Lovely space out of City Center

  • 3 of 5

The owner of the loft, Stephan, could not have been more helpful or accommodating. We arrived early on our flight from the US and he met us and let us leave our luggage as the prior guests had just vacated but the flat had not yet been cleaned. This flat is located in Moabit, a good 20-30 minutes via public transport (bus/metro) to the city center. The kitchen is very well equipped and the space is as shown in the photos. Beds are comfy, good WiFi and spacious - tho the floors do squeak quite a bit.

Our stay occurred during a very unexpectedly warm spell and there is no A/C in the flat, though there were fans for the rooms and the flat cooled down at night with the windows & cross breeze coming thru. There are four flights to climb to get to the flat with no elevator available - did not pose a problem for us, but those with physical limitations should not consider this.

The neighborhood is very quite and the flat is situated in a quite courtyard, so noise (other than morning birds ;-) is very minimal. Authentic and delicious local restaurants (especially a Turkish one) were available to us if we did not stay in the city center for the evening.

Transportation was spotty - one major bus line did not run for one day so we ended up walking quite a bit. Overall, we enjoyed our stay, but if you're looking for easily accessible hot spots or being in the center of action, this location

would not fit the bill. If you want an authentic Berlin neighborhood experience with quiet evenings and sunlit mornings, this would be perfect!!

I would highly recommend this accommodation!!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is exactly as it looks in the pictures - Very spacious and airy with lots of light and a well stocked kitchen. The beds were super comfy and David was more than accommodating and friendly! The stairs weren't really a problem - just added to our exercise!!

Amazing apartment in a lovely neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for 4 nights and loved it. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils and dishes. the decorating is very tasteful. Fortunately, it was not too hot when we were there, so just opening the windows on both sides gave a lovely cross flow breeze which cooled the apartment quickly. The bathroom has a washing machine, but there is no dryer, so wash in time to have your clothing hand dry. The only small negative is that the floor squeaks when walked on.

The neighborhood is charming and centrally located within a short walk from both U-Bahn and S-Bahn rail stations, giving quick access to all of Berlin. There are also some very good restaurants within blocks and a major grocery store just down the street. The owners have maps showing where the neighborhood amenities are in relation to the apartment. There is also a wall map of Berlin for help planning your expeditions.

We would definitely stay again next time we are in Berlin!

It is a 4 story walk up, so those with mobility issues should look elsewhere.

Aesthetically pleasing, comfortable and spacious

  • 5 of 5

We were overjoyed to be staying in this fabulous, historic apartment. Everything we could have wished for and more (at least 3 different ways of making coffee!). When holidaying in Berlin in the winter a primary concern is to keep warm. Despite all the luxurious space this apartment was really cosy and controls on each radiator meant we could be just as warm as we needed. The beds were big and comfortable and the huge velux windows were perfect for gazing at magical snow-covered trees. Stephan was most accommodating, in particular in his flexibility around arrival/departure times. We are an English family visiting with three adult daughters and the apartment accommodated us perfectly - a lovely big table to eat at and a vast bathroom. We particularly liked the vintage/modern style and the fish painting. The big map of Berlin and information about the locale were useful too.

We used the trains to travel around Berlin and enjoyed the walk to and fro the station, particularly in the snow!

We would all recommend this apartment - we would give it 10 stars if we could!

Wonderful renovated loft

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of spending a week in Stephan's beautifully and professionally decorated loft. The apartment exceeded all our expectations. Stephan and his mother were most hospitable, bilingual folks who were kind and flexible to meet our needs. We would very much look forward to revisiting in the future. The pictures do not do justice to this wonderful facility that we would recommend with no reservations.
