Mehringplatz III, 2 bedroom apartment, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4 people

Very nice apartment. Excellent location, with great access to much of Berlin. The U-Bahn station could not be more convenient. The apartment is comfortably and tastefully furnished and the beds are quite comfortable.
The kitchen was adequately equipped, although a cutting board and a dish drying rack were notably missing.
Almost all of the apartments that we searched in Berlin offer only king size beds. This is great if two couples are renting, but it is a problem for families with older kids of the opposite sex. My teenage son and daughter were not comfortable sleeping in the same bed together, so my son slept on the (comfortable) sofa. It would be nice if one of the rooms had beds that could be separated.
These are minor complaints. Overall, we were quite pleased with this apartment and would highly recommend it to others.

Fabulous location, right in the heart of things & so multicultural. Beautiful restaurants and bars with delicious food & great beer. Would definitely recommend it and would love to visit again.

Very central place to visit Berlin for a week. The appartement is really wath you see on the pictures. Clean and comfortable, we really enjoy the fact that we could have breakfast in the morning and make a little snack for the lunch. A few minutes from the U bahn or the train.

The flat is in a good location. We used to live in Berlin and had an apartment nearby, so knew the area. But it is very noisy, particularly in the front bedroom. Plus, the cleaning of the apartment wasn't great - it was very dusty to the point where it seemed it hadn't been properly cleaned, e.g. under the beds, for some time. Also, it was quite sparsely equipped for the price, particularly in the kitchen. We've stayed in a lot of apartment rentals and many show more thought and attention to detail than this one. Saying which, it is a big flat with two big bedrooms, a nice balcony, and the area is a good and central one from which to explore. Plus there are good transport links nearby with two U-bahn lines and lots of buses. There are good bars, restaurants not far away on Mehringdamm and Bergmannstrasse. A mixed bag, all in all.

The location was handy and close to main attractions. The apartment could use a really good clean, as sweeping the floor is not enough, and I swear there were more dust bunnies under the bed than floor ( I was looking or my sons dummy). It woul be good if there were sheets provided as it was hot and difficult to sleep with just a duvet. There was no ironing equipment, or coffee machine as listed, and had to request twice for the ironing equipment to be provided. There as advised, here was no laundry service anywhere near the apartment which was annoying as we have two small children, which brings me to perhaps the most important part, the locks on the balcony door are terrible and unsafe. The windows are not lockable, therefor, very easy for a little one to get a chair and climb up to open them, and as there is no safety rails or locks, was terrified of letting them out of my sight. It would also be handy o leave a fan on site, as it was hot, and I was also quite alarmed when the owner came by to drop off the iron that he went through the apartment and closed the windows that we had left open to cool the place down. I also think that someone else had been inside during our stay as the door was locked differently to how e had left it. I would not recommend this apartment s family friendly, but perhaps move it to a group listing.

Spacious apartment in an excellent location close to a train station. There is a nearby supermarket for supplies. A minor glitch is that the bedroom curtains don't close - so there is a gap, the light woke us early.
