The apartment is located in one of the more quiet neighborhoods for the Prenzlauer Berg, but you can get everywhere quickly without having to come back to a lot of hustle and bustle. Grocery stores and fast food places (great Döner) are just around the corner. A nice Bavarian restaurant is also just down the street.

The apartment looks exactly the same as in the pictures. It's bright, spacious and clean. It's really quiet, with only some sound of the S-bahn running by when you opened up the windows.
Alan welcomed me and showed me everything. There's a booklet in the apartment with tips for the neighborhood.
I've in Berlin apartment that has more central locations, but you can easily walk down to the part of Prenzlauer Berg with all the restaurants and the tram/S-bahn are just around the corner (S-bahn is at the ring line so you will probably need to change to get where you want to go).
Die Wohnung gefällt uns sehr, die Groß ist grade richtig für zwei Person. Die ist auch ganz sauber. Und in der Näher gibt es ALDI und einen anderen toller Supermackt. Außerdem kann man günstig S Bahn oder Str Bahn finden. Der Vermieter und die Vermieterin sind sehr nett und freudlich, sie hilft uns viel, damit
Wir in Berlin gut reisen können. Nächst Mal würde ich auch hier wohnen! :)
Great place! Allen was a doll, gave us great advice. The apartment was very clean and perfect for what we needed. Location was great right next to the tram and the super market. Would definitely stay again.
The studio was exactly as described in a rally nice cosy area. The supermarket was a few minute walk and public transport easily accessed. It was lovely to have the garden to sit in also. The hosts were so Lovely! After leaving my passport Alan waited and returned it to me
We enjoyed staying at these aparts. Everything is looking just like as on photos, kitchen is equipped with everything that you may need. I was living there with two my friends and I believe this place will also be comfortable for 4 persons.
Communication with Alan was excellent, he provided all necessary info about aparts and neighborhood including loooong and thoroughly categorized list of places to visit around.
Location is very good, tram and S-bahn stop is just 2 min walking and Alexanderplatz is just by 15 mins on tram.
If you go to Berlin by car you will definitely like the fact that you don't need to obtain a sticker on car for green center zone of Berlin if you stay here - aparts are situated just below this zone. But they are really close to city center! Parking is for free, but keep in mind that it is situated on street so it's overwhelmed with cars, it maybe not easy to find a freespace (but we managed to do it after driving around for 10 mins - not so bad :) )
I definitely recommend staying here.
we had a late check in, but alan came and explain everything to us, gave us all the tolls we needed for us to be able to get along in berlin, 20 min walk from the apt to main areas, grocery right near by, clean apt, was perfect!
Alan met us for the check-in and everything was very flexible eventhought we booked really really spontaneous (the night before)..
Everything was smooth and Alan gave us loads of infortmation!
The apartement was as described, clean and very close to public transports! Prenzlberg itself is very nice too for just roaming around and exploring.
Supermarkets are also very close!
Checkout was very easy and flexible too!
We had a great time and would love to come back soon!
