About this listing
My just renovated 62-sq.m. apartment is located on the ground floor in a silent and green courtyard a few steps from the beautiful Landwehrkanal, at the border between Nord Neukölln and Berlin-Kreuzberg.
The apartment has high ceilings, wooden floor, fully equipped kitchen with gas stove, electric oven, boiler, toaster, coffee machine, moka machine, ironing board and iron bathroom with shower, a 180/200 bed and a cozy160/200 bed-sofa, washing machine, dishwasher, and dry machine.
Free Wifi, TV with DVD player, sound system for Ipod. Fresh towels and fresh bed sheets are included. On demand computer, baby cot and bikes (6€ per day).
Final cleaning is 30€. We can offer you an extra cleaning during your stay for, 10€ per hour.
In the apartment you'll find several information about Berlin, maps and guides and if there is anything missing, just let me know and I will try my best to take care of it. I live in the same building.
Public parking is available just in front of the building. The apartment is suitable for disabled travellers.
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 meters 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.
Three 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 original 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.).
Please leave the apartment as you found it.
Don't smoke inside for the respect of the non-smoking guests coming after you
No loud music and parties after 11pm.
If nothing else is agreed, please leave the keys on the table when you check out.
Thank you and enjoy your stay in Berlin!
Our family enjoyed staying at this apartment in a charming setting and in an accessible area of Berlin. There are many lovely cafes and restaurants right on the block, and a simple walk to the train can get you anywhere. It is clean and bright and has all the conveniences of your own home.
The apartment was exactly as described, cleaned and well equipped.
The area is very lively and public transports are at walking distance.
Carla is a very busy person however she always answered to my questions, she even left in the apartment all sort of tips that unfortunately I saw only the last day; what a pity!
The place is really like in the photos - large, spacious, clean and comfortable. The place has the best of Ikea furniture.
The kitchen is convenient with enough cutlery and vessels along with a nice dining space. (We very much liked the breadbox but could not locate a place to buy the same model). The room has also lots of light in the daytime. The extended bathroom is again cute and colourful.
The apartment is also suitably located with quite a few restaurants nearby.
Carla the houseowner, has taken care with little touches of this and that to make it comfortable and convenient to stay in this apartment.
Overall, we enjoyed staying here and would definitely come back.
My parents needed a place to stay for a recent visit to Berlin and they found it lovely. Spacious, nice kitchen, comfortable bed, ground floor (easy for luggage). In a convenient location right by the canal in Kreuzkolln and close to many restaurants and public transport.
Carla was a great host and very easy to get in touch with! And I noticed that the apartment had an infosheet on the wall for local restaurants/bars/grocery stores - good for those new to the city.
The only small gripe my folks had was that the rain shower head could maybe use a cleaning as the pressure wasn't 100%, but there is also a handheld shower head as well that worked perfectly fine.
Would recommend the place to anyone looking for a comfortable and convenient place to stay in the Kreuzberg/Neukolln area.
Sehr schöne Wohnung, genau wie auf den Photos abgebildet, mit Cafes, Kneipen um die Ecke. Sehr ruhig im Hinterhof gelegen. Die Schlüsselübergabe war sehr gut organisiert. Das Gästebett ist etwas unbequem, aber für Kinder okay. In der vorherigen Bewertung wurde der vermeintlich laute Boiler bemängelt. Die Wassertemperatur am Boiler lässt sich jedoch problemlos für die Nacht herunter regeln, so dass dies kein Problem darstellt.
Insgesamt sehr empfehlenswert. Die Wohnung ist ideal für Leute, die gerne ruhig wohnen wollen, jedoch Kneipen/Cafes und Bäckerei im direkten Umfeld nicht missen möchten.
We felt very welcome.
We arrived late and the key waited for us in a bar next to the apartment. the atmosphere in the the neighborhood is amazing,
The apartment is very clean comfortable, it is also very quite.
The best this about the apartment is its location.
We would love to be back.

Das Appartment war sauber und wie abgebildet. Ich würde es allerdings nicht für mehr als zwei Personen empfehlen, da dann jemand in der Küche schlafen muss, was aufgrund des Durchlauferhitzers und eines Boilers?? sehr laut war.
sonst alles gut und unkompliziert.
