Description

The space

Beside a small park the flat is located in the groundfloor (to the inner green courtyard - very silent) of this old "Gründerzeit-house" (3,60 m ceiling height). From the central station you walk 8 minutes, to the next underground (Ebertplatz) and to the river Rhine it is only 3 minutes, to the Cathedral (Dom) 12 minutes.

All shops for the daily needs are very conveniently situated: around the street-corner you find 2 bakeries (also open on Sunday morning) a kiosk (open daily until 21:30), a small grocer's shop and a laundry/dry cleaning store and restaurants.
Within 3 minutes you reach the lively and popular areas of "Eigelstein" and "Agnesviertel" with lots of bars and restaurants and supermarkets (Rewe, open Mo-Fr from 07am until midnight, Sat until 10 pm).
To the new combined ice rink and swimming pool (with sauna) "Lentpark" you walk ca. 10 minutes.

The flat is fully equiped with tv (26"), nespresso machine, free wifi/lan (DSL 50.000), including bedlinen, towels and a hairdryer. In addition to the double bed (160 x 200 cm) you can also have a mattress (140 x 190 cm) and a baby bed (Hauck Reisebett Dream'n Play, 60x120 cm). A washingmachine and a dryer are the cellar (with tokens, which you can get by me).

The main station (Köln Hbf) you reach within 10 minutes (walking distance), the next tram station is „Ebertplatz“ (lines 12 and 15, 16 and 18).

You can park your car in the Clever Str, but only where the park begins and on the following side. You get the tickets (€ 4.- per day and available for up to seven days) in the machines. Right in front of the house it is very expensive (one hour for € 2.- maximum 4 hours). You can rent bicycles from „Radstation“ (in front of the main station, Breslauer Platz), € 10 per day, 3 days € 20.-, 7 days € 40.-

Guest access

Usually I will give you the keys personally, if not possible you will get them in the kiosk at the street corner.
Check-in: from 02:00pm, check-out: until 11:00 am) Very late check-in (after 09:00 pm) would be also possible (via gas station).

Interaction with guests

easy and convenient communication via email or mobile phone

The neighborhood

The apartment is located in the low traffic road "Clever Str." between the streets "Thürmchenswall" and "Theodor-Heuss-Ring (the airbnb map is not precise) very central but quiet in the quarter "Kunibertsviertel". All the touristic hot spots can be reached by walking. Nearby you find the vibrant quarters "Eigelstein" and "Agnesviertel" with lots of bars, restaurants and supermarkets. Take a very nice walk along the riverside to the old town (Altstadt).

Hi, I am a musician (percussion and composition) and I use my apartment now as a studio (but I also lived there for 5 years). I have to travel a lot and I don´t use the studio daily, so therefore I can offer it on airbnb. Hope you will enjoy your stay in the center of Cologne!
