Interaction with Guests

We´re available for any queries prior to and during your stay.

The Neighborhood

The 'Kollwitzkiez' is one of the hippest districts Berlin has to offer. The streets in our neighborhood have the charm of Parisian boulevards and encompass a wide range of trendy bistros, bars, cafes, restaurants, and grocery stores. There are also other mod cons - pharmacy, bank, coffee shops, ATMs, post office, boutique stores, live music, cinemas etc - - all within easy walking distance (no more than 15 mins). Anything else you desire should be with a 20 minute radius if you take public transport.

Getting around

Tram M2: 1 minute walk
Subway U2: 5 minutes walk

Both will get you to Alexanderplatz in 5 minutes. Alexanderplatz is the closest hub and from here you have the S-Bahn, U-Bahn, Metro (tram) and Bus network to get you to where ever you wish to go.

Other Things to Note

Note: 5% (netto) city tax is paid on arrival. Any private host, vacation rental, hostel, hotel etc. in Berlin is expected to pay the tax on top of the price you pay on airbnb since January 2014, unfortunately we cannot get around that. For more information please refer to the federal state of Berlin website.

  • It was a very pleasant stay at Claudia's apartment in Berlin! When we first arrived, she gave us a tour of her place and even gave us some recommendations of good food around the area. The room we stayed in was very spacious and exactly like how you see in the photos. Her son's very friendly and adorable too! Thanks Claudia for the lovely stay in Berlin, we had alot of fun there!:)

  • Our hosts at the Berlin Retro Room were very kind and generous. The room was very comfortable: it is large and includes a window onto a courtyard from which you may hear children playing and birds singing when you awake. The best aspect of this place was its location in a great neighborhood which the hosts offer great advice about. If you are interested in a stay with kind and knowledgeable people in an authentic Berlin neighborhood, you should consider Berlin Retro Room.

  • My husband and I had an absolutely comfortable stay. Claudia and Lucas were very welcoming and helpful in our times of need. Little Albrecht was a bundle of joy and not at all intrusive. Would be a comfortable stay for anyone wanting to relax

  • Freundliche Gastgeber, sehr angenehm und zuvorkommend. Hervorragender Ablauf, gute Kommunikation. Das Zimmer ist groß, geräumig und sauber. Von der Wohnung aus ist man in 2 Haltestellen am U-Bahnhof Alexanderplatz und kann sein Berlin-Sightseeing starten.

  • Der Retro Room ist ein sehr schönes Zimmer in der Metzer Strasse am Prenzlauer Berg. Die Metzer Strasse ist ein ruhiger und wunderschöner Boulevard, da in deren Mitte einmal ein Strassenbahn verlief und dieser jetzt in einen wunderschönen Grünstreifen verwandelt ist. Das Zimmer ist sauber, schön eingerichtet und ruhig. Bad und Küche darf man mitbenutzen, auch hier alles bestens. Die Gastgeber sind wirklich klasse. Ich kann das Zimmer in jeder Hinsicht empfehlen.
