This apartment is truly unique.
It is located very centrally on the border between the fashionable districts of Mitte and Friedrichshain. The Alexanderplatz is an easy 15 minutes’ walk or two U-Bahn stations away.
The building, a renovated Washhouse of the most magnificent building on the famous Karl Marx Allee (Block C-Sued), is situated on a huge park-like estate.
The lush garden is shielded from the hustle and bustle of the city by the surrounding architecture and with its large old trees provides a uniquely idyllic retreat after an exciting day in the city.
The building has been designed as a low-energy building and constructed according to the highest ecological standards. Premium quality materials and details, such as solid oak flooring, oak windows with triple glazing and clay plastered interior walls provide a healthy living environment and a comfortable atmosphere.
This loft-like apartment is generously furnished (LED flat-screen TV, DVD player, HIFi etc.), comes with a fully equipped modern kitchen, a bedroom for two persons and a spacious living room with a top of the range German-made sofabed that converts into a very comfortable bed for two (160 cm wide and 200 cm long). The bedroom can be completely separated from the rest of the apartment by a large sliding-door. The ceiling height is a generous 3,50 m.
The interior furniture and fittings, have been carefully selected with a view to providing a healthy living environment.
Towels, linen and extra large comforters (220 x 150 cm each) are provided.
The bathroom contains a flush-to-floor shower, WC and washbasin.
Washing mashines and dryers are available in the building.
Parking your car is easy, as the apartment disposes of its own parking space on the premises.
Public transport can be reached by foot via the Ostbahnhof train station and the Straussberger Platz U-Bahn station (both approx. 400 m from the building).
The Ostbahnhof train station gives easy access to the German high speed rail net, the Berlin S-Bahn system as well as both Berlin airports.

This was a great apartment to stay in. We came to Berlin for Silvester and found this a really accessible location, just ten minutes away from the Ostbahnhof. The apartment was clean, well-furnished and warm. There was enough bed space for three of us to stay comfortably and the apartment was quiet and felt secure. Nice bathroom and decent quality cooker, bedding and kitchen equipment, which I mention because many holiday apartments often fail to demonstrate much care with these details. Gerrit and Arnd were very helpful with the arrangements and live in the same building so were on hand to help with any queries. Thank you for a very pleasant stay.
Berlin was a fantastic place to spend Silvester. There was plenty to do, excellent places to eat nearby and we were able to take part in some interesting and unusual events, including a Silvester evening meal in an art gallery. Just one thing though ... watch out for the fireworks in Berlin on Silvester night ... they are launched from just about anywhere, making a walk along the pavement quite an adventure!
We enjoyed our stay at this apt! I would recommend it! The apt is very comfortable and we love this modern style. Subway is very near and everything is easy reachable. Very nice hosts, we feel like at home! Thank you so much! We hope to stay at your house again when we'll be in Berlin.
Thanks for your comments. It was a real pleasure hosting you and your lovely family and I feel bad for not having written a recommendation for you. Maybe people will read it this way. We'd be happy to host you again anytime!
All the best,
This place was sensational. Great location to see Berlin from and the Apt was perfect size for a couple, extremely comfortable. Nice hosts and would definitely stay here again if i come back to Berlin............ loved it!....
Not only is this place a truly great and beautiful loft app. but it's also very privet and quiet. It gives you the feeling of being out of town but you are actually just a 10 minut bike ride from the Mitte.
The hosts were very helpful, thoughtful and polite and I enjoyed their company. It's a good choice and worth every penny. I would defenatly come to stay with Gerrit & Arnd on my next visit to Berlin.
Gerrit and Arnd live in the same building and were very hospitable and trustworthy.
Modern-minimalistisch und sauber mit zuvorkommenden Gastgebern. Der zugehörige Parkplatz ist Gold wert. Allerdings ist vielleicht die Bezeichnung etwas "lost in translation" - das Haus ist ein Mehrparteienhaus in einem Garten, kein Gartenhaus.
