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 war eine sehr nette Gastgeberin und hat eine sehr gemütliche Wohnung. Immer wieder gern;-)
Appartement à l'image de Lynne : accueillant et chaleureux.
Bonne situation dans bon quartier.
Très bon séjour !
Lynne was a great host.
Everything was well organized and the appartment was great.
I can really recommend this place. It feels like home.
Thanks again for the stay Lynne.
Lynne is a great host. We received a warm welcome and there were welcome drinks in the fridge. The flat is awesome and the location is very good and actually not so far from the city even for a walk. We had a great time in Berlin and we are surely coming back to this flat.
Lynne's place was very conveniently located facing into a quite back yard and supermarkets, restaurants and public transport close by.
Everything was so nice and clean that it exceeded my expectations massively!
The apartment itself is a lot darker than it seems on the pictures and in my opinion it only really sleeps 3 - we booked for 4 and one of us slept on the living room floor on a foldable mattress. It was fine for a weekend, I would go elsewhere had I planned to stay for longer.
The contact with Lynne was easy and we had no problems whatsoever picking up the keys from a neighbour.
Great appartment in a great location. We stayed with 3 people for 8 days in Lynns appartment and we loved every day of it. When we arrived there were cold beers in the fridge and some magnums (the icecream..) too! We felt very welcome. Good size rooms, nice beds, wifi, great outdoor patio (it was super in the summer).
When we were staying in Berlin it was over 30 degrees Celcius. It was very comfortable that the appartment stayed at a very cool and pleasant temperature. Bathroom was great.
We wanted to rent bikes and Lynn send us to a perfect (cheap) place.
Good fresh bakeries and stores in the neighborhood. Public transportation is also very nearby (one minute walk).
Next time we visit Berlin, we would like to stay in this appartment again.
Great location and awesome flat! We had a lovely stay for a weekend. Lynne was very easy to contact and left some very useful tips for our stay.
The bedroom was large and the bed was very comfortable. The shower was great and the kitchen had everything we needed.
Thanks Lynne for leaving the beers in the fridge for us!
The flat is super close to the tram station making it easy to get around.
The Italian restaurant around the corner that Lynne recommended was lovely.

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.
