If you are looking for a clinically untouched, anonymous holiday rental space without personal touch, my apartment is probably not right for you and I recommend to find an alternative accommodation.

// MY AIM IS TO GREET ALL OF MY GUESTS IN PERSON AND MEET THEM IN PERSON WHILE INVITING THEM FOR A WELCOME DRINK!
During the following check-in, I will hand over the keys to you, give a tour of the apartment, explain the various technical features, how things work and then leave my entire space for your personal use! I put together a detailed guide for guests/house manual that I will share with you per email after your booking has been confirmed. A printed copy will also be available to cover any questions that may arise during the stay.
// I WILL ALWAYS BE AVAILABLE OVER THE PHONE DURING YOUR STAY if you have any questions or require assistance during your stay. The NeighborhoodI absolutely adore the area I live in! It's super green, safe and quiet with the park and the small lake just across the street, you can walk to river Spree across the park.
At the same time, it is quite close to all the happening areas, Kreuzberg, Neukölln and Friedrichshain. If you do not want to walk there or take a taxi, feel free to use my bicycles to get around! Getting Around// CONVENIENTLY LOCATED TO ACCESS BERLIN'S HIGLY EFFICIENT PUBLIC TRANSPORT SYSTEM:
// S-BAHN STOP "TREPTOWER PARK" IS REACHED 12 MIN BY FOOT/LEISURELY STROLL THROUGH THE PARK OPPOSITE MY HOUSE -
// "TREPTOWER PARK" STATION IS A STOP ON THE RINGBAHN S41 & S42 i.e. the Circle Line around Berlin's city center. From there, you can easily reach Alexanderplatz in only 15 min with only one transfer of lines at stop "Ostkreuz". Or you go the other direction to go to West-Berlin incl. Kurfürstendamm, ZOB (Central bus station) or Berlin-Messe (Berlin's important trade fair area) in 25 minutes.
// CLOSEST BUS STOP ON PUSCHKINALLEE IS ONLY 6 MIN WALK -->>
// BUS LINES 165 & 265: EVERY 10MIN BUSES GO TO METRO/U-Bahn STATION “SCHLESISCHES TOR” ON LINE U1. From there, it’s only a short walk to EastSide Gallery, Görlitzer Park, beautiful Oberbaum Bridge, Kreuzberg SO36, Markthalle Neun (a market hall with fresh food and delicatessen) or walk across 'Warschauer Bridge' and enter 'Friedrichshain' neighborhood with plenty of bars, restaurants and clubs.
// ENOUGH FREE(!) PARKING SPACE DIRECTLY OUTSIDE OF MY HOUSE if you are coming with a car.
// CALLING TAXI TO PICK YOU UP FROM HOME IS EASY AND PRICES IN BERLIN ARE REASONABLE especially if you travel in a family and small groups, it’s definitely worth considering taking a taxi for convenience and speed. It may not be a lot more expensive than buying lots of single tickets for public transport. Other Things to NoteOne important note:
IF YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO DOG HAIR OR FIND DOGS "IMPURE" FOR RELIGIOUS REASONS, MY HOME MAY NOT BE RIGHT FOR YOUR:
WHEN IT IS NOT USED BY MY GUESTS, I AM CALLING THIS HOME FOR LUNA AND MYSELF, a German short haired pointer dog.
I do not share some people's belief that dogs are unhygienic in any way, at least not any more unhygienic than human being are...
Despite all efforts to thoroughly clean the flat as a preparation your check-in, if you look closely, you may be able to spot a few remaining dog hair. Hence the disclaimer here.
