and I love privacy
Nice flat, located near Ubahn stations and walkable distance to Alexanderplatz. Daniel met us at the flat and let us stay on short notice. He gave us lots of information about the neighbourhood. We had a great night at White Trash on his recommendation. The shower was a bit difficult but not really a deal breaker. The place was clean, well equipped and easy to get to. The flat had a washing machine which was very handy for us. Danke Daniel!
Mt daughter and I had a great time staying at Daniel's flat. Tastefully furnished and in an excellent location 10 mins walk from Alexanderplatz. The flat was warm with a lot of natural light and good outlook at the back onto a courtyard garden.The bed is large and comfy. Some people may not like the fact that the bedroom hasn't got a wardrobe, just some drawers but for us it wasn't a problem.Definitely recommend the flat.
Really nice apartment in a convinient area with public transport nearby. Daniel is a good guy and gave me a quick tour around the area and gave me some recommendations on things to do and see. The place itself is nice and you have plenty of room to move around in with good facilities.
I booked a last minute trip to Berlin. The place that I was counting on staying in bumped me so that the renters who were already there could stay on. Daniel was good enough to book me at the very last minute, for which I am very thankful.
Check in time was 2pm, I think, but Daniel had said I could show up early, as long as I didn't expect the place to be clean. I was there at 10:30 am, and exhausted from traveling over night. Daniel had made up the bed already, so I passed out while he finished cleaning up after the previous guest. When I woke up, he had gone, and left me the keys.
The flat is clean and simple, and has everything you need, but the bathroom was kind of a problem for me. The tub sits in front of an unfrosted, floor to ceiling window, which faces the playground in the courtyard. There is no curtain. This means that if you want to take a shower, you have to do it with children and parents from the building watching you.
Even with a curtain in front of the window, a shower would not have been possible. In Europe, a lot of shower nozzles are the removable kind, and on this one, the clip you use to mount it to the wall was broken, so that it dangled flaccidly on the bottom of the tub, spraying upward. I took baths, as I reasoned most Berliners must do.
I probably didn't get the proper orientation from Daniel, since I arrived just a few hours after booking the flat. If I had, maybe he would have told me about the shower or instructed me on how to turn the bathroom light on. In the three days I stayed there, I could not find the switch for it, so I used a high-powered flightlight I randomly happened to bring along.
Other than that, the furniture is comfortable and nice. There is a big table in the middle of the living room which I used for my computer and camera set up. There is wifi, but Daniel made a point of mentioning that he didn't want guests streaming video or downloading anything, porn in particular. If he is truly concerned about it, he should update the tv, which is an ancient and tiny. I didn't go to Berlin to watch television, though, so it wasn't really a concern.
All in all, it was a pleasant stay, with some quirky issues that weren't dealbreakers for me. I'd stay there again, if I could turn the light on in the bathroom and take a shower.
A nice and cosy appartment with a very central location. Daniel was a friendly and flexible host and gave good advice on what to do for our little family.
Daniel was a great host-- he took the trouble to come meet me even with a late check in and made sure I had everything I needed to settle in. The place itself is really great and ideally located, both for the lively neighbourhood it's in but also how connected you are via public transport to the rest of Berlin. I couldn't recommend this place more.
The apartment was simply flawless. It looks even lovelier than on the pictures and it's supplied with everything needed (clean towels, extra blankets, dishes ….even an umbrella!). The location is more than perfect – there are many restaurants\pubs\supermarkets nearby. A train station is a minute away. Daniel was really nice, he helped us with our baggage, introduced us to everything needed in the apartment (wi-fi connection, heating, etc) and advised about places that worth visit. From the first day, without exaggerating, the flat really felt like home. It's quite important if you are travelling (like we did) on wintery, rainy days. We would definitely consider booking the place again in the future if we happen to be in Berlin.
I absolutely loved staying in the apartment! It was very nice...bed was super comfortable. The best part about this place is that it is directly downtown. The location is perfect! I would recommend staying here.
Die Wohnung liegt perfekt, nah an Mitte im südlichen Prenzlauer Berg aber trotzdem recht ruhig. Ausstattung ist gut, allerdings könnte die Wohnung mal eine Renovierung gebrauchen. Im Bad ist schon einiges kaputt und ein neuer Anstrich könnte auch nicht schaden.
Schlüsselübergabe und -abgabe war sehr unkompliziert.
Saubere, geräumige Wohnung, sehr gut gelegen und sehr unkompliziertes Handling bei check-in und ckeck-out. Definitiv weiter zu empfehlen.
