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.
The flat is very nice and the description of it is very accurate.
Is big and spacious and the mirrors make it feel even bigger and luminous. The house is fully equipped in case you feel like cooking, which is very good.
However, the internet was really spotty. Sometimes the signal dropped and were certain parts of the house we couldn't get connection. This is an issue if you don't know the city well and you wish to plan well the next day/s.
The lights of the apartment were not enough for the area of the flat and some bulbs were not working.
Also one of the blinds was broken so we couldn't flip the shutters properly.
The neighbourhood is nice and quiet so there's nothing going on, really - Unless you walk towards Neukölln a bit East or a bit north to the center of Kreuzberg. The U-Bahn Station is really close which is very convenient and can take you to this places or the city center in no time.
What a Beautiful appartment! Modern clean and THE perfect location. Kreuzberg and Neukolln are THE upcoming neighbourhoods with more bares en restaurants than you can visit in a weekend! Perfect appartment for a weekend in this amazing city!
This apartment is brilliant and precisely what we were looking for. It is exactly as shown in the pictures and all extra amenities such as a hairdryer/iron/towels were also all provided. We didn't actually meet Mario but a lovely lady met us outside the apartment at the time we had agreed with Mario, and she had the keys and all info we required. Unfortunately, the apartment hadn't yet been cleaned but the lady who let us in started cleaning straight away and we got to wander around the nice neighborhood for 1h30m. The apartment was always a lovely temperature and the bed was extremely comfortable. One of the blinds was broken when we arrived but we managed to fix it and some of the main lights were blown. This meant the apartment was quite dark during the evenings, which was a bit of a pain when getting reading to go out for dinner, but I guess this could easily be fixed with some new lights. Overall, this is a fantastic apartment, located on a safe street and only 2 mins walk from the nearest U-bahn station. It is also only a 10 min walk to the best kebabs in Berlin at Mustafa's..you must go! We would happily stay here again.
My stay was great. I was staying alone and needed my privacy which was no issue. The place was great. Lots of amenities were provided. Mario was a great host thank you Mario.
Appartement agréable dans un immeuble propre et rue calme mais quelques points négatifs. Le propriétaire a oublié le rendez-vous pour le check in. Nous ne l'avons pas croisé donc il n'y a pas d'accueil. Le ménage n'était pas fait à l'arrivée et il a été fait à la va vite à notre retour (projections douteuses sur la vitre à côté du lit..!). Le canapé-lit est cassé ce qui nous a valu des maux de dos et torticolis! Quelques point à perfectionner donc! Berlin n'en reste pas moins une destination top!
Die Wohnung war super und auch die Lage ist toll! Mario hat mir stets schnell auf meine Fragen geantwortet und Max war auch immer sehr hilfsbereit. Danke für die tollen 11 Tage in eurem schönen Appartement!
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!!
