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.

We had a wonderful time in this nice, clean and quiet appartement. Eric was right on time, gentle, welcoming. The appartement was Functional, well equipped and very well located in east Kreuzberg: métro, bus, S bahn and night buses very near. Some nice restaurants and the living and trendy Markthalle Neun at very few steps: thursday night street food or sunday vynil brunch, there's always a good reason to visit this market. We'll sûre come back.
Our stay in Eric's place was great! The flat is very well located and easy to find. The perfect size for a couple wishing to explore the city. We had a very friendly reception and the place was spotlessly clean and ready for our arrival at exactly the time agreed. We'll defiantly book again when we return to Berlin. (Hopefully soon!)
Quiet place, nice apartment and great neighborhood. Easy to reach U-bahn and Kreuzberg is an interesting quarter where it is possible to find everything you need. I recommend Eric's flat for a short or a longer stay (so many things to discover in Berlin).
Lovely place in a quiet neighborhood.
Very good place to stay in Berlin!
Leider wurden wir nach dem guten Eindruck, den die Wohnung im Portofolio gemacht hatte, doch ziemlich enttäuscht. Die Wohnung macht insgesamt einen eher "verwohnten" Eindruck. Dringend scheint uns eine Renovierung an verschieden Stellen. Insbesondere der Schimmelbefall im Badezimmer, die dauernd tropfende Armatur in der Dusche, die herab hängende Haltung für den Duschvorhang, der lose Türgriff zum Badezimmer, der Schimmelbefall neben der Waschmaschine in der Küche, die lose aus der Wand hängende Steckdose in der Küche... machen einen ungetrübten Aufenthalt in der Wohnung unmöglich. Dazu kommt noch das nicht sauber gespülte Besteck und Geschirr und andere Kleinigkeiten. Der feucht-schimmelige Geruch schlug sich leider auch in unsere Kleidung, wie wir nach der Rückkehr feststellen mussten. Weiter empfehlen können wir diese Wohnung daher trotz des relativ günstigen Preises und der einigermaßen guten Lage nicht.

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!
