MAGICIAN THE GREEN, BANKERS AND FILMMAKERS
Gutschow house, built in 1895, a significant work of historicism (neo-Gothic and neo-Renaissance), is the symbol of the southern Friedrichstrasse because of the elaborate facade, its location and history. It is the only hotel in this area that 100% of the second World War II has survived. Perhaps because 1910-1990 was the Mecca of the magicians here by magic headquarters of the world famous magician Conradi-Horster?
2006 The Greens conjured a unique project: all tenants have received the right of first refusal for the entire house and thus the possibility in partnership with investors (first former bank directors, filmmakers later) to buy the house and rehabilitate. But why we have made use of this right? This is a part of the living past and present that you can experience. We call it MyBerlinStyle.
Reviews that ignite our passion:
'Feel the history; Love the Comfort 'by Curious Nellie:
'Six of us - women' d'un certain age'- stayed here at the beginning of this winter and werewolf all delighted with our choice. The building is beautiful Itself, redolent of end of empire flourish, while the apartment, with the gracious proportions of at Earlier era is warm and welcoming. We loved the beautiful original wooden floors, decorative plasterwork on the the bedroom ceilings, the sense of space, as well as the terrific shower in a stylish, modern bathroom. Our internal homemakers thrilled to the quality and solidity of the linens and general fittings (and dreamy beds). The kitchen is really well equipped so we did not just eat breakfast there but some prepared meals too, though there are some good restaurants close by. The main room and the bedrooms are really roomy, not even with 6 of us did it ever feel crowded. Marion, our host in Berlin, which welcoming and gave some really useful tips on eating out and things to do, and his welcome package which chosen with care - organic and delicious.
The location is great! so close to Museum Island did it makes a very comfortable stroll before a trip to the unmissable Pergamon. But if walking's not your thing then the wonderful Berlin public transport system is accessible only 2 mins away at the Cook Street stop. Another visit you must make is to the Jewish Museum Which is so only 2 mins walk from the building. This is a great city for history and culture fans, so get booking! you will not regret choosing this apartment as your base for your explorations. But first get fit and keep your luggage minimal; there are two flights to walk up. ' (Love Curious Nelly, Rooms 11 and 12 have since 2013 by a lift.)

Nino Stoica purchased this apartment in 2006
My family’s stay at this historic building was fantastic. The apartment was clean, airy, and centrally located. Our apartment had 3 large bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. Perfect place to rest after a long day of sightseeing.
The owners were on vacation with their family when we were there. However, through emails and phone calls, they made sure that everything was perfect for our arrival, stay, and departure. My only regret is not being able to thank them in person!
The property was most satisfactory in every way, very spacious, clean and well appointed. We appreciated all the inclusions such as tea, coffee etc as well as the washing machine and dryer. The building has been beautifully renovated and was convenient being close to 2 train stations and also popular tourist sites. The hosts were very helpful when we had a couple of queries. There is a Kaiser supermarket a short walk away and also other shops and restaurants. We loved our stay at Guschow house and would happily stay again, it is the best holiday rental I have ever booked on line anywhere I have visited.
My family of 4 (2 adults and 2 teenage children) stayed in the apartment for 4 nights in early August. We were immediately impressed by the cleanliness of the apartment and the abundance of space for everyone. We all enjoyed having 3 bedrooms for everyone to spead-out and enjoy their own space. We also very much enjoyed the use of the washer/dryer in the apartment.
The check-in and check-out procedures were easy to follow and all communications with the owners were positive. There was a small maintenance problem with an exterior door that was fixed and follow-up on very expediently.
The location was a good for those vacationing as there was very easy access to the subways and trains nearby. We elected to eat our dinners in other neighborhoods as we were out sight-seeing most days and didn't want to eat too near Checkpoint Charlie (too touristy).
The apartment itself was very quiet but there was some construction going on nearby. As we noticed around town, there is construction going on throughout the entire city of Berlin (and likely will be so for some time) so it's just part of what comes with going to Berlin. We didn't find it too terrible by any means.
Overall, I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone traveling to Berlin.
The property is extremely well kept in an ideal location if you're visiting Berlin for the first time. Perfect apt for families.
All communication regarding this apartment was met with almost instant response. The location is great! The apartment is airy, spacious, clean and comfortable. Highly recommend this location for your Berlin stay.
Staying in VRBO apartments is part of our travel enjoyment. Previous apartments have always been interesting, inviting, with many personal touches to make our stay enjoyable. Unfortunately this was not our experience with this apartment. The apartment was very stark, completely lacking in any adornment or personal touches, with nothing beyond the essentials. All of our communication with the owners was on-line. No one welcomed us to the apartment to give us information about the facilities or the surrounding area (even though they live on the same floor as the apartment). We saw the owner on our last night because they needed to collect information from us.
The good things about the apartment were the location – walking distance to many sites, spacious for a family of 6, very clean, nice bathrooms and kitchen appliances (a microwave is available but you must ask for it).
On the downside – there was inadequate comfortable seating in the living area and nothing additional to add to our comfort eg. Basic supplies: condiments, shampoo, laundry soap etc. While these are not requirements they certainly add to the comfort and enjoyment of a stay. With a little extra effort this apartment could also provide a much more positive experience.
