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) I also at all times have two free bikes available! In addition, 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. Bus until underground-station "Rudow". U7 until "Bayrischer Platz" and then one station with the unterground U4 to "Viktoria-Luise-Platz". A taxi is of course faster but much more expensive.
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!
Simon war ein toller Gastgeber, stets hilfsbereit, geduldig und hat mir super Tipps für die Erkundung Berlins gegeben. Er ist sehr gut vorbereitet und ich kam mühelos an den Schlüssel und in die Wohnung, obwohl er persönlich nicht anzutreffen war bei meiner Anreise. Alles war vorbereitet und perfekt beschrieben, also leicht zu finden.
Die Beschreibung der Unterkunft entspricht der Unterkunft. Es war sauber, bequem und ich fand es geräumig. Ich hab mich wohlgefühlt.
Die Nachbarschaft ist sehr ruhig und auch der Park am Viktoria-Luise Platz ist sehr idyllisch.
My stay was very comfortable and enjoyable. The apartment is centrally located and is very close to public transportation. It is clean and cozy. Kitchen is fully equipped and convenient to use. There were no problems with WiFi. Simon is not intrusive yet helpful when there is a need. I cannot think of anything but positive to tell about Simon and his apartment. Everything is so convenient that it doesn't take an effort to adjust to the new place!
Great place to stay. Simon is a very friendly person and my time in his house was very nice.
Thanks for make everything so easy .
Excellente chambre, qui offre tout ce dont on peut avoir besoin. Surtout, Simon est un hôte très accueillant, qui est toujours là pour nous aider en cas de question ou de problème. La chambre était conforme à mes attentes, voire supérieure ! Pas grand-chose à rajouter pour un séjour qui s'est formidablement bien passé.
Simon ist ein sehr respektvoller, diskreter, hilfsbereiter und liebenswerter Gastgeber, in dessen Wohnung es sehr leicht ist, sich wohl zu fühlen. Die ruhige und helle Wohnung ist in angenehmer, schlichter Eleganz gehalten, vermittelt den Eindruck von Leichtigkeit, Individualität und Freude; sie ist auch sehr praktisch eingerichtet - eine Wohnung zum Wohlfühlen. Außerdem ist sie immer blitzsauber und ordentlich. Die Lage der Wohnung ist sehr günstig. Supermärkte und Restaurants in der Nachbarschaft, alle Verkehrsmittel in unmittelbarer Nähe zu erreichen.
Das nächste Mal in Berlin - unbedingt wieder bei Simon!
The week I spent in Simons apartment was really great. First of all I guess because this didn't feel like an anonymous hotel - like thing, it rather felt like staying with a friend.
Secondly, the bed in Simons spare bedroom is amazingly comfortable, which is, after all I guess a very crucial aspect of a place you visit primarily because, well you need somewhere to sleep.
And thirdly, because Simon is a very nice fella, who values hospitality greatly.
Bottom line: If you're in Berlin and you're looking for a place to stay, Simon is definitely the guy you should call up.
habe mich sehr wohl gefühlt. Zimmer, Wohnung, Bad, Küche - alles sehr sauber ordentlich, Gastgeber sehr nett, die ganze Gegend um den Platz sehr gediegen, mit einigen schönen Lokalen; Supermarkt in unmittelbarer Nähe. Ich würde sofort wieder dort wohnen.
