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 place was nice, the room was big enough and the beds were really nice. The location was also very good, everything we wanted to see was in biking range. The only dissapointment was the problem with the wifi, we couldn't plan our trips easily because of it. The hosts were good, eric and his colleagues were nice.
The apartment is clean, quiet and in a fantastic location. The bikes could do with some TLC but were very useful to have, and Berlin is a great city for cyclists (N.B. the bikes don't have lights, so bring your own if you have them). Our train was a bit late and there was some mix-up with Kyle meeting us at the apartment, which meant we were waiting outside for about half an hour – no one's fault but not ideal. The wifi didn't work during our stay – apparently outside Eric's control but it would be good if he had a more reliable system. Lastly the curtains are very thin and so light sleepers might have trouble. Otherwise everything was great: the bathroom is small but works, the bed is comfortable, the kitchen reasonably well-equipped and the whole space surprisingly large. But most of all, Kreuzberg is wonderful place to stay – can't recommend it highly enough.
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.
This place was perfect for us! It's a short walk from loads of good bars, food places and venues. We didn't use the bikes (I had an arm injury so couldn't cycle), but it was easy to walk around Kreuzberg. The apartment is only 15 walk from the Ostbahnhof (we arrived by train). The flat is clean, comfortable, light and spacious and has everything that you would need. It's perfect for a couple. We didn't do any cooking (too many good food places nearby), but it was nice to make coffee/tea/snacks when we wanted. The only downside would be that it's on the top floor (about 80 or 90 stairs), but this helps you to work off the berliner weisse beer and burgers! We definitely want to stay here again. (I want to come back and take advantage of the bikes!)
Excellent séjour d'une semaine à Berlin. Logement bien situé et au calme. Correspond bien à la description. Parking aisé et gratuit. Les vélos sont vraiment utiles pour se déplacer dans Berlin.
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!

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!
