The district of Friedrichshain is one of the youngest, most creative and exciting areas of Berlin. Nowhere else can you find so many options everyday for eating, drinking, shopping and dancing. Its attractions include the East Side Gallery, the Oberbaumbrücke, the Anhalt Station, the charming Boxhagener Platz and the popular Simon-Dach straße, with its numerous bars and cafes. Friedrichshain is a really trendy area, dotted with many small, cute and green alleys. If you want to relax during the day in parks, meet nice people and throw yourself into Berlin nightlife, then it is the perfect district for your stay. Friedrichshain is located very centrally, in a short time you can reach Berlin’s major hotspots by public transportation, car or bicycle.
Welcome in the most comfortable flat of Friedrichshain. the flat was freshly renovated. So if it s snowing or raining outside please put your shoes out, when you come into the flat, becuase there is an old wooden floor. In the flat is not allowed to smoke. Respect the neighborhood and feel like at home. Enjoy your berlin stay!
We didn't spend the time we originally planned to at Mario's apartment. We were staying for two months and thought we were getting real beds, rather than sofa beds (both beds are sofa beds) and the kitchen wasn't sufficient for us to cook so we moved to a place more suitable for a long stay.
We also had an issue communicating with Mario when we first arrived - he was overseas without us knowing and we couldn't reach him during an emergency.
It is a great little apartment though in a wonderful area - cafes parks etc. I would recommend for a shorter stay or longer if you're not into cooking or fussy about beds.
Mario was really good when we asked to end our booking early which we appreciated.
Thanks for your feedback Elizabeth! Please dont forget to write that "the emergency" that you mentioned was caused by you (closing yourself outside the flat) and that the same emergency was solved by me and by me assistent in Berlin in less then 10 hours and with my money ( 70 € that I didnt get back from you), even I was not in Berlin.
Sehr unkompliziert, wir konnten am späten Abend ankommen und Mario hat trotzdem noch eine Schlüsselübergabe organisiert, danke dafür! :v) Ansonsten hatten wir die Wohnung für uns und mussten uns um nichts weiter kümmern; bei der Abfahrt konnten wir einfach die Schlüssel auf dem Küchentisch liegen lassen und fertig.
Die Lage der Wohnung ist genial: 5 Fußminuten zur S-Bahn und 7 Minuten bis ins Herz von Friedrichshain - wer feiern gehen will, braucht 5 Minuten bis zum RAW-Gelände.
Jederzeit wieder! :c)
The three of us spent an exquisite six days at Mario's place. During our stay, there hasn't been a single glitch that might have spoiled our experience. The communication with the host was effortless, and with the flexible check-in/out schedule, we were allowed to stay 'till the late afternoon - very classy in my book. The place itself is as advertised and much more. Very neat and clean, with a warm and cozy feel to it. We were never in a situation where we felt like there was something missing, which made the home-away-from-home experience complete. The flat is in a garden building, secluded from the street, and incredibly peaceful and quiet. The location is a story on its own. In my humble opinion, the Ostkreuz area might be the nicest neighborhood in Berlin. A very vivid scene, with numerous hot spots and Mario's place is in the epicenter. We loved our Urban lodge experience, and hopefully we'll come and visit again.
Apartment was great. Everything was clean and just like it's described and there is enough space (2 couples in separate rooms). Neighborhood is perfect (lots of restaurants, bars) and S bahn is 5 minutes away.
I could feel at home for those 10 days, and the flat, fournished with very good taste, is located on a very comfortable area to explore east berlin. Small suggestion to Mario: please make sure next time your guest does not have to wait too long at -10 to get the keys!
thx for the nice comment and for the usefull suggestion Costanza, but next time please don t complain about long waiting time for the check in, if you advise your host that you need 30 minutes more to get to the flat. We were there 30 minutes later exactely for that reason ; )
Great location, a lovely spacious apartment and delightfully close to public transport and lively areas. We had no problems what so ever and Mario was a great host! Would definitely recommend.
*If you enjoy cooking as we do, you should know that the kitchen has a bare minimum of utensils. You can make do but don't expect to cook anything overly advanced.
