SPECIAL PRICE for a short time only!!!
The small but comfortable PRIVATE DOUBLE ROOM is located in a 2 bedroom apartment on the ground floor facing the inner courtyard of a renovated 70's DDR building. Located only a few steps away from the Spree river and serviced by a supermarket, bakery, and 2 late night shops at the corner. There is also a huge shopping centre across the bridge.
The flat consists of 2 bedrooms (I occupy one of them), hallway, a small but fully functional kitchen, and bathroom. The wooden floors, high ceilings and central heating provide a clean and relaxing setting to rest after a busy day out.
The idea is for you to feel at home. You get clean bed-sheets and towels, full use of the kitchen, bathroom and washing machine.
The room has Wi-Fi, its own key to the door, a big wardrobe, a double bed (140x200), and a small table and chair.
Coffee and tea are free of charge, along with my humble tips and advice!
The Friedrichshain neighbourhood is known for its vibrant art scene, alternative culture, huge range of bars and restaurants, street markets and relaxed atmosphere. While its busiest spots are just a stroll down the street, the flat itself is in a peaceful residential area.
The nearby Ostkreuz S-Bahn station is a strategic transport hub which provides easy and quick access to any part of the city, both its airports (Schönefeld=39 min / Tegel=45 min), and any part of Germany through the Ostbahnhof Train Station.
There are many options for public transport, but basically:
Schönefeld Airport: 39 min with the "S9" Line
Tegel Airport: 45 min with BUS TXL + "Ring/S42"
Train station: Berlin HBF: 22 min with the S7 or S5 or S75 .
Train station: Berlin Ostbahnhof: 15 min with the S7 or S5 or S75.
Bus Station: Funkturm/ZOB: 48 minutes with the S42
* You get more detailed directions with your booking.
From 1 am to 4 am some S-Bahn lines are replaced by buses, and schedules change depending on time/day of the week, but takes around 1 hour, either airport.
Some S-Bahn travel times from Ostrkeuz to:
Warschauer Straße: 1 min
Alexander Platz: 9 min
Kottbusser Tor: 15 min
Brandenburg Gate: 18 min
Potsdamer Platz: 19 min
The S-Bahn runs all night on weekends, and every 30' during week nights. Four buses also stop nearby:
• N94 (night bus)
A very clean place with a good location yet very quiet at night. Vinny was on work travels (of which he wasn't aware of at the time of booking) while we stayed at his apartment. He arrange his neighbor to show the apartment and give us any tips we wanted to know. So special thank goes to Debora also. Recommendations!
We had a nice time at Vinny's place. The place could have been a little bit cleaner but Vinny left in a hurry because of work. We've had the place to ourselves so we could enjoy our privacy. The area Friedrichshain was nice with a barstreet and had an urban vibe. We preferred Prenzlauerberg, nicer buildings and a more classy vibe. Communication with Vinny was perfect even though we never met him in person. His friend Debora welcomed us. If you're looking for a budget place and you wish to stay in the Friedrichshain area then Vinny is a great option. HOWEVER : Only a shame that he can't cope with a little critism and feels the need to slander our profile after this (not so incredibly bad)review... Also a bit surprising because he responded in a very nice and respectful manner via email when we gave him the same requested feedback (there were a couple of things but we didn't make a big deal, we're not that highmaintenance or picky.. just advised to get rid of some dirty things for the next guests) A bit twofaced, sadly.Four out of five stars, perfectionism is a bitch...apparently...:-)
I had a fantastic great time with Vinny!
He is really friendly and receive you in a very kindly way with his amazing special coffee! The appartment is cosy, sweet, clean and well located in Berlin.
I had two beautiful days there.
I recommend you to come over here ;)
Vinny is a great host-very warm and friendly, quick to respond and flexible. Great communication and he gave us all the necessary info for our stay. We stayed just one night for a concert, but the place was nice and clean and made our two days in Berlin much more enjoyable. Definitely recommend it for its proximity to some cool neighborhoods and especially for shorter stay its perfect.
I spent 10 wonderful days at Vinnys place. the room is nice and has enough space for your stuff. The bed is very comfortable! Its clean as the rest of the apartment. Vinny is very helpful with showing you where to go! The area is save and close to cool bars and clubs. You will spend great time there!
We spent a really wonderful time in Berlin. Vinny is an amazing person. He helped us any time we needed, giving useful information. The room is very comfortable, clean, warm and well equipped. We feel like home and enjoy our stay. Thank you very much Vinny!!! We wish we can came back!!
It was my first time with Airbnb and I can say that it was a great experience. The room was very nice, well furnished and clean like the whole house, which is located in a cool area from where you can easily reach the other parts of the city. Vinny is a very nice person, polite and always ready to help me and to give me the right advice to visit Berlin. He was a perfect host and I would be very happy to visit him again. Grande Vinny!!
We stayed with Vinny for 2 nights in January and had a lovely stay. Vinny was so nice to offer some tea when we arrived which was greatly appreciated after the 13 hour train ride from Sweden. We also had a pretty big slip on the refrozen snow on the way there and Vinny kindly fixed us an ice pack and offered some bandages etc.
The room was clean and comfortable and in a great location. We appreciated Vinny taking the time to show us the map and explain some of the hot spots to check out. He also allowed us to keep our bags at the appartment after checkout! Thank you for being a lovely host :)
Very friendly and helpful host!
Vin is a really nice host ! Easy to reach the room from Ostkreuz. The room is quite quiet and the bed is good. There's enough place for your stuff. Everything was fine.
