Best of Airbnb: Berlin

I only discovered the awesomeness of Airbnb after we’d already planned our holiday to Berlin last year, so I missed out on the opportunity to stay in one of the stunningly stylish apartments on offer.

We stayed in the Michelberger Hotel, which is both stunning and weird –  the website is a good reflection of the creative bonkers-ness of the place (it has the Big Lebowski running on a constant loop in all the lifts and silently on every corridor).  I’d highly recommend it (and its associated bar/cafe space), but if you’re looking for an Airbnb experience, then these six are a taster of the many impressive spaces available.

1. Stylish lodge in the heart of Kreuz – this apartment boasts some beautiful artwork and prints and some very enviable furniture – I love the vintage desk and stools.

2. – Beautiful 2 BD, Prenzlauer Berg – this is a light, bright apartment with some bold colour highlights and a beautiful balcony with fantastic views over the city.

3. Three Bedroom Apartment at Humann Place – I’m a little bit in love with the kitchen here.  The light, the  combination of the wooden surfaces and white tiles, the low shelving and vintage ceramics.  If I stayed in this apartment I’m not sure I’d venture much further to be honest, though it would be a shame as it’s located in the beautiful gentrified Prenzlauer Berg area (note: it has a 4 night minumum stay).

4. Bright & Central Apartment, Friedrichshain – this apartment has an understated mid century modern style with a minimalist colour palette.  It’s located in the chic neighbourhood of Freidrichshain which has some fantastic bars and cafes.  It’s also very, very reasonably priced (although it has a minimum 3 nights stay).

5. Room in Artist Loft Berlin Kreuzberg – If you’re up for a more sociable experience, this artists’ working and living space is a fascinating and stunning loft with impressive floor to ceiling windows.  You rent a room (with shared bathroom) which is part of a wider working space for artists and creatives in this fun, hip area of Berlin.

6.  Top style in lovey neighbourhood –  I probably shouldn’t admit to the list of things I’d want to steal from the pictures below – the lamp, the vase, the bathroom floor, the sink, the chalkboard walls….the list goes on…   This immaculately styled apartment could easily be in an interiors magazine.  It’s located in Prenzlauer Berg and gets glowing reviews.
