Classic West Berlin location in Charlottenburg, directly off the Ku-Damm. Tree-lined quiet street. You won't find many Mitte nightclubs or graffiti on the corner, but plenty of restaurants, culture, parks, cafes and shopping.
I LOVE my flat in Berlin, and so will you !!!
This is a comfortable and chic Charlottenburg home that invites respect and consideration by its guests.
Located on a quiet tree-lined street just steps from the famous 'Kurfuerstendamm' (nickname: 'Ku-Damm' ) in a typical Berliner 'Altbau' ( older building ), you will find the charm of the 1920's.
Wide plank flooring, woodwork and mouldings, stucco detailing, high ceilings, double french doors and windows are just some of its charm. Altbau
The spacious and newly remodeled kitchen features a gas-stove, convection oven, refrigerator/freezer, a washing machine, microwave, and comes fully equipped with chef's cooking utensils.
The tiled bathroom provides a tub-shower combination.
In the large bedroom, you will sleep comfortably in a king-sized bed, and there is a 2-door wardrobe to store away your items.
The living-room has about 260 sf ( 24 square meters ), an additional day-bed, and you will enjoy the sweet balcony on warm days.
There are gas-radiators in each room.
The flat is 732 sf ( 68 square meters ), and will easily sleep 2 to 4 .
W-Lan ( Wi-FI ) and TV with DVD collection, included in the rate.
'Away from home', you will feel very much AT HOME in this sophisticated Charlottenburg flat.
You will be provided w/ detailed information as to where to ring upon your arrival, w/ the information of a local contact, and a map of the building.
( As this is a PRIVATE rental, NO on-site manager will be unable to assist you)
Very close to 'Adenauer Platz' ( Underground, U7 ), the S-Bahn station of 'Charlottenburg', as well as several Bus-Lines going up and down the 'Ku-Damm'.
Everywhere, there are parks, markets, cafes, restaurants, grocery stores and shops of all kind. Children's play grounds can also be found nearby.
Tipp ( my favorite ): 'Stuttgarter Platz' (which the Berliner calls 'Stutti')
I am looking forward to hosting you in exciting Berlin.

This was our first experience with using Airbnb. Since we aren't sure what expectations we should have had beforehand, this review is based on our general expectations and individual standards.
-Kathy was helpful in advance of our arrival, and punctually met us as agreed.
-She efficiently explained any needed information about the flat.
-She offered to let us stay as long as needed on the check-out date.
-Quiet and safe neighborhood/building in very close proximity to grocers, pharmacies, drug stores (personal care items), and public transportation. U-Bahn was 0.5km away.
-Comfortable Queen bed, super comfortable couch, deep bathtub, automatic thermostat.
-Gas range, microwave, cable TV with English news, books/information about Berlin.
-General cleanliness of flat was not up to our standards, especially given the €60 cleaning fee. Crumbs/dirt on kitchen counters/table, poorly washed dishes/utensils in cabinets, dust, etc. Given that, we ended up buying a new brush and sponges for washing dishes, and a disinfectant kitchen cleaner.
-Water heating system is very problematic and hard to predict. The water was either ice cold or scorching hot. This made taking showers a chore.
-Toilet is German washout/shelf style. For those of us who are used to using toilet bowls with water, this is an uncomfortable experience.
-The bed was not king-sized as described. This was a major disappointment, especially since we mentioned the king bed in our inquiry.
We will definitely use Airbnb again, as the overall experience was OK.
It was the second time for my colleague Michael to stay in Kathy's apt.
Great apartment in a fantastic part of town. Kathy is also a great host, making check in very easy. Recommended!
The flat was clean, conveniently located and the host was extremely helpful in getting checked in. Highly recommend!
Kathy was very responsive on mails . She was not there but her friend Angela checked us in. She came around to the apartment once again to answer some of our questions. Great neighborhood in the heart of West Berlin two S Bahn stations and two U Bahn stations within walking distance. The apartment is cozy and sunny.
It was a great apartment with a very good location, it is safe and quiet at night. Even though i didn't get to meet kathy in person, her friend Angela was nice enough to check me and my friends in. The temperature of the shower was a little hard to adjust, it was either too hot or too cold, but i'm sure once that's fixed, it would be a perfect apartment in Berlin.
Die kleine Wohnung im Hinterhaus hat eine perfekte Lage ganz nah am Kuhdamm. Extrem zu empfehlen ist der kleine Viatnamese auf der Strasse! Super lecker, habe mir sogar etwas mit nach Hause genommen, nach Düsseldorf...
Es ist halt ein Altbau und nicht so mega luxuriös, aber es hat einfach Stil und wir würden sofort wieder kommen. Die Schlüsselübergabe war herlich unkopliziert, wie der ganze Verlauf der Vermietung.
Wir waren froh, dass wir zwei Wochen ein zu Hause hatten und nicht im Hotel schlafen mussten. Gerne komme ich in die Wohnung zurück, beim nächsten Berlin (website hidden): Geile old shool Kaffe "Maschine"...
