Great location, next to Checkpoint Charlie.
Apartment beautiful and clean, everything you need is in.
Big up for the towel-swan-shaped on the beds.
Internet connection went off few times during the 3 days we stayed, could have been painful for a Business trip (fortunately it wasn't).
The apartment was very well located, just 10 minutes walking to Checkpoint Charlie and there is a bus stop in front of the building which takes you to Alexanderplatz. It was very comfy and modern, just as the pictures.
Wifi didn't work at all. You needed to connect 3 or 4 times after log in but it didn't last longer than 2 minutes.
Prima ontvangst door de zoon van de eigenaar, hij wist alleen niet veel over de buurt te vertellen. Appartement is niet geschikt voor 4 volwassenen als het slaapbed niet gemaakt wordt. Is nu met een houtje provisorisch gerepareerd waardoor je schuin ligt. Onze kinderen hadden hier gelukkig geen last van maar dit kan echt niet met 4 volwassenen. Internet werkt redelijk - soms wel en soms geen verbinding. Supermarkt (Kaiser) ligt op 5 minuten loopafstand ri Friedrichstrasse. Verkeerslawaai van de drukke weg als je raam open hebt. Verder prima zoals beschreven.
We were pretty disappointed with our host and the apartment. It all began with a misunderstanding related to our arrival time. Before arriving to Berlin we spent 2 days in Amsterdam. Knowing that we will not have cell phones in Europe, we had sent an email to Michael 2 days before we left Toronto. We specified our arrival time 8:00 pm. But for some reason Michael didn't get our email, and wasn't waiting for us. (It will be a separate question for airbnb why the email wasn't delivered and why I wasn't informed that something was wrong). The concierge at the building was very unpleasant, even rude, and didn't allow us to use his phone. Fortunately, there were some nice Berliners on the street who let us use their cell phone to call Michael. He spent couple of minutes scolding us. He didn't believe that I had sent him an email, he didn't want to hear me, and he kept on lecturing me about how we are not professional! Finally he arrived, let us in, and charged us 25 for late arrival. Both sides in this situation were equally right, and equally wrong, yet Michael behaved as we were little children that needed some scolding. Very unprofessional, I would say.
Please note that in addition to 25 euros late arrival charge, we had to pay additional 15 euros for some kind of tax.
The apartment is at good location, it was nice, and clean but:
1. Sofa bed in the living room was broken. Two people who slept there had trouble sleeping: if one person gets up, the other falls down.
2. One chair was broken
3. Bathroom door knob was broken.
4. The wi-fi would unexpectedly go down many times a day.
Not all of that is a big deal if you had a pleasant host, but after a long lecture about professionalism, we were really upset with these malfunctions.
On top of that the view is far from spectacular.
Michael spoiled our stay in Berlin, and I would not recommend him as a host.
l'appartamento è bellissimo come da foto. La zona ottima, centrale e ben collegata con tutti i mezzi (metro a pochi passi e fermata autobus sotto il palazzo). Ospitalità impeccabile!
Very good location. Convenient to many areas. Exactly as described. Clean, quiet, nice.
