Downtown city landmark of most legendary street - Friedrichstrasse.
Best location if most famous sights should be reached by foot.
Magicians, The Greens, Bankers and Filmmakers
Gutschow House, built in 1895 by famous German architects Kaiser & v. Groszheim , represents an important work of historicism (gothic revival and new renaissance). Due to the complex façade design, its location and its history, the house is the landmark of southern Friedrichstrasse . It is the only house of the area which 100% survived the 2nd world war. Was this, because from 1910 until 1990 was here the Mecca of the Magicians due to the magic center of the world famous illusionist Conradi-Horster ?
2006 the green party conjured a unique project: all tenants received the first right of refusal and got the chance to buy and develop this famous house by creating a partnership with investors (first were two former bank chairmen, later filmmakers). But why only we made use of this right ? This is a part of Berlin living past and present that you can experience. We call it MyBerlinStyle.

Reviews that spark our excitement:
'Feel the history; Love the Comfort' by Curiousnellie (Left on 02/04/2010 for a stay in December 2009) brought us to install a lift:
'Six of us - women 'd'un certain age'- stayed here at the beginning of this winter and were all delighted with our choice. The building itself is beautiful, redolent of end of empire flourish, while the apartment, with the gracious proportions of an earlier era is warm and welcoming. We loved the beautiful original wooden floors, the decorative plasterwork on the bedroom ceilings, the sense of space, as well as the terrific shower in a stylish, modern bathroom. Our inner homemakers thrilled to the quality and solidity of the linens and general fittings (and dreamy beds ). The kitchen is really well equipped so we did not just eat breakfast there but prepared some meals too, though there are some good restaurants close by. The main room and the bedrooms are really roomy, not even with 6 of us did it ever feel crowded. Marion , our host in Berlin, was welcoming and gave some really useful tips on eating out and things to do, and his welcome package was chosen with care - organic and delicious.
The location is great! so close to Museuminsel that it makes a very comfortable stroll before a trip to the unmissable Pergamon. But if walking's not your thing then the wonderful Berlin public transport system is accessible only 2 mins away at the Kochstrasse stop. Another visit you must make is to the Jewish Museum which is also only 2 mins walk from the building. This is a great city for history and culture fans , so get booking ! you won't regret choosing this apartment as your base for your explorations. But get fit first and keep your luggage minimal; there are two flights to walk up. '
I am a documentary film maker trained in Great Britain, Polen and Moldavia and own a small film- and tv company that worked for the most German TV companies.
My wife, our two children and me live in the same house, enjoy meeting our guests, are eager to exchange experiences and tell the full story of MyBerlinStyle.com. Just let us know and we will arrange a weekend brunch in the city with the largest brunch menu.
This city landmark is the most beautiful house of the southern part of the famous Friedrichstr. The position is top central and very quiet, because 150 meter from us is starting the pedestrian zone and there is no drive through. All this and the quality of our organic renovation and furnishing makes this place one of the best you can book.
