“Lovely apartment in great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2011

A very spacious well furnished apartment, with lovely high ceilings, that represented excellent value. We were a family of four in two bedrooms, but the apartment would have taken 6 in comfort. The well equiped kitchen had all the necessary utensils. The Prenzlaver Berg district has a huge choice of bars and restuarants. The Tyros Palestinian Lebanese restaurant round the corner in Kastanienalle 24 has a great range of good value dishes. Great Russian food at the Pasternak. Excellent location for getting into the centre of Berlin quickly. The nearest underground was a 10 minute walk Simon and the staff in the Cafe Krone downstairs were very helpful and knowledgable about Berlin and the immediate area. If you're visiting the Reistag you now need to book on line 3 days in advance

I had the pleasure once again of staying at the Brilliant Apartments, this time in the Gold Apartment. Each time i have stayed here it has always been in a different apartment and this time the Gold Apartment was everything I could have asked for. Tastefully decorated ,spacious and spotlessly clean, the apartments are perfectly located in a premier street with shops restaurants and the metro all within in 5 minutes walking distance. I would highly recommend Brilliant Apartments as the perfect getaway whilst in Berlin.

Room Tip: the Diamant Apartment is the stand out with a balcony high ceilings and polished floor boards.

We made our first visit to Berlin following a family reunion in Thuringia State. We were in search of accommodations that would: (a) be comfortable; (b) be in a location that was both kid- and gay-friendly; (c) be near a metro (U-Bahn) stop; and (d) give us a local's insight into living in Berlin. Our apartment rented through Brilliant Apartments was the perfect choice. We arrived - thanks to the navigation feature of our rental car - right in front of the apartment location. At present, it's off-putting, thanks to the street re-construction project, but I could tell that we were well-located. After making the 5-story walk-up, we entered a bright and airy, two-bedroom apartment with a balcony overlooking a courtyard. The apartment met all our needs. Our son had his own room; we had a bright and airy bedroom; in the morning, we had a breakfast venue complete with coffee and treats; the Cafe Krone on ground floor was ready to assist with perfect espresso and chocolate croissants. When we were ready to explore, we had the amazing city of Berlin at our doorstep. All in all, it's hard to describe a more perfect road trip destination. Brilliant Apartments was simply perfect for our needs. Cheers!!

We stayed for three weeks in Topas 11 and were delighted by the quality of the accommodation and the service provided by Simon Wirth and his assistant, both before we arrived and while we were there.

The room was spacious, very clean, newly decorated and comfortable. The kitchen area was fully equipped which was important for us as we were staying for quite a long time and wanted to be able to cook properly. Simon had provided details of local supermarkets but we particularly enjoyed shopping at the Saturday food market at Kollwitzplatz.

We also appreciated the free use of a washing machine with washing liquid and clothes horse for drying also provided free.

The bathroom was very clean with an efficient shower. There was plenty of storage space in the apartment and the bed was large and comfortable. I didn't use the free wifi but my 3G reception was good.

Simon provided excellent service and information before we arrived and he was available to offer help and advice when required. He owns most of the apartments in the building as well as the cafe at the front and he and his family also live in the building.

The building is in Prenzlauerberg, my favourite part of Berlin; full of pretty streets, interesting shops, good restaurants and bars (many on Oderberger Str itself). There are very good public transport links and you can get to anywhere in Berlin quickly.

I would recommend this apartment for either a long or a short stay.
