Thank you in advance!
Michael really made us feel welcome. He gave good tips as were to eat and gave us clear directions for the routes to the Altstadt. He was very flexible with checking in and out. Really a great host. The apartment was big enough for more people, especially because the kitchen was quite large and because there were two toilettes. Everything was very neat and clean, with all the equipment you need. The location was great: a very quiet neighbourhood, with a supermarket around the corner (great bread!). Walking to Bismarckplatz took us about 20 minutes and public transport was good (bus and taxi).
The property was great for our visit. accommodations were exactly what we needed: traveling with a family of 5; it is oftentimes hard and expensive to find suitable living arrangements. Our Host was most gracious and met us upon arrival; providing a tour of the flat, and important information that we may need while visiting. Additionally, he made available local transit information and schedules, as well as provided a great restaurant recommendation!
Overall, we had a great experience!
Michael was great! Booking was very efficient, and Michael gave great directions for the public transportation and how to access the apartment. His apartment was very cute and clean, exactly like the pictures! We were very comfortable and an easy tram ride to the city center.
VIelen Dank für schöne Zeit in Heidelberg !
Deine Wohnung ist ein Ideal Platz für kurze und längere Aufenthalt. Groß, hell und besonderes ruhig. Küche und Balkon ist SUPER !!! Einkaufsplatz und Straßenbahn Haltestelle ist wirklich nur ein paar Meter von Tür. Abe auch zu Fuß kann man Altstadt innerhalb von 20 Minuten erreichen.
VIelen Dank noch mal
Michael was a great host. He was waiting for us in the flat when we arrived and gave us a quick tour of the place along with some recommendations for places to eat and see while in Heidelberg. The flat was great for us (family of 4), everything was clean and the beds were nice and comfortable. Would definitely recommend Michael's place if you are taking a trip to Heidelberg.
Netter und herzlicher Empfang von Michael, unserem Gastgeber. Die Wohnung ist freundlich und geräumig und bietet alles, was man zum Wohlfühlen braucht. Der Kontakt war stets unkompliziert und Michael reagierte prompt. Wir schätzten besonders den lauschigen kleinen Balkon und die insgesamt ruhige Lage der Wohnung. Die Einkaufsmöglichkeit in direkter Nähe und die entspannte Parkplatzsituation rundeten die Annehmlichkeiten ab. Wir kommen gerne wieder, herzlichst Sabine und Regine
