About the property

'RATED EXCELLENT'

'One of the most popular holiday properties in the region' Home Away

'WINNER - Best Vacation Rental, Berlin'

Downtown city landmark near Checkpoint Charlie

Best location if you want to reach most attractions on foot.

MAGICIAN THE GREEN, BANKERS AND FILMMAKERS

Gutschow house, built in 1895, a significant work of historicism (neo-Gothic and neo-Renaissance), is the symbol of the southern Friedrichstrasse because of the elaborate facade, its location and history. It is the only hotel in this area that 100% of the second World War II has survived. Perhaps because 1910-1990 was the Mecca of the magicians here by magic headquarters of the world famous magician Conradi-Horster?

2006 The Greens conjured a unique project: all tenants have received the right of first refusal for the entire house and thus the possibility in partnership with investors (first former bank directors, filmmakers later) to buy the house and rehabilitate. But why we have made use of this right? This is a part of the living past and present that you can experience. We call it MyBerlinStyle.

Reviews that ignite our passion:

'Feel the history; Love the Comfort 'by Curious Nellie:

'Six of us - women' d'un certain age'- stayed here at the beginning of this winter and werewolf all delighted with our choice. The building is beautiful Itself, redolent of end of empire flourish, while the apartment, with the gracious proportions of at Earlier era is warm and welcoming. We loved the beautiful original wooden floors, decorative plasterwork on the the bedroom ceilings, the sense of space, as well as the terrific shower in a stylish, modern bathroom. Our internal homemakers thrilled to the quality and solidity of the linens and general fittings (and dreamy beds). The kitchen is really well equipped so we did not just eat breakfast there but some prepared meals too, though there are some good restaurants close by. The main room and the bedrooms are really roomy, not even with 6 of us did it ever feel crowded. Marion, our host in Berlin, which welcoming and gave some really useful tips on eating out and things to do, and his welcome package which chosen with care - organic and delicious.

The location is great! so close to Museum Island did it makes a very comfortable stroll before a trip to the unmissable Pergamon. But if walking's not your thing then the wonderful Berlin public transport system is accessible only 2 mins away at the Cook Street stop. Another visit you must make is to the Jewish Museum Which is so only 2 mins walk from the building. This is a great city for history and culture fans, so get booking! you will not regret choosing this apartment as your base for your explorations. But first get fit and keep your luggage minimal; there are two flights to walk up. ' (Love Curious Nelly, Rooms 11 and 12 have since 2013 by a lift.)

We booked this apartment at short notice when our original Home Away booking made 6 months in advance was cancelled 3 days out due to a building issue.

The booking requires an upfront payment on booking request. Once accepted we were advised to download an app from a link that we did not receive, apparently due to our Australian account? Unfortunately, this left us without what I assume would have been essential and useful information regarding the apartment and the neighbourhood. An alternative link was sent but it provided information in German which was lost on us.

The apartment is spacious, well appointed, comfortable. The bedrooms are not ensuited and both bathrooms are located at one end of the apartment.

On arrival we were met, given a brief overview and paid our security deposit and city tax in cash. The owners made it clear that were available and accessible. Like most travellers we prefer to be as independent as possible.

Our concerns are that if the app is not accessible to everyone an old fashioned information sheet in the apartment is a necessity. Secondly, the owners withheld credit card fees from our security deposit. When the only payment method is via Home Away these charges are unavoidable and should be upfront and factored into the costing. A security deposit is a purpose fit payment and should not be a means of garnering further revenue.

The location is good, the apartment is good, our experience was less than ideal.

Fantastic apartment, great location and gracious hosts.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was great. Very close to the main sites and transport links the location was excellent . Visiting Berlin in chilly October, the apartment was a fantastic base, a warm and cosy place to return to after busy days sightseeing. We ate in some evenings using the well equipped kitchen and on other evenings tried out some of the restaurants nearby which were good. A Kaiser supermarket very close by was useful for provisions.

Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful and entertained us to tea which was lovely. It was also very interesting for us to hear about life in Berlin from residents.

Great apartment and attentive hosts in a fascinating city!

  • 5 of 5

My family’s stay at this historic building was fantastic. The apartment was clean, airy, and centrally located. Our apartment had 3 large bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. Perfect place to rest after a long day of sightseeing.

The owners were on vacation with their family when we were there. However, through emails and phone calls, they made sure that everything was perfect for our arrival, stay, and departure. My only regret is not being able to thank them in person!
