I would highly recommend this apartment for families/travelers looking for a quiet, well-maintained place of stay with great amenities (kitchen fully fitted), 3 minute access to subway station (and 15 minutes from there to Koln Hbf), safety and affordability. The owner Elke is a great host and responds very promptly when contacted by email/phone (we were international). Our stay was eminently memorable and many thanks to Elke for making it so.

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

A week in this apartment was not long enough. It is a great apartment, well located and furnished very nicely. Nearby parking was no problem and all and you can use the tram at the end of the block quiet easily. Our only regret is that we could not take this apartment along with us to other cities. It was truly a great apartment and the owners were very helpful and friendly. Our New Year's Eve was a blast with Elke's son and friends.

Comfy warm apartment - a real home from home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week here. It is a great apartment - well furnished with absolutely everything you could need. The kitchen and bathroom were both shiny and clean and there was plenty of space to spread out (we have a 3 year old). The apartment is easy to find from the ring road and there is free parking outside. Local public transport is fantastic. The tram is 2 minutes' walk away and there are trams every 10 mins or so. It whisks you straight into the centre of Cologne in 10 minutes which means this location is so convenient for exploring all the sights. There is also a great bakery a minute's walk away where you will find a selection of bread and cake. I would definitely recommend this apartment for anyone wishing to discover Cologne.

We loved staying here, very easy to get to with the tram stop being only a couple of minutes walk away. Lovely big apartment, comfy beds and internet was great - can definitely spend some time just relaxing around the apartment (we needed it!) but easy to hop on the train to the centre. Koln is a lovely city, the cathedral is just amazing. We also went to Phantasialand, easy to get to by train and a shuttle bus. We hired a car for one day too to drive to Toverland in the Netherlands, about an hour and half away (we love rollercoasters!). We spent a lot of time in and around the city too though, if you want to visit Koln definitely stay here, it's a real home from home! Thank you very much Elke :)

Welcoming Apartment

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this apartment with my wife and 3 daughters Ages 6, 3 and 3 months for 4 nights the apartment is very clean, cozy, outstanding deco it is very welcoming and didn’t feel like we were in a rented apartment it was very homely 15 minutes from the city centre. Elke was very sweet and welcoming she gave all the local information of shops and sites to see. She drove me to the local halal shop when I arrived and she was very helpful. The apartment was located in a in a quiet residential area 5 minute walk to the metro. We and the kids loved very minute of our stay the kids wouldn’t wait to get back to the apartment after touring all day. We would recommend to anyone who wants to stay in an excellent apartment.

Clean, cozy apartment, close to the city centre

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this apartment with my wife and 17 year old daughter from June 6-11, 2010. Located in a quiet residential area of Cologne, the apartment is very clean, cozy, tastefully done and just 12-15 minutes from the city centre. Elke and her husband Reza stay in the first floor of the same house and both were extremely warm and courteous. We arrived late in the evening on the 6th, and the neighbourhood shops had closed by then. Elke offered us food for the night and the next day before we stepped out of the house provided us with the map of the city and the public transport system. We loved every minute of our stay in this apartment and recommend it highly to anyone who wants to stay in a peaceful and well connected locality.
