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.
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.
