Our stay was fantastic! Everything went perfectly and we had a great time in Berlin at Trudys apartment.
We stayed at Trudy's apartment for 6 nights and would have loved to stay longer. The apartment is immaculate, beautifully decorated, flooded with light, and has every amenity you need for a very comfortable stay - the bed and linens were a dream. Also, it is in a perfect spot for everything we wanted to do in Berlin. Check-in and out were smooth and precisely on time. Thanks, Trudy, for a perfect airbnb experience!
Trudy very kindly sent us directions to the apartment from both the airport and train station, and told us exactly what to do during the key hand over which meant it all went very smoothly (Bridget the housekeeper who met us at the apartment was also very friendly and helpful). The apartment itself was presented exactly as it seems in the photos - very clean, bright and spacious, with a really nice courtyard to sit in outside. One of favourite parts of the apartment was probably the neighbourhood - we tried some great restaurants a short walk away and loved being able to walk to Kreuzberg. Being so close to the U-bahn station also meant we could easily get around and know we'd always be able to get back easily after we went out in the evenings.
The kitchen was very clean and stylish with a good working oven and great breakfast bar to sit at, although was sometimes hard to cook in as it lacked some proper cooking utensils (such as wooden spoons, spatulas, mixing bowls, grater, sieve etc).
But overall we had a really great time and would definitely stay in one of Trudy's apartments again!
Thanks Jessica for your detailed review. It was my pleasure to have you in my house :)
The flat has all those kitchen utensils that you where missing in the cupboards under the breakfast bar. So sorry that you didn't discover them!
To future guests who may be reading this PLEASE send me a quick message if you are missing anything in the apartment.... I am always happy to help.
We had a great stay from beginning to end. The rendezvous with housekeeper went well and we found we had all we needed in the apartment. It was great to have good Wi~Fi which is a must. A Toaster and a fan are not standard but appreciated particularly with the heatwave we experienced. The apartment was well thought out the bed comfortable and having shampoos and the like were a nice touch. The apartment is well situated close to the U Bahn & shops/Restaurants. I would highly recommend it as a good place to stay
The apt is beautiful, sunny and fully equipped! Trudy was very clear with instructions and the person that handled the keys was very helpful and kind. Location is excellent! Totally recommend! Thanks for having us trudy!
The apartment is exactly as pictures, it's very spacious and beautifully decorated. It's close to the U Bahn as well as great restaurants and bars, I'd suggest Bruch. Check in and out was easy. The apartment has everything you will need. A wonderful place to call home while staying in Berlin.
Great stay, once again! Apartment was beautifully presented, beds were deliciously comfortable and Trudy's staff were a delight to work with. Thank you!

About the Host, Trudy
I am an Australian Berliner! I have been living in Berlin for over 10 years + having studied Architecture in Perth W.A took to the great apartments Berlin has to offer.
I have great people working for me, I have a 'thing' about good beds so if you want a good comfy bed on your travels I have only great ones!
I have a collection of apartments spread around the city and hence have people to help me have everything run smoothly. I don't live in the apartments myself. I have renovated them all thou and they are my personal property.
My apartments are of a hotel style with empty wardrobes etc. and no cosmetic collections filling the bathrooms. We have white hotel linen and towels freshly delivered and professional cleaning :)
