About this listing
Hello everybody! Enjoy your stay in this Japanese-style apartment in one of Cologne's traditional buildings (Altbau) in the so-called Quartier Latäng. The apartment is comprised of two bedrooms, a kitchen and a large bathrooom. Whether it's business or pleasure which brings you to Cologne you will find a comfortably furnished accommodation. The 140 cm futons in the bedrooms provide a good sleeping possibility for one or two persons each. Towels and bedlinen are provided. The apartment is newly refurbished and has two large wooden double-glazed windows. In the roomy, comfortable and fully fitted living kitchen you find everything you need. There is also a Nespresso Coffee machine and a large fridge-freezer. The bathroom is very big, has a large window and is equipped with toilet, sink and over bath shower (see photographs).
The apartment is located in the Zülpicher Strasse near the Zülpicher Platz, one of Cologne's hot spots and well known for its vibrant neighborhood "Kwartier Latäng" with a lot of bars, eateries and many possibilities for going out. The abundance of pleasant cafés and bars as well as the presence of so many young people give this quarter its special vivacious charm. It's known as a place for going out. Having said this, you should be aware that one can not totally escape the vivid hustle and bustle on Zülpicher Strasse. If you are looking for a lively central neighborhood in Cologne, you will feel right at home. If you expect the peace and quiet of a purely residential neighborhood, you may be more happy somewhere else :)
In any case, the apartment is decorated with a lot of care and provides you with a cosy habitat in the middle of a pulsating surrounding. The many out-of-the-ordinary shops and cafés give this district an artistic atmosphere. You can also find one of Cologne's most beautiful beer gardens just around the corner at the Rathenauplatz and have a rest while looking at some boule players.
Shopping facilities are in the immediate vicinity, a major supermarket only 200m away.
Train station (station name: „Köln Süd“, 200m away) und public transport (tram and bus at stations „Zülpicher Platz or „Barbarossaplatz“) are only 2 minutes away. The trams run all day long.
You can reach Köln/Messe within 15 minutes and Cologne’s Central Train Station in 12 minutes by public transport. You need about 10min by foot to Cologne University and 3min by tram. All major downtown sights are closeby and can be reached within minutes by public transport or a 10-25min walk, depending on the sight and including the Cologne Cathedral.
We will gladly answer any further questions you might have. At the same time, we would like to ask you to carefully read our "House Rules". They are very important to us and ensure that your stay will be a happy one for all of us :)

Fui con 3 personas más de viaje a Köln y Nina consiguió que nos sintiéramos como en casa en todo momento, nos recomendó sitios que visitar, restaurantes, bares e incluso la forma de llegar desde el aeropuerto de Köln hasta el apartamento. El apartamento es tal y como se indica en la descripción, muy cómodo y con fácil conexión con el transporte público. El barrio, aunque un poco ruidoso, gozaba de un ambiente universitario perfecto para tomarse algo justo al lado de casa.
Lo recomiendo y seguro que repetiría si volviese a Köln, ha sido una estancia magnífica.
Très bon séjour, Nina a été très accueillante et arrangeante pour que notre séjour se passe au mieux. L'appartement dispose de chambres spacieuses et tout était bien propre. Il est situé à 10 min seulement du centre-ville en tram! Par contre, le quartier dispose de beaucoup de bars, etc.. donc ceux qui recherchent le calme s'abstenir.
The place matched the description exactly. It was a cute place, in a nice neighborhood, and the hosts were very responsive over messages and email. The kitchen is very cute and well-stocked, the bathroom is spacious and well-lit, and the internet worked well the entire time. I would definitely recommend it to others.
The one minor downside of the apartment is the lack of a couch, which would have been nice to relax on. Oh, and also the temperature in Cologne while we were there was nearly 100F at times, and the apartment doesn't have air conditioning. This is, however, quite standard for the city, AC units are very rare in apartments in Cologne.
Very nice and clean apartment. Our host was on vaccation, but the communication was not affected at all by that. The location was perfect.
The description was accurate - the apartment is spacious and clean and in a very fun neighbourhood with lots of good bars and restaurants. Habibi falafel right underneath the apartment is amazing. We never met Nina in person but it was very easy to find the place and to get in. Definitely recommend.
Great apartment with a great location. Very roomy, and everything you could need to be comfortable. Our host warned us that it could get noisy on Saturday night (and it did), but our other nights did not have that issue.
The local area contains an endless variety of restaurants and pubs. Even a nice beer garden in the nearby park, which was great for 'the kid'. Public transportation is a short walk away to give you access to the city.
We unfortunately were never able to meet our host, Nina, due to her having another obligation at the same (short ) time that we were there. However, her communications were always prompt, extremely helpful and friendly.
Nina en Mortimer zijn zeer adequaat en zorgvuldig in de voorbe-reidende contacten om er voor te zorgen dat alles vlot verloopt. Ondanks dat er zelf niet waren om ons te ontvangen was alles perfect voorbereid. Het is een mooi, ruim en licht appartement dat aangenaam is ingericht en voldoende ruimte biedt voor vier perso-nen. De keuken is ook goed geequipeerd. De ligging in een drukke eet- en uitgangsbuurt zorgt ervoor dat er er 's nachts lawaaiig kan zijn. De dubbele ramen kunnen het geluid niet buitenhouden. De een heeft daar last van, de ander slaapt er gewoon doorheen. Voordeel van de ligging is wel dat je ook te voet naar de binnenstad kunt, ongeveer 25 minuten tot de Dom. Het vinden van een goede en betaalbare parkeerplaats voor de auto kan een probleem zijn. Naast de universiteit is er een ruime parking ( 15 min lopen) voor langer parkeren, wel alleen met muntgeld te betalen. Een aantal praktische aanbevelingen van onze kant zijn door de eigenaars meteen beantwoord. Voor ons doel: een cultuurreis naar Keulen was dit appartement een ideale uitvalsbasis. Zeker voor diegene die niet gestoord worden door het nachtlawaai. Kortom, wij zijn tevreden met deze airbnb !
