This spacious, 1000 sq ft. (90m2) loft is located in an old factory in the heart of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg on the Spree. Set in a quiet courtyard it is close to the city centre and part of a vibrant neighbourhood.
Köpi 10a is a converted jam preserve factory from the late 19th Century, surrounding a courtyard behind a beautiful listed building in Kreuzberg's 'Wrangelkiez', on the banks of the river Spree. The area was formerly the easternmost district of West Berlin, and you can still see what remains of the Berlin Wall in form of the East Side Gallery on the opposite bank of the river. Home to an eclectic mix of professionals, artists, and creatives from all walks of life, this has, for us, become somewhat of a quiet oasis away from the bustling streets of Berlin.
The flat has two bedrooms and one bathroom (with bath and shower), as well as a large communal area and a big terrace. It is equipped with a fully functioning kitchen and all modern 'creature comforts.' It will comfortably house two couples or a family of up to four, with two kids sharing the smaller bedroom.
You will have access to the entire flat, which has its own outside entrance through the courtyard. If you are renting bicycles, you will have a key for the gate to keep them in the courtyard.

When you arrive, we will give you the keys and show you around. We can be reached 24 hours in case of emergency. Arrival and departure times flexible.
The flat is non-smoking. There is a large terrace with seating for smokers, just please dispose of your cigarette ends in the provided ash trays. The apartment can be completely blacked out with shutters.
This is a private residence, and all we ask is that you treat it with the same respect as you would your own home. Since there have been occasional complaints in the past, we would like you to observe the quiet times in the courtyard after 10PM, especially if you are returning from a Berlin night out. That means minimal talking in the courtyard at night - sound carries throughout the entire complex and it will wake people up. A lot of them.
Recently, the senate of Berlin issued a bed tax for tourists (Touristensteuer) of 5% of the total cost of your stay, which you can pay to me via your debit or credit card when you are here.
Absolutely no parties please. You are more than welcome to have guests for dinner or drinks and the kitchen is fully equipped to cook in, but please observe the outside quiet times.
We are dog and house cat friendly. Please provide your own bedding, bowls, and/or litter box and please be aware that there are baited rodent traps throughout the property. No rodents or reptiles please. A cleaning charge of 50€ applies for pets travelling with you, as we need to deep clean afterwards to keep things nice for people with possible allergies.
No stag parties, no club tourists.
