About this listing
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 Loft Berlin offers this unique studio apartment located in Hackerschermarkt, Mitte - right in the center of East Berlin.
With panoramic views from the 21st floor you can look out over what was formerly the GDR, nearly all the way to Moscow, and get a feel of what life was like while the wall was still up. The building is occupied by an eclectic mix of hipster locals and former GDR citizens, and was built in 1967 for the highest members of the GDR government.
This boutique apartment is named after arguably the most glamorous woman to emerge from Berlin in the past century, Marlene Dietrich, a true Berliner. With laquered exposed concrete walls and chandeliers Marlene captures the essence and extravagance of the roaring 1920s cabaret era with a twist of shabby chic.
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.

The apartment has very good location - it is in walking distance to different bahn lines and has many great places around it
Shops: wood wood, cos, & other stories, nike, muji, mykita, rsvp etc
Cafes: barn, kantine, dudu, mozarella bar, monsieur vuong, do you read me, etc
Galleries: KW, eigen + art, museum insel, etc
Check in and out were very convenient - the hosts approved early check-in and late check-out.
The view was fantastic.
Still there were several drawbacks:
1) Room was dusty, especially under the cupboard, which was the only space for the suitcase which I had to was after I had put it there
2) Two apartments were probably made out of one, so the door is super thin and you can hear your neighbours as if they are near you - but we had neighbours only for a couple of days, so this was fine
3) The only socket near the bed (to charge the phone) was behind the bedside table and the sconce was pluged into it. Anyway there was too dusty behind the bedside table to unplug it.
4) The drain in the bathtub was totally clogged but the hosts fixed it the next day after I asked them
Plus there is a big railwaystation right under the window and the trains went to and fro from early morning till late night. The noise was not disturbing for me, but keep in mind that you can hear every train.
Overall I am satisfied with the stay, this apartment is a good value for money and the most disturbing factor for me was dust.
Thanks for letting us know - we've taken the issue up with the cleaning company to ensure that it's addressed, also there is a socket near the bed but the cleaner had obviously pushed it under so we also let them know for that. Unfortunately there's not much we can do about the trains - it's the middle of the city so noise is a by-product of staying central even with double glazed windows. We're glad you enjoyed your stay :)
loft marlene was the perfect place for berlin! right next to alexanderplatz and hackescher markt you can reach everything easily by s-bahn or u-bahn! we were warmly welcomed by ian who gave us the keys, showed us the room and had a little chat with each other. we felt completely comfortable at loft marlene and recommend it to everyone who'd like to be in the center of the city of berlin! the room was such as wonderful as on the pictures, the view was fantastic! we already felt like berliners there :-)
thank you for an amazing stay, we will come back when visiting berlin again!
Location of the apartment is superb. Including everyday shopping, eating and from transpontation point of view. Great that has Internet access. . If one likes to sleep with open window must tolerate noise coming from Bahn. Very comfortable bed. Bathroom Ok. All other (frig, furniture) at minimum. Altogether we had what we needed.We were greeted at arrival by young person, which gave us key and introduced to facility.
The flat is good - what is see if what you get from the pictures...so a clean bedroom that works for two people who care more about seeing Berlin than being at home. Location is great and the company that did the liasing for key drop off was great.
The apartment is exactly as pictured and is in a great location! The listing is operated by a company that owns a lot of properties, so the person who let us into the apartment was a bit confused and tried to make us pay an extra fee.
Excellent location, right next to Alexanderplatz. Apartment was perfect for us; very comfortable bed & great views of this wonderful city. Very helpful to us about our late checkin. We could also leave our bags there as we'd late flight home. Loved Berlin & this apartment helps you make the very best of your time here. Definatly going back........Thank you! Sheila & Mike
We really enjoyed our stay at Loft Marlene. The apartment had a great feel to it and the views were amazing. The person who came to greet us was very helpful with all sorts of information. The location was a great starting point to our outings with easy access to trams, buses and taxis. There were also a lot of restaurants within walking distance.
We can definitely recommend Loft Marlene.
