Ich kam auf die Welt und dann war ich 26 :) Details gibt´s auf Anfrage ...
At our arrival we were told that the apartment we had booked had been simultaneously booked by someone else and therefore we were "upgraded to a much better apartment".
This apartment was in fact a cheaper one that was available at the same time which my colleague and I both had the description of the latter still opened on our laptops. Hannes told us this was not true and the apartment given was "more expensive" and "not available on Airbnb". Moreover, the given apartment was at the last floor of the building (4th - German - floor, which normally should be mentioned but obviously was not).
Funny anecdote: on the second day of our stay, Hannes knocked on the door requesting the main desk/table of the living room because he "urgently needed it for another apartment". My colleague and I, a little shocked did not know what to do so we just saw him and one woman carry out one of the main furniture of the flat taking the newspapers etc. since "we did not use them". He nevertheless said that he would replace the table in which case he would offer us a pack of beers.
Furthermore, we had asked for the beds to be separated and they were obviously not. When asking Hannes to give us an extra blanket to be able to sleep on the couch (because it is a little awkward to sleep with a colleague in the same bed), he said "no problem" and guess what, at our arrival back to the flat, not only was there no table replacement nor the promised beer pack but there was no extra blankets. We tried knocking on his door or calling but given that it was the weekend, no one was working.
In sum, we were Highly deceived of the service and the flat.
Very nice building and the apartments were clean. Hannes is helpful host and he gave us a late check out .) We recomend that place for sure!
Sehr sympathischer, freundlicher Gastgeber + fantastische, neuwertige Wohnung in guter Lage. Wem das nicht gefällt, der muss schon irgendwie sehr schräg drauf sein!
Great place to stay in a nice area in Berlin with a very kind host ;-). The apartment is beautiful and it looks like I was the first guest, all new and clean.
Ein absolutes Muss für Reisende mit Anspruch!
Die Wohnung enspricht nicht nur in Sachen Ausstattung sehr hohen Standards, sondern auch in Punkto Sauberkeit. Abgerundet wird das Angebot vom Gastgeber selbst, der individuell auf den Gast eingeht und der mit seiner offenen und freundlichen, sowie unkomplizierten Art dem Gast glaubhaft das Gefühl verleiht herzlich willkommen zu sein!
Alles verlief reibungslos und ist damit nur empfehlenswert!
This flat is awesome, and Hannes is epic!
As far as location, it's truly ideal. The walk is 5 minutes to the Ostkreuz S Bahn Station, and then about 10 minutes to Alexanderplatz and Hauptbahnhof (Bundestag, Brandenburg Gate, Tiergarten). There's lots of great nightlife in the area! And of course the Berlin transport network is incredible, so the whole city is quite accessible.
The flat is bright, clean, modern. Other parts of the building are under restoration (as of July, 2012) so there is some construction traffic. Also, the location is on the first floor so the noise from city traffic starts at about 6 a.m. There are blinds and noise blockers to help sleep at night. But why sleep, you're in Berlin!
Hannes is very helpful and friendly. He's easy to communicate with leading up to your stay - I used email and the AirBnB app. He met us at the time and place specified and was quick to offer tips about the surrounding neighborhood. TRUE STORY: I left my passport when we left, he sent it to me in Rotterdam. Don't lose the key!
There were three total people in our group, we were in Berlin for roughly a week, and this setup was perfect.
Awesome. Gorgeous apartment. Amazing service. Great location. Hannes is super nice and helpful with everything from start to finish and the whole experience is just perfect. The neighborhood is super fun and convenient and way better than the euro-frat-boy parts of east kreuzberg in my opinion. Love it love it love it.
Reservation was last minute and Hannes was extremely accommodating, patient and helpful. We loved the place so much that we're going to stay in the building again in a few days when we get back to Berlin.
You cannot ask more on a temporal rental. Was simply fantastic! Great location, the apartment completely re-furbished with great style, internet access, an iPhone dockin to listen music and even a Nespresso machine.....capsules included (unbelievable).
This is the top of the top on apartment rentals. Congrats Hannes!
Nice new apartment, great location in Friedrichshein. Host was helpful and friendly, will stay here in the future. Highly recommended!
