About this listing
When we got this apartment many of our Berlin friends said "wow, how did you get THAT?". What they mean is the combination of location, building and the general feel of the place - right in the very heart of Berlin.
THE location in Berlin on 75 m2! Walking distance: 2 minutes to Friedrichstraße, Kingsize, Friedrichstadtpalast, 5 minutes to Brandenburg gate, Unter den Linden and Reichstag, 10 minutes to Museumsinsel, Torstraße, Hauptbahnhof and Hamburger Bahnhof Museum, 15 Minutes to Potsdamer Platz and Checkpoint Charlie etc etc.
There is more public transport avilable close by than you could use! S- and U-Bahn trains, bus and tram lines. And if you stop a taxi in the street at Hauptbahnhof and demand a "Kurzstrecke" a Taxi-ride from the Main station is only 4 Euro.
The street is a beautiful residential street, off the known paths but only a couple of steps from the buzz of Europes hottest metropolis. There are a bunch of shops around that are open almost 24/7 and there are plenty of restaurants near by, ranging from cheap (7.50 Euro for a buffet breakfast) to fancy (Bar1000).
The house built in the early 19hundrets, in fact the whole street is lined with listed landmark buildings and our house even has its own Wikipedia article. The apartment itself features high ceilings, a luxury bathroom with bath-tub and seperate shower, a south facing roof terrace/roof garden commanding views of the Reichstag and TV tower, as well as a cozy fireplace, hardwood floors, selected antique and unique furnishings and a hotel quality Duxiana bed with down bedding and linen sheets.
Wifi is free and we keep a German pre-paid simcard that you can use for internet and mobile phones. A Bang & Olufsen sound dock will provide your very own soundtrack for your stay in Berlin.
The apartment can be used by up to four people, if two of you are prepared to sleep in the living room. However, it is ideal for two people.
Please note that it is on the 4th floor and without an elevator and that the Friedrichstraße station and railwaylines are close by.
OUR TWO CATS WILL BE AT THE APARTMENT EVEN WHEN WE ARE NOT! They will not need much but they will be there and will need feeding and ideally some TLC.
Love the cats! Care for them! Be nice to them. Be a fun-loving but responsible human being in general!
Try not to annoy the neighbours. Try not to break things. Don't burn down the house.
Other than that you will find a list of things to be aware of when you come.
