Apartment in Berlin, Germany - Very Quiet In Spite Of Being In The Very City Centre (Theatre District)
The fully furnished Apartment is on 1. floor of a listed building in Berlin-Mitte. Bode-Museum on Museums Island, Oranienburger Strasse with the Synagogue and Hackescher Markt, Brandenburg Gate,"Unter den Linden“, Humboldt-University, Berlin Cathedral, Alexander Platz and Checkpoint Charlie are only 10 walking minutes away. The whole area is dotted with art galleries and theatres: that’s why we call our apartment "East End“! Two quiet double bedrooms situated in opposite corners of the large flat offer space for 4 PAX. A fit person could sleep on the sofa in the living room. The kitchen is fully equipped. The bathroom has a bath tub with shower, toilet and a washing machine. Towels and sheets are provided as is the Wi-Fi Broadband internet. Recommended for people with allergies. (We have easy-to-clean wooden floors and anti-allergic mattresses). No pets and no smoking allowed - but children are very welcome!
According to Berlin's new vacation rental law we include in the rental price 5% city tax.

About the Owner
We are writers (novels, movie scripts)
and very quiet people.
We love yoga and meditation.
We live in the Balearic since 1989 and love it here. We use our Berlin apartment whenever we get tired of the island life and need distraction and culture. At other times we rent it out to nice visitors who want to experience Berlin from the very city center but in a peaceful quiet environment - which our apartment provides.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Jerome from Brodeuax: Elfie and Pablo's apartment was beautiful and spacious, exactly as seen on the Ad. Very well situated to visit Berlin and stylish. Dagmar who received us was very kind and thoughtful. It's a really great place. I hope that I could spend more time in 2014 in East-End-Apartment.
Vidgis from Norway: This is a real find of an apartment! A real home away from home. Nice and spacious with high ceilings, lots of nice little touches and very clean and tidy. We could walk almost anywhere from the apartment (shopping, culture, dining), but if you want to go further a field, the apartment is also close to all sorts of public transport. The flat is in an inner courtyard so very quiet and with no neighbours looking directly into the apartment. Dagmar was extremely helpful and nice. We'll be back here next time we visit Berlin.
Michaela from Zurich: Nice Apartment, everything was fine!

excellent everything you could need to make your stay a time to remember
spacious and well located
My wife and I have rented dozens of apartments in European cities over the years. This one ranks toward the top. The first thing you notice is the HUGE size, really unusual for rental apartments. We were hanging out in the kitchen one night, and my wife said, "Oh, I don't feel like walking all the way to the living room to get the brochure". You get the picture. I love to cook, and the apt. offers a huge well appointed kitchen with gas cooking. There are high ceilings, so you get the distinct feeling you're in Old Europe. There are stairs to climb from the street, if that's an issue and there are no English TV channels.
Dagmar, your host, speaks very good English, and she goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable and well-taken care of. Kudos to her!
Location couldn't be better; all forms of public transportation are within a stone's throw, and the Berlin subway system is easy to figure out, even if you don't ride the NYC subways all the time as I do.
Very spacious, clean, and attractive
This apartment was very nice. Very spacious, hip interior, and with plenty of amenities. Full, usable kitchen and bathroom. Separate bedrooms with locking doors. A large living room area with a television and work desk.
Everything was clean and orderly.
Elfie's lovely central Berlin apartment
The apartment was extremely spacious more so than the pictures show. It has everything you would need to self cater. It was very clean and comfortable. You could not be more central 10 mins walk from main attractions and 5 mins from fredrichstrasse train station which was very handy for travel to and from airport.
Communication with the owner Elfie and Dagmar who met us at the property was excellent, they could not have been more helpful.
I would definitely recommend the apartment and would stay again if I ever decided to go back to Berlin.
Berlin was a really enjoyable experience with a mixture of history and shops and a fantastic zoo which we visited. One tip is that you need to book your visits online to go to the Reichstag dome which is free of charge and you should book weeks in advance of you trip.
Location is fantastic! Quiet neighborhood!
Apartment is just a block from Friedrichstrasse & bahnhof. Access to trains, etc. all over the city. Accommodations good for 2 or 4. We had just the 2 of us & only used one bedroom. Full kitchen but we did not cook. Really close to good restaurants.
From the Owner
“Berlin is our second home! That is why we have an Apartment here. The area is just perfect for us when we arrive from super tranquil Ibiza. In spite of being in the city's centre the apartment is very quite as it is located in the back yard of the building. All of the places and activities we like we can reach by bicycle, even visiting our friends in the old West. Mitte is the place if you enjoy shows, going to the theatre and visiting exhibitions and the like. The river Spree is just around the corner as are most of the important Museums of Berlin.”
Activity and Interests
Airport Tegel is 15 car minutes away, Airport Schönefeld about 30 minutes.

From the Owner
“The location made us buy this apartment - you cannot be more central in Berlin and have a view onto a leafy lush garden, away from traffic noise and pollution. Close to the river, everything in walking distance, great for cycling, no car needed, and if one does, a garage is around the corner. Vibrant and alive area once you step out of the house, cross the river and dive into the "Scheunenviertel" near the Synagogue…”
