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)
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).
The building and apartment doors have a device which allow me to open the doors remotely, with my phone.
If you come between 12:00 and 13:00, you will find me there, as this when I do the cleaning. If you come after 13:00, I won't be home, but will open the doors remotely. When you reach the building, simply make a missed call to my mobile phone: I will call you back, open the doors, and guide you trough the house. You will find a set of keys inside, of course.
If you arrive in the morning, I can give you directions to luggage lockers near the house. Please ask and I will email you a PDF with a picture guide.
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!
We had a great time in Berlin @ Vinny's place!
Such a warm welcome and a lot of tips for our stay there.
Before we arrived, Vinny send me information about how to get to his place en the trains and everything, all in detail!
If You are coming from schonhoven AirPort then his place is so easy to find! Just 1 train!
His place has everything You need! The metro is 5 minutes walking.. Very Nice neighbourhood..! If we are going to Berlin, we hope we can stay again @ Vinny's
Vinny was professional and he sounded very friendly on the phone, explaining things. Home was small but useful and sweet. Nothing was missing, and the bed was comfy. The next door is "Zur Wilden Renate", which is a famous theme club of Berlin. A walk to either Kreuzberg or Boxhagener str in Friedrichshain is lovely from the place.
l'accoglienza di Vinny è stata perfetta! si è dimostrato molto disponibile su tutto e in casa inoltre ci sono un sacco di cose utili per visitare bene la città. L'appartamento è davvero carino con tutto il necessario ed è situato nel quartiere più bello e affascinante della città a due passi dalla stazione della metro. sono stato davvero bene e spero di ritornarci
Vinny fue un gran host. Muy comunicativo desde el principio. Sus indicaciones para llegar a la casa son impecables; es muy dedicado con sus inquilinos. Cuando llegamos se tomó el tiempo de responder nuestras dudas, darnos consejos, y mostrarnos el mapa, el sistema de transporte público, y los mejores lugares para comer. También fue muy comprensivo.
La casa eatá muy bien ubicada, cerca de la estación, supermer ado y lugares para comer.
Lo recomendamos 100%. Viva Vinny!!
Je ne peux que confirmer tous les commentaires élogieux attribués à Vinny!
La communication entre la réservation et l'arrivée a été parfaite! A mon arrivée à l'appartement, Vinny a pris longuement le temps de me détailler sur une carte qu'il m'a généreusement fournie les meilleures attractions de la ville. Il m'a fait me sentir comme à la maison en m'indiquant à maintes reprises que je pouvais disposer de l'appartement à ma guise. L'appartement est propre, parfaitement agencé et dispose de toutes les commodités nécessaires.
Le quartier est idéal pour les amateurs de bars et de vie nocturne!
L'appartement est situé à 7/8 min a pied de la station S-bahn Ostkreuz, il est possible de rallier le centre (Alexanderplatz) en 15 min.
Même si Vinny n'était pas dans l'appartement pendant la durée de mon séjour, il s'est régulièrement enquis de mon confort et s'est tenu à ma disposition pour tout besoin que je pourrais avoir.
Mon seul regret est de n'avoir pas eu l'opportunité de le croiser davantage durant mon séjour.
Lors de mon prochain voyage à Berlin, je retournerai sans hésiter chez Vinny!
Vinny made us feel very welcome and greeted us on arrival with a very informative map with all the cool streets to visit. The listing was accurate to his description it was central to some really cool bars, restaurants and clubs.
It was very clean, nice and quite and cosy. It was only a short 5 min walk to the nearest station. It took only 20 to get to the Reishtag, Brandenburg gate.
Neighborhood was fantastic! Host was super welcoming and incredibly generous for giving up the entire apartment to his guests! Apartment is small but perfect for two and an incredibly reasonable price considering how nice it is. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you for a fantastic stay Vinny!
