Simple, nice, and sunny flat in Kalk, close to the Trade Fair (Kölnmesse Deutz).

The space

The flat has two rooms. Living room has a kitchen corner, meaning that the living room is a dining room at the same time.

Please, consider that there is no bed in the flat and the mattresses are lying on the floor without any duckboard.

Concerning the capacity of the flat. I opened it for up to four people, as it is often happens that you travel with a group of friends. We wanted to make it affordable for such groups to rent a nice place together. There are two proper single mattresses in the bedroom. The mattresses are quite wide though, and could be suitable for two people to sleep together (good for couples, tested personally :). Another two places to sleep would be the couch in the living room and an air mattress you can put wherever you want.
p.s. If you are a family, and have three kids with you, don't hesitate to write us, we will arrange something ;)

Guest access

We live in this flat, so all our stuff stays in there. We can make some space in the wardrobe free for you. You will be able to use all the kitchen devices (we have a juicer!).

Interaction with guests

We rent the flat out usually when we are leaving, so we most probably won't be able to spend time with you. We are happy to answer your questions online, if you have any. We can tell what to visit in Cologne.
However, sometimes it can happen that we can welcome you personally and even show you some interesting places around Cologne.

Other things to note

The washing machine is leaking sometimes. It is normal, the machine is quite old, but still works well. Please, just dry up the floor with a cloth if it happens. And twist faucet behind it till the end (block the water).

We are away for the weekend!

1. If you are four people!!! Two of you will have to share a mattress, which is not a double mattress, or someone has to sleep on a camping matt on the floor, so you have to agree to that before you book. Otherwise, don't book this flat! Look for a place with four beds/mattresses.

2. To get the key you have to do some "geo-cashing", it's easy, no worries.

3. Please, keep the flat clean.

4. There is no real bed, the mattresses are lying on the floor. They are very comfortable though, like normal mattresses. We like the possibility to put them to the wall and have the whole space of the bedroom for doing yoga.

5. Please, let me know if you need a towel!

6. Parking nearby might be hard in the evening and on weekends. You might need to drive around a bit. Though, parking is for free here!

My friends and I loved staying at Monkey Factory! The price was amazing for a clean, private, and convenient overnight option. The location was bit far from the central part of Köln, but public transport is within reasonable walking distance. Also, Inga (and her partner) were very nice and helpful to us as travelers, which enhanced our city experience.

It´s been a pleasant stay at Ingas place. The flat is cozy, clean and had necessities we needed; the neighbourhood is friendly. Public transport is a breeze, the bus station less than 2 min walk.

The apartment was nice and matched the description. The neighbourhood was calm just a short walk to any communications we needed to get around. Very good value for the money.

The flat was clean and had everything one might need. The surrounding is calm, which we enjoyed a lot. The bus stop is basically just around the corner and it is only a short walk to the U-Bahn station. Even though we did not meet Inga, she was very nice and responsive. Great value for money. Definitely recommend it!

I am studying Media Informatics (master) in university of applied science in Cologne. It is a full time program, so I don't have time for long term trips for the next couple of years. However, we plan to make some short term trips and develop our "Travelling Monkeys" project. Check it out in social networks and our blog about Travelling Monkeys Bimbino and Bambina (search engines to help you ;)
