My Plus One
23rd March 2014
– Tried & tested in Berlin, Germany –
The concept of My Plus One is extraordinary. You spend the night in one of their apartments or in a hip partner hotel and on top of that you can book a local experience. I tested My Plus One in Berlin and slept in their trendy apartment in Neukölln (a new upcoming neighbourhood in Berlin). Go to their website, choose a destination (as it exists also in Paris, London, Amsterdam and Barcelona) and decide which local you want to spend time with.
You will ♡ My Plus One if:
- You want to see a city through the eyes of a local.
- You like off the beaten track experiences and want to get to know local hotspots.
- You love to meet new people.
You can decide to spend 3 or 5hrs with your local. I explored Berlin for 5hrs with Marianna. She took me to the Kreuzkölln area (where Neukölln & Kreuzberg come together) and showed me her favourite spots. I got to discover trendy coffee places, nice shops, interesting galleries, …
Kaffeebar, graefestraße 8, Berlin -> drink coffee between the locals
Voo Store, Oranienstraße 24, Berlin -> for real fashion lovers
Art Gallery Bathaniën, Mariannenplatz 2, Berlin -> art in an old hospital
Neue Nationalgalerie, Potsdamerstraße 50, Berlin -> modern art in the Mies van der Rohe building
Price: A short local experience costs 20 euros and a long one 40 euros. Accommodation rates from 60 euros per night.
Destinations: Today My Plus One exists in Berlin, Paris, London, Amsterdam and Barcelona.
