Wonderful apartment for a small family.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the apartment for three nights over the New Year's break. Our group was a family with a toddler and a baby, plus an extended family member who slept on the comfortable sofa in the living room.

Key pointers. This property is a really good value. I can't believe that the owners are not charging more for it.

The kitchen is well equipped for most cooking requirements unless you are doing something super fancy. Master bedroom bed is very comfortable and large enough to accommodate two adults and two small children. The living room is quite spacious to allow people to enjoy different activities within the same space.

Heating for the winter months is really great... especially the bathroom that has in-floor heating.

The owner communicated with us in German via the VRBO website, but speaks quite good English. Other than that, Gotha is actually a very scenic town that is worth exploring for a few days.

The only potential problem that some less abled people might encounter is the steep staircase to the first floor apartment if they have large luggage to carry... we had several large suitcases weighing about 25kg each and it wasn't a problem for us.

Overall... we have rented more than 20 times from Airbnb and VRBO and this is one of the best properties that we have come across. We will definitely try to return.

Eine sehr nette Gastgeberin. Den Schlossgarten mit diversen Sitzplätzen darf man mitbenutzen. Wir haben uns sehr Wohlgefühlt. Herzlichen Dank dafür.

Wir waren im August 2017 zu Gast in diesem wunderbaren kleinen "Schloss". Mitten in Gotha fanden wir eine Oase der Ruhe, in einem wirklich schönen Ambiente. In allem was den Schlossgarten und die Ferienwohnung ausmachte, spürte man die feine Hand von Fau Balling, der Vermieterin. Zudem ist sie eine ganz herzlich und offene Frau, die uns mit einem freundlichen Lachen empfing und eine sehr warmherzige Kommunikation pflegte. Es war jeden Abend schön wieder ins Schlösschen zurück zu kehren, nach all den tollen Ausflügen, die man ringsum auch mit Kindern machen kann. Wir können diesen "kleinen Traum im Irgendwo" absolut empfehlen und kommen gerne wieder, sollten wir mal wieder in der Nähe sein.

Eine stilvolle und sehr erholsame Bleibe!

  • 4 of 5

Schloss Mönchshof ist ein Kleinod am Rande der Residenzstadt Gotha. Das sympathische Besitzerehepaar investiert sehr viel Zeit und Aufwand in das Schloss und den Park, was auch dem Besucher zugute kommt. Nett und aufgeschlossen, war der Urlaub ein wohltuendes Erlebnis. Wir können die Ferienwohnung uneingeschränkt empfehlen.

Erwartungen wurden übertroffen

  • 4 of 5

Es war ein einzigartiges Erlebnis hier Urlaub machen zu können. Das Schloss liegt mitten in einer wunderschönen Parkanlage, wo man abgeschirmt von der Außenwelt sich wunderbar erholen kann. Ganz in der Nähe liegt die Stadt Erfurt, eine sehr saubere und schöne Stadt mit vielen historischen Bauwerken. Die Stadt ist eines Besuches wert (allerdings ist es ratsam mit der Bahn hinzufahren um den Stadtverkehr und die Parkplatzsuche zu entgehen). Beliebte Ausflugsziele sind die Wartburg, Kutschenfahrten sowie verschiedene Schlösser und Burgruinen.

Das Ehepaar Balling ist sehr freundlich und bringt den Feriengästen großes Vertrauen entgegen. Wir wurden sehr herzlich aufgenommen. Auch die Wohnung ist sehr schön und gemütlich.

(Ps. Einen Wunsch hätten wir noch. Vielleicht könnte man eine Tiefkühl-Schublade man mit in den Kühlschrank einbauen um Tiefkühlkost, gerade im Sommer, länger lagern zu können.)

Alles in allem kommen wir sehr gerne wieder wenn sich die Möglichkeit ergibt.

Bis denn...

Grüße aus Espelkamp

The castle is located in the monk park by the lake with the possibility to eat breakfast right on the shore. Before the house is a very well-kept park, which can also be used.

Despite their closeness to the city, the residential area can be described as very quiet.

Gotha is the city's museums. Of particular note here are the Ducal Museum and

the research library. Even castle peace stone with the casemates annually attracts many thousands of visitors.

In the first week of January is always held the Biathlon World Cup in Oberhof. The venue can be reached by car in 30 minutes. Weimar, Erfurt and Eisenach are world-famous cities all of which can be approached in a very short time.
