“Excellent apartment but so noisy!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

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!

Room Tip: Don't even dream of booking a room facing the street, unless the noise of late night revellers i...

Stayed here for 3 nights. Stayed on the second floor. Apartment is great, everything here you'll need: towels, hair dryer, kettle, oven etc also free wifi. It's a good location which is close to a supermarket n not far to walk to most touristy things. The big let down of this apartment was the noise. I got woken up by a loud thumping bass coming from next door. Wouldn't want to stay anymore than 1 or 2 nights .

5 of us stayed at this apartment in June 2012 for 2 nights. we paid about £60 each for the 2 nights.

Check in was very straight forward. Our 2 bedroomed apartment was amazing. Very spacious and extremley clean. The kitchen and bathroom were huge. plenty of space for the 5 of us.

The location for transport links is really good. with an underground station not even 5 minutes walk away.

There are plenty of little bars and restaurants to eat at within 20 mins walk from these apartments.

A taxi from the airport to these apartments will cost about 20 euro.

Excellent location for getting the sites in to, the raido tower isnt far and we managed to visit the wall and holocaust museum etc which are only a few underground tube stops away.

Had a fantastic 2 night break. would stay here again.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

I stayed in this apartment last weekend. And I must say it exceeded my expectations. The kitchen, living, bedrooms, and bathroom were much larger than I expected them to be. The kitchen was fully stocked (kettle, coffee maker, microwave, pots and pans, plates, cuttlery etc..., it even included washing liquid and sponge which I was not expecting).

The internet worked fine! they provided towels! and its clean and modern.

The apartments also have huge character windows which I loved.
The location was also spot on, close to everything and the supermarket is very close.
My only complaint is that I didn't like the shower head, but I'm being a bit particular on this one.

I highly recommend staying here and I would def stay again.
