“Outstanding apartment”

This is an excellent apartment which is particularly well situated and ideal for getting around Berlin. Alexanderplatz is a twenty minute stroll, the underground 500 yards away. There is a supermarket at the end of the road and a bakery a few doors down. The apartment itself is warm, well-furnished and has all you could reasonably desire for a stay in Berlin - be it for a few days or a few weeks. The owner, Simone, is exceptionally helpful and communications throughout were excellent. I have every intention of returning to stay in this apartment again as soon as possible and recommend it to you, dear reader, unreservedly.

“Excellent apartment, near the Alexanderplatz”
Reviewed October 8, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Simone just finished cleaning when we arrived. She told us about the things in the apartment and how to use them. She also showed us around in the neighbourhood on a map with some nearby shops and restaurants. The apartment itself was excellent, everything you need for a week in Berlin was there. We had a great time, also thanks to the apartment.

Many thanks!

“Lovely, quiet apartment in residential neighborhood”
Reviewed September 13, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The apartment was very comfortable, close to the Tram and UBan. There is slso a park for runners, bike rentals and a grocery just up the block. The apartment is a short 10 minute ride to Alexanderplatz. Simone is a a terrific, responsible host and took care of all our needs. I would stay there again.

“Great location, comfortable apartment”
Reviewed December 19, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Simone met us as arranged and gave us a comprehensive tour of the apartment which was as advertised, and spotlessly clean. We found the apartment to be comfortable, with adequate cooking facilities, great wifi and heating. It was very close to public transport and we found it very easy to get around Berlin from the apartment. At the end of our stay, Simone checked in with us via email, wishing us a pleasant onward journey.

“Excellent accommodation and location”
Reviewed October 12, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

I booked the apartment on the strength of the reviews and thankfully I can confirm that the apartment was everything we expected. The apartment is part of a block with an access door off the street and then your own access door into your apartment, so very safe. Once in the apartment it has everything you need for your stay, from the kettle to the dishwasher. Everywhere was spotless, towels fresh and clean, bedding fresh and ironed.

N.B. I have just read some of the ratings criteria - If you have a disability i.e. use a wheelchair, you would need to ascend 5 fairly steep stairs to get to the apartment door. Could be a slight factor for some?

The owner Simone was perfect. She is reliable and always gets back to you and will offer advice and I can't emphasis enough about how well located the apartment was to facilitate out visit to Berlin.

We arrived at Berlin via Schonefeld. Its only a short walk [500 metres or so] to the rail terminal; Flughafen Berlin-Schonefeld. We opted for the RE7 or RB14 trains which are the express trains and takes about 25-30 minutes to get to Ostbahnof. These trains run every 30 minutes, about 25 minutes past the hour and 5 minutes to the hour, but check the times. There are other trains, but that's down to you.

You need to get off at Ostbahnof. and pick up the subway train to Alexanderpatz; there was no direct route, but its only two stops to Alexanderplatz. The cost of a single ticket for the necessary travel in the ABC zones which you need was 3.70 Euro. Remember to validate your ticket at the machines on the platforms and you have about 2 hours to complete your travel unless you buy a Day Ticket. Take the time to explore the ticket options, we saved money by buying a Group Ticket for 4 rather than 4 Single Day tickets.

The apartment is situated 2 stops out of Alexanderplatz. If your travelling by underground take the U5 towards Honow. You get off at Strausberger Platz and walk no more than 500 metres along Lebuser Str onto Friedrichsberger Str. Don't be put off, it was nothing to travel the short distance [1.7km] and once here you get a sense of the real Berlin.

There are some local restaurants near-by, but my recommendation is the Vietnamese restaurant on Lebuser Str which also has a mini shop and bakery adjacent to it; the coconut macaroons are a must. Don't worry if you cant speak German, they have an English [Australian] menu for the restaurant.

Some recommendations. If you want to visit the Reichstag [inside] make sure you book well in advance, you won't get in just turning up on the day. If you want to go up the Dome you can get tickets on the day, but expect to wait up to an hour in the queue for a slot sometime that day or the next two days after.

If you want the Beer Festival experience, then you can't do much better than booking an evening table at Hofbrau Berlin which is about 700 metres from Alexanderplatz close to the junction of Karl-Marx-Allee and Karl Liebknecht StraBe. Its the atmosphere your after, not necessarily the food. Many Berliners wear national costume :)

Make sure you do Television Tower in Alexanderplatz; you can't miss it. it's the big tower thing with the golf ball at the top. The views on a clear day are great and put Berlin into perspective. There is a restaurant at the top, but I would suggest reading the reviews first.

Hope this info helps?

We stayed for a week and found the apartment to be very clean and in a great location for the metro. There was a huge local park which was nice to walk to in the evenings. The owner Simone was very helpful and sent us transport details and recommended local swimming lakes and lidos as there was a heat wave the week we stayed. It was a wonderful week in Berlin.

“Really comfortable, quiet and convenient place to stay.”
Reviewed July 30, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed here for a week, and found the apartment to be very comfortable, very quiet, and well placed for public transport (U-bahn, tram and bus). There are a bakery, convenience store and noodle restaurant very close by on the same street, two supermarkets within a 10 minutes walk, and Friedrichshain park for evening strolls and the wonderful open air cinema. Prenzlauer Berg cafes and restaurants 20 minutes walk away. Simone couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend.
