Manfred is divine! So friendly and easy to talk to. I loved staying at the Crystal Ball. You will too if you like art and unconventional accommodation. I had everything I needed and would definitely return.
Manfred is a very friendly host and Crystal Ball is an interesting place to stay. It is a indeed a gallery so you get a glimpse of what's going on at an art gallery as you go in and out. You will need a bit of inclination towards art to appreciate the experience ;)
Me and my boyfriend visited Berlin for the weekend. For me, it was my first time in Berlin. The location of the apartment of just great; at the centre of the beautiful Kreuzberg! It is very easy to go to the several neighborhoods from here -especially for us, since we took our bikes with us! Also the bedroom was very impressive to stay in because of all the arts on the wall, and the unique bed. Manfred and Frank are very kind hosts! Very helpful, highly recommended! Unfortunately we had to miss the exhibition in their art gallery on Sunday! It will not be my last time in Berlin, hopefully we'll meet some other time again!
I had a wonderful time staying with Manfred and Frank in Kreuzberg.
The art gallery is perfectly located in the heart of super hip Kreuzberg, with many restaurants and cafes around. The gallery is also very close to public transport options but I took the chance to walk on foot into Berlin city centre each day, which was also possible.
The guest room is amazingly decorated (exactly as you see in the pics) and is very large - plenty to look at and plenty of space to spread out!
Everything was clean and the atmosphere very laid back. I felt instantly comfortable and welcome with Manfred and Frank who are both extremely helpful and friendly.
I highly recommend a stay at the Crystal Ball Gallery in Kreuzberg if you want to see a different and up and coming side to Berlin.
Wonderful location, wonderful guys in a unique space. Manfred and Frank were very friendly, helpful and welcoming and their place is perfect for anyone wanting to share a warm, creative and convenient home in Berlin. Thanks!
