Relatively easy access to mitte and museums. Ability to cook our own food, especially when on special diet. Cost of dining out were substantially reduced. Mr. Wepener was very helpful in organising someone to give us the apartment keys at a late hour (22:00h) and advised us of our options in commuting to the city from Schoenefeld airport (although we did not see him in person). some basic cooking ingredients were made available at the aparment plus liquid soap and detergents.
The floor was of a stone finish and collected some dust. Some carpet was needed beside bed and also in lounge. Bed base frame was insecure and collapsed when someone just sat upon it. The frame had been previously secured with what looked like paper tape. We were able to adjust and secure the frame (temporarily?) during our stay. It was only a makeshift job. the occupier of the bed had to move around carefully in order to avoid a reoccurrence of the event.
The location and the big space what the apartment offer. A nice relax balcony and the bakery was just around the corner. A few minutes walk to the S-bahn (Hackescher Markt) which gave you directly connection to the Hauptbahnhof (and many other locations).
The smell at the entrence of the complex was not attractive. Fortunately it was not in our appartment. The whole entrence could look much better with small attention.
The American restaurant, boutiques, the underground, shop all nearby. It is possible to prepare most.
Keys have brought with a delay at two o'clock. There are no Russian channels on TV. Cleaning before arrival did not spend or spent, but it is very bad. The case in a bedroom is broken, the bed creaks. At a shower the hose comes off. The linen on a bed was pure, but without an iron. A sofa in the big room with the big stain. On kitchen the dining table with glass when on it that that you put is distributed a roar.
Excellent location and very good value. However only one key was provided for three independent people. This was not satisfactory and we had to get two more cut at our expense. A small thing but one which would greatly improve convenience for guests.
Only one key for three people. Not at all convenient. We had to get two more cut ourselves.
The Location was good.
The heating in the room was not working properly.They charged 30 Euro for cleaning though it doesn't say so on their bookings.com page.
The apartment is big and right in the centre of the city.
There were a few basic facilities missing for a self catering apartment: hairdryer, bottle opener, can opener, normal sized dinner plates.The shower head fell off.The furniture and decoration are very spartan.
