This apartment (90sqm) is in a 1893 historical building with a big bedroom, 2 bathrooms, kitchen and living room.
Centrally located in Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin's most beautiful area, in a quiet street w/ nice restaurants, cafés and lots of green!
You will have an entire 90sqm apartment (about 960 sqft) at your disposal, including a bedroom, two bathrooms, a living room and a kitchen.
The apartment is very convenient if you are traveling with heavy luggages since we live on the mezzanine floor (just 4-5 steps), just in front of the entrance on the right.
Wireless internet is of course included, we have a cable connection which is very fast (16Mbs). The password is written on the fridge.
There are 2 TVs in the apartment: one in your room, where you can watch numerous international channels, and one in the living room, to which you can connect your computer to watch movies or videos with the HDMI and mini-display port connectors provided (this TV is not connected to the cable).
The bedroom is fully furnished, with loads of wardrobe space, and a big 140cm bed ideal for 1 or 2 people + a child (who can use the armchair that pulls out into a bed)
The kitchen is also at your disposal. Pots, pans, etc. are easy to find. Just make yourself at home :) You have space in the fridge and in the cupboards to store your stuff. You can also use the oven and microwave.
We also have a washing machine + dryer which can be used as well.
Towels and bedsheets are included.
Interaction with Guests
We will welcome you and hand-over the keys; in case we will be traveling, the cleaning lady will do the same.
If you have any questions,we are always available via telephone or email, and we get back to you in a matter of minutes!
The area is one of the most trendy neighborhoods in Berlin, with lots of shops, bars and nice restaurants, all reachable by foot; we can provide you with list of the best places to eat and/or have a drink, please just ask (or check the guidebook in our profile).
The area is very quite and green, with a few cars passing by; it's also very safe (thanks to the two police stations in the area). In front of the house there is a church famous for having been the place where the peaceful revolution started (don't worry, the bell rings only during the day ;)
Mauerpark, also known as („wallpark” because of the Wall which passed through it) is just 20 minutes away, there you can relax or visit the famous flee market on Sunday.
In the area you can find several shops and supermarkets:
- mini-market next to our place, on the left
- Supermarket, postoffice and several shops in the Schönhauser Arkaden mall (5 minutes from home, behind the church on the left)
- Kaiser's (supermarket), Pappelallee 45 (5 minutes walk, first street on the left taking a right when leaving home)
- Kiepert & Kutzner (organic supermarket), Schönhauser Allee 65 (10 minutes walk, second left taking a left when leaving home)
The apartment is 10-15 minutes from the center (Alexander Platz and the television tower, an ideal point to start exploring the city), reachable by subway (S-Bahn and U-Bahn Schönhauser Allee), tram, bus all 3 minutes away by foot.
Airports are conveniently reachable: Schönefeld is directly connected to the line S9 (S-Bahn) and Tegel by S41/42 + bus TXL. The main station (Hauptbahnhof) is connected to U2 to Alexander Platz + any S-Bahn going westward.
If you want to rent bikes, at the corner with Greifenhagener Straße (one minute walk when leaving the apartment on the left), you can find some for a decent price; just ask in the café Gina M.
Really, you couldn't find a place strategically better positioned in Berlin!
Other Things to Note
When booking please let us know your arrival and departure times, so that we can organize it accordingly.
Check-in is after 15:00 and check-out is before 12:00 (noon), but we are flexible according to the availability (if there is no other guest coming you can stay until the afternoon and arrive in the morning). So let us know before you arrive so that we can find a solution which is best for you!
Out of respect for others guests we don't allow smoking in the apartment; since the apartment is located on the mezzanine floor it's super convenient to smoke in the yard or in the front of the house.
Small size pets are allowed, so please leave your Saint Bernard at home ;)
Andrea's apartment is fantastic! You can tell he has put in a great deal of effort to make his home a great place to stay. Everything you could want is available to you, plus some. Communication with Andrea was easy and quick, even considering he was out of the country during my stay. He even provided an iPhone with data that you could take with you and use... granted I already had a phone with data and did not try it. The iPhone shows the length Andrea has gone to make your stay awesome. The apartment is in a good location and close to transit. There's no longer a TV in the living room, which I was bummed about as I wanted to relax and watch a movie some nights, but it's not a huge deal. Thanks Andrea!
Andrea est un super hôte. L'appart était très propre à notre arrivée, une bouteille de vin rouge nous attendait même, ainsi qu'un iPhone... Car oui, Andrea prête un téléphone avec une puce allemande pour éviter d'avoir à exploser son forfait mais aussi pour pouvoir utiliser les applications de cartographie de la ville. Quant à l'appartement, rien à redire, il est très bien situé, dans un quartier avec pas mal de restos et bars sympas donc idéal pour rentrer vite une fois la soirée terminée. Un hôte plus que recommandable.
Great apartment right in the middle of hip Prenzlauer Berg. Very spacious and welcoming. All appliances worked great; was easy to get on wireless. I was worried it would be noisy because it's on a busy street, but it was quiet at night and easy to sleep. Andrea clearly knows his stuff and had the place in great order.
It was my first experience with AirBNB and Andrea made it an excellent one. I booked at the last minute with only hours before I was to arrive to Berlin and Andrea was quick to confirm the reservation as well make arrangements for key transfer. I have nothing but great things to say about the place, it's on a quiet street yet very close to public transportation making getting to where you want to go easy. It was a relaxing weekend that was much needed for me in between two long legs of a multi week trip. I needed a place to relax, do laundry, and close enough for me to be able to venture out as needed. All of the above were met, loved the place and hope to book again when in town.
Perfect. Very elegant apartment in historic building. High ceilings and many original features. Quality fittings. Spotless. Excellent location.
Andrea was most helpful at all times.
I highly recommend and look forward to a return visit.
