We are looking to rent our lovely, quiet 2 room apartment for the 2019-20 academic year (flexible dates, but preference will be given to those who stay for 10 months). The flat is in a great area on the boundary between Friedrichshain and Prenzlauerberg. It is an altbau with high ceilings, large windows and wooden floors (67m^2). We have used it for extended periods when I am working in Berlin archives and libraries, and we love living in this light, spacious, brilliantly located flat.
The apartment is in a pleasant, well-maintained back building overlooking trees. There are plenty of cafes and eateries in the immediate vicinity, as well as a good range of shops at Storkowerstrasse S-Bahn, a 10 minute walk away. The flat is also a short walk from both the wonderful Olympic swimming pool at Landsberger Allee and Volkspark Friedrichshain. It is 6 min walk from a major tram intersection, and 6 min walk in a different direction from the S-Bahn. Tram M5 or M6 will get you to Alexanderplatz in 8 min, with excellent access to the Humboldt, Staatsbibliothek Ost etc. 8 min on the tram M10 and you are in the heart of Prenzlauerberg.
The flat is tastefully furnished. The large, bright living room has a dining table with 2 benches. There is a sitting area, with large and comfortable sofa, armchair, coffee table. We have wifi but no TV. The small kitchen is light and well equipped with dishwasher, breakfast table for two, and freestanding worktop/ dresser in addition to fridge, hob, oven, fitted cupboards etc. The large bedroom has a double bed, and a single trundle bed with a pull out bed underneath. All the mattresses are excellent quality orthopaedic grade. You can store bedding, sheets, towels etc in the capacious drawers under the double bed. There is also a large, freestanding chest of drawers and a small desk in the bedroom, with a massive wardrobe in the spacious hallway. The bathroom is small and serviceable, with a toilet, bathtub, basin and washing machine. There is no shower.
Monthly rent: 1000 Euros all inclusive, including electricity, water, heating, internet.
Suitable for a non-smoking single person or couple. No pets please. Photographs available on request
