In a green, quiet courtyard right next to the famous corner of Schönhauser Allee where street cars pass underneath the U2 train and Kastanienallee with its trendy boutiques and cafés turns into more residential Pappelallee, lies this sweet little apartment with a separate kitchen, bathroom with a tub, one bedroom and one living/dining room. Located on the ground floor with large windows facing the courtyard and extremely high ceilings, the apartment offers a peaceful and relaxing retreat after a busy day in the city along with a little bit of nostalgia for the style of the ‘70s.

About Marc Oberländer
We rent out holiday apartments in Berlin's boroughs of Prenzlauer Berg and Kreuzberg which we ourselves have carefully renovated and equipped.
Marc Oberländer purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Marc Oberländer chose Gleimviertel
Its location right at the beating heart of Prenzlauer Berg along with the seclusion of an idyllic courtyard make this apartment special.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Perfect location. Lovely place to stay.
We loved this Prenzlauer Berg apartment. It was a perfect location for those who are energetic and want to tour Berlin on foot. The ceilings are so high and so are the windows. It is nice and quiet with a nice living/dining space, an adequate small kitchen and the best bathtub I have had the pleasure of bathing in for many years. The tv did not work, though that did not bother us. The hookup to the wifi was only made difficult by the VERY long password printed so small that it took us 3 tries with our reading glasses (age 61) to get it right. The apartment was a bit dusty, but otherwise, just a great place to stay!
This was a great apartment and location. It was on the ground floor and opened to a inner courtyard so we didn't get the street noise. It is in old East Berlin which is a busy place with lots of restaurants. Public Transportation was very close, however, we walked almost everyplace (I would rather walk for 30 minutes than stand waiting for the tram or Metro.). Our host was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again!
The Best !
We have been renting short term apartments for over 25 years when our son was born and hotel rooms did not seem adequate anymore. This rental will be on top of our list. If you want an authentic Berlin feeling, this is the place. The apartment was clean, tastefully decorated and in a great neighborhood. We spent 12 days here. The kitchen is equipped with basics, but we are finicky eaters and found a grocery store close by. We cooked almost every night because we so enjoyed the place. If you are more of the "eating out" crowd, many restaurants in the area plus a "rotisserie" with great roasted chicken called "Rosa" or something like that. Certainly recommend this place to those who want to explore authentic Berlin although the tourist attractions are a few subway stops away and you can even go by foot, more or less 30 to 40 minutes. Also a must on the weekend, the Mauer park flea market. Want to mention Mena who nicely greeted us and gave us all the pertinent info and the owners who always answered our emails when we had a question. All in all a great stay in Berlin.
Apartment fine but owner not fine
Location of apartment was great. Apartment itself was fine. Main problem was in dealing with Marc. After arrival I wrote him a list of problems along with suggestions for improvements in instructions for future renters. The two biggest problems were that we couldn't get the tv to work and there were tons of misquotes inside--we killed about 40 on arrival. Marc's response was he thought I was homesick and what did I want him to do about all of this. I wrote back next to each item either "suggestion for future renter" or "please help" with tv and misquito problem. He never responded back. I am a VBRO owner myself and was appalled at his one response, then lack of response.
Perfect flat in a great neighborhood!
If you want to stay in the real "heart" of Berlin, this is a place to be. The neighborhood doesn't get better than this, and everything you want (dining, shopping, transportation) is right outside your door.
The flat had everything I needed for a week's stay. The bed was very comfortable, and it was nice to have a few friends come over and enjoy the living room. All in all, I am very happy with my time here!
Comfortable in a convenient location
I just spent a week in this comfortable apartment. The descriptions and photos were accurate, and I love the location. It's convenient for tourist sites yet feels like a neighborhood with cafes and bars. Public transportation to anywhere is reached in a 2 minute walk, and a grocery market is across the street. The apartment is on the ground floor (no stairs!) facing a sunny and quiet courtyard. The bedroom is small, but filled with a large comfortable bed and good reading lights. The internet is fast and reliable, and the kitchen is equipped with all the basics. Communication with Marc and Mena was easy. This is not a luxury apartment, but it was perfect for my week in Berlin.
