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. And if you take just one room, you might make friends with our other guests. It's happened many times.
BREAKFAST: You can just wake up when you want, and take what you want from the stock of juices, bread, preserves, cereals and tasty German charcuterie. Help yourself to tea and coffee whenever you like.
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 works from home as a freelance writer and Patrik studies Classics at the Humbolt University. We're generally up for a chat or giving you some advice, and you can have as much privacy or interaction as you want.
We're pretty easy going, but here are the few rules we have:
1) Enjoy your stay and feel free to ask any questions
2) Smoke on the roof terrace, not secretly in your room with the door closed. We want the room to be welcoming to everyone whether they smoke or not, which means it needs to smell fresh.
3) Wash up after yourself and put any dirties in the dishwasher at night so the kitchen is clear for everyone in the morning
4) Turn off lights behind you.
5) Respect our neighbours - and us - as you would have us respect you :-)
It was nice experience to be guests of Paul & Patrik. Everything was relaxed, we have felt welcomed like in old friend's flat. There are no negation at all. Perfect terrace, arrangement, flat location... Next time in Berlin sure choice.
Love these guys! This was my first private room airbnb experience and they made me feel very welcome immediately. Communication was great and we even had an awesome German lunch the first day. The guys felt like old friends more than hosts.
The apartment is well located and the bed is comfy. I have no complaints about this place and would recommend it for sure!
This was without question the best Airbnb experience I've ever had. Though we never met Paul and Patrik, their flatmate Biunca was super nice, friendly and very helpful. The flat is amazing and tastefully decorated. It was also quiet and we had plenty of privacy. They have a black book of their local recommendations for dining and activities which is just great and exceeds expectations. They even have local beer in the fridge for €1.50! The location suited our purposes perfectly. We could not have asked for more.
It was great staying at Paul and Patrik's place. The place was really beautiful and had everything we need. Even though we did not meet them in person, they were really quick to reply to our queries.
Unfortunately didn't meet Paul and Patrik as they were away, or see Biunca much because she wasn't feeling well. Still the flat is amazing, bright and clean, and we had lovely breakfasts on the sunny balcony. Beers for purchase in the fridge was a great idea! Lots of local information is provided and the recommended restaurants we went to were all fantastic. Would love to stay again.
One of the best air bnb's we have stayed at! Paul & Patrik were away so unfortunately didn't get to meet them, but their substitute Biunca was lovely & really helpful. They provide a book detailing their personal favorite sights to see and restaurants to eat at & general tips re public transport etc. Would highly recommend staying here!
Top-notch place. There was a bit of a pain point with a key not being left in the place which was expected which did cause some initial frustrations, however after getting in touch with Biunca this was resolved and Paul & Patrick gave a discount for my troubles.
Other than that this was the absolute best place I've stayed in with Airbnb. The place is kept very clean and tidy, Biunca despite being from Cronulla is a total champ and was very helpful. They provided a folder with a list of tips for tours to check out and places to see and food to eat. I went and did a bunch of the suggested things and had a great time in Berlin.
The elevator was busted when I was there which was a bit of a bummer - honestly other than the key and the elevator everything was perfect.

I am a very happy and enthusiastic Ancient Greek and Latin student and teacher. I've been living together with my boyfriend Paul for about a year now and at the end of July 2012 we moved over to Berlin.
I am originally half German and half Dutch and Paul is native English. So our house is quite international. :-) We love to cook and make some very delicious meals. We definitely want you to try some of them.
We can help you finding your way in Berlin and we can suggest nice things to do. Our main goal is to make you feel as if you are home.
So what are you still waiting for? Feel free to accompany us and have an unforgettable trip to Berlin. :-)
