Stayed here in October 2010 on a 4 day stay to Berlin. Booked via the OTA Berlin site and the booking process was very smooth and they replied with exact details. On arrival, they were very helpful and gave us some great advice on what areas to visit.
Apartments are 1min from Rosa-Luzemburg U-Bahn stop, with is one stop from the very central Alexandra Platz, which itself is walking distance. There is a tram stop close by but we didn't use trams during our stay.
We were in the Handel Apartment. The shower and bathroom were adequate, the room was spacious and had a well equipped kitchen area which we used to make breakfast each morning. There is a grocery stop nearby for essentials.
The nearby Prenzlauer Berg (5-10min) walk has loads of traditional bars and restaurants. The apartments are based in the east of the city which is where the majority of the tourist attractions are, but you the k’dam are of the West part (near Zoo) is more modern and Westernised with a bigger range of shops.
If returning to Berlin, I will certainly stay here again. The one draw back was that there were 2 twin beds which we pushed together to make a double, but apart from that the Apartment was great. It was perfect for 2 people for a short stay.
Our apartment was on 4th floor and don’t think there was a lift, but it didn’t matter for us, but if you struggle with stairs, you may want to ask them for an apartment on a lower floor.
Nearby we ate in a lovely restaurant Maison d’courage (just 2/3 mins up the Schönhauser Allee). On the last night we ate in Susan’s (also beside apartments) and the food was great. For both you may need a little help from phrase book, but hard to beat a bit of culture on holiday. It is Germany after all.
On our first day we used the Fat Tire Bike Tour company. We did the Berlin City tour, it was 20euro and it was well worth the money. Best way to see the city if the weather is good. Our guide Neil was excellent, friendly and knew his stuff about Berlin and he was able to answer everyone’s questions.
