Prenzlauer Berg is my favourite area in Berlin. Hufelandstraße itself is packed with numerous cafes, restaurants, bakeries, gelato-stores, fashion-stores and parks (Volkspark Friedrichshain). It's ridiculously convenient; a tram taking only 10min to AlexanderPlatz, allowing an easy connection to anywhere in Berlin. The area's populated by young families, making it a safe and friendly neighbourhood to reside in. The apartment itself is from the early 1900's so you have your dose of history too.
