This apartment is a colorful nest for those looking for the big adventure in the city. It has 2 rooms with 2 separate beds that each sleep 2 people. The full kitchen is in one of the rooms and the bathroom is huge. The furnishings are mostly self made and from upcyled stuff I find. I have put a lot of work in the details so you don't feel like you are at your very own IKEA home just in a different city. There is a stereo to listen to your music but I proudly do not own a TV.
You are must be looking for a unique heaven to come back to after a long night/day (or both) else this is not for you.
Free Wifi internet access.
I have 2 bikes that you can use to explore the city.
The Flat is centrally located in Moabit directly at the Birkenstraße U-Bahn (U9) stations (2min) and the Westhafen S-Bahn station (5min). These lines provide you with very easy access to all the great areas and neighborhoods Berlin has. Prezlauer Berg is only 10min away, Mitte just as close. Kreuzberg and Neukölln 20 min. The Tiergarten, the largest Park in the city is within walking distance along the river Spree. The government district with its great architecture and the Main Trainstation (Hauptbahnhof) is only about 10 minutes away. The ICC or Berlin Messe (Exibitiion Grounds) is a few stops with the S Bahn. The charming, cobblestone neigborhood offers numerous cafes, convenience stores, pharmacies, grocery stores, and organic-markets. It's plain awesome here.
Ben's apartment is great - quiet, spacious, clean. Ben was always prompt in responding to queries and was generally most accommodating. Only one bike was available for use during my stay and perhaps needed a little work doing to it. Thanks Ben!
Ben owns a very original and very spacious flat in Moabit. It is located a 3 minutes walk from U-Birkenstrasse and therefore a perfect hub to Berlin City. Ben was extremely nice and helpful during my stay and I can absolutely recommend Ben as a reliable and communicative host. Well done !
The flat is very nice BUT THE DEAL WAS NOT FAIR.
It is written flat with 2 bikes, and I ask for my reservation, to be sure to have the bikes. But the bikes were really in bad shape, it was almost impossible, and very dangereous to ride them. I call Ben to say it, but he didn't propose a solution, and he didn't propose a price discunt. I had to rent another bikes. So, it was not cool, because I would have rent a sheaper appartment if I had known that I'll have to rent bikes.
Apt is very spacious and nice. Location is very close to public transportation.
It was really a nice stay and easy to communicate with Ben. I would definitely come back again to this apt.
Ben was very helpful and available to answer questions all the time
Thanks a lot
The apartment is located between a U9 station and a S-Bahn station. Just a few minutes walk to U9 and less than 10 minutes walk to ring-bahn. Easy access to most of the city's attractions, and to the regional train station for a day excursion trip to near by towns.
There is a big supermarket just one block from the apartment, and a few restaurants and bars just a few steps away.
The apartment is very bright and clean. Facing the inner garden, it is very quite all day long. with the 2 double beds (one in the bed room, one in the living room), the 4 of us sleep quite comfortably here. There is a stove and oven with cooking appliance provided, we made a few dinners in the apartment easily.
This was such a great experience! Ben, the host was super nice. Close to the train stations, main bus stops, and airport so it was very convenient to travel to and from berlin!
A fantastic apartment with great transport links just two minutes down the road. Amazingly creative and unique.
Ben was such a help. Providing us with a wealth of local knowledge which made our short weekend stay in Berlin that much better.
Well worth a visit.
The apartment was easy to find, located in a quiet neighbourhood close to the center of the city. The U-bahn station was really close (about 200m).
The apartment was really nice and unique, really loved the decor and after the first day it felt like a home away from home.
The host Ben was easy to communicate with, speaks good english, and gave us great tips about the city when we first met.
Would absolutely recommend this place to anyone going to Berlin. If I go back to the city, this place is definitely my first choice when it comes to a place to stay.
The apartment is very nicely decorated and Ben is a very welcoming host. The location makes it very easy to get to the city center. And the kitchen is well equipped.
However there are some problems that aren't entirely apparent from the description of the apartment.
1) The shower head does not attach to the wall meaning you can't comfortably have a stand-up shower.
2) The second bed in the living area is rather uncomfortable. The mattress is basically a thin cushion and is just placed on a wooden box.
3) Despite the kitchen being great there is no comfortable place to have a dinner with a group. (This is a somewhat minor concern)
In conclusion: This is a great place if it is just your base out of which to explore Berlin, and if you only require one bed.
Berlin, sûrement une ville qui bouge mais pas a noël
L appartement de ben super
Ben un hôte fort sympathique et plein de creativite
