We stayed here 22/01/08 - 26/01/08 and cannot not recommend this apartment enough, the quality of the accommodation is exceptional !!
If you are concerned about staying in a residential area....don't be!
The apartment is in Stephanstrasse which is only a few mins walk from Birkenstrasse UBhan which is just three stops from Zoo Station which is a major interchange. The Berlin underground is fast and efficient & we were surprised how quickly & easily we could get to places of interest.
Bakers, Supermarkets, restaurants, playground and a couple of bars all within 3 - 4 mins walk. We recommend Dicker Engel right next to Birkenstrasse UBahn for traditional German food (ask for the English menu).
Located on the top floor of a 4 storey building ( 4 flights of stairs so not good for anyone with mobility problems) the apartment (apmnt) is BIG. A large living area with sofa and chairs, TV (only the news channels are in English) DVd and Internet, a dinig area with a wonderfully rustic dining table seating 8 and the kitchen area running along the back wall. The Kitchen area is VERY well equipped & I can't think of anything that you would need that wasn't provided.
The bathroom is large and the bath and shower are excellent with plenty of hot water.
There are two bedrooms with very comfortable double beds
The apmnt was spotlessly clean, very warm and comfortable, exceptionally well equiped and, not being directly on a street, nice and quiet and if this isn't enough it also has a lot of history from the "commune" period of Berlin.
The owner, Stephan, was freindly & approachable, speaks good English & was even kind enough to book us a taxi for the airport on our return.
Berlin is a great place to visit, don't miss the Zoo, the Olympic stadium (take the audio tour) & the food hall of the KaDeWa department store & if you want a really great place to stay then choose Stephans attic loft apartment as I don't you'll find better accomodation for the price anywhere in Berlin.
Tourists without a Car,
