The apartment is located in classical Berlin apartment block from the turn of the century in the south of Prenzlauer Berg and only 10 minutes walk from Alexanderplatz. Also within walking distance are the TV tower, as well as the Dome, Unter den Linden and Brandenburger Tor.
Restaurants, cafes, galleries and little shops create both a day and nightlife atmosphere. It is one of the most popular districts in Berlin and it is one of the prettiest neighborhoods, places of interest include Helmholtzplatz, Kollwitzplatz, Mauerpark and Rykestrasse Synagogue.
The Apartment is located in a quiet front house, on the second floor, it is very light; it has a bedroom with zip and link bed that becomes a double bed or can be two single beds. It has a living room with the same bed options, a kitchen, a hallway and a small closet room, a balcony and a bathroom with a shower and washing machine.
The apartment is very well located. The M2 tram stops just on the corner of Prenzlauer Allee and this is four stops from the Alexanderplatz. The M4 in the Greifswalder Straße will take you directly to the popular Hackescher Markt. The M10 in the Danziger Straße will take you directly to the Oberbaumbrücke, an historical bridge of Berlin in the socialistic period, and further to the neighborhood Kreuzberg.

Hi!, this are just basics to improve your stay
Please take care of the floors. They are wood, a natural element which gives you a really good quality in your stay but also needs some caring back.
Please respect others enviroment by not being noisy, please don´t make a bachelor party in the apartment!
Turn the heating off if you are not home, love the enviroment.

The location was perfect, view over the park really nice, those are the only positives. However the apartment itself was a little shabby and run-down, looks much nicer in the photos. But the biggest NEGATIVE was the communication with the landlords.
Being a business running this apartment I would expect much better service, Juliana and Leland were hard to contact, rarely responded to my emails and never fixed any of the problems unless constantly harassed.
When we checked in they gave us keys and directions, when we arrived we couldn't find the washing machine anywhere because it is located downstairs (which we were not informed), with a separate key which they did not give us until we went back and requested it (even though we booked the apartment for 2 months).
At the same time we asked for the key to the mailbox, after weeks of harassing and unfulfilled promises (and clearing the mailbox by shoving our hand in) we finally received the key in the final week of our stay (our 2 month stay). When we did finally receive the mailbox key it was to a different mailbox that we had to share with another guest, not exactly secure!
In terms of the apartment itself the beds terrible and definitely not meant for couples as they split apart during the night. The apartment was run down and things would break just through normal use (e.g. simply hanging the towel on the towel rack). We told the landlords of these problems and they did not even respond. The apartment was also not clean when we moved in. It appeared clean but at closer inspection was not clean at all, lots of mould in the bathroom and dust everywhere. We had to clean the entire place before unpacking.
I would NOT recommend staying here, despite the great location it is simply not worth the hassle.
We received detailed and very easy to follow instructions for check-in. The apartment was exactly what we expected. We absolutely loved the neighbourhood with all its cafés and restaurants. We would return without hesitation.
The overall experience in the flat was really good. The expectations were all satisfied. What you see in the pictures is real and the description is true. We liked a lot our staying, feeling comfortable in the flat and in the district itself, which is absolutely lovely. Quite, warm, comfortable as it should be a place where you want to spend a relaxing weekend. We would suggest it , definitely good!
The service was very good and Julianna was kind and helpfull. The appartment is cute, cheap and on good location. The main cons are:
1. The beds are seperate, not very comfortable and dont make a very good double bad experience.
2. The curtains are transparent and there is a lot of light in the room early in the morning. If you want to enjoya good sleep, it is a big problem.
We enjoyed the stay, but the sleeping part wasnt very good.
Nice apartment and conveniently located. Juliana & Leland were kind enough to give some tips during our stay and making last minute arrangement to pick up the keys. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Berlin and will consider using the apartment again in the future.
Nice appartment, Nice area, great stay in Berlin. I have to say we were a disappointed to see that actually no ones usually lives in the appartment which is to my mind a bit against what we are looking for when booking via AirBnB i.e. a causy, warm place where you feel really like a proper citizen of the city. This appartment is good if you look for same kind of service as in an Hotel but not the good one if you want to feel like a proper Berliner.
We had a very enjoyable stay in the apartment. Juliana was extremely helpful and prompt in all our dealings with her. I would recommend the apartment to anyone.

I am Juliana . I fell in love with Berlin years ago. I work in Prenzlauer Berg, an amazing neighboorhood in this city. My neighboors got to know me and when they are traveling (via Airbnb!) I take their keys and look forward to meet nice and interesting guests from all over the world.
Whenever I am not around to answer emails or travelling my good friend Leland helps out from time to time. Feel free to ask us anything you'd like about our apartments.
Come home to Berlin!
