The neighbourhood is a combination of all sides of Berlin. It's full of life + the streets have everything you need to have a great stay in Berlin.

Our house has a landscaped courtyard for being outside + for the smokers among us. I am also a 'bed lover' so you can expect a great + comfortable one in this apartment.

lovely flat, well connected to town via public transport. I did not meet Trudy but people who picked up/left the keys were very friendly and handover was efficient and well organised. Definitely recommended.
Le logement est tout à fait à l'image des photos, d'une propreté exemplaire! Il y a tout ce qu'il faut pour la cuisine et beaucoup de détails très sympathiques, comme des coussins pour la terrasse, des parapluies, etc. Notez que c'est un logement qui fait partie d'un courtage d'appartement et non l'appartement d'un locataire. Par ailleurs, l'organisation a pensé à l'huile d'olive, le vinaigre balsamique, le sucre, un peu de café, sel, poivre, quelques épices. Personne ne verra Trudy parce qu'elle donne des contrats pour la visite, les clés, etc. Notez que nous avions l'appartement no 1 , donc au rez-de-chaussée mais à l'arrière du bâtiment et non sur la voie publique, donc tranquille. Mais on entend le métro passé en sourdine, rien pour nous empêcher de dormir mais si vous avez le sommeil léger, cela pourrait vous embêter. Notez que Trudy gère plusieurs appartements dans le bloc, donc vous pouvez explorer différentes possibilités. Il n'y a pas d'ascenseur et il y a 7 étages (avec des appartements avec des hauts plafonds) ce qui veut dire que vous devrez être en forme ;) Sinon, c'est une bonne location. Et la concierge Janet fait un travail remarquable!
Sylvie is correct that where she stayed was one of 8 of my apartments that are all in the one building. I own the whole house & have renovated all the flats, made the cosy garden & renovated the entrance, staircase etc. The house has 4 floors plus a rooftop apartment.
So things can run as smoothly as they do I have great people cleaning & helping with the check-ins etc. I don't live in any of the apartments myself but I am around the house often & do have the pleasure of meeting many of my wonderful guests :)
Unfortunately I didn't get to meet Sylvie thou.
Our stay was wonderful. We were met exactly at 2 p.m., as promised, and given the keys and a tour of the apartment and lovely courtyard. The apartment was exactly as pictured. Everything is in tip-top shape and immaculate. There was everything we needed to cook along with a washing machine and plenty of extras (shampoo, toilet paper, laundry detergent, towels, etc.)
The bed is comfortable, and the shower is great. Everything worked well. The inside of the building was very cool, even on nearly 100-degree days, and very quiet in spite of being on a busy street.
The courtyard was especially appreciated - a shared space where we ate a dinner, several breakfasts, and also met a lovely group of women from London on a Berlin museum and gallery weekend together.
We would definitely stay again.
First stay in an AirBnb and it could not have gone better.vThe handing over of keys was so easy and the place was exactly as described. Everything was so clean and tidy. Location was right in the heart of Neukollen with the U Bahn a minutes walk away plus all other amenities such as a supermarket, restaurants, bars etc very close.
We will definitely be staying here again.
Thanks for a wonderful stay in Berlin.
The (already good) photos don't do the apartment justice - it's lovely. Located in a really convenient position, outfitted with every possible mod con and quiet, this was just the best place to relax during our time in Berlin.
Trudy met us at the door and took us through everything, she was really welcoming and lovely.
Will definitely return here if we come again, thank you.
Nice quiet place, clean and well located and fully equipped for a short or long stay. However, travelers should note that it was not possible to leave luggage after check out - Alexanderplatz (the nearest locker location) has limited storage options (they were all full), which means that the Hauptbahnhof is one of the only other options.

About the Host, Trudy
I am an Australian Berliner! I have been living in Berlin for over 10 years + having studied Architecture in Perth W.A took to the great apartments Berlin has to offer.
I have great people working for me, I have a 'thing' about good beds so if you want a good comfy bed on your travels I have only great ones!
I have a collection of apartments spread around the city and hence have people to help me have everything run smoothly. I don't live in the apartments myself. I have renovated them all thou and they are my personal property.
My apartments are of a hotel style with empty wardrobes etc. and no cosmetic collections filling the bathrooms. We have white hotel linen and towels freshly delivered and professional cleaning :)
