About this listing
I'm renting a sleeping room in my two room apartment. We share the bathroom, you can use the fridge, water cooker etc., proper cooking only upon agreement. I am living and working in the other room, so this is neither a hotel nor a holiday apartment.
I live alone in a beautiful, individually dressed and quiet two room apartment with a porch and small garden in the center of Munich (Maxvorstadt, about 1 km / 0.7 miles from Central Station). You'll have my cosy sleeping room with a french bed (140x200 cm) all for yourselves. The bed is without metal and equipped with a thick, high class futon but a bit harder than a standard hotel bed. A third person can sleep on a comfortable air bed on the floor if needed.
Of course the bathroom, Wi-Fi, refrigerator, water cooker and washing machine are at your service as well. Clean sheets and towels are being provided - just ask if you need something else. I'm also having two spare bicycles that you can use for free.
Please keep in mind that this is a private accommodation and not a hotel or holiday apartment; I live and work here! Please inform me about your demands and expectations before booking unless you just want a place for sleeping. Tea and coffee are free but I'm not allowed to offer breakfast, daily room cleaning or other hotel style services. Due to previous desasters you cannot cook by yourselves but I like cooking together with especially nice guests if time permits.
Don't worry, I'm easy going and hospitable but we will share this place and so good communication before and after your arrival is important. I'm looking forward to meeting you!
Interaction with Guests
I'm always reachable in real time via Airbnb messages that go right to my smartphone. After booking you'll also get my personal mail address, phone numbers and a map with directions.
Maxvorstadt is Munich's university quarter and known for "arts and pubs". All important art galleries are right around the corner, as well as many cafes, bars, restaurants and small shops of all sorts. Metro, tramway and bus are all next to my door but you can even walk to the inner city within 15 minutes. It's an especially attractive and exciting neighborhood, now that's why I live here ;-)
The public transport system of Munich is perfectly organised with some lines running all night. Next stops are tramways 20/21 (Sandstr.), metros U1 (Stiglmaierplatz) und U2 (Theresienstr.) and bus 100 (Technische Universität, also serving the most important art galleries). Single ride tickets and day passes are available, ask me about details.
Exploring by bicycle is even better and nicer. I have two spare bikes that you can use.
For car drivers: car traffic is regulated in the centers of all major German cities (for Munich: inside of "Mittlerer Ring"). Only vehicles with a green low emission sticker may enter there and finding a space for parking is often challenging. So I'd really recommend leaving your car outside of "Mittlerer Ring" where parking is unrestricted and free. There's always space for parking near beautiful Nymphenburg Castle and the subway will take you from Gern station to Siglmaierplatz next to my place within five minutes. If time allows, don't miss visiting the Castle's huge and romantic park, one of the most beautiful spots in Munich.
Other Things to Note
I love having nice guests and I'm especially looking forward to requests from people travelling with a backpack, a low budget and seeing Airbnb more as a friendly community than a cheap hotel. My rate is very inexpensive and the same for one or two guests. I charge a bit more for three guests as I have to supply the air bed and extra sheets then. If you are travelling on a really tight budget and with a sleeping bag the third person may stay for free on my Thermarest mat and you only have to book for two. Please ask in advance though! In reverse: if you're a company of two and don't want to sleep in the same bed you'll have book for three to obtain the extra bed. I hope that's fair, just ask.
Smoking and animals are not permitted, sorry. Children are welcome if they're 12 years or older. Using the kitchen beyond fridge and water cooker is only possible if agreed upon before booking. You'll get a key and are free to come and go any time, but please be quiet at night and respect the neighbors.
