Aesthetically pleasing, comfortable and spacious

  • 5 of 5

We were overjoyed to be staying in this fabulous, historic apartment. Everything we could have wished for and more (at least 3 different ways of making coffee!). When holidaying in Berlin in the winter a primary concern is to keep warm. Despite all the luxurious space this apartment was really cosy and controls on each radiator meant we could be just as warm as we needed. The beds were big and comfortable and the huge velux windows were perfect for gazing at magical snow-covered trees. Stephan was most accommodating, in particular in his flexibility around arrival/departure times. We are an English family visiting with three adult daughters and the apartment accommodated us perfectly - a lovely big table to eat at and a vast bathroom. We particularly liked the vintage/modern style and the fish painting. The big map of Berlin and information about the locale were useful too.

We used the trains to travel around Berlin and enjoyed the walk to and fro the station, particularly in the snow!

We would all recommend this apartment - we would give it 10 stars if we could!

Wonderful renovated loft

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of spending a week in Stephan's beautifully and professionally decorated loft. The apartment exceeded all our expectations. Stephan and his mother were most hospitable, bilingual folks who were kind and flexible to meet our needs. We would very much look forward to revisiting in the future. The pictures do not do justice to this wonderful facility that we would recommend with no reservations.

Wonderful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic place. It is a beautiful, huge loft in a very interesting building. It is extremely clean, beautifully appointed, with everything you could need. There are good restaurants and good grocery stores very close by, and it is located in a quiet neighborhood of Berlin.

Stephan was very kind, efficient and very easy to deal with, and provided lots of interesting background on the building.

We will definitely stay here again when we are in Berlin, and recommend it highly to other travelers.

outstanding berlin apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely loft a partment with a kitchen I wish I had at home. there is every thing you would need in it and the Spar is a very short walk away. The upside to a fourth floor apartment is that it is great exercise and there is also recyling bins which I like to see, The apartment is verybright and clean and very comfortable. It is close to bus stop and about a short walk to the subway. There are some nice restaurants near by and we found Berlin a great place to visit and would definitely recomend this city and this apartment.

We stayed here 22/01/08 - 26/01/08 and cannot not recommend this apartment enough, the quality of the accommodation is exceptional !!


If you are concerned about staying in a residential area....don't be!

The apartment is in Stephanstrasse which is only a few mins walk from Birkenstrasse UBhan which is just three stops from Zoo Station which is a major interchange. The Berlin underground is fast and efficient & we were surprised how quickly & easily we could get to places of interest.


Bakers, Supermarkets, restaurants, playground and a couple of bars all within 3 - 4 mins walk. We recommend Dicker Engel right next to Birkenstrasse UBahn for traditional German food (ask for the English menu).


Located on the top floor of a 4 storey building ( 4 flights of stairs so not good for anyone with mobility problems) the apartment (apmnt) is BIG. A large living area with sofa and chairs, TV (only the news channels are in English) DVd and Internet, a dinig area with a wonderfully rustic dining table seating 8 and the kitchen area running along the back wall. The Kitchen area is VERY well equipped & I can't think of anything that you would need that wasn't provided.

The bathroom is large and the bath and shower are excellent with plenty of hot water.

There are two bedrooms with very comfortable double beds

The apmnt was spotlessly clean, very warm and comfortable, exceptionally well equiped and, not being directly on a street, nice and quiet and if this isn't enough it also has a lot of history from the "commune" period of Berlin.

The owner, Stephan, was freindly & approachable, speaks good English & was even kind enough to book us a taxi for the airport on our return.

Berlin is a great place to visit, don't miss the Zoo, the Olympic stadium (take the audio tour) & the food hall of the KaDeWa department store & if you want a really great place to stay then choose Stephans attic loft apartment as I don't you'll find better accomodation for the price anywhere in Berlin.

Wunderschöne Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Wieder einmal konnten wir Berlinloft besuchen und in dieser wunderschönen Ferienwohnung entspannte Tage verbringen. Dieses Mal in dem Attic Loft.

Der Kontakt zu den Vermietern ist immer sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Die Ausstattung der Wohnung lässt keine Wünsche offen. Absolut spitze in Berlin!!! Wir konnten Fahrräder mieten und haben die Stadt erkundet.
