Seeking a large quiet apartment, we booked an apartment that advertised a peaceful garden aspect. While the room offered a unique old Berlin flavour and ambiance, it was, unfortunately, located directly underneath a well patronized bordello, with constant noise throughout the night (doorbells ringing and heavy footsteps). The proximity to Kurfürstenstraße was very convenient. Breakfast each morning was fine but often overcrowded to the point of being uncomfortable. Reception staff ranged from rude and indifferent to obliging and helpful.
