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-Sa- 07:00 until 24:00).
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"), free wifi/lan (DSL 16.000), 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

Normally I will give you the keys personally, if not possible you wikk get them in the kiosk or at the neighbour (living in the ground floor).
Flexible check-in check-out: if there is no direct booking before or after your reservation, an early check-in or a late check-out would be possible according to a special agreement. Normally the check-in is from 01:30 pm and check-out until 11 am). Very late check-in (after 09 pm) would be also possible according to a special agreement.

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).

Getting around

Public transit
The main station (Köln Hbf) you reach within 10 minutes (walking distance), the next tram station (U-Bahn) is „Ebertplatz“ (lines 12 and 15, 16 and 18), 3 minutes from the apartment

Airplane
From airport Cologne/Bonn (CGN): take the train (DB): S 13 oder RE in direction city (Köln Hbf), every 20-30 minutes, duration 15 minutes, please buy tickets (Tarif 1b) in advance at the automat, when you buy a ticket for 4 travels you have to validate them. There is usually a lot of controlling.

  • We loved your apartment Thomas -we walked all over Cologne and walked to the ferry to travel up the Reine.

  • I had a lovely time in Cologne. It is a nice place In a great neighborhood. Thomas was great in communicating with me, answered all my concerns and questions before booking which helped me a lot to schedule my time in Cologne. Thank you Thomas !

  • Gern war ich bei Thomas zu Gast, das Appartmwirklichent ist wirklich nett eingerichtet. Ich habe mich sehr wohl gefühlt und absolut ruhig geschlafen. Beim nächsten Tripp nach Köln buche ich mich ich gern wieder ein. Die Schlüsselübergabe war problemlos über den Kiosk organisiert, denn leider steckte ich in einem langen Stau fest und konnte erst später als geplant in Köln sein.

  • First and best experience with Airbnb. Everything went smooth. First I booked 2 nights but then I missed my train and could only come the second day. I contacted Thomas and he was understanding. He arranged it so I will be able to get the keys the second day.
    When I got there it was really easy to find the place. It is really close to the train station. It's situated in a calm neighborhood and the studio is super cozy and cute. It is exactly like on the picture and was really tidy and clean. I really fell in love and I slept like a baby.
    The instructions that are given by Thomas are really clear and good.
    I would definitely stay there again if I am in Cologne!

    Thanks :)

  • Wir hatten einen sehr schönen Aufenthalt in Köln. Obwohl unsere eigentliche Wohnung schon vergeben war (auf Grund einer Verwechslung) haben wir im gleichen Haus eine gleichwertige sehr schöne Wohnung bekommen. Der Vermieter kam extra noch vorbei, um sich zu entschuldigen. Die Wohnung ist super ausgestattet (Küche sehr gut, inkl. Nespresso-Kaffeemaschine) und die Lage ist einfach perfekt, um die Stadt zu erkunden und nur 3 Gehminuten zum Rhein.

  • Loved this little studio- well equipped and location was perfect. Thomas supplied us with tips for the local area ie supermarket and where to eat. Our first meal, lunch ,was just up the road opp the bakery - Max Stark and it was great. Both local and friendly,English menu/ speaking and good prices . We had everything we needed with the studio . Thanks Thomas

  • Thomas was extremely friendly and gave us very useful advice around the neighbourhood and Cologne. The apartment is exactly what we expected from the AirBnb photos, and we found it very homely and everything we needed was provided. Would definitely recommend this apartment to a friend!

  • Thomas was vriendelijk en voorkomend. Het appartement vonden we eenvoudig en gezellig. Alles wat we nodig hadden was aanwezig. De omgeving was rustig. Het appartement is gelegen dichtbij de Rijn en het centrum. Met winkels en restaurants in de directe omgeving.
    Kortom: een aan te raden plek voor een paar dagen Keulen!

  • Thomas hat extrem schnell auf meine Buchungsanfrage für einen sehr spontanen Köln-Trip reagiert und uns bei der Ankunft auch sehr nett empfangen. Die Wohnung war total super: sauber, alles da (Handtücher, Fön, (Koch-)Geschirr und Besteck/Gläser), außerdem WLAN-Zugang. Parken konnte man wie beschrieben um die Ecke für 4,00 Euro pro Tag und brauchte auch das Auto danach während des Aufenthalts nicht mehr: Die Lage der Wohnung war so gut, dass man bequem in die Altstadt/zum Dom, zum Supermarkt/Bäcker/Restaurants im Eigelsteinviertel etc. laufen oder aber auch mit der U-Bahn ab Ebertplatz fahren konnte.
    Alles in allem sehr zu empfehlen für die perfekte Städtereise!

  • Thomas made things very easy. The apartment was clean, well located and affordable. My trip to Köln was very enjoyable and made better by my stay at Thomas's address. I would certainly recommend this apartment.

About
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! Thomas
