MAGIC, THE GREENS, BANKIERS AND FILMMAKERS

The house is a protected monument to one of the most famous areas of Berlin, Kreuzberg, also known as X-Berg, in one of Berlin's most famous streets. Built in 1895 Gutschow House, an important work of historicism (Neo-Gothic and Neo-Renaissance), is because of the elaborate façade design, its location, its history and as the only house in this area that 100% of the 2. World War II, the landmark of southern Friedrichstrasse. From 1910 to 1990, the magician's mecca was through the magical headquarters of the world-famous and respected wizard Conradi-Horster. Its magic protects until today the uniqueness of this place and its inhabitants. In 2006, the Greens created a unique opportunity for the then tenants: the right to buy the whole house, 21 apartments. But why did only a mother with two children make use of this right and promise to pay millions of pounds within 30 days that she did not have? How could she fight against gentrification by battling bankers and lawyers with the help of filmmakers? MyBerlinStyle is this moving Berlin past and present.

'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. ' (Dear Curiousnellie, Apartments 11 and 12 have an elevator since 2014.)

Beautiful, modern and spacious apartment in Berlin

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has abundant natural light and a great layout. The bedroom arrangement and 2 full bathrooms were perfect for our family of 5. There are two grocery stores nearby with everything we needed to make breakfasts (and even dinner if you're so inclined). We especially appreciated the apartment's well stocked kitchen. We also appreciated the fluffy towels and comfortable beds. Wish we would have had better weather so that we could have enjoyed the balcony. Thank you for providing us a wonderful home base for our first trip to Berlin!

Great Berlin Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this flat (Friedrichstrasse 17 Unit 11D). The location is excellent: easy walking distance to great retail and restaurants around the Gendarmenmarkt and the Kochstrasse U-Bahn station for anywhere else in Berlin you want to go. The flat is very spacious which allowed our two grown children to have their own bedrooms. You will be very comfortable here! The owner's rep is on site and will help you with any needs. The only warning is that there is no elevator, so carrying luggage up 3 flights of stairs can be a challenge. However, I highly recommend this location!

Worth the hike

  • 5 of 5

As we climbed the stairs to the room we dreaded our decision but that had to do with being 70 years old and suffering jet lag, but once we reached the apartment we fell in love. It was very spacious with a nice living area. The bedrooms were wonderful and we caught up on our sleep. We highly recommend this property to anyone but want to remind them there is no elevator. We would gladly stay there if we ever return to Berlin.

Nino and Marian were incredible hosts. We enjoyed every minute of our stay.

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is clean, comfortable and spacious. We stayed for a week and still has things to do in Berlin. Location is really good, just a 5 min walk from U-Bahn and within walking distance of many sights. Nino and Marian were very good hosta and were helpful in every way.

An Unusual Experience!

  • 3 of 5

Property is clean and centrally located. There is a very steep climb-up 3 flights. Bathrooms are huge. The furniture in the common area is uncomfortable and the trash room was crowded with boxes and trash. The beds are very comfortable.

The washer and dryer is more than adequate but there is an extra charge for each use. The kitchen area is sleek with nice appliances but

NO soaps or paper goods are present upon arrival -not even a dish towel. The stove was not unlocked for use.. We relied on the Internet to find instructions.The building has so much character but the apartment lacks a decorative touch. If English is your language you may have some difficulty dealing with the owner. Please read your contract VERY carefully.. The owners fees are yours to pay.. We enjoyed our stay in Berlin but this rental experience was difficult in comparison to accommodations in other countries.

Owner's Response: Hello Eugene, as online described, this apartment has no elevator and there are 50 steps from street level. If elevator is a must for future guests, please ask before booking. The size of the stairs in Berlin are standardized which means that all the backyard stairs are the same. We have experienced much steeper stairs outside Berlin. The furniture in common area is shown in the pictures marked with the same apartment number, so that the guests can decide before booking if this is comfortable for them. The charges of 3 Euro per hour for washing (including our washing fluid) or drying have been also described online. We are very sorry that soap, dish towel and kitchen roll has not been provided. The stove has a children lock. For this reasons we provide a mobile phone were you could call us free of charge if you need any assistance. For the trash room is the house administration in charge. We asked them to clean it more often. My English is at the level I am writing this review, but not all my family members can speak or write so well. Please, ask for Marian if you have communication problems. All the fees we charge are described online under notes and not only in the contract. We are very sorry that you experiences things you did not expect. We want constantly to get better. Please, let us know what can specifically get improved. We are grateful to our guests for any feedback. Our goal is high quality and as much decoration that can always be thoroughly cleaned before the next guests arrive.
