This is a cozy, sunny, bohemian 2 bedroom apartment on the 4th floor on Käthe-Niederkirchnerstr. in Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin, a hip, family-friendly neighborhood.
The 2-bedroom apartment has a large bedroom with a queen-sized bed, desk, and living area with sofa, chair and coffee table. The small bedroom (our son's room) has a sleeping loft with a single bed, another single mattress on the floor, and a cute little desk (but not too small for an adult with a laptop!). The kitchen is roomy and sunny, with a dining table. Bathroom and hallway round out this comfortable family apartment.
east-side windows- LOTS of morning sun!
large bedroom room with queen-sized bed, sofa, desk
small bedroom room with cozy sleeping loft with single bed (small- kid or smaller adult) or a longer single mattress also available in the room

quiet, beautiful residential area right next to the Volkspark Friedrichshain
beautiful wooden floors

As you can see from the pictures, it's furnished in a relaxed, bohemian way.
This is a good place for a couple, a family with one or two kids, or a small group of friends traveling together. Please note, however, it important to be relatively quiet in the apartment, no loud music at night or anything that would disturb the neighborhood- so it's not a place for your next party! It's a place to sleep late AFTER you go out partying, if that's what you'd like do in Berlin.
This is a smoking- and pet-free space, without extensive carpeting. For my mild dust, mold and pollen allergies it's a very easy apartment, i consider it allergy-friendly. It's extremely quiet, peaceful, and bright, even in the winter.
Even my mom loves this apartment. ;)
WLAN is of course included!
This neighborhood is less than 10 minutes from alexanderplatz by public transit or bike.
lots of restaurants, cafes, bars, and beautiful green spaces. Parking in the neighborhood is free, but can be hard to find in the evenings. As a last resort we often park next to Volkspark Friedrichshain and walk about 7 minutes home.
If you bring or rent a bicycle, you're welcome to use the locked bike room on the ground floor of our building, across the courtyard- your front door key opens the bike room as well.
We will not be living at the apartment while you're there. Depending on your arrival time we will meet you with the keys, or leave them at a shop across the street under your name. We are available for any questions or issues by telephone, airbnb message or email during your stay.
This is a beautiful, quiet but lively neighborhood close to a big, beautiful park. Most people living here are families with children, so it has a very safe and relaxed feeling, but there are also bars, restaurants, cafes and shopping locales. A few blocks further you get into the intense night life, but you can get away from it again when you're ready to go home.
The apartment is very convenient to the M4 tram line (about a 3 minute walk) which goes directly to Alexanderplatz in a few minutes.
Street parking directly in the neighborhood unfortunately costs money, but it's not far to the next "zone", where street parking is free.
To get here from Tegel airport, take the TXL Bus to Alexanderplatz and transfer to the Tram M4 to stop "Hufelandstrasse". The whole trip takes less than an hour. A taxi also isn't bad, i think around 30 Euros. For more public transit in berlin, search for the BVG website- they also have services in English, very useful.
PLEASE air out the apartment from time to time, especially after showering or cooking! It's important to open the windows regularly because (for non-germans visiting) German houses are crazily well-insulated, which is great, but it means, if you don't open the windows, that moisture isn't gonna get out, and the walls and window frames will mold. We will take the cost of repairing this out of your deposit which sucks for everybody, so just open the windows a lot (For 5 minutes is usually enough!) and avoid issues.
The other people living in the building have jobs and families- please DON'T be too loud or play loud music at night.

Excellent apartment in a very nice area. Master bedroom is open and large. Kitchen is fully kitted out. Second bedroom is smaller, but managed to accommodate two adults. Area is close to a wide range of restaurants and cafes, close to trams and a nice walk to Alexanderplatz. Stayed over Christmas and apartment was warm the whole time.
Rachels apartment has a really positive and chilled out vibe to it. We loved hanging out in the kitchen. Extra plus for high ceilings. Everything was as advertised and more. The street outside is quiet at night and the free parking zone is only 15 mins walk away.
Einfach nur gemütlich!!! Vielen lieben Dank für den sehr netten Kontakt, die sehr gemütliche und saubere Wohnung und die unkomplizierte Abwicklung über Airbnb...Es hat uns super gefallen und unsere Berlin Tage waren perfekt!!! Danke und liebe Grüsse Julius,Steffen und Marike
We stayed at Rachel's place in September 2012 and had a fantastic time.
The apartment was in a perfect location, surrounded by cool cafes, bars and restaurants, and right next to the tram into Alexanderplatz. Also worth a wander across Greifswalder Strasse towards the heart of Prenzlauer berg and White Trash! The apartment itself is so relaxed, a great place to unwind from the city outside, and chill out with a cup of tea in the morning or a beer before hitting the town at night.
Rachel was a great host, always sent friendly and clear communication, and we couldn't recommend staying at this place any more!
We enjoyed our stay at Rachels and she was good about communicating with us and helping with directions. Her husband brought by another set of keys which was helpful since there were three of us. The place is a little unusual in that two of us were sleeping in a kids room, and the upstairs bunk was a rather thin foam pad, which didn't agree with the boney member of our party. I like a firm bed, though, so when we switched all was good and I had fun sleeping in the loft space which was cozy. The only thing we had some trouble with was getting the shower adjusted so it wasn't too hot or cold. It seemed to take a while to change after turning the knob. We liked the location and neighborhood, especially having the little market just down stairs which had excellent, cheep fruit. I think I ate my weight in figs, nectarines and plums. Very easy to get to public transit, too.
Rachel was an amazing host. We had the perfect stay at her nice flat.
We had a great time in Berlin staying at Rachel's place. It's the perfect location in Prenzlauer Berg. Lots of nice coffee places near by. The apt. is cute and perfect for 2 people to stay at. Walking up the stairs can be tyring once in a while but it's also a good workout. :-)
Superb! Very kind person, communication and response was top notch. Everything settled fast and with great attitude.
Wonderful apartment in the perfect little neighborhood. It was clean, spacious, and so comfortable - it felt like home immediately. Its proximity to public transport was also great. I would ABSOLUTELY stay there again in a heartbeat and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in berlin.
Es war ein schönes Wochenende in der gemütlichen Wohnung. Runterum gibt es alles was man braucht und man ist schnell im Zentrum.
