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...
