The flat's owners Anne-Marie et Frédéric :
"As artists, we are interested in places and people that stimulate our creativity.
We are pleased to share our passion for Berlin with you.
Become our guests in our self-made work-in-progress flat in the day after day more popular and trendy area of Neukolln."

The location:
The apartment is just one block away from the former airport Tempelhof, now an enormous park with beergarden, barbecue area and lots of activity, which is becoming very popular among the Berliners. This is only one of the many attractions this flat offers. Another is surely the extreme good connection to all kinds of traffic.
The Airport Schönefeld, the new international airport in Berlin, is only 20min by Taxi. The next Highway Exit, Britzer Damm, is only 6 minutes by car. The next Subway is 5 minutes by foot. There you can get directly to Kreuzberg, Alexanderplatz, Mitte, Prenzlauer Berg and and and...

The building:
Before 2009 the "LIRA 32" has been famous as THE place-to-be for parties and experimental projects. The front building was well-known as the “Flamingo Beach Lotel”, a project created by the artist Miss Marylou: every flat was decorated from floor to ceiling in barocco-kitsch style by several artists. The purpose was to offer an unforgettable arty experience for low-budget travellers. In memory of its glorious past, don’t forget to greet the couple of pink flamingos on your right side, in the main entrance hall!
In the first courtyard, take your time to admire the nice wall paintings called “Heissball” and " La vie en Rose" before climbing the stairs up to our flat in the third floor.

The flat:
Our project was to made our flat as comfortable as possible without losing this “L32 spirit”: We kept the original wooden floor, made the bathroom bigger and the kitchen smaller before hanging our paintings, drawings and collages on the walls - everything in order to transform the flat in a living but peaceful gallery.

Our purpose is to give you the possibility of chilling out after a walking day in museums or a dancing night in clubs in this handmade, comfortable and sunny flat.
The brand-new bathroom with its italian-style shower is hidden in the yellow cube in the center of the flat.
We have designed a bank in the corner of the kitchen so you can sip a warm coffee (in winter) or a Iced coffee (in summer).
If you want to spend a day in our "Schiller-Kiez" with checking your emails, you have the choice between these three cafes which could quickly become your second living-rooms:
We recommend you the
- "Pappel Reihe" (Kienitzer Strasse 109) for a soup or a Panini at Midday,
- "Frollein Langner" (Weisestrasse 34) for a tea and a cookie in the afternoon,
- "Engels" (Herrfurthstrasse 21) for a concert with pastas,
- last but not least "Sowieso" (Weisestrasse 24) for a concert with a beer.

Enjoy your trip in Berlin!
All the best
Frédéric & Anne-Marie

Prima. Kiez life, da ist Leben und ums Eck das Tempelhofer Feld, da kann man sich von der Hektik erholen! U-Bahn ist auch in der Nähe.
Wohnung liegt im Hinterhof und ist ruhig, v.a. nachts.
Unkomplizierte Vermieter.
Gerne wieder.

Wir hatten ein schönes Wochenende in Berlin. Für unsere Unternehmungen war die kleine Wohnung ein guter Start. Eine gemütliche Küche, abgetrennt vom Wohn-Schlafraum. Ein schönes Bad mit einer guten Dusche, viel Wasser und schön heiss. Sehr angenehm in der kalten Kahreszeit. Unser Bett hatte eine gute Matratze und wir einen guten Schlaf. Außerdem ist das Haus sehr ruhig und man kann von der U-Bahn-Station Leinestraße alles in Berlin gut erreichen. Im Sommer ist die Ferienwohnung bestimmt ein sehr guter Standort, da man von dort den geschichtsträchtigen stillgelegten Flughafen Tempelhof in ein paar Minuten erreichen kann. Er ist einen Besuch wert...Wir wünschen den Vermietern weiterhin nette Gäste und Grüßen sie hiermit.

Hat man erstmal die Eingangssituation überwunden, die einen als Nicht-Berliner ein wenig schockt, wartet eine gemütliche Wohnung mit rustikalem Künstlercharme auf den Berlin-Besucher. Schönes, neu renoviertes Badezimmer, gemütliches Bett. Zuverlässige, nette Gastgeber.

Ich habe mich in dieser kleinen Wohnung sehr wohl gefühlt. Sie liegt oben im 3.Stock und ist ruhig zum Innenhof gelegen. Zum Schlafen perfekt, das grosse Bett ist bequem. Am Vormittag ist die Wohnung sonnendurchflutet. Küche und Dusche sind klein aber fein. Die U8 Leinestrasse ist nach einigen Gehminuten zu erreichen. Uschi und Rainer sind symphatische und unkomplizierte Gastgeber, welche auch im Haus wohnen. Schlüsselübergabe hat tiptop geklappt.

Wir waren für 5 Tage in der wunderschönen, kleinen Wohnung im Erdgeschoss. Die Wohnung ist neu renoviert, hell und sauber. Alles was man braucht ist vorhanden. Uschi und Rainer haben uns sehr herzlich empfangen und bestens über die nähere Umgebung informiert. Es war sehr ruhig, wir haben uns wohl gefühlt. Wir freuen uns auf ein nächstes Mal, dann trinken wir zusammen den Sekt :-) Herzliche Grüsse und vielen Dank!

Awesome tiny flat, everything is absolutely well thought, I felt home so much, no doubt I will come back there again very soon. The stay was so nice, the building and area are very peaceful and at night (when you decide to sleep a little bit) you can really rest better than than ever! The building and flat are full of brilliant and colorful pieces of art, Uschi and Rainer are friendly hosts and Berlin, wow... gorgeous always obviously :)
