Berlin is the capital of the Federal Republic of Germany and also one of its federal states. With 3.7 million inhabitants, the city is the most populous and with 892 square kilometers also the largest municipality in Germany. Around 6 million people belong to the Berlin / Brandenburg metropolitan region. The city was first mentioned in 1237 and has been the capital of Brandenburg, Prussia and Germany throughout its history. After the end of World War II, the city was divided in 1945 by the victorious powers. East Berlin assumed the role of the capital of the German Democratic Republic from 1949, while West Berlin joined the Federal Republic of Germany. After the fall of the Berlin Wall and German reunification in 1990, the two halves of the city grew together again and Berlin regained its function as the all-German capital. Since 1999, the city has been the seat of the Federal Government, the Federal President, the Federal Council and numerous federal ministries and embassies.

Berlin is known as the world city of culture, politics, media and science. Berlin's universities, research institutions, sporting events and museums enjoy an international reputation. The major economic sectors include tourism, the creative and cultural industries, as well as the biotechnology and health industries. The major local companies in the city include Deutsche Bahn, Charité, Deutsche Wohnen, Rocket Internet and Axel Springer SE.

What is an apartment?

We offer you on our portal a selection of well-kept and affordable apartments in the best downtown locations of Cologne, Essen and other cities in North Rhine-Westphalia / Germany. The offers are in accordance with our quality guidelines and come from private and commercial landlords whom we know personally.

Our furnished apartments are self-contained and fully equipped units with a kitchen and a private bathroom. Above all, they offer more space and more comfort than many hotel rooms. Moreover, our apartments are more than just an impersonal place to stay. They are a temporary home.

An apartment is generally understood to mean a furnished apartment that is rented out to guests for a certain period of time for an agreed rental price. Legally, it is furnished living space, which is rented for temporary use (guest accommodation contract / accommodation contract). As a rule, apartments are self-contained residential units with their own sanitary facilities, a self-catering facility and a living and sleeping area. The sanitary area includes at least a sink, a toilet and a shower or bath. Self catering facilities include at least one kitchenette with fridge and sink.

Equipment and quality

Larger apartments have next to a living room one to two bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen with all common appliances (eg fridge with freezer, stove, oven, microwave, sink or dishwasher, kettle, coffee maker, toaster, etc.) and cooking utensils (Pots, plates, crockery, cutlery, can opener, whisk, bowls, champagne glasses, cups, chopping board, egg cup, corkscrew, kitchen scissors, tea towels, pepper, salt, olive oil, etc.) a guest toilet, a balcony or a terrace. The bathroom also includes a mirror, bathroom furniture, soap dispenser, hair dryer and basic cleaning products and consumables. Especially here, cleanliness is the top priority. Modern bathrooms can also have a wellness character, if z. For example, a sauna or a whirlpool was integrated. There should be at least 1 small and 1 large towel per guest.

The beds in the bedrooms should be equipped with high quality bed bases, mattresses and hygiene covers. Tip: Harder mattresses are more suitable for guests with back problems and have a longer life. Because, who does not sleep well in bed, will certainly never come back. For each guest additional pillows and another blanket should be available. Optionally, you can still have a cot available. In the bedroom is also a sufficiently large wardrobe, a large mirror, a chest of drawers and bedside tables.

The living area should include a place where you like to stay. This can be z. For example, a modern living area with a sofa, plenty of seating and with appropriate media (wireless internet, satellite TV, music system, etc.). Of course, the couch should not be eaten and the furniture not worn. Toys for children, as well as books and magazines are also recommended. In addition, a dining area with plenty of seats for all guests should be available. In the corridor is a wardrobe with mirror, possibly another cabinet with vacuum cleaner and cleaning equipment and a shoe cabinet recommended. Of course, guests will be pleased with sufficient towels and linen at no extra charge, as they have less luggage. If a balcony or a terrace is offered, appropriate garden furniture should be available.

The quality of the equipment of apartments is often very different. If landlords have not already certified their apartments by the German Tourism Association e.V., a free classification by Alloggia.de can be done on our portal. The test criteria result from our quality guidelines. In the general minimum conditions that all accommodation must meet, essential rules for maintenance, cleaning, hygiene, equipment and furnishings are included. In addition, Alloggia.de awards for apartments, depending on the quality level, a maximum of three stars:

Alloggia star categories

Temporary rental of holiday apartments

Renting a holiday apartment to e.g. Holidaymakers are considered leases for temporary use within the meaning of § 549 Abs. 2 No. 1 BGB. The absolute maximum for such a rental is one year. However, this only applies if the reason for renting by the renter is only temporary. If it is intended to rent a holiday home for several months, then it is necessary to include the purpose of leasing (eg leasing to an employee with a fixed-term contract) in the contract. Otherwise, a normal lease arises with the provisions for protection against dismissal, etc.
