Interaction with Guests
I live on the premises and am readily available for any assistance or a simple chat.
Locality: The studio is situated on the sunny first floor loft of a 1890's mixed residential/commercial building at a lively main street near Kottbusser Tor; a stylishly renovated former "Kaffeehaus" in the middle of the vibrant cosmopolitan "Kreuzkoelln" neighborhood, the creative area connecting Kreuzberg and Neukoelln. Within walking distance are numerous cafes/restaurants/clubs, art spaces and institutions like Kuenstlerhaus Bethanien, the BBK Print Facilities and Media Studios, Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien and NGBK.
The U-8 tube stops right at the doorstep, as does the N8 Nightbus . It is a short walk from U-Bahnhof Kottbusser Tor (Metro LIne U1 reaches areas like Friedrichshain and Schöneberg within 15 minutes). At Kottbusser Tor you'll find a taxi stand as well.
Other Things to Note
We welcome long term inquiries by professional artists/creative industry and are happy to discuss special rates.
I had the best in this room in this apartment in this neighborhood. I can really recommend it and hopefully I will be back.
Paul's place was great. So spacious and nicely decorated, with everything you could possibly need (an espresso machine in the room!!). The location is also great - very easy to get to all different parts of Berlin and lots of great things to explore in the neighbourhood as well.
Paul was a great host and his space is delightful. A comfortable, warm, beautifully furnished spacious room with everything we could ever want. Paul didn't have a problem staying up to meet us late, and was always on hand to help us with anything we needed. Somos is an incredible space, and perfectly situated in the best area of Berlin. We were made to feel extremely welcome throughout our stay. We'll be back soon!
Das Zimmer ist super und genau so wie auf den Fotos. Paul und seine Mitbewohner sind sehr freundlich und kümmert sich um alles. Das Zimmer ist in bester Lage, die U-Bahn gleich unten an der Strasse. Wir haben uns richtig wohl gefühlt und kommen bestimmt wieder!
GREAT location, right next to the U-bahn, bars, cafe's, restaurants and a nightshop. The room is big, high ceilings. Bed has a foam mattress and has two separate blankets. The only bad thing is that the iphone input didn't work on the soundsystem and the shower is made of wood. The shower itself is lukewarm and huge.
Paul rents out 3 rooms in a huge apartment thats 50% gallery and 50% livingroom.
If you are looking for a place to stay in Berlin, just take a look at Paul's place. It's cool, clean, cosy and quiet.
The room is very beautiful and comfortable, with vintage design furniture.
The welcome was excellent and the ambient in the art house was great.
We truly recommend everyone to stay at SomoS with Paul.
Es war alles super! Paul hat uns alles gezeigt, wie das alles funktioniert, seine Mitbewohner waren auch super nett und hilfsbereit.

We have newly renovated guest rooms available at our new art center right in the middle of the lively cosmopolitan neighborhood dubbed "Kreuzkoelln", the creative area connecting Kreuzberg and Neukoelln. The studios are suitable for art lovers or creative persons that appreciate spacious surroundings and a creative atmosphere that allows for communication and interaction as well as introspection, productivity, relaxation and privacy.
Together, we have lovingly built our art house in a historic loft that has seen use as billiard salon, Kaffeehaus and cinema. It comprises ateliers and guest rooms, and a large salon/lobby/kitchen area. At our large gallery space, we set up exhibitions, organize workshops, screenings, talks and such. If they wish, our guests can take part in any event, or even talk to us about setting up one themselves if needed.
I work as an artist, curator and general director of our art house, after founding and managing an art space in Friedrichshain for the last four years. I have been doing such work for quite a while already, having shown my art around the world; setting up art enclaves, and immersing myself in Berlin's creative and underground scenes from the pre-Wall Kreuzberg to post-Wall Mitte and beyond.
Sharing my experience and knowledge is a pleasure to me, and I shall be happy to give you tips or advice while staying here.
