The apartment is spacious, clean and located very near to central station. Katje is without doubt nice and friendly host.
The only little problem is the interrupted internet connection which I believe would be solved soon.
I enjoyed the stay and would recommend it to others!
I had a great stay at Katja's apartment and found the location close to HBF very convenient for transport around Berlin. The apartment was very spacious and clean. there was also a great art gallery around the corner.
Katja's flat was perfect for us, well located at central station. She was a great host, welcoming us at the beginning and letting us stay until the end of our last day in Berlin.
She offered us some beers, some food and she even offered to take us to some famous places by car.
I would recommand her flat!
Katja's apartment was beautiful. The best thing about it is that it is extremely spacious. A huge living room which is also your bedroom coupled with a kitchen and a bathroom. The house is equipped with everything you need. Everything works perfectly with the wifi being the only problem during our stay, but I'm sure Katja will get it fixed up before the other guests arrive.
The location of the place is pretty good too. About a 5-10minutes walk to Berlin Haupbanhof which connects you to most of the important places in Berlin. The neighbourhood is quiet and a little secluded due to some construction going on around the area. It is pretty safe though, we didn't run into any trouble throughout our 3 night stay at her apartment.
Katja is definitely the most helpful host I've met so far. We went during the Christmas period and Katja went through the trouble of finding restaurants for us to go to (which was very difficult as most of them were closed). Check in was smooth too and she was constantly in touch with me to make sure everything was okay. I couldn't have asked for more from her!
Overall, I would definitely recommend this place for a good time in Berlin!
I had a great 4 nights at the apartment. It is well kept and charming. I felt very right at home and enjoyed the privacy of the whole apartment. The apartment itself is very clean and well equipped - heating (heater + water for showering) is also adequate. On some nights it was -4 deg celcius but i stayed warm.
The apartment is a 10 minute walk from the Berlin Hbf - there's quite a bit of construction going on at Heidestraße so it looks slightly different from the (website hidden) Street View but its easy to navigate once you exit from the Europaplatz exit at the Berlin Hbf.
There's a few food stands right across the Hbf, an Asian stall, a Doner Kebab stall and a provisions store (i think). The Hbf has a few pharmacies, food stalls, Starbucks (if this is important for you) and a Supermarket (Kaisers).
Location is very central since the Hbf connects to a few places. I visited the following and found it very easy to navigate to these attractions:
- Reichstag (i walked there, through the Hbf)
- Brandenburger Tor (a stone's throw from Reichstag, or you could take 1 stop on the S-Bahn to Brandenburger Tor station)
- Checkpoint Charlie, Topography of Terrors (walked from Brandenburger Tor)
- Museuminsel, just one station to Friedrichstraße S-bahnof where you can also check out boutiques and stores on the Friedrichstraße street
- Potsdam City for Schloss Sansoucci and Ceicelienhof (20 min ride on the S-Bahn)
- Schloss Charlottenburg
Great value and great convenience. Couldn't ask for more.
FYI the outside may look/feel a little dodgy to some, but its an old neighbourhood but I felt quite safe. Low human traffic but there are always cars around and street lamps so you should be pretty safe, even for the solo traveller (that I was).
Oh, and Katja offered to take me to Alexanderplatz (I planned ahead to check it out) on the first day on her car but I declined her offer since I needed to head back to the HBF to get the Berlin Welcome Card which I also strongly recommend. The card really pays for itself, especially if you're visiting the Museum Island.
Katja also spent almost an hour showing some good places to check out on the maps, and showing me around the apartment. She's very relaxed and makes you feel at ease around here. Great host :)
A nice location, provided by a very nice and helpful Lady. Flexible with the time of arrival and so kind to give me a ride to the city as well.
Even with some traffic before the house, it's a very quite place in the back side of the house.
The location just a few steps away from the main train station is great to explore the city.
I'll contact Katja again when travel back to the great city :-)
appartement tres bien situe pour pouvoir circuler dans berlin (5 mn de central station) Assez grand pour 4 personnes.Tres satisfait .Un petit bémol pour internet .connection irrégulière
Mega-cosy, spacious and charming bohemian style apartment walking distance to Mitte and with u-and S-bahn to all cool places of beautiful Berlin. Totally recommend.
Bien que super situé HBF (HautBahnOf), le lieu est un peu déconcertant au départ. Berlin s'est attelé à des travaux gigantesques et l'on est dedans ou presque. Néanmoins, l'appart donne côté cour et donc, 110 m2 d'un calme absolu ! Pas de connexion durant notre séjour, c'était dit, mais en fait un îlot paisible et près de tout. C'est 1 appart d'artiste, déroutant au demeurant et sans que manque l'essentiel.
Me and my girlfriend were guests at Katja's apartment for a week and it was perfect. Katja welcomed us with lots of tips for Berlin restaurants, clubs and sites and was very communicative. The apartment is clean, cosy, home-like, super central and will answer all your need. We recommand this apartment for everyone and we'll surely be glad to return soon!
Very nice people, very polite guest, thank you!!!
Katja is super sweet and easy to deal with. I had absolutely no doubt about hosting her, as I trusted her completely, and will gladly host her and her partner again! :).
Katja is a wonderful woman. She's helpful and responsible. Her cozy, quiet and tidy place is located perfectly in our great neighborhood. Weinbergspark, the civilist store, a huge supermarket and even a kosher cafe/bistrot are close by.
Katjas Apartment is very tidy,lovely and so cozy!!!!!And It's definitely the best area! You have everything what you need in walking distance!Cool bars,galleries,cafes,shops etc.
And Katja is just fantastic! A wonderful person! Very helpful and gently!
So everyone out there I highly recommend to stay at Katjas place!
