About this listing
Hello and welcome to Berlin!
I offer a quiet, cozy room located just off the beautiful Viktoria-Luise-Platz. With its full amenities you can enjoy your stay and explore Berlin.
The room is quiet and looks south out into a green back yard where many rabbits bustle.
It is equipped for up to two people and has everything you need for a visit in Berlin. The modern kitchen and clean bathroom are available at all times.
The apartment (a third floor walk-up) is centrally located just off the most beautiful place in Schöneberg: the "Viktoria-Luise -Platz" . In the summer you can watch the buzz around the big fountain with an ice cream in hand or visit one of the many cafes or restaurants. Because the roads are partially closed to cars, it is very quiet and welcoming.
Only 300m away is the Winterfeldt Square with its numerous restaurants and its famous food market, which is always worth a visit. The "Bar jeder Vernunft" invites you to enjoy good food and often outsolded theater performances. The Motz- and Fugger streets are home to many gay clubs and cafes and the Kurfürstendamm (Kuhdamm) with its hundreds of shops is within walking distance.
Bakers and supermarkets are around the corner. Especially popular is the Winterfeldplatz (only 400m away) with its market and the many cafes .
In addition to fast Wi-Fi, the room has a television and a radio (+ extra radio with adapter for i-phones). Fresh linen and as many towels as are needed are of course available. The apartment has central heating.
In the clean bathroom a hairdryer is available, and, if a guest wants to bathe, there are also various bath products that you are welcome to use.
The kitchen is fully equipped, with tea making facilities, a microwave, a toaster, an electric cooker with ceramic hob, a refrigerator, a dishwasher, a coffee maker, cooking utensils, and much more. Feel free to use whatever you need. Basic condiments and spices for cooking are of course also available. Everything necessary for baking is also there since I like to bake.
A washing machine is also available; please ask me for assistance if you wish to use it. There is also a launderette in a neighboring street close by.
Interaction with Guests
Many guests I see either rarely or not at all during their stay, since I myself often travel or the guests have a different time rhythm from my own.
Otherwise, I am of course glad to provide tips on the best places in Berlin whenever wanted, depending on what the guest is interested in.
Sometimes I can also offer a small city tour, but only when desired. It is important to me that the guest is left alone and only given information when it is wanted.
Schöneberg stretches in the north to the Kurfürstendamm, where one can go shopping and visit the zoo. In the east it is joined to a new long-drawn-out park that connects it with Kreuzberg, not far from the former Tempelhof airport, whose free runways are now used for many sports. To the west it borders the residential district of Wilmersdorf. At its heart is the large Schöneberger Rathaus where Kennedy gave his famous speech.
The U4 station "Viktoria-Luise-Platz" is 100m away and connects various subway lines and to the S-Bahn ring around the city center of Berlin. Nollendorfplatz is only one station (or 7-minute walk) away. The largest Berlin U-Bahn station, which connects four lines brings you eg the U2 to Potsdamer Platz, the Brandenburg Gate and the Museum Island. Or is it the U1 directly to Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain with their lively night life? For shopping enthusiasts, the KaDeWe and the Kurfürstendamm at Wittenberg Platz are also only 10 minutes far. Or you just take the Metrobus M46, which runs every 10 min. driving off from the side street (Martin-Luther-Str.) to the Zoologischer Garten (Zoo) and the Southern Cross (Südkreuz). Since many guests wish to explore Berlin by bicycle (Berlin has a very good network of cycle paths) There is a bike rental shop in a side street nearby.
Other Things to Note
Airport: From Airport Tegel it takes about 14 (website hidden) taxi to get to the apartment and costs about € 26. By public transportation it takes about 25 minutes. Take the Bus "X9" to the train station "Zoo" and then the bus "M46" (direction "Südkreuz") until bus-station "Motzstr." From there it`s perhaps 200m.
From Airport Schönefeld is about 35-40 min by public transport. Please take the Bus until underground-station "Rudow". The "U7" until "Bayrischer Platz" and then one station with the unterground "U4" to "Viktoria-Luise-Platz".
You can also take the "S-Bahn" until "Innsbrucker-Platz" and from there the "U4". But sometimes the S-Bahn is not driving. So I would take the tube.
A taxi is of course faster but much more expensive. I guess €35.
Notice Board: In the room many flyers and information brochures are available on various aspects of the city. Many have been left behind by your predecessors. It would be nice if you added the collection and left your tourist brochures here if you do not need them any more.
Parking: In the street there are no reseved parking spaces and you can usually find a space nearby, even if not right in front of the building.
A house rules there though and this is hanging out by the landlord in the stairwell, but in all previous guests this really was not necessary. My neighbors in the house are all very nice and that is why there has never been any problems so far also. I find it very pleasant to set up any rules, but to trust the guest. He should feel free and at home!
From Sep 9 - 16, 2015 the minimum stay is 6 nights.
Simon was a perfect host. He was very flexible , communicative and helpful.
He prepared a very clean, well organized room, and the flat was kept perfectly clean and tided up during my whole stay.
The flat in itself is well conceived, modern, and in a quiet environment. The location is very good.
There is even a bike available for the guest. Which adds to the great Berlin experience.
Highly recommended place to stay while in Berlin.
Simon hat dafür gesorgt das ich mich von Anfang an wohl fühle.
Das Zimmer ist mit allem eingerichtet was man für einen Städtetrip benötigt, sei es mit Broschüren, Reiseführern und Stadtkarten. Aber auch ein paar Pflegeprodukte (Deo, Duschgel, Seife usw...)
Die Wohnungauch top geplegt und sauber!
Zentral gelegen und alle Hotspots der Stadt sind mit der U-Bahn in wenigen Minuten zu erreichen, auch das Fahrrad das Simon bereitgestellt hat war super und somit war auch der sportliche Aspekt in Berlin gesichert :-)
I warmly recommend this place and this host.
Simon gives you the exact and detailed information necessary for your stay. He also provides you everything you need for a pleasant visit in Berlin.
The apartment is very clean, spacious, well organized and equipped.
The neighborhood is quite and lovely , and it's easy to arrive everywhere by excellent public transportation, by bicycle or walking.
I really enjoyed my stay at Simon's. He had prepared so much information about the different places to visit and he even left some chocolates for us when we arrived. His home was very clean and perfectly organized and was close to many of the sites. I recommend!
The host was amazing! The neighborhood was very clean and safe. Simon was prepared with fresh towels, linens, suggestions, and advice. Great place.
Simon's apartment is neat, clean and modern situated in a quiet and convenient neighborhood. He is also very helpful and accommodating. Definitely a great place to stay in Berlin.
