It's sunny, quiet and private. - a home away from home! Peaceful but vivid neighbourhood. - Hip, but still loveable!
Perfectly located for subway (No.6&7&1 closeby), Mitte just 20 minutes by foot.
"Penelopes Garden" is first of all a home away from home! Facing south, no opposite building, so lots of light! - No noise, sleep with open windows in the heart of Berlin!!

Beautifully situated in the 3. floor of an old Berlin style building, you get lots of atmosphere, high ceilings and wooden floors! Kitchen and bedroom face south, to a large open green space with a pretty garden. you can hear birds sing in the morning and have breakfast in the sun, - right in the center of Germanys capital city! The kitchen is fully equipped, bedroom has an oldfashioned wallwardrobe and you'll get a queensize bed. We prepared thick, dark purple curtains, so you sleep as long as you like! The livingroom facing the first yard is, again, very silent and roomy. you have a comfortable sofa, hifi, cds, books, tv and fast internet access. There is a newly renovated bathroom with terracotta tiles and a bathtub. in the entrance hall you'll find a closet with everything you need in facilities, like iron and -board, towels, linen, cleaning stuff, fan, and the washingmachine you find in the cellar..

It's nice here, and we'd like to share it with you!

We're just 2 minutes away from:
Bergmannstrasse (a well known street representing the Kreuzberg-style of life), a great markethall, many restaurants of all kinds, cafes, clubs for dancing, cute little shops,
10 minutes from the Jewish Museum, the Landwehrkanal with green meadows and restaurant ships, public pool, American Library
15 minutes from Potsdamer Platz, Friedrichstrasse with its fancy shopping area !

bikes can be provided, 5,- a day.
It's perfect for 2, still fine with 3 adults, or 2 adults and 2 kids!
(matress in the livingroom) - 3rd floor german counting!
The first yard is a fine place to sit - and smoke a cigarette ;) - and very sunny in the afternoon. - The 2nd yard is private.
Interaction with Guests
I often find time to have a coffee with my guests, - in case they enjoy that as well, - and i love to welcome them personally, so both sides have an idea with whom you "deal". I love the exchange with travellers, and their perspective of Berlin and Germany, and it has often been very amusing to sit and talk!
What's great here? - The lively atmosphere, the relaxed people, the beautiful green meadows along the canal, the markets, the cafes and bars and restaurants, the little shops, the easy way to live, that you will certainly feel immediately!
Getting around is easy! - numerous buses, 2 major subway lines (U6 and U7), guarantee easy access to practically all of Berlin. - 35 minutes to both airports by bus and subway. Really convenient!
Other Things to Note
we have lovely neighbours, - be also one!
Means: no parties, no loud music after 23h!
Please don't smoke and please take off shoes- the old wooden floors are difficult to restore after so many years, and they are oiled, so pretty touchy towards gravel and dirt... - i of course prepare house shoes for you.
We were made to feel very welcome at this lovely spacious apartment. It was very tidy clean. The kitchen had all the essential items. The apartment is set back from the main street so was very quiet at night so we all slept really well. This place is excellent value. Our arrival and departure was made very easy by our hosts!
We couldn't have asked for a better first Airbnb experience! Patricia was a wonderful host with excellent suggestions and information about the area. Places to visit, parks for walking, cafes for excellent coffee, and great eating spots! The apartment was so spacious and warm, with everything one could possibly need. We loved our stay so much we are already scheming a way to come back through the Berlin area so we can stay here again!
I'm very happy to recommend the flat of Patricia
The location is ideal - two Uban stations very close. A coffee shop and bakery in the front. A beer' store that is open all the night in the corner. The Kroitzberg center near by - a wonderful neighborhood.
The flat is big, very clean and well organized.
Patricia met me as we planned and was willing to help and recommened.
The living room is big, the bathroom clean, big and organized, the bedroom is sweet with coddled pillows and blankets.
The kitchen is accessorized.
Large windows - a lot of light
I will go there again and agai for sure.
Thanks for everything.
Auf französisch: nous avons passé un très bon séjour à Berlin, et notamment grâce à l'appartement, très bien situé dans un quartier très sympa pour aller dîner le soir ou faire des courses. Le jardin est également très agréable, notre bout de chou a bien aimé y boire ses biberons! Et l'accueil de Patricia et de son mari a été parfait. On se sent tout de suite à l'aise et ils sont toujours prêts à aider et trouver des solutions pour tout... Bref, c'était wunderbar!! Merci Patricia u. Michael. Anne-Laure, Valérian et petit Ferdinand.
Great apartment, loved the warm wooden floors, Persian rugs, and big bath tub. Unfortunately I didn't have much of an opportunity to explore the neighborhood, but it was safe and conveniently located off the U7 and U1. The apartment is on the 4th floor and the garden is more of an inner courtyard that a sitting area, but it provided nice light and air.
And the fast Wifi was a life saver!

About the Host, Patricia
I love my garden, living with my husband, my sister and the dog. I travelled much and have seen a lot, so it's now easy to stay here, specially since it is such a beautiful spot in Berlin! My husband is an architect and photographer and we did some mutual projects in the past. I have been working in theatre as actress and director, and now I have my own studio to work with singers and actors, and do some writing as often as i find time for it. I love music and dance and when ever the weather allows it you'll find me in my garden... There is also a back yard garden for our guests to use with! - My sister and i both take care of our guests, and we love preparing a homely place for you! so you shall have a good time here!
