Quite and sunny apartment, freshly renovated, (35 sqm) located at the second floor in a building from the beginning of the century. Mittenwalde Strasse it self is a quiet side street, with old buildings in a Wilhelminian style typical of Berlin.
The apartment is furnished and decorated with taste and plenty of nice details, fitted with parquet flooring using genuine wood; there is a modern fitted kitchen sand balcony. Branded products have been used exclusively for the sanitary items and fittings.
The living room is funrnished with a double bed, sofa, chest of drawers, table and 2 chairs and television. The kitchen is furnished with all things that are necessary for cooking and eating, fridge / freezer, gas stove with 4 plates and oven.
GneisenaustrasseU-Bahn is just 50 m from the property, and numerous localbusroutes link the property to PotsdamerPlatz, Kurfurstendamm and Alexanderplatz.
The beautiful Viktoriapark with waterfall and Schinkel Memorial, offering fantastic views of Berlin, is just 2 minutes away by foot. The popular Bergmannstrasse with many attractive cafes, shops and restaurants and the Chamisso quarter with decorative stucco buildings are also nearby on foot. Potsdamer Platz (1 km)and Tiergarten are only about 1.5 km away and Kurfuerstendamm (KaDeWe) about 2 km.
Another 2 minute walk in a different direction takes you to the top of the Kreuzberg in Viktoria Park, the highest geographical elevation of Berlin with the famous liberty monument (Freiheitsdenkmal) by architect Friedrich Schinkel. This vantage point affords a most magnificent 360 degree view overlooking the entire city. It is also the spot that gives Kreuzberg its name.
Just few rules:
1) Respect the neighbors. Since you are living in a building with normal flats and people who are permanently living here you must respect the neighbors. You are NOT ALLOWED to listen loud music/tv or to do party inside the flat. Especially before 8 am and after 9pm you must avoid any noise that can be disturb other people.
2) Use of Internet. You are not allowed to download any program or file that is not legal. Police's german downloading rules are quite strictly and if something illegal has been downloaded, they can catch you and let pay fees (around 2000 €).
3) Smoking in the flat is not allowed.
Excellent and clean apartment, exactly as shown in pictures. Very comfortable and convenient with public transport (U7 Gneisenaustr.) 30 seconds away.
Mario is a great host, strongly recommended.
Reibungsloser Ablauf, Mario war immer gut über Email oder Telefon zu erreichen. Die Wohnung war sehr schön uns sauber, wie auf den Fotos / Inserat beschrieben und hatte alles was man für einen kurzen Aufenthalt braucht. Zentral gelegen und nur 2min zum nächsten U-Bhf.
Einiziges Manko, die Jalousien waren kaputt und nicht wieder an den Fenstern angebracht, daher war es sehr hell. Ansonsten Top.
Perfect position, very close to the U-Bahn.
The apartment is nice and clean, like in the pictures.
Mario was very accommodating and there was non problem with the late check out.
Lovely designed flat in a quiet place. Everything you need for a stay. Good connections to other places of town. Internet worked well.
Definitely recommend to stay.
I had no contact with Mario, but with one of his friends or employees.
The appartement was as it seemed in the pictures, although the pictures made it look much bigger than it is.
The neighbourhood is very nice - typical Kreuzberg street. It felt very safe to walk in the street. The building is also very well maintained.
The was an issue with a broken window curtain that was missing. It made the flat too lit in the morning and too transparent to neighbours... Mario said he will take care of it after we asked him too, but didnt.
The were only 2 toilet paper rolls which was annoying and some burned out lights. As renting out flats is obviously his bussiness I would expect better maintenance.
Place was great, clean and had everything you'd need for the stay. Perfect amount of space for a couple or one person. Looks exactly like the photos and is very close to the subway. Mario was helpful and accommodating prior to the stay and allowed us to check out late as our flight was later in the day. Overall a very positive experience.
The location is perfect. The flat is rather cozy. There is everything necessary for staying several days. The flat was clean when we arrived. Max met us. We liked the flat very much.
