This apartment suits independent travellers.
A private front room (25m²) in a typical Berlin Altbau, bright with sunlight. It's a lovely, recently-renovated apartment with floorboards, great water pressure, fast internet and two relaxed housemates. The room has double glazing so it's very quiet.
Great transport connections (U-Bahn, S-Bahn and bus) get you quickly to all of Berlin's attractions. The apartment is in a quiet kiez near the River Spree and Hauptbahnhof, 20 minutes walk South to the Siegessäule and Tiergarten and 20 minutes walk North-West to lake swimming and picnics at Plötzensee. Nearby Turkish markets provide cheap groceries and the area is starting to boom with cafes, ateliers and art galleries.
The room has a queen sized bed, a desk and chair, bookshelf and a clothing rail. Bed linen and towels are provided.
I have compiled a folder of Berlin things to see and do that even the frequent Berlin traveller will find interesting. I have a great selection of CDs from Berlin-based musicians to listen to. I also have a bicycle you can use.
Bathroom, Kitchen, Toilet and your bedroom.
Interaction with Guests
I'll be around during your stay to help you out.
There's a couple of great bars and coffee shops in the Kiez, a supermarket on the corner, a bakery across the street and all the shops you'll need on Turmstraße.
We're by the 123 (to Hauptbahnhof) and M27 (connecting U6, U8 and U9) busses (Bus stop: Stendaler Str.). We're also near the U9 (Birkenstraße) and Ringbahn (Westhafen) train lines.
Other Things to Note
The owners of the house have erected scaffolding in the courtyard to renovate the facade. It's possible that the workmen will start at 08:00 Monday-Friday. If you're getting up early to see the sights, this won't be a problem. If you were hoping to sleep late each morning and you don't like construction noise, perhaps this room isn't for you.
Please, no smoking indoors, but it's OK to smoke on the balcony. Please keep the room clean and help keep the shared areas clean. If you use household items (toilet paper, cleaning products etc), please replace them. Please don't bring other guests home without checking with us.
