The Space

**The apartment / The loft**

You will be staying in a 130 m² sized loft together with your hosts. The loft is in a lovingly restored factory on the 5th floor, underneath the roof (with lift). From here you have a breathtaking view over the rooftops of Berlin. You are welcome to share the use of the kitchen and the living room with us. Smoking is only permitted on the terrace.

** Situation **

The famous Simon-Dach-Strasse is a 5 minute walk away and is the mile in Friedrichshain for bar lovers, artists and tourists. The street lies in the heart of Berlin Friedrichshain and is famous for its charm. The homely and liberal atmosphere of this area comes from the variety of night-life, and makes this area especially inviting. Public transportation goes 24hours only 3 mins walk from our door.

**Your room**

…is about 15 m² in size and you have it for yourself only. You sleep on a 200 x 150 bed. You have your own south-facing terrace with view over the courtyard, the rooftops and to the former Narva-Gebäude (buildings near Oberbaumbrücke).

Wireless internet (WiFi) or LAN can be used without a charge. Use of the washing machine are also available.

** The bathroom **

You share the modern bathroom with your hosts. It has rain-shower, sink, underfloor heating, skylight, toilet and bidet.

** Breakfast **

A small self-serve breakfast (cereal, milk, fruit, coffee, tea, cocoa, toast, butter, various jams) is included in the price.

Of course you can buy more and other food near by yourself and use the kitchen for cooking.

** Your hosts **

… are widely travelled, know Berlin inside-out.They look forward to having amiable guests and will of course, try to make your visit as enjoyable as possible. They both are working fulltime.

They speak German, English and some Spanish, Italian and Russian.

** Cat allergy? **

The hosts have now and then a cat from a shelter. The cat is not allowed to be in your room.

** Parking spaces **

Parking spaces are available for free on the street. The area is relatively quiet, but sometimes (especially nights), you have to search for a parking space. For those not wanting to park on the street, a parking space in the garage can be rented for 7 euros per night (prenote nessesary).

At arrival we will ask you for an ID or passport and a deposit of 100 Euro in cash. Refund of the deposit at your departure (for bookings made after the 06 of March the deposit is via airbnb)

  • We had a wonderbar 3 days in Berlin. Steffen and Gretta were kind and lovely to us. Very kind to my daughter.

    The room was gorgeous, very trendy and arty. Breakfast was lovely.

    No problems and no real advice on how to improve,

    If we come to Berlin again this will be our no 1 choice!!

    Area was lovely close to restaurants and shops we spent ages on the second hand shop!!

    No concerns atall!!

  • Die Tage in Berlin bei Gritta waren super. Wir haben viele Tipps bzgl. Shoppingmöglichkeiten u.ä. erhalten die super waren und in keinem Reiseführer zu finden sind :)
    Außerdem haben wir uns sehr wohl im Loft gefühlt. Auch das gemeinsame Frühstück war top:)))
    Falls wir noch einmal nach Berlin fahren sollten, werden wir auf jeden Fall wieder die Unterkunft bei Gritta und Steffen in Anspruch nehmen ;)

    Response from Steffen:

    Aber gern! Danke für das kleine Abschiedsgeschenk. Wir haben uns darüber sehr gefreut!

  • Steffen and Gritta were wonderfull hosts for our 3-day stay in Berlin. The room was nice, clean and is located perfectly (quiet street, S-bahn and plenty of restaurants and pubs aroubnd the corner). They provided very good information of were to go - places we didn't find in the travel guide - which was highly appreciated. We enjoyed our weekend in Berlin very much!

  • Steffen und Gritta haben eine wunderschöne Wohnung mit idealer Lage in Friedrichshain. Zimmer und Bad waren in einem einwandfreien Zustand und dank der herzlichen Gastgeber haben wir uns schnell wie zu Hause gefühlt - nicht zuletzt wegen des umfangreichen Frühstücks am Sonntag morgen! Wir kommen gerne wieder :)

  • Nuestra estancia en casa de Steffen y Gritta fue estupenda, todo fue perfecto, tanto el apartamento como la hospitalidad de los anfitriones responde sobradamente a las expectativas, yo diría que incluso las supera. El hecho de que incluyan desayuno viene muy bien para despreocuparse de ir a hacer compra y todo eso, pero es que una mañana incluso nos estaban esperando para desayunar juntos con un desayuno espectacular! Aunque el baño es compartido, no se nota en absoluto, está impecable y no coincidimos con ellos en él ni una sola vez. Si a alguien le echa para atrás el que tengan gato, no le vimos el pelo en ningún momento (literalmente, no sólo no apareció porque es muy tímido, sino que no había pelos, olores ni señales de él en ninguna parte de la zona en la que se mueven los huéspedes). El piso es precioso, cómodo y súper bien ubicado. El precio está muy bien, y ellos son encantadores, ¿qué más se puede pedir?

  • We spent 3 nights at Gritta & Steffens place. The location was awesome; especially with the ubahn being so close to the flat. The room itself was very light and big enough for the two of us. The apartment was very cosy with nice furniture and an open kitchen. We loved that we could come and go as we pleased and that we could feel at home and not like we were invading someone elses apartment.
    Gritta and Steffen were extremly nice! We recieved information about Berlins best locations and how to get to and from the airport.
    We could also have breakfast whenever we wanted: it consisted of coffee/tee/hot choclate, cereal, bread/toast with spread, etc. The hosts we're also perfektly fine with us buying our own stuff for the fridge.
    We really enjoyed staying there and would definatly come back!

  • I spent a single night at Steffen and Gritta's flat. Their response was prompt, and they followed up efficiently with customized guidelines on how to get to their place.
    The stay was pleasant. The room was cozy, spacious, clean light-filled, thanks to a large window leading to a roomy terrace from where to contemplate the skyline of Berlin. The bed was comfortable. During the night, the window could be partially covered by automatic blinders. The bathroom was also private and located right next to the room. It was clean and very spacious, equipped with a toilet, bidet and shower.
    The breakfast was included in the price, and was composed of a variety of food such as cereal, toasts, different kinds of hand-made jams or milk.
    Just after showing the flat, Gritta gave a map of Berlin and told about interesting places to visit in the city.
    Despite being there for such a short time, talking to Gritta was always interesting and rewarding.
    I definitely recommend this place to anyone that wants to stay in Berlin either to explore the city non-stop - thanks to Gritta's indications - or to spend some memorable time in a more relaxed fashion, thanks to the hospitality of Gritta and Steffen.

  • Über den Dächern Berlins ließ es sich wunderbar wohnen. Mit herrlichem Ausblick auf die Stadt und einem eigenen Balkon vom gemütlichen Zimmer aus konnte ich die Seele so richtig baumeln lassen !! Ich wurde sehr liebevoll betreut und bewirtet mit frischem Bio Obst und selbstgemachtem Holundersaft !!! Ich komme sehr gern wieder und kann diese erstklassige Unterkunft für jede(n) weiterempfehlen !

    November 2013
  • We spent two wonderful weeks at Gritta and Steffen's.
    They are very warm, welcoming and helpful.
    The loft is beautiful. Very clean, modern and quiet.
    Just a few minutes walk from the U bahn station.
    This is probably the best B&B in Berlin.
    Thank you Gritta and Steffen!

Berlin ist unsere Traumstadt - auch wenn sie dreckig und laut ist. Es macht einfach Spaß hier zu leben, weil die Stadt so vielseitig ist, tolle Ausgehmöglichkeiten hat, aber gleichzeitig so wunderbar grün ist und man viele unterschiedliche interessante Menschen kennenlernen kann. Wir sind beide berufstätig, arbeiten gern und viel. Wir freuen uns darauf mit dir als Gast ein Stück Urlaubsgefühl ins Haus zu holen. Ihr wollt uns aus der Reserve locken? Fragt mich laufen zu gehen und meine Frau lockt man mit einer Frisbeescheibe in den Park. :)) ------------ Berlin is our dream city - even if it is dirty and noisy. It is fun to live here because the city is so versatile, great nightlife, but has at the same time is so wonderfully green and you can meet so many different interesting people. We both work fulltime, almost workaholics. We look forward to you as a guest to bring a piece of holiday feeling into hour home. you want to see us happy? Ask me to go running and my wife are lured with a Frisbee in the park. :))
