The Space

The 1-room apartment (40 sqm) is located near the Hackesche Höfe in the trendy Berlin district of Mitte. The flat is situated on the 2nd floor in Steinstrasse, a small, quiet street within this vibrant area, so you’ll be living in a peaceful and quiet apartment, while being in the heart of the city. It is an area well-known throughout the world, a cultural centre and famous for its nightlife.

The Hackescher Markt area has become a centre for new trends in fashion and culture, with its wealth of fashionable shops and restaurants, the contemporary art galleries on Auguststrasse and Linienstrasee, and the alternative cinemas and theatres at Hackesche Höfe, all of them are within a few minutes' walk from the apartment.

After leaving the house you will find yourself in the middle of the lively, trendy district of Mitte. Due to Berlin’s extensive public transport network, all the sights of the city are easily accessible.

A really perfect position in the city!

You will find grocery stores for your daily needs just a few minutes away.

The flat has a fully equipped kitchen. The apartment is tastefully decorated with accessories, giving it a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. There is a small dining area with a dining table.

One large double bed, a flatscreen-television, DVD, iPod docking station and radio are all included. The pleasantly styled bathroom is fitted with both a bathtub and a washing machine, and high quality towels plus elegant bed linen are included. The kitchen comes fully equipped with all mod cons. (microwave etc).

You will have generous space for luggage and clothes. The flat has got a wireless LAN access (WiFi, WLAN). You will receive two sets of keys.

You will enjoy a welcoming and charming apartment in a perfect central location in the German capital, Berlin.

Of all the Berliner districts, Mitte definitely has the most tourist attractions. The list of sights and historical buildings and squares, is endless. The Brandenburg Gate, a landmark both before and after reunification , is the most famous monument in Berlin. From here the magnificent boulevard Unter den Linden runs almost all the way to Alexanderplatz with its Television Tower and World Time Clock. On the way you will be passing the Humboldt University, the oldest university in Berlin, Staatsoper (the Operahouse), Museumsinsel (the Museum Island) and the site of the future Stadtschloss (town castle).

The Museumsinsel (Museum Island) is a World Heritage site. It is a treasure-trove of famous museums. Friedrichstrasse is today a commercial shopping boulevard with flagship stores and grand shopping centres like Galerie Lafayette, Quartier Latin and various international couture boutiques. The street leads to Checkpoint Charlie, the main gateway for the Allied forces, non-Germans and diplomats before the wall came down - and then leads on further to Oranienburger Strasse.

This former Jewish quarter is a very popular district for going out and very famous for its nightlife and hip young crowd. Nearby you will find the Neue Synagoge and the Hackesche Höfe. Gendarmenmarkt, which is said to be one of the most beautiful squares in Europe, is not far away. Here you will find buildings like the Schauspielhaus as well as the German and French Cathedrals.

Berlin has got an extensive public transport network. Due to the flat’s central location, a lot of visitors leave their cars parked or don't even come to town by car at all. Many of the tourist attractions are easily accessible. The apartment is situated near the S-Bahn station Hackescher Markt and the U-Bahn station Weinmeisterstrasse in former East Berlin. Additionally, there is a taxi rank very near the flat. Nearby you will find sights like Alexanderplatz, the Brandenburg Gate and the famous boulevard Unter den Linden.

  • Martin is a very nice person. He replied to all of our messages promptly and he provides all the information you need to get to the apartment and for your stay in Berlin. He was very flexible with our check in time and let us in early in the morning. However, I am not sure if because we had to check in earlier, there were some issues with the cleanliness of the apartment. The apartment itself was clean but it smelled weird, the sheets had a few hairs and a small stain, and the trash can from the bathroom had not been emptied. I was hesitant to add this in my review because, aside from this reason, we had an amazing stay!
    The location couldn't be better! You have lots and lots of coffee shops, galleries, stores, and restaurants around. It is walking distance from all the most important touristic sites. We loved the area!
    We rented some bicycles and were able to use the building's bike parking, which was very convenient.
    So overall we had a great experience!

  • Martin's apartment has excellent location in Mitte, minutes walk from the trendy Hackescher Markt - however in a very quiet street. Martin himself couldn't meet us so he sent a friend who was very informative. The place was very clean, comfortable, just as promised. TV a bit on the small side, but it wasn't that important to us. All in all we enjoyed our stay very much.

  • Super Lage, mitten in Berlin! 2 Min. zum u-Bhf Weinmeisterstr. 5 min zum u-Bhf Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz. 5 Min. zu Fuß zum Hackeschen Markt. Zentraler gehts nicht. Viele nette Cafes mit tollen Frühstücksangeboten und coole Restaurants ums Eck, z.B. in der Alten Schönhauser Straße.
    Die Wohnung ist eine nette, kleine 1-Zimmer-Wohnung - mit allem was man braucht. Alles sauber und gut hergerichtet, Wlan und TV alles funktioniert. Die Kommunikation mit Martin war super, einfach und prompt. Treffen und Übergabe hat gut und unkompliziert funktioniert.
    Vielen Dank, kann man nur empfehlen!

About
First of all, the most important thing :-) Normally you will get an answer for every inquiry within the same day! For whom is my service intended? For everyone! My guests are very mixed – the businessman from New York feels as comfortable here as the young family from a small town. I welcome the culturally interested, those who come here to Berlin events like the Berlinale or Fashion Week, music lovers and clubbers, and those who just want a relaxing holiday. Everyone is welcome, from singles to extended families. What’s my aim? To offer friendly, comprehensive and straightforward service at moderate prices – no ifs and buts! Who am I? The idea of an unconventional apartment service was born in the sunny April of 2003 over a glass of wine, cheese and a baguette. The accommodation service was set up, and what was initially a bit of fun and a second job quickly grew into a profession and a passion. Add two staff members, three temporary assistants and a trainee – and you get an ambitious crew that aims to grow even further! Where am I located? The firm’s office is located in the legendary suburb of Prenzlauer Berg, a central location in the former east of the city. The ‘wild’ years that followed the fall of the Wall are past, but life here is still lively and upbeat. The apartments and rooms are in central locations of Berlin, especially in the West in a central location close to Kurfürstendamm (Nollendorfplatz), and also in the Eastern centre like Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt.
