The Space

Welcome to our two room Berlin style apartment! The apartment is 55 SQ meter and is located in the heart of Berlin: in the fascinating district Wedding/Mitte. The neighberhood reminds you of the famous pulsing Kreuzberg within the 80ies. Turkish stores, shishabars and movie centers as well as modern art galleries and innovative off theatres are shaping the atmosphere of this district. Students, artists, old- and new Berliners are creating that dynamic and unique Berlin vibe.
Your daily choice of meal gets to a fascinating experience on its own. Within that neighboorhood you have the offer of every kind of restaurant (from vegan to Ethiopian food) to very affordable prices. Supermarkets and so called Spätis (small shops for grocery and things for everyday life usually open 24/7) are also all over nearby.
Trainline 6 is reachable per feet in five minutes. The subway brings you directly within 10 min. to the historical centre of Berlin (Friedrichstr.). Busses are also stopping in front of the apartment. They will take you to Hauptbahnhof within 5 minutes or to Tegel airport within 15 minutes.

The apartment is typical for the turn of the century architecture: high ceilings, big rooms and nice wooden floors. The apartment appears very bright and spacious. The apartment is located in a rear house. You will have a view on the nice and clean garden and won't hear any noise from the street.
The atmosphere of the living room is calm and invites you to a relaxing gathering at the same time. At least three people can sit on the comfortable sofa bed and either watch a movie on the flatscreen TV.
We tried to equipped the kitchen very thoroughly so that you won't miss anything.
The bedroom offers a queen size bed which is, as well as the mattress, brand new.
The toilet is separated from the shower. The shower is located in the rear part of the kitchen. Internet access is available and included in price. Fresh towels and bedding is also included in price.

Check In
  • we actually did not meet Ben. we had a magor problem while we reached Berlin and the appartment was'nt ready for us, and the key haven't been in place. we contacted Monika who told us that they are on the way to clean and prepare the appartment. instead of getting the key at 14:00 as schedule - we recieved the key at around 17:00.

    Beside that problem and the strange fact that the shower is acyually in the kitchen - the appartment is nice, clean, large and the location is close enoght to U-Bahn (5-10 min walk) but not in the city-center.
    they were nice enoght to let us late check-out since we had a late flight.

  • The apartment is really nice, lots of space and well furnished. Nice TV / audio set, and well equipped kitchen. There was even some basic things, like salt, oil, rice, tea...
    The building is not taken care of properly, you ca quickly notice it when you're climbing the stairs to the 3rd floor. Some neighbors may be too noisy at times, and being close to the airport adds some airplane engines in the background if you leave the windows open.
    I've never seen Ben, nor even talk to him. I strongly suspect he's robot of some kind.
    I've tried to stay a couple of days more and contacted him via airbnb but he answered with a pre-formated answer giving another contact that also couldn't reach.

    Overall, given its price its really worth it.

  • Eine tolle Wohnung mit typischem Berliner Chame. Sie war sehr sauber und ideal für einen Kurztrip nach Berlin :) Das Ein- und Auschecken war ebenfalls kein Problem.
    Gerne also wieder! :)

  • BEN's apartment is one of our best stay, it's fully equipped ( if there's a washing machine it'd even be totally perfect! ), the neighborhood is quiet yet with loads of supermarket nearby. Though we didn't get to see Ben, the whole key exchange process was exciting (feels like a bit playing treasure hunt...) yet safe, smart. Recommended.

  • Easy to find. Accomodating when we wished to check in early. Nice warm appartment with comfortable bed and sofa bed.

  • Gute Unterkunft, hat alles reibungslos geklappt. Einziger Schönheitsfehler: das Geschirr/Besteck war schmutzig, ansonsten top.

a little bit of this and a little bit of that.
Hello Airbnb community My name is Ben, and I live in Berlin Kreuzberg. I am originally from Berlin but spent the second half of my life in the United States.
