Cute & Quiet Berlin Artist's Flat

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Straßmannstraße, Berlin, Berlin 10249, Germany

The Space

Our quiet apartment in Friedrichshain with a sunny southern view, is right on the M10--the one main train line that runs all night every night. Just north of the Spree river and old section of the Wall ("East Side Gallery"), we're very centrally located--minutes to Prenzlauerberg, Alexanderplatz, or trendy Kreuzberg. Our street also has an incredible bakery, Vietnamese and Italian Restaurant if you don't feel like wandering far. Three grocery stores are within four blocks and the sweet shopping and restaurant district of Friedrichshain is a ten minute walk away.

Our apartment has one private bedroom with a large queen size bed. Our living room, which you have to pass through to get to the kitchen, will sleep an additional two people quite comfortably. Because you have to pass through the living room, our apartment is ideal for a couple or a family.

We're two artists--DJ/musician/dancer/designer--so our apartment is colorful and full photographs, concert posters and our record and book collection. !Please don't book our place if you have issues with queer and punk imagery! We also own a clothing shop in Kreuzberg called EXIT that we'll gladly point you to. Our apartment is a hate free zone.

We look forward to your visit!

PS - all construction is over, but the full balcony is no longer there, just a French balcony.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My girlfriend and I had a wonderful stay at Kate's place! Lots of nice natural light, very spacious (at least by New York standards!), very metro accessible.

  • Awesome flat! Great location! Would recommend anyone stay here who wants to be near the cool neighborhoods of Berlin. Very friendly host, no problems at all - would stay here again no doubt!
    Thanks so much to both of you! :)

  • Everything was good. I met juan in the house and he gave me the basilar information about the apartment. It's well connected with the center thanks the tram M10 (1 min from the apartment) and the underground (10 min). I found out it's a warm ambient even when outside is cold. Good communication with the host via email and text message.
    Thanks for your hosting!

  • Kate and Juan were great hosts. Kate was very communicative before our stay, and Juan was flexible for our check-in and showed us around their place and helped us when we arrived.

    The apartment is in a beautiful part of Berlin; there are all the bars, restaurants and shops you'd need within walking distance.

    The place was warm and very comfortable, and cooking was a breeze in the well-equipped kitchen. The bedroom doesn't have blackout curtains so you might rise with the sun but this wasn't a problem for us.

    If we're ever in Berlin again, we'd love to stay there again.

  • Absolutely LOVED the Berlin punk warm welcome!! Centrally located, super clean, quiet and intelligently stimulating. I will definitely stay at Kate and Juan's place again and again. One delightful caveat is that the books and the massive record collection might keep you from even venturing outside the flat, beware ;-)

  • An nice and very original appartment, to live the Berlin experience fully!
    Well located, 2 tramway stations away from the very lively neighborhood of Friedrischain, lots of bars and restaurants.
    Juan and Katie are very accommodating and nice.

  • My little daughter, my wife and me stayed at Kate's flat in the first week of 2014. We had a really great time, Berlin just stole our hearts! The apartment is in a cool position, just a few meters walking to the M10 stop... from there, you can be wherever you want! The house is very nice, warm, coloured... the bathroom is so big! Just a few things were not really so cool.. first, it's a top floor with no elevator: we arrived with 2 huge bags and other stuff, i thought i was gonna die... by the way, during the week, when you are with no bags, it's so much easier . Second thing (nothing terrible eh!) is the bed, not very confortable! The second day we thought about buying a new mattress at the shop right at the street corner, eheh! Beside this, it was really a great experience. We just met Juan at the ceck-in, and he was very nice with us! I totally raccomand this place.

  • Comfortable, central and well connected. In a peaceful neighborhood. The bed was a bit uncomfortable!

    Comoda, centrale e ben collegata. In un quartiere tranquillo. Il letto un po'scomodo!

    Konforlu, merkezi ve kolay ulaşılabilir. Sakin bir muhitte. Yatak biraz rahatsız.

  • Great flat in a cool neighborhood. Super convenient with the trains. Heavy luggage might be a bit unwieldy as it's a four floor walk up. In-apartment laundry and kitchen were much appreciated! Two beds in separate rooms is convenient for friends traveling together.

Performance Artist
My partner (Spanish-American) and I (German-American) are two artists originally from San Francisco now living in Berlin since seven years. I am a performance artist, musician and writer and he is a DJ, musician and clothing designer. Together we own a clothing store in Kreuzberg called EXIT. In the back I have my studio and noncommercial costume lending space, Carni Closet, which I also use to host informal performance salons on a monthly basis. Hope you'll visit our store and meet us during your stay in Berlin!
