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. You can use my bicycles, big-screen TV with Netflix subscription, Espresso machine, etc.
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 bicycles 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)
Martins Wohnung ist ein Traum, hell und freundlich gestaltet, mitten im quirligen Zentrum von Berlin. Da Martin selbst nicht da sein könnte, hat mich eine sehr nette Freundin empfangen und mir alles gezeigt. Mein Mann und ich haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
Loved this apartment and the location too. Unfortunately we never got to meet Martin and get any pearls of wisdom from him regarding the locale, which too be honest was the main reason we wanted to share with someone in Berlin. He was very communicative over email while he was away though but it's not quite the same as face to face. On the upside however, we got a sweet pad all to ourselves, which was also cool so I can't complain about that. Would definitely recommend.
We have just spent 3 days at Martin's place and had a wonderful time. The location is so central, we walked everywhere! The apartment itself is beautiful with light flooded rooms and is impeccably clean. It's the perfect place to stay if you're looking to explore Berlin - we especially enjoyed walking through nearby Prenzlauer Berg and enjoying its many cafes, bars and restaurants. The apartment is exactly as advertised and Martin was incredibly helpful and communicative. Thanks again for letting stay - we hope to come back soon!
Martin was a wonderful host - informative, helpful in getting to his apartment and navigating Berlin, easy going and flexible. He is so generous, thoughtful, and super interesting as well. His apartment is gorgeous and has everything you might need, and is very convenient to the museums, great food, and fun bars, as well as the so way. But we biked the entire time, because Martin kindly let us use his bikes! I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
My bus was a bit delayed so I arrived half hour later than estimated time, Martin was waiting for me. He showed me the apartment and we had a small chat, which I felt so welcomed and like talking with an old friend. The apartment is easy to find and very central located. The closed U8 station is just one block away and if you like walking a bit in the city, it's just 20mins by walking to Alexander Platz for instance. And the apartment is also really nice, I would definitely recommend it and if possible I will still choose Martin's place for my next trip to Berlin.
Martin is such a great host that made our living experience so wonderful! He provided us comprehensive traffic suggestion so that we would not have trouble in the traffic. Also he left me and my boyfriend plenty of privacy and we really feel comfortable living in his lovely house:) The neighbourhood is safe, clean and quiet. It's very convenient to walk around the city centre and it only takes three minutes to walk to the nearst tube station. The house is just the same as the pictures show. I would definitedly recommend it to all people who seek for perfect living experience as we did:)
