Our flat consists of a living room, a big room, a smaller bedroom, a bathroom with a bath tub and a kitchen with a washing machine and a dishwasher. It is situated in Friedrichshain, one of the coolest areas in Berlin.
Very central, sunny and good communicated with Sbahn, tram and bus. Amazing view over Friedrichshain, top floor and very quite. Alt bau, recently renovated, super new.
We are renting the smaller room for a maximum period of two weeks.
When we are away we rent also the bigger room.
The area is quite but still very close to Simon Dach Strasse, one of the busiest streets in Berlin with loads of cafes, restaurants, shops etc.
Just a few meters from our flat you can find bakeries, late night shops, bars, pizzerias, restaurants.
You can move very easily, as it is very good connected with Sbahn and tram right round the corner. The tram runs 24/7, so there is always a way to get to our flat easily.
The room Dina & Max are offering is a big room with a nice view on a playground an buildings in the middle of Friedrichshain. Everything we could hope for was there for us to use. A bath, a kitchen, big living room and a fine bed. Thanks to the large amount of e-mails we sent to eachother, everything was clear and well prepared as soon as we arrived. We can recommend this room to everyone! Even tho we haven't seen Dina & Max when we were in their house, it felt like home.
Dina and Max were lovely hosts, offering us advice on where to go over NYE and responding promptly to all of our questions. The apartment is very spacious and clean, much like in photos. We stayed in the main bedroom, and found the bed is a little uncomfortable, but bearable.
We had a bit of trouble with the heating while we were there, and had to leave early due to no hot water and heating in the apartment during our stay. Unfortunately, Dina and Max were away over this time, so could not come over to help, however helped as best as they could to get it sorted, and got their friend to come over and try to fix it, but he couldn't. I believe upon their arrival home they will get it fixed for the next tenants, so it shouldn't be an issue :)
We were in Tunisia for two weeks and rented both our bedroom and the second bedroom for a few days only once each, to make sure that everything will be clean and in place for the guests. We extra chose the people for the second bedroom to be Australians as well, so it would be more likely that they would all get along and have fun together. It is important for us that everybody is happy and that there are good vibes in our flat.
Unfortunately the other two guys, who arrived first, managed to block the heating, since instead of turning up the temperature, they pressed all the other buttons. This resulted in heating and water problems. Since we were away, all I could do is try to be online every day as many times as possible to try to help the guys out. In the end when I saw that there is nothing I can do and neither my friend who went to help them out, I offered them to leave the flat earlier and to reimburse them, which also happened. When we got back we called the technician, who said that we should only adjust the temperature and don't push any other buttons and fixed the problem. We have been living in this flat for 2,5 years and never ever experienced any problems, since everything in the flat is brand new.
Apart from that I have to note that the bed that Cherise found uncomfortable is the bed we sleep in and is a normal bed, that I have had for 5 years now.
In general we liked the guys from our email communication, they were very polite, nice and seemed very interesting, so we were even sorry to be gone and not get to meet them.
The room was very clean and nice, exactly as in the picture. I had a very pleasant experience. The apartment is about 15 minutes walking distance from the nearest S-bahn. I asked many questions before going there and all of them were answered right away. I had a minor problem when I went to get the keys as planned, but Dina answered me right away and was super nice the whole time. I would recommend this apartment to other people and plan on staying in it again in the future. (-:
We stayed during New Years Eve and had a great time at Dina and Max place! The flat is sunny, big, very clean and well communicated.
We didnt get to know personally but communicated with them via sms / email and they were very friendly and helpful.
We definitely recommend this place.
Thanks a lot!
Armando and Isabel
Dina and Max's place is awesome, close to some great bars and restaurants and easy to navigate into central Berlin. I didn't get to meet Dina but we communicated via email and she was very helpful, providing detailed directions and responding promptly. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.
The flat of Max and Dina is located in the big old house in the western part of the town. The room is very nice.
All was good. Thanks!
Apartment was great, Dina was easily reachable by e-mail even when she was in New York. The previous guest gave us keys, and so we did when we left. We would like to have met the hosts, cause it obviously is part of why we choose the AirBNB experience, to get in touch with locals and such, but in the other hand, we had a nice flat for ourselves for 3 nights for a very good price! Thanks Dina, hope we meet some day!
Dina+Max's apartment is spatious (big rooms and really tall ceilings), clean, in a quiet neighborhood, and has all the amenities a traveller needs. Lots of natural light via all the windows (top-floor view!) and brightened further by the warm-coloured wood floors. It's close to transit - 10m walk to the S-Bahn and Metro - and a big park (Volkspark Friedrichshain) is a similar distance.
I enjoyed my stay here, and only regret not getting to spend more time with my awesome hosts! They were very understanding of my arriving considerably later than expected due to getting lost, and even arranged for me to sleep in their living room for the first night for free when my desired dates ended up conflicting with the stay of another guest.
