Fofftein: Spacious 2,5 room apartment in the Old City of Bremerhaven
average rating of 4.857143 based on 16 reviews

Ferienwohnung "Fofftein" is a wonderful apt.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was exactly as pictured and described. It was very clean, tastefully modern and comfortable for our 5 day stay. The owners were welcoming, understanding about our jet lag and lack of German language skills. They prepared a guest binder with a Stadtplan city map, brochures of area attractions and their own recommendations about nearby restaurants and stores. We used a car, but could've easily bused or biked to the Mitte area. Local bakeries and grocery stores provided all we needed to cook meals in the well-equipped galley-style kitchen. The owners provided all cooking utensils and spices for use and provided every essential for a comfy stay! After a day in the downtown area at the various attractions, we could relax and enjoy a glass of complimentary wine while watching German TV or videos. The rear balcony was an ideal spot to sit, talk and plan our next day. We spent our visit at the Weser beachfront enjoying a concert, a harbor boat ride, touring the Historiches Museum Bremerhaven, the Deutsches Auswanderer Haus, the Havenwelten and shopping at the Columbus Center. I had lived in Lederheide and the downtown areas for 3 years in the mid- 1980's and visited my prior homes. I saw that Bremerhaven has since transformed itself into a "must see" destination with many improvements. Yet it felt like coming home to say "Moin" once again to the friendly people of the North. I suggest others go to Helgoland for the day, a memorable trip. We greatly appreciate the great service from the owners and strongly recommend this property to all visitors to Bremerhaven, Germany. Tchuss, Bremerhaven! Vielen Dank! We hope to return again soon!

Der Aufenthalt in Bremerhaven hat uns gut gefallen.

  • 4 of 5

Die Kommunikation im Vorfeld mit den Vermietern war gut, die Übergabe des Schlüssels verlief reibungslos.

Die Wohnung ist ruhig, mit einem Blick für Details eingerichtet, sauber und sehr gut ausgestattet. Der Balkon ermöglicht, bei entsprechenden Temperaturen auch gemütlich draußen zu sitzen.

Die Wohnung ist auch für einen Aufenthalt mit Kindern gut geeignet. Da sie im oberen Stock liegt, sind allerdings einige Treppen zu überwinden - für Personen ohne Einschränkungen ist das problemlos möglich. Das Rotlichtviertel beginnt an der nächsten Straßenecke, es ist aber (z.B. mit jüngeren Kindern) gut möglich, die Wohnung aus der anderen Richtung zu erreichen, um die Damen in den Fenstern zu vermeiden.

Die Nelly-Sachs-Straße selber ist eine ruhige Wohnstrasse. Der Blick aus dem Wohnzimmerfenster bzw. vom Balkon ist dank einiger großer Bäume erfreulich grün.

Bushaltestellen befinden sich an der nahegelegenen Hafenstraße, dort gibt es auch Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sowie mehrere Bäckereien. Mit dem Bus ist die Innenstadt (Bürger, Havenwelten mit Museen) und auch der Bahnhof gut zu erreichen. Es ist sinnvoll, Zehnerkarten zu erwerben, da diese deutlich günstiger sind.

Und hat der Aufenthalt gut gefallen, wir kommen gerne wieder.

Da passt alles zusammen

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben für ein langes Wochenende eine Bleibe in Bremerhaven gesucht und mit "Fofftein" eine sehr gute Wahl getroffen. Die Wohnung bietet alles, was man benötigt (und noch manches mehr). Vieles ist von der Wohnung zu Fuß erreichbar (alternativ gibt es eine Bushaltestelle 'direkt' vor der Tür).

Kontakt und Übergabe haben unkompliziert funktioniert. Empfehlenswert!

Das Domizil war sauber und ordentlich. Es war alles für einen erholsamen Aufenthalt vorhanden. Die Begrüssung war herzlich und aufschlussreich. Wir haben viele gute Tipps erhalten und konnten diese auch umsetzen.

Alles super!

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung ist sauber, gemütlich und mit wirklich allem ausgestattet, was man braucht. Auch für Kleinkinder ist alles da, inklusive Wickeltisch.

Die Straße ist ruhig (auch wenn in der Nähe ein paar Rotlichtdamen rumlaufen) und man ist nicht weit entfernt von den Touristenattraktionen.

Der Kontakt zur Vermieterin war schnell und unkompliziert – alles super! :)
