About this listing
The apartment is stylishly furnished with a new kitchen.
It is located on the 4th floor of an old Berlin building in the quiet side wing. The view out the 4 big windows is one of sky + city life.
The house has no lift !
The apartment is a loft style flat with one large open space.
There is a great mattress on the double bed and we have always fresh, hotel style linen. The kitchen is new + spotless. It has all crockery, cutlery, pots + pans + glasses. There is a microwave oven and a hob for cooking.
The bathroom has a shower.

The house stands on the edge of where The Berlin Wall once was + the area is full of cafes, bars, flea markets, museums etc.
There is an Underground station, Bernauer Strasse, at the end of the street. This connects you to Berlin's extensive public transport network.
In the courtyard it is also possible to lock-up your bicycle should you choose to navigate Berlin by bike!

Trudy's apartment in Berlin is fantastic. We had excellent communication to get keys and they met us on time as promised. The unit is actually better than the photos and is quite big and new and modern. The area is perfect in walking distance to bars/restaurants. I highly recommend this unit to anyone.
Neighbourhood was perfect it was near the tube station and walkable to the berlin wall as well. The room was in perfect condition. Everything was as seen in the pictures. Checking in and out was easy and convenient would definitely recommend and stay here again!
Unfortunately our beginning was not a happy one.The agent was perhaps given incorrect information or misinterpreted the time of our arrival hence we were left on the side walk in the heat for over an hour after our journey. I do realise he had other clients to attend to, but we had given the correct information to Trudy. The apartment was quite satisfactory and the location excellent however there is no elevator in the building and the apartment is over 80 steps up, which, with a case even 12 kls, is difficult but fortunately the agent graciously helped by carrying my case. The building has very poor wifi so we resourted to going to local cafes to answer our emails and complete our daily planning. The agent actually told me that my ipad and phone were the problem. Despite all this we loved Berlin and the location near Bernaustrasser.
Pauline + her husband booked my apartment which on the description states it is on the 4th floor + the house has no lift. I was not to know that they where in their 70's or I would have suggested finding a different location :(
There seems to have been some confusion with the check-in which is fortunately a rare occurrence. I ask my guests for their arrival time in the city + then that they call to confirm that they are on their way to the apartment. This combination leads to a perfect check-in 99% of the time.
I don't have an agent.... it's just me, my wonderful housekeeper and professionals that clean.
Please read a few of my many other reviews AND don't book this apartment if you have trouble with climbing stairs :)
This is the second time we've stayed in this building and we'll keep coming back. Everything was very simple and the place is lovely and well located.
Lovely apartment in a great part of Berlin - lots of nice restaurants and parts of the Wall around. Trudy was very helpful before we arrived, telling us what's in the local area and how to get there from the airport, and her housekeeper promptly met us at the apartment on our arrival.
Wouldn't recommend the apartment for people who are unfit at climbing stairs as it is up 5 flights but don't let this put you off of you're fit - it's worth the climb!
Très bon séjour à Berlin, l'appartement est bien situé de plus les transports sont à proximités on peut se rendre dans le centre en quelques minutes
Dommage pour les 5 étages, l'appartement est bien décoré !
L'appartement de Trudy est aussi bien que la description : calme, clair et bien aménagé. Le quartier, agréable (dommage peu de restos le soir) a l'avantage d'être dans le centre, bien desservi par le métro.
Mais mauvais accueil de l'homme de ménage que nous avons du attendre devant l'appartement presque une heure le soir de notre arrivée.
Pour Trudy : un petit contact même par mail durant notre séjour aurait été sympa !

About the Host, Trudy
I am an Australian Berliner! I have been living in Berlin for over 10 years + having studied Architecture in Perth W.A took to the great apartments Berlin has to offer.
I have great people working for me, I have a 'thing' about good beds so if you want a good comfy bed on your travels I have only great ones!
I have a collection of apartments spread around the city and hence have people to help me have everything run smoothly. I don't live in the apartments myself. I have renovated them all thou and they are my personal property.
My apartments are of a hotel style with empty wardrobes etc. and no cosmetic collections filling the bathrooms. We have white hotel linen and towels freshly delivered and professional cleaning :)
