About this listing
Experience the city from Kastanienallee, one of the most trendy areas in Berlin. It's bohemian buzz, worldwide cuisine and cultural scene make it a perfect location for hanging around as well as a starting point for sightseeing.
Your sunny room overviews Kastanienallee with it's chestnuts trees. It's 20 sqm and 3.5 m high, equipped with bed (160x200), wardrobes, desk, basic dishes and drinks, free Wifi. Room has a great lighting and gives a cosy, very private space for 2 people.
For some reason "Kastanienallee" brings on: WOW! We like to think it's because of it's own charm and unique neighbourhood (Kollwitz Platz, Papelallee, Mauerpark), tasty&fresh food, exotic or organic take-away, old school cinema (Lichtblick), yoga studios, walking, jogging and biking places. Cool venues, vibrant markets, outstanding boutiques, vinyl shops, green squares, etc. give you a wide range of possibilities how to spend time. Come along and have a taste of it!
And who we are? Just a quiet couple of easy going, freelancers, busy with their things and respecting your privacy. However whenever you need it, we will be always happy to give you advice on where to go and what to do in Berlin or simply keep you company.
Please write a few words about yourself.
I look forward to your visit!

The room and the flat are very beautiful, tidy and comfortable. The flat are well located, near many options of public transport, and in a very nice neighbourhood with great stores and restaurants and a very beautiful park. A great experience!
To stay at Joannas' and Heyos' place was the best decision I could have possibly made! Their appartment and the athmosphere - of the place itself, as well as of the entire neighborhood - were both a JACKPOT! The room was (at least!) as pretty, neat and clean as shown on the photos, and Heyo (I didn't get to meet Joanna, for she was abroad while I was visiting) was a perfect host: friendly, pleasant, helpful (e.g. he gave me great advice where to go for breakfast), very respectful, trustworthy and kind!
This was the fist time I used airbnb - and I will definitely never book a Hotel again, in my Life! It was great to stay with Heyo and Joanna and I am definitely planning to stay with them, again, if possible! :-D
THANK YOU, Heyo & Joanna! ^^
Joanna was away during our stay, but Heyo was very friendly and we were welcomed by their friend Elisabeth.
The apartment is very well located.. on a lively street full of restaurants and bars, and very close to the UBahn. The room was very clean and comfortable, and it was bigger than we had expected.
Our stay was short and sweet, but we enjoyed Berlin and were able to get a good night's sleep at Joanna & Heyo's place :)
Das Zimmer liegt sehr zentral in der Kastanienalle mit vielen Restaurants und kleinen Läden. Joanna hat sich schon im Vorfeld regelmäßig mit uns in Verbindung gesetzt und alles für unser Ankunft geregelt, weil sie selber nicht da war. Ihr Freund sollte uns in Empfang nehmen, musste aber kurzfristig familiär bedingt verreisen. Joanna sorgte für einen netten Ersatz. Alles war sehr sauber und ordentlich. Die Straße selber ist recht laut, v.a. wegen der Straßenbahn. Der Kühlschrank kann mitgenutzt werden. Es gibt W-LAN in der Wohnung. Wir würden jederzeit wieder dort übernachten!
This location was very serviceable. It's very near Prater Garten, which was a really cool place to see. It's not the easiest to get from place to place from here though. The bathroom was okay but there were a lot of rules in relation to the bathroom.
房東的聯繫與房源位置的說明都很好. 房間的狀況及使用情形也都符合房源的介紹. 我們在這平順的住了兩晚, 交通方便,房間環境很整潔,室內也很安靜, 但是, 窗外緊臨街道, 夜裡會有電車和喝酒暄鬧聲,我們容易入睡, 還好對我們影響不大.
A lovely room to stay in within a great location! Explored a whole new area in Berlin because of this! Also the host (Heyo) was welcoming and real helpful with anything we needed.

About the Host, Joanna
Berlin was supposed to be just one of the spots, a short term destination on my vast travelling map, I followed a couple of years ago. However, it was not long until the enchanting energy of the city simply made me settle in. Here I am, among the others who gave in: floating, taking and giving, loving (sometimes hating) and constantly developing.
Just step off the bitten track so that you could see and sense the real gem, that Berlin indeed is. Sit at the one of bohemian cafés, read or watch and listen! Poke around tiny boutiques and flea markets, just for sake of poking. Take a peek at tiny workshops of any kind, where you can discreetly observe the birth of handicraft. Treat yourself with a massive cup of frozen yoghurt and hang around the parks. There you can put your feet up on the grass and let yourself being lulled by a hang drum musician every now and then...
My everyday life is joyfully devoted Lomi Lomi Nui, the powerful Hawaiian massage, my greatest passion as well as hard work. The great blend of circumstances let me grow in the strength and wisdom of simplification. I love eating and being in motion, I follow my intuition and everything which harmonizes with, I love to savour life!
