My partner and I stayed in the “Bille-Suite” for five nights in May. We wanted to stay in a residential neighborhood that had easy access to public transportation and Hamburg center. Eppendorf is a beautiful neighborhood with lovely Art-Nouveau buildings and many shops, boutiques, restaurants, and parks within walking distance.
Frau Simon and her husband are fantastic hosts—personal service plus—and they have thought of everything to make one’s stay comfortable. The flat itself is just amazing: a wonderful eat-in kitchen that is well equipped, with cooking basics including spices (a rare and greatly appreciated amenity in a rental flat), oils, and vinegar. The living room is a comfortable place to relax and has a wood-burning stove and a small balcony. Wi-Fi and entertainment options are great. The bed is very comfortable. A super convenience factor is being able to purchase (reasonable, better than supermarket, prices) a variety of beverages in the basement. The flat was spotless. We felt instantly at home.
Frau Simon provides sightseeing and restaurant recommendations. Pay attention: the recommendations are spot on.
This is a first-class rental property. We found nothing lacking, and have seldom encountered such high-quality and superb service in a rental property. We were so happy we opted to stay in this flat rather than a hotel while we were in Hamburg. We were not happy to leave! We will gladly visit Hamburg again, but only if the “Bille-Suite” is available. If you are looking for a 1-bedroom flat in Eppendorf, look no further.
Chocolate lovers take note: one of Hamburg’s best (some say the best) chocolatier is Schokovida, Hegestraße 33, within walking distance of the “Bille-Suite.”
