Overview

Berlin-Mitte Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bath (Sleeps 1-5)

Miniloftmitte's downtown studio apartment is (45 sqm /450 sqft) is located in a stunning, prize winning building that combines a new building with renovation of an existing structure from the nineteenth century. The architects/designers are also the owners of the apartment, and have their own apartment in the building with their family. Architecture buffs love it here!

The apartment allows you full independence while enjoying your stay in Berlin in a unique atmosphere. The generous floor plan allows you to indulge in the modern luxury of pure space. The apartment is equipped with everything you need, and we provide all-organic products and cleaning supplies.

All major public transportation routes can be easily reached from this central location, and so many Berlin attractions are within walking distance (Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag, Alexanderplatz, Berlin Wall museum).

There are supermarkets and excellent restaurants and cafes within five minutes walk.

The Building - Phase 1: Britta Jürgens and Matthew Griffin, the architects who run the minilofts, also developed and designed the buildings.

The miniloft building was built on the property Hessische Str. 5 in two phases from 2001 – 2004. It is a complex interweave of renovation and new construction.

When they bought the property in 1999, the rear wing which now houses the classic minilofts was a run down building from the 1890's typical of Berlin Mitte.

In the first phase the architects completely transformed the narrow original wing by renovating the existing apartments.

The Building - Phase 2: In the second phase, the modern miniloft building (bender), was constructed in the overgrown bomb site at the front of the property. Its three bent stainless steel ribbons embrace the existing rear wing behind and navigate between the buildings on either side.

The building has received several prizes, and been internationally published in many magazines and books.

About The Owner

We are architects who run the minilofts - we also developed and designed the building. We also live in the building in our own apartment, with our two kids Theo and Odile. We took care of every detail so that you can have a wonderful stay in Berlin!

-Britta Jürgens and Matthew Griffin

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2003

Why The Owner chose Berlin-Mitte

We built the Minilofts on a partially destroyed lot (from WWII), close to the former line of the Berlin Wall. After the wall fell, East Berlin was a thrilling place, full of opportunity and energy. And 20 years later, it still is! Only now there are plenty of shops, galleries and restaurants in the neighborhood.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A lot of space and light - cool design - friendly yet unobtrusive service - independence - good cost/benefit ratio - free wi-fi - easy to book - photos on the site corresponds well to the real apartments.

a super alternative

  • 5 of 5
for sightseeing or business travellers who don`t need expensive hotels services but like to be independent and close to a lot of attractive sites for getting a "Berlin feeling".
The apartments are spacious and well equipped with everything that makes everyday life comfortable. I like the the clear interior design.

Great place

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in one of the extroverted lofts - great stylish and roomy space with expensive southern facing windows (got a little hot since there was no AC). The hosts were extremely friendly and accommodating.

Unique apartment

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed in one of the "extrovert" apartments for a week. It was a unique space, well designed, and very comfortable. Certainly worth the cost. The location in the Mitte section of Berlin was ideal. It was within walking distance to various museums and the Brandenburg Gate. Yet it was not a tourist area, and there were many restaurants and shops in the area that were frequented by locals and quite reasonably priced. The manager was very helpful in providing advice. Also, it was reassuring that the owners lived in the same building, in case there were any problems. We would recommend this place to anyone looking for an interesting stay in Berlin.

It was a wonderful stay in Germany

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent 7 nights in Berlin at the Miniloftmitte. We found the accomodations to be perfect for our wonderful week in the city. The apartment was perfectly located, well-appointed with everything we needed, well maintained, and the staff was very helpful.
Also the Berlin guide book that was provided was invaluable to help us get around the city, and the restaurant recommendations were perfect.
We highly recommend the Minilofts to anyone traveling in Berlin!
