Centrical, quiet, a lot of light, private, real.
Come to know the real Cologne.
Living room with piano, bedroom with original Tempur-bed (1,80), elevator, big balcony with morning sun. You can walk to: city center, the river Rhine, chocolate museum and even the cathedral.
Close to Köln Messe (trade fair) by subway.
We prefer to host guests who are looking for a private place, since we are not professional hosts. We live next door and rent the apartment from time to time to meet new people.
The apartment is in a walking distance to almost everything in the city. Still, it is not noisy - there is no direct traffic noise since it is not located directly at the street front!
A third person can stay in the living room; there is an old, but really comfortable sofa (I sleep myself on it sometimes).
You have your own, private apartment. We live next door.
My husband has his cloths at the apartment. Usually, he takes everything he needs before we have a guest. But just in case he forgets something, it would be very nice if you allowed him to come in and take it.
Of course, he would contact you in advance and ask you which time would fit you, he would never just come in!!!
Interaction with guests
We live next door and are happy to help you with whatever you need.
You can either ring the doorbell, call me on my mobile or send me an email.
Don't worry, we won't get on your nerves, if you prefer more privacy! :-)
Other things to note
The washing machine is downstairs, not inside the apartment. You can use it with 20Cent-coins (3-5 coins, depending on the temperature).
Please note: Since it is for everybody in the house, sometimes it may be blocked, but usually it is free. (I've been using it like this for 20 years.)
We would kindly ask you not to smoke inside of the apartment.
If you wish, you may smoke on the huge balcony.
You may play the piano, but please respect the silent times (1-3 p.m. and between 10 p.m. and 9 a.m.). Thank you!
