Sehr schöne Wohnung, sehr nette Gastgeberin, tolle Lage! Corry hatte tolle Infos, was man in Köln machen kann, für uns und zur Begrüßung gabs eine Flasche Hugo, also 100% empfehlenswert! Wir würden sofort wieder kommen :)!
Отличный вариант для пары.
Квартира находится на тихой улице, в 10 минутах от собора и центра города. К ней примыкает улица с хорошими и недорогими кафешками\ресторанами и большим продуктовым магазином.
Хозяева выдали карту, показали на ней достопримечательности и некоторые исключительно хорошие рестораны :)
Едьте к Корри, не пожалеете.
Another wonderful stay in the Mathildenstrasse apartment. Everything was nicely prepared, super clean, and welcoming - as always. Thank you, Corry & family!
Wir hatten ein schönes verlängertes WE in köln im Appartement von corry. Alles was man braucht ist da und die Grundausstattung ist sehr üppig. Danke für die Süssigkeiten :-) wir kommen gerne wieder
The apartment was very small but nicely finished with a very modern feel, the bathroom was big and very nice. The apartment was located in a nice, quiet neighbourhood on the other side of the river, about a 10 minute walk from the old town. Corry was very welcoming and provided us with maps and instructions for the apartment, as well as allowed use of the new washing machine on the first floor.
Only a couple downsides, one being the noise from the loading dock at the grocery store across the street starting every morning from 6-7am. The other was that we were there during a particularly hot week and there was no fan or A/C and it faces the sun so it was basiclaly a sauna. In cooler weather when you could close the windows it would be perfect.
Great centrally located and fine appartment. Though the place is in reality smaller than the photo's suggest, alll in all we had a very comfortable stay.
The apartment is clean and fitted to a very high standard. It's an easy 15-minute walk from the Hauptbahnhof, which means it's also within easy walking distance of the cathedral and Cologne's excellent main museums. The bed is comfortable and the bathroom feels very swanky with its marble finish. The kitchen is small but again excellently finished and is more than enough for simple cooking. We were in Cologne during a heatwave and so had the windows open; this made the sound from the street (occasional cars) feel quite loud but this probably wouldn't be a problem with the windows shut. Lastly the curtains let in quite a lot of light; was a slight problem for me as a light sleeper but wouldn't bother everyone. Overall, a luxuriously finished flat in a very convenient location to see Cologne's main attractions.

About the Host, Corry
My husband and I have recently moved to Cologne to help babysit our grandson. In our spare time, we teach English to professionals, pre-school children, and senior citizens. (The first profile picture shows me (in the middle) with my daugther Helen (right), sister Lizzy (left), cousin Christine and baby Enda. The second profile picture shows Enda with my husband Robert (right) and son-in-law Fergal.)The 3rd picture shows Enda in Oct 2012.With him being Irish we are having a hell of a job keeping him away from the beer.

Just phone us or send an SMS when you arrive in Cologne and we will be waiting for you to help with your luggage.We will not bother you during your stay and you can come and go as you please but we will be there if you need us
We both speak English, German and Franglais and will do our best to make you feel comfortable.
