Spontaner und herzlicher Gastgeber. Die zentrale Lage macht auch eine sehr schlicht eingerichtete Unterkunft wett. Wer sich ins Herz von Berlin stürzen will und keine Luxus Ansprüche hat ist hier gut aufgehoben.

I booked this place for a one day stay and I had a very bad experience in communicating with the host. I could not even check in and stay in the apartment. I confirmed my booking with the owner and I made an appointment for 9 30 AM for check in two days before arrival, which was not confirmed by the host and then on the day, noticing no response, I postpone the appointment to 11 30 AM. Then also I did not receive any confirmation. So as I arrived at the apartment at 11 45 AM ofcourse I did not find anybody. Rang the bell, no response and somehow entered when somebody came out of the building. Went to the apartment floor and rang the bell at door, no response and then trying to call all the possible phone no. given including AIRBNB customer care, repeatedly. Did not receive any response. Messaged and mailed the owners, no response and this process continued and I waited for about 2 hours and then decided to leave. Then I receive a message from one of the owners to contact the other at 3 45 PM when I am already in another part of Berlin! But then I had no credits to call back and also I was busy looking for an alternative accomodation. It does not make sense to check in the evening and leave next day morning when I booked the apartment for a day. So I request the owner now to refund the money as it is clear that it was a miscommunication and reluctance from their part which lead to a troublesome day for me after paying 100 euro for the accomodation. I would definitely not recommend this place for stay. I expect a justification from AIRBNB atleast to refund my cost because I could not even check-in.
We lived in Van Bo's lejliged in a weekend - the apartment is very central to shopping and various attractions and has a lovely balcony.
The apartment is far from as nice as the pictures on the air bnb. There is no furniture and lighting compared to the pictures, so we were a little disappointed when we arrived. The apartment seems uninhabited other than by air bnb guests.
Unfortunately, we came a few hours too late to check in which fortunately was not a problem. Apart from that, communication with the landlord has been difficult since Van Bo's father did not speak English.
