What you will love about this home
the room is part of a 2-bedroom-apartment. it's a nice quiet room on the courtyard side of an apartment on the 2nd floor of the rear building. the room has wooden floors and two big windows with a courtyard view. room size is 20,7 square meters. on top of this go 30 square meters (which means every space of the apartment except my flat-mate's room) to share. one of the long walls borders on the bath room, the second one on another building. the wall across from the windows borders on my flat-mate's room. the bath room is very spacious containing a bath tub/shower, toilet, basin and a washing machine. there is also a little, almost fully occupied lumber-room leading off the small hallway. the kitchen is well equipped with a sink, fridge incl. freezer, stove with oven, table and 4 chairs.
What you will love in the neighborhood
the building is situated right in the very popular and hip 'graefe-kiez' ('kiez' is a slang word for neighborhood) in berlin - kreuzberg (http://www.graefe-kiez.de). it is a very picturesque neighborhood, almost exclusively old buildings and streets. supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, bars, medics, a hospital, pharmacies and public traffics (underground and busses) are all conveniently reachable by walk within 0 to 8 mins. the 'volkspark hasenheide' (one of the numerous parks in berlin) is very close and properly of use as a walking-, jogging-, football- or just sun bath-area. also the 'kiez' attracts by its closesness to the water. the 'landwehr kanal' is 2 mins walk away and invites you to walk on by the bank promenades or lay down on the large greens to enjoy the sun in spring- and summertime. the selection of restaurants/bars in the area includes German, Turkish, Persian, Asian and Mediterrean kitchen. eventhough the 'kiez' is quite animated -especially on sunny days-, it spreads a peaceful atmosphere and you don't notice any noises from the street in the rear building-apartments. you can reach the 'alexanderplatz' by tube in 8 mins and from there you can explore Berlin's most famous sightseeing spots like 'brandenburger tor', 'reichstag' or 'berliner dom' easily by walk or tube within 5 to 10 mins.
