Nice and very spacious apartment, a perfect location for our family including three kids to visit Berlin. Easy going into the center by the metro in front of the apartment, many nice restaurants in the area (also the one downstairs has good German food and friendy staff) and a fresh bakery and supermarket around the corner. Points to improve are the leaking sink in the bathroom and the wobbly table in the kitchen.
Thanks Marleen for this pleasant stay!
The apartment is spacious and looks the way it does in the pictures and having the U bahn nearby. What the pictures don't show and the story doesn't tell is that many details leave a lot to be desired. The rooms have paper thin walls and any word spoken next door can be heard. In our case there were some other tourists next door whose excited talking and music was rather annoying. The bathroom sink leaks water on the floor, the coffee mugs are chipped, the hot water kettle does not work, the arrival information is confusing and finding a car park space after working hours near impossible. While the place ultimately served its purpose, not one we would go to again.
The apartment was perfect -- right by the metro, just like in the pictures, clean and beautiful. The decoration was impeccable, with large windows, and Marleen was a great host. I highly recommend this place!
There was very clean in the house, very good district. Very big and bright rooms (with a small kitchen), interesting old style.
But in the bathroom there was water on floor (leaky faucet); electric kettle didn´t work. The table is staggering in the kitchen.
But we may recomend this flat for a short staying in Berlin. Thank you very much, Marleen, for this pretty weekend!
Die Wohnung war an sich sehr schön. Jedoch war die Kommunikation sehr schlecht. Viele Fragen, die ich vorab klären wollte, konnten nicht geklärt werden, weil Marleen auf einige nicht geantwortet hat.
Ein weiteres Manko war, dass die Wohnung von der nebenliegenden Wohnung nur durch eine Holztür abgetrennt war und da an diesem Wochenende Partygäste nebenan waren, war ein ruhiges Schlafen nicht möglich.
Das Apartment war super einfach zu finden, um den Schlüssel zu erhalten mussten wir nur kurz in ein Restaurant gehen welches sich direkt unterhalb befindet. Das Apartment an sich war sehr schön und hatte genügend Platz, falls wir noch einmal nach Berlin gehen wäre dieses Apartment bestimmt eine Option!

I'm originally from Berlin and recently moved back after having spent a couple of years in London and other places. Thought it's time to return to one of the most vibrant cities in Europe.. Let's see..
