My experience was excellent.
The other very positive reviews here are very accurate.
The apartment was clean and well equipped.
I contacted Jack for 3 different things and immediately received a response. He told me where the nearest laundry was and where the grocery store was.
The apartment looks exactly like the pictures. There was even an egg cooker. I've never used an egg cooker before and I liked it and will be buying one.
Jack was a very gracious and helpful host. From the outset we were made to feel very welcome, with tips on the city and useful advice. The apartment itself is just as advertised, and was a great place from which to explore the city, both being in a quiet neighborhood yet not too far away from things. Highly recommended :)
Jack ist ein sehr netter Gastgeber.Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
Das Apartment ist für eine kurze Aufenthalt sehr gemütlich.Ich bin
selber Gastgeber,deshalb sehe ich einiges was andere Besucher nicht
bemerken.Jack hat für seine Gäste viel (website hidden) hat sich nach unserem Befinden erkundigt und ob wir was benötigen.Das sind Geste,die man hochrechnen muß.
very very good~~!! clean and have every thing what you need. The market is little far and very close to school so little noise in the morning.
We just returned from our 2 month stay at the Designer Apt Cologne hosted by Jack Nour. He was very helpful and friendly, told us what we needed to know for our safety and comfort and made us feel right at home and very comfortable.
Everything in the apartment was just as in the listing with a fully stocked kitchen, nice coffee machine including assorted coffees, teas, sugar etc. There was also a safe for your valuables and documents. The building is equipped with not only stairs but an elevator as well.
The neighborhood is very nice and situated very close, short walking distance to the trains and the many restaurants and cute outdoor cafes, bakeries and pastry shops, grocery stores and anything you may possibly want in Chlodwigplatz, an area with castle walls. The Rhine river is only blocks away with a large promenade.
Thank you Jack for being such a fantastic host... we would definitely stay at your apartment again.
jack ist sehr nett, wohnung sehr sauber, zentrale lage (5min zu fuss zur ubahn), jack hat uns viele tipps gegeben betreffend köln. wohnung recht klein aber ausreichend für ein weekend.
Uns hat das Apartment sehr gut gefallen, es war sehr sauber, gut eingerichtet und Jack ist ein freundlicher, geduldiger (war in unserem Fall notwendig!), hilfsbereiter, umsichtiger Gastgeber. Alles perfekt!
