Apartment, central, calm, cosy

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Clever Straße, Cologne, North Rhine-Westphalia 50668, Germany

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.

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).

  • 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.

  • Thomas was a perfect host: the communication went perfectly, he was very friendly, he told us a lot about the area: places we could go to (markets,restaurants,the station...).
    The appartement was very cosy, clean and lies in a quiet neigbourhood, the market is very neirby, station also very neirby. Everything was perfect, we had a wonderful time in Köln and we want to thank Thomas for that :)

  • Thomas ist ein toller Gastgeber, der Kontakt war mehr als gut. Er antwortet schnell auf jegliche Fragen. Wir fanden eine saubere Wohnung vor, sie ist sehr zentral gelegen und ruhig. Diese Räumlichkeiten sind auf jedenfall weiter zu empfehlen!

    April 2014
  • Die Wohnung entspricht genau den Bilder und ist mit vielen schönen Details eingerichtet. Sie ist sehr sauber und es ist alles vorhanden was man so braucht. Die Kommunikation mit Thomas war sehr angenehm und unkompliziert. Die Lage ist perfekt, um Köln zu Fuß zu erkunden, und trotzdem sehr ruhig. Einziger Nachteil ist, dass sich die Wohnung im Erdgeschoss befindet, wodurch relativ wenig Licht hinein kommt.

  • Nice apartment great location very close to the center

    March 2014
  • Nice place, in a non-touristic area, and I loved this. Though it's only 10 minutes walk to the main station and 5 minutes from the first tube station. In the area there are some bakeries and a nice local restaurant. Also with few minutes walking there is a nice square with other restaurants.
    The place is comfortable for 2 persons and the builiding is very quite. Thomas its a nice person.

    March 2014
  • This apartment was great! Very centrally located and a neat little recording studio. Thomas was a great host. He was very knowledgeable about the area and willing to help. Looking forward to my next visit to Cologne.

    March 2014

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
