About Tom Frank

after education in music, art, design (diplom in classical music and master of arts in design for medial spaces) i worked several years for opera companies worldwide before i decided to work as creative director, producer and designer. im an idea-guy, so give me a story or a problem and i give you an idea to make something special :) the apartments i offer here are all designed by myself, the lightdesign is unique - they are pieces of my art. my interests are nature, storytelling, movies, music, interior design, interaction design, sounddesign and architecture. i love to create things you `ve never seen before...

Why Tom Frank chose Pankow (Prenzlauer Berg, Weißensee)

You will find a lot of nice places in Berlin. I felt in love with the area because you are in the oldest part of Berlin, so many beautiful historical architecture and you will stay between them all in a modern apartment building with lot of comfort. You are very close to the fashion and artistic district, very close to the museums, you can choose to go by boat, bike, car, train, bus-everything you need is directly around the corner.

What makes this apartment unique

I felt in love with this apartment because of the real oakwood floor and underfloor heating, the big french balcony windows and the very hight wooden doors which end directly under the ceiling. this gives an atmosphere you are staying in a castle :)

Great location, modern building, unsatisfactory payment system

  • 3 of 5

Apartment is in this modern building on the river Spree opposite the Berliner Dom. We were able to walk everywhere and Tom was helpful in getting us settled. What was not clear until we arrived is that the apartment is on the first floor in the rear facing an office building 15 meters away with three different restaurants fifteen feet below that close at 11. There is no view of what is shown in the picture associated with this apartment until we got outside of the building. With the lights on it was a bit like a fish bowl with floor to ceiling windows making the inside of the apartment clearly visible from below and for three stories opposite unless you closed the curtains. We were in Berlin in March so could close the windows which were soundproof. In the summer, with no air conditioning, this could be a problem.

Second big issue was the advertised price. We were required to pay the amount in full when we agreed to take the apartment and, with taxes, a hefty cleaning charge and a 700 euro key deposit it was twice what we had expected from the writeup. So 700 euros (about 1/3 the amount) of our money was tied up for ten weeks for one week of use. Living in North America, we got dinged twice by Visa for the key charge. We left the apartment on March 31 and the credit appeared on our statement on April 8th. Tom needs to change this arrangement to make it more buyer friendly. It is our worst deposit experience in many years of VBRO usage. On this trip, for instance, we stayed also in Prague where the deposit was 15%, the rest payable in cash or credit on arrival. In Paris, it is 50% with the same payment system. There were no additional key or security deposits or cleaning charges. All three places we are staying about a week and were comparable on a quality scale.

While the apartment was very tidy, it could have been cleaner, especially given the hefty cleaning charge.

We are travelling with a car and Tom was very helpful arranging a discount for parking located safely in the building which we appreciated. He was also very helpful directing us to websites for cultural events and tickets. His communication was prompt and addressed our questions as they arose.

Owner's Response: Thanks Michael for your review. I think there is no need to compare with Paris or Prague. You can find in Berlin similar apartments with other conditions and you can find my apartment on other booking websites also with other conditions. There was no other possibility to choose a different payment option because we cancelled another tenant for the same period that Michael could complete his booking. Why should we ask only for 15 or 50% of the rental amount when we loose a full amount from another booking? Its very unfair that Michael are not telling the full story and "providing" to make a change to be more "buyer friendly". I think we were more than buyer friendly to cancel another guest who already ask to extend his stay and giving the possibility for Michael to book. Coming up with these reason in the review is not fair too because this payment option was chosen by Michael when he booked. We never changed it and this was a condition of his booking. There is no possibility to do it in any way better and if somebody is responsible for this payment method than only Michael can be judged because he agreed with these conditions so that we were able to cancel the other guest. That the apartment has no river view is advertised and also no reason for a complain when the guest would have read the description carefully. The advantage is that on the waterside every day hundreds of tourists walking from the main street to all the museums at museum island. Its much more noisy than the apartment which was used by Michael and his wife. To describe it like a fish bowl is the first time happen over the years and can come just from the missing knowledge that the windows are not only sound proved, they have also a sun protection and a visible protection. During the day nobody can look inside the apartment from outside, this is only possible in the night with switched light on (but enough curtains to cover). The offices opposite are empty after 6pm and nobody can see anything what is inside the apartment. German architects in this price range and in the centre of Berlin are not stupid. By the way Michael, the visible protection is not build in on the opposite side where the offices are. Thats the reason that you as guest can look inside the offices but the office people cant look inside the apartment. Better to ask before you judge. Doesnt matter if you book on VRBO or homeaway, both are advertising only the "rental amount" for ALL listings,without booking fees or deposit

Great place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We were met by Tom upon arrival and he provided us a very detailed description of the apartment and the surrounding area. He is an excellent property manager of an excellent property. We were very happy with our choice the central location was easy to get to from airport. It was easy to walk or use public transportation to all the important sites the city has to offer. The apartment was very clean. The bed was comfortable we used the kitchen several times and it worked out very well. We look forward to spending our next visit to Berlin in the same apartment.

Luxury in the Heart of Berlin

  • 5 of 5

This was a last minute rental as our Airbnb in Berlin fell through. We loved Berlin and a large part of it was staying in this high ceilinged, spacious, beautiful home for 6 days. What a find! The property is located just across the bridge from Museum Island. It's a modern apt/office building in a modern part of Berlin near the river, with many restaurants, coffee shops and public transport tram and the station at Hackescher Markt very closeby. The apt is as described and the construction/furnishing/decor is of very high quality, new, and clean. The in-floor heating was amazing! Tom was very helpful, working with us, answering our questions promptly and giving very meticulous instructions for our arrival and departure. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Wonderful proeprty and excellent location

  • 5 of 5

I was in Berlin for 9 days for a mix of work and fun. This apartment was perfect for the stay. It is spacious and comfortable, with everything you need to enjoy your stay. The location cannot be beat, right next to the Berliner Dom, Alexanderplatz, and in minutes take a stroll down the famous Unter den Linden street to the Brandenburg Tor. Tom was a great host and he gave us the full tour of the apartment and all the restaurants in the area. The kitchen is stocked with every appliance you would need during your stay!

Overall we had a wonderful stay at the apartment and would recommend to anyone coming for work or fun!
