Well-furnished, spacious (approximately 65 square metres), one bedroomed holiday flat. The vacation rental has been newly renovated and all furnishings are new. Suitable for one or two people, this provides a splendid alternative to hotel accommodation. The holiday flat was renovated in mid-2005 and the apartment was wholly redecorated in 2009.
It is situated on the raised groundfloor of
the ‘hinterhaus’ – one goes through the courtyard to the back building. The apartment, therefore, is extremely quiet as its reception rooms overlook a now disused 19th century brewery. The sitting room, approximately 18 square metres, is furnished in contemporary style, dominated by a very comfortable leather sofa. There is another, two-seater sofa, by a Swiss designer. There is a French balcony, overlooking the communal garden. The room contains a large flat screen, LCD television set, a digibox which provides 32 channels as well as a number of radio channels, a DVD player with a selection of films, comedy programmes, operas and concerts, and bookshelves with a selection of guide books to Berlin, novels and history. There is a music centre with a tuner for radio reception, and incorporating a cd player and provision for iPod/MP3 player. The room also features two original oil paintings by contemporary artist Julian Paltenghi. The
The accomodation and service were very good. The apartment was nice and suitable for two persons. It could have been better soundproofed between main staircase and the apartment itself. Location is very suitable for exploration of this interesting area of Berlin.
The rental cost is high, and will ...be main reason for/if choosing another apartment during my next stay in Berlin.
Nice quiet position with good public transport connections and all facilities close by, walking distance from U-bahn, S-bahn and Alex. The apartment was well-decorated, in good condition and everything worked.
The accommodation was very good for our needs (married couple, academic doing field research) for our three-week stay in Berlin. I was hesitant at first, just because of the requirement to pay cash to the person letting us in, but there were absolutely no problems with the payment or getting into ...the apartment.
I was told by several people in the neighborhood that the rent was quite high for our length of stay, so you might want to factor that into your decision. Still, for the quality of the amenities and location (half a block from the M2 metro stop, and 1.5 blocks from the U2 U-bahn line) it is still a great place to stay!
The only thing the place needs is a fan for those incredibly rare hot days in Berlin. Location is incredible. Prenzlauer Berg is so causal and pleasant and beautiful - it is a haven from the rest of Berlin. The apartment is quiet, clean, well appointed. It is a bit dark being just above ground ...level in an apartment complex, but still gets plenty of natural light and sun. Highest recommendation for a couple traveling to Berlin
Great appartment, great neighbourhood (Prenzlauer Berg: lots of restaurants, not a lot of bars though). The accomodation was clean (and hygienic, e.g.: double sheets around the pillows), big kitchen, big bathroom (great shower), it felt like someone's home. Great beds, lots of closet space, quiet, ...good stereo and TV, perfect place to stay for a couple of days. If you rent bikes (closeby), there's a private patio were you can leave them. If I were to have a condo in Berlin, something like this would be just fine!!
