- Comfortable seating and dining: here you can eat comfortably at the table and drink - whether it is a breakfast in the sunshine (thanks to the lovely views through the double windows), a cozy dinner or a sitting together for a Kölsch (original cologne beer) or a glass of wine .

- The sleeping area : here there is now a new, very comfortable double bed for you, of course freshly made , with 2 pillows and blankets. Flat-screen TV and good music system (both with AUX cable for PC or mobile connection) ensure comfort. Full length mirror and storage space for personal clothing and other items (until 15.12 . Compact shelves, from 16.12. including a small wardrobe) .

- Small storage room: here I keep my personal stuff (to free up the rest of the apartment, so you have enough space ) , on request I am happy to leave the storage room unlocked, so you can store your bags /cases in there.

- Bathroom: It's small, but nice, modern and equipped with a hairdryer, flat heater , fresh towels and a good shower.

- Wireless Internet is of course included as well

I really enjoy living here and I am very happy to personally give you tips and recommendations on and off the usual tourist paths, there is something for every taste :)

Especially during the Christmas season, Cologne is worth a visit: A total of seven different Christmas markets are awaiting your visit and invite you to an atmospheric strolling and browsing and of course offer good food and hot drinks - and not just on weekends!
In the apartment you will find a multi-language guide to the Christmas markets, so you can choose your favorites to visit. All markets are quite close and easy to reach from the apartment (" Märchen Markt/Fairytale market " Rudolf Platz 4 min walk ; " Christmas Avenue " Schaafenstraße 2 min walk, “Markt der Engel/Market of Angels" , Neumarkt , 10 min walk or 5 min by metro" Christmas Market at Cologne Cathedral " , 11 min by metro "Heimat der Heinzel” Heumarkt - 7 min by metro) and many more.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Anna is a very friendly and flexible host and the apartment is tidy, calm and well located. There are many lovely cafés, restaurants and shops in a walking distance, yet the connections with public transportation are also excellent. Really enjoyed our stay!

  • We really enjoyed our stay in Cologne at Anna's apartment. Everything was just as advertised and Anna could not have been more helpful in responding to my enquiries and providing useful information. The bright, modern studio apartment is perfect for a short city trip and we had everything that we required, including excellent wifi and a handy supply of tea! It is very well situated for the centre of Cologne, nightlife, public transport and numerous shops and supermarkets just 5 minutes away.
    Cologne is a great, lively city but seems to retain quite a strong neighbourhood feel. It is worth looking out for all the quirky bars and shops around Ehrenfeld, Friesen Platz etc, plus a couple of nice bar/restaurants nearby on the corner of Rathenau Platz.
    We would highly recommend!
    Thank you Anna for helping to make a great trip!

  • Anna's apartment is clean & tidy, very modern. It's conveniently located within walking distance of shops, restaurants, bars and plenty of public transport for attractions that are a little further afield. The apartment is the perfect size for 2 people with decent cooking facilities if you don't want to eat out.
    Only complaint would be that the blinds let a lot of light in, so it's never really dark in the apartment, but otherwise, a fantastic stay.

    Die Kommunikation sowie die Schlüsselübergabe verliefen reibungslos und Anna hat uns schon im Vorfeld gute Café-/Restaurant-Tipps fürs Belgische Viertel gegeben.

Hihi :) Ich freu mich jetzt hier angemeldet zu sein, denn ich habe total Lust nette Menschen kennen zulernen und fremde Länder zu bereisen. Am besten natürlich beides in Einem :) Zu meiner Person beantworte ich gerne alle Fragen, vllt zuerst soviel: Ich bin 25 Jahre alt, offen, unkompliziert, begeisterungsfähig, keine Zicke (u alles andere Gute- ein paar Macken sicher trotzdem inklusive ;)) und es zieht mich nun in sonnigere Länder- um schöne Plätze ausfindig zu machen, mich treiben zu lassen, zu entspannen und natürlich Nächte durchzufeiern, zu trinken u zu tanzen ;) Als Gast bin ich ganz sicher zuverlässlich, respektvoll u dem Gastgeber gegenüber interessiert u offen. Kurz und gut- das wars :) English: My english is not the best so this part is going to be a lot shorter to keep it easy for all of us ;) I am 25 years olda nd live in one of the most beautifull cities in germany: cologne. but although I love my home, my friends and my city I would like to get to know other nice places and interesting people. I am looking for the things everyone would love to have in holidays: sunny moments, relaxing hours, nice aquaintances, good food, and nights full of dancing, party and drinking. And of course we (my boyfriend and I travel together) are friedly, clean and reliable guests!
