Four of us stayed in the Achat apartment for three nights during the Berlin Marathon weekend, and it was lovely. The apartment is spacious, clean and very tastefully decorated with new fixtures & fittings. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and crockery, and the beds were very comfortable.
There was no problem with noise within the apartment block, and though the building does sit opposite a fire/ambulance station, this was not a problem for us.
The location is superb, in Prenzlauer Berg, only 30-40mins from Tegel Airport on public transport, on a lovely street full of restaurants, cafes and shops. Though many of the restaurants and cafes stay open late (to about midnight), it never got noisy. It is only a short walk to Eberswalde Strasse U-Bahn, from where the rest of Berlin can quickly be explored. And if you're interested in the Berlin Wall, it is only a 5 minute walk from the superb Berlin Wall Memorial that runs along Bernauer Str. from its meeting with Gartenstrasse to Schwedter Str. http://www.berliner-mauer-gedenkstaette.de/en/
Finally, Simon & Sandra, the owners, are lovely. Perfect in communicating everything we needed for our stay, and very pleasant people.
I would highly recommend, and thought it was very good value.
