About this listing
Located right in Kreuzberg and two minutes from the international, multi-cultural and lively famous Oranienstrasse, the room is very quiet, at the end of a large apartment.
The guest room is very quiet and bright (with morning sun), large (25-m2) and is located at the end of a 150-m2 apartment next to the bathroom.
It has just been renovated (June '13), has a new 1.60 m wide bed, a comfortable sofa, a large table with two chairs, a sink with stove and refrigerator, coffee maker, kettle and various utensils for self catering.
Despite the quiet location you walk just two minutes to the typical multi-cultural Kreuzberg scene of the famous Oranienstrasse next to U-Bahn Kottbusser Tor. You can have breakfast in countless coffee houses, eat in different restaurants with culinary delights and snacks cheap and tasty once around the globe. There is a wide selection of trendy bars, cocktail bars and typical old Berlin pubs as the "Max and Moritz" or "Henne". Internationally known clubs such as the "Sage Club", "Kater Holzig" or "Ritter Butzke" can easily be reached on foot.
Guests (there is a second guest room) have a private bathroom (see photo).
Interaction with Guests
I've been living here for 30 years and I'm happy to help, just ask.
Hey, it's Kreuzberg :)
The underground station Kottbusser Tor and the stop of the Metro Bus #29 are five minutes walking distance By public transport you are in a few minutes either at Alexanderplatz, former Checkpoint Charlie and it's museum, Jewish Museum, to the Hackescher Markt, Unter den Linden, the Ku-Damm and the Memorial Church, Potsdamer Platz and or the Museum Island. For guests arriving by car there is easy parking right outside in front of the house.
And for the brave of you: I also have two new bike to rent (8€ p. day/bike with quantity discount and incl. a Berlin biking map) :)
Other Things to Note
The room / apartment is located in the rear house / garden house on the 3rd floor (no elevator)
First Rule: Have Fun!
Beside that: Please don't bring other people in my house, especially not over night! And please turn off any file-sharing software and do not stream movies on your internet connection, it's very expensive in Germany and I have to charge you...
