About listing

A 80msq 2 bedroom duplex penthouse overlooking a courtyard and located in the trendy area of Mitte. Upstairs, an open plan sunny sitting/dining area opens onto a south-facing terrace. There is one bedroom on this level with views of the TV tower and neighbouring garden, while downstairs there is another large studio-bedroom (with cable TV)and bathroom overlooking the hof (courtyard). A beamed ceiling and terracotta floors throughout, with contemporary furniture and a well-equipped, wooden fitted kitchen create a possibly Tyrolean-Spanish atmosphere. This is particularly so when the big glass sliding doors are open onto the balcony and one can breakfast al fresco. The apartment is very quiet, though the area is bustling with boutiques, bars, caf?s, restaurants and galleries. Alexander Platz, Prenzlauerberg and Museum Island are all within 10 minutes walking distance. The Goethe Institute and the Cervantes Institute are within 5 minutes. Perfect location for short term stays for families of up to 5 members, one or two couples, and two or three single individuals. Please do not request a booking if your group is made up of five single individuals.

    The apartment was just as described! Piers and his team are great - very helpful. Apartment location is great, within walking distance to most everything. Very Spacious. Definately recommend. Kelly - Dallas, Texas 21 May 2017 - 20:06:00

    We were 4 friends and rented this flat for a long week-end. It is very well located, close to Alexanderplatz and with a metro access at 5 minutes, and close to very lively streets with a lot of restaurants and shops. The place is very clean and well furnished, and very quiet. There is a nice view on the Fernsehsturm from the small terrace. The persons who welcomed us were very nice and flexible in terms of timing for check in and check out. I recommend this place for a stay in Berlin. 26 May 2017 - 05:41:00

    I booked this property for my parents who were visiting me in Berlin for a week. They were made very welcome by Piers, who went out of his way to help them settle in. The flat is very comfortable - the star of the show is the balcony with its great view of Berlin's TV tower, excellent for relaxing on hot summer evenings.The location is great for tourists. All Berlin's main sites are within walking distance and there are plenty of cafes, bars, restaurants and shops outside the front door. 26 June 2017 - 10:42:00

    All the arrangements went well, Piers replied fast and all was as described. The location is super, the flat is quiet even it is in centre of city. The flat was clean, the beds and sheets are comfortable. We didn't managed to use the wifi, but Piers was doing what he could about it and beeing EU citizens we could use our own internet access now when the roaming costs has gone down. As in all, very good choose to stay in central Berlin. 01 July 2017 - 17:49:00

    On the day of arrival we couldn't reach Piers by phone. When we called the office number on the posting, they were not expecting us. They managed to send someone "in emergency" to give us the key. We waited on the street for the person to finally arrive around 5pm. The appartment was not ready and the person needed another hour and a half to clean it. We could finally rest and take a shower at 6h30 pm. It is definitely not the best way to start a relaxing weekend. On the day of departure we had again to waste our time waiting for the person to show up. Appointment was at 14h45 but 30 minutes later nobody showed up. We had to leave in order to catch our flight. Our friend came back and left the keys later with the caretaker. I wasn't expecting to waste so much time on arrival AND departure to handle the keys. 18 August 2017 - 12:01:00

    DEBIAN HABERNOS ADVERTIDO QUE NO TENIA ASCENSOR, Y ES UN TERCER PISO, PARA NOSOTROS HA SUPUESTO UN GRAN INCONVENIENTE, PUES DESPUES DE LLEGAR CANSADOS HABIA QUE SUBIR. ESTO DEBERIAN HABERLO DICHO EN LA RESERVA. 09 September 2017 - 16:45:00

    5 of us stayed - one to run the marathon and the rest to cheer. Perfect position close to the course and also to great food shops, clothes shops and wine and beer bars. Near a transport hub so easy to travel round too. The apartment is well appointed although there is no oven, just a microwave and there is endless hot water and a good shower. We would stay here again - thank you! 27 September 2017 - 06:00:00

    Piers flat is very nice and even has a deck to sit out on. It is walking distance to most things in the city but is still on a quiet side street. It has the basics for cooking so if you go grocery shopping you can save some money. Everything in the flat was clean well taken care of. 15 July 2017 - 15:35:00

    We loved the location of the flat. It is near lots of lovely bars, restaurants and shops but is very quiet. The flat is spacious and clean and had everything we needed. We are two adults and three teenagers and there was plenty of space for us. It was easy to get to from the airport, in fact we got a train to Alexander Platz and walked to the apartment using our phone for directions. There is plenty of public transport nearby and we used it to get around. The owner Piers was available when we couldn't get the wifi working and it was all fine. Berlin is such an interesting city, so much to see and learn. I would really recommend a visit and I would recommend the apartment. One thing that is obvious if you read the info- there are a lot of stairs to climb so don't bother if you have mobility issues or young kids to carry. 25 August 2017 - 15:34:00

    The property is centrally located in Berlin, not far from the Hackescher Markt train station and only two stops from the main train station. It is a 15 minute walk. Lots of restaurants in the area and the Walking tours also start from the Hackescher Markt. We arrived at 4:00 pm and found there was no one to let us in. We spent one hour sitting on the steps before a young woman arrived with the keys. Fortunately it was warm, but we were unfamiliar with the area and had heavy luggage so we sat and waited. One should be very aware that the apartment is on the top floor and there is no elevator. Therefore, you will need to walk up and down 48 steps. Would not recommend to those who cannot climb. We found that we were unable to connect to the Internet. The Router had wires hanging out of the wall and was obviously broken. We called repeatedly to have it fixed. However this being a weekend it was impossible. We finally went to a coffee shop two blocks away. I know that part of the charm of being in a new city is exploring. However, in the age of Internet we were unable to find which restaurants were open or easily plan tours. We did learn a lesson though: In the apartments in PRague and Innsbruck, we made sure that the owners assistant showed us how to log on before we left. 07 October 2017 - 07:17:00

    This is a fantastic apartment on a very quiet street but really close to shops/cafes/restaurants and great transport links. The booking and arrival/departure process was easy and well managed. I would definitely recommend this apartment! 11 April 2014 - 09:14:14

    We had the most amazing stay. Berlin is an absolutely wonderful place and the flat was simply lovely. Our daughters absolutely loved the flat and we enjoyed it as a great place to relax after a hectic day sightseeing around Berlin. We couldn't get over how quiet it was in the evenings. Perfect base for exploring some truly fantastic areas of Berlin. 14 September 2014 - 21:45:00

    This is a gem of an apartment! Right in the middle of where you want to be if you want to get an all round impression of Berlin. You will have difficulty choosing which restaurant to go to first, which way to turn to see the sights and which shops to spend your money in. You really are in the middle of the most beautiful area. The apartment is ideal with two bedrooms and space to sleep 5 or even 6. We can't wait to go back. 27 October 2014 - 11:44:51

    My husband and I and another couple were supposed to stay at this apartment for 3 nights in September. However, when we arrived at the apartment, no one answered the buzzer as promised to let us in. Each side is blaming the other for what happened. The bottom line is that we did not end up staying in the apartment. Piers told me that his caretaker would be waiting for us at the apartment when we arrived. I was to instructed to ring the buzzer, and the caretaker would let us in. Unfortunately, although we rang the buzzer many times during the almost 2 hours that we stood outside, the caretaker did not let us in to the apartment. Piers cannot deny that his caretaker failed to answer the buzzer when we arrived. We have the names and phone number of neighbors who saw us standing outside the building ringing the buzzer at the appropriate time. Although I have asked Piers for an explanation as to why the caretaker did not answer the buzzer, he has failed to provide one. Piers can blame me as much as he wants for what happened after that (and it is likely that he will blame me when he responds to this review), but the entire problem began when his caretaker failed to answer the door as promised. Regardless of what Piers says, that was not my fault. I am not responsible for starting the breakdown in the process. I am not writing this review to bash Piers even though I am extremely unhappy and disappointed with the way things turned out, both during my stressful time in Berlin and afterwards. Piers is entitled to his opinion about why things happened the way they did, and his opinion is clearly different from mine. I am writing this review so that the same thing does not happen to other travelers. Apparently Piers has not had many problems with the check-in process in the past, but if it happened to me, it can happen to you. If you rent this apartment and are from the United States like I am, make sure that you have a phone that can make calls to European phone numbers. Although we did have the ability to make international calls, I know that not every traveler can do that. Also, please make sure that you get specific instructions from Piers on who to call if no one answers the door when you arrive. Don't assume that you or VRBO will be able to reach Piers promptly to resolve the problem. I would give this experience zero stars if I could. I hope that you have a better experience in Berlin than I did. 05 October 2017 - 12:01:00

    Enjoyed my stay in Piers apartment. Getting the keys was no problem and the flat was clean and nice and well suited for a group of four. Piers was an excellent host and I recommend this place to anyone . 26 December 2017 - 09:10:00

    Die Wohnung in Berlin-Mitte (nicht Prenzlauer Berg!!!) liegt gnstig und ruhig. Aber sie bedarf dringend einer intensiven Grundreinigung und Neuausstattung. Tisch, Sthle, Sessel, Doppelbett, Rollo, Lampenschirme, Pfannen, Badezimmer (um einige Beispiele zu nennen) sind angesichts des Preises nicht mehr zumutbar - kaputt, verdreckt, verbraucht. In allen Ecken, in den Schrnken, auf Lampen, Steckdosen, im Badezimmer (Pilzbefall und Verkalkung) oder unter dem (kaputten) Lattenrost des Bettes ist es sehr dreckig! Die Kchenausstattung ist unvollstndig und nicht geeignet, um fr 4 Personen ein Essen zu kochen (wie eigentlich geplant), ganz zu schweigen von den alten Fernsehern und dem nicht funktionierenden Internet! Schade um die eigentlich gut geeigneten Rumlichkeiten, dass man sie so verkommen lsst! Da kann auch der sehr nette Ansprechpartner Danilo nichts "rausreien". 08 October 2017 - 17:53:00

    Great location near Alexanderplatz! There was plenty of hot water and the beds were warm. The kitchen was nice. Check in was a problem despite clear instructions about our arrival time. We had to wait in the dark for almost an hour before the caretaker arrived. We called the caretaker as instructed but he did not pick up his phone. The internet was broken (the caretaker knew this but made no effort to fix the issue.) Despite the issues we enjoyed the apartment. 10 November 2017 - 08:23:00
