This is a Charming, Older former DDR (East Berlin) apartment! It is very minimal, but has everything you need for an enjoyable and cozy stay in Berlin! And the location, cant be better.
It is a quaint little 1 bedroom apartment (40sqm) in the middle of Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin.
The apartment is perfect for one person or couples. Wood floors, lots of natural light, bathtub, full kitchen, and a double size bed. The apartment is located on Schönhauser Allee, in the Hinterhof of a Berlin Altbau. Open the windows during the night and you will have a gentle beautiful breeze!
The vibrant area is full of shops, cafes, and restaurants. The apartment is within 50 meters of the nearest U-bahn station or Tram stop (Eberswalder). It is a perfect location for those intrested in the arts or those visiting Berlin for the 1st time, as most of Berlin's galleries are a 10min quick bike ride into Mitte. During winter, is is located right behind a wonderful Christmas Market at the KulturBrauerei.
The neighborhood is very safe. The apartment is also located next to a large grocery store and around the corner from other amenities such as internet cafes and laundrymats. You can also rent a bike next door for your time in Berlin. Also nearby is the KulturBrauerei, a mecca of concerts, theatre, and media.
For those interested in history, the remainder of the Berlin Wall is a 10 minute walk west of the apartment. It is also a 10 minute walk to Mauer Park, Sunday's the longest running independent market-extravaganza in Berlin.
If you want a cozy flat next to everything, where you can walk out your door into Berlin, this is the place for you. Although there is no WIFI, there are two cafes next door with free internet the entire day.
For guests staying in fall-winter, the place can also be heated with a wood coal oven(optional) for a true Berlin experience. Very romantic pulling up next to the fire! It gets nice and toasty!
This is my home, it is not a hotel, so I please ask you to respect the apartment as you would your own home.
PLEASE NO SMOKING INSIDE!
Please no smoking inside the apartment.
I am not your maid. Please do not leave dirty dishes in the sink for me, or wet towels on the bathroom floor.
Please do not leave old food in the fridge on plates or dishes.
Please take your garbage with you. The bins are located outside in the courtyard.
Please turn the lights off when you leave the apartment.
Please turn heat down or off.
Please do not move around the art. Or do weird things with the furniture, like leaving a stool in the bathroom.
If you cook, please clean the stove after yourself.
Thanks and enjoy your stay!
The apartment is very cosy. The location is excellent, close to many restaurants, bars and cafés. Everything you need you can get in a few blocks.
Paul was a very helpful and thorough host.
My boyfriend and I had a REALLY nice stay at Paul's apartment.
The location couldn't be better and neither could the apartment. Paul was such a friendly host and was there when we arrive to deliever the key and he gave us some nice pieces of advice which was very usefull!
The apartment was cosy and perfect for to persons! It was really nice with all the paintings, books and pictures.
Actually there isn't anything to complain about.
Die Unterkunft war sehr gemütlich und trotz des kalten Wetters schön warm. Das Gastgeberehepaar war sehr freundlich, unkompliziert und zuverlässig. Der Altbau hat einen super Atmosphäre und die Gegend rundherum ist auch ziemlich toll! Gerne wieder mal....
Värden mötte oss vid porten och visade lägenheten och berättade om omgivningen.
Great apartment, amazing location, awesome host (and paintings)! Definitely the perfect place to visit Berlin from. Thanks!
The appartment is very cozy with a minimalistic interior. It was very nice to stay someplace, where you don't get distracted by any excess luxury (no offense!). It's an old appartment, and if you are a bit history-orientated, this makes the stay even better. Paul's paintings take in some room in the hallway, but are really nice to look at.
The location is beautiful. Public transportation is around the corner. You can easy park your car at the Kulturbrauerei (€5-€7 a day) and the bike-rental service is 20m to the right when you leave the building (great way to discover the city!)
We had a great time here. Thanks Paul!
The location of the apartament is wonderful, in one of the best neighborhoods of Berlin. The apartmente consits in one room with a bed and small table, a kitchen and bathroom. Enough if you use it only to sleep. I think the pictures of the room that you can see on the website are more beautiful than the reality is. The room is the Paul's painting study and it smells a little bit of paint. He has in the apartment his clothes, toothbrush, the fridge full of his food... For me it was strange find this kind of issues, due to I rent an entire apartament. But, I guess this is the point of airbnb. This is was my first experience in airbnb, so I don't know if this is usual.
The windows don't have curtains, so in the morning the light is quite annoying.
So, the best is the location of the apartment and the price for the room.
