Private parking behind building is a positive. Reasonable walk to public transportation but still a commute to city center. We never met our host Andreas-we were greeted by Mr. Schroeder who showed us our apt. and shared some useful travel information. Not sure if he was the buil…
Response from Andreas:
Dear Ms Stevens, I'm really, really sorry that you didn't feel comfortable. But to me it says a lot that out of the 10 locations you stayed in you got only 2 reviews (including mine, which was positive). Sometimes it helps to read the posting before the booking. I keep my posting very short to make this easier. It's clearly said: "3rd floor, no lift." (European counting - you were travelling in Germany). We are not "handicapped accessible", true, but we don't pretend to be. The bath tub wall is shown in the photos. The Berlin city tax for private guests is especially mentioned in my posting, and it's the law, as you could easily prove (in English on the website of the city) - not my decision and not money for me. The distances are even less than posted - 5.8 km (3.6 miles) to Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag and American Embassy; 600 metres (650 yards) to walk (or 1 bus stop) plus 11 minutes by subway to Alexanderplatz (center of former East Berlin) or to train station Zoological Park (center of former West Berlin). All photos show the real apartment (except some small improvements - 1 more sofa bed, better kitchen equipment - and except the flowers on the balcony, for bad weather). Of course we have lightning - you have to press the button. All beddings are of course always washed. You stayed just 2 nights, I was absent from the house, but we talked on the phone and you knew that you could reach me at any time, day or night. If you'd called me it would have been a pleasure to me to meet you in person, but since I knew your time in Berlin was limited I didn't want to bother you.
