Overview

About the property

With balcony and gallery

This light, spatious studio flat (52 m²) is situated in a quiet street close to the river Spree and a short walk from Tiergarten, Berlin's large central park. It is nonetheless very centrally located. The main train station is just one stop away by local rail (S-Bahn) and frequent direct trains run between the nearby stations (S- and U-Bahn) and the city's eastern and western centres. And if you'd prefer to walk, traffic-free footpaths will take you through the park to the western centre and the zoo, or along the river to the government district and Brandenburg Gate, in just 20-30 minutes.

Although the river creates a peaceful space close by, the immediate area caters for all your everyday needs. Supermarkets, bakers, a wholefood shop, restaurants, bars and pavement cafés are all just a few minutes’ walk away

 

The apartment is located on the second floor of a classic Berlin residential building surrounding a private courtyard. It has a fully equipped kitchen area, a bathroom with shower and bath and a living room with a separate bedroom corner incorporating two single beds (also usable as a double). The gallery with low ceiling offers two further beds that are ideal if the family wants to visit.

About Anne humphreys

I come from England but now live in rural north Germany with my husband. I am a freelance translator.

Anne humphreys purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Anne humphreys chose Berlin-Mitte

The position close to the river, the traditional apartment building with its central courtyard and the balcony won us over straight away.

What makes this apartment unique

The area isn't just beautiful, it's practical too. The city centre (east or west) is easy to reach and the nearby public transport links will take you just about anywhere. When I'm at the apartment I do a lot of walking and cycling, especially along the river bank footpath/cycleway.

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We were charmed by this apartment when we saw on the website. He is as much or more in reality. It really is a perfect location, close to grocery stores, bakeries, metro and buses. We also appreciated the particulèrement walks along the river at night. Our 8 year old son especially liked the mezzanine and toys, even if the ceiling is a little low. The kitchen is fully equipped. In fact, we have not missed anything in this apartment. The owner responds quickly to emails and questions. I recommend this apartment again and I am very happy to have found this little gem that has allowed us to appreciate even more our first stay in this magnificent city of Berlin.

Perfect peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

This well-appointed apartment is ideal for a couple and can also accommodate two reasonably agile children - their sleeping area is loft-style, reached by a good ladder. The apartment has a small balcony overlooking the quiet street which carries only light traffic; there's no background traffic din. The kitchen is very well equipped, if slightly short on storage space. The bathroom has a shower over the bath. The apartment is well maintained and in spotless condition. The listing description is just fine.

A very good supermarket is just 10 minutes' walk away; almost next door to the apartment building is the excellent Buchkantine, an informal bistro and bookshop with plenty of outdoor seating. It almost overlooks the Spree; Bellevue S-bahn station is about 15 minutes' walk away along the river bank; from there it's just one stop to the Hauptbahnhof.

The owner provides excellent service before your arrival and there's plenty of information to browse in the apartment.

We've stayed there twice - which speaks for itself, and would not hesitate to return.

Freundlich und geräumig

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung liegt sehr schön in einer kleinen Straße richtung Spreeufer. Sie ist insgesamt hell, hat viel Naturholz. Man kann gut am Balkon sitzen. Der Buchladen-Cafe nebenan ist super empfehlenswert und die unmittelbare Nachbarschaft ist nett und entspannt - Verkehr nur in Schritttempo, öffentliche Tischtennistische, toller Eisladen, Fluss mit Uferfußweg.

Wonderful apartment in Berlin!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy to find this great apartment in Berlin. It is in a real neighborhood which makes it fun! You'll be completely out of the tourist zone and in a place where you'll see people going to work and kids biking to school. There are a few bakeries and a great supermarket close by. Every morning I got up early and bought brötchen and other pastries and we had a real German breakfast right in our apartment. A short walk to 2 subway stops and you're close to the Spree! Berlin is an interesting city. We had never been there before an look forward to visiting again. Of course we'll stay in this apartment! Have a great trip!

Helle, gemütliche und zentrale Wohnung in Berlin

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung ist offen und freundlich und bietet genügend Schlafmöglichkeiten auch für mehrere Leute. Zu zweit war sie für uns sehr großzügig und bot eine angenehme Atmosphäre, um nach einem Stadtbummel zur Ruhe zu kommen oder in Ruhe etwas zu kochen. Neben dem Wohnzimmer mit der freundlichen Atmosphäre bietet die Wohnung ebenfalls andere Möglichkeiten sich wohlzufühlen. Auch der Balkon mit Blick in die grünen Bäume oder die Restaurants in der Nähe bieten eine ruhige Möglichkeit sich zu einem Schwätzchen zusammenzusetzen. Alles im allem haben wir uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt :-).

Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit.

Niki und Tony

Mit Oma und 5-jährigem in Berlin

  • 4 of 5

Die Angaben zum Domizil waren richtig, sie entsprachen der Realität. Die Wohnung war sauber und angenehm. Für ältere Personen ist es kaum möglich im oberen Teil zu schlafen, für Kinder jedoch ist es ansprechend, zudem finden sie dort Spielsachen und Bücher vor. Die Umgebung mit Restaurants und kleinen Läden sowie einer älteren Bausubstanz sehr ansprechend. Einzig der Zugang zu den ÖV ist etwas weit, was für ältere Menschen und kleine Kinder (die nicht mehr im Kinderwagen sitzen wollen) anstrengend sein kann. Die Abwicklung mit der Vermieterin ist reibungslos, zuvorkommend und freundlich. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und können die Wohnung nur empfehlen.

Owner's Response: Die U-Bahnstationen Hansaplatz und Turmstraße sind etwa 600 m entfernt, die S-Bahnstationen Bellevue und Tiergarten etwa 900 m entfernt. Bushaltestellen sind nahe U-Turmstr aber auch in der Levetzowstr (näher) zu finden.

The apartment is centrally shr, close to the river Spree, near the Tiergarten and the western city center. In about 15 minutes you reach the presidential residence Bellevue Palace, in about 30 main railway station, the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag. In the immediate vicinity you will find a supermarket, bakery, organic grocery store, banks, pharmacy and market as well as a good selection of restaurants and cafes. In the warmer seasons, the shipping company Riedl offers boat tours. Both at the boat launch at the Hansa bridge and on the nearby shore of Helgoland, there are floating restaurants. From the U-Bahnhöf Hansa Square, the S-Bahn station Bellevue and the bus stops, the tower road you can reach all destinations in the Berlin area well served by public transport.
