Köln Hansaring is situated in the city of Cologne about 1 km Northwest of Cologne Cathedral/Dom and the main train station - Köln Hbf.

The room and bathroom were clean and cozy and the bed was very comfortable. Met both Fred and Kit and they were both helpful and friendly. Location is great as well. Highly recommend!
During our stay we only met Fred, who welcomed us upon arrival to the apartment. He was helpful in providing us with a map and some directions for getting around the city. The room was very cute and cozy, and the private bathroom was nice as well. This was my first time staying at an Airbnb so I'm not sure what the norm is, I would note though that the kitchen is not for use during your stay, which may be more of a consideration for those planning longer stays. Overall we had a great stay in this apartment.
Alors là, BRAVO à Kitt & Frédéric ! Tout a été parfait de la prise de contact jusqu'à la fin du séjour. Je me suis senti comme chez des amis. Kitt m'avait même préparé un plan pour m'aider à découvrir le OFF de l'IMM. La chambre est spacieuse et vous disposez de votre propre salle de bain. L'appartement est superbe et très bien situé, à 10/15 mins à pied du centre ville. C'est définitivement un très bon plan si vous vous rendez à Cologne. Un grand merci à Fred & Kitt pour leur sourire, leur disponibilité et leur accueil fantastique !
Everything was great. Kitt & Fred are fantastic hosts, friendly, charming, and informative and the room is super comfortable. 10-15 mins. walk from Hbf. Gave us great restaurant suggestions. Can highly recommend to other guests.
Lovely evening with the extremely charitable and thoughtful Fred&Kitt. Everything one could want was available - comfy bed, immaculately clean room and bathroom, friendly hosts.
I had such an amazing experience with Fred and Kitt! Everything was perfect: the neighbourhood, the directions from the airport to their place, the location, the room and, most of all, the hosts. So welcoming and chatty and informal! Just perfect. I would have no hesitation recommending them and staying there again every time. Thank you so, so much!
Kitt war eine grandiose und aufmerksame Gastgeberin! Sie hat sich liebenswert gekümmert, hatte sogar einen Stadtplan parat und half mir bei der Orientierung. Das Zimmer und das Bad waren wunderbar vorbereitet, Kitt hat an wirklich alles gedacht.
Absolute Empfehlung für jeden, der nach Köln reist. Die Wohnung ist super gelegen und sehr gemütlich.
Cologne is a wonderful city that is a melting pot of culture and very often you'd hear people praising it for its openness and diversity. Fred is originally from France and Kitt is from Malaysia. A chance meeting in Cologne brought the couple together. Both remain avid travellers and are semi-professional tourist. Come and share their brand of living when you are in Cologne, a home away from home for everybody.
