An authentic experience in the heart of East Berlin. This boutique apartment has panoramic views from the 21st floor of the highest residential building in Berlin, right next to the TV Tower.

The Space

The Loft Berlin offers this unique studio apartment located in Hackerschermarkt, Mitte - right in the middle of East Berlin.

While you look out over the former GDR, nearly all the way to Moscow, you will get a feel of what life was like while the wall was still up. This building was built for and occupied by the highest members of the GDR government.

This boutique apartment is named after the activist and humanist, Rosa Luxemburg, who fought for rights for the working class on the very streets 21 floors below this apartment.

Ideal for couples coming to visit for a short break or even the solo-ist looking for an interesting and unique experience in this vibrant and edgy city.

Situated directly between Hackerscher markt and Alexanderplatz train stations it is walking distance to all the main tourist attractions such as Museum Island, Alexanderplatz, Unter Den Linden and the TV Tower. It has dozens of bus, tram and train links to all parts of Berlin right outside the front door. The location is easy to find and very accessible from all the airports or train stations.

Parking space available for those that bring a car.

  • Enjoyed our stay in this apartment. Great location and great view. Small, but we knew that going in. Someone met us there and showed us in when we arrived, and was very responsive to our communications. TV was a little difficult to operate, but we weren't really in Berlin to watch TV anyway. Would stay there again.

  • The people managing the apartment seemed very professional and were always prompt in their replies to questions and were very flexible when it came to meeting someone to check in and for a late check out (Just make sure you clearly understand when and where you are meeting the host).
    The apartment was nice and quaint and had a spectacular view of Berlin! I thought that it was cool because it used to be housing for Soviet officers in East Germany and so you get to stay in a place with some history and character. Also great about this place is its location; it close to a lot of public transportation options and most big tourist sites are within easy walking distance. There are also plenty of options for places to eat and shop. As noted by other reviewers, just be aware that there is a train line that runs right by the building so if you foresee that as being a problem I would probably look at other options. It's not super loud though since the apartment is so high up and if you close the windows that seems to isolate the sound out fairly well.

  • Studio idéalement situé. A la porte de l'immeuble la station Hackesher Markt ou à 200 mètres l'arrêt de bus Marienkirche qui dessert les lignes 100, 200 et surtout le TXL qui relie directement en 40mn l'aéroport de Tegel.
    Le studio est suffisant pour 2 personnes. Il est décoré dans un style "RDA récup" mais avec tout le confort actuel (super lit en taille et qualité), cuisine équipée, fer à repasser, sèche cheveux...
    Au 21ème étage, la vue est magnifique; l'immeuble est calme. Le quartier est sympa avec de nombreux resto, bars et un Kaiser pour les courses du quotidien.
    Par contre, 2 éléments importants à savoir avant de partir :
    - quand a fenêtre est ouverte (début juin 34° la journée) il faut vivre avec le bruit incessant, jour et nuit, du métro aérien. A raison de 1 passage par minute on peut vite ne pas le supporter. La nuit il y a une petite climatisation.
    - le bac à douche n'est pas facilement accessible. Il faut grimper l'équivalent d'une marche1/2 et pour descendre c'est un peu délicat.

    En conclusion, pour ma part c'est un studio sympa, bien situé, propre, confortable et je suis prête à y retourner à l'occasion.

  • This is a great find in a very interesting and centrally located part of Berlin. The apartment is very comfortable for two people. It looks exactly as pictured. The apartment is on the 21st floor of a former East Berlin apartment building. It has a simplicity which reflects the standards of the East Berlin experience. And it has a fabulous view! We loved breakfast sitting at the open window, overlooking former East Berlin. It should be noted that the building also overlooks a set of railroad tracks, the noise from which can be a nuisance. But closed windows help control that problem. The hosts were very accomodating, and the agent who checked us in was responsive to our inquiries, prompt, and very helpful. Berlin is a very interesting and fun visit, and this apartment was perfect for us.

    Response from Mel And Sam:

    Thanks Kate - glad you enjoyed your stay. It was an unusually warm day that day which is now definitely gone and it's back to usual temperatures - looks like our summer came all in that day! We will definitely add another fan in there for those (all too rare) hot nights :)

  • Excellent, awesome place! The room has a great view of Berlin, it's right next the tower in Alexanderplatz, right next to Hackersher mkt station, and it's a very clean and tidy place with everything you need. Also, it has wi-fi, which is great for travelers. The girl that receveid us was very kind and helpful, and gave us a map showing some good places nearby.

    I will definitely come back to Berlin, and it sure will be at Mel and Sam's place.

  • The good points: Location is great, View from 21st floor is great. Very nice for a couple. Flexible owner regarding hours - we could leave our luggage a few hours more We had hair dryer, Ironing was available. WiFi works fine.
    The other points: The sound of the trains comes in , you may find it noisy if you're use to a silent room. The shower is too high from the floor - watch your step and hold tight! Do not rely on cooking too much , but we didn't come to cook. We couldn't set the radio/ Very small table in the room.

  • A lovely apartment with a great location in Mitte around the corner from Hackescher Market. The apartment was clean and well appointed. I was met on time and Rebecca (who met me) was kind enough to explain some of the geography of Berlin which was a big help. I'd happily stay here again and have no problem recommending it to others.

  • This apartment is just amazing. Sooo central, very close to the S-baun that will take you to the airport and around Berlin. The view is awesome, and the apartment is perfect for a short stay in the city. It does not have a full kitchen, but we ate out and you could cook if you wanted to. Mel and Sam are great, they will answer all of your questions very fast. It was also very nice that they had a bunch of tourist info at the loft.

    The only complaint was the company that takes care of check in and check out. They asked us for extra money since we arrived after 21.00, the women that was meeting us was late and she also wanted my credit card info as a deposit. Since we already left a deposit on AirBnB we did not agree on leaving credit card info, nor paying extra for a late check in, and she was ok with that. She did not answer when I tried to contact her about check out, but Sam did so that was also solved. Overall experience was great, and the apartment, again, is wonderful. I would stay there again!!

  • I had an amazing time in Berlin thanks to the girls' great apartment and helpful tips. The place is very cosy and the girls were very conscious of my comfort. They were also incredibly fast at responding if ever I contacted them. The apartment has an awesome view and is right in the centre of everything moments to transport, food, shopping, cafes and bars. Perfect place to stay for a single person or couple. I wanna go back!
