About this listing

In the heart of Cologne on the "Aachener Straße", the most popular street for restaurants and bars, you'll find this cozy industrial-design apartment hidden in a backyard. Furnished with much love for you, for a great time in Cologne!

The space

My cool and comfortable one bedroom apartment with true city feeling! It comfortably fits up to two guests and is best located in a quiet backyard in the heart of Cologne served by excellent public transport connections. It can host up to 2 people and is fully equipped with everything you need for your stay at Cologne.

The apartment is furnished with much love and a good eye for details. We chose the industrial-design for this apartment and tried on the same time to keep the apartment looks warm and cozy, as you can see on the pictures.

I chose instead of a normal bed to buy a sofa bed, so you're more flexibel to use the room as a living-room or a real bed-room. The sofa bed is of high quality and real comfortable, as we've been looking for a very long time until we found the right one. It takes seconds to change it to a bed and fits easily 2 people.

The building itself is located in the backyard of the most popular street for bars, clubs and restaurants called "Aachener Straße". During the day a small amount of people is using the backyard to get to a private personal studio but in the evening and weekends you can close the huge doors to the street and enjoy a beautiful backyard right in the heart of Cologne just for yourself.

Guest access

My home is your home. During your stay, my entire apartment is for your use.

Interaction with guests

I will do my best to make you feel home and comfortable. I constantly undertake a large effort in providing my guests with everything they need during their stay in Cologne. If anything extra arises or you have any question, I am one phone call away to help you out.

Other things to note

I have a very flexible check-in procedure. You can check-in after 13:00 on the arrival day and check-out time is at 11:00 on the departure day.

I should mention beforehand that the walls are a bit thin and therefore as we are located in the city, noises can reach the apartment. There is a restaurant located right next to the apartment which makes a bit of noise but it usually isn't loud and after 22:30pm it's totally quiet. It's nothing major but if you are a light sleeper, I might recommend you to either use the complimentary ear plugs or simply re-consider booking with us. Please do not think it is loud now, but I prefer to mention this before.

Arturs place was a little outside of the touristy parts which we liked so we could see what the city was really like. We were close to the tram and U line so everywhere was easy access. We did take it a few times to head near the river but walked to be river when it was nice out. The apartment was really clean and the sofa bed was comfy. We took advantage of the black out curtains the window has. There is a restaurant right next to the apartment that we could hear through the walls but they didn't open until closer to the afternoon so it didn't bother our sleep schedule. I would recommend this place!

If you want to know Köln, Artur place is the best option. Everything is around the corner! Located in the center of the cool neighborhood you feel like living in "little Berlin". All the bars and restaurants and stores are a few steps away. A bit noisy but, hey, you are in a very alive city! We had a little problem with Airbnb and he gets in contact with the main office and helped us to resolved it in a minute, even letting us get earlier to the apartment. A place to get back for sure!!

Located in a quiet backyard, but with a lot of restaurants, bars and cafes around which are only 1 minute walk away, you will find this small gem.we loved the loft style rooms. Artur was very pleasant to communicate with and everything went well.

The apartment it's nice designed, nice kitchen with fridge, electrical widow shutters. But there was some minuses that were problematic for me - The apartment was clean on the first sight but - the floor was a little bit dirty, the fresh bedding was just left on the chair (little dirty too) - so there was no hygiene. On the bedding I could see somone's HAIR... Which was ugly and not nice. The bedding is low quality though, sheet was so thin and barely fit the bed. The sofa is not so comfortable as owner wrote. Also the bathroom - the regulation of water temperature is terrrible - water is too hot or too cold so you spend all shower time trying to get perfect temperature... Additionally a water hose was broken. Contact with the owner - he didn't wrote to us after reservation, or after the day before when I message him - he answer when we were already on the train to Koln little bit streed if we still have where to sleep. The restaurant is behind the wall, it's closed after 22pm but sometimes they making noise to 2pm cleaning etc. Good things is that there is quiet and you can use widow shutters, not so bad design, place close to good restaurants. So if you're not a demanding person, it should be okay for you.

Dear Natalia, thank you for your feedback from your stay. First and foremost, I am super sorry to hear that you were unhappy with your experience at my apartment. I take complaints very seriously. I'm quite surprised about the bad cleaning, as I do take steps to ensure that the apartment is clean. I'm working with an professional cleaning service after each guest. The bedding are sent out to be professionally laundered in extremely hot water. The cleaning service also does a visual inspection of all the linens before they are used in the apartment. I'll make sure, that this won't happen again and I will refund you the cleaning fee back. For the noise during the night I apologize and will get in contact with the restaurant. As you said, the restaurant is closing around 22pm and some noise is usual until 23pm - but 2am is totally unusual. However, I'd love to welcome you back with a complimentary stay in my apartment, if you'll ever come back to Cologne. Please let me know if I can arrange that one day! Thanks again for your Feedback. Best, Artur
