Charming, warm and well-situated Berlin apartment
Submitted: February 22, 2013
Stayed: February 2013
We stayed 4 days at this lovely apartment - my daughter, myself and two friends - and wished we had booked for longer!
Everything went smoothly, starting with the helpful emails from the owner, being met on arrival and shown around the flat, to the flat itself.
Being in Berlin in February we expected the cold but the flat was really warm, and incredibly quiet despite traffic below. The kitchen is far better equipped than my own at home, and beds very comfortable. You can get into central Berlin by bus in 15 mins, and the nearest underground station is 8 mins walk away. The neighbourhood has a very safe feeling and 4 ladies had no problems walking about in the evening.
Graffiti is everywhere in Berlinn and I think must be regarded less as vandalism and more as art - I only mention at as we were rather taken aback on arrival at the apartment block, and in fact the whole street, to see the graffiti! If that is your reaction then be assured that the you will get used to it very quickly, and it in no way relates to the inside of the building.
One nsuggestion we would make is for an additional sofa or armchairs in the living
room, as there were not enough comfy seats for the four of us in the evening - otherwise it was all perfect!
Owner's Response: Yes, Berlin is very colourful regarding graffiti art, so is our area. Thanks for the tipp with additional sofas and chairs in the living room. We have ordered them immediately and our next guest will already be able to enjoy them.
