Booking.com guest review guidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This lets us know that our reviews come from real guests, like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or quiet room than someone who’s stayed at the property before?
We want you to share your story, both the good and the bad. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinion and experiences, which are critical in helping guests make well-informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, and are treated with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full, as quickly as possible, after being moderated to comply with Booking.com guidelines. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
Once a review has been submitted, you can modify it by contacting Booking.com customer service.
We will use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content as well as the property replies to that content.
We will allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is that of a distributor of feedback from both guest and property.
Guidelines and standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly without limiting expression of strong opinions. They are also applicable regardless of the sentiment of the comment.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include 'hate speech', discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, and the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.
By default, reviews are sorted based on the date of the review and on additional criteria to display the most relevant reviews, including but not limited to: your language, reviews with text, and non-anonymous reviews. Additional sorting options may be available (by type of traveller, by score, etc...).

눉Just a small thing: one of the armchairs tried to bite off a piece of my trousers, successfully:( needs to be repaired. And a warning: cafe Habana (at the crossroads) tends to add things you didn’t eat or drink to your bill! Pay attention! It was the first time for all our trips (and we’ve had a lot) that we were cheated:(
눇Absolutely nice apartment in green, comfortable and seemingly safe neighborhood (lots of cafes and small shops). The apartment is in a quiet yard,so we didn’t hear any noise except bird singing in the morning. It has everything you need (including a hair dryer:)) for a short stay for two. Given instructions were precise so we had NO problem finding the apartment. Had some minor misunderstanding-problem was solved the same day,the owner (though we didn’t meet) seems to be a very responsible and reliable person,willing to make your stay as comfy as possible.Thank a lot! Keep this place in “favorites” and stay next time we are in Berlin.

눉Key pick-up and unit locality was a travellers worst nightmare ! Extremely unhelpful key agent and no information on the actual location of the unit (500 m walk to agent to pick key up and then 600 m walk to unit). All owner had to do was provide a single information sheet with receipt, but obviously too arogant and cheap to do so ! When we couldn't find the unit we were accused of lying about the lack of information provided. Only book this unit if there are no other units available in Berlin !!!

눉The fridge did not work, but the owner sent a repairman (who unfortunately couldn't repair it). I believe that a new fridge is already installed.
눇Great, funky and calm area, close to S-bahn and Bus station, many nice restaurants. Big food shop 5 min walk away. The owner is super responsive and very nice to communicate with. Would definitely recommend!!

눉The man in the kiosk where the keys were picked up was extremely unhelpful. Barely said anything or responded to questions and claimed to have “absolutely no idea where the apartment was”
눇Property was absolutely beautiful. Far far nicer than expected. Extremely warm and comfortable and well equipped. Zero complaints. Absolutely would stay again!

눉The house rules were very strict about noise, because of the neighbours, apparently. You were not supposed to talk in the hallway from 21:00-09:00, watch the TV at a high volume, raise/lower the shutters etc. However, the people living upstairs were making a CRAZY racket every night- until early morning hours. It sounded like one or two persons were walking with heavy steps on the hardwood floor while moving furniture, which was very nerve wrecking but I don't think it's reason enough to call the police:) So, sleeping was hard at times. Construction work going on in the courtyard, which is also noisy. People walking by the bedroom window day and night are also noisy. But remember to follow the house rules and not make ANY noise after 21.00, because the noisy neighbours might be bothered...:) So, I obviously didn't like the noise rules. What did I like? I the location, due to proximity of public transport and good food places (Boxhagener Pl. is a 10-minute stroll away). The apartment itself is nice enough. Wouldn't hurt them to include more than one small and one big towel for a 7-day stay, though. Would recommend this place to quiet couples without sleeping problems.
눇I liked the location of the apartment.

눇An amazingly well maintained apartment. Nearly all amenities were provided by the host. It was a very comfortable stay for us. The area around the apartment is very good and the metro station is very close. The host is an amazing lady who is extremely helpful and understanding. This is an important facet to have especially when one is staying in a new country for the first time. All in all a very comfortable and pleasant stay.

눉A big apartment, but without closets in which to put you clothes. Is situated at the 4th floor, hard to find because is isn't anything that signalize the proper door. The guy from the Meet Kiosk (where you get the keys) is always shrugging his shoulders, is not able to call the owner or to solve any problem. We had troubles with the internet connection, don't count on it... The communication with the owner is hard to realize, especially when you have a problem. The parking on the street is very expensive, but we manage to find a parking place at 800 m from apartment.
눇The apartment is very big, suitable for maximum 7 persons.

눉Having read all comment on the Studio on Niederbarnimstrasse 6, I truly was warned. Still, I ran up to the fifth floor with my have backpack: on the front building. Twice... So temper your thrill and walk through the corridor to the garden. One night it was more than 20 degrees outside. People from the nice modern building at the back of number 5 were chatting on the balcony at 5 am. You can hear that. As you hear glass bottles being dumped in the bin. And people on the stairs. I did not find this disturbing (at all). I requested a late checkout. Had to pay for the extra service in advance, but the late checkout could not be guaranteed. I was OK with that, and understood. On the day of checkout I happened to check the spam box of my mail account (for a totally different reason). Found a mail from Lodge with the request to checkout by 11.00, as the received a new reservation. Mailed at 6 pm on the night before checkout. Their mails did not go to my spam box before. I was happy to find it in time, but had appreciated a phone call/text message too.
눇The location it superb. Close to the subway (U5 Samariterstrasse), tram (M10 Frankfurter Tor, M21 Niederbarnimstrasse ), bus (line 240 Simon Dachstrasse) and train (Warschauerstrasse S5/S7/S75). Pubs and restaurants all over and all day. Bed is 1.40 meter: perhaps a bit smaller as you have at home. Internet (DSL) was very good.

눉When we went to pick up the keys they tried to charge us over 50 euros more than was in agreement. First the customer service person blamed us for not reading the emails (even we have everything printed out with us) they found out it was their mistake. Still we never get any apologies from that.
