The Space

Stunning 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment a stone's throw from the beautiful Kollwitzplatz and within about 20 minutes walking distance from Alexanderplatz. Excellent transport links with U2 subway within 5 minutes walking distance (Senefelderplatz) - this will take you straight all the way downtown, to Alexanderplatz in 5 minutes (from where you can also take the TXL aiport bus to Tegel), Unter den Linden in 10 minutes, Potsdamer Platz in 15 minutes and Ku'damm in c. 20 minutes. The S-Bahn station Schoenhauser Allee is also a 5 minute subway ride away, from there you can take the train directly to Schoenefeld airport.

The apartment is located on the 2nd floor (with lift) of a building which was first built in the 1950s but totally refurbished in an original style in the 1990s. The apartment is 52 sqm (c. 550 sq ft) in size, with a beautiful small wintergarden, a very comfortable 200 x 160cm bed, a large mirrored wardrobe, a cozy sofabed, an extra mattress to be used as additional couch or to accommodate an extra guest (in total the apartment sleeps 4 people), glass tables for dining and next to the couch, and a flat-screen TV. The kitchen has been fully equipped (email hidden), dishwasher, washerdryer, oven and cooker. The shower room has been recently refurbished with some large, warm stone tiles, wall-hung WC, a modern and spacious shower cabinet and lots of storage space and shelves. Wi-fi is available and included in the price.

Normally, the minimum stay is for 4 days but we can organise shorter stays on request, and we also offer discounts for certain periods.

We will also welcome our guests with a small something - a bottle of wine or prosecco or a box of chocolate.

Finally, we will be happy to answer all your questions on the city, and look forward to being your hosts in Berlin!

  • Stephan Gasteyger-
    Great location, great neighborhood! We loved staying here because of its easy access to the U-Bahn and the many good eateries nearby. The flat was very comfortable and had everything we needed for a great stay. Our host met us and gave us a good orientation to the area as well as the flat itself. We would love to stay there if we come to Berlin again!

  • Our experience was fantastic. Stephans colleague, Will, met us at the flat to give us the rundown on how things work etc.. The flat is absolutely pristine, and probably in the top few percent of listings. Everything is sparkly clean and new, even the inside of the cupboards! (I'm very fussy). All the equipment and utensils are new, tasteful and work well. The bathroom and kitchen look newly renovated and are very smart. The bed linen and towels are lovely akin to a five star hotel.

    The flat is in a quiet building but on a busy street. The windows are double glazed so if closed , the place is quiet. However, we visited at the warmest time probably on record, (it was 33-35), the windows needed to be open. We live in a rural,area so found the traffic disturbing, but for most folks I don't think it would be a problem.

    We had friends come around for dinner and they were quite envious. Yes, the place is so nice, you feel comfortable entertaining.

    The apartment is so close to everything. We hardly used public transport. It is a 25 minute down hill walk to museum island. There is a U Bahn a few minutes away and trams also a few minutes away
    There are a few places close by for food shopping and loads of cafés.

    We are so fortunate to have found this gem and it made for a very special time in Berlin.

  • Nous avons séjourné une semaine à cet appartement début juin 2014. Nous avons été très satisfaits à tous égards : qualité de l'appartement, situation géographique, proximité des services et des transports en commun. Nous avons été chaleureusement accueillis par Will qui a été de très bon conseil et généreux dans les informations qu'il nous a transmises. L'appartement est propre et coquet. On y retrouve tout ce dont on a besoin pour un séjour de toute longueur.
    Bref, une excellente semaine à Berlin grâce à Stephan et à Will.
    Merci à tous les deux

  • This was our first trip using AIRBNB and this place was the best of our 3 locations. Spacious, light-filled, well furnished with a nice view. Well-furnished kitchen. Great location with easy access to the UBahn at Senefelder Platz which got us all over town. Can even walk to many locations. Quiet and restfull for reenergizing after a day afield. Make sure to go to the flea market at Mauer Park on Sundays for the great music and food as well as the oddities for sale.
    Stephan' s host, Will was very helpful and made our stay quite comfortable. Would go back again in a heartbeat.
    Cheers,
    Michael & Maria

  • Amazing flat in an amazing location and a great host! We haven't met Stephan, but he replied to all my (nagging) emails at once and his friend, Will, received us very warmly. He had lots of tips for our stay. The flat is tidy and has everything you can wish for, it is also close to all the major tourist locations. We had such a great time, wish we could have stayed more. Book this flat and you will not regret it!

  • Bright flat, very well located near metro station and centre of Prenzlauerberg.

    Flat is very well equipped (e.g. kitchen has cooker, microwave, dishwasher, etc), and was spotlessly clean.

    Schonhauser Allee is quite a busy street for traffic if you are bothered by traffic noise.

  • My wife and I with our little son spent one week in Stephan’s apartment. We had a very comfortable stay in Berlin, thanks to the apartment which is perfectly located, in a quiet and clean neighborhood, close to the very efficient public transit system of Berlin. Prenzlauer Berg is a wonderful part of Berlin, very green with lots of nice restaurants (our favorite: nearby Mao Thai). The apartment is very cozy, nicely decorated and clean. If we come back to Berlin, we sure will pick this apartment again. Thanks Stephan, thanks Will! Pascal and family

  • This is a cute apartment in a lovely part of Berlin, close to the Senefelderplatz U-Bahn station and numerous cafes and restaurants (Fischfabrik was our favourite for good seafood and Bonanza Coffee Heroes for great coffee!). We stayed as a family of 4 with two young children (aged 10 & 7). The apartment is ideally to suited to 2 people, but we managed comfortably enough with 4 of us. The apartment was well presented, clean, lots of natural light and a modern well equipped kitchen and bathroom. Stephan's colleague Will was there to receive on arrival and was very helpful in providing lots of useful advice as first time visitors to Berlin. All in all, this apartment represents great value with a very comfortable stay in a great location. Thanks Stephan!

  • We really enjoyed our stay at this little flat. It is very central and in a nice, trendy area but quiet and peaceful with an old cemetery the view from the window (very beautiful even in bad weather). The host was very welcoming, friendly and easy-going. It is a basic flat but has everything you need for a weekend break and warm and comfortable. Would definitely stay there again and recommend it highly to others.

About
I love travelling and therefore want to make sure my guests have a fantastic experience too. I split time between London and Berlin but also enjoy travelling to other major cities or some remote destinations.... this could be in the mountains or somewhere on a beach. I also like reading, writing, music, going out, working out and eating well!
