About this listing
Lovely, comfy high-ceilinged flat with terrace. This is a flat which will help you feel at home during your visit to Berlin.
Lovely, comfy high-ceilinged flat with terrace.
My flat is in the cool Berlin district of Friedrichshain. It's in a prefect quiet side-street location, yet it is in easy walking distance to the excellent nightlife of central Friedrichshain (Berlin's best bars and clubs in the Boxi/Simon-Dach Str and Revaler Str. area) as well as being a short walk away from the lovely and large, chilled-out nearby park, Volkspark Friedrichshain.
My flat is a lovely, comfy, quiet, high-ceilinged old flat with a terrace. It is a sunny and spacious 2 room(1 bedroom) ground floor flat; facing onto the Hinterhof (back courtyard) of a typical Berliner Altbau.
The flat includes a large bedroom with king-size bed; a living room with 2 comfy sofas and a dining area; a fully-equiped kitchen that is semi- open onto the living room; and a spacious bathroom with a shower and a washing machine. There is a second double-bed in an alcove of the corridor. This is a 'Hochbett' or Mezzanine-bed (a bit like a grown up version of a bunk bed). Beneath this Hochbett is a study area. If you want a 5th guest to stay, there is also a single fold-out mattress and spare bedding.
Outside the flat is a terrace area, perfect for relaxing on sunny days and warm evenings. The terrace is furnished with a hammock and a biergarten table and benches.
In the streets surrounding the flat are several good restaurants, local bars, bakeries, take-away restaurants, supermarkets and spati's (neighbourhood grocery and drink shops which are open late and also on Sunday's).
The flat is centrally located in Berlin and it takes 5-15mins by public transport to the districts of Mitte, Kreuzberg and Prenzlauer Berg. There is a tram stop 2 mins walk away (M10). Or it is just a 5 mins walk to either Frankfurter Tor U-Bahn (U5), Landsberger Allee S-Bahn or the M5,M6,M8 tram stops at Landsberger Allee/Danziger Strasse. These excellent transport connections make it easy to get around the whole city. By bike it's only a 5-10min cycle to Alexander Platz.
There is high-speed WIFI (WLAN) internet and TV. In the central courtyard of the building, there is storage space for bikes.
My lovely, friendly dog, Saskia, normally lives in this flat too. She will help give you a very warm welcome when you arrive and she will then leave with me, so you will have the flat to yourselves. I always do my best to make the flat as clean (and hair-free) as possible for guests but please be aware that sadly my flat isn't suitable for people with pet allergies.
Lynne's Wohnung war durch ihre tolle Lage und die schöne Ausstattung, eine richtige Bereicherung für unseren Kurz-Trip. Kurze Fahrt Zeiten zum Stadtzentrum und einen kurzen Fußweg zum Supermarkt machten es noch besser! Dazu kommt noch Lynne mit ihrem coolen Hund Saskia, die beide sehr gastfreundlich sind! Die Planung lief auch wie am Schnürchen! Grüße Paddy, Simon, Pasi und Benni mach weiter so auf dem nächsten Trip nach Berlin bist du unsere bevorzugte Wahl!
Our stay at Lynne's apartment was great! We had everything we needed, the communication with Lynne was perfect and she even prepared a little welcome package for us! Thanks for everything, we enjoyed the stay and I can recommend this apartment completely!
Wir haben einen Wochenend-Trip nach Berlin gemacht und sind in Lynne's Appartment wunderbar untergekommen. Das App ist sehr geräumig, liebevoll eingerichtet und hat großartige Holzfüßböden! Küche, Badezimmer usw. waren für unseren Bedarf komplett ausgestattet. Wir haben Lynne zwar leider nicht persönlich getroffen, aber Sie hat sich vom ersten Moment an um alles gekümmert (Emails, Schlüssel, Wegbeschreibung, usw.) und uns sogar noch gekühltes Bier im Kühlschrank als Willkommensgruß (denn es war Sommer....) deponiert.
Wir würden jederzeit gerne wieder bei Lynne Urlaub machen!
Lynne is adorable and her flat is amazing ! Clean, big, with a little garden... Our trip was awesome thanks to her !
We really enjoyed this lovely stay in the cosy flat of Lynne! She's the most kind hostess we met: helpful, considerate (lots of small attentions were waiting for us), she offered us much of good ideas of bars and restaurants. And the flat was perfect: we liked the decoration which made us travelling, the wonderful location, quiet and very near our favorite places like Mauerpark or Prenzlauer. And Saskia is an adorable mascot! We will return with pleasure in Lynne's place!
Everything was perfect. Very nice Appartement, clean, cozy, equipped with everything you need during a visit in Berlin. Warm welcome by Lynne and easy Check-in.
We had a great stay at Lynne's place and would definitely recommend it. We had 4 adults (2 couples) and were very comfortable with two in the bedroom and two in the loft bed. Lynne went out of her way to find a safe and convenient way for us to pick up the keys since she couldn't be there to meet us on arrival (but we did meet her at check out). The location worked well, with easy connections to public transportation. Internet worked perfectly and was fast. Everything was as shown in the pictures. Comfortable and cozy home base for a great trip to Berlin!

About the Host, Lynne
Hi, I'm Lynne.
I love travelling and hosting guests is second only to travelling myself.
I am originally from Manchester, in the north of England and I have been lucky enough to live in some interesting parts of the world! I am currently living in Berlin. I enjoy everything that Berlin has to offer- great bars, restaurants, museums,nights out, shop and parks. I also appreciate spending time relaxing with my dog and a good book.
