I offer you a private room in my apartment, which is build in 1945 and has high ceilings and nice characteristic features. Located in city center, though in a quiet street. Literally minutes walking distance from station, theater, museums, shops, restaurants and bars. Perfect spot to enjoin the city buzz without the need of bike or public transport and nightlife noise.
It's a private room in an apartment on the first floor. The room is separated from the living room with a folding door. It's not very spacious but has two large single beds (90cm by 2m), a side table which can also be used to work from and 2 poufs. If privacy is desired I can add a kettle in the room for own coffee/tea. Though the kitchen is accessible 24-7 for coffee/tea and use of toaster and fridge (no cooking allowed).
The bathroom is shared with the owner. Living room, kitchen and hallway are open plan and shared with the owner. Kitchen access allowed for coffee and tea and use of fridge, prepping of breakfast/lunch, cold dishes. Microwave present and available to heat up food (in proper container). Toaster available upon request. No cooking possible (stove and oven) due to my food allergies. Living room and tv access only allowed when I'm not present. If I'm home, tv and couch are off limits. Further there is a small balcony which you can use.
Interaction with guests
I will be welcoming the guests in person. Arrival times are flexible to the guests schedule. I want to make your stay as comfortable as possible and can assist on any questions about Groningen and the area, what to see, where to go. Use of public transport, shops, restaurants, events.
Other things to note
I own a cat. Hes an 11 year old Cyprus. He's very "chatty" and will welcome you with lots of meowing. Further he can be bit shy and will probably be either outside or chillaxing on the couch. He will not bother you during your stay and will be in my room at night.
I keep a clean household due to my asthma. I cannot except any smoking in or around the house. I expect you to be tidy too and clean up after yourself. Dishes washed and no hair in sink or shower. The house is also suitable for people who have allergies.
Due to local laws, tourist tax is imposed. E2,30 p.p.p.n. is to be paid in cash on arrival.
No smoking in or around the house
No shoes inside
Keep the area clean and tidy
Keep bathroom clean (no hairs in sink)
