“Fantastic apartment, quirky and a bit out of the centre”

The Perlebergerstrasse stables apartments all look very good. This one is a bit more informal than the downstairs ones (which is good, we think) and has amazing light through the back windows and skylights. If you wanted to ignore Berlin having got here, it wouldn't be so bad. The back window looks onto trees and you have to work hard to see it's just a back-of-the-house space and not a forest.

Kitchen equipment is very very good, though the specialist coffee machine is a bit overkill. Bathrooms are quirky - glass doors so your ideas of modesty need to be adjusted or hang a towel on them. Picnic terraces throughout the building are a bit of an afterthought - the ground floor one is across the parking spaces from the front door, the first floor one across the public landing, and this one is at least in house but accessed through bathroom #2.

It's a bus and an U-bahn into the centre. Bus M27 to either Turmstr. (U9) or Reinickendorferstr. (U6) is pretty frequent except early, 123 to the Hauptbahnhof is only every 20 mins. The busses will sell you day tickets including the small group one (though some drivers need help finding it, by price is good.) If you want a period one, then the FAR side of Turmstr station has a manned office, but the other local stations are automatic machines only.

Supermarkets are ok. The in-house neighbourhood map directs you to Lidl up the road but in fact the Nah und Gut next to the bus stop is indeed near and good, and has a better bakery than the turkish one marked on the map round the corner. I regret not patronising the turkish grocer opposite Nah und Gut; they did us nice olives and eggs and told us about getting Alpro milk (although Nah und Gut does that as well.) There is spelt bread, but you need to search a bit - this isn't Vienna. For meat choices you may need Lidl.

NOTE that credit cards do not work. You need cash or an EC card (if you are lucky enough to have one).

The apartment heating is also quirky. Stephan and Jan respond well to problems, but just in case of pipe noise (the whole building's heating is in this apartment) take earplugs. We also found some pipes could not be turned off. Noise from the street should be minimal - you're at the back of a courtyard - but massive building renovations were going on in the front block when we were there. With the windows open, no lie in except at weekends!
