0.25km from KNESE Berliner SpeiselokalWe stayed for 3 nights in November, booking through Booking.com. Although there was a slight issue on check in, it was dealt with very efficiently and effectively. We were given what I would describe as a 2 bed apartment, even though we had booked a double bedroom with a fridge. It was really warm and cozy with a great little kitchen, big fridge, lovely eating area, very good shower, excellent WiFi and oodles of space. All of this at a great price! The area was very safe and central, with Kurfürstendamm just around the corner. There are both u bahn and s bahn stations within easy walking distance, making it very easy to get from the airport. Also there were numerous cafes and restaurants in the immediate vicinity and a Lidl withing a 5 minute walk. Maybe the decor is a little tired, but the place is sparkling clean, which I think counts much more. Yes, you can hear the trains go by, but with the windows closed in November it really wasn't a problem. In fact I found it quite comforting. It's nice to lie in bed on holidays, thinking how lucky you are not to be going to work on one of those trains. We loved it!
