About this listing
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 (there is a second guest room) have a private bathroom (see photo).
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
The room / apartment is located in the rear house / garden house on the 3rd floor (no elevator).
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...
Gabriela's room was totally perfect !
First of all Gabriela was very helpful she explained us very well how to go in her house, also she had a lot of documentations of all we could do in Berlin ! Really practical !
Spacious and clean. There are all that we could need (coffee, the, fridge, microwave ! The flat is perfectly located in Kreuzberg the best for moving is to take the bus at 1 min ! There are a lot places to eat, to drink and shop !
We love Berlin !
Gabriele is nice host. She is kind and polite. The room is clean and comfortable. The location is good to access .Thank you for everything.
Gabriele's apartment is located in an amazing funky, full of cafes and restaurants neighbourhood. The location of apartment is absolutely perfect,close to U-bahn station.
The room we were staying was very spacious, clean and had the most comfortable bed! It was very quiet and cosy; we had everything we needed.
Gabriele is a great host: she was always in touch with us before and during our stay. She is very attentive to her guests. She as well has 2 bikes you can rent. We did that and had an amazing time exploring Berlin by bikes. It is very safe to cycle and super easy to navigate.
All in all I would highly recommend Gabriele's place to stay.
Gabriele place is a big flat seperated in 2 :her flat and desk and 2 rooms. The rooms are Nice, clean, big, with all you need and lots of flowers. The bathroom is old but clean and big. The flat is very quiet; the neighbourhood is popular but safe.
Hat alles prima geklappt. Die Abstimmung im Vorfeld war top, Begrüßung hat sehr gut geklappt und das Zimmer selbst, war groß und sehr schön eingerichtet. Es liegt ruhig im Hinterhof mit einem großen Kastanienbaum davor. Was das Ganze sehr entspannt gemacht hat. Ausgestattet ist das Zimmer mit Kühlschrank, Wasserkocher, Kaffeemaschine und Toaster. Geschirr ist ausreichend vorhanden, sogar Vorratsdosen, um sich mal was mitzunehmen, waren da. Kreuzberg kann man mögen, muss man nicht ;-) das hat jedoch nichts mit der Unterkunft selbst zu tun. Die ist empfehlenswert.
Gabriele's place is situated in a great area. It's the perfect spot to explore this wonderful city! We rented the bikes from Gabriele and that is the best way to get around. The room is nice, clean and spacious. Gabriele seems really nice but we have hardly seen her or spoken to her. She is obviously in it for the business renting two rooms from her appartement. There's nothing wrong with that, it's all very well organized, but for us not the reason why we rent via airbnb.
