I loved this place
Excellent location in Prenzlauer, plenty of room for family of 4
Conversation with Marc was very good...he was very flexible with check-in/check-out times. Marc met me at the apartment without any problems (I only had email access while traveling and he was very responsive with a quick turnaround). He seems to be a very kind and generous person. The apartment is quite spacious and is described appropriately. It is little worn around the edges, but very clean and comfortable. The bathroom is not large, but I think that is standard in Europe, and it has a full tub, which is not as common. The apartment is very quiet; we left the windows open all night and were not woken up by any loud noises. It is in a building with a series of courtyards, so it is closed off from the busy outside street. The location was excellent, near many restaurants (we loved Mr. Le and the Prater Beer Garden, and there is a ton of other options within a short stroll), transportation (the M1 is an easy ride to Hackesher Market, the U2 to all of Berlin's top sites), and grocery (there's a Reve across the street). I would absolutely stay here again and I think the price per night is quite fair. Overall, a great experience that I highly recommend.
Dirty apartment with spotty wifi
Apartment was drab and dusty with dirty walls and light fixtures. Dirty knick knacks were everywhere. Spotty and intermittent wifi. Master bed mattress was thin and hard. Vinyl couch seats sliced up and frayed. 2nd bedroom was tiny with dirty mops and a high chair next to the bed. Some light bulbs were burned out. These people need a wake up call! We asked for several things and Alla berated me on the phone. One thing we never got. The water pressure was very good with immediate hot water. The listing pictures may have been taken when the apartment was first decorated. The location was conveniently located near public transport, and a grocery. I don't recommend this place.
I was happy when the guests left our apartment.
Very annoying, constant wishes, but sometime should be conclusive.
This is the perfect spot to explore Berlin from.
I was impressed with how accommodating the owners were. They held our bags for us until we could check in later in the day which freed us up to run around Berlin for the day since we flew in so early.
The Place is nicely kept and clean. It is a 2 bedroom with the 3rd room being the living room that has a comfy sofa someone can sleep on. The refrigerator in the fully stocked kitchen is tiny by USA standards but as I later found out exactly the size everyone in Germany uses. They could replace one of the nonstick pans that has lost it's coating in the center, but other than that you have everything you need to cook up a meal if you so choose.
The one bathroom is off the kitchen and has a nice deep tub in it. Great for soaking at the end of a long day.
There are two entrances that face different streets. One will take you to a few places to eat, and if you walk over the bridge, to the Laundromat. The other entrance will take you to the subway and rail stop literally across the street and you can get to anywhere in Berlin on a metro pass for A/B sectors. There is also a full service grocery store across the street as well as a 24hr connivence store right next to the door that takes you to the street.
I keep saying "to the street" because the apartment is in a lovely large enclosed courtyard with a playground and walkway. It keeps out the road noise from the streets.
You have to try the 2Euro old fashioned photo booth that gives you an old time black and white strip of 4 photos. My friends and family had so much fun taking different shots each day and giving them as gifts to loved ones. They are said to last 100yrs.
We had a child with us on the trip and really used and enjoyed the small toy shop next to the photo booth. Best place to buy items to keep a 2year old busy and happy.
This was my first time to Berlin, and I could not have picked a better place to set up home base in and go exploring. I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone coming to town. It is great for families as well as just friends traveling together.
Cozy Apartment. Well equipped, good zone and kindly service from host.

Clean, spacious and convenient
This ground floor apartment was well kept with great links to the u and s bahn, although sometimes we walked into the centre of Berlin which was a half hour stroll. There is a lovely kinder cafe and park on Raumerstrasse. The MachMit kinder museum (Senefelder Strasse) was so much fun we stayed all day! There was enough in the locality and in the city to keep us and our 2 and 1/2 year old entertained. There is a supermarket 2 mins away. We wanted to go to the Lego Centre and it is far cheaper to book on line. If you want to go, book it at home and then PRINT your ticket before you go. Sealife centre was amazing. Great holiday. We'll visit Berlin again.
Our apartment is located in the midtown area of Prenzlauer Berg.
It is a great place to explore Berlin.
The apartment has a terrace.
Suitable for families with small children, a playground in the yard and 100 meters, a large playground.
Shopping Center Schönhauser Arcades 250 meters away.
SU train station, tram station: 3-4 minutes walk
