100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
The house was great! All 8 of us really enjoyed it.
Everything is as described. The house was quiet (except for fireworks on New Year's) and near public transit. I would stay here again.
Unique Apartment with Steep Stairs, Extremely Limited Parking and Notable Airplane Traffic Noise
The address was easy to find. Parking availability was dismal and didn't improve during our 3-day stay. I parked out of sight, about a 5-minute walk away, in an area where cars had to be driven over a large curb (which could cause scraping if one wasn't careful) and parked on the sidewalk. A quick, safe 5-6 minute walk to the Metro entrance or to a grocery store.
The apartment itself was located within a scenic inner courtyard with little resident traffic. Flight pattern to Tegal was visible from apartment and planes often flew until nearly midnight.
One is required to sign an agreement, provide one's passport number and a 200 Euro cash damage deposit. We have never encountered this process, while renting in Germany. Agreement contained such extra costs such as 5 Euro for not emptying dishwasher and 4 Euro per day for Wi-Fi use. One was required to schedule a check-out time (owner lives 20 minutes away), so the owner could conduct a walk-through, to verify no infractions of the agreement had occurred - and to return the cash deposit. Inconvenient process, if one ends up wishing to leave sooner.
The apartment contained a very spacious and comfortable main floor. The bathroom was big, with nice shower, tub (not used) and washer (not used). The kitchen had nice high-end cabinet and appliances (stove/oven/dishwasher), a microwave and toaster (storage closet) and a good assortment of dishes/utensils/glasses. The kitchen table had space for six persons. The living room contains two comfortable sofas and a small television with several channels, but no HDMI port.
The circular staircase to the upper floor was very narrow. In fairness, we should have realized this, upon seeing the pictures online. It would be difficult for a tall man (my husband) to carry a heavy, large suitcase upstairs. Therefore, we left the larger suitcases in the bathroom, which worked fine. These stairs would be difficult for anyone who has trouble negotiating a regular set of stairs. Otherwise, just take your time going up/down! The smaller bedroom has its own bathroom (occupied by my mother). The larger bedroom had no bathroom. The bedrooms were nice with a lot of storage space. The upper floor is wood, so be prepared for loud creaks at every step. Plane traffic too loud to leave windows open at night. Street noise was not a problem.
Overall, we enjoyed the apartment and being close to metro/store, but parking and noise were issues.
Liebe Frau Michaelis,
vielen Dank für Ihre ausführliche Bewertung meiner Ferienwohnung.
Ich erlaube mir in Deutsch zu antworten, da Sie mir in unserem netten Gespräch zu Ihrer Anreise ja sagten, dass Sie gebürtig aus Deutschland kommen. Mir ist es sehr wichtig, dass sich meine Gäste bei mir sofort melden, wenn etwas in der Ferienwohnung nicht den Vorstellungen entspricht. Dies sage ich bei Anreise der Gäste dazu.
Ich möchte gern auf einige Punkte näher eingehen.
Gern wäre ich Ihnen behilflich gewesen, um für Ihren Ferrari auch einen Tiefgaragenplatz zu vermitteln. Die Parkplatzsituation (5 Gehminuten) ist in der Umgebung der Fewo für eine Großstadt völlig normal und im Vergleich zu anderen Bezirken der Stadt entspannt.
In der Beschreibung der Wohnung ist vermerkt, dass das obere Geschoss über eine Wendeltreppe zu erreichen ist, die Stufen haben Standardmaß.
Ich vermiete meine Ferienwohnung nun seit 14 Jahren. Es ist üblich und erforderlich, dass die Gäste beim Check-in Ihre Personalien bekanntgeben, z.B. für den Nachweis der Citytax. Dies wird auch in Hotels so gehandhabt und ist auch eine Empfehlung aller gängigen Ferienwohnungsvermittlern.
Ebenso die Kaution. Das ist lediglich eine Sicherheit, dass ich die Wohnung wieder im ordnungsgemäßen Zustand zum Ende Ihres Aufenthaltes übernehmen kann. Und das Check Out erfolgt natürlich sehr gern nach Vereinbarung, zu einer verabredeten Zeit.
Das Ausräumen des Geschirrspülers ist manchmal für Gästen evtl. ein zeitliches Problem; so biete ich gern die erweiterte Möglichkeit an.
Die Aufführung der geringen WLAN Gebühr finden Sie in der Wohnungsbeschreibung.
Eine Badewanne befindet sich nicht in meiner Wohnung. Die Remise ist denkmalgeschützt und diese wurden meist in Holzbauweise errichtet, was auch seinen besonderen Charme hat.
Der Fluglärm ist in Tegel, durch die Nichtfertigstellung des neuen Flughafens, angestiegen. Aber es besteht Nachtflugverbot, was Sie ja auch anfänglich bestätigen. Die Flugzeuge sind ein Bruchteil von Sekunden durch die Hausschlucht zu sehen und so auch zu hören. Durch die geschlossene Lage des Innenhofes ist aber so gut wie kein weiterer Lärm zu hören.
Ich wünsche Ihnen alles Gute. Danke für Ihre offene Worte und Ihre positive Bewertung.
Viele Grüße Beate Aust
The property is perfect for friends and families alike. Comfortable living space, great location.
I and my seven friends had an amazing time staying here! The property is beautiful and quaint, and the location is perfect placement and right around the corner from the subway system. The host was so gracious to us, and if we return to Berlin we will definitely be coming back here! Loved it!
The property is great, but...
the difficulties with payments tainted the experience. I was asked to wire part of the payment, which I did, using three different conversion calculators and including extra to make sure the amount was good. My bank charged me for this wire. Then I was told that the deposit was not enough. Fortunately I was able to transfer money to family in Berlin and have them take care of the next transaction. For a while the payment to VRBO that was made by credit card was not acknowledged. Then, with the difference in conversion rates I was never able to get in writing an exact remaining amount that was owed. On check in we discovered that we owed more than the cash deposit. And, I had made the mistake of listing two people instead of four (but had corrected it in a message in February) and we owed extra for them. And the wifi listed as an amenity was not free. I've rented many places through VRBO and never had this much difficulty. It's a shame, this place is so close to family in Berlin that it should be the perfect rental for others visiting, but it was so awkward and difficult that I won't recommend it.
Dear Mrs. Vonderheide,
unfortunately you did not discuss these issues directly with me.
I confirmed you the correct sum credited to my banking account. Due to the fact that a lot of bank fees were incurred, I kindly offered you that your niece made a second deposit (she lives in Berlin) and the rest payment in cash on your arrival. So I have spared you further fees. This means a lot of work for me, but I liked to do it (a lot of mails with you). Of course, I can not confirm online the rest payment, if this you pay in cash to your Arrival.
I offer WLAN in the apartment and calculate a really low usage fee.
I hope you had a nice stay anyway.
I am always very happy for my guests there, even with Problems or questions. You should only talk to each other
What a treasure! Quiet, quaint, charming, pleasant, well decorated, an amazing place in a big city. We felt at home and we were able to entertain 2 family members who now live in Berlin. They have a small apartment, they could not believe such a beautiful place could exist in Berlin. We loved it.
Thank you very much!
Prachtige locatie en zeer vriendelijke eigenaar waar alles mee te regelen is
Prachtige locatie voor een steden trip Berlijn.
The apartment Gallery Remise in Berlin Reinickendorf to feel comfortable with spacious rooms is tasteful, cozy and family-friendly furnishings. Feel at ease; all accommodations have all the necessary things to make you a pleasant stay in Berlin. They are extremely good for families, but groups also suitable business people who shy away from the narrowness of a hotel for their stay in Berlin. The ideal holiday apartment of 2 - 8 people in the middle of Berlin.
Your apartment in Berlin is very favorable. The sights of Berlin, such. As the Alexanderplatz and the Zoological Garden (Kurfürstendamm) can be reached thanks to the excellent transport links with the metro line 8 in each case about 12 minutes. The nearest metro station is about 250m away from the apartment Berlin.
Also to Berlin Tegel Airport is from the accommodation by bus 20 minutes. Berlin Central Station is reached in about 30 minutes. Numerous shops, supermarkets, restaurants are not far away. Free parking spaces are at your doorstep, if you plan to arrive by car. The apartments are located outside the environmental zone Berlin. Reached directly (via urban motorway) no environmental badge is required.
The Berlin closeby Schäfersee invites like to take a walk.
