Wonderful! 4.8/5 -
(10 traveler reviews)

bright apartment in the lively, cultural city of Mainz
average rating of 4.8 based on 10 reviews


  • 5 of 5

The apartment, on the fourth floor (with lift) was spotlessly clean and had everything you need for cooking at home, which we like to do. There's a washer, a modern shower but no dishwasher, which was not an issue. We especially loved the terrace overlooking the tree-lined street. The apartment is in a quieter part of Mainz but still within 10 minutes' walk of the station, the old town and the river, which has lovely promenades for walking and sitting.

You can take a day-long or half-day cruise up the Rhine to Boppard from the town center.

Mainz is what I call a perfect size town: plenty to do, easily walkable, lots of restaurants and shops yet without major motorways running through.

From the station you can travel extensively.

Frau Cezanne was lovely and very helpful, bringing fresh towels halfway through our 8-day stay.

The best!

  • 5 of 5

What can we not say about this wonderful apartment. Mr Eich and Frau Cezanne were unbelievable. So helpful and courteous and Cezanne with her delightful sense of humour which we could actually understand!. The apartment is just as in the photos and has to be the best we have ever stayed in in Europe. So close to everything and all in walking distance. Supermarkets and restaurants all nearby. Mainz is a small town but for the week we were there had plenty to do. In fact so much to do that we didn't even get into Frankfurt which was on our list. Only thing that was a small problem was the hand-held shower in the bath, but believe this is being fixed. Also no wifi, but just around the corner is a little shop where you could log in for 1 euro an hour..... no problem. We would certainly recommend the apartment to all our friends. Just hope that one day we will be able to get back there was so relaxing.

Fantastic Apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed at the apartment from March 31st thru April 4th and had a wonderful time. The apartment was very spacious and comfortable and had everything you needed.

The location was ideal and was within walking distance to the center and also grocery shopping. Frau Cezanne was very charming and even though we did not speak German, we were able to communicate with her and also Hans Peter was also available to answer any of our questions.

I would definitely recommend this apartment as the location was perfect.

Maggie and Chris thank you

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful apartment to stay in - spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable with everything you need. It was spacious and bright with two lovely balconies on which to enjoy a glass of wine whilst admiring the view and the trees (the flat is at the top of the 4 storey block of flats and has a lift if needed). It was ideal for my husband and I as we drove to Mainz and could park the car nearby for free. It is a 10 minute walk to the centre of Mainz. A supermarket is just around the corner. Frau Cezanne, who looked after us was extremely kind and helpful. We couldn't think of a better place to stay in Mainz and we would definitely return..

Old fashioned but clinically clean

  • 3 of 5

Tja. Städtische Vermietung geht anders. Schon beim Anruf vorher mussten wir erfahren, dass eine Anreise nach 21 Uhr definitiv undenkbar ist, weil das Schlafenszeit ist. Und dass natürlich der Schlüssel keinesfalls irgendwo deponiert werden kann. Und dass es auch keinen Zahlentresor gibt. Das gleiche dann noch mal, als wir um kurz nach elf eintrafen...

Die Wohnung selbst ist blitzblank, es ist alles da, was man braucht, bis zur Mikrowelle - bis auf eine Spülmaschine. Omas Möbel stehen noch drin, einschließlich Blumenbänkchen im Schlafzimmer. Wer es besonders mag, findet Großvaters Taschenuhr aus dem 19. Jhdt. im Wohnzimmer an der Wand, sicherlich sehr wertvoll; ebenso wie Großmutters Silberbesteck...

Wir werden nächstes Mal ein Hotel nehmen.

Liebevoll eingerichtete Fewo in guter Lage

  • 5 of 5

Die Fewo bietet alles, was man für einen entspannten Urlaub/Aufenthalt benötigt. Das Schlafzimmer bietet ein Doppelbett, im Wohnzimmer ist bei Bedarf eine Schlafcouch verfügbar. Die Küche bietet alle benötigten Utensilien nebst einer Essecke. Alles in Allem ein rundum gelungenes Arrangement ... nur ca. 300m vom Rheinufer entfernt. (Anm: zwar 6. Etage, aber Lift vorhanden ... Parken nur an der Straße, aber nach 19 Uhr problemlos möglich)
