Overview

About the property

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!

A 5% city tax applies and will be collected cash on arrival by our caretaker. If you are a business traveler you are tax exempt if you provide a form to prove the business trip.

About Paul & Elfie

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.

Paul & Elfie purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Paul & Elfie chose Berlin

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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…

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.

January 2014



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!

Large and spacious apartment close to all the attractions

  • 4 of 5

Terrific spacious and modern apartment right in the heart of Mitte and close to all major attractions. Beautiful big windows and lots of light in a very peaceful area. We loved staying here. Unfortunately, there was some construction work going on next door which started around 7:30 and was quite noisy. However, this did not detract from our stay. A couple of suggestions. A clothes dryer would be a welcome addition as we found it difficult to dry our clothes. Also, the cleaner washed the towels used by previous guests but then left them on the small clothes line and asked us to put them away when they were dry. We felt they should have been taken away to dry as it meant we were not able to wash and hang our own clothes. But apart from these suggestions for improvement, it was a fantastic stay and the apartment truly is very large and comfortable.

Perfect Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment couldn't have been better located. It was cool decor without being pretentious.....very comfortable to relax in after a long day walking about Berlin. Had everything we need for cooking and for washing clothes. Owners were really helpful and Dagmar the housekeeper, gave us a lovely welcome. Very close to transport links and organic supermarkets nearby. Also just beside the river so lovely walks in the evening. Will definitely recommend this flat and would come back 😀 The Docherty Family

Lots of space and great location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed this stay. Half a block to the S bahn, 2 blocks fron the museums, and easy walk to Brandenberg gate and trendy Friedrichstrasse. The apt is up some stairs but very quiet. New appliances and excellent TV and Internet . Reception with Dagmar was timely and very pleasant and we never had any problems in our four day stay. The rooms are huge with tall ceilings. Groceries are just around the corner.

Wonderful location with everything we needed in Berlin!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights at Christmas and it was perfect, from getting in the apartment by meeting Dagmar to sleeping. The kitchen is quite well-appointed if you want to cook and the bathroom was good. The shower had excellent water pressure (a big point for us). The wi-fi worked well also. Even though the weather was cold, we were never cold in the apartment even when we turned the radiators in the bedroom way down. Dagmar gave us great advice on a place for my husband's birthday dinner - Entrecote. This apartment is within easy walking distance of Potsdam Place, Brandenburg Gate, Gendarmenmarkt, and Museum Insel. There are several supermarkets close by to pick up fresh rolls, yoghurt, wine, beer, etc.

We would definitely stay here again.
