My just renovated 62 sq.m. apartment is located on the third floor in an old building in a silent and green courtyard a few steps from the beautiful Landwehrkanal at the border between Nord Neukölln and Berlin-Kreuzberg.
The apartment has high ceilings, wooden floor, fully equipped kitchen with gas stove, electric oven, dishwasher, boiler, toaster, coffe machine, moka machine, ironing board and iron bathroom with shower, a 140/200 double bed and a cozy 140/200 bed-sofa (extra single bed on demand).
Free Wifi, TV with DVD player, radio. Fresh towels and fresh bed sheets are included. On demand computer, baby cot and bikes (6€ per day).
Final cleaning is 30€.We can offer you a washing service, €7 per machine (iron is also in the flat) and extra cleaning during you stay for, 10€ per hour.
In the apartment you'll find several information about Berlin, maps and guides and if there is anything missing, just let me know and I will try my best to take care of it. I live in the same building.
Public parking is available just in from of the building.
The apartment is located in the trendy scene rising at the border of Kreuzberg and Nord Neukölln (known as Kreuzkölln) in the middle of the multicultural Berlin scene. Few meter away from the charming Landwehrkanal. “Kreuzköln” is now really booming, with bars, cafes, galleries and restaurants opening almost every week.
The attractive Turkish takes place every Tuesday and Friday along the Canal where you can buy fresh vegetables, fish, meat or eating a delicious kebab watching one of the canal-side live jam sessions.
Three parks are within walking distance (including the former Historical Airport Berlin Tempelhof). You will find all the public transportation that you need in order to get through Berlin. In 2 minutes walk you can reach the metro station U8, U7 and Bus M29 (which is quite special because it passes by the Jewish Museum, Checkpoint Charlie, the Martin Gropius Bau, Potsdamer Platz, the New National Gallery and the KuDamm).
There are many super markets in the area (Edeka, Lidl, Aldi, Karstadt in Hermanplatz (10 min away) a Bio LPG, many kiosks open all night long and many bakeries (one in the building!) cafes and a variety of international restaurants, for each taste and every budget.
Within walking distance from the apartment there are also design shops, vintage stores, book shops, galleries and boutiques.
The atmosphere in the streets of the multicultural neighborhood is very cozy, friendly and alive, much more real and beautiful of other parts of the city. Here you can experience the real Berlin nightlife in bars and clubs, all in within walking distance: Weserstraße, Hobrechtstrasse, Ohlauerstrasse, Reichenbergerstrasse and Kottbussertor. And during the summer Club Der Visionäre and Badeschiff are really close.
There are lots of cinemas in the area that screen film in orginal language (many even open-air).
I'm sure you'll love it!
Other Things to Note
Information for visitors on Berlin’s hotel occupancy tax
What is being taxed?
As of 1 January 2014, the federal state of Berlin will collect a hotel occupancy tax on all overnight stays in hotels in Berlin. A “hotel” includes any type of short-term, paid accommodation, and the tax is due whether or not the hotel guest actually spends the night in the room.
If a room is reserved, but the guest cancels the reservation before arrival, the occupancy tax is not charged.
Who is liable for the tax?
The hotel is responsible for collecting the tax and passing it on to the federal state of Berlin.
How much is the tax?
The occupancy tax is 5% of the price of the hotel room (without extras, such as meals, items from the minibar, the use of hotel services and facilities not included in the room price, etc.).

THE BERLIN TAX IS THE 5% OF THE PRICE YOU PAID WITHOUT THE AIRBNB COMMISSION AND THE FINAL CLEANING. IF YOU ARE COMING TO BERLIN FOR WORKING REASON OR STAYING IN BERLIN FOR MORE THEN 3 WEEKS DON'T HAVE TO PAY IT.
We had an excellent stay at Karla's apartment. The studio is exactly as on the pictures. Location is perfect. Near to several public transport hubs and a cozy neighborhood. Would definitely recommend it. Karla is a very nice host and her bar is very close, where you can store your luggage when you checkout early.
Carla is an amazing host !
Very thoughtful and her appartment is very cosy. I would recommend to anyone staying in Berlin !
The location is perfect and very lively. Many Nice restaurants in the neighborhood.
Thank You again Carla!
Carla's place was very nice in a great neighbourhood. We didn't end up meeting Carla but she was very quick to respond and really attentive. Overall lovely place to stay!
Un petit SMS pour confirmer notre heure d'arrivée à l'appartement et Carla nous attendait. Nous avons pu déposer nos bagages dés la fin de matinée et les reprendre au départ en fin d'après midi, ce qui est très sympa. L'appartement correspond à la description et dans un environnement calme. Le quartier est très sympa, avec autour des bons restaurants, et des bars notamment sur Weichselstrasse (à 400 mètres). Proximité du métro et à 5 stations d'Alexanderplatz.
Très bon séjour.
'Excellent' would be one word to describe our experience in Berlin. From the moment we arrived there was absolutely no hassles with checking in, getting shown around the apartment and settling in. The map provided us with great locations for anything we needed, the Internet was great and the apartment is kept in perfect condition. We will be back again. Thank you Carla!
Great place to stay! Carla was an extremely responsive and friendly host and she made us feel truly welcome.
Her recommendations for restaurants were very thoughtful, we had such unforgettable brunches and dinners in nearby restaurants. Maybachufer is an amazing neighborhood, really our favorite in Berlin!
I came late in the day after a different AirBnB place had cancelled. Carla responded immediately and accommodated me on short notice. Thank you!
Overall, the place was basic and satisfactory. I will note that there was only one thin blanket on the bed in the middle of winter. The place gets cold, and it would be nice if several thick blankets were always around on reserve. (Also, european-style blankets that come in two halves, one for each side of the bed are really annoying-- does anyone else feel that way?)
It would have also been nice to have coffee fixings and some cream and sugar around for the morning.
Otherwise it's a super place and the management is incredible responsive. When I mentioned the above things, they were addressed immediately the next day.

I live in Berlin but I grew up in Rome where I got my graduation in Law. I'm documentary filmmaker and I rent my apartments in the Historical Centre of Rome and in Kreuzberg and Neukölln in Berlin.
