Elegant, Charming & Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We were tired and a bit out sorts having just driven in from Hamburg. The owner (Ben) buzzed us in and showed us the apartment. The unit is very spacious for two people. It has high ceilings, a pleasant little kitchen and a well lit bathroom with a shower, tub and laundry. It was Sunday when we arrived and the grocery stores were all closed, but Ben graciously offered us a bottle of wine and a few local beers to tide us through. The apartment is in the Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg area about 2 miles from Berlin central. Transit is readily available, but we mostly walked and biked. There are coffee shops, grocery stores and cafes nearby. Ben recommended two local resteraunts "3 Schwestern" and "zum Mond". They were both amazing. Did I mention that parking on the street is free?

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The bus stop is just a few doors down. We took the 147, on the advice of our host Ben, to Unter den Linden, which is near the Brandanburg Gate. We took the Greyline Hop on/off bus near there. Ben recommended two great restaurants within walking distance. We were lucky enough to find a parking spot right in front of the apartment and left the car there for four days. The area is a little dicey and wouldn't want to be walking it at night. Ben was a very gracious and helpful host. Even helped with a anxiety provoking banking issue. Berlin center is beautiful and modern. Stunning and creative architecture. Do not miss the Berlin War Museum and theJewiish / Holocaust museum. Could easily spend the entire day day at the latter.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Ben's lovely apartment in Mitte -- interestingly enough in a wonderful turn-of-the-century building my Berlin friends had noted and admired on a walk last year after dining at a nearby restaurant. First: the area: I lived in Kreuzberg when the Wall was up -- now Mitte, former East, has to be the most wonderful area in Berlin. Not too congested like Prenzlauer Berg, a lot less funky/seedy than much of adjacent Kreuzberg - with lots of nice cafes, restaurants, supermarkets and a lovely on-a-pond dining spot where we enjoyed a nice breakfast while watching a family of swans go about their morning routines. If you gravitate toward the funky, walk ten minutes to Kotbusser Tor -- U-Bahn, bookstores, cafes, Turkish restaurants and groceries. Also close enough to a couple of other stations, and a nice walk to Alexanderplatz, Brandenburg Gate, etc. The loverly apartment: easy access via both lift and stairway; the best Berlin has to offer: high ceilings, light-filled, airy, quiet (facing the courtyard with a nice deck for breakfasts or any time of day. Super clean and really comfortable with nice bedding, well equipped kitchen and bath, and a large closet for suitcases and laying out/hanging clothes -- so you feel immediately at home. Contributing to "perfect" are the terrific hosts: Ben and Helga, who are not only friendly, welcoming and generous with their help and knowledge of the City, but also super-interesting people you'll be really glad to get to know (and probably over a glass of wine.) I normally stay with friends in Wannsee on my visits to Berlin - a city I know fairly well. This was my first time renting a place and also my husband's first visit to Berlin, so the quality of our shared experience mattered. I'm delighted to give Ben's place my highest recommendation.
