About This Listing
Offered by owner - I am not subletting!
Located in the center of the city and on the 5th floor, yet perfectly quiet. Stay in one of Berlin's most vibrant neighborhoods. You get to use a huge space, not just your private room.
This is a new, modern apartment on the top floor (there's a penthouse unit above but it is recessed so you can't see it) with views on Alexanderplatz and other well known icons of Berlin.
The apartment is beautifully furnished to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. No IKEA furniture.
You have use of the entire apartment except for my bedroom.
Interaction with Guests
I like to interact with my guests, cook dinner together or show them the neighborhood. Of, course, you are welcome to have a more private visit.
Right at the border between Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg, you have access to all the great offerings two of the most hippest neighborhoods in Berlin. Visit the Museumsinsel (museum island), Mauerpark, Brandenburger Tor, Tiergarten, Reichstag. Enjoy the many great restaurants, clubs and bars, shop groceries in walking distance or shop for clothes in Berlin's fashion center on Friedrichstrasse around the corner.
Bus stop at the door, subway (U8) and tram (12, M1) one block away, subway U6, S1, S2 5min walk.
You can use my bicycle to get around.
Other Things to Note
Furniture is all real wood, high quality. Mattresses are high quality, exclusively from natural materials and very firm. While this is healthy for your back, the occasional guest found that it took them some time to get used to the firmness of the mattress. If you know you can only sleep on a soft surface, this may not be a good fit.
Please treat the place like you would your own. I keep the apartment very clean and beautiful and I want to keep it that way.
- no smoking inside (balcony ok)
- no pets
- no parties
- please remove your shoes at the entrance because of the wooden floors
- now downloading or uploading of illegal material on the Internet (Germany has very strong anti-piracy enforcement)
Martin was a great host! He has traveled himself, so he knew what kind of struggles we would have. He was very helpful and kind but not pushy. If we needed help, he was very accommodating. If not, he was there just in case. Absolutely a great person! I even walked away with a renewed interest in yoga thanks to Martin.
The accommodations were fantastic. The view was good. The facilities were wonderful. Super clean and loved the decor!
Martin had been very well organised with his directions before I arrived. He welcomed me warmly when I arrived and explained the a management arrangements of the apartment. The apartment itself was very stylish, and situated in Mitte, was very accessible to many of the areas of Berlin that I was interested in. It is about a 15-20 minute walk to such places as Alexanderplatz, Museum Island, Brandenburg Gate and the Memorial to the Wall on Bernbauer Strasse. Mitte is also undergoing its own transformation and has many interesting eating places and businesses. Being able to do some cooking of my own was an added plus in my stay. I can recommend Martin and his apartment most enthusiastically.
I strongly recommend Martin Hunke's room in Berlin. The room is very comfortable with a large bed and with access to an excellent bathroom. The apartment is well decorated, light and airy. It is even nicer than the pictures in the advert show. Martin is a very welcoming and friendly host. The apartment is very central and walking distance from the main museums.
Martin hat uns sehr freundlich empfangen und uns mit reichlich Informationen über Berlin versorgt. Im Vorfeld gab er uns schon hilfreiche Hinweise zur Anfahrt vom Hauptbahnhof, so dass wir das Apartment sehr leicht fanden. Die Wohnung entspricht voll der Beschreibung. Sie ist sehr großzügig, modern, sauber und auch wohnlich. Wir haben uns in der Zeit unseres Aufenthalts wohl gefühlt.
Great confort, smart design, well-equipped appartment, charming and funny Martin guest!! To be highly recommended.
Ich war zwar nur für eine Nacht zu Gast bei Martin, weil die Hotels mal wieder richtig teuer gewesen sind aufgrund der Messezeit - trotz des kurzen Aufenthaltes hab ich mich aber mehr als wohlgefühlt. Perfekte Lage mitten in Berlin, sehr ruhiges Schlafzimmer nach hinten raus. Tolle Wohnung und sehr sauber. Komme gerne wieder !
Martin was very helpful, accommodating and friendly. He recommended a great French restaurant for dinner. We had a late train out after we checked out but Martin let us leave our bags until we needed to catch our train. He has a pretty awesome lifestyle splitting his time between two countries. If I ever find myself in Berlin I would definitely stay with him again.
