The apartment is located at Rathenauplatz, right in the middle of the student quarter. 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 about 10 minutes, trams run frequently all day long.
Update on club situation: There's a new nightclub in the basement. Even though there are five floors between the club and the apartment the music they play can be heard in the apartment, not very loud but noticeable. They usually have events on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night. For a place that's completely quiet during the weekend I recommend my other apartments CologneHQ or HQ4, you'll find them via my profile.
Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit! Die Wohnung liegt perfekt von der Lage und war eine gemütliche Unterkunft. Essen uns trinken stand uns auch zur Verfügung, beim nächsten Köln Besuch werden wir bestimmt wiederkommen!
Had a great stay at Andis place in Cologne. We went there for carneval. The flat has a great location with a lot of bars right next to it. We were 8 people, which was really the maximum for the place. Everything was cleaned and Andi even prepared some drinks for us :)
Andi was very friendly and the place very nice. The location is also really good.
I would return and also recommend it to others.
We had a great stay in Cologne. The apartment is very well located (a lot of restaurants and bars around) and nicely equipped (wifi, apple tv). Unexpected bottle of prosecco and kolsch were a great bonus. I highly recommend this place for your next visit in Cologne!
Die Wohnung ist perfekt um einen kleinen Städtetrip nach Köln zu machen. Super Lage, süße Wohnung und netter Gastgeber. Nur zu empfehlen!!!! :-) Hatte viel spaß mit meinen Freundinnen!
Andreas was a very polite and cooperative host. Even my inquiry came in as a last minute request he managed to prepare the apartment, met me and even helped me with my luggage and much more.
The apartment was very clean, warm, nice and had everything I needed. Even a hair-dryer that saved my weekend since I had forgotten mine ;-)
Anytime again. Thanks again for everything!
Die Wohnung war echt super und wir haben da ein cooles Wochenende verbracht. Die Lage ist auch perfekt, man kann von dort echt quasi alles zu Fuss machen. Würde ich auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen :)
The perfect apartment. Comfy bed, heaps of space, Nespresso coffee - what more could you want! Super clean as well, and the guy who let us in/gave us the key was really helpful and punctual. Andreas had the best communication out of any airbnb host I've dealt with. Easy and interesting walk to the centre of town and bus/train were just a few minutes walk away. Would definitely stay there again
Everythig was fine. Apartment is situated in central part of the city. A lot of pubs around. Danke Andreas.
We had a great stay at Andreas' apartment to see in the new year.
The location was one of the most pleasing and important factors for us. It was very easy to get around and get back to the apartment. There are also a few cool little places near the apartment. If
You turn left out of the front door of the building there is a nice bar on the corner of the main road, and we had an amazing breakfast in the little restaurant directly opposite the front door on New Year's Day.
The apartment itself was very basic, the beds were perfectly comfortable and the bathroom was good, with a brilliantly powerful shower. It was everything we really needed.
The one niggle we had with this stay was that the internet didn't work for 3 of the 4 nights of our stay which made it impossible for us to do any research while we were there about things to do and see etc.
Andreas was a brilliant host with fantastic communication, helpful and fast!
Overall we had a great trip and I would definitely recommend it for anyone going for a similar purpose!
