This bright room is right at the gate of the breathtaking Tempelhof Park, in the charming Schillerkiez. A well-equipped and optimally connected hideout to enjoy Berlin like a local, especially upcoming Neukölln.
Perfect for couples.
The room is about 20m2 and is quite simple but spacious. It has a double bed (loft-bed), a table for 4 and beautiful high ceilings to make the place feel even more spacious.
Located on ground floor in a quiet-but-happening neighborhood, the apartment has anything you need to work, relax, explore or just enjoy a lovely dinner.
Clean bedsheets (cloakroom) and towels (bathroom) are aplenty at your disposal as well as breakfast needs. Just ask me and they're yours. There's an extra mattress in case you you're with three or just because feel like it.
There's a kitchen-living which allows for up to 5 people to hang out around the table, making it more of a 2,5 room apartment. A nice clean bathroom with plenty fresh towels and a cozy bath round it off. A pair of extra two-person mattresses allow you to divide sleeping arrangements between the rooms as you wish.
In the other room in the flat you'll find my housemate (whose name I won't mention for privacy reasons) is a very cheerful dude in his mid 30s who occasionally has his son over to stay with him. He's also always very and outside, so you'll hardly notice him.
The area is right between the uber-hip Neukölln and two of the most relaxing parks in town (Tempelhof and Hasenheide). If you feel like having a good walk, or want to go bananas: it's all right at your doorstep.
Feel free to use anything from the fridge and shelves. It's not a must, but I'd appreciate it if you restock as well when you use stuff.
The house is best lit by candles and standing lamps in wintertime for that warm, cozy feel. You'll find extra candles in the kitchen for the rooms.
A high-speed Wi-Fi connection is available (50MBps), which is great if you depend on fast internet for your work. But PLEASE be careful not to download anything illegal :)
Interaction with guests
Feel free to ask me anything, anytime, when I'm there. I take pride in being a good host. When I'm not there, I'll usually be very responsive over email or phone.
When I'm home, I'll be using the house the same way as you and will do my best to be considerate with you. In return, I hope for the same from my guests.
Oh and do let me know if you need a custom 'where to go and what to do' guide. There's one waiting for you just in case...
Other things to note
My flatmate and his son sometimes wake up early (as kids do), but will always do their best to respect your privacy and peace in the house.
There is another loft bed (a 'high-bed' in German) for two in the corridor for emergency cases. But that's for when when I'm swamped with friends visiting from abroad.
***It is important for potential guests to know that both loft beds are not suitable for children to sleep on and I'm sorry to say I don't have any plans on making them 'childproof' either. For what it's worth, I can promise you yourself will sleep like a baby up there.
Please please please:
- don't smoke inside. if you must smoke, please do it outside; it's ground floor.
- please take your shoes off in the house.
- be nice to my neighbors :-) and please keep it down after 10PM, it's a quiet neighborhood.
- roll the shutters down when you leave the house. even if only for 5 mins.
- don't download any illegal material.
- try leave the flat in the state you found it: take the thrash out, take care of the kitchen and bathroom.
- sorry, no pets allowed
- enjoy Berlin!
A foodie-techie-sportsy guy from Amsterdam. I ran an animation agency and now do mostly social and cultural projects. Being away for projects abroad occasionally allows me to let the apartment.
The Schillerkiez is amazing, so beware: This charming neighborhood and the vast and calming Tempelhof park will just suck you in and make you want to stay. And I'm very happy with this apartment, it's got everything I need and is located just right in Berlin. In summer time, we take some chairs and a table outside and chill in front of the house.
In case I'm around, I'll be more than happy to help you out with finding the best/coolest places to explore in Berlin. There is so much to see here. But this city is also notoriously dynamic and can change while you blink... which is also what makes it so exciting.
I like to travel to parts of Europe I don't know anything about ^ ^
