You’re an artist, designer or photographer? World travelled, work in new media or in music? Here you will find one of Berlin's creative roots. From romantic to rock’n’roll. From the unusual to the totally crazy. From trash to art. Simply everything is here on your doorstep.
Pardon, of course "normal people" are also welcome to become acquainted with the heart of Kreuzberg and get an authentic picture of Germany’s most exciting area and one of the world's most exciting districts.
The location is absolutely perfect – without ifs and buts! You will hardly find anything comparable in Berlin.
The very central location allows direct and fast access to all destinations in West and East Berlin. Free parking is possible on the street in front of the house.
The apartment was fully renovated in January 2012. All of the rooms have been overhauled, and fully refitted with new furnishings, with attention to every detail. We have put an emphasis here on the combination of original design with unique pieces, in conjunction with comfort. In this way, a delightful and charming period-piece bed (matching the house) and a media-corner with an iPod connector complement each other wonderfully.
In the same house, you can also book a large 2-bedroom apartment (65 sqm) or a stylish 4-bedroom apartment (110 sqm).
The apartment is situated in Berlin's Kreuzberg district. Its central location means that it is not far from Kudamm in the west, or Potsdamer Platz, Alexanderplatz, the Brandenburg Gate, Unter den Linden or the government quarter in the east. You will live in a perfect location between city east and city west.
The apartment has generous space for luggage and clothes. The fully equipped, new kitchen - with cooker, fridge, crockery and utensils (from wine glasses to pots and pans), cutlery, coffee machine, toaster – lends itself to both a quick breakfast as well as a sumptuous dinner. Additionally, there is a dishwasher.
Optimally situated in an interesting quarter of the multicultural district Kreuzberg, you will be in the centre of Berlin’s trendy, up-and-coming zone. Art and culture combine with a wonderfully vibrant flair. You will be living at the beginning of the Oranienstrasse, which is the central nerve of the quarter, and which formerly had the magical postcode “Kreuzberg SO 36” (a famous location of the same name is also nearby).
Countless shopping facilities, and a lively cultural scene and nightlife are right on your doorstep. This area is particularly known for that, and it attracts curious visitors from all over the world. A large and beautiful market on Maybachufer is nearby and is considered one of the most interesting in Berlin. There is also a well-known organic market right outside your door, and an organic shop in the house.
You will only be a few metres walk away from a famous swimming pool, and likewise a large park (Görlitzer Bahnhof). Numerable attractions in the area have been (or will be) described in books, songs and films.
A special characteristic of this area is above-ground subway, which was built in 1902, as the first in Germany.
There is here a typical mixture of antique shops, numerous cafes and restaurants, art shops, galleries, antiquarian bookstores, and small businesses. The many small and medium sized shops in the vicinity entice you to a rich and varied shopping experience.
Berlin has an extensive public transport network. Many of the tourist attractions are easily and quickly accessible. Because of the apartment’s central location, a lot of visitors leave their cars parked or don't even come to town by car at all.
The apartment is situated directly between the Berlin subway stations Kottbusser Tor and Görlitzer Bahnhof. Several subway lines, (night) busses and a taxi stand are also nearby. With the bus you can reach Checkpoint Charlie, Potsdamer Platz, the Bauhaus Museum, Kudamm and many other of Berlin’s tourist attractions, all quickly and directly.
The nearest motorway exit is located a few minutes away south of the apartment and is called Tempelhofer Dam (A100).

Berlin-Kreuzberg: at the centre of the action
Lausitzer Platz was created in 1882. Between 1890-93 the Emmaus Kirche (church) was built. In its original form, before its destruction in the Second World War, this was the largest church in Berlin, the Berlin Cathedral excepted.
The first underground railway in Germany went into operation in 1902, after six years of construction, and travelled past Lausitzer Platz as an elevated railway.
Following the 1st of May Festival in 1987 (this workers’ day festival has been held since the beginning of the eighties) the Lausitzer Platz witnessed street battles. These "May riots" developed out of the "traditional" conflicts on 1 May in Berlin.
In 1989 Kreuzberg was released, by the fall of the Berlin Wall, from its status as an “island” in the centre of Berlin.

We spent 7 nights in the apartment. The location is superb (not in the center, but nice and quiet neighborhood). Gabi was so kind and gave us the keys, even when we got there a bit late. Supermarket, U and S stations and bus, literally 1 min walking. The apartment is spacious for 2 people, clean, and with all the amenities you can need, including extra towels and sheets. The kitchen is big enough to eat in there, and very clean. Bathroom small but enough to feel confortable. The only bad thing I would say about the apartment is that the mattress is old and not so confortable (but we survived). No problems with the wifi and hot water. I would repeat without doubt...but more happily if they change the mattress.....XD
The apartment is great, big, clean and very good situated. Check in/out was very easy.

The apartment is right on Nollendorfplatz, overlooking the uBahn station. It was clean, tidy and well laid out. The sofa-bed in the living room was lacking covers. The kitchen was very well equipped despite its small size. It was particularly nice to find that tea bags and milk had been provided. The kitchen window was badly cracked.
The bathroom/toilet is also small and somewhat cramped. It was clean and tidy. The bedroom was sparsely furnished but entirely adequate. The bed was comfortable.
The living room was a bit to warm at times: despite it being Summer and pretty warm the radiators were warm in the evenings so the windows and doors had to be opened to keep the room at a comfortable temperature. The bedroom was much cooler.
The location is great. The area is lively and relaxed at the same time. Maaßenstraße is lined with bars and restaurants. Winterfeldplatz has a regular market with good fresh produce. There is a good, well stocked supermarket right below the apartment. One can be in the heart of the tourist areas in minutes.
As the apartment is on a busy street expect some noise at night: it was not a problem at any point. Just sitting on the balcony looking over the city was a nice relaxing to spend some time.
I would certainly book this place again were it available.
Great location. Appartment was very well maintained. The possibility to take a hot bath after a long day of sightseeing is very nice. We enjoyed our stay in Berlin! Thank you!
our stay in this flat was perfect. Location is excellent and the flat was really well equipped and in a very good state. its was also perfectly clean.
So I would definitely recommend it as the area is also great !
Thanks for welcoming us there.
the apartment is very good and the location too , is well connected and there are supermarkets nearby. the only problem was trying to let us know the owner of the apartment , we did not answer the phone in the 5 days we were .
Friendly and helpful host who is quick to respond to the inquiries. Nice centrally located apartment in a neighborhood with a cozy and atmospheric café district just around the corner. Clean and neat. However, we missed some decent chairs to sit in. At least, dining chairs with backs, when there in addition to the benches at the table is only a 2-seater sofa bed. It would also have been nice to be able to hang our clothes on a rack in the bedroom. Otherwise, nice apartment.
The owner is friendly, location is good, the place is nice but could be better maintained. The dishes were extremely limited (1 wine glass and 2 water glasses are not quite enough even for a couple), there was only 2 small bath towels...and a leaky fosset in the bathroom made it hard to keep the floor dry... If these things were fixed i would otherwise highly recommend the place!
