Interaction with Guests
This is a private apartment for you.
This quiet apartment is located in Kreuzberg, on the border of Mitte, the center of Berlin. Kreuzberg is a lively, artsy, and very affordable part of western Berlin. Being very multicultural, it attracts a variety of visitors and residents. Many festivities and events take place here, from the May 1st street parties, to the Carnival of Cultures. Görlitzer Park, one of the largest parks in Berlin, is in the spring summer and fall alive with picnickers and barbecuists, frolicking dogs and flying frisbees.
There are many possibilities in Kreuzberg. The areas near Schlesisches Tor, Oranienstrasse, and the beloved Bergmann Kiez are a great start. Numerous great clubs, unique bars, cozy cafes, and delicious restaurants make for more than enough to keep you busy.
There are many attractions around, from the daytime touristy stuff to the night-time Club action. There are several supermarkets as well as restaurants within easy walking distance.
Just in front of the door is a stop for the 265 Bus. The apartment is 7 minute’s walk (or one stop with bus) from Schlesisches Tor on the U1 (green) line. Ostbahnhof is 2 stops apway with bus, and offers S-Bahn and Intercity trains.
You will have access to easy directions after you
reserve this apartment.

The apartment itself was cozy. We felt at home there. It is well located in Kreuzberg and was easy to find. While we were there, the wifi didn't work, which made it a little difficult at times. After a few emails and calls to Eric, he assured me that it was the internet company's fault, as their network was out all over the area. Overall, it was a nice place to stay.
Excellent place to stay, would highly recommend; the host was very accessible and we were met on time on arrival. The flat was in good condition, with lots of bits and bobs around making it feel very homely. The beds were very comfortable and the place is bigger than it looks in the photo's.
Finally, the location is fantastic!
Everything was ok, just like it looked like in airbnb.
Eric's place was absolutely perfect. He was incredibly helpful from the minute we booked the apartment to the time we left. We communicated via text message and he had his friend let us into the apartment and explain all of the rules. The room looked exactly like the pictures and the natural lighting was beautiful. We loved the location and we had access to the entire city. The apartment was super clean and felt brand new. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen was incredibly useful. The area was very quiet. No complaints! Would love to stay here again in the future.
We enjoyed the flat very much.
Good location right by East side gallery.
Having the bikes also made things easy for us. Thankyou
Il nostro Ospite é stato molto gentile e la comunicazione é stata veloce ed efficace. L'appartamento è come appare nelle foto. Il quartiere di Kreuzberg è vivace e pieno di vita ad ogni ora,ma l'appartamento è collocato in una zona tranquilla e i vicini sono silenziosissimi.Una vera oasi di pace! Lo raccomanderei sicuramente.

About the Host, Eric
I'm down to earth, like to meet new people, be with friends, travel, cook, eat, drink, snowboard---not necessarily in that order. When I have the time, I like to work with plastic, making art or objects. I am currently building a startup for specialty printing (feel free to ask ;) of art.
I came to Berlin in 2006, absolutely loved the city, and decided to stay. Originally I wanted to open a hostel here, but now I host in apartments instead. Most of the flats I have listed here are from other owners, I take care of them in their absence. Working with multiple apartments can be quite hard work, but my favorite part is meeting with my guests, it is very rewarding.
I know my way around Berlin pretty well, and can give good tips on where to go when you are in the city. I do my best to make sure the flats are accommodating and comfortable, as I am a traveler myself.
I have an agency, we are now a team of 5 people working together, so do not be surprised if you get an answer from Szandra on my account or if you meet someone altogether different at the apartment, you will be well taken care of, and you can always reach someone who can help you out if need be.
People are important! We will do our best to satisfy your needs. Our apartments are kept very clean, and we respond to all feedback. Professionally cleaned sheets and towels are included, so is a hair dryer and iron. You will also find little comforts in our apartments, such as tea, books, spices... Calendars are up to date, and we are on time. We work hard so you can enjoy your vacation!
