Hey, I'm 31-year old German woman living in Berlin but travelling a lot. I work as a project manager in the creative industrie and I like to sing.
We've been staying a long weekend at Katharinas place. It is located on a big road with a cable car. We chose the location since we love Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg and you are within walkdistance to great cafes, restaurants etc. Unfortunatley there is a huge construction going on and the whole facade, inner backyard and staircase are being refurbished. This leads to a lot of dust in the whole apartment and scaffolding outside the balcony and windows so you can't use the balcony or look outside.
Please see my other feedback.
Katharina was nice, flexible, very supportive and helpful. The flat is great as in the announce. Unfortunately the scaffolding and the work undergoing on the building facade makes the flat full of dust. A problem it will not last for long.
We stayed a full month in Katharina's apartment in the heart of Prenzlauer Berg. The place is great and the location is perfect right in the middle of an area with nice shops and restaurant.
We had some minor hick ups concerning the internet connection and power supply in the bathroom but Katharina took immediate care. There is some construction work going around the house but apart from a little noise one morning and a messy hallway this wasn't any problem. So this place is definitely worth renting a short or long while!
This is a really cool flat in a really great location! As others mentioned it's not for neat-freaks but for us the charm of the place more than made up for it. The construction in the building (and in the flat next door) was not unreasonably loud; the balcony was unusable due to the construction but that was also not a big deal. Katharina was responsive when I needed help with the WiFi and we had no other issues. I would definitely recommend this flat if you are a bit artsy yourself and want to stay in Prenzlauer Berg.
Also, for great cafés close by you can head either towards Kollwitzplatz (super-gentrified) or towards Helmholtzplatz (gentrifying now, still funky), or of course walk up to Eberswalder Str. and so on. Very good location for getting around the city.
Enjoyed staying in this apartment. Katharina was a super communicative host and made sure everything went smoothly. The internet is fast and reliable and everything you could need is provided in the apartment. The location is very convenient for walking to local eating and shopping. You can also transfer to any train or bus by the M2/M10 trams right outside to pretty much anywhere in Berlin.
Superb apartment, served the exact purpose we needed which was to have a base for our stay. Beautifully kept, clean and quirky, a delightful place. Perfect for getting into the centre and a good amount of things to do locally too. Highly recommended for those who wish to explore Berlin. Katharina is the perfect host and was fantastic in giving us advice and tips for our stay.
Katharina was the perfect host! We had a really nice time in her spacious apartment. We had the whole place to ourselves so it was the perfect place from which we could discover the real Berlin. The neighborhood was lovely with lots of restaurant and coffee bars just a few minutes away. Many thanks to Katharina for letting us stay in her apartment.
All in all the stay was (almost) perfect! Katharina is a very friendly and uncomplicated host. The apartment was very nice, clean and perfectly prepared for our stay. The only little thing about the stay was, that there is/was a builidng site in all the other apartments in the house. It would be good to have this information in the apartment-description. But all in all Katharina and her apartment are highly recommendable for a nice stay in Berlin.
very nice appartment in a great location!
everything worked out really well - perfect place in berlin!
Katharina stayed in our apt in Andorra for 2 nights. Unfortunately, I didn't have the occasion to meet them but they were good guests and left the place in good condition.
nous avons eu plaisir à recevoir katharina et dereck, ce sont des gens tres agréables
Caterina e la sua famiglia sono stati ospiti eccellenti, persone molto simpatiche e hanno lasciato la casa in ordine. Spero ritornino presto.
Perfect guest - neat, quiet and very polite. Would recommend to any host!
Katharina is one of my best friends, we've known each other since school. Although we now live in different cities, I regularly come to Berlin to visit her and get to stay at her wonderful appartment. It is a great, spacious place, beautifully decorated, very well kept and Katharina is a wonderful host. Her place is perfectly located right in the centre of the trendy Prenzlauer Berg district with lots and lots of cafes, shops, bars and art.
Katharina is one of my dearest friends and I know her for many years.
She´s easy going and flexible. Always eager to solve smaller (or bigger) problems.
And she´s also caring a lot about her apartment and thinks about how to improve her guest´s stay.
The apartment is beautiful: cozy but not overloaded, chic but not posh. I love this art piece in her dining room!
It´s only a 5 minute walk to the famous Kollwitzplatz with all this nice little shops and cafés around. There is an organic farmers market on Saturdays. Get some vegetables there, grab a bottle of wine around the corner in one of the many 24/7-Shops and enjoy your home-made dinner at the big wooden table in the dining room!
Katharina is a friend of mine and i can honestly say she is a wonderful host – helpful, reliable, warm and welcoming. She has a great apartment in the heart of trendy Prenzlauerberg, a fun and beautiful part of town – surrounded by galleries, restaurants, cafes, bars and weekend markets. The apartment is nice, comfortable and modern, but further more it is located in one of the very few houses left which are still in the traditional east berlin unrenovated style. This gave berlin its distinctive characteristic look after the wall came down and berlin became the place to be for a young global urban crowd. Come fast, before berlin looks again like all the other western metropoles.
I'm Katharina's sister living in the same nice neighborhood. The apartment is beautiful and luminous and I feel very comftable haning out on the couch with a cup of tea chatting with Katharina.
Nice apartment and helpful host, perfectly located in Prenzlauer Berg. Small and beautiful shops and boutiques around, only 10minutes to the centre by tram/subway.
