The Space

quiet in the backyard with sunny balcony. sleeping room with double bed, living room connects with open kitchen, spiral staircase leads from living room under the roof with space for two additional people to sleep (seperate or together).
Balcony has space for 6 to sit and is sunny from late morning to evening. Sleeping room has sun in the morning (and curtains;-), living room and kitchen are sunny from morning til late afternoon.

We are a familiy living next door, very pleased to welcome guests - german author and theater director and greek air hostess with our 4 years old daughter. The apartment we offer connects to our own place through a double wing door which guests of course can keep locked.

The building is from 1899 and has been freshly renovated by 2008. The house is inhabited 'western international' - spanish, scottish, denish, israeli, italian, french, dutch - ok and a few german people live here, most of them successfully working in the creative sector. People are quiet here and respect each others privacy.

Ideal location for visitors of Berlinale (2 S-Bahn stops from Potsdamer Platz, the festival centre) or events at the Tempelhof Airport area (Bread & Butter, Berlin Festival etc.), or visitors of the Hebbel am Ufer / HAU theatre (15 min. by feet through the park or 1 metro stop)

We love the atmosphere of Kreuzbergstr. and Bergmannstr. area with all their cafés and little shops and some very good restaurants, the market hall at Marheinike square etc. Tempelhof area where events like Bread & Butter and Berlin festival take place is about 20 mins walking distance. Apart from the Tempelhof airfield park we are in direct neighbourhood with two other very different and amazing parks - Victoria park and Park am Gleisdreieck.

Where to find the best cake, the best shops, the coffee places with the best design, how to get to your favorite destinations and which are the best biergardens around - we'll be happy to tell you. It is the part of Kreuzberg which rather is dominated by a very international crowd of creative people. We also like very much Schoeneberg which has a complete different groove and charme, and is in a walking distance, with one of the most beautiful saturday markets and some great quarters to roam around.

I'll provide you with a first fresh breakfast, of course, and it will be all organic, like the brea I bake myself.

a crib is available once you ask us.
Smoking is welcome on the nice balcony that connects with the living room.

  • I stayed with my wife and two teenage sons for five days at Pigi's apartment at Viktoriaplatz. It was a fantastic time. Everything worked out fine, the apartment is located in a nice area, not too far from downtown attractions, it is well equipped with everything you need. The wi-fi could be a bit faster and with a stronger signal, though. I would definitely return there when visiting Berlin.

  • Great service, very friendly hosts; nice, quiet and clean apartment with balcony facing lush inner yard. Only one drawback: many stairs to climb :)

    Close by, you can enjoy a tasty brunch at Tomasa Villa Kreutzberg.

    Would definitely recommend to anyone staying a prolonged weekend in Berlin.

  • Pigi ist die Beste. Sie hat uns mit sehr viel Herzlichkeit und Feingefühl in ihrer wunderschönen Wohnung unvergessliche Tage beschert. Das ist die Idee von AirBnB at its best.
    Danke Pigi! Wir kommen so bald wie möglich wieder! Alles Liebe für dich und deine Familie.

  • Die Wohnung ist sehr schön und hat unsere Erwartungen übertroffen. Total netter und herzlicher Empfang durch die Gastgeber. Liebevoll eingerichtet - alles bestens. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt! Zur nächsten U, S-Bahn sind es gute 5 Minuten zu gehen. Für uns war´s ideal.
    Danke Pigi, Daniel und Zoi.

  • Pigi's apartment is even better than it looks in the photos. The atmosphere is very welcoming in this bright and cheery apartment on the fifth floor of a beautiful old Berlin building. The balcony is the perfect place to rest your feet after a long day sight seeing, it faces a courtyard with some huge towering trees and the balconies of all the friendly neighbours who wave and say hello.

    The location is great, many nice restaurants and shops a short walk away as well as Viktoriapark where many locals hang out when the weather is warm. On Pigi's recommendation we went to the top of the park and watched the sun set over Berlin, a highlight of our trip. There is also an underground station 5 mins walk away where you can get to all the sights in no time at all.

    Pigi and her family are very kind and after only a short time feel like old friends. Knowing it was our honeymoon Pigi left a bottle of champagne in the fridge for us along with breakfast provisions, a very nice touch. We will definitely stay here again if we return to Berlin.

  • We stayed at 7 different apartments during our trip and Pigi's apartment was the best. It was very, very spacious and super clean. The furnishing were beautiful and it felt like home. It is even more beautiful than the photographs. Public transportation is a bit of a walk, especially at night but it was very easy to get around. Pigi left us fruit and breakfast stuff that was really considerate of her. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend Pigi's place to others.

  • Dear Pigi
    We had such a good time in your apartement. Its a lovely clean place and we enjoyed the roomy feel it gave.
    Some very stylish furnitures I loved and I would still like to buy that lamp from you ;-) "the one on the little wooden table"....
    For checking in and out with our luggage, we loved the possibility of using the elevator in the other staircase. I love to stay in your appartement next time, when Eveline is part of the visit to Berlin. All the best to you. Adrian

  • We appreciated very much our stay at Pigi's apartment. It's clean, calm, beautifully decorated (like on the pictures), sunny and comfortable.
    S- and U-Bahn are located nearby. There are also nice cafés and restaurants in the area. It's a perfect base for exploring the city.
    Pigi and her friends were very helpful.
    We can only recommend !

  • Nice and clean flat. Really calm too. Near U and S bahn, just a few stops from the main sightings. The size of the apartment is perfect for a family with two children. I would recommend this apartment to friends. But keep in mind that the are many steps and the apartment is on the fifth floor. I would not recommend it to a family with toddlers due to the many steps. We didn't meet Pigi personally but she arranged everything perfectly and was available all the time by phone.

  • We have had a great long weekend of stay in the appartement of Pigi. In the beginning it was not clear where we had to report for the appartement. The appartement was cozy and you felt instantly welcome. You should be able to walk stairs.
    Hendrien and Herman

About
(deutsch unten) When our daughter Zoi was born and my company Olympic Airlines was sold I packed my things and moved from Athens to Berlin where my husband Daniel has his homebase as an author and director for theater, radio and TV. I love to take b/w photos, to bake my own bread, and I love to live in this area of Berlin. My name is greek and means fountain. If you want to pronounce it right, take "Yipee", cut it in the center and swap to Pee-Yee. Guess why our daughter has the name Zoi. It means "life" and "fountain" and "life" have the same name day in the greek calender... Ich spreche auch ein bisschen deutsch, wir kommen schon klar... ich freue mich auf Sie.
