The apartment is located between the popular districts Friedrichshain and Prenzlauer Berg. It is a good starting point for activities in these districts and also in Berlin Mitte. It's very central and a quiet place to take a rest as well.
There is also a very good transport connection.
The charm of an old apartment with large rooms, high ceilings and wooden floor offers the best possibilities to relax and unwind.
High speed internet and a Sony Full HD Smart TV are available.
The room is one of two rooms in a charming old Berlin building with a courtyard. It's on the third floor. I live in the apartment too and will sleep in the other room while you are there if I am not traveling. The apartment is very calm, though it's a very good strategic starting points for activities in Friedrichshain, Prenzlauer Berg and Mitte.
Please note that the room cannot be locked, as it is not separated from the hallway by a door. Total privacy is provided though by two large curtains on the window and hallway front.
In the room there is a highspeed internet access (VDSL 50). A Sony LED Full HD smart TV can be used (including the possibility to use one’s own Netflix or Amazon prime account). TV channels are provided by Entertain from Telekom.
There is access to a small balcony with view on the courtyard. The balcony is shared with the other room.
The kitchen and bathroom are shared.
I try to do my very best to adapt to the needs of my guests. I respect the wish for privacy if guests want to stay on their own. But I am also an open-minded and outgoing person that likes to have a good talk and to interact. I like to share activities, like going to a bar, restaurant or cultural event. As I am working full time at a University, it might be though that I am busy or traveling.
My mother tongue is German, but I also speak Portuguese (as I have lived in Brazil) and English.
It's a calm residential area. So, strictly no partying in the room - there are enough good opportunities for really good parties in Berlin. The neighborhood should be respected by being friendly, tidy and by avoiding to make noise.
I am Thomas from Germany. I currently live in Bremen and Berlin where I work. I am a social and organizational psychologist working at University. I am an open-minded person who loves to travel and meet people.
