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.
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.

Hi Lynne, Thank you again for a very pleasant stay. Even if we did not meet you, you were very helpful with directions and everything worked out perfectly. The location was perfect since we had a concert at the O2 World and spent a lot of time around Alexander Platz.
In Berlin zu Hause. Lynne´s Wohnung war perfekt: 4 Anreisen aus Nord und Süd, einkaufen und kochen, noch Freunde aus der Stadt empfangen, zusammen essen: ein Abend für 6 glückliche Leute. Schlafen für vier im Kingsize- bzw. Hochbett - prima. 1 a ruhige Lage und trotzdem mittendrin. Lynne ist großzügig und eine Gastgeberin, wie man sie sich nur wünschen kann. Vielen Dank!
Lynne was very friendly and helpful. Her apartment had everything we needed (we did a fair amount of cooking there for example) and was additionally very well decorated from her many travels. She left us champagne for new years and let us use her Berlin travelers guide books. The location of the apartment is about as good as you can get considering Berlin is very spread out (we did have to do a lot of metro travel but the station is right next to the apartment) and we enjoyed a nearby Indian restaurant one night. Overall a great experience.
We had a wonderful time in Lynne's apartment. Lynne left us a couple German goodies which we really appreciated as well as tons of information and maps. We didn't have a minute to spare with all of the cool things to do. The place was perfect. We made our Christmas Eve dinner and enjoyed some good down time watching movies and playing games. The beds were extremely comfortable. Great water pressure. Also awesome location just far enough from the city center to experience an authentic German neighborhood. No complaints. Would definitely return. Not to mention Berlin was an amazing city over the Christmas holidays.
Hey Lynne, thanks again for the pleasant stay. We were happy to meet you and we will recommand your lovely apartment!
We felt very comfortable in the apartment. Anytime again!
Thank you also for being a very nice and uncomplicated host, Lynne :)
We (a Danish family of four) had a great stay in Lynne Hope's flat. Lynne was an exceptionally welcoming and service-minded host. We highly recommend her flat which easily accommodates two adults and two young children. Its location offers easy access to several of Berlin's many interesting neighbourhoods and attractions - and Friedrichshain itself is very pleasant and family-friendly. Enjoy your stay!
Lynne's apartment is on a very quiet street, in a nice residential area northeast of the Friedrichshain you've heard about (Berghain and the other clubs near Warschauer Straße). It has a nice backyard which I was totally jealous of.
The bed in the apartment is huge and extremely comfortable, which I'd say was a total treat. Overall, this is a great base if you want to discover Berlin and its coolness... the M10 tram is basically a minute walk from the apartment, but there are other stations/stop 5/10 minutes away.
My only complain is that you can probably figure out a dog usually lives in the apartment when sitting on the living room couches. Honestly I didn't care at all, but thought I'd mention it.
Unser Aufenthalt in Lynnes Wohnung war super. Wir wurden sehr freundlich empfangen und haben uns echt wohl gefühlt. Im Notfall war Lynne auch die ganze Zeit erreichbar. Vielen Dank noch einmal für alles! Bis zum nächsten Mal! Katja und Tim!
Wir haben ein wunderbares Wochenende in Berlin verbracht. Die Lage von Lynnes Wohnung in Friedrichshain ist ideal, um schnell mittels öffentlichen Nahverkehrs Berlin zu erkunden. Die Wohnung selbst ist gemütlich eingerichtet. Durch die Lage im Hinterhaus ist sie ruhig gelegen. Lynne hat uns freundlich empfangen und war das ganze Wochenende erreichbar. Beim nächsten Berlinbesuch gern wieder bei Lynne.
