Nice flat in an old building with high ceiling and a small patio. Right in front on the former street a brand new playground for the kids and therefore no car traffic - very quiet for Berlin. Perfect for families with kids. Several supermarkets around the corner (open up to midnight), bakeries etc.. Also travel wise a good location - a streetcar station nearby and then a 15min ride to Alexanderplatz or Hackesche Hoefe.
The apartment is in a very residential neighborhood of East Berlin. It is far from the touristy hotels of West Berlin, which is exactly what we wanted. In fact, every tour guide we spoke to was shocked that we found a place to stay there.
We had no problems getting around. We walked or used the MyTaxi app. There are plenty of grocery and drug stores nearby for supplies.
The apartment is on the ground floor next to a playground (which we loved). Download the WhatsApp app to stay in touch with the owner. There’s no air conditioning, but you won’t need it. The WiFi went down once, and the owner had to text her son to restart it (it appears the cable modem is in a different apartment).
We are a family of five with three pre-teen daughters.
This was an excellent rental. It was roomy and a steal for the amount of space available. We had an excellent time in Berlin and Sabine was so accommodating when it came to helping us figure out what to do with luggage for a later departure. It was also very close to public transport stops.
The apartment is clean, spacious, and located in a quiet residential area, but is only 15 minutes by tram from the centre of Berlin. We were a family party of five, and this apartment was perfect for our needs, with adequate room for us all, a well-equipped kitchen, and a nice clean bathroom. The owner, Sabine, was very helpful and accommodating, allowing us to check-in early and check-out late, and was happy to help with advice and tips on travelling around Berlin, and to recommend local shops and restaurants. I would recommend this apartment for anyone spending some time in Berlin, and would certainly use it again on any future visits there.
The apartment was spacious, clean and well presented. We had everything we needed and had a fantastic holiday in Berlin. So much to see and do and being just outside the centre quiet with a really good mexican restaurant 3 minutes away. Sabine was very helpful and always available. Thank you.
