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.
Friedrichshain is arguably the most exciting neighbourhood in Berlin. While its busiest spots are just a short walk away, the flat itself is on a quiet street. There is also a supermarket at the corner.
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, and all railroad routes.
There are many options for public transport, but basically:
Schönefeld Airport: 35' with S9.
Tegel Airport: 49' with Bus TXL + S42.
Berlin Ostbahnhof: 13 ' with S 7
Berlin Südkreuz: 18 ' with S 42

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: starts after 13:00 (1 PM).
Please understand that dropping your bags in the apartment before CHECK-IN is NOT possible.
If you need a place to store them until check-in, please tell me your point of arrival (which airport /train/ bus station) and I will email you directions to nearby luggage lockers & a visitor's guide to the neighborhood.
ENTERING THE APARTMENT:
Both the building and apartment doors have remote-controlled locks. I will NOT be there when you arrive. You will need to call my phone when you reach the building, and I will unlock the doors remotely. 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). Please leave keys back on the table!
Once you are inside:
1 - Please be kind to your neighbours and respect quiet hours after 22:00.
2 - No smoking.
3 - No illegal file sharing. Unfortunately German laws punish the use of p2p software like uTorrent, Emule, Vuze, with fines of up to 5000 Euros.
Now that you have read this, please reply with the following REQUIREMENTS:
1- I will not p2p.
2- I will call you at around [estimate time you will reach the apartment, for CHECK-IN].
3 - from my profile's phone number / different number [PHONE NUMBER].
