Alles zu unserer vollsten Zufriedenheit: netter und hilfsbereiter Kontakt (flexible Schlüsselübergabe), Wohnung hat alles was man braucht (charmanter Berliner Altbau)... Was will man mehr.
Raffael`s apartment was incredible good! Very well located, really close to the subway station, restaurants and supermarkets. Nice internet connection. I enjoyed a lot. And if one day I need to come back to Berlim I will ask Raffael for avaibility.
Don't expect too much. This flat has a great location, but it's frankly needs a good cleaning.
If you're accustomed to crashing at the apartment of your little brother's ex-roomate's girlfriend's brother (the photographer, not the one who's still in jail), then you'll probably be comfortable here.
But if you have privileged expectations about the state of the linens you sleep on and the surfaces you eat from, have a look elsewhere.
That said: It is reasonably quiet and in a great, central location, close to great restaurants, bars, shops and everything you could ask for from Berlin.
i guess you mean it funny. anyways thanks a lot for your stay.

Die Wohnung ist perfekt. Vielen Dank noch mal!
Raffael's place is very nice and very big. It is a little far away from places you want to go, the u bahn is only around the corner from his place but it took us about 20-30mins to get to to places of attraction in Berlin. I'm not sure if that's just what Berlin is like though, no matter where you stay. It is a good price for a nice place.
It's well located, very convenient traffic. But it's some old, and the wifi cannot work!
Misleading. The ad, pictures and person listed as "host" were misleading. We contacted the host, Raffael, and while he responded, he was apparently not around and told us to deal with the house owner, who is some other guy who did not seem particularly ready for, interested in or entirely aware of the fact that we were expected at the flat. When we did arrive, the apartment was absolutely filthy - not at all prepared for welcoming guests. The photos are best-case-scenario staged things - but the place was a disaster. The ad stated that the flat has a TV - it doesn't. The washing machine was still full of the host's wet laundry. It's one thing to have a lived-in apartment you are renting out, but it was dirty and disgusting to a degree that made it hard to imagine that someone could live in it.
Upon arrival, the owner stood around for ages and was still packing to leave, telling us to stay out of this room or that room, telling us not to use his bed, not being able to remember the wi-fi code (he eventually did). He had some other people (friends) in the apartment when we got there, one of whom was going to be the contact person after he left (the person we'd leave the keys with and who was going to water this guy's "plants" - still not sure what that means).
We ended up leaving a day early - we had a bit of a last-minute emergency and needed to go quickly (but we also could not wait to leave this place - it was horrible). We were told that the person handling the keys also had keys to the owner's apartment, so we left the apartment keys inside the flat when we rushed out. Some bad communication issues - unclear who was actually renting the flat out, who was handling things - and we felt quite uncomfortable the entire time. No one wants to arrive in a foreign country and land in a situation that feels questionable and shady.
its a pitty Erika, You could called me anytime. But you didnt do once. You should work better on your communication. But Thanks
Great apartment, excellent host, would recommend this apartment to anyone. Thanks Raphael
Raffaels friends are very nice people to invite in your home. The first evening they arrived we had a great time together. We like to see them back one day.
very respectful proper host!
Raffael is a very funny, warmhearted and honest person. I would let him come stay with me anyday :D
Wow, so nice to see that Raffael is here on Airbnb...
He is a great guy!!!
Raffael is the sweetest person i ever met!! ;)
Raffael is the loveliest host. I can't imagine someone I would want to see when when I first arrived in to town more than this guy. He greeted me when I first moved to Berlin and it really made my day special.
