"Great Location, Good Size, but some big drawbacks"
I booked one of the apartments for a group of 4 including myself. It was listed on Expedia as offering 4 single beds. And the price and location were ideal given it was Gay Pride weekend in Berlin.
Price and location are certainly positive. There was plenty of room for four of us, and for a big group of friends to come in for some pre-drinks. Our apartment was set back from the road and faced an internal courtyard which was pretty quiet (except a few tweeting birds that woke up at the crack of dawn!).
But the stay and apartment were let down by 3 things:
1) Despite it stating 4 single beds it was 2 double beds. The hotel receptionist/manager was not apologetic and did not offer any solutions or compensation. I, stupidly, didn't push very hard on the issue. We worked around this (they were very wide double beds!) but it wasn't ideal.
2) The 2nd bedroom links directly to the lounge and is fully open plan (i.e. no doors). This could be an issue
3) Related to this, the fact there were no curtains to the lounge meant the 2nd bedroom was VERY light VERY early. Luckily, we were drunk enough to sleep through this, but otherwise it would have been an issue.
So if you are looking for a party pad for a weekend, its OK, especially if you are 2 couples. But it is let down by poor quality service (which seems to be a more general Berlin problem) and a poor 2nd bedroom.
