Cosy, quirky apartment at the heart of Berlin. Central yet very quiet. Comes fully furnished and equipped with washing machine, fridge, cooker, kettle and toaster. Linen and towels available, the bathroom is fitted with a shower. The double bed (140 width) features a high-quality foam mattress and a very soft down duvet.
As the flat is in one of the oldest buildings (left) in Berlin, there is one flight of very steep stairs, so it is not suitable for people with walking impairment (or with very bulky suitcases :-).
Reduction in price possible for single occupation.
The flat is within walking distance to the Museum Island, Alexanderplatz, and all Prenzlauer Berg or Mitte cafés, boutiques, bars and clubs! Just a few steps away is also Claerchen's Ballhaus, a 1920s ballroom where you can still go for dancing lessons every night!
There is a great street market at Hackescher Markt on Thursdays and Saturdays where you can get great German bread, organic fruit, vegetable and other specialties, as well as clothes and jewellery.
Small dogs welcome.
The nearest U-Bahn stop is called Weinmeisterstasse (U8, 3 mins. walk), the nearest S-Bahn stops are Hackescher Markt (7 mins. walk) or Oranienburger Strasse (10 mins. walk).
Guest access is to entire flat with all its contents (within reason).
I will not be present because I can only rent out while I am away. But I am happy to help with anything beforehand and, if possible, during your stay.
Public transport is just a few steps away, but parking is a problem.
Uta's apartment is excellently placed in a quiet area but with restaurants, bars and the metro within a short walk. The apartment is spacious, well proportioned and Uta was excellent in supporting us with our questions prior to our stay (not only on the apartment, but including tips on what to see & do in Berlin). Some small, brief steep stairs, but worth it! Strongly recommended.
Uta's apartment is really comfortable and in an excellent location! Uta wasn't there to meet us but picking up the keys from nearby was no problem. Uta was also a lifesaver, giving us detailed instructions in how to get from the airport to her place, plus she gave us excellent recommendations of local food and fun places nearby. A great host!!!!
I couldn't have had a more positive experience with Uta. She even left us stuff for breakfast as a nice surprise! Would love to stay at her place again and can highly recommend it.
Uta's place is the perfect location if you ever decide to visit Berlin. It's perfectly located in Berlin Mitte and many major sights are all within walking distance. I felt like home at Uta's place. Nice, cozy, clean and calm location. She was very flexible with check-in and check-out timings. I highly recommend her place. If I ever go to Berlin again, her place will certainly be my bnb again.

Upon walking into this apartment, I immediately had a sense of déjà vu. It was like walking into an old friend's apartment, or even a place I had lived in a different life. My point is that I felt comfortable, at home, and cozy from the instant I arrived. Uta's flat is spacious and warm with lots of charm. It's an old building, so there are lovely wooden floors and double windows and you feel the 'history' of the place. It's clean and tidy and well-equipped. It is directly in the heart of Mitte, right next to the popular Weinmeisterstrasse shopping areas, Hackescher Markt, Alexanderplatz, and anything else you would want. Personally, we stayed home a lot; there is something about this place that is so overwhelmingly cheerful and cozy that on an early winter night, nothing sounds better than cooking dinner and curling up on the sofa with a book. Uta herself wasn't in Berlin, but her communication was always fast, helpful, clear, and friendly. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
