About the property

Bedroom, Living Room, Kitchen w/ Seating Arrangement and Bathroom w/ Tub

In a green, quiet courtyard right next to the famous corner of Schönhauser Allee where street cars pass underneath the U2 train and Kastanienallee with its trendy boutiques and cafés turns into more residential Pappelallee, lies this sweet little apartment with a separate kitchen, bathroom with a tub, one bedroom and one living/dining room. Located on the ground floor with large windows facing the courtyard and extremely high ceilings, the apartment offers a peaceful and relaxing retreat after a busy day in the city along with a little bit of nostalgia for the style of the ‘70s.

Apartment fine but owner not fine

  • 3 of 5

Location of apartment was great. Apartment itself was fine. Main problem was in dealing with Marc. After arrival I wrote him a list of problems along with suggestions for improvements in instructions for future renters. The two biggest problems were that we couldn't get the tv to work and there were tons of misquotes inside--we killed about 40 on arrival. Marc's response was he thought I was homesick and what did I want him to do about all of this. I wrote back next to each item either "suggestion for future renter" or "please help" with tv and misquito problem. He never responded back. I am a VBRO owner myself and was appalled at his one response, then lack of response.

Perfect flat in a great neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to stay in the real "heart" of Berlin, this is a place to be. The neighborhood doesn't get better than this, and everything you want (dining, shopping, transportation) is right outside your door.

The flat had everything I needed for a week's stay. The bed was very comfortable, and it was nice to have a few friends come over and enjoy the living room. All in all, I am very happy with my time here!

Comfortable in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

I just spent a week in this comfortable apartment. The descriptions and photos were accurate, and I love the location. It's convenient for tourist sites yet feels like a neighborhood with cafes and bars. Public transportation to anywhere is reached in a 2 minute walk, and a grocery market is across the street. The apartment is on the ground floor (no stairs!) facing a sunny and quiet courtyard. The bedroom is small, but filled with a large comfortable bed and good reading lights. The internet is fast and reliable, and the kitchen is equipped with all the basics. Communication with Marc and Mena was easy. This is not a luxury apartment, but it was perfect for my week in Berlin.

Nice location, NIce Place

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Needed a place for a quick business trip and found this apartment very well located and reasonably priced. Very clean. Marc was a great host and even had the place cleaned earlier so I could sleep after a long over night flight. The only comment I would have is a bit more closet space to hang things - although since I was out during so much of the trip I may have missed them. Overall a really nice experience and would book again.

Bright and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Nice location, close to the metro, shopping and within a decent walk to downtown. Quiet at night because of its location within the building.

Bright and well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Comfortable beds and sitting area. (Has wifi - wasn't clear from description)

My sister had no problem making contact when she arrived to receive the keys.

Quiet and Well Located

  • 5 of 5

I had to stay on a bit longer in Berlin than planned and found this apartment last minute. The owners were very responsive and I was able to book and check in quite easily. Everyone was very pleasant to work with.

The apartment is close to shops, restaurants, and many transportation options. It is easy to get to many of the Berlin tourist spots with nearby streetcar stops and the U-Bahn station. There are also many nice things nearby as well such as the Kulturbrauerei, a shopping center, and lots of restaurant options.

It is not a luxury apartment, but I found it quite comfortable and really quiet. It is a good choice for a Berlin tourist, much more comfortable and accommodating than a hotel.
