This quiet apartment is located in Kreuzberg, on the border of Mitte, the center of Berlin. Kreuzberg is a lively, artsy, and very affordable part of western Berlin. Being very multicultural, it attracts a variety of visitors and residents. Many festivities and events take place here, from the May 1st street parties, to the Carnival of Cultures. Görlitzer Park, one of the largest parks in Berlin, is in the spring summer and fall alive with picnickers and barbecuists, frolicking dogs and flying frisbees.
There are many possibilities in Kreuzberg. The areas near Schlesisches Tor, Oranienstrasse, and the beloved Bergmann Kiez are a great start. Numerous great clubs, unique bars, cozy cafes, and delicious restaurants make for more than enough to keep you busy.
There are many attractions around, from the daytime touristy stuff to the night-time Club action. There are several supermarkets as well as restaurants within easy walking distance.
Just in front of the door is a stop for the 265 Bus. The apartment is 7 minute’s walk (or one stop with bus) from Schlesisches Tor on the U1 (green) line. Ostbahnhof is 2 stops apway with bus, and offers S-Bahn and Intercity trains.
You will have access to easy directions after you
reserve this apartment.

Appartement très bien situé, propre et lumineux. Je le recommande sans hésitation !
Host was responsive, helpful, had somebody meet me there on time and left a good list of restaurants he liked in the area.
We were welcomed by a friend of Eric outside of the apartment. She showed us the flat and the manual over the place and some local recommendations before she left. The place was clean and provided what we needed for our stay.
The apartment was great located just a short walk to U-ban and restaurants and bars in Kreuzberg.
Only downside was that the wifi didn't work our last two days and the tv and dvd didn't work.
Our flight was late at night and Eric let us keep our bags in the apartment witch was good.
So overall, we were very satisfied with the apartment and could see ourself staying there again!
Great apartment, exactly as shown in the photos! The apartment was clean with all essentials included. The owner was very kind.
We had a great stay and fully recommend!
Thanks for everything.
Leider haben wir Eric nicht persönlich getroffen, die Kommunikation im Vorfeld war freundlich und schnell. Schlüsselübergabe war problemlos. Die Wohnung an sich liegt verkehrsgünstig; mit freien Parkplätzen vor der Tür. Leider war dadurch bedingt etwas lauter. Das eine ohne das andere geht halt nicht. Zur Wohnung selbst: Es ging so. Leider das Bad doch etwas "schmuddelig" und das Bett für uns zu durch gelegen. Da passten unsere Ansprüche nicht zur Wohnung oder umgekehrt.
We had an amazing week at Eric's apartment! It is very comfortable and cozy, with a lot of light. The neighborhood is full of supermarkets, parks, bars and metro in a walking distance.
Super easy check-in and out! Great location in Kreuzberg, super central and close to a lot, would recommend!

About the Host, Eric
I'm down to earth, like to meet new people, be with friends, travel, cook, eat, drink, snowboard---not necessarily in that order. When I have the time, I like to work with plastic, making art or objects. I am currently building a startup for specialty printing (feel free to ask ;) of art.
I came to Berlin in 2006, absolutely loved the city, and decided to stay. Originally I wanted to open a hostel here, but now I host in apartments instead. Most of the flats I have listed here are from other owners, I take care of them in their absence. Working with multiple apartments can be quite hard work, but my favorite part is meeting with my guests, it is very rewarding.
I know my way around Berlin pretty well, and can give good tips on where to go when you are in the city. I do my best to make sure the flats are accommodating and comfortable, as I am a traveler myself.
I have an agency, we are now a team of 5 people working together, so do not be surprised if you get an answer from Szandra on my account or if you meet someone altogether different at the apartment, you will be well taken care of, and you can always reach someone who can help you out if need be.
People are important! We will do our best to satisfy your needs. Our apartments are kept very clean, and we respond to all feedback. Professionally cleaned sheets and towels are included, so is a hair dryer and iron. You will also find little comforts in our apartments, such as tea, books, spices... Calendars are up to date, and we are on time. We work hard so you can enjoy your vacation!
