This is a simple but clean and relatively stylish apartment... the block was mostly very quiet (less so when a German hen party turned up, renting one of the blacksmith's houses, but to be fair they did go indoors and quieten down by about 11pm). And David was great at sending help and sorting out the fact that the TV did not work (a former tenant had stolen a cable) once we alerted him to the problem. The neighbourhood isn't very special, though close to a big park and different tube and bus options nearby.
This appartment is really a lovely place to stay to discover Berlin. It is well-equiped, modern and near the metro and bus stations which allows a lot of visits in the city center. We really enjoy the place and the silence in the middle of city. Thanks to the staff who is really welcoming and who gives to us informations about the neighborhood. We will recommend this place to everyone who want to discover Berlin for few days.
We loved Berlin and we loved this warm apartment in a Berlin neighbourhood just north of the Tiergarten. We liked the personal touch of booking direct with this Berlin holiday apartment business. Westhafen really was home for nine nights. Wish we could have stayed longer. The funky decor comes with plenty of storage, a comfortable bed, a big television, a luxurious bathroom and a compact but very well equipped kitchen - and a friendly welcome. There is a bus stop on the opposite side of the road to take you to the Hauptbahnhof on the No 123, and from there, connections to all parts of Berlin. The nearest U-Bahn station is 10 minutes walk away. The nearest food shop was on the corner of the block so it was very well situated for everything.
Good location for both public transport (bus stop a couple of minutes along the road) and also great if you prefer to walk to see Berlin. It's only an easy 20 - 25 mins walk to the River Spree. From there you can walk along the river past the Reichstag and parliament buildings. If you are prepared to use the river as your guide, you will see most landmarks and experience the different central parts of the city.
Stayed in quite a few city apartments but this one stands apart as a very good, practical choice because of price and level of equipment. The apartment itself is light and bright and whilst having several properties in the area, the owner plays a responsible part in his community. He is not just about maximising profit. This cannot be said of many city lets. We will use again.
