Small fashion shops, great cafes, restaurants and supermarkets are nearby. Tuesdays and Fridays Berlin's liveliest "Bioriental" market is held three blocks away on Maybachufer. Every second sunday per month the more and more famous NOWKOELLN flea market is within 5 minutes walking distance.

Other Things to Note
CITY TAX:Unfortunately since January 2014, tourists staying overnight in Berlin up to 21 days are subject to paying an accommodation tax, the so-called Berlin City Tax. It affects all private overnight stays: all hosts such as hotels, guest houses, private landlords renting out their own flat while being gone, youth hostels or people like us, who just rent out one single flat, are obliged to ask their guests to pay the city tax. The accommodation providers have to transfer the tax to a special city tax office, and have to claim the same amount of money from their guests in turn. It is 5 % of the net payment. The tax does not apply on extra fees like the airbnb fees.
But, if you will stay in our apartment for business purposes, you will not have to pay the city tax.
All other guests we would politely ask to pay the 5% upon arrival at our apartment.
We will post it the exact numbers on the info sheets on the kitchen table.
Thank you for your cooperation!

Non Smoking Flat. No animals either, sorry!
No loud music after 10 pm - this is a domestic building.
The garden yard that you are overlooking can be used but you should treat the neighbors with respect.
Lisa is an awesome host. Staying in the Kreuzberg loft was one of the best AirBnB experiences we've had. The loft itself is super chill, in a great location around the corner from the U-bahn, and amongst really nice bars and restaurants. Lisa made us feel really welcome and comfortable, would definitely stay there again.
We were absolutely delighted with the apartment, and Lisa's warm welcome. It was a home from home, and we'll miss the space very much!
Thank-you Lisa and Eno! x
Lisa was very welcoming!! And organized! She had listed all the local attractions and restaurants. The apartment is beautiful and very tastefully decorated with everything one could possibly need for a lovely stay in Berlin.
Lisa was friendly, honest, helpful, and so easy to coordinate with. We arrived on a Saturday night and quickly connected with Lisa, making our plans for the week ahead and getting situated in the apartment. She has so many tips, and was a warm and welcoming host.
The apartment is perfect. Great location, stylish, comfortable, quiet. Bathroom is new and clean. It really felt like home for the week we were there.
Next time we are in Berlin, I will absolutely be contacting Lisa again!
Our host Lisa was very friendly, professional and helpful. We loved the accommodation, with its very comfortable bed, high ceilings, beautiful floors and large windows that looked out onto a private courtyard. We also appreciated that the large bed for two had separate duvets for each person, so that we could move around without disturbing our partner's sleep.
The small kitchenette was perfect to prepare light meals, which is great if you don't feel like going out to eat at a restaurant each evening. There is also a TV and music player for times when you just feel like relaxing at 'home'.
The couches are very comfortable and we enjoyed sitting at the large table in the lounge to enjoy our home prepared meals.
The apartment is also in a great location, near the U-bahn station, near a large department store that sells anything and everything you might need from clothing, hats, and scarves (yes winter was approaching while we were there) to a great supermarket section. There is also a gym on the top floor.
Around the corner from the apartment is an organic supermarket, which we loved buying fruits, vegetables, rye bread and yogurt from, and nearby is a great vegetarian restaurant Cafe V, which we returned to twice because the food was excellent. There's also a great fruit shop down the road.
I would highly recommend Lisa as host and the well-maintained studio apartment for anyone looking for a comfortable and safe stay in Berlin.
Coming from South Africa, security is also top of mind, the apartment felt very safe and secure.
Lisa went the extra mile when I was looking for a gym to go to nearby. She surfed the internet for me and then called around to several gyms in the area to see which one offered the best daily rate.
I rate my experience at the Loft Studio Apartment 5 stars. Thank you Lisa for a wonderful stay! I have no hesitation in recommending the Loft Studio Apartment.
The apartment is very well designed and so quiet. It made for a great stay in Berlin. The location is excellent and we discovered many good cafés and restaurants. Close to the subway and an easy walk to the canal. Lisa is a wonderful host and everything was perfectly organized. I had originally booked Soho House but I'm so glad we stayed here instead. We will definitely come back. Highly recommend.
Fantastic stay in Berlin. This is without doubt one of the best places I've stayed at using airbnb. Lisa was an amazing host; friendly, helpful and just lovely. We will come back.
