We're at the bananas for four days to celebrate for my birthday. It's perfect in the centre of everything. All the bars and clubs,restaurants are minutes away.the guest house is so clean and friendly every one has been great. Even with our after 10pm loudness. Highly recommend thanks Gregor.

Situated in the middle of Schoneberg, close to KaDeWe. Modern clean facilities. You get Meet & Greet on arrival by staff with full orientation given. Only issues: we booked double bed room but were given 2 singles instead. They expect to receive precise amount in cash as they don't have any change to give you. WiFi was hit and miss....

My husband and I recently went to Berlin, Prague, Vienna and Budapest. We stayed at the Bananas Berlin Guesthouse, and had a wonderful time. The room was large, clean, quiet and dark. The restrooms were plentiful and very clean and very big. The guesthouse is in a great location. Although the guesthouse was full, we rarely saw anyone else. We...

We had a great experience at Bananas. We found the shared bathrooms very clean, large and plentiful. It seemed like the bathrooms outnumbered the bedrooms. We rarely saw other guests. Our bedroom was quite large and nicely furnished. The beds were large and very comfortable. Most importantly, our room was quiet and dark (with the curtains drawn) and comfortable for...

Basic, simple accomodation in the heart of Schöneberg gay quarters. Very friendly staff. The rooms are basic, but ok for some days in Berlin. The place is very clean. Shared bathrooms and toilets are no problems. Coffeemachine in the livingroom. Close to restaurants in the neighbourhood. Close to public transportations. The Bananas is not luxury but recomended if you are...

Don't let the inexpensive price and location fool you. Stayed here from 6/2/14 to the 8/2/14. Although we didn't get the pleasure to meet the owners they were an amazing help whenever needed via email. We were greeted by a gentleman who showed us to our room and explained where bathrooms are and how to use kitchen equipment. Tea and...

I stayed in Berlin for a week in September 2013 and Bananas Guesthouse is in a great spot, right in Schoneberg. The owner was very helpful (even with his broken English and my awful German) and managed to meet me quite late at night after a delayed arrival by train. There is no reception at the guesthouse, so it's best...

Staying in Schoneberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Schoneberg
In 1963, Schöneberg was the centre of the political west, inspiring John F. Kennedy to choose this area to famously announce, "Ich bin ein Berliner." Times may have changed, but modern-day Schöneberg still pays tribute to its historical legacies. Once the richest city outside of Berlin proper, the area's affluent past is still visible in ornate housing facades dating back to the Gründerzeit of the 19th century, while residents in fur coats walking their dogs or shopping in high-end KaDeWe continue the tradition with a modern flair. Schöneberg was also once the centre of the decadent and burlesque nightlife of the 1920s. It was here that Marlene Dietrich partied with Christopher Isherwood and the first gay bar in Germany was founded. Today, the gay community still revolves around Nollendorfplatz. The overground Ubahn station is even illuminated in rainbow colors, paying tribute to Schöneberg's progressive past.
