Nice 2 room appartment in a traditional old school Berlin building with high ceilings in the heart of Berlin in Prenzlauer Berg / Bötzow Kietz. There are many restaurants, stores and a beautiful Park less than a five minute walk away, and a six minute tramride from the Alexander Platz. Our neighbourhood is in an active and vibrant, yet civilized part of the city close to all the famous Berlin Landmarks. The 52 hectare park has several playgrounds and an outdoor cinema in the summer.
1000 square foot (90 square meter) ground floor private apartment at the center of the city, with excellent public transportation access (even late at night) in a safe upsacale neighbourhood. The apartment is in a historic building and has 12 foot (3.5meter) high ceilings, and a brand new standalone gas tankless waterheater, so you will never run out of hot water when you are in the shower. Both the livingroom and the bedroom feature natural hardwood floors. The kitchen has a full sized refrigirator, a two burner induction cooking surface and brand new pots and cooking utensils as well as a microwave. In the large bathroom there is a full sized bathtub and shower. In order to make sure you get he proper rest, there is a solid wood frame bed (none of this ikea plywood) with premium mattresses. Like most apartments here, there is no AC, but because of the three foot thick walls, the Apartment stays nice and cool, even on the hottest summer days, and nice and warm in the winter. If you are bringing your children, please let us know and we will set up a childrens bunkbed or crib for them.
This is a private apartment and all parts of the apartment are accesible to the guest.
Interaction with guests
I have both my Art Gallery and personal apartment nearby, so I would be immediately available should you need assistance with anything. Under normal circumstances though, unless you come by the Gallery during the day, we will only see each other at checkin and checkout.
Other things to note
Public transportation will get you everywhere easily, and Berlin is generally safer than most big cities during the day, but in the evening there are areas that should be avoided, and where the public transportation access is limited after a certain time. This is something to keep in mind when choosing a place, because one taxi ride due to missing the last train, if you are further out, will quickly eat up anything you may have saved by living further away from the center.
I like to keep it simple, so all I ask of guests is that they treat the place like they would like others to treat thier own, and to leave it in the same state as when they arrived.Please also take into account that although you are on vacation (which I want you to enjoy), most of the others in the building have work in the morning / young children, so please respect the quite hours where neighbours should not be able to hear each other (19:00-7:00). Doing this will allow me to continue hosting.
The Maximum occupancy is two adults and two children. (The children would count as additional guests) Please give us advance notice if you are bringing your children so we can put in the bunkbed for them.
