About this listing
LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!
I'd like to welcome you to my cozy, one and only apartment in Berlin, where I stay myself, when I am in the city.
In such a huge and widespread place like Berlin, location is everything. Here you are in the middle of the coolest district of the city, with the main spots just around the corner! Please be aware that this also means that it can get loud, also in the evenings. Especially since there also a bars next to the house, which can get quite busy from time to time.
The apartment offers:
- Authentic Berlin "Altbau" with high ceilings, large windows
- Wooden floors ("Dielen") throughout all of the rooms
- In a historic building in Kreuzberg 36
- 2 bedrooms with a queen size bed each (140 x 200 cm)
- 1 extra queen size mattress (140 x 200 cm)
- 1 large living room
- 1 bathroom
- 1 kitchen (fully equipped with all you need, even a washing machine)
- Fast wireless internet connection (10 MBit/ sec)
- Video projector to watch a movie on DVD or connect your laptop
- Freshly washed linen and towels included
Interaction with Guests
I will meet you at the apartment to hand over the keys. Let me know if you want to check-in or check-out at another time than stated in the listing. I can't guarantee that they will work, but I will do my best.
Of course I'd be happy to give you lots of recommendations and tipps for restaurants, bars, clubs, etc. for your stay here. Also on short notice via text massage, if you have a question during your time in Berlin.
The apartment is located directly at Oranienstrasse between the underground stations "Kottbusser Tor" and "Görlitzer Bahnhof". So you are right in the middle of Kreuzberg, one of the most exciting districts of Berlin. There is a wide range of restaurants and bars just in front of the house. No matter what day, there always is something happening around the corner: an art installation, a new gallery popping up or some small "a cappella" group singing in the courtyard!
The most exciting clubs Berlin has to offer are all in the same neighborhood, just a short walk or cab drive.
There is a variety of fantastic hip and authentic restaurants, cafes and shops in the neighborhood (at relatively low prices). Just opposite of the apartment is the bistro "Bateau Ivre" with one of the best breakfasts in town. Around the corner you'll find the Turkish Restaurant "Hasir" (from Anthony Bourdain's "No Reservations" episode in Berlin). There are also lots of new restaurants with excellent German and Austrian cuisine nearby.
The main advantage of the apartment is its fabulous location. It is located in the centre of Kreuzberg, very close to the district "Mitte", "Friedrichshain" and "Schöneberg". You'll find the underground station "Kottbusser Tor" just around the corner (3 minutes by foot), where the lines U2 and U8 intersect. So you can easily explore the north and south with the U8 or take the U2 to go to west or east. A definite advantage in such a huge city like Berlin.
However, the best thing to do is to explore the neighborhood by bike. You can reach most of the sightseeing spots like "Checkpoint Charly", the "Museum Island" and "Brandenburger Tor" easily within 10 minutes from the apartment.
Other Things to Note
This is the perfect spot if you want to feel the vibe of this amazing city!
It is very much my home so I welcome responsible people, who are happy to be here. I am always reachable for any questions and have friends in the neighborhood, who are welcoming and available for any extra assistance.
Please note that since its my private apartment, those are also "my" neighbours, so please be quieter after 10 pm. Also be careful if you turn up the sound system for listening to music or watching a DVD on the projector.

Please respect all things and people. No unruly or illegal behavior on entire property whatsoever.
