Of all the Berliner districts, Mitte definitely has the most tourist attractions. The list of sights and historical buildings and squares, is endless. The Brandenburg Gate, a landmark both before and after reunification , is the most famous monument in Berlin. From here the magnificent boulevard Unter den Linden runs almost all the way to Alexanderplatz with its Television Tower and World Time Clock. On the way you will be passing the Humboldt University, the oldest university in Berlin, Staatsopera (the Operahouse), Museumsinsel (the Museum Island) and the site of the future Stadtschloss (town castle).
The Museumsinsel (Museum Island) is a World Heritage site. It is a treasure-trove of famous museums. Friedrichstrasse is today a commercial shopping boulevard with flagship stores and grand shopping centres like Galerie Lafayette, Quartier Latin and various international couture boutiques. The street leads to Checkpoint Charlie, the main gateway for the Allied forces, non-Germans and diplomats before the wall came down - and then leads on further to Oranienburger Strasse.
This former Jewish quarter is a very popular district for going out and very famous for its nightlife and hip young crowd. Nearby you will find the Neue Synagoge and the Hackesche Höfe. Gendarmenmarkt, which is said to be one of the most beautiful squares in Europe, is not far away. Here you will find buildings like the Schauspielhaus as well as the German and French Cathedrals.
Berlin has got an extensive public transport network. Due to the flatâs central location, a lot of visitors leave their cars parked or don't even come to town by car at all. Many of the tourist attractions are easily accessible. The apartment is situated near the S-Bahn station Hackescher Markt and the U-Bahn station Weinmeisterstrasse in former East Berlin. Additionally, there is a taxi rank very near the flat. Nearby you will find sights like Alexanderplatz, the Brandenburg Gate and the famous boulevard Unter den Linden.

The owner is friendly, location is good, the place is nice but could be better maintained. The dishes were extremely limited (1 wine glass and 2 water glasses are not quite enough even for a couple), there was only 2 small bath towels...and a leaky fosset in the bathroom made it hard to keep the floor dry... If these things were fixed i would otherwise highly recommend the place!
Très bien accueillis à l'adresse par Martin...nous avons découvert un charmant petit appartement propre et fonctionnel dans un bâtiment entièrement rénové situé dans une rue très calme. Nous avons séjourné 8 jours à Berlin, proches de la station Hackescher Markt de la S-Bahn située sur une ligne principale (1 seul changement de ligne en venant de l'aéroport de Schönefeld) .Après des journées bien remplies nous retrouvions confortablement notre pied-à-terre berlinois ...

We spent 7 nights in the apartment. The location is superb (not in the center, but nice and quiet neighborhood). Gabi was so kind and gave us the keys, even when we got there a bit late. Supermarket, U and S stations and bus, literally 1 min walking. The apartment is spacious for 2 people, clean, and with all the amenities you can need, including extra towels and sheets. The kitchen is big enough to eat in there, and very clean. Bathroom small but enough to feel confortable. The only bad thing I would say about the apartment is that the mattress is old and not so confortable (but we survived). No problems with the wifi and hot water. I would repeat without doubt...but more happily if they change the mattress.....XD
The apartment is great, big, clean and very good situated. Check in/out was very easy.

The apartment is right on Nollendorfplatz, overlooking the uBahn station. It was clean, tidy and well laid out. The sofa-bed in the living room was lacking covers. The kitchen was very well equipped despite its small size. It was particularly nice to find that tea bags and milk had been provided. The kitchen window was badly cracked.
The bathroom/toilet is also small and somewhat cramped. It was clean and tidy. The bedroom was sparsely furnished but entirely adequate. The bed was comfortable.
The living room was a bit to warm at times: despite it being Summer and pretty warm the radiators were warm in the evenings so the windows and doors had to be opened to keep the room at a comfortable temperature. The bedroom was much cooler.
The location is great. The area is lively and relaxed at the same time. Maaßenstraße is lined with bars and restaurants. Winterfeldplatz has a regular market with good fresh produce. There is a good, well stocked supermarket right below the apartment. One can be in the heart of the tourist areas in minutes.
As the apartment is on a busy street expect some noise at night: it was not a problem at any point. Just sitting on the balcony looking over the city was a nice relaxing to spend some time.
I would certainly book this place again were it available.
Great location. Appartment was very well maintained. The possibility to take a hot bath after a long day of sightseeing is very nice. We enjoyed our stay in Berlin! Thank you!

So I would definitely recommend it as the area is also great !
Thanks for welcoming us there.
