About this listing
SPECIAL PRICE for limited time only!
The small but comfortable apartment is located right next to the Spree river, in a renovated building, on the ground floor, behind a quiet backyard.
The flat consists of 2 double bedrooms, hallway, a small but fully functional kitchen, and bathroom. One of 2 bedrooms is closed off, as this used to be my bedroom and I still use it as storage, but you get the rest of the flat to yourself. The wooden floors, high ceilings and central heating provide a clean and relaxing setting to rest after a busy day out.
Full access to the apartment (except for my former bedroom).
Clean towels & bedsheets.
Interaction with Guests
I will be happy to answer all your questions. You can contact me by phone, Whatsaρρ, SMS, or AirBnB.

Other Things to Note
Parking: Our street is on the edge of the city's Umweltzone (Low Emission Zone). So parking on the street is free and you don't need the LEZ sticker either ;)
IMPORTANT: You will need to have a working mobile phone in order to check-in on your first day!
CHECK-IN: 13:00 (1 PM).
Please understand that dropping your bags in the apartment before 13:00 is NOT possible. If you need a place to store them until check-in, tell me your point of arrival (name of airport/ train/ bus station) and I will email you directions to nearby luggage lockers.
The apartment has an electronic device which allows me to open the doors remotely, over the internet. I will NOT be there when you arrive. You will need to call me when you reach the building, and I will open the doors over the internet. You can avoid the cost of the phone call by giving me a “missed call” (let my phone ring one time and hang up). It’s free.
Once inside you will find a set of keys on the kitchen table.
CHECK-OUT: before 12:00 (noon/midday).
When you leave on your last day, please leave the keys back on the table! Then simply shut the door behind you.
Once you are inside:
1 - Please be kind to your neighbours and respect quiet hours after 22:00.
2 - No smoking.
3 - Illegal file sharing is a serious crime under German laws. The penalty for providing copyrighted material (e.g. via software like uTorrent, Emule, Vuze, Azureus) goes up to 5000 euros. If the router detects P2P activity, your booking will be immediately terminated. Don’t worry, streaming, Youtube, F B, S k y p e, are all OK, just not P2P.
Now that you have read this, please reply to my message including the following:
I agree not to use P2P software.
My phone number is (your phone number).
I will call you around (estimate arrival time).
