The Brandenburg/Berlin region
Like Paris or London, Berlin contains multitudes and the many different areas in Former East and West Berlin like Mitte, Kreuzberg, Friedrichshain, Prenslauerberg, Wilmersdorf, and Charlottenburg (where this apartment is situated) are all worth exploring , each having its own distinct flavour and dynamics.
Berlin's transport system is smooth and moving amongst the various districts will generally take between 10 and 20 minutes. This apartment is less than1 U-Bahn stop to Zoo or 10 -15 minutes walk,and the buses X34 and M49 both go to S and U Bahn Zoologischer Garten, which is a central clearing point. Don't miss buses 100 or 200 from Zoo which are ideal to jump on for a tour of the most interesting sights the city has to offer. Tegel Airport is 6 kilometres away, and Schonefeld 15 kilometres.
Recreation park and lake Lietzensee is a 5 minute bus ride or half an hour's walk.
Berlin's Zoo & Aquarium is 5 minutes' away by bus/S Bahn.
Charlottenburg Palace a 20 minute bus ride from Zoo.(M45) . Behind Zoo station, is the excellent Museum of Photography, the iconic Kaiser-Wilhelm Gedachtniskirche. Don't miss 'The Story of Berlin' just west of the Uhlandstrasse U-Bahn.
Further afield is Wannsee (Europe's biggest inland beach) and Potsdam , but both can be accessed by the S7 straight from Savignyplatz S-Bahn train station. In fact, S Bahn Savignyplatz runs through many must-see areas like Hackesher Markt, Friedrichstrasse,Alexanderplatz.
Nearby is the Tiergaten another huge recreational complex with a renowned flea market on Sundays.
A stone's throw away is the Wednesday and Saturday open air market with fresh produce, organic food and bakery items.

"A perfect, nicely decorated and spacious apartment in a superb location."
We really loved this gem of an apartment. We actually stayed here whilst on business, but we really loved the area it was in, really close to the train station and full of boutiques and restaurants. It seems to be off the tourist path too and more residential, so it was really quiet. The apartment itself was really cute, with high ceilings and very comfortable beds. It really had everything we needed, plus a great shower! Also the owner and the guy that met us with the key were really reliable and responsive to questions. There was also free Wifi which was an added bonus.

"This is a great apartment in a great location with excellent advice given by the owners regarding local amenities."
We arrived safely due to the accurate directions and we were greeted warmly by Steven Cock-Cely who gave us a detailed breakdown on the neighbourhood, its restaurants, bars and shops. We found them all delightful. The apartment is quiet, comfortable, well equipped and easy to manage. We recommend this apartment highly.

"Cosy, comfortable and perfect location"
I stayed at Savignyplatz with my boyfriend for a long weekend break. It is perfect for a romantic weekend or to go with friends to sample the delights of what Berlin has to offer. The apartment is in Charlottenburg with good transport links, it is close to bars, boutiques and excellent restaurants. The apartment is really cosy and has been put together well and feels really homely. I would definitely recommend Berlin and staying here!!
I am glad my recent guests loved the eclectic way we decorated this apartment - mostly new IKEA beds and tables & chairs together with some retro items assembled by my daughter who is a Fine Arts graduate. I would lke to point out that though the apt is in Charlottenburg officially, it is really just off Mitte as some interested parties tend to ask if we are West of Centre whereas we are right where the action is, as those who stayed in this apt found out. So it is in a Top Location and so near to the heart of events and well-placed for sightseeing.

Nice older style 1 bed apartment in West Berlin in a courtyard setting on the ground floor. Plenty of space for a couple. Slightly shabby chic but excellent hot shower which is most important and it w… More
I am glad our guests single out the great location of the apt as well as the apt itself - which has character with a cozy bedroom and bright, high ceilinged living room, not to mention a good propertioned breakfast room-cum-kitchen. We have free wifi since February 2011. However this broke down in August 2011 but was put right by the broadband provider in the same month.
I hope this doesn't ever happen again as free internet access is very much appreciated by our guests!

"Very good location"
The apartment is as described in the add, and looks as it does in the pictures, so not any bad surprises.
Very good location, centrally and quiet still.
Close to nice restaurants, shops and the train station so it's easy to get around.
Its central location and the easy ambience of the neighbourhood are reasons we love this apt.Hopefully our guests would enjoy these special qualities as well.
