Wow! Close to the metro. Spacious & clean. This area of Berlin is just alive & vibrant. We were close to everything & yet stayed in a quiet oasis with great views & wonderful amenities. It would be difficult to beat this place.

We especially loved the location of Flowers boarding House - surrounded by lovely cafes and restaurants and quirky shops - it had a really nice cosmopolitan feel to it. Everything is in walking distance and also close to tube station and transport links. Apartment itself was very nice - clean and well kept - with great views across to the TV tower. My only gripe would be that the beds were very hard, and the bedding was very thin - quality mattresses and bedding would make all the difference to an otherwise great find!

The accommodation at Flower's Boardinghouse is excellent - very spacious and spotlessly clean. The complimentary coffee and warm croissants in the morning were a nice touch and the hotel reception staff were extremely helpful and courteous. Please note this is not a hotel so you don't get 24 hour reception or maid service but this was not a problem for us. The location in East Berlin was excellent, surrounded by lovely shops and restaurants and an easy walk to Alexanderplatz for the 'hop on hop off bus tour'. I would highly recommend these apartments and will stay here again the next time I'm in Berlin.

Flower's Boardinghouse Mitte has great apartments in a great location. My husband and I stayed here a little more than a week in May with our teenaged daughter, and we all loved the space (she slept in the "living room" while we took the bedroom) and the neighborhood, which was full of interesting shops and restaurants and just a few minutes' walk from transportation and sights. It was nice to have a full kitchen with appliances and accessories. The people at the desk were very nice and accommodating. But...

If you're staying at Flowers, you're not staying at a "hotel" per se. The front desk was only open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., which was only a a little bit of a problem when we were trying to arrange for late delivery of delayed luggage. The "breakfast" they provide is pretty bare-bones--croissants, coffee, tea. And they don't provide daily maid service--you have to pick up your own towels and wash your own dishes. We didn't particularly mind any of these limitations, as we were able to work around them, and even enjoyed shopping at one of the local groceries for some food to supplement the breakfast. But based on some of the comments on this site you need to decide before booking here if you need a full-service hotel or if you'd rather have the experience of living in this very cool neighborhood.

Back to the neighborhood: yes, it can be a little noisy in the evenings on the street side, as there are tons of people going to the great restaurants and shops, and there's even a little park across the street. But the windows on the street side were amazingly noise-proof. Again, think about your needs: if you want absolute silence and don't want to live in a happening neighborhood, look elsewhere.

We really enjoyed our experience at Flower's Boardinghouse Mitte. We ate at several of the neighborhood restaurants and shopped around in Mitte. We enjoyed the short walk through the neighborhood to the U-Bahn station or one of the local attractions. And we appreciated the experience of living like Berliners for a few days--watching the neighbors heading in to work or school in the morning and letting off a little steam in the evening, grabbing a few groceries at the grocery or the local convenience store.

Room Tip: Apartments that mostly front Mulackstrasse are quieter, and rooms that overlook the courtyard are qu...

My wife and daughter lived at Flower's Boardinghouse during our week-long visit (May 24 - June 1) with our son who is studying in Berlin. As mentioned in the other reviews, the location is great. You can easily walk to Hackescher Markt, Alexanderplatz and Museum Island. The U-bahn is across the street and the S-bahn is a short walk away. Service was attentive but not pushy. They arranged for us to stay an additional night on our way from Prague back to the States. The apartment was well appointed. Having multiple rooms was great. The beds and the pillows may be little on the firm side, but that seems to be a central-European thing. For the money, I have a hard time imagining that we could have found anything better in Berlin.

Room Tip: The corner apartments have a great view, but they also have more exposure to the busy streets. Duri...

A group of 5 of my friends and I stayed at Flowers after a recommendation from a work colleague. We absolutely loved the location, close by to key attractions and surrounded by beautiful boutique shops and restaurants. The friendly staff that met us on arrival were eager to help on all questions we had and made sure we knew about the free tea coffee and crossionts served each morning. The apartment itself was lovely, whilst it was very open and there were not specific closed off bedrooms this worked perfectly for our group of friends so we could spend more time together. For the price we paid I think it is brilliant value. I would definitely recommend this apartment and will be sure to stay here again if I return to Berlin.

I have stayed at this apartment hotel three times in the past few years and would love to stay there again. The rooms are spacious and clean, the living room area is well equipped, the bathroom is big. I love the area - in former East Berlin, very hip, full of young people, local designer boutiques, good cafeterias, restaurants and bars. The hotel is close to Alexanderplatz (ten-minute walk), very near the Museum Isle and the river, also close to all public transport stops that you need - the TXL bus that takes you to Tegel airport, buses 100 and 200, the metro.
