About this listing
Charming refurbished apartment with original wood floor just steps to the subway stop. FREE WIFI.
Welcome to our two room Berlin style apartment! The apartment is in the heart of Berlin: in the fascinating district Wedding/Mitte. The neighborhood reminds you of the famous pulsing Kreuzberg within the 80ies. Turkish stores, shisha bars and movie theater as well as modern art galeries and innovative off theaters are shaping the atmosphere of this district. Students, artists, old- and new Berliners are creating that dynamic and unique berlin vibe.
Your daily choice of meal gets to a fascinating experience on its own. Within that neighborhood you have the offer of every kind of restaurant (from vegan to Ethiopian food) at very affordable prices. Supermarkets and so called Spätis (small shops for grocery and things for everyday life usually open 24/7) are also all over nearby.
Trainline 6 is a five minute walk away. The subway brings you directly within 10 min. to the historical center of Berlin (Friedrichstr.). Busses are also stopping in front of the apartment. They will take you to Hauptbahnhof within 5 minutes or to Tegel airport within 15 minutes.
The apartment is a classical Berlin apartment with nice wooden floors and high ceilings. All rooms can be accessed separately from the hallway. Because of the big windows you will have a good light in all rooms. All windows open up to a courtyard making the apartment a quiet yet central place to stay.
The bedroom offers two king size beds. There is also a big closet in that room with enough space for eight people.
The living room has two double sleeping couches, a flat screen TV, and a stereo system. The kitchen is fully equipped allowing for good cooking. It also has a table and can seat up to 8 people.
The bathroom is equipped with a bathtub and window. Toilet paper, fresh towels and bedding of excellent quality are included in the price.
We are friendly hosts and we always try to make your stay as comfortable as possible. If you have any questions feel free to ask. During your stay we will always be reachable for your belongings.

It was really nice to stay at Ben's apartment. With its convenient neighborhood and transportation system, we had really great time there.
Ben was nice and always answer my message within an hour, which makes me feel reliable.
Very nice apartment which could be conveniently accessed form the city centre and many other locations. Good size with lots of space and light and with a well furbished kitchen. Also has a pretty good kebab shop around the corner!
Ben's apartment is way beyond our expectation! It's huge, clean, and everything you need is inside=], we have spare wardrobe, and the kitchen is so big and have anything you want, we cooked every night. It was a wonderful experience that we stay in Ben's apartment. Moreover, the location is superb, just 2 mins walk to the u bahn, and there is 2 cheap supermarket(lidl, netto) , 2 high quality supermarket(kaiser's, and biocampany), and 2 big turkish markt, and even cinema and real(the big store ) ! I wish I can stay in there again in the near future!
The apartment is big and the layout is pretty nice. The listing is exactly like the photos. It was easy for us to get around from the apartment. Almost everything was provided. The floor was really squeaky. We had hot water problem three weeks out of the four weeks staying there. At first they sent people to fix it within an hour. But the machine broke again and it took a long time until the second fix. A quick tip, when the red light lights up on the machine for malfunction, that light is also a button to pressed to let the machine to restart.
Sehr schöne geräumige Unterkunft für unsere 3 tägige Berlin Reise. Jederzeit gerne wieder.
Bens communication was very good. He was able to accommodate us very last minute and we had no problems with checkin. The apartment is quite large and everything worked well. The beds are comfortable, there was plenty of hot water and the wifi was good.
The location felt a bit peripheral, however the metro is just around the corner and works well.
This apartment worked fine for our needs.
Wir haben eine sehr schöne Woche in Berlin gehabt.
Positiv: Große Wohnung in sehr verkehrsgünstiger Lage. Hinten raus ermöglicht es ruhig zu schlafen (leider machten Leute im Nachbarhaus am Wochenende eine sehr laute Party bis 4 Uhr früh). Zwei super Hausbrauereien direkt in der Nähe (Vagabund und Eschenbräu).
Negativ: mit der Sauberkeit in der Wohnung war es nicht sehr gut bestellt. Alte, gebrauchte Pflaster und Taschentücher lagen herum, in einem Kessel fanden sich alte, eingetrocknete Essensreste, viele Teller und Geschirr waren schmutzig, die Lampen und die Bretter in den Schränken waren verstaubt. Einige Müslischalen lagen schmutzig unter der Spüle in einem Mülleimer. Das haben wir Ben mitgeteilt. Nach zwei Tagen telefonisch Kontakt gehabt. Eine Reinigungskraft wurde am nächsten Tag geschickt.
