Cosy apartment with green views

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Gärtnerstraße, Berlin, Berlin 10245, Germany

Bright apartment in very central location, bright and with green views. Many excellent cafés and restaurants nearby.

The Space

Bright, cosy and absolutely affordable, this is the perfect place for a couple or a family with small children. The apartment has a bedroom with a double bed and a living room with a comfortable bed-sofa, a table for 4 and a small, well equipped kitchen.

I travel a lot and when I'm not in Berlin I offer my home to people from other cities and countries. It is a small apartment, but it is very lovely. Smoking is not allowed, but you can have a cigarette on the balcony, where you can even have breakfast (there's a small foldable table with two wooden chairs).
In the living room you'll find a television with local channels, but you can connect an USB drive and play films (only mosh common formats are supported). The sofa is convertible; once unfold, you'll have available place for two guests (but be aware, it's only a sofa bed).
There is also a small kitchen unit for cooking something simple; a fridge with freezing compartment; and the things you need for cooking. I always leave some basics there (oil, salt, pepper...), so you only have to buy what you age going to eat - on Saturdays, you will find an excellent fresh market on Boxhagener Square.
The bedroom is comfortable and has enough space for a baby bed.
The bathroom is very typical for Berlin: about a meter wide but about 6 meters long.

Guests have access to the entire apartment. I will also give them access to the wifi of the apartment, but it is important to notice that German authorities are very strict about internet piracy and that illegal downloads are often identified.

Being an internet addict even on the move, I contact my guests when they have questions or when they need something. I will always provide a contact person in Berlin in case there is any problem.

Friedrichshain is young, hip, active. Many painters and artists work and live here and show their creations on Sundays on the well known flea market of Boxhagener Platz.
Around Boxhagener Square you will find plenty of cafés and international restaurants.
On Wühlischstrasse and Gabriel Max Strasse there are plenty of small, beautiful and interesting shops.
Friedrichshain is a place with lots of different places, and Boxhagener Square is the lace where everyone meets.

Transport is close and varied: a bus heading to Ostbahnhof (the second most important train station of Berlin), a street car going to Kastanienallee in Prenzlauer Berg and a underground directly to Alexanderplatz and the museums. But maybe the best way to move through Berlin is the bicycle, and you will find many shops renting them for a slow as 10€ a day.

  • Had a great time! Warm, fridge, kettle, comfy bed. Location was excellent! We spent every night in the bars and had some great food around the park. On the weekend there's a cute market on your doorstep. We walked to the Stasi museum and to east side gallery. Otherwise a short u-bhan to fredericstraße. Oliver was contactable by text at all times. Really great stay. Thank you!

  • Отличная квартира в отличном месте. От метро 10 минут пешком. Окна выходят на тихую улицу. В квартире сделан хороший ремонт и есть все необходимое, включая кофеварку и специи для приготовления еды. Хозяин очень мобилен и ключи можно забрать в удобное время и в удобном месте. Выехать разрешили на 1 час позже указанного времени. Единственный минус - в доме нет лифта. Тащить чемодан на себе на 3 этаж не очень круто. В доме 3 отличных кафе, рядом много магазинов и разнообразных кафе/баров. На площади в выходные проходят ярмарки - био-маркеты еды, блошиные рынки и т.д. Нам все очень понравилось и я абсолютно точно готова рекомендовать эту квартиру и ее хозяина своим друзьям. Если снова поеду в Берлин, возможно, опять остановлюсь в этой квартире.

  • My friend and I enjoyed our stay at Oliver's place. It was very clean and the host Oliver was extremely communicative from the beginning.

    Located in Friedrichshain, the apartment is in the convenient vicinity to the many craftsman shops, bars, and restaurants.

    In addition to the underground (U-Bahn), there are also a number of bus lines right by the building, making it easy to go to Ostbahnhof and other places in Berlin.

Professor at University of Barcelona
I grew up in Germany, but later I went to Spain with my parents. Now I work in Barcelona, visit frequently Majorca, where my parents live, and spend a lot of time in Berlin, a city I love and where I have many friends. My apartment in Barcelona is perfect for short-term-stays (and even long stays), and I spend a lot of time thinking about how I can make the stay of my guests even more comfortable. The house we rent in Majorca used to be the home of my parents (who now live nearby), and you will find a comfortable, authentic, personal, well equipped and spacious home there for your stay on this beautiful island. and the house we rent in Majorca are perfect will I will make sure that you feel comfortable and have a wonderful stay in Barcelona or Berlin. If you have any question, feel free to ask!
