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.

Reviews of this property
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!
Das Apartement ist super gelegen, sehr zental. Die Steinstraße ist eine Nebenstraße und das Apartement liegt im Hinterhaus, daher auch ziemlich ruhig. Es war alles sauber und gepflegt, ein paar kleine optische Mängel sind zu vernachlässigen. Die Ausstattung ist insges. gut, ein paar Müslischalen wären nicht schlecht. Insgesamt prima!
Un piso precioso,total limpieza,organizacion y todo en general TOTALMENTE RECOMENDADO Gracias
Wie auf den Fotos, einfache Einrichtung, aber völlig ausreichend.
Super Lage und unkompliziertes Ein- und Auschecken.
Netter und schneller Kontakt.
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 ...
Reviews for this host's other properties
Cozy place, good location.
At first I worried, as I saw a lot of negative comments about WIMDU and I had already paid. However, I was very positively surprised and quickly put at ease:
The responses from the website were prompt and professional. The apartment was clean and the interaction with Martin was excellent. Pick up of the keys was friendly and professional. The apartment had everything I needed and was in good order. Location is ideal; very central to public transport, cafe's, shops. The apartment quiet and around the corner there is action, if that is what you like.
One minor matter, which is why I give it 4 stars and not 5 (I think 4.5 stars is realistic): The blinds on one window (shower+ toilet) needs replacing. The rest of the apartment is in excellent shape. I can highly recommend Martin and the apartment.
The host cancelled the booking, this review is automated.
The apartment was in a great location, near food shopping, etc and near the transportation network - S - Bahn.
We had what we need for the week's stay. Shower head needs a small repair and we were not able to turn on TV--but maybe that was our problem.
Heike met us and was very helpful in assisting us with baggage when we arrived and when we left.
