About This Listing
Great apartment to stay on the top floor overlooking the park. Free wifi. Good public transportation
Welcome to the Friedrichshain Park! In the heart of Berlin you are looking over the park from the 7th floor. The neighbourhood is lively and diverse. It offers a large selection of cafes, restaurants, bars, culture, nightlife and a colourful street live. The Friedrichshain Park is a popular place for Berliners and tourists to spend some good time in a green oasis in the middle of the city. It is only a couple of steps to the tram and the subway is about 900 meters away.

The bedroom has a king size bed. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need for cooking a meal and has a table with two chairs. Two small balconies with table and chairs are ideal for smokers.

We hebben er genoten in deze Airbnb. Het ligt goed centraal, voor zover dat kan inBerlijn. Er stoppen bussen voor de deur en een tram. Het Alexanderplatz ligt op 10 minuten lopen. De buurt vonden we ook heel leuk. Mooi park aan de overkant van de weg en vlakbij restaurantjes in de wijk Prenzlauerberg.
Het appartement is heel mooi en ruim. Een heerlijk bed. Ook een mooi uitzicht vanaf de 7e verdieping. Op een dag met veel zon is het wel erg warm in het appartement. Je mist dan wel een airco.
Nos gustó mucho el departamento de Ben, aunque no lo conocimos, su asistente estuvo siempre disponible para atender nuestras dudas. El departamento es exacto como en las fotos. Un poco caluroso por la fecha que fuimos y porque es un ático, pero esto se arregla rápidamente al abrir las ventanas. Sólo dos sugerencias: a) instalar un "shower door" ya que cuesta ducharse sin mojar el piso y obliga a sentarse b) evaluar si es necesario cambiar el colchón que ya está muy delgado. Aparte de eso, volveríamos felices a su departamento.
We really loved our stay in Ben's appartment. What you see in the pictures, is exactly what you get: a spacious clean appartment, with everything you need to have a great city trip.
The key was waiting for us in the little shop on the ground floor and with the information we were sent, we had no problems finding the appartment.
As we were big fans of the area Prenzlauer Berg, the location for us really was ideal and the parc just across the street is lovely!
We will definitely be back!
Overall we had a pleasant time and would recommend the apartment.
Ben was very helpful and quick to respond to our booking and our questions. The apartment was clean, cozy and quiet with quick access to public transportation. The area has some really good cafe's and restaurants.
We did have some issues with the plumbing leaking a small amount of water on the floors, but this just meant needing to shut the water off during long periods of unuse (super easy). Also, having to contact a second person over email instead of directly through Airbnb to confirm apartment access was a bit unnerving but in the end everything was fine. Internet wasn't much faster than the 2G we were getting on our phones, but unless you plan on streaming movies, this was not a big deal.
A fantastic apartment with a great view. The flat was very clean and Ben was a very responsive and helpful host.
We had a great time in Berlin. The main thing about the city to know is it's not all in one area - it's spread out and you'll need to take public transport.
The flat is a 15 minute walk or short bus ride to Alexander Platz - a shopping and transport hub which is ideal for getting around. You can also get to the trendy east of berlin by walking along the park and getting a tram to the east side gallery.
the flat is near a lovely park. There is a nice bakery down below, a supermarket nearby and a really good Turkish restaurant around the concern - we didn't go the Italian or Vietnamese but both looked busy.
The apartment is lovely clean and spacious. The balcony is a great thing to have.
We didn't meet the host. The key was left for us to collect. I felt that while we had no problem getting into flat - communication was limited and if you want any information on berlin make sure you do know stuff before hand.
