The SpaceAltbaus in Berlin are a speciality (as most were damaged or destroyed during the world wars). This ground-floor apartment (no stairs to climb!) is in the building that dates back to 1910.
The apartment is located in Wilmersdorf (a premium west Berlin neighborhood) with easy access to public transportation through S-Bahn (41, 42, 46), U-bahn (U3) and multiple buses. The freeway A100 is at 2-minutes driving distance (exit of Meclenburgische Str / Detmolder Str). The area is full of local restaurants as well as grocery shops (Aldi and Netto are 2-minutes walk, Bio market is 10-minutes walk).
Famous Berlin attractions are easy to reach (Ku'damm, Potsdamer Platz, Tiergarten at 10-20 min public transport distance).
High ceilings, large doors and lots of light with classical passageway (Flür) that leads to all rooms characterize the apartment.
The apartment is thoroughly modernized with a large kitchen, new parquet flooring and a modern bathroom. The main bedroom has a huge king size bed, big wardrobe, two comfortable sofa seats and ample lighting. The small bedroom has a daybed, chests of drawers and table. The cute thing about small bedroom is the hochbett! There is a ladder to climb to this hochbett and it can comfortably sleep one adult or two kids. The living room is large and is fitted with great entertainment setup (46 inch 3-D LED TV, 3D BD player, Netbook, Webcam, Wireless Keyboard, Wireless Mouse and a Yamaha Soundbar). The huge Sofa can be unfolded to create a large sofabed that can comfortably sleep two adults.
This is a fully furnished apartment that can accommodate six adults (two in main bedroom, two in small bedroom and two in the living room) and two kids. Please note that there is only one bathroom, so it can be the bottleneck for a larger group. As we live here every now and then, typically the small bedroom will be available, but when we are not in Berlin, whole apartment is available (see the calendar for dates). This listing pertains to the whole apartment!
There is free phone (local), free internet (wired and wireless), free laundry (washer and dryer are in the bathroom) and free access to kitchen (all utensils, dishwasher, microwave+oven, food warmer, food processor and a large refrigerator). Cooking here can save you big money against eating out at the restaurants...
As this is our second home, we also expect that you treat it with love and respect. Cleaning up after yourselves is expected and helps us to keep the costs down of the rentals.
We hope that you have a memorable experience in this apartment and leave after becoming a real Berliner so you can tell your friends ... Ich bin ein Berliner(in)! :) Guest AccessYou have access to the whole property and all amenities except the Keller (you won't miss it!) Interaction with GuestsYou can always reach out to Anna or me anytime if we can help you. As Anna lives in Berlin, she is your best chance to get immediate help.
