Una casa muy acogedora y calentita. Estaba muy limpia y Franz es un encanto y te da todas las indicaciones que necesitas.
For the traveler seeking peace and a certain soulfulness in your lodging, you cannot beat Franz' Lovely Lodging in Lively Kreuzberg. As a resident of sister city Los Angeles and more specifically, sympatico Venice Beach, I related to the relaxed boho consciousness exuded by Franz' listing and was not disappointed.
Franz speaks perfect English, was communicative and responsive via text and kindly met me at the appointed time at his flat. He is an intelligent, present and gentle person who looks you warmly in the eyes when speaking with you, and his soulfulness unobtrusively informs the airy homeyness of his flat. Large, lovely plants enliven the space, and here and there, words of wisdom are placed as reminders to take it slow and enjoy life.
I came to Berlin for a music conference and was out most of the time, but had work to do in off hours. Franz' simple desk is nicely situated in the living room and I found myself instantly able to get into a work groove with his fast Wi-Fi. As with all things in Franz' flat, the playing of records on his retro turntable became a meditative ritual that contributed to my work flow.
All of one's basic needs are met, plus a wealth of information provided in an informative pre-stay email. I dearly wished I'd had another week of free time just so I could work through all of Franz' suggestions one by one. I was grateful that he had mentioned an orange community cat in this email, as the cat did stop by and was sweet as can be. As a cat lover, had I not known that this cat was part of life at the building, I would have been distracted and concerned about the cat's welfare, but he's a healthy, friendly guy with a nice, thick fur coat. I do hope one of the residents offers him a warm place to sleep at night.
I feel like I hit the jackpot with Franz' place and would stay there again in a heartbeat my next trip to Berlin, which I hope will be very soon indeed. Thanks so much to Franz for making this basic need such a lovely part of my visit.
I had a wonderful stay in Kreuzberg! The apartment is surrounded by restaurants, parks and close to the metro. The apartment is beautiful and has character. I felt totally at home. Thanks for the hospitality! Berlin is an amazing city!!
When we first enter the apartment franz waiting with us with Hot pot of tea, thats was lovely after the long flight. the listing description was accurate. the neighborhood was in the center of Kurzberg close to the Goriltzer park that was lovely and beautiful.
we will definitely come back
Franz is a very nice host. He is available and friendly. It was nice meeting him even if it was short.
The apartment is very well located,within walking distances of the U bahn (12). It is nicely decorated and the bed is just amazing! It felt so good after a long day of walking. Everything went perfectly and I would totally recommend Franz's flat!
Franz nous avait envoyé une excellente introduction à BERLIN qui nous a beaucoup aidé avec plein de conseils et d'adresses...
L'appartement très calme , spacieux et vintage , très bien situé, avec cour pour les vélos, quartier très animé , très exotique et vivant...
Accueil vraiment sympa de la part de Franz avec fleurs et tisanes yogis.... Et aussi mise à disposition de ses journaux ... un petit panier avec les plans de BERLIN et des friandises pour les enfants ... Sympa !
We had a great time at the apartment. We were travelling with our 2 children and the apartment was perfect for our family needs. The house was very clean when we arrived and a great bottle of wine was waiting for us. We had all the things a family needs in a house through the children room, kitchen, and bathroom.
As the apartment is on the ground floor the children could play outside easily. The neighborhood is fantastic- a lot of restaurants, supermarket, a vast park and 2 ubahn stations near by.
We deeply recommend the apartment.
Frans est un hôte super !
A notre arrivée, nous avons eu en cadeau de bienvenue, un panier avec différents plans de la Berlin ainsi qu'une bouteille de Vodka.
Frans est disponible et patient. Il a pris le temps de répondre à nos questions concernant le quartier et Berlin en général.
L'appartement est spacieux et propre. Il est idéalement placé pour ceux qui veulent sortir et faire la fête car il y a beaucoup de bars aux alentours.
Le lit (vrai matelat ) pour la 3ème personne est très confortable.
Je recommande cette appartement sans hésiter.
Thanks you so much Frans :)
My friend and I had a great time staying here. The location is great for nightlife, restaurants and cafes but is still quiet. Frans was super nice and very helpful. The house stayed really cool on a really hot day. We felt very at home!
Our stay at Frans' quiet lodging in Kreuzberg was great! The place is located in a quiet backyeard, but still in a central and busy area. We had no trouble finding the place, the communication with Frans was easy and he was very welcoming. Great location, and highly recommended place to stay!
Sehr angenehm, umgänglich, keine aufdringliche Quasselstrippe. Bin beeindruckt, dass du dich in eine einfache naturnahe Lebensweise leicht einfühlen konntest, obwohl du aus einem städtisch standartisiertem Umfeld kommst. Ich hatte Freude daran zu sehen, wie du diese Art zu leben, wie ich sie anbiete, genossen hast. Du bist herzlich gern wieder willkommen.
