My stay at Paul's place was fantastic. He made sure he knew what time I was arriving in Berlin, gave me good directions to his place for the cab driver and gave me directions from the airport in case I wanted to take public transport.
He was waiting for me upon arrival. The apartment is exactly as described and photographed. Clean, comfortable, nicely and simply decorated, working WIFI, flatscreen TV with English news channels (important for me). I could also control the temperature of the rooms in the apartment, which is great. I like to have the option of warm & toasty or nice & chilly!
Paul's lovely and appreciated touches include having a pantry of dry goods such as pasta and spices to cook, milk, sparkling water, coffee, tea were all on hand. Plenty of cleaning products as well as bottles of body soaps in the bathroom.
The apartment has a lovely balcony and some plants to give the place a lived in appeal.
His place is also two blocks from the gay area which is perfect.
Schöneberg has been a centre of gay life life since the 1920's and 30's during the Weimar Republic. Otto Dix painted patrons for the cabaret scene on MotzsraBe, Christopher Isherwood lived in the area and which resulted in a a book and later the basis for Cabaret. The great Dietrech grew up in the area as well. In fact a friend of ine was staying in her childhood building.
In fact it's centrally located to pretty much anywhere in Berlin. Steps from the subway & taxi stand.
While it's close to the action, his building is super quiet. Yes! Perfect for my needs. There is an elevator to get to his apartment and a few stairs to negotiate to his apartment.
There is a 24-hour grocery store three blocks away (closed late night Saturday & Sunday! As are many businesses on Sunday in Germany) and a 24h gas station a block over, a dry cleaner and plenty of neighbourhood restaurants / cafes.
Paul checked in regularly via airbnb and was super helpful with information and coming up with solutions for some of my requests.
I would stay here again without hesitation and happily recommend to anyone wishing for a short or long stay in Berlin.
Great apartment, great host, great location! Paul is so welcoming and kind. He provided me with all info I needed in Berlin. the Apartment equipped with all possible facilities, very clean, cosy and welcoming. I needed apartment in the last minute and Paul did his best to supply it even though he had guests who left on the same day. he answered very fast and helped.
The building is clean and the apartment very noiseless.
If you can book this apartment, be sure you gonna enjoy it. I really enjoyed the balcony also, there is nice view there. the apartment located in very central location, near by two supermarkets and of course 7 mins walking till the Ku'damm and KaDeWe area. I wish every time i book an apartment through Airbnb, i would meet somebody like Paul and his apartment. everything he wrote is accurate and correct. next time in Berlin, definitely would like to book it again.
I am very pleased you enjoy Berlin and my Apartment, it was a pleasure to host you both....
Paul ist ein sehr aufmerksamer Gastgeber, dem sehr an dem Wohl seiner Gäste gelegen ist. Er hat uns willkommen geheißen und war immer verfügbar.
Die Wohnung liegt sehr zentral in Schöneberg, von dort aus kommt man leicht an alle Orte, die in Berlin von Interesse sind. Ein guter Ausgangspunkt!
Verhuurder Paul is een geweldige gastheer. Hij communiceerde helder met ons over de precieze locatie en hoe er te komen en overlegde met ons over een passende tijd.
Bij aankomst gaf hij een korte rondleiding door het appartement. Hij had een folder met heldere aanwijzingen over het gebruik van het appartement, maar ook over de mogelijkheden in de buurt, wat betreft winkelen, etc. Ook had hij leuke tips voor ons voor restaurants, kerstmarkten en musea. Hij vroeg hierbij eerst naar waar we van hielden. Geweldig! Er lag een reisgids van de stad klaar en een plattegrond van het openbaar vervoer, die we mochten gebruiken.
Het appartement ligt op de 4e verdieping van een woonblok uit de jaren zestig. Er is een kleine lift. Binnen troffen we een smaakvol ingericht appartement. De keuken had alles wat wij wensen qua serviesgoed en apparatuur. De woonkamer was zeer stijlvol ingericht. In de slaapkamer staat een royaal bed met een goed matras. Er was een ruime badkamer met een douche in het bad, toilet en wastafel . Het dekbed was wat dun, maar hij had al een nieuw besteld. Er was een ruime badkamer met een douche in het bad, toilet en wastafel. Alles was zeer schoon.
Het appartement ligt in de wijk Schoeneberg. Dat is behoorlijk centraal in de stad. Op 200 meter lopen is een bushalte en metrostation Nollendorfplatz ligt op ongeveer 10 minuten lopen.
Kortom een absolute aanrader wat ons betreft.
Paul is a great host who listens and who prepares his property the way you expect it to be prepared. Prior to our arrival I asked him about local grocery stores explaining my kind of specific dietary requirements – he was happy to reply and upon our arrival at his place he got us a few basics such as soya milk and cottage cheeses to get us started in Berlin. The flat itself is exactly as it is presented in the pictures, the heating is very effective and keeps the place as warm as you like when it is chilly outside. The kitchen is well equipped, the bed is super comfortable and you even get a choice of pillows – both with synthetic and natural filling. There’s plenty of storage space to unpack and put away your luggage if you like things nice and tidy. The Apple TV works fine – so feel free to connect your IPad to TV and listen to your favourite radio station – a great perk! The flat is located in a great area with multitude of restaurants and cafes. Schoenberg has been growing less touristy ever since Wall came down, which benefited the area greatly – the standard of restaurants and other public places has improved and acquired more intimate, local feel. Nollendorfplatz station is 5 minutes on foot from the flat – form there you can pretty much get anywhere in Berlin within minutes. A taxi back from Mitte in the middle of the night is approx. 12 euros; taxi back from Berghain in the middle of the night is 16 euro – very affordable. All is all a great experience!
So happy you enjoyed your stay , i look forward to see you again...regards Paul
Paul's flat is the best location to discover West Berlin. Indeed you'll apreciate all the kind attentions of Paul who will give you all the informations about the best things to do and discover in Berlin. Thanks again for everything.
I stayed at Paul's apt. 07-10 NOV 14, for the 25th Anniversary of the Fall of the Wall. Good location in the Schoeneberg district of Berlin, close to the Victoria-Luise Park U-Bahn station. The apt. is well furnished, clean and everything you need is there. Just right for a single or a couple. Plenty of food & drink places in the local area.
The apartment was just beautiful, with a very high standard of amenity. It is in a convenient location and in very close walking distance to beautiful cafes, interesting shops and markets. Paul was a wonderful host, very welcoming and helpful. I would highly recommend his lovely apartment.
A realy good apartment!
Paul was a fantastic host. He meet me at the apartment when I arrived. We had a glass of wine and he wrote down suggestions for places to visit. He even left breakfast items in the fridge for me.
The apartment is close to bars and restaurants in Schöneberg, and a ten minute walk to Nollendorfplatz U-Bahn station. The apartment is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. I highly recommend Paul's flat.
I am pleased you enjoyed my apartment and Berlin. I look forward to host you again..
Paul was very easy to communicate with. My flat was left in perfect conditions and the doors will always be opened for him. Thiago
Paul was a great guest, easy to communicate with and my flat was left in perfect conditions. The door is always opened for him. Thiago
I have known Paul for far more years than I would like to admit to. He is one of those rare breed that is great fun, kind, considerate and an all round thoroughly decent human guy. Now that he is in Berlin and I am in Spain we rarely get to see each other, however we are in constant contact and I hope to come and visit soon. If you get the opportunity to sample his hospitality you will not be disappointed, so have a great trip and enjoy Berlin!
Paul is one great guy to be around, I met him 9 years ago but it always feels that I have know him all my life. A great artist and a true english gentleman, I never miss a chance to spend time with him when I visit Berlin or to catch up whenever we are on holiday around the world. On top of that he is also a great cook. I am proud to introduce him to all my other friends, they usually want to see more of him. You will enjoy his hospitality and central location in Berlin.
I have known Paul for 7 years as a friend and a business collaborator and can recommend him hugely as a host. His training in the hospitality industry has always shown through even on the most casual occasions - attention to detail, care with individual requirements, generosity of time and attention are only the first of the qualities which he would bring to your stay in Berlin.
I have met Paul when I lived with him two years ago, and he is an awesome persone, perfect host and good people. The flat is also perfect situated, in the heart of the vibrant city of Berlin, and he will help you to enjoy so much the stay.
Don't hesitate and stay with Paul! He is a great cook, too ;)
I met Paul in Key West while we were visiting a mutual friend. I felt comfortable with him immediately. We had a wonderful time and he invited me to visit his very classy, regal and exquisitely furnished flat on Sloan St. in Knightsbridge, London. He treated me like I was the Queen of England and I only met him once in person. Paul is a wonderful host, very considerate, warm and knows hospitality! I highly recommed anything Paul hosts--be it a flat, a party or an event! Since then, and I've known him now 15 years, he has visited me several times in the States. I can say he is an equally wonderful, low maintenance guest! We have been great friends 15 years now. Paul's generosity and warmth make the entire host/guest experience an event you won't want to miss! Do stay with Paul!
Paul is wonderful hosts with a warm charismatic personality. He is very welcoming, sincere, kind and considerate of his guest's needs or requests. He is a amazing cook and perfect companion. A friend how is always for you there.
Ich habe Freunde für ein Wochenende bei Paul untergebracht. Er hat sich liebevoll um die Gäste gekümmert und Ihnen bei Bedarf Empfehlungen über das kulturelle Angebot der Stadt sowie fürs Berliner Nachtleben gegeben. Die Wohnung ist sehr zentral im Bezirk Schöneberg gelegen. Das Appartement ist sehr gepflegt und mit Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet. Viele Bars und Clubs sind fußläufig erreichbar. Paul ist ein hervorragender Gastgeber. Er bereitet ein leckeres Frühstück für seine Gäste. Zusammenfassend eine wirkliche Empfehlung im Herzen Berlins. Ich würde immer wieder Freunde dort unterbringen.
I have known paul for about 20 years and he is a great host , I have been to many functions held by him and they are always that bit special, he takes extra care and attention in his great catering and hosting skills. I am sure if you stay at his place you will be really welcome and feel comfortable.
Paul is not only a good host, but also a friend. You really feel at home at his place and he does everything to make you feel comfortable. Ideally located to explore gay night life.
