AND THE WHOLE STORY...
The apartment is brand new and beautiful. Less than 10 mins walk from Ostbahnhof International station (all the airport trains stop here first, so you don't have to change to the metro or bus with your luggage) and slap in the middle of Alexanderplatz (where the city centre begins) and Friedrichshain, Berlin's most happening neighbourhood, with tons of restaurants and delicious food. Name a country and it's here, with super cheap prices.
Whatever your age and whether you want to go sightseeing, dancing (Berghain is just around the corner), wandering or simply hang out in cool cafes and markets, the best of the capital is all around us.
The apartment is on three levels with a lovely double height living room and open plan kitchen on the middle floor. It's absolutely flooded with light and there's a HUGE ROOF TERRACE with a great view over the East, loads of sky and a dining table for 8. There are two excellent bathrooms, each with a shower, and a little chill out zone on the mezzanine.
Our MODERN/RETRO FURNITURE is fun and colourful and has been merged from our old London and Amsterdam homes, and added to with some snazzy bits from Berlin. We absolutely LOVE this city. Come and join us!
You get a nice double room with bed, wardrobe and a few things to make it home. Plus a little desk for those essential laptop moments. All towels and bedding supplied.
We have two bedrooms available (check our other listings for the second room) so if you want to come in a group of up to 4 people, we have the space.
BREAKFAST: You can just wake up when you want, and take what you want from the stock of juices, bread, cereals and tasty German charcuterie. OR, you might get lucky and get one of Patrik's fabulous cooked breakfasts. YUM!
ABOUT US: we're a sociable and open minded couple. We enjoy travelling, and being at home. We love walking, discovering and (possibly more than anything), EATING! Paul is a freelance writer and Patrik studies and teaches Classics. Patrik is forever COOKING up a storm and loves to make FOOD for loads of people. Join us for dinner if you fancy it, or just do your own thing. You can have as much privacy or interaction as you want.
Awesome place, great hosts. Perfect for a city-trip to Berlin.
I didn't get to met Paul and Patrick, because they were gone for the weekend. Patrick gave me all the info I needed to find the apartment which was in perfect condition. Was warm and cosy, though I didn't really get to hang out much, because I was always roaming around Berlin. Would have liked to meet both. Maybe next time. I can recommend Paul and Patrick's apartment! And if you don't speak German, everything is written down in English as well and both hosts speak English.
Amazing appartment and location!
This week-end in Berlin was a great experience! We came with no idea of what to do and no expectation of Berlin and it was a real pleasure to discover this amazing city, thanks to Patrick's advices. He sent us in extraordinary places, sometimes unknown by berliners themselves.
Thanks to Patrick and Paul for their help, even when we were in big trouble... They know what we're talking about... ;)
We will come back for sure to spend more time in that city!
My stay in Berlin with Paul and Patrik was unforgettable. They are generous and gracious hosts and their apartment is nothing short of spectacular. With only three nights in Berlin, they helped me make the most of my short time with fantastic tips and suggestions. I was also lucky enough to spend time around the city with the both of them. I left Berlin with an amazing experience, a new found love for the city, and two great friends. I wouldn't have done this trip any other way. I can't wait to come back!
Beautiful apartment and comfortable room.
I had a short and busy stay but the hosts were accommodating, flexible and friendly. Paul and Patrik go the extra mile to ensure guests have an enjoyable experience.
Convenient location for many areas I was interested in seeing.
Patrik was a fantastic host, I made a late booking the night before, but Patrik helped me, and even at the last minute was extremely helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Patrik spent time explaining to me all the neighbourhoods, and what to see and do. The house is lovely, the room very comfortable and private, a very nice and clean bathroom, and all in a lovely location close to three stations and for me, and nice walk to the surrounding areas. I recommend staying here very highly and will not hesitate to stay there again!
Very nice apartment, good location, lovely people.
Leider haben wir Paul und Patrick nicht persönlich kennengelernt, wurden aber sehr nett von Ilse und Mark aus Holland empfangen. Sie haben die Gastgeber gut vertreten und es uns sehr einfach gemacht sich wohlzufühlen. Wir haben gemeinsam gefrühstückt, unseren Wein geteilt, uns mehrsprachig unterhalten und dabei viel gelacht. Die Wohnung ist super schön, die Betten waren bezogen und alles war sehr sauber. Die Dachterrasse ist ein Traum - auch für Nichtraucher. Zur U-Bahn ist es nicht weit, aber es macht auch viel Spaß das nahe Simon-Dach-Viertel zu erkunden. Hier gibt es Kneipen, Cafés, Restaurants und Geschäfte für jeden Geschmack. Meine Eltern waren ganz neidisch auf unsere tolle Unterkunft - auch wegen Ilse und Mark und wollen beim nächsten Mal selbst dort übernachten.
We were hardly there! Our stay was so short & rushed that I can't give a most accurate review. From the little we did see of the guys they were more than helpful & interesting to chat to. Patrik gave us some great sightseeing tips & introduced us to an indispensable app that we used all the time! Pity we missed out on the maze :( it came highly recommended! Thanks for the cool place to crash :)
