My home is a large-pre-war apartment in Friedenau, a nice residential area in the south of Schöneberg. The neighborhood is leafy and rather quiet but has great public transport access. There are local shops, cafes and restaurant as well as a shopping mile close by.

The space

Located in Berlin Friedenau, a leafy residential district close to everything. Easy access to buses, subway (U-Bahn), rapid transit (S-Bahn) and even freeway. Room with a balcony and cozy pre-war feel. Host is tri-lingual long-time Berlin resident from NY with excellent hosting and cooking skills.

The apartment is located in the Schöneberg district and has many cafés and restaurants. The building is a pre-war structure built in the early 20th century. The apartment is located on a raised ground floor. There is a balcony which you can enter from your private room. The neighborhood is pretty quiet and cozy. The apartment itself is very quiet, too (although you have quick access to the center of Berlin). The room is furnished with a double bed. There is also the possibility of a 2nd guest room if the first one is occuppied. This one has a double bed and is somewhat larger. You can use the fully equipped kitchen and the bathroom with sink and a tub/shower combination. Free internet use (W-Lan) inclusive.

Guest access

There is open access to the living/dining room and the kitchen

Easy access to public transportation makes it a quiet spot to stay but from which you can still access all that Berlin has to offer.

Donna was a fantastic host. From the minute we arrived, we were greeted with enthusiasm. She was very flexible with us, we got a key, we could go out & come home whenever we would, she even gave us recommendations on which places/clubs (not) to visit in Berlin! We had some wonderful conversations with her & will definitely return again!

Hi Franca, Just wanted to let you know that another guest canceled a reservation without informing me and I mistakenly canceled yours, which led to a series of errors including my posting being temporarily removed. Sorry re the mix-up. Hope you have a nice stay in Berlin. Best regards, Donna
