“Quirky and spacious and cosy, oh my”
Reviewed 1 February 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We stayed in the Skyloft the end of January as a group of friends wanting to check out the fantastic city of Berlin for the first time. I had trawled through the hundreds of apartments available and picked this one for its location and excellent price, the photos looked super cute and it seemed well-equipped. Well, on arrival, the Skyloft was everything we expected and more! It is really a beautiful apartment, with quirky use of colour and lighting on bare brick work and wooden beams. One of our favourite parts of the decor were the little paintings that could be found all over the place, I won't spoil the surprises for any potential renters but if you find yourself unable to sleep you'll find yourself able to drift off by counting 'sheep' :)
The kitchen is amazingly well-equipped, with good-quality pots and pans, a four ring glass hob and a fan oven. You won't find any bashed saucepans or burnt frying pans here. As we went over Burn's Night we had brought haggis with us (typical Scottish folk, eh) and were able to cook a full haggis, neeps and tatties dinner with ease.There is a coffee filter machine (which got us out of bed every morning after evenings availing of the 24-hour bars there!) and also a Nespresso machine, Stephan has supplied a variety of pods at 50c each which we were more than happy to splash out on. The three bedrooms are huge, there is also a cute little balcony for any smokers or folk who like to drink their breakfast coffee nosying through other people's windows like me.
The whole apartment was spotless, the bathroom is particular was lovely and there were two fluffy towels for each guest, with tons of powerpoints available all over the flat for girls using hairdryers/hair straighteners/curling tongs/phone chargers.
In terms of location it was pretty good, it was a little bit of a trek to Haupbahnhof , about a 20-25min walk, however there was snow on the ground when we were there so we probably walked at a slower pace than we would have in good weather. There is a u-bahn station (Birkenstrasse) about 5mins from the apartment for anyone who doesn't fancy the dander, we didn't mind it as we were happy to get our bearings and check out the shops as we walked. We got taxis in the evenings just for convenience sake, we paid about 15euros per taxi to get right into the thick of things in the city so when there were 3-4 people per taxi it really didn't break the bank.
I would DEFINITELY recommend this apartment to family groups or groups of friends, the only slight minus I would say is that it is up 5 flights of stairs which after 8 hours or walking round the city seems like hell :) but thankfully the apartment was always warm and cosy for us coming back so we didn't mind. So if you are reasonably fit and fancy coming home with buns of steel then it shouldn't be an issue.
Thank you Stephan for a lovely stay. If I could live there I would!!

Liked best: The secret little paintings everywhere!
Liked least: The 5 flights of stairs... but they came in handy for burning off all the bratwurst
