Of all the Berliner districts, Mitte definitely has the most tourist attractions. The list of sights and historical buildings and squares, is endless. The Brandenburg Gate, a landmark both before and after reunification , is the most famous monument in Berlin. From here the magnificent boulevard Unter den Linden runs almost all the way to Alexanderplatz with its Television Tower and World Time Clock. On the way you will be passing the Humboldt University, the oldest university in Berlin, Staatsoper (the Operahouse), Museumsinsel (the Museum Island) and the site of the future Stadtschloss (town castle).
The Museumsinsel (Museum Island) is a World Heritage site. It is a treasure-trove of famous museums. Friedrichstrasse is today a commercial shopping boulevard with flagship stores and grand shopping centres like Galerie Lafayette, Quartier Latin and various international couture boutiques. The street leads to Checkpoint Charlie, the main gateway for the Allied forces, non-Germans and diplomats before the wall came down - and then leads on further to Oranienburger Strasse.
This former Jewish quarter is a very popular district for going out and very famous for its nightlife and hip young crowd. Nearby you will find the Neue Synagoge and the Hackesche Höfe. Gendarmenmarkt, which is said to be one of the most beautiful squares in Europe, is not far away. Here you will find buildings like the Schauspielhaus as well as the German and French Cathedrals.
Berlin has got an extensive public transport network. Due to the flat’s central location, a lot of visitors leave their cars parked or don't even come to town by car at all.

Martin was very prompt on a cold quiet day after Christmas and showed us around quickly and thoroughly. The location was outstanding and very close to transit, museums and more restaurants than we had time to try.
This apartment is really neat and perfectly located in the lovely district of Mitte: just a few steps away from a subway station, trendy shops and nice restaurants.
Martin was a great host, always quick to answer my questions and remained available as my flight was delayed. That was a nice Airbnb experience.
Tolle Wohnung in toller Lage. Wenn das mit dem Duschvorhang noch klappt ist alles perfekt.
Martin is a wonderful host, professional and very accomodating. The instructions and communication prior to arrival where very detailed, thorough and easy to follow.
The apartment is extremely well located with many restaurants, cafes, bakeries and shops around the area. Also very easy to get around with public transport system from the apartment and around the city.
The space is great, clean and has all the comforts necessary for a long weekend stay in Berlin. Thank you so much Martin, would definitely consider staying in one of your apartments again when in the city.
Die Beschreibung der Wohnung war zutreffend und die Nachbarschaft ideal zum Einkaufen, Essen gehen, Bummeln. Perfekt!
Flat is well-located in the Mitte. Close to some great restaurants and bars (Lokal, Vino e Libri, New Odessa, Muret la Barba). Easy access to public transportation and many of the sights of old Berlin.
We had a bit of a challenge with connecting for access to the flat but that was easily dealt with once we made contact with Martin.
The flat itself is bright and sunny. Very simply furnished as shown in the pictures. It would benefit from a shower curtain and a "deep cleaning" as it is showing signs of wear. We were a bit disappointed that there was moldy coffee grinds left in the coffee maker and a good deal of long hair in the bathroom and on the floors but, both were easily rectified.
One of the reasons we selected this property was that it advertised a washing machine and we were spending two more weeks traveling so planned to do laundry here. Unfortunately, the washer was not functioning and, when we reached out to Martin he simply stopped responding to us. I've owned vacation rentals and can't imagine not tending to the needs of my guests so have to give a 3-star rating based on our experience. We ended up spending a morning in the local laundromat which was not part of our vacation plan.

First of all, the most important thing :-)
Normally you will get an answer for every inquiry within the same day!
For whom is my service intended?
For everyone! My guests are very mixed – the businessman from New York feels as comfortable here as the young family from a small town. I welcome the culturally interested, those who come here to Berlin events like the Berlinale or Fashion Week, music lovers and clubbers, and those who just want a relaxing holiday. Everyone is welcome, from singles to extended families.
What’s my aim?
To offer friendly, comprehensive and straightforward service at moderate prices – no ifs and buts!
Who am I?
The idea of an unconventional apartment service was born in the sunny April of 2003 over a glass of wine, cheese and a baguette. The accommodation service was set up, and what was initially a bit of fun and a second job quickly grew into a profession and a passion. Add two staff members, three temporary assistants and a trainee – and you get an ambitious crew that aims to grow even further!
Where am I located?
The firm’s office is located in the legendary suburb of Prenzlauer Berg, a central location in the former east of the city. The ‘wild’ years that followed the fall of the Wall are past, but life here is still lively and upbeat. The apartments and rooms are in central locations of Berlin, especially in the West in a central location close to Kurfürstendamm (Nollendorfplatz), and also in the Eastern centre like Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt.
