I am visiting Berlin for 2 months in April 2007 for work.
I am looking for an apartment for rent. I've been looing on the internet and I am considering two areas:
Friedrichshain or Neukolln
Can anybody tell me what these areas are like? Are they safe? Nice places to rent for a couple of months. What's good/bad about them.
The rent in Neukolln is much cheaper - probably a lower-income area but is it a nice place? Is it safe.
While Friedrichshain e.g. Simplonstrasse is more expensive - is it a nice area, worth paying a bit more for?
Which is better Friedrichshain or Neukolln?
Any advice gratefully received....
