About this listing
Are you looking for something comfy and practical? I offer this flat, which can sleep up to 4, for you to enjoy. It is a little place, but has everything you need, even for longer stays. A washing machine and wireless internet is there for your use.
There is a high bed, and the couch folds out into a comfy double bed. You can choose where you want to sleep. (Please ask by the reservation for an extra sheet if you are only 2 guests but sleeping separately.)
The building is an older rustic one, built in the early 1900s. The massive walls insulate the apartment well from the neighbors. There is central heating, and hot water of course. You can get around the city rapidly from here, as there are 2 bus lines and an underground in close walking distance. and the S-Bahn is 15 minute's walk away. There is plenty of parking around.
In the apartment, you will find a coffee machine (and coffee!) some cereals, tea, kettle, toaster, hair dryer, and the like. There are also useful directions to things in the area. Also, optionally, you can rent bikes or a cheap local mobile phone (please ask for details).
Baby cot available, 20 Euros (for entire stay) with sheet and extra towels.
Bikes available for rent, please ask in advance.
Other Things to Note
Berlin has 5% city tax. This is not included in the price. It is possible to opt out of paying the city tax if you are in Berlin on business.
Please no Illegal filesharing, it has happened before, and is quite expensive in Germany (5001 Euros!) If you use the internet, you are consenting that you take responsibility for the cost of your uploads.
Please be quieter after 10, it is German law, and the neighbors are not on vacation..
Check-ins after 21.00 are 10 Euros more per started hour.
Please make sure the number you have listed is a mobile number where you can be reached in case there is a problem.
Other than that, rock on and have fun.
The lab is a nice place and offers everything you need. We experienced smaller issues with the coffee machine, but fixed it (you have to press all three buttons at once ;). Unfortunately the WiFi was not working, what is problematic when you don't have a German Sim-Card and are dependent on WiFi to stay in contact with friends and plan you vacation. We asked to host (or the hosting agency) for help but didn't get any answer.
We stayed only for a weekend, so the (nearly perfect) location was very favorable. The outside temperatures above 35°C turned the small, badly ventilated bathroom into a vapor bath, but I guess that are not normal circumstances.
All in all it is a good apartment with a great value and I would definitely come back.
The lab is in a great part of Kreuzberg, close to everything! It was very clean & had everything we needed. Highly recommended! Thanks Eric!
The Lab is really something very special - my 5 days were too swift by far, I lingered at the door for ages I was so sad to leave it. The space is bright and roomy and lovely and quirky and I never felt like I was tiptoeing through another person's life - I could really play house! More to the point, it's in the most perfect position for unfurling Berlin from. I didn't get to meet Eric in person on this visit which I'm sad for, he seems awesome, but even having never met his presence was felt in a million very loving touches. His tip-book is freaking amazing, and he repeatedly went out of his way to make us comfortable, even dropping spare bedding off while we were out. In all my time in Europe I was the happiest right exactly there, I cannot say enough nice things about Eric's apartment.
Eric and his team were very friendly and helpful in every moment. They're always available just in case of any inconvenience. For example, one day we left the key in the lock of the entrance door, so we couldn't get into the apartment. It was 21:15, we phoned Eric and he came in 10 minutes to unlock the door. The house looks better than in the pictures and everything we needed was ready for us when we got there. Totally recommended!!!
A friend and I stayed in the lab for two months. The apartment was in a great location; close to bars, clubs, supermarket, restaurants and train stations. We had a really great time. No issues :-)
Everything was exactly as described and we had a fantastic stay! Eric was helpful and very friendly and we definitely enjoyed our time in the Lab :-)
This flat is very clean and cosy. We had a wonderful time here. The location is perfect and the street is very calm. The beds and the kitchen are awesome. We enjoy every single minute in here. Thanks Eric. I will be back.

About the Host, Eric
I'm down to earth, like to meet new people, be with friends, travel, cook, eat, drink, snowboard---not necessarily in that order. When I have the time, I like to work with plastic, making art or objects. I am currently building a startup for specialty printing (feel free to ask ;) of art.
I came to Berlin in 2006, absolutely loved the city, and decided to stay. Originally I wanted to open a hostel here, but now I host in apartments instead. Most of the flats I have listed here are from other owners, I take care of them in their absence. Working with multiple apartments can be quite hard work, but my favorite part is meeting with my guests, it is very rewarding.
I know my way around Berlin pretty well, and can give good tips on where to go when you are in the city. I do my best to make sure the flats are accommodating and comfortable, as I am a traveler myself.
I have an agency, we are now a team of 5 people working together, so do not be surprised if you get an answer from Szandra on my account or if you meet someone altogether different at the apartment, you will be well taken care of, and you can always reach someone who can help you out if need be.
People are important! We will do our best to satisfy your needs. Our apartments are kept very clean, and we respond to all feedback. Professionally cleaned sheets and towels are included, so is a hair dryer and iron. You will also find little comforts in our apartments, such as tea, books, spices... Calendars are up to date, and we are on time. We work hard so you can enjoy your vacation!
