Riverfront Panorama Apartment

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Friedrichstraße, Berlin, Berlin 10117, Germany

You won't find a more centrally located place than this one, seriously-just look at the map and read some reviews! The apartment can accommodate up to four people. You have fast internet and a fully equipped kitchen.

The Space

Perfect if you are coming to Berlin and want to be up front and center! The fully-equipped Riverfront Panorama apartment is on the seventh floor of a riverfront property across from the Museum Island (Pergamon, Bode Museum) and is located close to the Friedrichstrasse station in Berlin Mitte. It is directly on the river Spree promenade (Schiffbauerdamm), spacious (100 square meters) and commands a stunning panoramic view of the entire city (Reichstag, Sony Center, Potsdamer Platz, Berlin Cathedral, Museum Island, Pergamon Museum, City Hall and Television Tower).
Five minutes’ walk bring you to the Bode-Museum or to Monbijou and Oranienburgerstrasse with its international restaurants, a synagogue, the Old Post Office (modern art museum), the arts center and Hackescher Markt and the art gallery district of Berlin. For foodies the Torstrasse is a five minute walk and truly a paradise.
The Brandenburg Gate, Gendarmenmarkt, the exclusive shops of the upper Friedrichstrasse, Humboldt University and the Berlin Cathedral are also only a stone's throw away. The television tower of the "Alex" overlooks the scene.
Riverfront Panorama apartment can accommodate up to four people in two rooms that are at opposite ends of the large apartment.
The spacious living room (second bedroom) has a computer hooked up to the surround system for listening to CDs, internet Radio or your own music from a USB stick or MP3 player (currently in repair). The second living room with the dining table ensures the place is spacious and not cramped even if you are a group of 3-4 people. You can relax wonderfully after an active day in the city or work at the desk. Of course, the apartment provides broadband Internet and wireless WiFi. There is no television (the view out the windows is 100 times better than tv). If you just have to watch tv, you can turn the flatscreen on the computer around facing into the room and watch it on the internet.
The kitchen is fully-equipped for you to make meals that you can enjoy in the spacious dining room area while enjoying the panorama view. The supermarket (Edeka) in the Friedrichstrasse train station is open until midnight and on Sundays. There is also a Rewe supermarket just outside the station with similar opening hours. The bathroom has a tub and hair dryer. You can also use the washing machine.
Sheets and towels are included.
The Riverfront Panorama apartment is in the middle of Berlin's theater district. You can see the famous Berliner Ensemble from the living room and the Friedrichstadtpalast from the bedroom. The revived Admiralpalast, Deutsches Theater, the Opera house and countless other stages are just a stone's throw away.
Parking: There is some limited free parking in the neighbourhood and there are several parking garages within a few minutes' walk that offer special rates.
Minimum stay: 3 days
Maximum: 3 months
The Riverfront Panorama is a non-smoking apartment and suitable for children and is wheelchair accessible.
In a nutshell a review I received describes exactly why I love sharing my apartment:
"It's clear from the apartment contents that you're a traveller too and have many similar interests to us which created the lovely feeling that we were borrowing a friend's apartment for the week. Knocks the spots off a week in some faceless hotel! Thanks again for all your help, and all the very best for a healthy, happy and successful 2014."

Guest Access

You have full access to the facilities the spacious apartment provides.

Interaction with Guests

The Neighborhood

I love the fact that you can enjoy the beauty of the river (6 bridges) from home. There isn't much you can't find within 5 minutes' walk: First class museums, Berlin's incredibly creative cuisine (foodies will be in heaven), great pubs and cafes, galleries, theaters - everything from classic to underground.

Getting around

You have your choice of subway, tram, bus, boat, taxi - all within a minute's walk. Plus, this is one of the nicest parts of Berlin to explore on foot!

  • Trent's apartment is very well located on the river and very central. Shops, restaurants, transport and all facilities are virtually just outside the door. The views from the apartment are as advertised. Trent is a good and speedy communicator.

  • Perfect location and cool flat!

    March 2014
  • The location of Trent's Riverfront Panorama Apartment was perfect for us!
    It was a relatively quick taxi ride from Tegel airport, the connections to public transport are excellent, and we could also walk to many attractions.
    The communication with Trent was great - he was always quick to respond prior to and during our stay.
    One thing we really liked about the apartment was that there were two separate sleeping rooms. In addition to the bedroom, there's a pull-out bed in the living room and as the door closes, it's also a private space.
    Also great to have a separate kitchen and dining area.

  • Perfect city centre location. Overlooking Friedrichstraße station. Nice & quiet in the evenings. Internet was good but did lose connection for 10 seconds every 5 minutes or so (only wifi, not wired). Would stay again. Thanks Trent!

    March 2014
  • Trent's apartment is spatious, simply though effectively furnished and decorated, and has a nice view. It is very conveniently located right above one of Berlin's main shopping streets but because of double glazing and the position on the 6th floor there are surprisingly little street noises. Trent communicated well and fast. The keys were handed over by a pleasant cleaning lady, with no complaints about my being late because of a train delay.

  • Trent was a great host! He was easy to reach and made everything run smoothly. He also has a few friends at the bar downstairs! I didn't get to spend too much time in the apt but it was great. Clean! Plus, he had a hairdryer which is good to know if you'll need one. Thanks so much Trent! I'll use this listing again!

    February 2014
  • Booking and communications all very smooth, comprehensive instructions for finding the apartment made for a stress free arrival.

    The apartment is fantastic: well appointed, comfortable, a real home from home in the very centre of Berlin. We spent hours admiring the views from the windows!

    Minor annoyances were only two: the computer had broken the week before we arrived and because of the Xmas holiday it hadn't been possible to get it fixed (fortunately wifi was still working though). The CD player was also broken which was a bit frustrating as we had enthusiastically browsed the huge library of CDs at the apartment! These issues really were minor though, in comparison with the outstanding week we enjoyed in Berlin.

    This is the ideal base for exploring the city. Walking distance from most major sights and directly on S/U Bahn, tram and bus routes if you want to go further afield. Friedrichstrasse will fulfill any shopping needs you have within a five minute walk (supermarket, chemist, baker etc). Huge range of restaurants and bars also within easy reach.

    It was such a joy to look out every morning and see the river just beneath our window and the sun rising over the city. We're missing Berlin badly already! We look forward to a return visit soon.

  • Trent is a very nice host with great patience, considering every detail to provide convenience to the guests. The flat is amazing! You can enjoy the river view from both windows of the living room and the kitchen. The rooms are cozy and bright with natural light, very warm with heating system as well. Additionally, the location is wonderful, just a few minutes walk to the tube and the fabulous musuem island. Really appreciate!

    December 2013
  • Trent's apartment is the perfect base for a stay in Berlin. Within walking distance of many sights and just a short stroll to Friedrichstrasse U and S Bahnhof if you want to take the train anywhere. The apartment is spacious, clean and comfortable and Trent was responsive to any questions. Key pickup was easy and Wi-Fi worked fine. Thanks for everything Trent - really looking forward to coming back soon.

    November 2013
  • Great location and view. The apartment is specious (we were three) , clean, pleasant, well heated and full of daylight. Basic furniture, bedclothes and towels. Was really nice coming back to it by the end of the day. Trent was very responsive and helpful. We enjoyed out stay very much.

About
“Creating a World without Poverty” – Muhammad Yunus and I share a vision of placing poverty into a museum in our lifetimes – so we don’t forget what it was. Many years ago I began dedicating myself to issues surrounding poverty and the environment after an extended trip through Asia and Africa in 2000. I began to wonder – what if you could harness the power of the free market to solve the problems of poverty, hunger, inequality? My personal journey has taken me to many places on this planet in many capacities. As a young student growing up in the United States during the height of the cold war, I could not phantom why people on the other side of the world would want to kill me. Conflict and conflict management in international affairs became an underlying theme in everything I did. I visited the Soviet Union to dispel the myth. Later I became a professor of transition theory at the University in Kiev, Ukraine, worked in the State Department of the United States, launched an internet company, established a foundation and consulted international organizations such as the OSCE and the Council of Europe. I discovered there are many ways to tackle conflict. But where could I have the most impact? Now, I am focusing my efforts nearly 100% on Social Business as a Social Entrepreneur – a pioneering model for nothing less than a new, humane form of capitalism. I understood that conflict prevention starts with reducing poverty. I have always liked the motto “Doing well by doing good” and am motivated by triple bottom line metrics – people planet profit.
