Public parking is available just in from of the building.
The apartment is located in the trendy scene rising at the border of Kreuzberg and Nord Neukölln (known as Kreuzkölln) in the middle of the multicultural Berlin scene. Few meter away from the charming Landwehrkanal. “Kreuzköln” is now really booming, with bars, cafes, galleries and restaurants opening almost every week.
The attractive Turkish takes place every Tuesday and Friday along the Canal where you can buy fresh vegetables, fish, meat or eating a delicious kebab watching one of the canal-side live jam sessions.
3 Parks are within walking distance (including the former Historical Airport Berlin Tempelhof)
You will find all the public transportation that you need in order to get through Berlin. In 2 minutes walk you can reach the metro station U8, U7 and Bus M29 (which is quite special because it passes by the Jewish Museum, Checkpoint Charlie, the Martin Gropius Bau, Potsdamer Platz, the New National Gallery and the KuDamm).
There are many super markets in the area (Edeka, Lidl, Aldi, Karstadt in Hermanplatz (10 min away) a Bio LPG, many kiosks open all night long and many bakeries (one in the building!) cafes and a variety of international restaurants, for each taste and every budget.
Within walking distance from the apartment there are also design shops, vintage stores, book shops, galleries and boutiques.
The atmosphere in the streets of the multicultural neighborhood is very cozy, friendly and alive, much more real and beautiful of other parts of the city.
Here you can experience the real Berlin nightlife in bars and clubs, all in within walking distance: Weserstraße, Hobrechtstrasse, Ohlauerstrasse, Reichenbergerstrasse and Kottbussertor. And during the summer Club Der Visionäre and Badeschiff are really close.
There are lots of cinemas in the area that screen film in orginal language (many even open air).
I'm sure you'll love it!
Other Things to Note
Information for visitors on Berlin’s hotel occupancy tax
What is being taxed?
As of 1 January 2014, the federal state of Berlin will collect a hotel occupancy tax on all overnight stays in hotels in Berlin. A “hotel” includes any type of short-term, paid accommodation, and the tax is due whether or not the hotel guest actually spends the night in the room.
If a room is reserved, but the guest cancels the reservation before arrival, the occupancy tax is not charged.
Who is liable for the tax?
The hotel is responsible for collecting the tax and passing it on to the federal state of Berlin.
How much is the tax?
The occupancy tax is 5% of the price of the hotel room (without extras, such as meals, items from the minibar, the use of hotel services and facilities not included in the room price, etc.).
AT THE CHECK IN YOU WILL BE ASKED TO PAY THE BERLIN TAX IN CASH .
THE BERLIN TAX IS THE 5% OF THE PRICE YOU PAID WITHOUT THE AIRBNB COMMISSION AND THE FINAL CLEANING. IF YOU ARE COMING TO BERLIN FOR WORKING REASON OR STAYING IN BERLIN FOR MORE THEN 3 WEEKS DON'T HAVE TO PAY IT.
The appt is nice and confortable, and we really enjoy the neighborhood around the canal. Tx Carla!
We spent 4 days at Carla's appartment. We enjoyed it very much. It's a pleasant, clean, comfortable place at the 4th floor (no elevator). Indeed very silent, no city or other noise. We had the place to ourselves, what we appreciated.
It's not far form the U-bahn. There are nice restaurants nearby (Chez Danq, Weincafe). Great place to stay in Berlin.
Nice, clean and quiet flat. Very helpful guest. We had a nice stay. Thank you.
My son and I stay at Carla's' home and it was wonderful. The location was perfect for us. Very close to many restaurants and stores. The apt is very clean and it gave us a mind of peace after a busy day in Berlin. Many thanks! Peter.
Het huis was super -heerlijk rustig en goed (website hidden) een lange reis op een zeer koude dag was het heerlijk om hier binnen te komen. Voor ons was het een ideale en comfortabele uitvalsbasis voor ons verblijf in Berlijn. Beschrijving klopt volledig, duidelijke aanwijzing waar we moesten zijn en we werden vriendelijk opgevangen door de schoonmaakster van Carla. Door de grote open ruimte voelt het huis zeer ruim aan. Aanrader!
This apartment made our stay in Berlin a very pleasant experience. Carla was very responsive to our questions and even checked in with us to make sure everything was okay. We collected our keys around the corner from the apartment.
The listing was quite accurate. The apartment was well heated, had all the amenities needed for a short stay, and was very clean. However, we booked the apartment for two people and were told the second bed was a sofa bed, but as far as I know it was just normal sofa.
Kreuzberg is a very nice neighbourhood, full of trendy cafes and bars and situated along the canal. We definitely felt safe walking around, even in the middle of the night. The area seems to be well served by public transport.
Overall, it was a pleasant experience.
Nice and practical appartment. Quiet, perfect location next to Landwerkkanal. We had a Nice week. Perfect with kids!
