Ideal Comfort among the trees
This apartment is even better than it appears in its listing photos: the furnishings attractive and well chosen, very fully equipped kitchens, plenty of room for four adults to spread out for a month, more storage space than anyone could possibly need. The top floor location makes the apartment very light and airy. Having both an in-house computer and Wifi (WLAN in German parlance) was a definite plus. This is a very tree-filled neighborhood with virtually no traffic sounds to disturb one, and French doors in dining room and both bedrooms yield great views out among the tree tops.
The immediate neighborhood within two blocks contains all the necessities for daily living: a somewhat cramped, but fully stocked grocery, an excellent bakery-conditorei for fresh breads and pastries, a pharmacy, a drug store, a news stand which also is a dry cleaning outpost. Best of all, we never had a bad meal at any of the neighborhood restaurants--and at prices often substantially less than can be found in the city center tourist areas. Four good Italian restaurants, a typical Bavarian one and a new outpost featuring Georgian cooking by natives of that region were all worthwhile--varied, tasty menus and friendly servers in pleasant atmospheres. As always in German restaurants, one may linger over drinks or coffee as long as one likes. No pressure to clear the way for other customers.
Transportation to the city center works extremely well from this location. Two bus routes (service every five minutes) stop only one and a half blocks from the apartment door, and an S-Bahn train stop two easy blocks away has service to the city center every ten minutes or so. We bought weekly passes for the Innenraum (Inner City) which easily covered all the tourist points of interest and gave us unlimited flexibility to travel without having to decipher the admittedly complex fare system in detail. Highly recommended.
The apartment was immaculate when we arrived, and both Ines and Sven, our contacts, were prompt and pleasant in assisting us when needed. The entire process of beginning and ending the rental could not have gone more smoothly.
All four of us recommend this rental highly. We look forward, in fact, to a return visit in the near future.
