MOST BEAUTIFUL, CENTRAL AREA
LATE CHECK IN WITHOUT ADDITIONAL COSTS
BEDLINEN, TOWELS & WLAN INCLUDED
This newly interior designed two room apartment in the heart of trendy Prenzlauer Berg can accommodate up to six people, so it's great for a family, large group or for those people who like having space!
The flat is in a typical Berlin building with wooden floors. It's on the second floor and right next to Berlin's beloved Kastanienallee. The mix of design classics like Egon Eiermann, DDR-Design classics, Interlübke and 70ties design lamps mingles well with the selfbuilt kitchen and the furniture designed especially for us by a group of industrial designers.
The first bedroom is furnished with double bed, two Corbusier-couches and a wardrobe. Since we are lamp-fanatics, you can find here two lamps from the now demolished "Palast der Republik", the headquarter of GDR Parliament.
The second room is furnished with a double bed and two single Interlübke-beds, either to use as a couch or for two more guests to sleep in.
The separate huge kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans, plates, glasses and everything else you might need for a dinner. An Espresso-machine from DeLonghi helps you to get started in the morning.
Since the kitchen is at least 28 square meters it serves as a living room as well - here you can hang out in front of the Flatscreen TV or read on the comfy chair.
The bathroom has a bathtub.
Breakfast is not included, but we strongly recommend to just go downstairs to Cafe Entweder-Oder - their breakfast is legendary!
Oderbergerstraße is one of the most beautiful streets in town, very broad, perfect for sitting outside in the summer. Here you find lots of small Cafes and Bars as well as second hand stores and Berlin Designers. The Mauerpark is just at the end of the street, and if you are there for a weekend you should take a stroll over the flea market on sunday!
The UndergroundStation "Eberswalder straße" is five minutes away - from there it is two stops to Alexanderplatz. What few tourists do but what is actually very practical is using the Tram. The numbers 1 and 12 leave around the corner, and with them you can go directly to Hackescher Markt and Friedrichstrasse in Mitte.
The Tram No. 10 takes you to Warschauer Straße, the Border between Friedrichshain & Kreuzberg. There are lots of things to discover in that Area, believe me!
our house is a normal Berlin building with inhabitants that are working and therefore need a good nights rest. Please be quiet at night!
We try to separate our trash (bottles, paper ect.) Please help us do so!
Smoking is forbidden! We are smokers ourselves and know that it is hard to go outside, but we recommend one of the various bars around (schwarzsauer, 103) where you can still smoke inside!
Please see to it that the frontdoor is always closed behind you!
See you in Berlin,
Lulu & Mieke
The apartment is on an attractive street. It is how it is described and is spacious, warm and light. Our only problem was with communication. None of our calls or texts while we were there were answered. We could not make the TV and DVD work for the first two days until we turned it upside down and found an on/ off switch. There are books and DVDs at the apartment which is also nice. It is a short walk from two tram stops and there are great cafes on the street.
We were 4 and stayed there for 3 nights over Easter. The apartment was exactly as described/illustrated: big, cosy, clean and more importantly: very well located, which was ideal for us! we enjoyed staying there.
Between restaurants, bars and a great address for breakfast located right below the appartment: great location!
Thanks for everything
The location is fantastic. My personal favourite area of Berlin: loads of great little restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The apartment itself is OK for 4 people, would not recommend staying her with 6. Communication was clear and handing over the keys was right on time. Overall I would recommend this place!
This was a nice, spacious and comfortable place to stay in Berlin.
It is a little hard to tell from the pictures, but there are 3 twin beds, 1 queen bed, and a large couch. It would sleep 6 people as advertised (we had 5). The location is good.
There is no clothes dryer, even though one is advertised. Hanging clothes in the window worked to dry them out (it was raining outside).
the apartment is very pleasant and is situated on a lively street in a wonderful neighborhood, very close to mauerpark. we would definitely like to come back.
I enjoyed staying at this apartment, primarily for the location and the amount of space available. When we arrived, we were met by one of Lulu and Mieke's friends. I was surprised to receive a "welcome note" comprised only of rules. Their friend additionally greeted us by repeating all the rules that were written.
Overall, the location was perfect - we couldn't have asked for a better neighborhood to stay in. Great food (for real, go to the restaurant downstairs for breakfast), cool shops, and easy access to the rest of Berlin. The decor of the apartment was great too, with plenty of space and comfy couches.
Lulu was difficult to communicate with after arrival. The apartments lists a washer and dryer, so we waited til the end of our stay to do laundry. I thought the dryer was behind a curtain in the hallway, but when I looked back there, it was more storage for the house. When I messaged Lulu to ask where it is, I received no reply. Additionally, the apartment overall is clean, but the shower has mold in the grout (my boyfriend has an extreme allergy to mold, so we were quite unhappy to see this).
Me and three friends stayed in Lulu and Miekes apartment for three nights. The apartment was spacious, light and very convenient. It's in a perfect neighbourhood, close to really good restaurants, bars and Mauerpark. A thing that surprised us though, was that when we got the key from a friend upon arrival we got told two times to only contact our host if there was an emergency. This surprised us a bit and didn't make us feel very welcomed. I also tried to contact Lulu but it took me very long to get a reply. Despite this we really enjoyed our stay and recommend the place.

Me (dark hair) and my friend Mieke (blond hair) have been friends for ages. We both love traveling - we hitch-hiked the pan american highway from Canada to Brasil when we were 20 (our mothers hated it!) - and we want to offer our guests a "home away from home" how we would like it.
Both of us think that not only the sight-seeing highlights like Brandenburg gate are interesting, but also the normal districts, the houses and streets are of major importance for getting an insight view of the city. This is the advantage of a vacation rental.
We hope that all our guests are happy with their stay and are always happy to help - except too late at night of course : )
See you in Berlin,
Lulu & Mieke
