nice flat in oldtown, close to fair

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Seidmacherinnengäßchen, Cologne, North Rhine-Westphalia 50667, Germany

Cozy apartment for 2 people in perfect location.
In the heart of the old town, in walking distance to the cathedrale and the river Rhine. Also perfect for visitors of the fair.

The Space

Our modern, furnished and self contained accommodation is located in the heart of Cologne, directly next to the historical Heumarkt (Hay Market), the middle of the Old Town surrounded by the humming night life and a stones throw from the world famous Cologne Cathedral and a short walk from the promenade of the mighty Rheine, and perfect for guests attending the Cologne Trade Fairs, concerts, museums and shopping centres.

Due to the very central position, it is not always quiet, there is no closing hour in the oldtown. So if you are very senitive to noise, you should book an apartment further away from the center.

The Cologne Fair and Lanxess-Arena are only 5 minutes (two tram stops) from the Heumarkt and your accommodation.

The apartment is the perfect starting point to walk to the historical Old Town (Altstadt) with its typical famous Brewery Pubs, and numerous restaurants, cafés, museums, Musical Dome, Cologne Philharmonic orchestra, or the Rheine promenade, river cruises, shopping.

There are countless restaurants, bars and clubs to suite every taste all around, so a car is not needed during your stay in Cologne throbbing night life centre.

The apartment is completely furnished and equipped with a two ring kitchenette, fridge, freezer, toaster, coffemaschine and water boiler, 160 cm double bed, and large flat screen 80 cm TV and new bathroom with shower. Wifi is now availale and included.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Cornelia's apartment was perfect for our stay in Cologne. It is in the centre of old town and easy walking distance to everything you might want to see and do. It is a noisy part of town, church bells ringing, people talking, music playing and birds singing in the early morning- but it did not bother us. My daughter slept through it all, while I would wake and go back to sleep. Cornelian supplies ear plugs should you need them. Cornelian was also very accommodating allowing is an early arrival and late departure to fit in with our flights- much appreciated
    Thanks Tracy

  • Cornelia was an excellent host. Her place, while small, was perfect for my girlfriend and I, and was very clean. It's also very centrally located in the city, so it was easy to walk anywhere you would want to go. Cornelia was very easy to communicate with and made our stay extremely comfortable.

  • Nice and clean flat, well decorated, located in the city center...
    BUT I'd have loved to be informed that it's located directly above a NIGHT CLUB playing ULTRA LOUD MUSIC ALL NIGHT LONG.
    On the friday night we just couldn't sleep at all since music has been played from midnight until 11 AM! Walls were litteraly shaking...

    So if you come to Koln to enjoy the night life that's the best spot but if you want to visit the town and sleep peacefully.... avoid this place. I don't like to leave bad comments but this is a real problem in this cute and tiny flat...

  • The appartment is small but perfectly located at city center. It is close to cathedral and central train station, also very close to tram, that allow you to move whererver you go. I arrived late in the evening and Cornelia sent me clear indications to go from the airport. Communication with her was fluently and fast. The place was clean and completely furnished and equiped also with Wi-Fi. If I come back to Cologne, I am sure to stay again in that place. I'd recommend it to everyone!.

  • Cornelia ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Die Lage der Wohnung ist unschlagbar gut. Es ist alles sauber und das Bett ist super bequem. Zur Begrüßung empfängt einen eine Familienpackung Ohropax, was schon alles über die Nächte aussagt :-(! Ich habe mich allerdings auch etwas an dem Essensgeruch gestört, der von der Pizzeria unten bis in die Wohnung steigt. Für meine Bedürfnisse hatte das Bad zu wenige Ablagemöglichkeiten, weil es sehr klein ist und das Wasser der Dusche ließ sich nur schwer auf eine angenehme Temperatur einstellen. Aber das sind persönliche Dinge und alles in allem wars ok. Aufgrund der Lautstärke, auch sonntags nachts, würde ich mich aber nicht nochmal für diese Unterkunft entscheiden.

  • Hi all :)

    Cornelias Wohnung liegt perfekt für eine Städtereise nach Köln. Alles was uns typischen Touris gefällt ist zu Fuß schnell erreichbar (Dom, Hohe Strasse, Altstadt etc).

    Die wohnung selbst ist sehr gut eingerichtet, incl. W-Lan. Alles sehr sauber und absolut zu empfehlen.

    Das war meine erste AirBnB-Reise und ich war top zufrieden.

    Cornelia ist eine sehr freundliche und aufmerksame Vermieterin und jederzeit hilfsbereit und erreichbar.

  • The apartment is small but perfectly fine for a short stay. It was clean and as described. It's above a pizza shop just off a square and in front of some bars. On Sunday there was loud music playing even at 3am. Thankfully earplugs were provided or this review would've been very different. Monday was quiet. If you're planning on staying out late or don't mind wearing earplugs to sleep this is a well located and clean apartment.

  • A friend and I stayed here during a weekend in Cologne. The location was great, we were able to walk everywhere. It's about a 10-15 minute walk to the cathedral and train station so it was perfect for a short stay. There are plenty of good restaurants and bars nearby. The club downstairs was pretty loud at night but Cornelia provides earplugs. Although I did not meet her in person, Cornelia was very accommodating, she sent me a map and directions to the apartment before arrival and left the keys at the pizza place next door so we could check in earlier. I'd definitely recommend this apartment for a short stay in Cologne!
