Details for LUX BERLIN 2 1 Bedroom, Sleeps 4, 1 Bathroom
Design boutique apartment right on the Oderberger Strasse, one of the most popular streets in Berlin. The apartment is on the 4th floor of a beautifully restored art-nouveau building with elevator. It has been completely remodeled and renovated. Original features include high ceilings, 2m high windows and hardwood floors; new additions include exposed brick walls, a modern bathroom with walk-in shower and rain shower and a stainless steel kitchen with SMEG designer electrical appliances. The apartment has a spacious living room with a stylish sofa-bed and an elegant bedroom with a leather king-size bed. The two rooms are connected through a 3m high double-wing door which gives a very open feel to the space. The interiors feature an eclectic mix of contemporary furniture in retro style and vintage pieces. This elegant apartment combines old-Berlin charm with modern-day comfort and offers an exclusive living environment in one of the prettiest, most vibrant neighborhoods of Berlin.
Clean design, great location, all you need for a perfect getaway!

We stayed four nights at Lux2 and it was perfect. The location is very lively and in a true neighborhood, not at all touristy. The block is very wide and full of activity but not loud, and there is a charming park you can see out the kitchen window, with youngsters at play. The apartment is large, clean, minimally furnished, and very light -- a balm to return to after a busy day of walking or biking around Berlin and its many attractions. Kitchen had all the equipment we needed, and a grocery within a few blocks allowed us to stock up on the first day and enjoy food in as well as out. Bed was large and comfortable, and the bathroom is spacious and the shower very comfortable. Access to the U2, the central underground line that runs through Berlin with stops near most sights, is within two blocks. I would return to this apartment in a heartbeat!

Tourists without a Car,
Very modern apartment, beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean. Had everything we could possibly need for a comfortable stay. Huge bedroom, huge bed, nice linens. Great area with many restaurants, cafes, boutiques, galleries. Very close to the metro and the tram. Minutes to the city center. Very good communication with the owner before and during our stay, flexible late check-out. We would definitely recommend it to our friends and we hope to return!
Although we really liked the layout and location of this apartment, it was not too clean upon our arrival. Both the armoir and dresser in the bedroom had a lot of hair and dust inside. We were too disgusted to store our clothes here so we just had to lay them out on top of the dresser and leave the rest in our suitcases. Also, one of the pillow cases had a large brown stain on it. When we wrote to Lenna about this, she apologized and made excuses, but nothing more. She should've at least knocked off the cleaning fee for us, but unfortunately she didn't think that was necessary. It's really a shame because it's a truly beautiful apartment in a wonderful location, but because of the lack of cleanliness we won't be returning, nor would we recommend it to anyone we know.

Owner's Response: In the interest of transparency, I would like to mention that this review was submitted in October 2012 for a 5-day stay completed in early August. In these 2 months the guest has repeatedly threatened me with a negative review if they don't get the cleaning fee back. I leave any conclusions to the reader.
To come to the subject of the review, my apartments are serviced by a professional cleaning company who has several employees. The cleaning person who was working on the day the guest arrived obviously neglected to look inside the closets, which was of course a mistake for which I have, in my turn, complained to the cleaning company and ensured that won't happen again. The sheets and towels are being washed and ironed at a professional laundry. Sometimes the laundry machines leave yellowish-brown stains on the linen; the cleaning personnel has instructions to exchange any linen that comes back from the laundry with such stains. Unfortunately 1 of the 4 pillowcases the guest was supplied with had a laundry-machine stain that was overlooked by the cleaning person. This was also a mistake that shouldn't have happened and I have made sure that the cleaners are well aware of it. These are not "excuses", as the guest writes in her review, but facts. I have naturally apologized to the guest for the shortcomings of the cleaning person that day and very strongly complained to the cleaning company. By the guest's own admittance, the apartment was in all other aspects perfectly clean and to her satisfaction. For this reason I found her demand to have the cleaning fee returned unreasonable and the blackmailing tone of her emails clearly inappropriate.
We had a perfect stay! The apartment was excellent, very stylish and clean, it really made us feel so comfortable there. Great bedroom, great bathroom and a great, well equipped kitchen - everything that anyone can need. It has also a great view from the window, the wonderful Oderberger Strasse with its beautiful shops and street life. It is in the centre of the best area in Berlin, Prenzlauer Berg, with its excellent night life. Plus, it is the perfect location if you don't have a car, it has all means of transport. We had a perfect communication with Lenna and she gave us the best recommendations for day and night. It will be definitely our choice again the next time we are going to visit Berlin. We highly recommend it!

Tourists without a Car,
We had a fantastic stay in Berlin. The apartment was very spacious and stylish (the photos don't do it justice!) and everything we needed, or could have used, was provided. The location was just perfect, in the centre of trendy Prenzlauer Berg with its great shops and street life. We especially enjoyed the flea market at the end of the Oderberger Strasse and the Karaoke on Sunday. Lenna is a wonderful host and she gave us plenty of recommendations we gladly took advantage of! We would definitely stay there again and would heartily recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Berlin.

Tourists without a Car,
The Oderberger Strasse, often called the 'hippest' street in Berlin, is a beautiful, wide street right on the limits of Mitte & Prenzlauer Berg. It is a very lively yet very relaxed street that offers the distinctively bohemian vibe Prenzlauer Berg has been made famous for. Artsy cafes, quaint boutiques and laid back restaurants make it a favorite destination of locals and visitors alike. The apartment is located between the Kastanienallee with its myriads of bars, restaurants and coffee shops -among which the renowned Prater, Berlin’s oldest beer garden- and the Mauerpark with its very popular Sunday flea market.The entertainment complex of the Kulturbrauerei is just around the corner, as well as the Kollwitzplatz with its fine wining and dining (and, of course, shopping). Berlin landmarks such as the TV Tower or the Museum Island are a leisurely stroll.This is an ideal base for exploring Berlin: right in the heart of the city but quieter than touristic Mitte and charming day or night.
