'WINNER - Best Vacation Rental, Berlin'

Downtown city landmark near Checkpoint Charlie

Best location if you want to reach most attractions on foot.


The house is a protected monument to one of the most famous areas of Berlin, Kreuzberg, also known as X-Berg, in one of Berlin's most famous streets. Built in 1895 Gutschow House, an important work of historicism (Neo-Gothic and Neo-Renaissance), is because of the elaborate façade design, its location, its history and as the only house in this area that 100% of the 2. World War II, the landmark of southern Friedrichstrasse. From 1910 to 1990, the magician's mecca was through the magical headquarters of the world-famous and respected wizard Conradi-Horster. Its magic protects until today the uniqueness of this place and its inhabitants. In 2006, the Greens created a unique opportunity for the then tenants: the right to buy the whole house, 21 apartments. But why did only a mother with two children make use of this right and promise to pay millions of pounds within 30 days that she did not have? How could she fight against gentrification by battling bankers and lawyers with the help of filmmakers? MyBerlinStyle is this moving Berlin past and present.

'Feel the history; Love the Comfort 'by Curious Nellie:

'Six of us - women' d'un certain age'- stayed here at the beginning of this winter and werewolf all delighted with our choice. The building is beautiful Itself, redolent of end of empire flourish, while the apartment, with the gracious proportions of at Earlier era is warm and welcoming. We loved the beautiful original wooden floors, decorative plasterwork on the the bedroom ceilings, the sense of space, as well as the terrific shower in a stylish, modern bathroom. Our internal homemakers thrilled to the quality and solidity of the linens and general fittings (and dreamy beds). The kitchen is really well equipped so we did not just eat breakfast there but some prepared meals too, though there are some good restaurants close by. The main room and the bedrooms are really roomy, not even with 6 of us did it ever feel crowded. Marion, our host in Berlin, which welcoming and gave some really useful tips on eating out and things to do, and his welcome package which chosen with care - organic and delicious.

The location is great! so close to Museum Island did it makes a very comfortable stroll before a trip to the unmissable Pergamon. But if walking's not your thing then the wonderful Berlin public transport system is accessible only 2 mins away at the Cook Street stop. Another visit you must make is to the Jewish Museum Which is so only 2 mins walk from the building. This is a great city for history and culture fans, so get booking! you will not regret choosing this apartment as your base for your explorations. But first get fit and keep your luggage minimal; there are two flights to walk up. ' (Dear Curiousnellie, Apartments 11 and 12 have an elevator since 2014.)

Perfect apartment in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about what a beautiful apartment this is. It's right in the middle of Berlin, convenient to transportation, shopping, restaurants, museums. The owner was accessible but not intrusive and helped us get to know the neighborhood at the beginning of our stay. This is one of the nicest rentals I've ever stayed in.

This is a beautiful property in a great area.

It is always a risk when you book a property you have never seen. Rest easy-this one really is as good as it looks.

Location-Check Point Charlie is about three blocks away. In addition there are amazing restaurants within walking distance(We especially loved Taverna Athena and Umami!). Also, there are multiple grocery stores close by.

The apartment itself is well outfitted. Comfortable beds, loaded kitchen, plenty of room to stretch out.

Marion was an amazing host. He checked in on us, left us a local phone, and even helped us with getting a cab.

I highly recommend this property to anyone wishing to visit Berlin.

Easy to access, clean, nice

  • 4 of 5

Property is in questionable neighborhood but located 10-15 mins from nice area, shopping, restaurants. Came to run Berlin Marathon. Walking distance to & from start line.

Another unit had a late night loud party the night before Marathon and owner did nothing to shut it down. Be ready to pay additional tax once you're checked in.
