The building is in a good location for sightseeing, just a few minutes away from Checkpoint Charlie, transportation and shopping. Just turn right when you leave the buulding and you are three minutes away from public transportation and a wide variety of restaurants and shops in the Checkpoint Charlie area and nicer shops a block or so beyond. A left turn takes you to a lesser area after a block. I’d avoid that area, but it does have a small market.
We stayed in an apartment other than the one pictured, a two-bedroom unit. It was elegant, clean, comfortable and quiet, but missing a few amenities, such as a fan, coffee and soap. Perhaps we were to bring our own? Nice televisions and comfortable living room furniture and a cozy balcony overlooking the courtyard.
Be prepared to walk four flights of stairs with your luggage. Even without air conditioning, the solid construction of the apartment kept it coolish, but a fan would be helpful at night to avoid keeping the windows open.
The historical aspect of the building appealed to us as it was the only building on the block not destroyed in the war. Having a phone in the apartment pre-formatted to call a taxi was very convenient. The manager was very helpful and we felt safe during our stay, thanks in large part to the very heavy iron door leading to the serene inner courtyard.
Overall, a modern, clean and comfortable place to hang your hat in Berlin.
This apartment was a great base for exploring Berlin. It is beautiful, spacious,and the building has wonderful character. We had every amenity we needed, and extra touches like a well-appointed kitchen. The owner met us with wine & flowers and we had a lovely conversation about Berlin (I hadn’t been there in 35 years). We would definitely stay here again, and look forward to it!
An excellent place. Our host met us on arrival and was very helpful. Walking distance to most sights. Comfortable beds. Well equipped kitchen. Highly rated
This apartment was ideally placed for visiting attractions and close to underground trains. There were also many restaurants and coffee shops nearby to sustain us. The apartment was stunning and very comfortable.There were 5 of us in our group and we felt very safe and there was plenty of room for us. The owners told us about the history of the building. The owners Marion and Nino were very friendly and helpful. I would certainly recommend this as a place to stay in Berlin and would love to return for another visit and to see more of the museums and places of interest.There is so much to take in.
Information was excellent so no problems finding the apartment and gaining entry. Central location ideal for visiting the major sites in the city. Didn't use public transport, walked everywhere. Plenty of options for eating locally.
Only negative point was that the bedrooms were a bit noisy from the road outside.
