Charming maisonette in the building of a recently refurbished old factory, located in Berlin between the old interior patio and a garden. It is located in the Friedrichshain area, near Karl-Marx Allee and the public park Friedrichshain with games areas, tennis courts, cafés and open air cinema. The metro is only a 3 minutes walk away from the apartment, Ostbahnhof and Alexanderplatz are 10 minutes away, as well as the fashionable area of Simon-Dachstr, which has pubs, cafés, clubs and flee markets, etc.
The apartment is located on the ground floor, hidden on courtyard and has a splendid and bright room with a double bed (1,60m x 2,00m), old originals of iron pillars, a concrete floor with underfloor heating, a luxurious, open shower, a separate toilet and a completely furnished kitchen. It also has big windows and a resting area in the garden.

Other Things to Note
IMPORTANT - unfortunately the Berlin Senate passed a law lately saying bookings made after 31.12.2013 will have an additional 5 % city tax. This goes to all bookings make in Berlin - hotels, hostels and vacation apartments, airbnb still doesn't have a system for this and so the payment must be in cash upon arrival. Excluded are business trips, (please tell us on time, if you are coming for a business trip) but they need to be verified.
Please notice that the apartment is not prepared for kids and is a NO SMOKE place. Thanks !!
We were warmly welcomed by Christian to their lovely place which had everything we needed. The place was as described and for us was conveniently located. We are regular visitors to Berlin and would look out for their place the next time we visit. Thank you Christian and Veronica.
I loved staying in this loft!
It was very peaceful and relaxing. I also loved the easy access to public transportation. Christian was very attentive and helpful. The bed was very comfortable. My favorite part was the big rain shower. I highly recommend this space and would definitely stay here again.
Christian was extremely easy to deal with, he communicated well throughout our booking and was very happy to provide recommendations and advice on our arrival to the apartment. The Italian restaurant around the corner is very nice. The metro is nearby. The apartment was clean, fashionably decked out. Whilst we didn't use many of the appliances/kitchen equipment on offer there was ample to work with should it have been needed. Shower was great, very powerful, plenty of hot water. Bed was very comfy, we slept well! I would recommend that people stay here, nice part of town, easy host to deal with, lovely studio apartment.
Christian gaf ons een warm welkom.
Het appartement was precies zoals op de foto's. Mooi, schoon en strak maar met goede smaak ingericht. Wat je niet ziet op de foto's is dat het appartement zich op een soort binnenplaats bevind waardoor het ook zeer rustig is. Je onttrekt je echt even aan de grote stad.
De buurt is geweldig. 3-4 Minuten lopen van de metro, leuke eettentjes in de buurt.
Een absolute aanrader!
Christian and Verónica's place feels very warm and cozy. The location is great, and will be even greater when the U5 will go all the way to Brandenburg Gate.
Communication with Christian was smooth and easy. Although I couldn't meet in person because they were away, I had no difficulties whatsoever about the keys and finding the place, thanks to their friends.
Small attentions that count when I arrived : a map of the city, little notes about food stores and restaurants in the neighborhood, recommendations about exhibits, some local papers... I really appreciated it.
Small inconvenience : I had some noise problems because of the proximity with the bike parking place, sometimes during the night...
Besides that : fully equipped kitchen, beautiful shower, comfy bed... I recommend this place.
Le logement de Christian et Véronica est très agréable,fidèle à la description donnée. La petite cuisine est bien équipée, la petite salle de bain agréable, le tout est chauffé par le sol .
Le logement est bien situé à 5 minutes à pieds du métro .
Un petit bemol: pas de canapé ni de support pour écouter ou lire des disques ou DVD (nous n'avions pas notre ordinateur).
Attention pour ceux qui dorment dans le noir complet: pas de volets ni de rideaux opacifiants.
