Fancy living in Lala Wonderland? With swings in the hallway and located right in THE neighborhood?
Our fairytale 120 sqm 4 room apartment is housed in a typical old Berlin building with floorboards, stucco, high ceilings and old big windows and is located in the colorful neighborhood of ("Boxi") Boxhagener Platz in Fiedrichshain.
All rooms are fully renovated by us, full of art, furnished with attention to detail and decorated with unmistakable Lala flair.
We have one huge living room with a (day)bed plus two extra mattresses and 3 Bedrooms, so in total this apartment can host up to 11 people.
The cozy kitchen is fully equipped (huge family fridge, dishwasher, washing machine, coffee maker, etc.)
The bathroom has a bathtub where you can forget the time by watching the over 50 pieces of art hanging in there.
Not to mention the neverending hallway with the birch tree swing!
The living room:
Our "4 seasons", named after its full-room installation, is a huge (over 30m2) sun-drenched room and the heart of our apartment. Relax in large comfortable (day)bed in a light-filled bay with lots of pillows to sink into. Hanging over your head is the piece "winterleaves" that will lead you into dreaming.
The view spans. The eye catches on the wall a collage in black and white - naked girls dancing on the lawns of Art Nouveau, populated by mythical creatures and omniscient oysters - a tribute to love, to life and to infinite beauty.
Two big cozy armchairs give enough space to stop, rest by and contemplate on the "4 seasons". The installation symbolizes the circle of life, with its seasons, and reminds us of the beauty of Nature while on the road below the city life pulsates.
The ancient writing and dressing tables, as well as a clothes rack, and a collection of ancient hooks and shelves are provided to help with your daily organization. This turns the space easily into a 4th bedroom.
The first Bedroom - The Schöne Raum
Pass through a double-wing framed summer and autum tree door to enter this room. The view falls through a modern wonderlamp onto a wall full of art, a collage of mixed materials. Acient frames are meeting Lalas fabric, natures curiosities, and the old masters.
Next to the collage is a comfortable queen size bed inviting you to lay down - under a draped light cotton heaven.
The room has a big window and a big balcony door framed by handmade silk curtains, which seem to glow as light falls through them. A huge (and empty) art deco closet and a small wood desk completing the ensemble.
The second Bedroom - The Light Sparkled Room
This room is a pale purple and light filled room with a queen size bed (140cm) and a luxury king size blanket. If you were to open the balcony doors you would almost lay outside. Above the bed is a slowly moving hanging installation which guides you softly into dreamland.
A art deco dinner table is reused as a desk with a very comfortable Egon Eiermann chair. An ancient makeup table, and a free commode to store your belonging complete the space.
The closet will be closed during your stay.
The room has sunshine until the afternoon but the most beautiful glow it gets by night - when the handmade multicolor discoball beams hundreds of colorful reflections on the walls.
The third Bedroom - The Silent Green
This small cozy room is the most silent one - and the one with the biggest bed (160cm)! A dark green wall gives rest to the eye and hosts a colletion of hats from all eras.
A bordsystem, some acient hooks, a marmoreal sideboard and a big free commode for all your things complete the furniture.
In close proximity to the dwelling (meaning: you can walk it) are plenty of cafes, bars, restaurants, organic stores, supermarkets (one open 24/7), galleries, small theaters, shops and clubs from all the spectrum - from underground to Berghain. Around the corner is 2 times a week a nice market and on sundays one of the most popular flea markets in town. You are of course also connected to the middle of the city by all public transportation systems and taxis can be hailed right here on the street.
Berlin is best to be explored by bike and with it you are within 5 minutes of the river Spree, 10 minutes of the heart of Kreuzberg, and 15 of downtown Mitte.
In order to help you get around we can lend you our maps of Berlin and our neighborhood - full of our many years of experience and tips.
During your stay at our apartment we will move to our working apartment - which is just 10 min away so if there are any questions or situations: No worries, we are just some blocks away.
We look forward to letting you experience our world!
Clara & Marie

Thanks very much. very much enjoyed weekend. great position to feel right in the heart of East Berlin. not to be forgotten
Lovely apartment with personality right in the middle of The best Berlin nightlife spots and so close to the canal.Thank you Marie for the warm welcoming.
Great place to stay in Berlin! The area where this house is in Berlin is full of nice bars/restaurants. It is easy to park your car here which is for free also.
The house itself is nice and has a lot of space! Each bedroom is very different, but we liked them all. We stayed here to attend a fair in Berlin and just used the place to sleep so we did not use it as a tourist. But I can imagine if you are a tourist in Berlin and you are traveling with a small group of people this house is an ideal place to stay!
Besides the nice place, the host Clara is very friendly! We where not in need for tourist tips, but for sure she can explain you many nice places in Berlin.
By the way the Pizza place downstairs is very very very good!
We had an amazing stay at LaLaLand! The apartment is extremely well located with great local cafes & bars on your doorstep & walking distance to two major train stations. Our group reached 10 people for two of our four nights stay however we were all more than comfortable. This apartment makes you feel you have truly experienced the real Berlin & I would highly recommend you stay here! Clara's generosity was also appreciated!
Fantastic apartment, brilliant location, accommodating hosts. Could not recommend highly enough!
Wir haben, zeitweise zu sechst, einen ganzen Monat im Apartment von Clara und Marie verbracht und haben die Zeit sehr genossen. Die Wohnung ist sehr schön eingerichtet und man kommt immer gerne zurück. Die Zimmer sind alle schön gross und mit teilweise etwas erneuerungsbedürftigen Doppelbetten ausgestattet. Küche und Bad sind für viele Personen etwas klein aber (website hidden) war während unserem Aufenthalt über 10 Tage sehr heiss in Berlin, so dass wir kaum bei geschlossenen Fenstern schlafen konnten. Bei offenen Fenstern kann einem allerdings auch der Lärm der umliegenden Kneipen und der grölenden Gäste den Schlaf rauben. Für junge und junggebliebene Berlinbesucher, die an einem speziellen Ort wohnen möchten kann ich das Apartment der beiden, die ich leider nicht persönlich kennengelernt habe gerne weiterempfehlen.
Only good things to say, here is three good reasons to come back
Nr 1: The location:perfect located in Friedrichschain - the place to (website hidden) 2: The place: spacious, relaxing and (website hidden) 3: The host: Marie, friendly and easy to relate to.
Die Wohnung liegt wunderbar, ist sehr gut angebunden an die öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel - und für Leben ist gesorgt ;-) Es gibt Lokale rundherum, ob Pizza , Cocktail , Frühstück - alles da. Das Service mit Schlüssel, Wohnungsübergabe und soweit war problemlos und sehr zuvorkommend. Jederzeit wieder!
Absolutely fabulous! This place really was a fairy tale, we indulged in a little escapism in the heart of Berlin! So much to see and appreciate in this spacious and quirky apartment. Cannot recommend this apartment and its wonderful hosts Clara and Marie enough; so responsive, helpful, generous. Definitely take on the restaurant tips!
Would be back in a flash. A perfect retreat in an amazing city. My heart lies with Berlin even more after this trip! Thank-you Clara! <3
