very cozy and quiet room located right on the district border between Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg, in the beautiful Lottumstraße, just a ten minutes walk from Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt. The U-Bahn (subway) stations Rosenthaler Platz (U8) and Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz (U2) are even closer, and so are a lot of nice restaurants and all sorts of cafes, bars and galleries.
We are two very easy going guys from Italy and Germany with an active lifestyle who like to have visitors from all over the world; we will be happy to give you tips and informations about the city and how to have a good time here.
Your room, just like the whole flat, is simple but comfortable and functional. You will find free WiFi, little active speakers to attach your laptop or mp3 to, an international electricity adapter, washing machine, dishwasher, fridge, stove, oven, microwave, bathtub and fresh sheets and towels.
Great room for a solo traveler. Internet is good. Location is great with several metro stops and coffee shops nearby. Uwe and Marco are really chilled and helpful. I would stay here again.
Very nice and tidy room and apartment where I felt safe to leave my stuff during the day. It's in perfect location near multiple metro stations so easy to reach, and lots of grocery stores, restaurants and pubs nearby. The inmates are very friendly, help you if you need it with something but also if you want privacy they keep to themselves. There's also helpful and entertaining books and maps in the room. I stayed for 9 nights and unfortunately was so busy that I only spent the nights at the apartment but nonetheless felt like home.
My experience at Uwe's place was great. Even if he wasn't at home during my few days of staying the communication was super easy. His roommate was also really helpful and welcoming and the location is also good.
Uwe was a great host! He provided recommendations on which attractions to see in Berlin and helpful advice for the city. Room was clean, perfect for the single traveler, with even some guidebooks to use. Clean linens and a towel were provided. Location was great with lots of places within walking distance such as restaurants and public transit stations.
Great place in a buzzing neighbourhood, full of restaurants and cafes.
Uwe and his roommate were extremely helpful, in recommending me places to go to.
Perfect accommodation for a single traveller.
Séjour très agréable. Uwe est une personne très accueillante et chaleureuse.
I spent 3 nights in Uwe's apartment on my first solo trip to Berlin. Uwe's directions were very helpful and he waited up until 10pm for my arrival. The apartment is conveniently located for all the sights around central Berlin, as well as the fashionable Prenzlauer Berg area with numerous cafes and bars not too far away.
The apartment itself was as described - perfect for one person, and you share the bath and kitchen facilities with Uwe and his flatmate Marco, both of whom were very friendly and helpful.
As mentioned by others, i tried the coffee using the fresh beans and grinder, and it was superb!
I had so much fun on an organised cycling tour of Berlin, that I rented a bicycle from near the apartment (at much better rates than the touristy areas, and was able to park it safely at the entrance hall below.
Overall a great experience - thanks for your hospitality Uwe!
J'ai passé un très bon séjour dans la chambre de Uwe ! le lit 1 place est très confortable, j'avais bien sûr accès à la cuisine et à la salle de bain. Uwe et son colocataire sont très accueillant.
Staying at Uwe's was great. I enjoyed living with him and Marco for a whole week. They are both super friendly and full of great suggestions about where to go and what to eat.
The room is big and comfortable. There are a lot of books to read or just browse, speakers for the music and the bed is lovely.
I didn't manage to rent a bike (very easy thing to do) to go to other areas of the city, but from this place you can easily reach every place in Mitte by foot. There are a lot of buses and underground stations nearby and you can both have dinner in restaurants or buy food in supermarkets - that are really close.
Well, I could go on with good reasons to stay with them, but the main one is that I felt home here. I had my privacy, but I found a lot of kindness and willingness to help whenever I need something and a friendly chat every day.
I will definitely come back as soon as I visit Berlin soon! :)
Uwe is an easy going host with whom you feel like at home. Had good conversations and went to grab some dinner together with him.
