Great location, spacious apartment, loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My spouse and I stayed in the 2 bedroom unit in this 3 story building for one week (October 4-11th, 2015). Building is quiet, secure and in a safe area close to grocery stores, public transit and a 10 minute walk from restaurants. We had a car rental so the free parking outside the building was most convenient. Owners Heather & Frank were wonderful & helpful at all times. The apartment has everything you need, VERY comfortable beds, soft linens, towels and a great equipped kitchen, well priced. We LOVED it and would definitely stay here again.

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have spent several weeks at this apartment. The apartment has all that you would need as if you were at home. The bedroom is spacious, with a comfortable king size bed and plenty of room for a crib for our baby. The living room was very comfortable with a television, DVD player and a nice music player. The kitchen had everything that we needed and was a nice alternative to cook dinner rather than going out and the dining room was perfect.

This apartment is so close to the city center and several different tram, bus, and the subway that it makes going anywhere in Leipzig fairly easy. All in all, this apartment is really ideal and we will definitely stay here when we're next in Leupzig.

Very Spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was the perfect choice. It is located on a quiet street. The apartment is huge with lots of space for relaxing, cooking, eating. It was clean and well maintained. The owners were very welcoming. Only down side for some people might be that it is on the 3rd floor, with no lift. If in Leipzig again, I would stay here.

Wonderful place to stay in Leipzig

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Leipzig in this vacation rental. We stayed for almost a month, but it felt like home from the moment we moved in. The kitchen was very nicely equipped and there were plenty of linens provided. The flat had nice space and was in a great location - close to everything, but not so close that it was loud. Thank you for a wonderful trip!

Owner's Response: I am happy that this family enjoyed their stay in our Leipzig rental. We have tried to think of what amenities we would like were we looking for a vacation rental and have prepared the apartment to that end.

sehr schöne Ferienwohnung!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren nun schon zum zweiten Mal in dieser wirklich schönen Ferienwohnung. Das Haus ist bezaubernd, die Gegend ruhig, die Wohnung für uns ideal gelegen (wir waren beruflich in Leipzig) und die Vermieter sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit.

Es ist auch wirklich alles in der FeWo vorhanden, was man im Alltag gebrauchen kann und das in sehr gutem Zustand.

Sehr zu empfehlen!

Within 5 minutes of city center shopping and railway station promenade mall. Leipzig is a city of music and culture. From this rental it's an easy walk to Thomas Church (think Bach) with free performances of the Thomaner Boy's Choir, Church of the Nikolai (the origin of the freedom demonstrations which helped bring down the 'wall' in 1989), the Art museum, the world class Opera, and Gewandhaus concert hall, the new Art Museum. The rental is close to a major streetcar stop with easy connections to the Battle of the Nations monument, the Schiller house, the Messe (trade fair) grounds, the airport and the sports arena. Bicycle paths nearby lead to a park with miles of biking or walking trails, and lakes and rivers for water activities. An indoor swimming pool is within a five minute walk. Excellent restaurants are plentiful. Some only a short walk from the rental.

Notes:
The apartment is on the third floor (American). There is a small freight elevator for suitcases etc. The beauty of this rental is the restoration of the original decor. The floors have all been sanded and finished with natural ecologically friendly oil. Where possible, original timbers have been uncovered and oiled. The ambiance is a tasteful melding of old and new.
