Reviewed 14 December 2011

I can recommend briliant apartments 100%. I have stayed twice, once in the apartment in Oderberger Str., once in Rykestrasse. Both are perfect location in the heart of the Prenzlauer Berg with lots of restaurants and shops around. Apartments are perfectly arranged for a weekend and very calm as they are in the courtyard. Very nice and helpful owners. Best place to stay for individual travellers in Prenzlauer BErg.

Stay here. We loved it. Stayed in summer on ground floor apt. for 4 nights with our 14 month old baby. Owners get it. Awesome experience. Great price, too. Outstanding, casual, cool.

Stayed 4 nights in Granat, which was very well appointed, central heating kept us warm and apartment was extremely peaceful. Sandra and Simon couldn't have been more helpful. The vicinity is excellent with plenty of great places to eat as well as the Krone Bar where we found the staff to be attentive and the breakfast great.

Room Tip: Granat is on the 4th floor, but very peaceful

Our apartment was stylish and well appointed. Location was excellent although it was a pity there was so much building work going on in the area. Cafe Krone had made great use of salvaged furniture but unfortunately the service was really slow. Staff didn't seem to be aware of customers, even when they were quiet. We eventually gave up on breakfast one morning after waiting 25 minutes for bread & cheese. Restaurant across the road Oderquelle was fab.

Lovely appartement, great location. We'll be back! Café Krone downstairs got the look&feel of Central Perk from Friends, the hitserie!
Prenzlauerberg is lovely. Must hire bikes to cycle around.

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.

A very spacious well furnished apartment, with lovely high ceilings, that represented excellent value. We were a family of four in two bedrooms, but the apartment would have taken 6 in comfort. The well equiped kitchen had all the necessary utensils. The Prenzlaver Berg district has a huge choice of bars and restuarants. The Tyros Palestinian Lebanese restaurant round the corner in Kastanienalle 24 has a great range of good value dishes. Great Russian food at the Pasternak. Excellent location for getting into the centre of Berlin quickly. The nearest underground was a 10 minute walk Simon and the staff in the Cafe Krone downstairs were very helpful and knowledgable about Berlin and the immediate area. If you're visiting the Reistag you now need to book on line 3 days in advance
