Quite and sunny apartment, freshly renovated, (45 sqm) located at the raised ground floor in a building from the beginning of the century. Mittenwalde Strasse it self is a quiet side street, with old buildings in a Wilhelminian style typical of Berlin.
The apartment is furnished and decorated with taste and plenty of nice details, fitted with parquet flooring using genuine wood. Branded products have been used exclusively for the sanitary items and fittings.
The living room is funrnished with a double bed, sofa, chest of drawers, table and 2 chairs and television. The kitchen is furnished with all things that are necessary for cooking and eating, fridge / freezer, gas stove with 4 plates and oven.
GneisenaustrasseU-Bahn is just 50 m from the property, and numerous localbusroutes link the property to PotsdamerPlatz, Kurfurstendamm and Alexanderplatz.
The beautiful Viktoriapark with waterfall and Schinkel Memorial, offering fantastic views of Berlin, is just 2 minutes away by foot. The popular Bergmannstrasse with many attractive cafes, shops and restaurants and the Chamisso quarter with decorative stucco buildings are also nearby on foot. Potsdamer Platz (1 km)and Tiergarten are only about 1.5 km away and Kurfuerstendamm (KaDeWe) about 2 km.
Another 2 minute walk in a different direction takes you to the top of the Kreuzberg in Viktoria Park, the highest geographical elevation of Berlin with the famous liberty monument (Freiheitsdenkmal) by architect Friedrich Schinkel. This vantage point affords a most magnificent 360 degree view overlooking the entire city. It is also the spot that gives Kreuzberg its name.
Just few rules:
1) Respect the neighbors. Since you are living in a building with normal flats and people who are permanently living here you must respect the neighbors. You are NOT ALLOWED to listen loud music/tv or to do party inside the flat. Especially before 8 am and after 9pm you must avoid any noise that can be disturb other people.
2) Use of Internet. You are not allowed to download any program or file that is not legal. Police's german downloading rules are quite strictly and if something illegal has been downloaded, they can catch you and let pay fees (around 2000 €).
3) Smoking in the flat is not allowed.
Amazing modern apartment, felt really comfortable and had everything you needed in there including a dishwasher and a washing machine which was a nice touch! It's in a great location as well and it's a 2 minute walk from the train which is great!
Didn't get to meet Mario but the man and woman who met me were lovely and helpful.
Would recommend it and stay there again!!
Great place in a fantastic neighborhood, at a very reasonable cost. It was easy enough to sync up with Mario and staff to gain entry, and there was zero hassle. The wifi was very weak, which was a source of some frustration. There was no bath soap and the towels were not great. None of this offsets the fact that it's a great space, great location, at a great rate.
Great flat, good location right next to the metro! We arrived late so Mario's friend met us with the key. Beautifully modern and clean, everything we needed, although couldnt work the TV! Lovely area, we had a great time.
Nette, unkomplizierte Wohnungsübergabe, sehr ordentlich und modern. Sehr schön und ruhig gelegen.
Overall a good experience but that was partly due to having other family members staying in the building, having only one key was a challenge.
The apartment is well located in Kreuzberg, in a quite zone. We didn't met Mario but a friend of him were waiting for us even if we arrived late at night.
The apartment is good for two people but the suppletory bed for the third guest is not very much comfortable.
The wifi doesn't work very well and we had problems for connecting.
Taking this in mind, I would recommend the apartment, as it is exactly as the pictures.
