About This Listing
We offer a quiet, big, bright, and fully furnished room in a beautiful apartment in the heart of Kreuzkölln area, just 5 minutes walking from Kottbusser Tor, and right next to the wonderful Maybachufer canal.
The room we offer is 28m2, it can accommodate comfortably up to 3 guests and is fully furnished with a queen-size bed, a double closet, a writing desk, and a Ikea "Beddinge" sofa bed.
The room is very bright and quiet, indeed has a big window opening on a nice internal courtyard with a beautiful apple tree.
We'll provide clean sheets and towels for every guest, radiator heating, and a super-fast WIFI internet connection (no file-sharing allowed)
Our 106m2 flat is located in a beautifully renovated building in a quiet street in the heart of Kreuzkölln, one of the most interesting areas in Berlin.
It has a fully equipped kitchen at guests' disposal, with dishwasher, microwave, washing-machine (due to abuse in the past we charge 5€ to use it), stove, and a food processor.
The bathroom is spacious and is equipped with a bathtub, so in case you feel like it just add the bubbles :)
We live in two other rooms, in case you need anything usually there's always somebody around to ask to.
Kreuzkölln is one of the most sought-after areas in Berlin, and our flat is right in the center of it. There aren't many better locations in the city if you're interested in culture, arts, night life, and food! The flat is located just by the wonderful Maybachufer and Landwerkanal, where twice a week the famous and colorful Turkish market takes place.
In less than 10 minutes walking you can reach Kottbusser Tor (the heart of Kreuzberg SO36), Hermannplatz, the trendy Weserstraße (lots of bars, clubs, restaurants there), and plenty of shops, cinemas, supermarkets, restaurants, bars and amenities.
The flat is located less than 100m away from U8 Metro Station, with which you can reach in less than 10 minutes Alexanderplatz, and many of the interesting places in town. The night bus stop is also very close, so you will never have a hard time coming back home.
WHO ARE WE:
We are a couple in our 30s, we know and love Berlin and made it our home since years now. We can help you spot some interesting places and give you some advice on how to enjoy the city in case you're here for tourism, or guarantee a quiet and well connected place to stay if you're here for a work trip.
Berlin has much to offer, so if you're looking for a cozy and quiet room in one of Berlin's trendiest neighborhoods look no further!
We do our best to offer a nice and quiet household experience to our guests but we're not professional hosts, this is a private house so don't expect the treatment that you would be granted in a hotel. We're not getting rich out of Airbnb, we just raise a bit of extra money for housekeeping, meet new interesting people from all over, and generally have fun.
Please make sure to contact anybody in the house if anything is not of your liking or makes you feel uncomfortable and we will try to solve whatever issue as best as we can, in exchange we ask you to behave the same way you would when hosted by a friend or relative, basically use common sense, things as such:
keep noises down to an acceptable level after 10 pm
try to leave common areas as you've found it after you use it
don't bring stoned people in for an early morning afterparty and thrash the house, etc
We're pretty relaxed regarding hosting, we too come home late at night or clean up the kitchen the day after having dinner *on occasions* but this is not common practice, so please bear with us if you're bothered by this and/or try to be respectful if you're a late night messy freak - and everything will be fine and fun.
Thanks and enjoy your stay!
Tutto perfetto! Bella stanza e ottima accoglienza. Nel cuore della Berlino notturna la consiglio caldamente!
Grazie ancora ad Elisa e Franz per tutto!
Place was in a perfect location and the room was nice. My only complaint is it gets very cold in the room due to the fact the thermostat is placed in the other bedroom so if their room is comfortable temperature, then the heating gets cut off. This probably wont be an issue during the summer but was very uncomfortable in the middle of April when it gets very cold at night.
The room was accurately depicted in the pictures provided and the neighbourhood was easily accessed via public transport. Both of our hosts were welcoming and made sure that we knew where everything was in the house. They made themselves available if we had any questions as well.
Nice location, nice room, friendly and easy going hosts.
Elisa and Franz were very friendly and welcoming and always willing to help with a question about the accommodation or the neighbourhood. They're busy people and out a lot, so there is a lot of privacy, but they are always happy to have a chat and a drink if they're around, or leave you to your own devices if you prefer. The room is large and comfortable and well-located very close to public transport, the local markets and all Kreuzberg (and Berlin) has to offer. Thanks for a great stay :)
Elisa and Franz were both nice, and the location is definitely great--right next to both the U and the canal (restaurants / bars etc). When I was there, the room was cold due to the weather outside (below 0 C / 32 F every night) and due to the fact that the heating unit didn't always turn on, but other than that, the room is as pictured.

Franz is a freelance musician and producer, he worked on many international records, toured all Europe and beyond, and has a fetish for french fries.
Excellent for breakfast with a sight on the canal. Very nice and romantic. At night you can also eat very good burgers.
This is a very popular Turkish food market held every tuesday and friday. On saturdays it turns in some sort of flea market. Very colorful and typical.
Supermarket with pretty much everything, including the pfund return machine.
Super cheap and overall decent pizza: when you're hungry in a hurry and want some quick and cheap fix. A bonus is that they have an original "Carpigiani" italian ice cream machine.
Whenever you need to grab something to ead, cheap and quick this is a nice option. Vietnamese cuisine.
Great german style pub with nice all-round music. It's open 24/7.
One of the best Pizza in town.
