About this listing
Great apartment, great neighborhood. What else do you need?
Our apartment is in the heart of the popular Friedrichshain district directly at the Boxhagenerplatz. The neighbourhood has everything to offer that you would expect from Berlin: lively streets, big variety of bars, restaurants and night clubs, and lots of Berlin art and culture. With the subway station Warschauerstr only being a short walk away, the apartment is well connected to the subway grid making it a convenient spot to explore the rest of Berlin. The “Party Tram” M10 is also close by and will take you in just 10 minutes to the popular district of Prenzlauer Berg.
The apartment is equipped with everything that you would need for a comfortable stay in Berlin. The apartment was built in a typical Berlin style around the turn of the century. It has charming wood floors, high ceilings and large windows. The apartment is totally equipped and is situated on the first floor of a quite and nice courtyard.
The living room has a comfortable pull out couch for two, a new flat screen TV, DVD player, stereo system, and a WIFI free of charge. The separate bedroom has a queen size bed. The kitchen has everything that is needed for cooking meals and making breakfast. The bathroom has a large shower. The apartment gets professionally cleaned and sheets and towels are included in our prices. We are always around to answer questions and to help out. So don’t hesitate to email or call us.
Seit dem 1.1.2014, erhebt die Stadt Berlin von allen Privatreisenden eine 5% City Tax auf die Nettomiete (Gesamtmiete abzüglich Reinigung, MwSt., Gebühren). Diese City Tax wird von uns für die Stadt Berlin eingesammelt. Geschäftsreisende und Aufenthalte über 21 Tagen sind von der Steuer ausgenommen.
hier ein Beispiel:
Nettomiete 150 Euro x 5% = 7,50 Euro
On 1.1.2014, the city of Berlin started charging a „City Tax“ for all private travellers in the amount of 5% of the net rent (total rent less all fees, cleaning and VAT). Business travellers and stays above 21 days are (website hidden) rent 150 Euro x 5% = 7,50 Euro
The apartment was exactly as described and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay.
The surrounding area was great and had lots of good bars and places to eat.
The only slight downside was that there was quite a lot of noise in the mornings from the courtyard and surrounding neighbors, especially when the windows are open. But overall the flat itself is a really nice place to stay.
Location is great, with plenty of restaurants and small, independent shops nearby, and tram, bus and metro close by. The apartment is also ok, with all the basic necessities. The entrance and the back yard looks pretty rough, but this is fairly common in Berlin, and I have seen worse!
A few tings could have been better, though. Firstly, the person who was supposed to deliver the keys to us was almost an hour late, which caused us a bit of stress, as we were travelling with a baby and a two year old. Also the internet is really unstable (we had to log on between 30 and 50 times every day- and we were out and about most of the day), but the owner keeps insisting that it's more than good enough...
Lastly, people who are travelling with small kids should note that the floors are extremely creaky (more than normal for Berlin apartments- we have stayed in a few). We had to mark certain spots on the floor that were "safe" to tread on, or else we would have woken our kids up several times every night.
Wir hatten keinen direkten Kontakt zu Ben, da alles wunderbar und ohne Komplikationen klappte. Die Wohnung ist schön, gut eingerichtet, perfekt gelegen mitten im Boxhagener Kiez und trotzdem ruhig. Viele gute und preiswerte Restaurants finden sich um die Ecke.
Key holder arrived on time and an issue we had with the wi-fi was quickly resolved. The apartment was good and as advertised, however the entrance and hallway were not well maintained and are very unwelcoming. Appreciate these are common areas but it is in the interests of all owners to keep these areas looking good.
The apartment is in a great area, loads of restaurants and night-life.
Die Wohnung war genau wie beschrieben. Zweckmäßige Ausstattung. Alles hat nach Plan geklappt. Zentrale Lage Nähe Boxhagener Platz. Ruhige Nachbarschaft.
Die Lage der Wohnung ist TOP, für einen Berlin Aufenthalt bestens geeignet. Cafés, Restaurants, Kneipen in unmittelbarer Nähe. Die Wohnung ist sehr ruhig gelegen, wir haben uns super wohl gefühlt und kommen bestimmt wieder. Danke an Ben und Monika für die schnelle und unkomplizierte Kommunikation.
Spacious, modern and very clean appartment in a great neighbourhood. Lots of restaurants, stores and bars in the area and a walking distance to some of Berlins best clubs. Because the appartment is located in a courtyard behind other appartments it is nice and queiet because it's isolated from the noises that come from the street. Also the pull out couch was surprisingly comfortable.
