The Space

Recently renovated private room on the 3rd floor (4th floor to you Americans!) of an apartment building from 1903. The room is comfortable, well lit, and has a walk-in shower.

Guest Access

No elevator, no TV, no kitchen, no fridge, free WiFi.

Let us know if you'd like the beds set up as a double or two single beds.

Interaction with Guests

Our building abuts the tracks leading to Cologne Main Station, making transport easy (see below), but the trains are audible as they pass by.

Your hosts: we speak English, German, Italian, and some French and Spanish.

Getting around

Transport:
- Subway (U-Bahn): 5 minute walk
- Commuter rail (S-Bahn): 5-minute walk
- Cologne Main Station (Köln Hauptbahnhof): 14 minute walk or 1-minute S-Bahn ride
- Car: not recommended. We're convenient to highways, etc., but parking is difficult to find in our inner city location.

Cologne trade fair:
5-10 minute S-Bahn ride – extremely convenient!

Shopping, culture, food:
In 15 minutes, you can walk to the Cathedral, which is the geographic and emotional heart of the city. Within a 20-minute walk, there are probably hundreds of restaurants and pubs (and we can recommend a few if you'd like!), dozens of museums, dozens of old churches (Romanic, Baroque, Gothic, and more), and a great deal of shopping (if that's your thing). Adding the city subways to the mix, you can be pretty much anywhere in the city within 20-30 minutes.

Other Things to Note

If you are a piano player and need to practice, we can offer the piano in our apartment.

  • It was great to sleep at Francesca and Jam place. They are very helpful and flexible about arrival and departure time. The neighbourhood is nice and very close to downtown, a good spot for a short stay.

  • We received a very warm welcome from Francesca and Jam. They were very kind hosts and promptly answered our questions.
    The apartment is very close to the metro and you can reach easily all the places you want to. We really had a short but nice stay in Cologne

  • We enjoyed this airbnb experience a lot. We basically had our own studio with our own toilet and shower. Francesca and Jam thought of everything to accomodate their guests. We were welcomed with christmas sweets and even had a seletion of teas and coffees at our disposal. In addition you are provided with shampoo and soap. We felt like we were well taken care of. Thank you.

  • The stay at Francesca & Jam was very nice!

    Their flat is very close to the city center and we never had to use the transports!

    the room was very clean and we could not hear the trains thanks to the new windows but we could hear the neighbours through the walls! Hopefully they did not make any noise at night, just a bit in the morning.

    The shower is very comfortable to use!

    All in all, it was a very pleasant stay!

  • We spent a night at Francesca's place during the first weekend of December to visit the Christmas markets. The room is spacious, very neat and has a wonderful shower. Francesca is a fantastic host: after a warm welcome, she explained which markets to visit to get the most out of our visit. Thanks to her, we had a really nice weekend in Cologne.

  • Highly recommended. Francesca and Jam are kind and considerate hosts.

    The room is quiet, and has a separate entrance so you can come and go as you wish. The shower is simply amazing!

  • I couldn't ask for a better first Airbnb experience! My friend and I came especially to celebrate the Carnival of Colone (very recommended!) and Francesca (and her two lovely kids) was very welcoming. She explained us about the city and the train schedule and even provided us some Carnival accessories(!), fruits, coffee, tea and guide books, which made us feel like home. Too bad Jam was out of town...
    The appartment's location was wonderful. The room was clean and renovated. Oh, and the shower was awesome!
    I wish I had some more time to talk with you McGuires, but my visit was very short. I hope to see you again some other time in Cologne or in Tel Aviv.
    Take care! :)
