Bright and cosy
Great property in a really nice building, with an amazing location right in the centre of Berlin. Nice and clean and really cosy: it was freezing when we visited but we hardly needed to turn the heating on, it was so warm! The balcony is lovely and you can almost see Checkpoint Charlie from it, it's a fantastic location! Thanks for the warm welcome!
We arrived to Berlin, unfortunately we were unable to check in as the service forgot we are arriving. The apartment was dirty with disgusting used bedding from the previous guests, dirty kitchen and rubbish everywhere. It was all smelling with cigarettes and sweat. We left the apartment and stayed in a caffe waiting for the cleaner to arrive. She came about 5pm and started cleaning with an old hoover and with no mop. The apartment smelled cigarettes so badly even after cleaning we had to sleep with windows open in December. The owner didn’t want to refund us but she sent us in email after our stay, advertising her apartment in Rome.
Even, if it was clean and prepared for our arrival it is not the penthouse. Is is a small basic apartment with no way you can cook there as there is no clean pans or pots. Only one small pot that fits 3 eggs. It supposed to be a penthouse for 4 people!!! No wine glasses and not enough cutlery. It spoiled our stay in Berlin unfortunately.
I do hope my future Guests will be able to read this review as what it is.
This Guest forced the check-in person to check-in earlier, before the apartment was cleaned, saying that I had allowed them to go inside before check-in time. This is not true. I never allow Guests to go inside of the apartment before it is cleaned because it is not possible of course. The check-in person was in trouble with this Guest and made them check-in because he did not know how to answer to their hostility. Now they say the apartment was not clean, of course it was not clean because they wanted to check-in before the cleaning started.
We perfectly knew they were arriving of course so that it is not true that the check-in person did not know that. I also sent them email with maps, info and suggestions before their arrival.
About a penthouse, I really don't understand what they are talking about: the apartment is a penthouse with private terrace facing the Checkpoint Charlie so that I did not understand what they meant saying it is not a penthouse.
About a refund: yes, they wanted to SAVE money from their stay and this is the reason for this review.
It is a NO SMOKING APARTMENT and it is not allowed to smoke inside :)
I always accept reviews as suggestions to improve our service but this is not the case.
We only ask respect for the work of people.
Splendid stay in December 2019
Fab. Location fantastic. Apartment lovely. Would hope to
Revisit. Perhaps the lock to the door of this gorgeous apartment
Could be attended to. One evening it took 25 mins to
Open the door .
Very best wishes

Great Location, Sunny and Bright Apartment
My husband and I spent a month in this Mitte apartment. The location worked out great and we were able to walk to everything (sights, museums, parks). It is close to all sorts of services and restaurants, close to Gendarmenmarkt, close to Rausch Chocolate...
The apartment is on the 7th floor (with an elevator) with big windows for lots of natural light. The terrace overlooks the Checkpoint Charlie area. We had everything we needed to cook simple meals, great WiFi, comfortable bed, washing machine and big TV (although who has time to watch it).
The owner was quick to respond to our questions and the management company gave us lots of good tips about the neighborhood.
Thank you so much!
The apartment is small but is reasonable for two people.
The location is fairly good. Close to Checkpoint Charlie about one mile from the major museums on museum island.
We were disappointed in the furnishings because there was nowhere comfortable to sit. Just an uncomfortable futon to watch TV and hard plastic chairs for the table. Equipment for the kitchen is minimal. Zero welcoming instructions in anything but German. I had to call to get the TV to work and no instructions for other appliances.
Overall, I felt the owner doesn't care about his or her guests.
Hi, I am happy you appreciated our central location exactly on the Checkpoint Charlie and the penthouse with private terrace.
I am sorry you did not like the furniture that is in our images too, but please notice that chairs are not simple plastic chairs, they are design Kartell chairs, LaMarie by Philippe Starck so that really I am sorry you did not like them but I am sure that each Guest has his own taste and it is very good too. Fornthis reason images are important because Guests can choose better what they like.
About tv, I am happy that we answered to you immediately about your questions and it is a good suggestion to explain Guests how to turn on tv, we did not think in that but we will of course :)
My first interest is that my Guests enjoy their stay and I am happy to help, always and for all kind of questions :)
The penthouse is located on historic ground, in the most central district of Berlin, Mitte, just 100 m. from Checkpoint Charlie (the most famous crossing point between West Berlin and East Berlin, just on the Wall line), 20 m. from the famous Friedrichstrasse and a few minutes away, on foot, from the main sights of this wonderful city: the architecture of Potsdamer Platz with its buildings by Renzo Piano and the Sony Center, the historic Gendarmenmarkt with the twin churches, restaurants, the famous chocolate, the most fashionable bars, Friedrichstrasse, Museum island, the Reichstag, the Brandenburg Gate and much more.

When we opened our first apartment it was for the immediate love we felt for a city in full swing, Berlin, in a marvelous location in the center of the historic West Berlin. We were dazzled by each point of this city, by its diversity and we have continued appreciating its charm so much to open a second apartment in the center, a penthouse overlooking the Checkpoint Charlie. We did not stop, neither I nor my family, which I am privileged to have by my side in the construction of this project. A project that is not only about apartments, but also about targets and unstoppable passion. From Berlin we decided to expand our adventure in Italy, and where else but in the Eternal City, next to the Vatican City, surrounded by faith, by mystery and by the history of the Unforgetable Rome. Our apartments are our home, stylish and discreet, made up of people whose primary goal is the satisfaction of our guests. We hope to share with you our adventure.
Alessandra purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Alessandra chose Mitte
Checkpoint Charlie is one of our favorite places in Berlin, close to everything, the Brandenburg Gate, the magnificent Gendarmenmarkt..and much more. When we saw this penthouse for the first time we loved it immediately. The terrace is gorgeous and the view iss breathtaking!
What makes this Apartment unique
The terrace at the Checkpoint Charlie is definitely the highlight of the apartment, not to mention the internal characteristics of furniture, marble bathroom, the shower with rain effect. It 'a special place that many of our guests have chosen to celebrate their important moments. We hope to see you soon!
