About This Listing
SPECIAL PRICE for limited time only!
The small but comfortable PRIVATE DOUBLE ROOM is located in an apartment on the ground floor, facing the inner courtyard, right next to the Spree river.
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.
Interaction with Guests
Coffee and tea are free of charge, along with my humble tips and advice!
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 S7
Berlin Südkreuz: 18' with S42
Berlin Hauptbahnhof: 30' with S7
Bus Station: ZOB am Funkturm / Messe Nord: 48' with S42
* You get more detailed directions when you book.
Osktreuz S-Bahn station: 7' walk.
Some S-Bahn travel times from Ostkreuz station to:
U-Bahn Warschauer Str. : 4'
Alexander Platz: 10'
Kottbusser Tor: 15'
Brandenburg Gate: 18'
Potsdamer Platz: 20'
Four buses also stop nearby:
•N94 (night bus)
Other Things to Note
Parking: Our street is just outside the city's Umweltzone. So parking on the street is free and you don't need the LEZ sticker either ;)
IMPORTANT, READ ENTIRELY!
Check-in: After 13:00
Check-out: Before 12:00 (noon/midday).
1 – We need to set up an appointment for your check-in. Please send me your airport (SXF or TXL) or train/bus station name + time of arrival + return. Additionally, train number / flight number would be great. I need this info to calculate at what time you will get to the house, and what time you need to check-out.
2 – The apartment has an electronic device that allows me to open the door remotely, with my phone. If you are more than 30' late, I might not be home anymore. In such case, you will need to call me once you are at the front door, and I will buzz you into both the building and the apartment. So please confirm that the phone number in your profile is correct, and that you will have this phone with you.
Once you are here:
I beg guests to take shoes off at the entrance, so you might want to bring some slippers/flip-flops/extra pair of clean shoes.
No smoking around the house, except for the kitchen (closed door & open window).
Unfortunately the use of P2P software in Germany is punished by law, so in order to get the Wi-Fi password I will ask you to sign a piece of paper where you agree NOT to do so. I hate having to do this, but fines go up to EUR 5000!
Our host Vinny was great. The place is cozy and well equipped with easy access. House instructions were clearly detailed. I confirm all the positive reviews & highly recommend Vinny's.
In addition I try to mention a few other points: The instruction says you are required to make a phone call to get in, however we were given a set of keys to enter, which was a relief.
The room does not have ventilation system, so I recommend having the window open while inside.
The mattress was a little soft for us.
Thank you Vinny for everything & your recommendation on restaurants were spot on :)
Our host Vinny was great! A friend and I stayed at his place while in Berlin, he was incredibly helpful. He went the extra mile to find out some information for our train tickets, and even recommended some places to check out. I highly recommend this host if you're ever in Berlin. He is easy going and friendly.
Had a really good time at Vinny's. Very nice and attentive host.
Dies war unsere erste Buchung bei airbnb und wir haben sie keinen Moment bereut.
Als Neulinge waren wir uns noch etwas unsicher, wie alles ablaufen wird und was von uns erwartet wird, aber Vinny hat uns den Einstieg in diese Art des Reisens sehr einfach gemacht, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und können die Unterkunft mitsamt Gastgeber jedem wärmstens empfehlen.
Vinny ist ein ausgesprochen zuvorkommender, hilfsbereiter, unaufdringlicher und netter Gastgeber. Wir haben uns in der zwar kleinen, aber absolut sauberen und gemütlich eingerichteten Wohnung gleich zu Hause gefühlt.
Vinny versorgt einen mit Kaffee, Karten und Insidertips und steht einem bei Bedarf mit Rat und Tat zur Seite.
Die Wohnung ist mit Bus und U-Bahn bestens zu erreichen, in der Nähe ist ein Lidl und im Zentrum von Friedrichshain gibt es beste Ausgeh-,Eß- und Frühstücksmöglichkeiten. Auch die tollen Nachbarbezirke-Kreuzberg und Neu-Kölln sind nicht weit.
Im Hintergrund hört man ein wenig Verkehr, aber die Fenster sind super isoliert, sodass sogar ich gut schlafen konnte( und ich wache bei jedem Geräusch auf..).
Also: Alles in Allem können wir eine 100% positive Bewertung geben.
Wir kommen gerne wieder!
We had a comfortable stay at Vinny's apartment. He was friendly and let us check in a couple of minutes before 1. All was very well facilitated in the bedroom, which is quite small but we did not mind. The bed comfortably sleeps two. The only drawback were the pillows which were quite lumpy but we still slept well.
The location is a little far off the city of you want to walk but the connection by public transport is great. This is a good deal and I recommend it for a cheap and uncomplicated stay in Berlin.
