The duplex apartment is located in the popular Friesenviertel neighborhood in the city center but still quiet and the ideal base to explore the city. Everything you may need is very close by or around the corner.

I am very flexible with check-in and check-out times, so simply tell me what times suit you best and we will work out a solution.

Cologne central station (Köln HBF): 3min with metro line 5 or 7€ by taxi
Cologne trade fair (Koelnmesse): 8min with metro line 1 or 15€ by taxi

The space

The apartment has underfloor heating, is completely open-plan designed and very bright due to the large window façades.

There are three Hi-Fi audio systems with wireless sound (via AirPlay Apple AirPort Express) so you can listen to music in fantastic quality everywhere. Wi-Fi & DSL flat-rate are there, too.

Around the corner is everything you might wish for, shopping and drug stores, clubs, restaurants, bars, cafes, REWE supermarket (open until 12pm), etc.

In the sleeping room is a queen size bed for two people (140x200cm). Optionally, one person can sleep on the very big couch (280x235cm). The Bedroom faces the peaceful courtyard, so you can sleep with the windows open.

The kitchen is fully equipped with stove, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, rice cooker, espresso machine, blender, indoor barbecue grill, etc.

I have a 60" Full HD Plasma TV which can be controlled via HDMI and Apple Mini DisplayPort connectors. However, there is no television broadcasting.

Guest access

The whole flat is all your's and you may use everything you would offer your guests in your own home, too.

It is really important to me, that you feel at home. Whether you use towels, shampoo, milk, spices, eggs, oil, butter, tea, coffee or candles, take a drink from my minibar, use hangers and my wardrobe to hang your clothes up, etc. – please make yourself comfortable.

Since I don't charge a cleaning fee, I expect my guests to treat my home as if it is their own and to leave it clean and tidy so I feel at home too, when I come back :)

Till's place was exactly as advertised, we found it clean and comfortable. It was located close to transport links into the main tourist areas of the city and we were also able to walk to many of them within 20 mins. It was a great location for us to explore the Christmas markets. Till was an excellent host and able to accommodate our request for a late night check in. We had a fantastic stay and felt at home.

We really enjoyed our stay at Till's apartment which is a lovely space to take a break from exploring the city. Location is great, easy to get into the Altstadt and right by the Belgian quarter which is a great neighbourhood for drinks, dinner, brunch and shopping! Especially liked Aachener Str for drinks in the evening. Also nearby are a couple of Brauhauses that we enjoyed visiting: Brauerei Paffgen on friesenstrasse and Brauhaus Putz on Engelbertstrasse. Till was great to deal with when booking our stay - always quick to reply to questions and very helpful with advice on where to park.

Best flat ever! My husband and I stayed at Till's amazing loft when we visited Cologne during a trade fair. We absolutely LOVED the apartment: it is beautiful, roomy, tidy with great furniture and yet homy and cozy. Till was a great host: he met us at the flat and explained everything to us and left us lovely gifts as well as made available his supplies of coffee and other food. The location of the flat is perfect: in the middle of a 'trendy' neighbourhood with bars, restaurants and boutiques but in a quiet spot. Wish we had more time to explore the area! I hope we will be back again to stay at Till's as it is the perfect place. I totally recommend it! Emilia

When I arrived the hot water was not working in the unit for a couple of days, but with patience, the building maintenance handled the problem. Till was great and available to listen to my requests for advice and help. Wasn't much he could do, but let me know the status of the repairs. He has a well decorated unit and everything was very good other that this mishap that was not his fault. The location is central, near many bars and restaurants so there's lots and lots of night activity, especially on weekends. Grocery store and banks are nearby.
