Nice domicile @ Prenzlauer Berg

Apartment - Private room · Pappelallee, Berlin, Berlin 10437, Germany

The Space

I offer days-wise lodging in my wonderful 60sqm-3-rooms-flat in an old building in the middle of Prenzlauer Berg. In spite of gentrification (imho) still the best part of Berlin; to live as well as a base for touristic stays.

In a 10-minutes radius you find many bars and shopping possibilities. Helmholtz-Platz is 100 ms, Mauerpark 10 minutes away.
Excellent traffic supply: To reach at 5 minutes: U-Bhf. Eberswalder Straße, S/U-Bhf. Schönhauser Allee, tram M1, 12, 50 and M10. To Alexanderplatz you need 15 min, to airport Tegel 30 min.

The guest-room is 12 square meters, very bright and furnished suitably. The stacked bed construction offers place for two people. Of course your 'right of residence' is not limited to this room. I like to share also the cooking area and sitting room with you.

It is allowed to smoke on the balcony.

Looking forward to meet you!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Alex's place. He had a nice cosy living room and two great bed's to sleep in. The location is very nice with a metro station nearby. It was really easy exploring the city this way.

    I will definitely recommend staying at Alex's place.

    Alex was very helpfull with the informations to get to the appartment from the airport and supermarkets, etc. in the neighborhood.
    Berlin is great!

  • My friend and I stayed in Alex's apartment for 4 nights. Alex was on holiday so we never got to meet him, but he made sure that everything was taken care of for our stay. He arranged for a friend to clean the apartment and meet us for check in, and he also made sure that the internet was working before we arrived. During our stay, he kept checking in with us to make sure things were going well.

    The apartment is very spacious, and in a great neighborhood in Berlin. The S-Bahn, U-Bahn, and tram are a short walk from the neighborhood. I would highly recommend Alex's place to anyone staying in Berlin!

  • Had a great week's stay with my son. The apartment (and location) was just as described. Alex was helpful in arranging for an early check-in, and he also gave us some good suggestions for places to go in the evening. He was easy going, helpful but non-intrusive. I will certainly try to stay here again when in Berlin.

  • I had a very nice stay for 4 days in the appartment of Alex Carstenssons. The room was big enough, there was a clean bathroom and a lot of privacy. Also Alex was a very hospitable person, he has a god feeling for the balance between giving you information and leaving you alone.

  • Once we got in to Alex's place he was a great host. We got a chance to hear his stories about living in East Berlin before the wall came down! He was also very helpful with our travel questions and the location is great. If you stay here eat at the Vietnamese restaurant kitty corner to his place. Only complaint was his unresponsiveness to several of my emails prior to our arrival. As a result he misunderstood when we were arriving and we had to wait 2.5 hrs to get into his apartment the day we arrived which was unfortunate.

  • Our stay was quite OK with Alex's home. He has a flu and was sick during our stay but he still did his best accommodating us. One thing that surprised us is that his place is located on the 5th floor of the building with no elevator. We were carrying 25 kilos of luggage and climbing to the 5th floor was a challenge. I just hope that he discloses the floor information in his property description next time.
    Aside from that, everything went very smoothly. His place is right in front of the tram rail and there are numerous places to eat around.

  • Location was good. Easy access from main train station, close to public transport made it really easy to get around. Very nice of the neighbours to let us in very late. Only downside was not having access to wifi, which was pretty important for us since we had no idea how to get anywhere. Due to Alex being gone he could not fix it for us. Overall, plesant stay. Directions to oven may be good for next guests :)

    September 2013
  • Alex's place is very clean, the room cosy and you have everything you need: a wifi connection, clean towels and, more important, a friendly and cool host!

Born & grown up in East Germany. Live in East Berlin since 1986. Did many different studies & jobs. Since Feb 2013 I work as project manager for railway infrastructure construction operations. Unfortuneately this job takes a lot of time and energy; so on weekdays I am seldom able to have parties with you... I like to travel; mostly inside Europe. I have an affinity to Norway & Catalunya. I am addicted to soccer and a big fan of Hamburger SV & FC Barcelona. Unfortunately I spent too much time to watch their matches... If the weather is sufficient, I play Petanque at the Mauerpark. Being an AirBnB host means meeting many sympathic and interesting people.
