This apartment was a great place to stay for a small family! The location is great, the apartment is very easy to access with a baby stroller and the courtyard is really great. Very quiet and peaceful place. Rudie, who helped with the keys etc. was really nice and everything worked as planned. We would definitely like to stay here again if we came to Berlin again.
The apartment is very cute and cozy! Great location (best neighborhood in town), clean and has all the ammenities you might need. Rudie was a nice and helpful host. I would definitely stay there again!
Doris is a perfect Airbnb host - responsive, helpful, fair, etc. But most important, she seems to be sophisticated traveler herself, and that helps enormously. I would trust her taste in any city.
Doris is helped in Berlin by Rudi, who is also very helpful and easy to deal with. She contacted me a couple of weeks before arrival to introduce herself, checked back with me few days in advance, then was waiting when I arrived. I am sure that if I had needed anything she would have quickly provided it.
As for this place in Berlin, it worked out very well. The location is perfect. We loved the neighborhood, and the street itself is very nice. The apartment is comfortable and light. It's not fancy, but has all that we needed. It would work well for a couple or a family with young children. It made it feel like we were living in Berlin not just visiting. From my perspective, that is the best.
This apartment was perfect for a traveling family. It was clean and tastefully decorated, with all the amenities you might need. Rudie, the apartment custodian, was extremely friendly and helpful while getting us situated. Doris and Rudie were kind enough to provide a crib and high chair for our 1-year-old. I wish we could have stayed here longer.
Our stay in Doris' place was great. The traditional house is located in an authentic neighborhood, with a lot of interesting shops and restaurants. Public transport it nearby and it's not too far from the center.
The house was clean and comfortable. We met friendly Ji Ayi when we arrived to get the keys - everything went very well.
Unfortunately internet wasn't working and Doris didn't manage to fix it during our stay.
The house is a silent place to relax in noisy Beijing.
We absolutely recommend staying in this traditional courtyard house! It's a great experience, also in cultural aspects! Especially because a lot of these houses get demolished...
Response from Doris:
Thanks Max. Our internet has been fixed. Hope you enjoyed your stay!
the apartment was spacious and very well located. we had a great stay in Berlin!
The apartment was beautiful, spacious and spotlessly clean.The location was great, a leafy quiet street with good cafes and bars nearby. The host was very helpful. Highly reccomended.
We had a wonderful time at this hutong courtyard. It is right in the middle of a lively hutong street with small shops and many restaurants nearby. Well connected to metro and busses too. House is comfortable and even has airpurifiers, great in a polluted city like Beijing, especially with kids. Doris is a good host who responds very fast in case of issues. I definitely recommend staying here.
The appartment is very cute and completely furnished in the kitchen.
The building is very silent and peaceful and also the street. Close to the house there are supermarkets and shops where you can buy food till late at night and there are also nice restaurants close to the place.
A great place in the middle of the old quarters of Beijing. Although there is vibrant life when you go outside, it is absolutely quiet inside! This accommodation is spacious and furnished in good style. Doris is very helpful in every way. We can definitely recommend this place!
Doris was great to deal with from the first inquiry, clear and responsive. She took good care of our cabin and we'd love to have her back.
Doris was a great guest. Good communication, which is important when I'm not there...very much appreciated. I hope to meet her in person next time.
I'd thoroughly recommend Doris as a guest. She stayed a couple of nights with us and is warm, friendly, open and genuinely interested in meeting new people. Doris is very considerate, informing us of her plans and treating us and our home with respect. We'd be happy to have her stay again and thanks again for the Stroopwafels Doris , awesome !
Honestly: This was the worst experience I ever made on Airbnb. 1. She was not stopping to deal about the money - even when I lowerd the price. 2. She was complaining about a roommate being there, even when it was clear before that it is a shared apartment (furthermore roommate an guest did just met each other for some hours) and 3. She was evaluating the living situation even when she was not here (because she booked for a friend - who seemed by the way to be quite happy with the apartment and my roommate). I really love my apartment and till now I just had very very good feedback from a lot of people out there who apprichiate to being hostet by me - Doris is not one of them. Perhaps we had a bad day or bad communication and I totaly got her wrong - anyway, as far as I can judge it: I would not host her (or another guest booked by her) again.
