The Space

Berlin is super ! You stay in an artist household in the famous Kreuzberg district - very close to one of the new emerging areas of Berlin: Neukölln. Two friendly open minded, independant men and the 18theen year old Tomcat "Tuddl" live at the Crystal Ball gallery. You have a quiet 23 square meter, art designed room with a comfortable bed for your wish and repose. Inclusive free Wi Fi and a very central position in the City. Located 2 minutes to the Subway U8, Station Schönleinstraße. The neighbourhood is impressed by an amazing mixture of International people and native Berliners: musicians, artists and writers. The "Zickenplatz" is around the corner with restaurants, two fashion boutiques and a reguarly market. Nearby you´ll find almost everthing you like: a lot of galleries, individually designed bars, fashion designers and more innovative locations.
You are able to have an exclusive view on our actual show in the gallery space that is in front of the apartement. There is the well known Maybachufer Bazaar at the Canal twice a week wich is only a stone´s through away.
Due to the constantly changing exhibitions the artworks at Crystal Ball always refresh.
Well if you can´t book our space for your residency because it´s not available take a look at our friends´ amazing location: " Pension Berlin" !

  • Soggiornare da Manfred è stato come sentirsi a casa. La camera era molto grande e l'ambiente è veramente unico . Non è una semplice camera in affitto ma una piccola galleria d'arte ! Manfred è una persona speciale . Ha saputo aiutarmi come un amico . Il quartiere è una piccola città all'interno di Berlino . Tutto è a portata di mano! Raccomando il soggiorno sicuramente

  • If you're traveling to Berlin and you're looking for a lovely place to stay in the heart of the happening areas then this is the spot for you. Centrally located, comfortable and spacious, and the most hospitable hosts you can imagine this place and my hosts made my trip to Berlin as memorable as it was. They know all the local info to help you get around from well priced bike rentals to use record stores to the best burger joints on the globe. The accommodation was as lovely as my hosts were and I am hopeful to return someday soon! I would HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone looking for a great time in Berlin, and the bar and cafe next door are just icing on the cake! Book right away! Also look at Pensioners on the same street, it's also fantastic!

  • I had a lovely stay - Manfred is a hugely nice guy who went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed and felt very comfortable. The room/gallery itself is really special (the pictures kind of speak for themselves) and as a base from which to experience the artier end of Berlin I couldn't recommend it more highly...

  • My idea of heaven ♥.

    Super smiley lovely hosts, and Toodl the cat. I felt very comfortable, welcomed, and cosy. All was very clean and the bed linen too. I even experienced a food substance in Manfred's kitchen which is my most favourite, and blew my away with glee. Still feeling rejuvenated having lived with a house brimming with art. Very thoughtful added little touches for the guests in every room. Big, big thanks to Manfred and Frank truly the best hosts. Heaven!

  • Great hosts, very welcoming. The room is peaceful and spacious and artistic. Perfect location, close to the canal with lovely cafés and bars and convenient transport connections. Very easy to book and check in and out. No complaints at all. A great Berlin experience.

  • Manfred and Frank are so helpful in terms of anything I asked about Berlin! The Kruezberg neighborhood is where many young artists live, so the vibe there is very original and authentic Berlin if you are an art lover. The guestroom itself is different from the hotel rooms you will experience: it has so much character added by the decorations you can see in the pictures! Overall, I had a great stay at Manfred's house.

  • Manfred was a great host, he was very accommodating and friendly. The room is in the back of the gallery and is full of artwork which makes the stay even more pleasant! Highly recommended!!

  • This location was off the hook! Very very very wonderful! The communication was on spot and the apartment is one of the coolest artist spaces I've come across. It was the perfect Berlin experience! I would highly recommend this to anyone in Berlin!

  • My boyfriend and I had a delightful stay at Manfred & Frank's place in Kreuzberg. We could not have asked for a better location -- the gallery and the flat are right next to the subway and surrounded by lively shops, bars and cafes while still keeping an atmosphere of low-key cool. We explored a variety of neighborhoods in the city and Kreuzberg was our favorite, hands down.

    The space itself was spotlessly clean and filled from floor to ceiling with interesting art -- I always found myself stopping to look at a piece as I was heading out the door! -- and the room is quite amply sized.

    However, our hosts were the best part of our stay -- Manfred & Frank were just so friendly and warm. They provided us with great recommendations of places to check out and explore, and didn't even mind repeating directions for us several times when we were unsure of how to get somewhere. We also really appreciated how accommodating Manfred was, especially since we showed up at the Crystal Ball earlier than originally anticipated!

    Manfred & Frank -- thank you very much for the most delightful stay in Berlin!
