FA10It was a great experience staying at the apartment. Only negative was the lift was not working and apartment was on 2nd floor so we had difficulty in taking up our luggage. Lift maintenance is very urgent as it was non-operational for both the days we stayed even after the technician came twice to repair. Rest everything was excellent including the furniture, location, brightness in apartment, cleanliness, hygiene, etc. I would rate it at 9 out of 10.
HEARTOFMITTEOn this trip to Berlin I traveled with my daughter and her friend. I was working and they were sightseeing so the apartment was conveniently located for all our purposes. We didn't know the area at all but there were handy shops and a U Bahn station at the end of the road. I did hire a car and although I had to pay to park on the street outside the flat it was very cheap (in comparison with where I live!) and as we were out most of the day it was not a problem. You don't have to pay from 10pm to 9am and I always found a space so it was fine. The apartment itself was completely clean and very well equipped. We had everything we needed and everything worked. The wifi was great, which was really important for me. The neighbours and neighbourhood was quiet and pleasant. The only thing i really missed was an oven and particularly a freezer - it was hot weather and being able to store ice/lollies would have been lovely. All communications with the manager of the apartment were very easy and my deposit was returned to me in full after our stay. Overall I can definitely recommend the apartment and the service provided :-)
BERLIN DELUXEThe apartment was spacious and clean and perfect for us. The U Bahn and S Bhan were just round the corner so access to the city was very easy and we felt safe returning home late at night. There is an Aldi nearby for all your provisions and a 24 hr garage for emergency supplies. We were all really pleased with it.
PRETTY+CENTRALNice and clean appartment in a quiet block and in a very good part of the area (shops, bars, restaurants).
ALEXA 2Well presented apartment in a great part of the city for walking, cycling and public transport links.
AM BRANDENB TORA great apartment in a brilliant location. Many attractions are easy to reach on foot, and the train station is just outside. There is a row of great restaurants just around the corner and a convenient supermarket downstairs. The bedrooms are spacious; the sitting room is comfortable and the dining area is very useful. The apartment is very clean and well-equipped. Boris, the owner, and his friend who met us, were very welcoming and incredibly helpful. Highly recommended.

Berlin is a city that’s shaped by its history and that’s why most of its most important spots are related to it. The main example is theBerlin Wall, from which there is still approximately a mile left of it called the East Side Gallery. Other points of interest are Checkpoint Charlie and its Wall Museum and the Reichstag, the parliament building that can be visited along its glass dome, from which you can enjoy an amazing view of the city. Another of the city’s emblematic points is the Brandenburg Gate, an old 18th-century entrance gate to the city that leads to the famous Unter den Linden avenue. The German capital is also a city of museums and many of them are on its Museum Island, an island in the middle of the river Spree with amazing museums such as the Altes Museum (with ancient art), Alte Nationalgalerie (19th-century German art) or the Bode Museum (with Byzantine art). The new Neues Museum contains mostly Egyptian art.
Berlin also has an alternative cultural scene. The German capital is probably the best European city for nightlife and it’s famous for its lively atmosphere and fantastic clubs. The districts of Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain are the most alternative ones in the city, with young people and street art everywhere you go. Mitte is the city centre and where all the activity concentrates, also the location of the famous Alexanderplatz, whilst Prenzlauer Berg is the most artistic district, a quiet place where you can find beautiful cheap apartments in Berlin.
The best time to visit Berlin
Any time of the year is a good one to visit Berlin, although during the winter months, the cold takes over the city and the snow gives it an even more mystical and melancholic feeling. During summer, the sun comes out and it’s perfect to enjoy your holidays in Berlin in the open air and in its parks.
Transport in Berlin
To get to Berlin you can fly to Tegel Airport or to Schönefeld Airport, although the latter will close in late 2013 to give way to the ultra-modern Brandenburg Airport. To get around the city, its and urban train (S-Bahn) are great to get from A to B quickly and cheaply.
Festivals in Berlin
The Carnival of Cultures takes place during the month of June, as does the Love Parade, one of the most important electronic music events in Europe. Meanwhile in winter, the city has many Christmas markets that are one of its main attractions
