I´m a freelance photographer based in Berlin and travelling a lot ;-)
Rene's apartment is lovely, with lots of beautiful photographs and objects. The feel of the apartment really added to our stay in such a historic city. The street and flat are very quiet (mid week in February) but it's not far to more lively places to eat and drink on Bergmannstrasse and Mehringdammstrasse. The nearest U-Bahn to the apartment is Platz der Luftbrucke which is a 5-10 minute stroll away and there is a supermarket really near by. Rene was not around at the time but communicated with us a lot to check we were ok, which was great and his friend who welcomed us was very lovely and helpful. I would love to stay here again :)))
Indeed a bright apartment :-) Maybe not too comfortable for people who will wake up because of the sunlight shining through the white curtains. Great facilities and a nice guy Rene, left a lot of information for our stay in berlin. Kitchen was so lovely! Def would recommend this apartment for people who like retro stuff :) thanks rene!
We loved staying at Rene's apartment, and Rene was one of the best hosts we have had on airbnb. We were arriving later in the evening so he got us some bread/cheese/wine and had it all ready upon our arrival. He has easy instructions for how to use everything in the apartment and some tips for supermarkets and restaurants in the area. We followed a few of his restaurant recommendations and were not disappointed. Lovely apartment in a beautiful old building, with a lot of space. It was a bit further away from the heart of Kreuzburg, so we spent a bit more time on the bus and subway than I expected. However, we had the public transportation week pass so it was not a problem at all. I would definitely recommend the apartment to friends.
Had a great stay at Rene's place with two friends. Rene was out of town but he still managed to provide some suggestions for things to do in Berlin. The location was great. The place was clean and well-equipped. Would absolutely stay here again.
René war in meinen Augen der perfekte Gastgeber.
Alles lief reibungslos ab, wenn ich eine Frage hatte war er immer da. Die Wohnung ist ein Traum! Die Lage ist super. Ich kann es nur wärmstens empfehlen hier zu übernachten.
Wir hatten ne super Zeit in Berlin !!!
Rene s Wohnung liegt gleich in der nähe Tempelhof wo sich auch unser Studio für die Albumaufnahmen befand.
In der gemüdlichen Wohnung hat es wirklich alles was man so braucht. Dusche zum duschen, Herd zum Kochen, Klo zum .......... und natürlich Bett zum ausnüchtern.
Am Morgen kurz noch en Kaffee beim Becker um die Ecke, oder kurz einkaufen im Lidl gleich die Strasse runter.
Zu Fuss ist man in 5min gleich bei dem Platz derLuftbrücke von wo aus man mit der U-Bahn in Richtung inner Stadt gelangt.
Die Ausgangstips gibts natürlich auch noch von uns.
Kaatherholzig und die wilde Renate !! unbedingt reingehen!!
Wir kommen wieder

We rented Rene's place for 3 nights and had a really good time. Rene was not at home but gave us good instructions how to get into the apartment, and we had no problems. Also we checked out some of his restaurant recommendations nearby and did not regret it. He kept regularly contacting us to make sure we had a holiday free of complications :)
Rene's apartment is a testament to his good taste. Great decor in an already well designed space. The kitchen with everything you'll need to cook if you desire and the balcony are the icing on the cake. It's also clear he is a talented photographer.
It's in a good location, close to Templehof park (used to be an airport, very cool) and Viktoriapark as well as several buses and U-bahn lines. (Not super close to the U-bahn or S-bahn, but still close). It's close to Bergmannstrasse and Mehringdamm strasse so you'll always have access to food and beer even late night. ;)
He left a lot of advice on what to do in his neighborhood and gave general opinions on local places which was very much appreciated. Rene provides a maps and some other touristy information. The bedding and towels were plenty too.
He also went out of his way to communicate with me, which is a huge plus. Seriously, great customer service skills on Rene's part. I don't know Rene, but he just seems like the kind of guy that you could have a drink with, and that means a lot when you're staying in someone's home.
Rene's flat is very lovely, almost too lovely...I didn't want to leave! In a quiet neighborhood just off Victoria Park, it is beautifully decorated and a comfortable place to relax after exploring Berlin. Rene was easy going and helpful when I met him and also left me a list of places in the area. Thanks, hope to be back soon!!!
We loved staying at Rene's apartment! It was located in a nice area and had everything we needed. Rene was very helpful and always wanted the best for us. We would really like to go there again!
Eine angenehm und gelungene Kommunikation sowie wunderbar problemlose Zeit hatten wir mit Rene und das Selbe wünschen wir euch, so er bei euch zu Gast ist. Hier ist er jeder Zeit gern wieder wilkommen :-)
