About This Listing
A little charmer designed the Berlin way: stylish, arty, minimalist with tons of flair, nestling in a fab, creative-cum-procreative, central, well-connected area with plenty of cafes, restaurants, bars and shops. Here is to "home 'suite' home"!
This balcony beauty boasts the best of both, the bohemian and the bourgeois Berlin since it's situated in the city's 'creative cum procreative' heart, in Prenzlauer Berg.
It's very 'Berlin': arty, minimalist, charismatic. Beyond this the central one-room apartment is a calm and cosy comfort zone arranged with tender, love & care, offering an eclectic collection of vintage furniture and the odd artwork. It has a separate kitchen & bathroom with marvelous marble tiling.
It's a wonderful south-facing 4th-floor flat with a lift and lovely balcony set in a restored period building just off a leafy square, the picturesque and popular Helmholtzplatz.
The place is designed in a mid-century style and comes with high-speed internet, towels and linen. Natural materials and wall paint add to well-being and reduce the eco footprint. Its comfy double bed sleeps 2 guests.
Airbnb has featured my space as one of the top ten poetic getaways world wide in their blog.
The area offers an abundance of restaurants and cafes, a vast array of cultural outlets and a multitude of shops and markets. Mauerpark is only a stroll away, so is Kollwitzplatz and Kastanienallee ('Casting Alley') .
You are located in the LSD quarter, nothing to do with any narcotic intake but the square's north-to-south streets - Lychener, Schliemann, Duncker - of which the first's southern stretch is the most nocturnal bit with many a bar.
You'll find plenty of public transport. The metro U2 (in 800m) takes 6 min to Alexanderplatz, the 'scenic' tram ride with the M2 (in 350m) 14 min, while the S-Bahn (in 600 m) - circling the city - has you at either airport in 35 min.

Be kind rewind. This is a no-smoke-shoes-off apartment most suited for the light traveller. Please be respectful to the neighbours.
This is really a beautiful, colorful little apartment. It's clear that Yearn has put a lot of effort into making it attractive and comfortable. I really liked that it was very quiet, and yet merely step out the front door and all of bustling Berlin is there to explore. I feel very lucky that I was able to call it my home for a few days.
Yearn nous attendait à l'appartement, nous étions bien accueilli. 2 bières (le champagne de la Pils, nous attendaient dans le frigo). IL a mis à notre disposition des serviettes de bains.
L'appartement était calme. Nous étions invité à enlever nos chaussures ce qui dénote un souci du voisinage et une intégration harmonieuse avec les voisins de Yearn.
L'endroit était idéal pour nous, dans une partie bien agréable de Berlin, avec un côté "village" toute proportion gardée bien sûr.
Yearn was a great host, very friendly, correct and flexible. The arrival and check out were really good. He gave us a lot of advice wich was great!
The apartment was exactly as described in the ad, so we really loved it. The neighborhood was wonderful, quiet with lost of original bars and restaurants and some nice little shops.
