Plus One Berlin is a new concept for living the travel experience like and with a local.
As read on springwise.com, the Plus One Berlin in fact “offers visitors to the city not just a studio apartment for nightly rent in Berlin’s Kreuzkölln neighborhood, but also the opportunity to connect with a participating local resident for advice and personalized experiences. Launched last month, Plus One Berlin’s Kreuzkölln space was designed by two Berlin-based architects using a combination of new and salvaged materials, and is located in close proximity to “friendly cafes, small hidden bars and popular restaurants”, in the company’s own words. Featuring a kitchenette, balcony and multifunctional living space, the apartment can sleep one to three people at a time. Even more interesting than the specifics of Plus One’s accommodations, however, is the fact that guests get access to the company’s stable of 28 local residents, chosen for their knowledge and passion for the city. When making their reservation, guests are given a login so they can browse the locals on staff. Once they pick one, they can indicate when they’d like to meet up with that person for an experience such as dinner at a local hangout, for example, and for how long. Plus One’s nightly rate of EUR 120 includes both accommodation and one experience with a chosen local for every two- to three-night stay.”
