to live and let live
This apartment was truly magical. In a fantastic area surrounded by excellent restaurants, bars, shops and cafes. I visited with my wife and two year old son and apart from the steps leading up to the apartment it was perfect. The local playground was being repaired but there was another fantastic one just around the corner. The transport links and fantastic and the apartment had everything we needed. An amazing shower and bath, nice big bed and lovely kitchen area. Also a balcony overlooking the street. Highly, highly recommended.
Ole war äußerst hilfsbereit und freundlich! Ein perfekter Gastgeber! Es war völlig unkompliziert, mit ihm zu kommunizieren, alle benötigten Auskünfte hat er sofort erteilt. Die Wohnung ist einmalig! Wer Berlin erleben will, muss dort wohnen! Toll gelegen mit einem wunderschönen Blick, mit einer Ausstattung, die alles bietet. Besonders schön ist das Bad! Alles ist wie auf den Fotos! Die Küche ist mit allem ausgestattet, die ganze Wohnung hat sehr viel Charme und Geschmack! Zu Beginn wurde alles umfassend erklärt, alles war tip top sauber! Ich würde dort jederzeit wieder wohnen und kann Oles Wohnung und Ole als Gastgeber nur empfehlen!
Wir haben uns in der Wohnung von Ole sehr wohl gefühlt. Sie ist perfekt und liebevoll ausgestattet, liegt unglaublich zentral und schön - wir haben vor allem die Kinderspielplätze in der Nähe und die Restaurantvielfalt genutzt.
Die Kommunikation mit Ole hat super und unkompliziert funktioniert. Beim nächsten Berlin-Besuch kommen wir wieder!
A lovely spacious and airy apartment, the huge bathtub is a holiday experience in itself. Ours was a last minute booking that was efficiently handled. The flat is location, location, location; its hard to muster up the energy to leave the immediate area. Go to the 'White Roll' across the road for yummy Asian fusion; Oderberger Street itself is a food and clothing haven. The lovely French windows lead to a roadside balcony keeping you connected to the Berlin pulse and its shockingly peaceful considering. Back to the bathroom, underfloor heating, a speaker by the shower and quirky soap, its those little touches too that make this a very special place to stay. Highly recommended.
Great space in a perfect location. What I loved best were the subtle touches that made the apartment homey: heated floors in the bathroom with rainshower head, large refrigerator and artfully done kitchen. dining room table made from a door that overlooks the living room windows, one of a kind artwork in the living room. The light streaming in the morning bathed the living room in a delightful glow that was just inspiring to wake up to. Nice having a desk for working space as well.
A few detractors (but not insurmountable) - living room couch is classic homemade affair with boxes supported by some cushions. Not the most comfortable but serviceable. The bed, while large, also is not the most comfortable I've slept on. But the space is gorgeous and it's nice to have a true double bed! Last, I desperately wanted use of the sound system but couldn't figure it out. Instructions next time please!
Ole was extremely responsive prior to booking and during my stay. Everything was setup to perfection and easy for coming and going. He even let me drop my stuff off earlier upon checkin - major kudos for the flexibility!
Overall, I couldn't help but fall further and further in love with the apartment over my stay. The restaurants on the street were perfect as well. It's a quiet oasis set in the center of all that's happening out East. Hard to go wrong in my book!
It was a last minute booking on a weekend and it worked perfectly, Ole replied really fast.
The localition is per-fect and the flat is a true Berliner! Warm, sunny and super quiet.
We spent relaxing time in Berlin and Ole's flat was perfect. It's lovely, well equiped, full of charm with a mix of vintage stuff (the soap in the bathroom bring us 25 years in the past !) and the aera is one of the best in Berlin.
Ole's place is great. Perfectly located at the edge of the Prenzlaurberg. Tons of great shops and restaurants on the streets, walking distance to Mitte, etc. Just a block from one of the biggest Sunday Markets in Berlin the Mauerpark Flohmarkt. The apartment itself is cozy with a nice little balcony overlooking the street. All the amenities you would expect form home are there, cooking supplies etc. We had some friends over for dinner and the dining table was more than ample for 5 of us. The bathroom has a large bathtub, rain shower and a heated bathroom floor! There is even a stereo with an auxiliary input for your laptop or iPhone. We felt right at home. Check-in was a breeze with Ole's neighbour living in the same building and meeting us out front. One thing to note is that the wi-fi connection is very weak and the signal often fades away then reconnects. Wasn't a huge issue for us but if you need to work while there or have stable internet access this could be a problem. We would definitely stay here again.
Drei Wochen verbrachte ich in Oles Wohnung. Ich habe mich dort sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Haus war sehr ruhig. Die Wohnung wunderbar hell, gemütlich und toll eingerichtet. Gerne habe ich den Tag mit einem Espresso auf dem idyllischen Balkon mit Blick auf das Leben auf der Oderberger Straße gestartet. Die Lage war für mich ideal. Ole hat auf alle Wünsche und Anfragen sofort reagiert, war sehr nett und ein toller Gastgeber. Ich würde gerne wieder dort wohnen, wenn ich nach Berlin komme. --- I really enjoyed staying at Ole's place for three weeks. The house is very quiet, the apartment bright, lovely and comfortable. I miss starting the day with an espresso on the balcony with a wonderful view of the cafes on Oderberger Street. The location was perfect for me. Ole is a wonderful, sweet host and replied immediately to all wishes and requests. I would love to stay at his apartment again when I'm back in Berlin.
Lovely appartment in a beautiful neighbourhood. Felt like home with all the comfort youd wish for, with a nice kitchen, a bath and a sunny balcony. We saw people photogaphing the house from outside. Appartment itself was clean, spacious, light and furnished with taste.
Not to miss, the sunday flohmarkt at mauerpark and the open air podium next to this market. Nice shops and cafés in the street and around the corner.
Havent met Ole, but the contact via mail was good ( reacted within couple of hours) and he was flexibel in arranging the check in.
We can really recommend it!
