This beautiful 75 square meter belle etage 1 bedroom apartment is ideal for one or two people and it can accommodate four as well. The apartment has typical features of the late 19th century, such as stucco, wing-doors and original wooden cassette doors. It has beautiful solid oak parquetry flooring throughout. The completely quite bedroom has been furnished with a king size bed, an art deco closet, and side bed shelves. The dining/living room has 3 meter E15 long dining table and sits 6 on its Charles and Ray Eames chairs. The two super comfortable Giancarlo Piretti chairs create a zen corner for an afternoon coffee.

I like to keep my apartment clean and am only looking for mature, responsible subletters. Please email with details of your stay and a brief description of yourself. Serious inquiries only please.

Thank you.

Why Sophia chose Kreuzberg

I like prewar high ceiling apartments and Berlin architecture. I enjoy sun bathing and strolling by the canal. I like the art and museum scene of Berlin.

Amazing Apartment; great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved Sophia's amazing apartment. It was a wonderful pied a terre while we were in such an invigorating, poignant, fascinating city. The location is great and the public transportation in Berlin is amazing so there's always a connection to get to and from the apartment.

Pleasant stay in Kreuzberg

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the apartment for 10 days. The apartment was very clean and quite spacious. The kitchen was fully appointed and a wash machine was available for clothing. The apartment is located very close to transit and food markets. Sophia and her representative were pleasant, punctual, helpful and easy to get in touch with. It worked out very well for us and I would recommend the apartment to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in Berlin.

Beautiful. Minimalist. Quiet. Romantic.

  • 5 of 5

My girl friend and I stayed in Sophia's lovely apartment for 10 days (only) during which we were able to combine a very busy schedule of sight seeing, catching up with family and friends (I am originally from Berlin, but live in the States now and the apartment was conveniently located directly between several friends and family members) and a quite vacation getaway to rest, relax, cook and be still.

I loved the location. I loved the brightness and openness and choice of Sophia's furnishing style, I loved the connection to everything important in Berlin - be it walking distance or easy to get to thanks to U1, U7 and M41 - I loved how clean, perfect and spotless everything was and most of all: I loved how much I was able to feel at home.

Superb in every way

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this apartment for a full month, May 2015, during which I was working each weekday in central Berlin, not far from the Museum Island. My assessment of the apartment is positive on all fronts. It is well situated: a couple of blocks from the Landwehr Canal with its leafy walks and grassy banks; not far from a pleasing warren of shops and restaurants that constitute the bohemian face of Kreuzberg; a few blocks from a daily market providing all one needs in the way of food and drink; a 45-minute walk through varying cityscapes to the historical centre of the city; several U-Bahn stations close by. And the apartment itself, which is in a 19th century building, has been very thoroughly renovated: all the equipment works, and the bedroom is perfectly quiet at night. Moreover, the space is pleasingly decorated, giving a sense of spacious, austere elegance. It was a real joy to return there every evening; I would very gladly repeat the experience.

Charm and personality!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is located in a great area of Berlin in a building with character! Many options for restaurants, transit, or just walking. The inside is very clean and tasteful. Highly recommend it to those seeking a quiet place to work, or just to absorb the city. The owner took great care to forward many interesting recommendations for nearby restaurants. Try NOR, the wine bar. I stayed a month, and would not hesitate to return. In fact, I probably will!

incredible atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

When you want to "really" see Berlin, I think it's important to stay in a home that reflects the culture. I actually felt sorry for people staying at fancy hotels. The location was perfect as mass transit was right outside. The apartment is modern and spotless yet you can still imagine the history. The ceilings are amazingly high; the bathroom is as luxurious as a fine hotel with a large towel warmer. Since most restaurants close on Sunday nights, we availed ourselves of the fine kitchen and cooked up a dinner of odds and ends we had bought at KaDeWe food hall. We'd love to come back again. Thank you Sophia.
