About This Listing
A flat situated in the coolest area in Berlin - in the heart of Mitte district!
...just a minutes walk away from major public transport node Alexanderplatz - but still situated in a quiet little street with a majestic view of Volksbühne theatre and the surrounding greens as soon as you step out of the house.
Virtually everything is just around the corner: Great restaurants of all kinds, breakfast cafés, boutiques, flagship stores as well as Berlin designers or second hand shops. An off-cinema with longstanding tradition and also one of the best-known theatres of town are in the same street and Hackescher Markt, Unter den Linden, museum island as well as the gallery streets August- & Brunnenstraße are just some minutes to walk.
I do indicate fixed check-in and check-out times, these are anyway flexible and only apply if someone has booked for the day in question. Even if, there is always a solution to e.g. store your luggage if you are flying home late on your check-out day...
THE WHITE ROOM
Very quiet bedroom facing east for morning sun. Queensize bed and space in the wardrobe - hangers & shelves, two standard-sized blanket as well as several fresh bed linen. Also with heavy velvet curtains to shut out the light for day-naps :)
West-oriented room with a big comfy couch that can sleep another person (not an extendable sleeping couch, but a normal couch with larger dimensions). In case you are three persons, a self-inflating guestbed is also available, and it is very comfy! A third blanket and pillow plus sheets are available, too.
Luxury flatscreen TV,
Hi-fi system (CD, cassette, cinch-cable for connection to pc/cellphone).
Furthermore there is a great fireplace in bed- as well as livingroom, that can be used in the winter (there is central heating aswell, of course).
The kitchen is very well equipped, with a large fridge and freezer, gas stove and an extensive assortment of dishes and kitchen utensils. There is a Pavoni espresso machine and a grinder, a bar-style breakfast table for 3 and a lot of machinery (toaster, boiler, blender)
The bathroom is small but light, with a bathtub and all kinds of frills - hairdryer, laundry hanger, and of course fresh towels are included.
In the hall, there is a wardrobe with space for jackets.
Furthermore there is a vacuum, a painting easel, lots of books on fine arts, philosophy, novels.
The flat has been completely renovated several years ago and features a beautiful wooden floor in a nice honey-shade in all rooms except kitchen/bathroom.
Kitchen aswell as bathroom are also brand new, as i had them replaced last year.
Free Wifi is also included of course.
The flat is situated on the 3rd floor of a beautiful house - a protected monument built in the late 20ies by known architect Hans Poelzig.
As i live in Berlin for 8 years now, having lived in various parts of town, I am happy to help you out with anything regarding the city - whether you're into culture, food, relaxing or partying... Of course i will leave my extensive selection of Berlin-culture&food-related magazines (english as well as german ones) in the flat.
and finally.... Feel at home!
Like everyone who loves their flat and interiors, I expect you to treat my flat and stuff with respect. But fortunately my experiences with subletting so far have been very positive! If anything breaks, it is not the end of the world, but please inform me straight away!
As there is a (very relaxed) family living one floor below, music in the flat should be moderate during late hours.
Mira's flat was a perfect place for us during our time in Berlin. The apartment is super clean, equipped with everything you need, full of light and has lots of character. Mira made sure we were well taken care of, and was a great host. The neighbourhood is lovely, safe, and quiet, and also very central. We would for sure come back the next time we are in Berlin!
Great location close to everything you may want to do in Mitte. Shops, restaurants, cafes, clubs and public transport are all at hand. Big enough for three people. Communication was easy. Clean. Recommended.
Nice stay in Mira's flat, it is well situated and quiet. A good time in Berlin, as always with holidays... : too short.
I stayed here with 2 other people for a week and it was great! Just like in the pictures--it's nice n cozy and decked out with awesome art and books. We slept comfortably with 2 in the bed and one on the couch. The location is perfect if you are traveling and want to stay central. I would describe the area as the NY Soho of Berlin- cute shops and cafe's nearby. Mira is a doll- easy going and responsive. She left a map for us on the table with handwritten notes on good places to eat, have coffee, and go out at night (all 5 star recommendations- she knows her stuff!). Would highly recommend.
Il nostro soggiorno a Berlino è stato molto piacevole e la casa di Mira un'ottimo punto di partenza per i nostri giri turistici...il quartiere offre molte comodità, negozi e caffè e Alexander platz è raggiungibile a piedi...L'accoglienza è stata perfetta e l'appartamento aveva tutte le comodità: cucina ben allestita, letto comodo, la possibilità di regolare il riscaldamento, molto apprezzata, considerato che le prime giornate di gennaio sono state molto fredde...grazie a Mira per tutto!.. Il giorno del check-out ci ha permesso, con gran comodità, di lasciare l'appartamento al momenti di recarci all'aeroporto.
That was absolutely right choice to stay in Mira's flat. Really. Very comfortable at the same time real Berlin style as we think. Mira gave us info about everything at all in every detail. Thanks a lot Mira. Without doubt we will search for opportunity to stay here again.
Schöne Wohnung in schöner Lage, fast um die Ecke vom Alexanderplatz! Übergabe hat wunderbar geklappt, vielen Dank! Alles war sauber und fein, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.

About the Host, Mira
(deutsch weiter unten)
i am Mira, living in Leipzig since one year and in Berlin for 8 years now - in various parts of town, now having found my dream flat in central Mitte district. You'll be able to rent it quite regularly now, cause i won't be around much.
Further... i've studied philosophy and economics, worked in innovation management for 3 years - and am currently leading a hostel start-up in Leipzig.
One of my favorite relaxation techniques is building something for the flat or throwing old stuff out, so the interior is in constant change ;)
I also love cooking with/for friends, a nice wine but also typical berlin doings like techno clubs or breakfast at 6 pm.
Cheers & see you soon!
p.s.: if you need a bike, let me know straight away - so i can put the key in place. I don't ask for extra money, but some coins are appreciated ;)
ich bin Mira, wohne seit einem Jahr in Leipzig und seit 8 Jahren in Berlin - und habe in dieser Zeit einige Viertel ausprobiert & vor einem Jahr meine Traumwohnung in Mitte gefunden.
Diese könnt ihr nun mieten, da ich in nächster Zeit häufig nicht da sein werde (pendele nach Leipzig).
Ansonsten... hab ich Philosophie und VWL studiert und 3 Jahre im Innovationmanagement gearbeitet. Momentan führe ich ein Hostel Start-up in Leipzig und verbringe dort viel Zeit.
Ich relaxe am liebsten dabei, irgendetwas neues für die Wohnung zu bauen, daher ist das Interior in stetem Wandel ;)
Ausserdem koche ich ziemlich gerne mit/für Freunde, und schätze guten Wein aber auch echte berliner Tätigkeiten wie Technoclubs oder Frühstück um 18h..
viele Grüße & vielleicht bis bald!
Achja - falls ihr mein Fahrrad braucht, während ihr in Berlin seid, sagt bei der Buchung gleich bescheid, damit ich den Schlüssel hinlege. Extrageld will ich dafür nicht, freue mich aber über einen Zehner Spende ;)
