We had an amazing time in Berlin while staying in Ben's apartment. First thing to mention is that Ben is a great host, easy to contact, friendly and helpful. We only met once but was always trying to make our stay as comfortable as possible (even making it possible for us to access the apartment early in the morning after an overnight bus.) we can't speak highly enough of Ben as a host, he is brilliant.
The apartment itself is beautiful, modern and clean with comfortable furniture through. It was full of light and had plenty of windows to get a nice breeze through the place. The shower and bath are excellent and the non stop hot water was fantastic after big days of exploring Berlin. The building is easy to find and get to and is in a beautiful location that makes it that little bit more special.
The location is superb, you can see the tiergarten station from the balcony and is a 2 minute walk from the apartment. Access to the whole city and surrounding regions is very, very simple from here (take a trip to potsdam, well worth it!). You can of course walk to the victory column (5 minutes), tiergartens (you are basically in them already but cross the street and walk around for an hour, they are beautiful) and the Brandenburg gate can be found 20 minutes walk down the road.
A wonderful apartment in a great city. We can't recommend Ben and his apartment highly enough.
Ben was very welcoming, gave us an overview of what there was to do in the neighbourhood and gave us advice on how to get around. The appartment was exactly as described, very spacious and bright. The transport links were great and the neighbourhood was safe with plenty to do within a short bus or train ride. Or if you prefer walking it's right next to Tiergarten.
Would highly recommend.
Ben's apartment was really a "home" during my one-month stay in Berlin. After a long day out or even in the middle of the day when I felt tired, the apartment welcomed me back like my own home, and let me feel restful and allowed me to recuperate. In the greens of Tiergarten and early spring sunshine (I was blessed to have it often even in March), it felt like an oasis! I simply cannot imagine I could have enjoyed my month in Berlin as much, if I had stayed in another location.
The apartment itself was, of course, very comfortable and practically furnished to one's daily needs. But what made my stay there special was the personal relationship Ben and I could build while we communicated online (before, during, and even after my stay), and especially when we met in person during my stay. He waited for me in the apartment when I arrived, and I had a chance to spend some time with him during my stay. I am very thankful to him that he was also willing to make our relationship something more than "online". Ben is very kind and hilfsbereit (ready to help) as a person, and very professional as an airbnb host. I hope this time's meeting is just a starting point of our relationship and friendship!
Regarding the apartment itself, I cannot imagine a better location to have, especially if it is one's first time visit to Berlin. It is across from an S-Bahn stop, and only a 5-minute-walk from a nice grocery store and a U-Bahn stop. You can walk to major tourist sites (Brandenburger Tor, Reichstag, Berlin Zoo, etc.) in 10-20 minutes. It was also convenient for me, because I could walk in less than 20 minutes to the places I frequently visited (my Sprachschule, Philharmonie, and Schiller Theater).
Considering all the wonderful experiences I had, I don't consider the rental rate to be too high, and I would stay in Ben's apartment again when I have a chance to visit Berlin again!
El pis és fantàstic, gran i en bon estat. La connexió d'Internet funciona perfectament i el pis està preparat amb tot allò necessari (sabó, tovalloles...). Està localitzat entre Charlottenburg i Savignyplatz, aproximadament a deu minuts caminant de cada estació, a un tercer pis sense ascensor. El Ben es preocupa perquè estiguis a gust al pis i, tot i no ser-hi, envia missatges per assegurar-se que està tot en ordre. També es preocupa per fornir la nevera, per si arribes tard i no tens oportunitat de comprar res. En resum, només aspectes positius a comentar.
Quiet neighborhood but convenient location for our purposes. We were total 5 persons family and plenty room for us. Only one minuspoint from us was that one double bed was too hard for our standards. Otherwise no complains, everything went as agreed. We can use this place in the future but hoping one bed to be softer next time
this was a FABULOUS rental, even better than described. wonderful location, and spacious and well-equipped inside. what made it extraordinary though was that after a long day of travel, to find a welcoming note to eat or drink whatever we'd like from cupboards and refrigerator so we wouldn't have to shop in what was still an unfamilar neighborhood. thank you, ben! i'd definitely return with pleasure!!!
Honestly this place is great. Youve got everything you need. The public transport is super near. Super market is not so far. And it is exactly like shown in the picture. The kitchen is great too. I had a good time. 10/10 would recomend.
The apartment has a perfect location, right inside the tiergarten (you can even see rabbits from your window). It is it is just a few minutes away from S-bahn (Tiergarten), 7minutes of walking from U-bahn and 10 minutes from huge transportation hub Zoologischer garten which is really very convinient if you are planning to do a lot of sightseeing. Moreover, you can get to Brandenburg tor and basically most of the rest points of interest on foot just in 20-30 minutes.
The apartment is exactly the same as on photos, very bright and spacious. It has very cute little kitchen which has everything you need (even if you are cooking complete dinner). The house itself is rather old, but looks very neat, clean and reliable.
The weather during our stay was rather cold so it was a bit chilly in the apartment, but there was an air heater which helped a lot.
Ben is very kind, highly responsible and just a perfect person to deal with :) I would definetly recommend staying in his apartment!
Staying at Ben's place was a most enjoyable experience. The location was ultra-convenient: 200m from Tiergarten S-Bahn on the edge of the big central park in Berlin. The place was clean and neat, and had most things one could require. The fridge was even stocked with some welcoming goodies, a nice touch. Ben was great to deal with, anticipating the major queries via email and leaflet communications and responding speedily to others.
Minor drawbacks: the cooking facilities were slightly limited (only two hotplates). Getting laundry done was a byzantine process, involving communicating with the concierge via note, waiting til the key was dropped off, then using one of two rooms in the basement (about 90 steps down). Still, these did not seriously impinge on the quality of the stay.
O apartamento do Ben é exatamente o que está descrito: um espaço aconchegante, com tudo o que você precisa para um período de pelo menos sete dias na capital alemã. A localização é ótima e faz você se sentir um local. Próximo da estação de trem urbano e do metrô, tudo fica acessível. O condomínio é especial: além de ficar em um parque sensacional, o Tiergarten, está entre construções assinadas pelos mais importantes arquitetos do século XX. Vale muito a pena!
Really lovely couple, left the bothy clean and tidy. Friendly and easy to chat to. Highly recommend to other hosts.
Entspannte Gäste ohne Probleme bei Kommunikation und Schlüsselübergabe.
Wohnung war in Ordnung und alles vernünftig hinterlassen.
Brian and Tracey were great guests. Very easy going and easy to communicate with. They left a perfectly clean flat. I would definitely love to welcome them again - anytime - and be able to meet them in person then.
Ben and his girlfriend are very nice guests, they are also clean and respectful. I definitely recommend them.
Ben was a great guest, kept the flat very clean and was attentive to the property. Everyhing was as it had been when they left. He was a cheerful person, and we would very much love to host him again.
Polite, nice and happy couple! we are really happy to meet them!:)
very good person, pity not to spend a lot of time with him and his girlfriend!
for sure trustworthy and polite guests
