The pictures do not do justice to this flat as it is even more stylish, spacious and comfortable than it seems. It is in Neukolln, up and coming area with excellent bars and restaurants nearby in Richardstrasse and Weserstrasse. Our host was Lizzi, Elke's sister, and tere is no way you would not have an authentic experience of Berlin when staying with her: friendly and extremely knowledgeable, her tips were all spot on, with very clear instructions on transport, access and pricing. Not only was she so welcoming, she was also very organised, with the key handover, house instructions and facilities all organised in advance.
The flat is close to Herrmannplatz and Rathaus Neukoln for the U-bahn, with easy access to Schonefeld airport as well as via bus to nearby also trendy Kreuzberg. The nearby canal is also a great walk and is around a 15 minute walk from the flat.
The flat is clean, well decorated and with a lovely cat to boot. If you are allergic I would not recommend staying as the Mr is around te house all the time. If you are not allergic, he will definitely add to your experience as he is one of the cuddliest cats I have ever met - and a gorgeous one too.
All in all, top marks.
Séjour très agréable chez Lizzie, appartement spacieux, très propre, et bien situé ! Lizzie a été très accueillante, joyeuse, et nous a bien orientés dans la découverte de Berlin (bars, parcs, clubs, lieux touristiques...). Beaucoup de liberté dans l'appartement, tout était parfait !
In the hot weather, a rare occasion in Berlin, we felt very welcomed in Elke and Tammy's cool house. Elke recommended us a lot of nice affordable places to eat, drink and go clubbing in the neighbourhood. After the warm days and long nights the apartment was a nice and quiet place to come home to.
ce logement est tel que sur l'annonce : bien situé dans Berlin , convivial et propre , en résumé idéal pour y séjourner quelques nuits.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und kommen gerne wieder! Liebste Grüße, Pia&Jan
Elke and Tammy were great hosts. Top location, but also quiet. Room was comfortable as was the bed. Would definitely recommend for those looking for a good and cheap place in Neu Kölln!
Our experience with Elke was Fantastic! She has great knowledge of the city and took the time to provide us with maps and recommend some amazing places to eat and party. The room we stayed in was very cozy and clean and the whole place is decorated nicely. Location is 10 minutes away from the metro station and close to many bars and cafes. I recommend this place for anyone visiting Berlin especially for the first time. Thank you Elke hope to see you again :)
