Short stay overnight in Wiesbaden
My partner and I stayed one night in this beautiful, restored home. Loved the character, detail, history of this home. We drove into Wiesbaden with our rental car and were able to find free street parking just down the hill close by to the home. The directions the owner provided and the instructions on how to enter the home were spot on. A short time after we arrived, the owner stopped by to say hello and even offered us some delicious soup, which was very kind. The owner explained a little bit of the history of the home which was very fascinating and interesting to hear.
The home is quite spacious, lots of room to spread out. The kitchen was bright, lots of light, and had doors that opened into a small courtyard between the houses. We didn't use the kitchen for any cooking but if you chose to cook you will love the kitchen, lots of room and the appliances all looked fairly new. The kitchen floor even felt heated(not entirely sure if I was correct on that) but felt warm to the touch which was an added perk once the sun set and the house cooled-loved that! The television was easily to navigate and for a short time we enjoyed one of our favorite shows on Netflix. The upstairs bath and shower look to be fairly new and the shower in particular was very nice.
We would have stayed longer, but did not realize that the home was much further from the city center of Wiesbaden than we anticipated. Entirely our fault on that count since we had never been to Wiesbaden. We were looking to not use the car much while in Wiesbaden and walk or take busses or trains to and from. There were few restaurants or stores nearby the home. The owner did tell me in advance about needing a car, so that is our error. Just something to keep in mind, you would differently need to have a car to easily run errands to and from this house. There is a local bus line nearby, but I would recommend having a car to get to wherever you would need to go.
The next day we checked out and it occurred to us that we left one of our mobile phones in the home. The owners contacted me and arranged for someone to courier the mobile phone to us at our hotel in Frankfurt. That was incredibly kind and gracious of the owners to arrange this for us as we were returning home to the USA soon. We thank the owners for their hospitality, and their willingness to go the extra mile in retrieving our mobile phone. Overall, this was a charming, quiet home to stay in while traveling through Wiesbaden.
Yes, the floor in the kitchen is heated.
Beautifully restored 1728 timbered home.
Loved the home, the furnishings and the wonderful renovations to keep this historic home authentic. Lovely greeting from homeowner. We are headed back to stay there again this weekend!
Thank you so much from Alaska,
Anne, Larry & Sandy
Anne, Larry and Sandy have been awesome guests. We had long conversations about their home and the beauty of their landscape. They were interested in our views, modest, very sympathetic and in short really recommendable guests that will always be welcome again. And they wrote one of the best guest book entries yet. Highly appreciated.
Amazing historic home with great hosts.
Martin and Juliane as well as their sweet daughters were amazing hosts for our family. We have a 2 year old and a 4 month old and our stay was great.
Our hosts welcomed us as friends. Our kids played together, we watched the Euro tournament together, and shared a beer or two.
The house is authentic and immaculate. Martin and Juliane will inform all that there is a VERY strep staircase so if you are not able to climb this is not the place for you. In addition, you need to be careful with children going up and down.
The kitchen is very nice with big windows to a shared courtyard with your hosts. There is a half bathroom downstairs and a full bath with shower (no bathtub which is challenging with the baby). Both are very nice bathrooms.
A nice touch is that they have a nice big television with Amazon Fire Stick TV which gives a ton of content. The wifi was constant and fast too.
We explored Frankfort as well as the Rhine River and it's castles. Great trip hosted by wonderful people.
A Wonderful Experience
It was a delight to stay at this seriously old, beautifully renovated, property. Clearly no money was spared in carrying out the renovation. First class all the way. Bath and kitchen fixtures are top-of-the-line. Furnishings are comfortable and charming and everything is immaculate. Interesting decorative touches are everywhere (and note the bits of the old structure left exposed, especially the small spot on the kitchen wall with the two paint stripes that were so faithfully reproduced). The shower is large, bright, and the water pressure is amazing. There are more huge fluffy bath towels than one would ever need. Loved the coffee machine and the generous selection of specialty coffees. The beautifully refinished wood floors slant this way and that reminding you of the building's age and making you giggle, feeling like a drunken sailor. The really steep, narrow stairs to the upstairs bathroom and two bedrooms are definitely a challenge, but again, a fun reminder of the building's age; it would have been a real shame to replace them. Parking in the inner courtyard was also a bit of a challenge but certainly added to the authenticity of the experience staying at this property--and so nice to have our car off the narrow street. We did not meet Martin and his wife as they were on vacation but they kept in contact and answered emails immediately. Martin's mother-in-law was a great help when we had difficulty working the entrance code after dark (not enough light) and let us know if we needed anything we could just ring her door bell. The only negative? Our stay was too short. Highly recommended.
Old but yet modern. Nice place, nice people. Perfect place to stay - if you are ok with a steep stairway.
Thanks a lot. You were wonderful guests.
