You'll have the whole apartment for yourself, it's very quiet (no neighbors behind any walls). Small and functional bathroom, kitchenette and fridge. Kitchenware, dishes, glasses etc. included. The queen size bed comes with two fluffy feather beds and big pillows. It's actually a Beddinge couch with a Murbo mattress, guest Inga describes this combo as "astonishingly comfortable". For more than two guests we will provide an extra mattress the same size as the bed and additional beds, pillows, linen and towels.
The apartment will be cleaned before your arrival, and you will be provided fresh linen and towels. Minibar and coffee are complimentary, you'll find shower gel, shampoo and a hairdryer in the bathroom.
The apartment is located at Zülpicher Platz, one of Cologne's hot spots. The neighbourhood is referred to as "Kwartier Latäng", Cologne's very own, distinct "Quartier Latin". This translates to lots of eateries, bars, clubs, etc. all reachable within a few minutes by foot. Useful information about Cologne can be found on wikitravel, cologne de or wearecity de.
Cologne is linked with Amsterdam, Brussels, and Paris by Thalys and ICE High Speed trains. Additionally, Frankfurt airport (FRA) has direct service to Cologne and is within one hour by ICE trains. Köln Messe / exhibition centre can be reached conveniently by public transport, direct connection from Zülpicher Platz. Takes 10+ minutes, trams run frequently all day long.
The record for coffee consumption is held by a young british couple (14 servings in 20 hours). We don't know if they got any sleep.
Please be aware that there's no elevator in the building, and the apartment is on the 4th floor.

I spend my time between Melbourne, Shanghai and Cologne. Previous guests have described me with lots of different positive adjectives and adverbs, sometimes even using caps lock ("SUPER helpful"). In my free time I'm on a quest to read the entire internet and visit the 120± countries I haven't been to yet.
I am taking a break from active hosting since I am travelling full-time, currently my apartments are being managed by a company called WelcomeWendy.
