On 1.1.2014, the city of Berlin started charging a „City Tax“ for all private travelers in the amount of 5% of the net rent (total rent less all fees, cleaning and VAT). Business travelers and stays above 21 days are (website hidden) rent 150 Euro x 5% = 7,50 Euro
Our stay here was nice, Ben answered all our questions quickly so the communcation was smooth. The neighborhood was quiet, public transportation and shops are nearby. There were a few minuses - no basics in the kitchen such as salt, oil etc. In our opinion the flat is not as fancy as on the pictures - but it's nice anyway. There was probably some mildew on the shower walls.
Nos decidimos por el apartamento por lo bonito de las fotos, la cercania con el centro y lo cerca que estaba el apartamento del metro que conectaba con el centro de Berlin. Realmente fue una sorpresa lo mucho que se correspondía las fotos de la realidad. Piso en perfectas condiciones, limpio, silencioso y en un barrio agradable lleno de comercios.
Lo mejor sin duda, el trato tan familiar del anfitrión y de Monika! Nos facilitaron taxi al aeroporto y todo perfecto.
Mi nota 11 sobre 10!!
My friends and I loved our stay at Ben's place. It was a clean and cosy place, big enough for the 4 of us. The beds slept wonderful! It's close to the metro and was the perfect stay to discover Berlin. We didn't meet Ben but he send us the directions which were very clear.
Great accommodation and wonderful homebase for adventures in Berlin. The apartment has everything you might need for a weekend trip and would even work for a longer stay. Having towels, bedsheets, a hair drier etc. provided made packing much easier. We stayed with four persons, but it could easily accommodate more.
La descripción de la casa se asemejaba a la realidad y las respuestas a nuestras dudas o necesidades fueron atendidas rápidamente
Lovely apartment in a reasonable area, not too far away from a convenient U-Bahn station, supermarkets and restaurants. Host was very good and explained his requirements as well as instructions on how to access the apartment by email.
The host allowed us to check in to the apartment early, which was very welcome after 12 hours of travelling! Ben was a very uncomplicated, straightforward fellow to deal with and made our stay very comfortable.
Provided towels, an iron and ironing board, toilet paper, etc.
There is a washing machine and clothes airer in the apartment - great when travelling with only hand luggage!
- The shower in the apartment is prone to flooding
- One of Ben's neighbours, when I tried to make a phone call in the shared back yard, screamed at me and accused me and my party of littering the flowerbeds with cigarette butts (on our first day there and we are a non-smoking party)
Overall, this apartment was a brilliant base from which to explore an absolutely amazing city.
Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit in Berlin. Die Wohnung hatte einen guten Standort und wir waren wie beschrieben in 5 Minuten bei der Ubahn..die Schlüsselübergabe hat einwandfrei funktioniert und wir haben die Wohnung sofort gefunden.
Die Wohnung sah auf den Fotos ein bisschen schöner aus, als dann in Wirklichkeit. Was wohl auch an der Deko auf den Fotos und an dem Winkel und der Beleuchtung der Fotografie liegt. Der Platz hat für uns 7 gut ausgereicht. Nur im Bad wurde es manchmal sehr eng, was bei 7 Mädchen aber sowieso überall der Fall ist. Der Fernseher hat nicht wirklich funktioniert.
Alles in allem hatten wir eine tolle Zeit und die Wohnung war sehr sauber.
