Not a full apartment but you have your own Kitchenette and a private bathroom with amazing shower. We do share the front door. I just finished reconstructing this high apartment from 1890 @ Graefe area. 2 Bikes free, Car avail. for trips @small fee.
YOUR SPACE: The spacious room is something between your own apt. and just a room, it's a studio-apartment in an apartment. You have your own Kitchenette in the room (no real cooking facilities, but you have a coffee machine, water kettle and toaster, so enough to make breakfast), a private bathroom with wonderful walk in shower in lime stone etc. BUT we do share the front door, the hallway and the toilet, shouldn't be a problem, I am quite friendly, clean and quiet. I just finished reconstructing this high ceiling apartment in an old building (1890) in the Graefekiez area and the location is great. The apartment is in the back of a safe, quiet and green courtyard on the ground floor. The picture with the 3d floor plan shows it best, the fuzzy area is where I live.
FACILITIES: The room has a double bed 140x200 with a big bunk on top (90x200). Then there are two single beds, one used as couch, or both depending on how many people you come with.
Of course I provide clean sheets and towels, there is no charge for that.
In the Bathroom you will find soap, shampoo, shower gel and shaving foam, free for your convenience.
The kitchenette has a sink with hot and cold water, there is a water kettle, toaster and coffee maker and of course cutlery, cork screw and plates, cups and glasses.
There is a fridge that will have ice when you arrive, the rest of the filling is up to you, a supermarket is 150 metres away.
I do not serve a Breakfast, BUT coffee and tea (big selection) is FREE and included.
I have 2 BIKES for guests that are usually available and you can use FOR FREE, but on a loose it pay it basis ;-) (value of the bikes is 90EUR) of course they have good locks, and in the 3 years I do AirBnB, no bike was ever stolen - let me know if you want them and I will make sure they're ready.
There is a desk in beautifully designed glass / table with enough sockets to plug in your chargers and laptops, you will have a cabinet available partially used for bedding and towels, partly empty for guest use.
There is an international outlet with 220v. plug to work with all international plugs.
There is washing machine and a drying rack if you need to use them, at no charge, for the first two loads, I will even provide free detergent and softener.
The curtain almost fully DARKens the room, so if light normally wakes you up, that shouldn't be a problem here! Sleep in after Berghain (or before like the locals)!
if you need more stuff, feel free to let me know and I will try to make arrangements.
If I am home you can sometimes use the large kitchen with much more appliances incl. an espresso machine. Also there's a dining table and a couch with a big smart tv etc. There is no guarantee you can access, but we can make arrangements within reason. The idea is however that your space is fully self sufficient.
I have quite a few board games and DVD's if you are bored on a rainy day.
CAR RENTAL : As I rent out the extra space here, I also rent out my car through a local Private Car Rental website (TaMyCa) when I don't use it... The site takes care of full risk insurance at 8 Eur a day and guarantees both renter and owner safety, discounts for guests available, ask me for a link!
Your SAFETY is very important, the room has a smoke detector and a fire extinguisher. A first aid kit is also provided (and I am a licensed first aid helper).
I always try to be friendly and love giving tips. I will do my best to make your stay comfortable, entertaining and easy going. Have a look at my reviews, you'll get the picture :-)
I speak Dutch, English, German, Spanish, French, and Czech fluently and get by in Italian, Polish and Slovak and speak some very basic Russian, Icelandic, Bulgarian and Thai.
I quit SMOKING recently, smoking is however allowed in the court yard, a few steps away and I promise I won't be pedantic about one little flair of smoke flying in :-), the room itself however should stay smoke free for the convenience of other guests.
KIDS: The place is not suitable for children 15 or under.
INTERNET: Of course we have High speed WiFi, but under German law there is strictly no downloading / torrenting etc. Even private individuals are sued. By making your booking you confirm and promise you will stick to the German laws about copyrights etc.
Berlin in General, but my house in particular is a non discrimination- / respect all individuals -zone ... I do not tolerate discrimination on the basis of race, gender, gender identity or anything else and I believe we are all individuals to be respected. Please extrapolate Morgan Freeman's quote: "I don't like the word homophobe, you're not scared, you're an asshole".
Please clean up after yourself, replace what you use from the kitchen and be considerate, the same of course can be expected of me and you can ask me anything, I'm usually happy to share.
There is no cleaning fee and I would rather keep it that way. This means all help keeping the place tidy is highly appreciated, thanks so much!
We love our neighbours, some of whom are older, we would appreciate if you could keep the noise down in the courtyard and the hallways of the building as well as after 22:00 ... rowdy parties until the early morning unfortunately won't work :-) we'll show you the bars we party at in stead :-)
I am pretty easy with sharing just about anything... But everything you use is provided under a "you break it you replace it" principle, the same goes for the keys, unfortunately 90 EUR a set, please don't loose them.
My place is not suitable for children 15 or under.
