|Minimum Stay||2 - 6 nights|
Apartment 2 has 2 bedrooms, a big bedroom with a double bed (queen size 160*200 cm) and a single bed (90 * 200 cm), and a 2nd bedroom with a bunk bed (2 mattresses 90 * 200 cm) and a queen size bed (140 * 200 cm). There is a living room with a big dining table for 6 people, a sofa, an armchair, a flat screen TV and BluRay player. There is also a fully equipped kitchen with oven and microwave.
Both apartments have a size of 52 qm. They are on the 4th floor of a 5 story multifamily residence with a nice view into the garden, a park and the nearby sports stadium.
The apartments are light and modern furnished.
Just outside the house is the tram stop 'Pohligstr.', served by line 12 which runs to Cologne city center every 10 min. A ride to 'Rudofplatz' for example takes less than 10 minutes.
Supermarkets, bakeries, butchers, banks, restaurants and pubs are nearby and can be reached in a few minutes by foot.
Six of us shared the flat for a weekend in August 2016. The flat is directly next to the Cologne Fortuna stadium in Cologne Zollstock (very good for football supporters) and is about 100 metres from the S-Bahn stop, which was really practical. We had flat number 1, which was clean and had everything you would expect from a weekend holiday rental. The only small drawback was its location on the fourth floor (no lift available), which was a problem for one of our ladies who is not too good on her feet. Otherwise fine and good as a base for discovering Cologne.
The apartment was very clean and nice. We were able to walk to a beautiful park near by and have dinner in a beer garden. We could easily walk to the grocery and get onto public transportation to take to the center of Cologne. We are a family of six from America and were very comfortable in this apartment. Thank you
Booking was excellent: the owner was very prompt and helpful. Full instructions provided, and everything was as promised. The check-in/check-out was both welcoming and efficient. The flat - up four flights of stairs - was very clean. Wifi, heating and kitchen equipment all worked perfectly. The flat was quiet despite its proximity to railway lines, although it might get noisy if there is a match at the next-door stadium! Easy to access all of Cologne using the tram system, and under 20 minutes' walk to the University. I would definitely return here and strongly recommend it.
Spotlessly clean and well equipped 2 bedroom apartment.
The owner and his family were super helpful from the booking stage through to departure, and we would recommend this apartment 100%.
2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and living area. Kitchen small but well equipped and totally fine for a short break.
Lidl and Real supermarkets 5-10 minutes walk, as were a few local shops, cafe, takeaway pizza. Tram station 1 minute walk away and getting into town very easy and quick once you got the hang of the different lines.
Would definitely stay here again if returning to Cologne.
One note of caution for the less able, the flat is on the 3rd floor and access is only by a staircase.... no lift. Fine for our group but worth mentioning if you are less able.
Thanks Arndt and family:) Happy New Year!
We stayed in this apartment for one night while we were in Köln. It was very spacious and well maintained. The apartment isn't in the city center, but th tram stop is steps away so it simple to get anywhere you want. The people renting the apartment are great to deal with and I would highly recommend this apartment.
We took our family to Cologne for our son's wedding so we were looking for an alternative to hotel rooms close to the Wolkenburg. The apartments were modern and clean as advertised. However, we did have to compromise some comfort. The weather was very hot during our stay. Air conditioning is not common in Cologne, but it would have been nice to at least have a couple of fans. The street noise is definitely an issue if you have to open the bedroom windows at night. The train isn't really as noisy as the truck and motorcycle traffic, which was extremely loud and active until the early am hours. I actually had to sleep on the couch in the living room one night because it was too hot to close the window and too noisy to leave it open. We rented both apartments for our group and what is not noted is that the two apartments are in two separate buildings! We realized that we would have to walk up four floors, but thought that both apartments were adjacent to one another. Not so. You have to go down four floors, go outside to the next building, and back up four floors to go between apartments. If not for these issues, we would have really enjoyed staying in these apartments. They are well equipped. The owner does provide good customer service. If you are looking for good, clean, modern economical alternative to hotel rooms and it is not during the hot summer days, I would recommend these apartments. To the owner, I would recommend to purchase a few fans for summertime rentals. It would have made a huge difference in our comfort.
Cologne (Köln) is like a three-dimensional textbook on history and architecture. Drifting about town you will stumble upon an ancient Roman wall, medieval churches galore, nondescript postwar buildings and avant-garde museums and concert halls. Germany's forth-largest city, founded by the Romans in 38 BC, has a long list of sightseeing attractions, led by its famous Dom whose filigree twin spires dominate the impressive Altstadt skyline. The Altstadt is also the best place to sample Kölsch, the refreshing local brew, in beer halls rivalling those in Bavaria in rollicking intensity. Cologne has numerous museums - art to chocolate to sport - among hundreds of art galleries to explore or concerts to attend.
