About the property

Penthouse Apartment in Central Berlin, Germany - Overlooking Quiet Courtyard, 10 mins Walk from Museum Island, Alexanderplazt, Bustling Area

A 80msq 2 bedroom duplex penthouse overlooking a courtyard and located in the trendy area of Mitte. Upstairs, an open plan sunny sitting/dining area opens onto a south-facing terrace. There is one bedroom on this level with views of the TV tower and neighbouring garden, while downstairs there is another large studio-bedroom (with cable TV)and bathroom overlooking the hof (courtyard). A beamed ceiling and terracotta floors throughout, with contemporary furniture and a well-equipped, wooden fitted kitchen create a possibly Tyrolean-Spanish atmosphere. This is particularly so when the big glass sliding doors are open onto the balcony and one can breakfast al fresco. The apartment is very quiet, though the area is bustling with boutiques, bars, caf?s, restaurants and galleries. Alexander Platz, Prenzlauerberg and Museum Island are all within 10 minutes walking distance. The Goethe Institute and the Cervantes Institute are within 5 minutes. Perfect location for short term stays for families of up to 5 members, one or two couples, and two or three single individuals. Please do not request a booking if your group is made up of five single individuals.

Nice and in a good location

  • 4 of 5

Piers flat is very nice and even has a deck to sit out on. It is walking distance to most things in the city but is still on a quiet side street. It has the basics for cooking so if you go grocery shopping you can save some money. Everything in the flat was clean well taken care of.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

All the arrangements went well, Piers replied fast and all was as described. The location is super, the flat is quiet even it is in centre of city. The flat was clean, the beds and sheets are comfortable. We didn't managed to use the wifi, but Piers was doing what he could about it and beeing EU citizens we could use our own internet access now when the roaming costs has gone down. As in all, very good choose to stay in central Berlin.

Lovely place, central location, welcoming host

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property for my parents who were visiting me in Berlin for a week. They were made very welcome by Piers, who went out of his way to help them settle in. The flat is very comfortable - the star of the show is the balcony with its great view of Berlin's TV tower, excellent for relaxing on hot summer evenings.The location is great for tourists. All Berlin's main sites are within walking distance and there are plenty of cafes, bars, restaurants and shops outside the front door.

Excellent location

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 5 (three kids aged 14,11 & 9) really enjoyed our stay in this apartment. The location was fantastic. We walked everywhere as it was so central. There was plenty of space in the apartment. We were able to cook at home and there were also many good eateries near by. Piers was very easy to deal with and very helpful. Highly recommended.

Believe it or not, Berlin has several 'beaches' in summer time, one of which is just minutes away near Museum island.


Schonefeld Airport (Berlin). 40 mins away.


Potsdam is 40 mins away.

Further Details:

Mitte literally means 'middle' and the apartment is situated in the middle of a buzzing world of boutiques, art galleries, bars, cafes and restaurants. Hakenscher Hof is five minutes away, as is the Goethe Inst and the Cervantes centre. Museum Island, Alexanderplatz and the lovely Prinzlauerberg area are all within ten minutes walking. A short cycle ride will bring you down Unter den Linden to the Brandenberg Gate, the Reichstag and the Tiergarten.
