The district Kreuzberg
Kreuzberg is the smallest district and belongs to Berlin's inner city. Unlike most other districts, Kreuzberg did not develop out of a rural village but was formed in 1920 as part of a major administrative reform out of the southern Friedrichstadt, Tempelhofer Vorstadt and Luisenstadt districts. It was named after the highest peak in the area, the Kreuzberg Mountain, which in turn took its name from the monument to the Freedom War (1813-15), topped with an Iron Cross, erected there by Karl-Friedrich Schinkel.
During the Second World War large sections of the district were destroyed, such as parts of the government quarter and the Ritterstrasse commercial area. The working class sections between the Spree River and the Landwehr Canal remained almost completely undamaged.
The district is located between Berlin's old city and the recreational areas to the east (Treptower Park).

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.

Rene was very accommodating to help us. The beds are ok and the rooms are spacious. The only remark I want to make is that the furniture on the pictures does not reflect the actual furniture in the apartment. Maybe a good idea for Rene to update the pictures, the current furniture is much more dated and different than what you see on the pictures.
The apparment was very good. The situation & public transport good. Sufficiently for 7 people and warm for winter weather
René ist super hilfsbereit und entgegenkommend. Die Wohnung ist genau wie auf den Bildern. Ausreichend Platz für alle 8 Personen.
Lage könnte nicht besser sein!
We had a very pleasant time at René's apartment. It is spacious and comfortable and had everything we needed (apart from a bottle opener!). It was freezing cold outside but inside it was nice and warm.
The area in Kreuzberg is nice and quiet and within easy reach of bars and places to eat.
René himself was a great host. He met us promptly when we arrived in Berlin, showed us around his apartment and gave us the keys.
I would definitely recommend staying here.
vielen dank rené,
es hat alles wunderbar geklappt
ich kann das apartement nur weiterempfehlen
Rene was very welcome and friendly! The appartment was very comfortable and we had a great time! We recommend this! :D
René was very accommodating, easy to contact, and quick to respond to any problem that arose with the flat (fuse blew in kitchen one morning- fixed by midday). The location was good- easy enough to walk 10-15 mins to various train stations, and to the East-side Gallery. There is also a super convenient bus 2 mins walk away (M29, from memory), that takes you by the Jewish Museum, and various other places). The wifi was a little temperamental, and the flat was maybe just missing an oven tray (cooking pizzas required some serious improvising)- but otherwise, I have no complaints! Great apartment, fun decor, heaps of living space, large beds, 2 key sets, clean, heating, well-kept, close enough to a Lidl and Aldi, and many small bars and cafés in all directions. It was our first experience of airbnb, and it has set the bar for the next time!
