This accomodation is GREAT! Your room has plenty of SPACE (26m2 and a ceiling of 3,90m!), plenty of LIGHT (windows span > 3 m), is COMFORTABLE (all furnitures and renovations from this year 2012), pretty QUIET (backstreet) and STRATEGICALLY WELL LOCATED to get around and explore Berlin (the Potsdamer Platz, Ku’damm, Tiergarten or the Brandenburger Gate are all in the range of a 5 – 10 min. bike-ride. The next SUBWAY (U-Bahn) station is just 450 metres away and their FOUR lines (U1,U2,U3,U4) - and the TWO lines of the next S-Bahn station (S1, S2 in 1 km) - let you reach most destinations in Berlin rapidly and many even without having to change the line.) The room is part of a NEWLY RENOVATED 2-Room apartment (>70 m2) in the – so called – BELLE ETAGE of a HISTORICAL PRE-WWI BUILDING. The other room is separated by two corridors and the newly renovated BATHROOM (bath-tub & washing-maschine) as well as the equipped KITCHEN - big enough to seat four people - is at your disposal. The fridge and the cupboard will provide all that is needed for a decent breakfast. The apartment has NO TV (you shouldn’t waste your time on TV anyhow while you are living in the centre of eventful Berlin) but WiFi, plenty of books and a cozy atmosphere. From the apartment it is just 250 m to the Winterfeldtplatz, which is well known in Berlin for its Wednesday and Saturday market and its variety of ethnic restaurants in its vicinity. The place is situated in the very north of Schöneberg, immediately adjacent to the districts MITTE, KREUZBERG & CHARLOTTENBURG - all just a few streets away. FREE PARKING AVAILABLE in the street and it is generally not difficult to find a parking lot (not rarely right in front of the door, mostly within a 100-200 m radius). You can also use BOOKS, GUIDES or MAPS and if you need BIKES or want some RECOMMENDATIONS where to go and how to get around or have other questions I might be able and are happy to help you.
FLAT SHARED or ALL BY YOURSELF?
This offer is based on a shared flat. I will be your flat mate.
So you will have the room described above all to yourself which I will not enter during your stay but we would have to share the bath and the kitchen - at least the times we both are there. So if you like sharing a flat and appreciate to have somebody living close by who knows his way around Berlin and occacional encounters in corridor or sitting down for a drink in the kitchen than I guess that will be good news and might make your stay in this town more interesting.
IF YOU PREFER to have the flat to yourself for certain times that could be arranged.
IF YOU PREFER to have the whole flat to yourself without me just doing the check-in and check-out, see my other offer concerning the rent of the whole flat.
I like airbnb because it enables - in a very attractive and convenient way through all the pictures, descriptions, references,(website hidden)telephone & Co-verifications and personal correspondence to get an idea about the housing situation and the guest. Therefore I published openly many information about the flat and myself so that you connect the dots and get an accurate picture what to expect. Alike I appreciate similar transparency and have always made positive experience this way. Such being the case I favour these inquiries over anonymous ones without pictures, descriptions, references, verifications or informative correspondence.
Thomas is amazing and very forthcoming, excellent host. The room is huge, could easily house entire family (with an additional bed). :)
Location-wise, it's awesome, 3-4 mins away from U-bahn stations or various bus routes - for example those leading to Reichstag, Brandenburg Gate etc. If you like to walk, as I do, this is 20-25min to lovely west city center (KaDeWe and other shops).
Totally recommended as a place to stay.
Second time at Thomas' appartement and again: Warm welcome, everything was super clean, the bed comfortable and the atmosphere relaxed. Thomas always has a minute (or hours:-) for his guests and helps in finding the right bus or tram or whatever... I was also lucky to spend an evening in a cool greek restaurant with him and his girl-friend, I really enjoyed that. If possible I'll come back in january...
My friend and I flew in from Spain to enjoy a few quick days in Berlin and there are not enough wonderful things we can say about Thomas, his flat, and the proximity to so many great amenities in Berlin. The room has the highest ceilings I´ve ever seen outside of a museum and the space it large enough to fit a party for 20 people comfortably. Even the front door to the building has my friends on (website hidden) gawking. We were going to book our own space, but after reading Thomas´ helpful description and his offer to assist in orienting guests to the city, I quickly realized what an asset he would be for two women out to explore a new city. Thomas was punctual, professional, extremely helpful, interesting and now a lifelong friend for both of us. I would love to post more, but i must run. thank you Thomas!
Tuvimos con mi amigo una estadia muy agradable. El barrio tiene muy lindo ambiente; esta todo a mano; supermercados, cafes, bares para desayunar o cenar. Si bien la estacion de metro (Nollendorfplatz) esta a unos 6 a 7 minutos a pie, lo mas conveniente fue alquilar bicis a la vuelta de la esquina y recorrer una ciudad sorprendente. El apartamento de Thomas es muy amplio, luminoso, bien mantenido y limpio. La habitacion es practicamente un living, tal como se ve en las fotos. Thomas es muy cordial, la comunicacion excelente (con la ventaja de que El habla perfecto espaNol) todo sin complicaciones. Recomendable!
Super Lage, tolle Altbauwohnung, großes Zimmer, alles perfekt sauber und das Beste: Thomas teilt seine Wohnung, als ob man ein echter Mitbewohner wäre. Dazu gehören auch entspannte Gespräche über Berlin, neue Trends etc. Kurzum: Für meine Airbnb-Premiere hätte ich es nicht besser treffen können. Danke.
Due to my schedule, I only was able to chat a couple of hours with Thomas. Too bad I didn't have more time to spend with him, because he's a very nice and interesting person.
He was very accomodating and the room was exactly what I needed for my short trip to Berlin.
Thomas is a great host. Very friendly and very helpful.
The room is very big. Everything is very clean and new and the location is well situated near to metro station, bars and restaurants.
And very important the bed is great!!!
I really recommend to stay at thomas' place
Such a great experience! I couldn't have chosen a better accomodation in a better location and a better host. I stayed at Thoma's for 6 days in September. Booking arrangements with him were clear from first minute and Thomas's prompt answers made me feel confident about this booking at all times (this is very important to me).
I arrived around 20:00H Friday and Thomas welcomed me. The room is exactly as it appears in the photos. BIG, BRIGHT and very clean, with a very tall ceiling. First floor double windowed, you can't hear a noise from the street. I was really concerned about sleeping, but the bed was really comfy. Bathroom and Kitchen with all you may need. All clean and tidy at all times.
The area is super! The street is very quiet, but just a few steps away, around the corner, there many trendy restaurants and cafés, imbiss and späters...You can have lunch or dinner at a very reasonable price. I highly recomend Winterfeldplatz Market on Saturday morning.
Nollendorfplatz tube station is just 5 minutes walking. There you can catch main U-Bahn lines and can reach Postdamer Platz in 5 minutes.
I had such a good time in Berlin... actually, I did not see Thomas much as I used to leave early in the morning and get back late at night... but I can say that in the few minutes I spent with him having a cup of coffee, he is a very polite and charming person, willing to give directions on what to see or do if you don't have a clue (in fact, you can access to a lot of tourism info about Berlin ready in a basket in the room).
I would definetelly come back to Thomas' Place... I WILL! Enjoy you stay there!
Super Gastgeber. Vielen dank!
I really enjoyed the large, light and airy room. Thomas made me feel very welcome and I felt that I was free to enjoy his hospitality. He has a good energy and I enjoyed spending time in his company.
I would definitely recommend this lovely room.
