Located right in Kreuzberg and two minutes from the international, multi-cultural and lively famous Oranienstrasse, the room is very quiet, at the end of a large apartment with a nice view over typical Berlin backyards.
The guest room is 25-m2 in size and is located on a 150-m2 large apartment opposite the bathroom. It is newly renovated (June 2013), has a new 1.60 m wide bed with new mattress, wardrobe, TV, sofa and a dining table with chairs. It is also equipped with a microwave, a coffee maker, kettle, crockery, coffee, tea, and a small refrigerator, so that you prepare your own meals/breakfast if you want.
The flat (where the rental room is located) is in a very peaceful neighbourhood, and in the morning guests might even be awakened by a real cock crowing since there is a farm very nearby.
Although this is an idyllic setting, the accommodation is actually very close to the typical Berlin district of Kreuzberg, which is home to the famous street “Oranienstraße” with its numerous bars, restaurants, small terraces and international cuisine. In just a short stroll visitors can reach the famous bars „Sage-Club“, „Kater Holzig“, "SO36", "Berghain" and more.
Smoking is allowed. Arrival and departure is flexible, if the room is not booked same day. Then: Check out please at 11 a.m., arrival not before 12 a.m.
Guests have their own bathroom (see pictures).
Interaction with Guests
I've been living here for 30 years and I'm happy to help, just ask.Hey, it's Kreuzberg :)
Hey, it's Kreuzberg :)
The underground station Kottbusser Tor and the stop of the Metro Bus #29 are five minutes walking distance By public transport you are in a few minutes either at Alexanderplatz, former Checkpoint Charlie and it's museum, Jewish Museum, to the Hackescher Markt, Unter den Linden, the Ku-Damm and the Memorial Church, Potsdamer Platz and or the Museum Island. For guests arriving by car there is easy parking right outside in front of the house.
And for the brave of you: I also have two new bike to rent (8€ p. day/bike with quantity discount and incl. a Berlin biking map) :)
Other Things to Note
Since 1.1.2014 Berlin tourists have to pay the city tax, the fee is now included in the price.
First Rule: Have Fun!
Beside that: Please don't bring other people in my house, especially not over night! And please turn off any file-sharing software and do not stream movies on your internet connection, it's very expensive in Germany and I have to charge you...
Es war wirklich toll! Ich habe mich sehr sehr wohl gefühlt. Alles war genau wie beschrieben und Gabriele war unglaublich nett und zuvorkommend! Immer wieder!
My stay with Gabriele in Berlin could not have been better! She met me at the beautiful apartment upon my arrival and showed me around the place while also providing some very helpful maps and suggestions about the neighborhood and exploring Berlin. The apartment is perfect: the room is clean and spacious, with a giant bathroom. It is located in such a cool diverse neighborhood, and still so close to all of the major sights. I highly recommend renting one of her available bikes while there, I found it to be the best way to explore Berlin! I found so many places on accident while cruising around the city. At night, the neighborhood is perfect for walking around and grabbing a drink or bite to eat. Not to mention, plenty of amazing cafes and bakeries for breakfast or any time of the day. Gabriele is friendly and welcoming and wants to ensure that you have a great Berljn experience. I hope to have the opportunity to stay at her place again in the near future.
Really nice venue in the heart of Kreusberg: a really nice area.
Thank you Gabriele to let us stay in your lovely place !
We hope to come back soon
We had a good time at Gabriele's place. The room was nice and clean, and equipped with a small refrigerator, water boiler, coffee, tee and so on.
Gabriele is really nice and helpful, but at the same time she respected our privacy by welcoming as if we were flatmates.
The room is perfectly located in Kreuzberg, but also quite since the windows is located on an internal garden.
Excellent pick for whoever wants to have a good time in Berlin and stay in a simple, nice and easy-going place!
We had a really great time at Gabriele's place. The room is very spacious and bright; the bed is very comftable and the bath room is huge. The appartment is in a really great area of kreuzberg. Also, Gabriele is a very friendly, open-minded host which can give you valuable advice about the neighbourhood and Berlin. We would definitely stay again at Gabriele's place!
I had a great weekend at Gabriele's place in Kreuzberg. The room was spacious and quiet, and the neighborhood was vibrant and fascinating. Unfortunately, I had to bring work with me, but the combination of a cozy room and interesting escape make for the ideal place to write my thesis. I recommend the neighborhood and Gabriele to anyone looking to visit Berlin, especially those interested in an artistic scene.
Bei Gabriele habe ich mich sehr wohlgefühlt. Das Zimmer war wie beschrieben sehr ruhig, hell und gemütlich. Danke!
