Four of us comfortably stayed in this large apartment located in the upper half of the hosts home. The apartment quickly felt like home as it is located on a quiet residential street in a suburb of Hamburg. The apartment has a nice kitchen where were cooked plenty of meals...fridge, microwave, stovetop burners and lots of new and very clean cooking pots, bowls, etc made it easy. The dishwasher made clean up easy. The kitchen also has a very nice clothes washer in it which we used numerous times during our stay. We dried our clothes on the spacious and private backyard outdoor patio area....it was also a great place to simply hang out and enjoy the dense forests landscape around Hamburg. The apartment had a single separate bedroom that easily slept 2 with plenty of extra space and the other sleeping area was connected to the living room. It also easily slept 2 people. The living room had a connected dining room where we shared meals although the kitchen also has a small table where 1 or 2 people could easily sit to eat.
Our host, Heike, was the perfect host. She communicated clearly prior to the trip and met us upon arrival. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon when all of the local grocery stores had already closed for the day and Heike ensured that we had some nourishment to last until the morning and did so with the unending positive energy of your favorite grandmother! Anytime we needed anything, Heike, who owns the house and lives on the lower floor, was available. She even thought ahead and left items such as maps of the area, recommendations for activities and even salt and pepper outside the secure door to our apartment, just in case we needed them. She was the perfect host.
If we ever find ourselves in Hamburg again and needed to rent an apartment for an extended stay or just for a few days, we would not hesitate to stay again at this wonderful apartment.
