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 space

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).

Guest access

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.)

Julia's place was cosy and clean. A quick walk to the city centre and anywhere else you would want to be in Cologne. It was also located on a very quiet street. You feel like a local staying at Julia's place. Would definitely stay there again. Thanks again, Julia!

Great host, location and apartment. Julias' place is a quiet, top floor apartment in what felt like a safe area. Transport was easy, the metro is really close, but also not to far from the centre. The walk is 15 - 20 mins depending on the length of your legs.

Julia's home is located in very quiet neighbourhood. The place looks exactly as the photos and every bit as lovely. It's within the waking distance to City Center but also close to a U-Ban station so you can get to anywhere in Koln within minutes. She's easy to reach and very communicative. She was away on work on the day of our arrival but found a way to get us the key so we were able to check in as soon as we arrived. We enjoyed our stay and recommended Julia's place to anyone visiting this lovely city.

Julia was a great host; welcoming, friendly and easy to get hold of if/when we had any questions, both pre-arrival and mid-stay. Julia's flat was as the photos on the listing suggest: a spacious living area, light and airy and well equipped. The neighbourhood was nice and quiet (except for the odd morning utilities worker, either collecting waste or clearing leaves!) with a great local bakery and park nearby. The flat is only a few minutes' walk from a U-Bahn station in one direction, and from a supermarket, the River Rhine (Rhein) and restaurants etc in the old town (Altstadt) in the other direction. We had a great time in Julia's flat - thank you for having us!

Clean apartment with a great atmosphere making the all difference. 7 minutes walking to the tramp and 10 minutes from supermarket. The apartment located in a quiet neighborhood with elevator. Julia was always available and willing to assist in any question and issue. For those on know to play, a great piano is available and if not, many books and music CD's are available as well. I fully recommend to spend a time at Julia!
