We'd love for you to stay at our beautiful and big (117 m²/1259 ft²) design apartment featuring high ceilings, original moldings, a luxury bathroom with real Finnish sauna, stimulating art and large kitchen in hip and lovely Prenzlauer Berg.
This space blends modern minimalism with traditional Berlin character. The entire apartment was renovated last year under the supervision of two brilliant Finnish designers, Martti Mela and Tuula Vitie.
The apartment is in an Altbau building constructed in 1906.
Beautiful high ceilings with original mouldings
Free Wi-Fi and selection of books about Berlin
Large kitchen with all new appliances including a Bialetti espresso pan, chef's set of knives, toaster, blender, kettle, induction cooktops, dishwasher and washer/dryer. The kitchen is stocked with organic olive oil, organic balsamic and other every day essentials as well as some great cookbooks.
Luxury bathroom with complimentary Aesop premium shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and lotion. Hair dryer and iron available as well.
Real Finnish sauna.
A balcony overlooking lively Prenzlauer Allee.
Baby bed, a high chair and kids toys, books, and puzzles.
We use eco-friendly cleaning supplies and the apartment is professionally cleaned.
One bedroom off the courtyard and one bedroom/2nd living room with very large, heavy doors and independent access to the bathroom, guaranteeing privacy for its occupants. Our guests report that the sofa bed in the 2nd bedroom is very comfortable.
The place can sleep five comfortably but is best suited for four.
If you have any questions about the place or the layout, don't hesitate to send me a message. We always do our best to accommodate our guests' special requests.
The apartment is near bicycle rentals, several organic grocery stores (regular supermarkets too), and all of the wonderful cafes, restaurants, bars, brunch spots, and parks that Prenzlauer Berg has to offer.
There are great playgrounds for kids close to the apartment. Our favorite is just across the street on Sredzkistrasse because it has a circus theme.
Interaction with Guests
When we rent out our place, we're usually out of town so our friends Christian, Essi and Valentin host for us. They are adorable young Berliners with tons of knowledge about the local art scene and night life.
We have put down Check-out time as noon and Check-in time as 3, but we can be flexible except in cases where we need to turn the apartment around quickly for the next guest.
To quote from the Air bnb neighborhood guide for Prenzlauer Berg:
Snuggled between Berlin’s contemporary glass towers and austere concrete slabs, Prenzlauer Berg exudes a wholesome atmosphere comprised of tree-lined streets, colourful boutiques, and a sprightly mix of new parents and university students. The artists and alternative individuals who populated Prenzlauer Berg in the 1990s have grown up. Now, the babies of these once-upon-a-time bohemians clamour for organic soy ice cream while young scholars pass hookah hoses, exemplifying a dynamic fusion of multiple generations.
Characteristics of the neighborhood:
a million cafés
The place also has easy access to Alexanderplatz and the S-bahn is two tram stops away. The tram stops half a block from the apartment at Danzigerstrasse.
Smoke only on the balcony. Please take your shoes off when inside the apartment. Thank you!
We enjoyed our stay at Mary's apartment in Prenzlauer Berg. Loads of sunny space, comfortable, tastefully renovated, and great feng shui. Quiet neighborhood, lots of affordable places to eat, bars, wonderful bakeries, and street market on Kollwitz Platz on Friday and Saturdays. We had a great time there and hope to make a return visit!
Mary's apartment is that kind of place you wish you'd have in all your favorite cities around the world, so you can always visit and feel at home! Great communication, easy check-in, and prompt response whenever there was a question. The location was also perfect for us, easy to get around with the tram, but also within walking distance of good restaurants, pubs, coffee shops, an organic food coop, and a beautiful farmers' market. We'd love to come again !!
Mary's apartment was handy to transport and well presented. It exudes warmth, homeliness and class. The sauna, the rain shower and the heated tiles were particular treats that we looked forward to on a winters day out for 4 of us. The kitchen was well stocked up with gadget and utensils and the wifi was good. Don't let the facade fool you the inside is fabulous and value for money and I would like to stay here again. We were also met by Essi who gave us instructions and information throughout.
Mary's apartment was the most amazing place we have ever stayed. It is spacious, beautifully decorated and functional. The rain shower and sauna are amazing after a day of exploring the apartment is very close to the city centre with trans outside the door. The beds are very comfortable including the sofa bed! There is more than enough room for four and I would definitely stay here again.
great apartment in my favourite part of berlin. loads of shops and restaurants in the area. the host was very polite and responsive. the place was comfortable and clean. wifi sufficiently fast. it's as nice as it looks in the pictures. recommended!
Die Beschreibung und die Fotos geben kaum wieder, wie schön die Wohnung ist. Wirklich ein Traum in Weiß. Wir haben zu Weihnachten Freunde und Verwandte zu Besuch. Jeder war begeistert, wie gut man eine Altbauwohnung renovieren kann.
Die Wohnung liegt an einer viel befahrenen Straße samt Straßenbahn, ist aber nicht zu laut. Nach hinten raus kann man völlig ruhig schlafen. Zum Helmholz-Kiez gegenüber ist es ein Katzensprung zu erstklassigen Restaurants und Cafes und Shops.
Die Kommunikation mit Mary war optimal, der Empfang von Valentin herzlich.
Thankyou Mary for the wonderful experience of your apartment on Prenzlauer Allee. It surpassed all our expectations and was so elegant and spacious. Christian was an absolutely delightful host, and made us feel so welcome. thank you again. The sauna was beautifully relaxing after a long cold day of sightseeing.
I'm an easy-going thirty-something originally from the Bay Area. I love good food, films and books and spend as much time walking as possible. I try to keep work to a minimum and enjoy life. I love staying in other people's places when I travel and I love being an Air bnb host.
