About this listing
My just renovated 62 sq.m. apartment is located on the first floor in old building in a silent and green courtyard a few steps from the beautiful Landwehrkanal at the border between Nord Neukölln and Berlin-Kreuzberg.
The apartment has high ceilings, wooden floor, fully equipped kitchen with gas stove, electric oven, boiler, toaster, coffe machine, moka machine, ironing board and iron bathroom with shower, a 160/200 double bed, a 90/200 single bed and a cozy 160/200 bedsofa, washing machine and dishwasher.
Free Wifi, TV with DVD player, radio. Fresh towels and fresh bed sheets are included. On demand computer, baby cot and bikes (6€ per day).
Final cleaning is 30€. We can offer you an extra cleaning during your stay for, 10€ per hour. In the apartment you'll find several information about Berlin, maps and guides and if there is anything missing, just let me know and I will try my best to take care of it. I live in the same building.
Public parking is available just in front of the building.
The apartment is located in the trendy scene rising at the border of Kreuzberg and Nord Neukölln (known as Kreuzkölln) in the middle of the multicultural Berlin scene. Few meter away from the charming Landwehrkanal. “Kreuzköln” is now really booming, with bars, cafes, galleries and restaurants opening almost every week.
The attractive Turkish takes place every Tuesday and Friday along the Canal where you can buy fresh vegetables, fish, meat or eating a delicious kebab watching one of the canal-side live jam sessions.
Three parks are within walking distance (including the former Historical Airport Berlin Tempelhof).
You will find all the public transportation that you need in order to get through Berlin. In 2 minutes walk you can reach the metro station U8, U7 and Bus M29 (which is quite special because it passes by the Jewish Museum, Checkpoint Charlie, the Martin Gropius Bau, Potsdamer Platz, the New National Gallery and the KuDamm).
There are many super markets in the area (Edeka, Lidl, Aldi, Karstadt in Hermanplatz (10 min away) a Bio LPG, many kiosks open all night long and many bakeries (one in the building!) cafes and a variety of international restaurants, for each taste and every budget.
Within walking distance from the apartment there are also design shops, vintage stores, book shops, galleries and boutiques.
The atmosphere in the streets of the multicultural neighborhood is very cozy, friendly and alive, much more real and beautiful of other parts of the city.
Here you can experience the real Berlin nightlife in bars and clubs, all in within walking distance: Weserstraße, Hobrechtstrasse, Ohlauerstrasse, Reichenbergerstrasse and Kottbussertor. And during the summer Club Der Visionäre and Badeschiff are really close.
There are lots of cinemas in the area that screen film in original language (many even open-air).
I'm sure you'll love it!
Other Things to Note
Information for visitors on Berlin’s hotel occupancy tax
What is being taxed?
As of 1 January 2014, the federal state of Berlin will collect a hotel occupancy tax on all overnight stays in hotels in Berlin. A “hotel” includes any type of short-term, paid accommodation, and the tax is due whether or not the hotel guest actually spends the night in the room.
If a room is reserved, but the guest cancels the reservation before arrival, the occupancy tax is not charged.
Who is liable for the tax?
The hotel is responsible for collecting the tax and passing it on to the federal state of Berlin.
How much is the tax?
The occupancy tax is 5% of the price of the hotel room (without extras, such as meals, items from the minibar, the use of hotel services and facilities not included in the room price, etc.).
AT THE CHECK IN YOU WILL BE ASKED TO PAY THE BERLIN TAX IN CASH .
THE BERLIN TAX IS THE 5% OF THE PRICE YOU PAID WITHOUT THE AIRBNB COMMISSION AND THE FINAL CLEANING. IF YOU ARE COMING TO BERLIN FOR WORKING REASON OR STAYING IN BERLIN FOR MORE THEN 3 WEEKS DON'T HAVE TO PAY IT.
We stayed at Carla's apartment in July 2015 for a long weekend. Carla is a great host; quick to respond to messages and we were able to check in easily at the time agreed. We didn't have much cause to interact once we arrived, because everything worked perfectly and the apartment was absolutely as described. Although it is possibly bigger than it appears in the photos! The apartment is in a great neighbourhood, with so many great places to eat and drink (several are just a few footsteps from the entrance to the apartment building). We would wholeheartedly recommend this apartment to friends and family who were interested in visiting Berlin.
We were met by Carla's assistant for check in. But found that Carla had changed the apt ( for the 3rd time same building though) with out any consultation. This was disappointing. The apt was in a great location for us. Close to buses, u Bahn, cafes. Very vibrant area. The apt was adequate- clean and tidy. Although a washing machine was supplied there was no drying rack. Although we were disappointed with the changed arrangements we enjoyed our Berlin stay.
The place was easy to find and Carla was super flexible in arranging key collection.
Great neighborhood- close to metro station.
The apartment is clean and convenient. Everything you could need is there.
I spent two months in Carla's flat. The flat itself is very pleasant: clean, modern, and generally civilized. The neighborhood also very pleasant, though being at the Kreuzkoelln boundary, it is for different reasons: nice cafes, the nearby canal, and a relaxed atmosphere.
Carla herself was very helpful and attentive. Things mostly just worked, however, so we spent not too much time together. I would definitely recommend the flat to others, and will check here again when I'm next in Berlin.
Everything was perfect! I really enjoyed my stay and would definitely book it again! Can't recommend this apartment enough: Great area, very clean, lovely furnishing, includes washing and dishing machine, quiet (in the backhouse), the host is very responsive..
Maybe the only thing I would have to point out: The Wifi is extremely slow.
Other than that: Loved my stay!
We had a very Nice week in Berlin. The location is perfect!! We found exactly what we expected. The flat was great & clean. Carla answered all our questions. Try it!
Very nice apartment located in center of Kreuzberg.
Room was very clean and nice neighbours.
Owner is very kind and supported us when we had any questions.
Walk to all nice cafes and big parks around.
