Light and peaceful double room in a classic “Altbau” building in the heart of Prenzlauer Berg. Big old flat with wooden floorboards, huge kitchen and bathroom, lovely view, lots of books and character. Fantastic location, walking distance to Kastanienallee, Arkonaplatz Flea Market, Mauerpark, Berlin Wall Memorial, Mitte gallery district, Kulturbrauerei, ICI, and many great bars, cafés, markets, shops, and restaurants.
Bright, light, peaceful room in a classic Berlin building. Furnished with a mix of contemporary and older pieces, it has a double bed, writing desk, comfortable chairs, hanging rail, and a clothes and storage cupboard, hand-painted back in 1903. Vintage bedside lamps, nice big pillows, cosy duvet, and an embroidered bedspread from Kyrgyzstan.
The room is set off of an office space, apart from the rest of the apartment for plenty of privacy. It looks out onto the street: a super quiet, leafy, and much loved Prenzlauer Berg avenue, known for its summer "Straßenfest" and the bunting flags that stay strung up all year.
The apartment is an original “Altbau” building. Please don't expect slick renovation or luxury polish. It is rather cosy, characterful, comfy, with a few creaky floorboards.
Big, well-equipped kitchen & expansive bathroom with shower, tub, and washing machine. You're also welcome to relax in our living room, which is lovely and light and peaceful, and packed floor to ceiling with books.
We hope you'll love Berlin as much as we do and are happy to help with tips, advice, and recommendations.
Simply treat the flat, neighbourhood, and our neighbours with kindness, cleanliness, and respect!
I'm a writer, researcher, and editor, particularly for cultural books, journals, and films as well as activist groups. I grew up in the U.K. and lived in Paris and Rome before moving to Berlin. I speak English, French, German, and Italian. I share the apartment with my partner Christian, who works for a cultural foundation.
