Bright, Big and Cosy in Neukölln
|Address||Lichtenrader Straße, 12049 Berlin, Germany|
|Response time||A few hours|
This is only one of the many attractions this flat offers. Another is surely the extreme good connection to all kinds of traffic. The Airport Schönefeld, the new international airport in Berlin, is only 20min by Taxi. The next Highway Exit, Britzer Damm, is only 6 Minutes by car. The next Subway is 6minutes by foot. There you can get directly to Keuzberg, Alexanderplatz, Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg.
The apartment is in the so called Schiller-Kiez, a rather quit area with lots of trees, which keeps the air very good. It's a very multi-culti neighborhood, so everybody will feel at home rather soon. Lots of students, artists and young families live here. There is Restaurants and Shops in the neighborhood. And it's very close to the hippest places in Berlin. The Reuter-Kiez in Kreuzberg for example is only 3 stops by subway and 10min by bicycle. Oranienstrasse, the heart of Kreuzberg is only 4 stops. If you are rather into visiting the palaces in Potsdam you can get there quickly over the highway or take the S-Bahn nearby.
Of course our flat is very well equipped with all sorts of cooking equipment, dishes, glasses etc. It is freshly renovated, so everything is clean and new, especially the kitchen and bathroom. There is a flatscreen, Wifi, ipod docking station for your own sound and internet radio. Fresh towels and bedclothes are self-evident and the rooms are cleaned every week.
Though the apartment is non-smoking you can smoke on the balcony. Please notice, normally there's a cat living in this rooms, although she will be gone when you come.
Our building has quiet an interesting history:
Before 2009 the "LIRA 32" has been famous as THE place-to-be for parties and experimental projects. The front building was well-known as the “Flamingo Beach Lotel”, a project created by the artist Miss Marylou: every flat was decorated from floor to ceiling in barocco-kitsch style by several artists. The purpose was to offer an unforgettable arty experience for low-budget travellers.
We tried to rescue a bit of the "Flamingo Beach Lotel"-time and put some of our apartment's pictures on the kitchen's wall again. The couple of pink flamingos on the right side of the building's main entrance are as much LIRA32-relicts as the nice wall paintings called “Heissball” and " La vie en Rose" in the first courtyard.
Last but not least there is us. We are born here and know all the whereabouts in this town. So no matter, what You are looking for, we will bring you there and are happy to give You advice in many ways.
For two persons you will get one bedroom in our apartment. You have a private bathroom and share the kitchen with us. But if you visit us with more than two people, each additional persons pays 10 Euros extra we have a sleeping sofa for that. We even are able to manage a separate second sleeping room, which costs 20 Euro per Night and person.
Visitors of Berlin have to pay a „Tourist-Tax“ of 5% of the plain apartment’s price. Business travellers are excluded from this. Read the document provided by the city of Berlin, concerning a tax visitors have to pay.

Reviews of this property
We, two children and my father in law, had a nice stay at Uschi. The apartment is close the at U Bahn station and to Tempelhof flybahn, which is a area where the children can run/bike and play and the adults can relax.
We, family of four, spent a week in this lovely and huge apartment. 2 bedrooms a large living room/kitchen combined and a spaceous bathroom. A wonderfull and tastefully decorated apartment. Don't be alarmed about the graffiti and the missing tiles in the hallway.. In the kitchen there is everything you could possibly want. And if you don't want to prepare meals yourself, there is plenty of ethnic restaurants and cafees, "just around the corner" if you want to go "downtown" Berlin, take the U Bahn Leinestrasse, and you will be at Alex in 10 minutes. Uschi is a very nice and flexible host, she didn't mind my late arrival. This is much better, cosier and more homely than any hotel room. I am very satisfied and I wish it was possibel to reward this apartment (and Uschi) with more than five stars
Uschi and Rainer are super hosts, totally flexible and ready to help! The apartment is absolutely great and the location is awesome! Thanks for everything!
Uschi und Rainer sind super Gastgeber, total flexibel und hilfebereit! Die Wohnung ist der absolute Hammer und auch die Lage ist genial! Vielen Dank für alles!
We spent 3 days with our two children (12 & 15 years old) spent in this very well equipped apartment. The kitchen is truly a dream - it's all there, and the rest of the house leaves much to be desired - everything was as described. The hosts are very nice and helpful and the subway within 5 minutes walking distance. This runs every 10 minutes, so you ... in a few minutes at Alexanderplatz, the Bundestag is. Parking in front of the house are also available and in 3 minutes you are in the vast park "Tempelhof freedom". From the outside view of the house, you should not be impressed - the apartment itself and the hosts are perfect.
Wir haben 3 Tage mit unseren beiden Kindern (12 u. 15 Jahre alt) in dieser sehr gut ausgestatteten Wohnung verbracht.
Die Küche ist wirklich ein Traum - es ist alles vorhanden und auch der Rest der Wohnung lässt keine Wünsche übrig - alles war wie beschrieben. Die Gastgeber sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit und die U-Bahn in 5 Minuten zu Fuß erreichbar. Diese fährt im 10 Minuten Takt, so dass man in wenigen Minuten am Alexanderplatz, Bundestag ... ist. Parkplätze vor dem Haus sind auch vorhanden und in 3 Minuten ist man im riesigen Park der "Tempelhofer Freiheit".
Von der Außenansicht des Hauses sollte man sich nicht beeindrucken lassen - die Wohnung selbst und die Gastgeber sind perfekt.
We spent 4 nights in this appartement with our 2 children, 6 and 9 years old. The appartment is huge, very convenient with 2 separate bedrooms, and extremely well equiped, specially the kitchen... Those who do not know Berlin should not be impressed by the tags outside the building and on the door ;) ; once in the appartment, you feel really at home, with maps of the city, city guides, WiFi access, etc. A very nice place, quiet, easy to park for free in front of the door, 5 mn walk from the subway which will lead you directly to Alexanderplatz. We highly recommand this nice appartment.
Very friendly hosts, a nice and clean apartment, subway 5 minutes. We have felt ourselves.
Sehr freundliche Gastgeber, eine schöne und saubere Wohnung, U-Bahn 5 min. Wir haben uns wohl gefühlt.
Very nice appartment in a quiet neighbourhood. It was easy to find the adress and it was possible to park outside the appartment. Lovely flat, and Templehof (park) within a short distance. 5 min walk to public transportation.
