“Home Away from Home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

These apartments are exactly what they say they are - real Berlin apartments in the middle of the city. (In fact, half of the building is still occupied by tenants.) We stayed for one week in the unit on the top floor, the Attic. It's a simple one-bedroom apartment, but it is perfect. Sunny, breezy, comfortable and homey, with new furniture and appliances. Bring some groceries from the store on the corner and you suddenly live there. The building itself is located kind of in the transitional area between Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg. The nearest U-Bahn station is a 5-minute walk away, and there are a few restaurants and cafés just down the block and around the corner. Explore a little more in the direction of P'berg and you will discover a hundred more places to dine from all over the world. For a low-key stay in one of the coolest cities on Earth, I can't recommend Homage highly enough.

We spent a week here in May (in the Attic) - it is simply wonderful. Super clean, spacious, bright and modern. The bed was comfortable, the little balcony perfect for relaxing after a long day of exploring the city. I appreciated the WiFi connection, because I was trying to blog about my trip, and even took photos of some of the decor, because I found the apartment's minimalist style inspiring. It was my first visit to Berlin, and I loved feeling less like a tourist and more like a resident (albeit a very temporary one). Having a full kitchen, which was stocked with everything we could possibly need and more, was reeeeally nice. Everything was spotless and in great condition. I should also mention that the staff were supremely helpful and available whenever we needed them and spoke perfect English (my German is a bit rusty).

Sometimes the professional pictures make places look bigger or smarter than they are, not here! The apartment was exactly as the pictures show. The kitchen is well equipped dishwasher, cooker, etc. All the rooms have high ceilings. It has recently been refurbished.
The style is minimalist - a little too minimal when it came to sheets, as there were none provided for the sofa bed, and although the office will answer calls at the weekend there was no one to rectify the problem. Hopefully they will remember next time.
Top tip: Good for access to the city, the U-Bann (underground) is 10 minutes walk away. Press union jack for ticket on the machine, then Other Tickets, then see that there is a group 1 day ticket for groups of up to 5 persons, excellent for families. (Don't forget to validate (punch) the ticket in the machine nearby.)
Not good for: Parties, this is a residential block, the bare floors would increase the noise, and you are requested to keep noise to a minimum in the evenings.
Not good for: Anyone with mobility issues - there is a lift, but it is up a small flight of stairs.

We stayed at the Homage Apartments for 6 nights and absolutely loved it there! It's in the Mitte district, so it's not in the heart of the action in Berlin but it is a nice quiet place to stay.

The apartment was clean, spacious, really well decorated and had everything we could need - kitchen, comfortable beds, large bathroom, iron + ironing board, washing machine, clothes airer, wifi......

The station is not far away (10 min walk) so it is easy to get around town, but be prepared that it's a little bit of an uphill hike to get there when you have luggage with you :)

There are also plenty little cafes, mini marts and supermarkets nearby.

Nothing to complain about - definitely recommend as a great place to stay.

I stayed there for about 3days. The appartment is great, all the amenities are very convenient. I liked very much the kitchen equipped with all the new staff. The appartment has a balcony with great view of the city roofs. I planned mostly to walk in the city, but the appartment turned out to be so nice that I spent a lot of time indoors inviting my friends to see me and to enjoy the beutiful view.

I stayed there for about 3 days with my family.
Very neat and clean, modern design, a lot of space, everything is new (even that from the outside
the building doesn't look any special).
The view from one of the bedrooms reminds Paris a bit.
Very quiet neighbourhood, short walk to the Underground (U-Bahn).

It was the best place I ever stayed! All is beautiful: modern design, service ! We were with our friends, and it was very convinient: we had both to spend time together and enough possibility to privacy, when we needed. An additional important detail - the optimal location: close to metro, shops etc. I thik it's the best option to stay in Berlin!
