About this listing
Hi! My one-bed flat is spacious, clean and filled with character. Conveniently located just a stones throw from Schönhauser Allee U and S-Bahn, and in pretty Prenzlauer Berg, it's the perfect base to discover Berlin.
A typical Berlin pad with large open rooms and lots of features - high ceilings, real wood floors, all done in a slightly shabby chic style... It was renovated only a little while back so is in great condition and has a new bathroom.
Perfect for couples or a small family! Sorry, no party groups as the house is super quiet and we don't want our neighbours to be disturbed...
We have a kingsize bed with a comfy mattress, but there is also a small day bed, which sleeps one person.
Interaction with Guests
We love hosting friends, family & Airbnbers here from time to time. We have many international friends, so are used to having guests around. If you need any tips just let me know!
Public transport and a shopping center are only a two-minute walk away and the neighbourhood is filled with shops and cafés. There's even a grocery store and a bakery right downstairs - so if you do come home late at night you're greeted with the smell of fresh bread. We're a fifteen minute walk from Mauerpark, a ton of hip restaurants and great shopping on Kastanienallee and Pappelallee.
Other Things to Note
We only recently moved in and are putting lots of time and care into designing our home - so there are a few gaps, which we're filling slowly but surely.
Please don't smoke inside the flat - balcony is ok but please close the door.
We have a strict ‘no party’ policy - so sorry, no large groups. If you want to invite visitors, please check with us beforehand. There are young families in the building and we wouldn’t want them disturbed.
Please note that the use of illegal streaming services is forbidden and any liability for using such sites will be passed on directly to the guest.
Please treat my home with care. Try not to scratch the walls and please be careful with the furniture as I have a couple of antiques.
Paula was a great host, very friendly and helpful. Her flat is just like in the pictures, extremely clean, spacious and very cosy. It's well located with many nice restaurants and cafes near by. Definitively a 5 stars!!!
Paula was an incredible host, very warm and welcoming. We met with her before we stayed in her flat given that the date of our actual arrival, we'd be arriving quite late (after midnight). She was very helpful with giving us a tour of the apartment, information on the neighborhood, and tips on things to do. The flat itself is gorgeous - very, very large for Berlin and is decorated very tastefully. And my goodness, the bed is so comfortable!
The outdoor balcony is a lovely space to have some wine and people watch. The location really cannot be beat - directly in Prenzlauer Berg, about a block from the U-Bahn and S-Bahn stations, and within easy walking distance of many cute bars and restaurants.
We had a perfect holiday in Berlin! Thanks to Paula's apartment which is very cosy, beautiful and much larger than we thought! Paula and her friend Chris were both very helpful when checking in and out. The area of Prenz is really nice with lots of cafes, bars and restaurants. We really enjoyed our stay and would like to come back soon!!!
Staying at Paula's was a wonderful experience and the central location made it easy to explore the city and flop into bed when we were tired! The apartment was very spacious, welcoming, comfortable and clean. Perfect experience!
We stayed in Paulas apartment for 4 nights and it was just wonderful. It's nicely located right next to a train station, and it's large, bright, clean and has a comfy bed :)
Would absolutely recommend Paula as a host, she made us feel welcome and gave very good instructions and tips.
Paula & Jon's apartment was our first Airbnb experience, and we definitely couldn't have asked for a better one! Although we haven't met Paula in person, we felt she was someone to count on- she managed our reservation when she was in the US, far from home, and as planned Jon welcomed us in the apartment as soon as we arrived to the city (check-in time was never mentioned and was totally flexible). Beautifully decorated and furnished, clean and cozy, the apartment was as in the pictures and better. Jon, charismatic and friendly, was very communicative and helpful throughout our stay. Thanks a lot for letting us into your home and best of luck with all your exciting future plans!
Paula's apartment is absolutely beautiful and she was a great host - our four night stay over New Year's Eve could not have been any nicer. The apartment is spacious, beautifully decorated, and cosy all at once. There are shops nearby (including an amazing bakery for breakfast pastries less than a minute away) and the flat is right by the S- and U-bahn station which made it very easy to get to the centre of the city.
Paula was very helpful and left maps and guides for us when we arrived, as well as a bottle of gluhwein, which was greatly appreciated!
We had no issues at all while we were there, and on our final day on the apartment we actually didn't want to leave. It was the perfect place to both explore Berlin from, and to spend a relaxing evening in after a day of walking around.
I would highly recommend Paula and her apartment to anyone who wants to visit Berlin.

About the Host, Paula
Massive foodie, photography enthusiast, lover of everything vintage & arty, 'multi-culti', love to discover new places by foot.
I work in comms and I'm one of those people who never sit still. Born in Poland, raised in Germany, my family now lives in France, I lived in the U.K. for 3 years before coming to Berlin in early 2013 for the next big challenge.
I love Airbnb because it enables me to work from all across the globe and because it makes me feel at home wherever I go. I've met some amazing people and experienced places as a near-local, and am super excited for what's still to come.
I'm a fan of long hellos and short goodbyes.
