhood offers you a huge variety of bars, restaurants, clubs and supermarkets. And as it is typical for Berlin: there is something for every taste! Görlitzer Park, which is a parc famous for its mulicultural atmosphere, is only two minutes away and gives you the opportunity to relax or to have a barbecue. Next trainstation (line 1) is reachable within five minutes by feet. It gives you a very good transportation in every important area from Berlin. The historical center is reachable in 10 minutes or the Hauptbahnhof in 15 Minutes. If you would like to explore Berlin by bike you can rent them for a very fair price from us.
The studio is located in a very calm and pretty courtyard. Its high ceilings (3,20 m), big rooms and original wooden floors spreads out a classical charme of a berlin style apartment.
The apartment offers you a kingsize bed and a big pull out couch with enough space for two people. A large flatscreen TV and a DVD player is available for your extra entertainment.
The kitchen is open and integrated in the studio. It is equipped with everything you need. Kitchen and studio are separated by a bar with seating for four people.
The bathroom is next to the entry. It is completely modernized and has a bassin, a toilet and a bathtub. Fresh towels and bedding are always included in our price! Internet access is available and for free!
If you have any questions I would love to answer them!

On 1.1.2014, the city of Berlin started charging a „City Tax“ for all private travellers in the amount of 5% of the net rent (total rent less all fees, cleaning and VAT). Business travellers and stays above 21 days are (website hidden) rent 150 Euro x 5% = 7,50 Euro
Bij de reservatie via Airbnb is alles heel vlot verlopen en kregen we snelle reactie van Ben. Bij aankomst in Berlijn konden we sneller in de studio dan gedacht, dus dat was een meevaller. De studio zelf was heel proper en netjes. De foto's op de site zijn waarheidsgetrouw, met uitzondering van de badkamer die kleiner was dan we verwacht hadden. Verder was alles in orde!
Enige minpuntje: we vonden het spijtig dat we geen contact hadden met Ben en Monica. We hadden graag via hun wat 'inside-information' over Berlijn gehad, restaurantjes, etc. Dat was voor ons toch één van de voornaamste redenen om niet op hotel te gaan, maar om te kiezen voor een studio via Airbnb.
The location of Bens apartment is great. Being my first trip to Berlin I wasn't sure which neighbourhood to stay in but I can definitely say Kreuzberg was a great choice. It was much different to what I was expecting so do be warned there is a lot of graffiti on the exterior of the building, and many drug dealers occupy the park which is right next door, however they are harmless and keep to themselves. The street of the apartment has so much going on and a great vibe! There are plenty of great restaurants and grocery stores and it is walking distance to all of the good night clubs. The apartment itself was exactly as shown in pictures. The only negative we found was the wifi, it only worked in a certain spot and a lot of the time did not work at all. Ben did send a technician to help with the issue however he said because the wifi is shared with others in the apartment building it will just be slow and there was nothing to fix. However we enjoyed our stay nonetheless and Ben was very helpful and attentive to all queries. Also I strongly suggest Nano's falafel! It's about a 10 minute walk and so worth it
The apartment was nice and clean as on the pictures. No remarks whatsoever. The upstairs neighbors were a bit noisy with their music in the early morning. The area has a lot of nice restaurants and cafés where we hung out a lot. We wanted to check out a little bit later and that was not a problem. I can really recommend this apartment.
Ben hat uns vorab alle detaillierten Informationen zur Wohnung und zum Checkin zukommen lassen. Das einchecken war einfach und unkompliziert. Von der Wohnung ist die nächste U-Bahnstation in weniger als 10 Minuten zu erreichen und der Park ist gleich nebenan. Ganz in der Nähe hat es auch gleich einen kleinen Supermarkt und eine grossartige Eisdiele. Die Wohnung war sehr sauber und mit allem ausgestattet was man benötigt. Da es nur ein Fenster in den Innenhof hat, ist die Wohnung am Tag ziemlich dunkel. Am Anfang hatten wir Probleme mit der WiFi-Verbindung. Monika hat uns aber rasch mit den richtigen Tips versorgt. Die Wohnung hat alles zu bieten was man für ein paar Tage Berlin benötigt und können wir somit gerne weiterempfehlen.
really lovely flat in a great location. felt right at home.
Wonderful apartment. Ben's instructions were clear and everything worked well. It was also freshly cleaned when we arrived and warm. Thank you Ben.
