About the property

Upmarket Frierichshain Studio Apartment With Balcony & WiFi In Great Location

Welcome to our home in beautiful Berlin!

As we love traveling all over the world, our home is available for you to enjoy when we are not in Berlin. Enjoy your stay and hopefully you too will feel like "Ich bin ein Berliner" when you say goodbye.


The 40m2 apartment is situated on the first floor of the side wing with balcony overlooking a landscaped courtyard. This makes the apartment very quiet as there is no noise from the street. Free WiFi internet.

The living room offers a complete built-in wall kitchen with all the appliances needed such as a large fridge with separate freezer, baking oven, 4-plate cooking hob (stove), microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, kettle and toaster. Good supply of crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils. There is even a indoor BBQ grill for our Aussie and South African friends.

The fold-away table and chairs can be used outside on the balcony or for dining / working inside.

A large queen size (160mm X 200mm) wall-bed ensures a comfortable sleep, but also lots of extra space when folded up against the wall - your choice!

A 3-seater corner couch which can be transformed into a double sleeper couch in no time completes the layout.

From all areas you can enjoy watching HD channels on the wall mounted 40" smart TV - only allowed if Berlin get's too much... ;-)

A separate room leading onto the bathroom can be used as walk-in closet, luggage storage (if you don't like to unpack), or additional sleeping arrangement on the single sleeper sofa. Here you also find the washing machine cupboard.

The Neighborhood

We know the importance of having shops and good transport connections within close walking distance, and this was one of the main considerations for selecting this apartment when we moved to Berlin, as you have all of this on your doorstep.

Getting Around

Friedrichshain is a trendy part of former East Berlin bordering Mitte (centre), Prenzlauer Berg and Kreuzberg. Restaurants, Cafes and Bars line the streets as you walk out the door and offer entertainment and cuisine from all parts of the world.

The LiDL Supermarket is 250m (3 minute walk) away.

Ostkreuz Station 350m (5 minute walk) away, is one of the main connections in Berlin. From here a number of S-Bahn services (S-5; S-7 & S-75) takes you to the centre of Berlin (Alexanderplatz) in only 10 minutes every 5 minutes from Gleis (platform) 8. At Ostkreuz Station you can also get a direct connection to Schonefeld Airport which takes approx. 25 minutes on the S-Bahn (S-9).

House Rules

We're not to fond of too many rules... Respect and consideration for others is all that matters. As the apartment is also our home, we kindly request that you treat it as your own.

Please respect your neighbors and limit noise late at night.

No smoking is allowed inside the apartment - please use the balcony for this purpose.

Sleeps 2 Adults and 2 Children OR 3 Adults only.

Babies u/2 stay free in baby bed (upon request)

Please do not leave cushions for balcony furniture outside.

About Frans Jordaan-Viljoen

Love to travel and experience other parts of the world - roads often less travelled... Favourite cities are Cape Town and Berlin. Other places include Mallorca and a Little Karoo farm in Africa. I believe that life's a journey - not a destination, and more importantly: have NO regrets!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment is exactly as described with modern, comfortable furniture, great shower and fully equipped for a short or long term stay. The balcony is an added bonus and as this and other windows open on to an enclosed courtyard it was very quiet. We found great restaurants and bars in walking distance and the train station is just a short walk away giving easy access to the airport and central Berlin. We would have no hesitation in recommending and would definitely stay again if we visit Berlin in the future .

Amazing apartment in the perfect area!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful apartment. It has everything you need and the kitchen is very well equipped. Modern and really pretty. The balcony is a great extra for such a city apartment in Berlin! The area itself is perfect. So many restaurants and cafes. Central and very close to a well connected train station. The tram also a block away. I would highly recommend this little gem in Berlin!

enttäuschend - definitiv nicht wie angegeben

  • 1 of 5

Wir reisten an holten die Schlüssel in einem Kiosk ab und fuhren zur Wohnung.Der erste Eindruck war nicht gut und es wurde nach genauem Hinschauen noch viel schlimmer.Die Wohnung sollte gereinigt sein was Sie definitiv nicht war . Überall Haare von den Vor-Mietern im Bett , Blaubeeren und Verpackungsmüll auf dem Boden ,offene gebrauchte Lebensmittel im Kühlschrank , Gefrierschrank und auf dem Balkon,Gläser voller Wasserflecken und Geschirr voll mit Fettfingern,Toilette war nicht gereinigt ganz zu schweigen von der Dusche.Der Klopapier-Halter fiel sofort nach einmal berühren von der Wand ab .Müll im Mülleimer,Flecken auf dem Boden und haufenweise dicke Staubschichten überall.Das Badezimmer war so Mini geschnittene das man kaum vernünftig auf der Toilette sitzen konnte und die Tür offen ließ um keine Platzangst zu bekommen.Wir beschwerten uns und man sicherte uns zu das in der nächsten Stunde die Putzfrau nochmal käme was letztendlich leider fast drei Stunden gedauert hat bis diese kam.Sie tat so als wäre nix und machte widerwillig den Dreck weg den wir ihr zeigten... von Luxus-Studio leider definitiv keinerlei Spur.Leider gab es auch keinen Esstisch - Gott sei Dank hatten wir wenigstens Glück das jeden Tag gutes Wetter war und wir wenigstens gequetscht auf dem kleinen Balkon Frühstück konnten...Leider komplett anders als erwartet und es angepriesen war - wirklich eine Enttäuschung-nicht zu empfehlen! Die Lage der Wohnung hingegen war super.
