Four of us stayed in the Strauss Apartment in this building for a weekend last month. The apartment building is in an excellent location and we walked almost everywhere. It's about a 15 minute walk to Alexanderplatz, and about 20 minutes in the other direction to the flea market in Mauer Park. The street itself has some great bars and restaurants (try the Due Forni Pizzeria!) and some excellent supermarkets and coffee shops.
The apartment is large, bright and airy, spotless and well equipped. We received a nice welcome and checked in and out without any problems. The building itself is perfectly safe and again very clean. We paid by credit card in their Metzer Strasse office (just around the corner) and again the Staff there were very friendly with loads of good tourist information for us.
So why only 3 stars? Well, two of our party had a bedroom facing on to the street, and because of the bar on the ground floor didn't get one night's decent sleep. It is to be expected that bars are going to be noisy at weekends, but if there was a warning about the noise issue on the website when I booked, then I certainly didn't see it.
I would have no hesitation about booking with this agency again, but if I chose an apartment in this building I would be sure to stipulate that it would not be facing the street. A bad night's sleep definitely impairs your enjoyment of a holiday and three noisy nights in a row is a bit hard to take!
