Dear potential guests and site visitors, hopefully we are a nice couple of 48/50 (and our dog Timmy), and our daughter has moved to London. Now our very large flat has a spare room, that we would like to rent temporarily. It is fully furnished, approx 25sqm, there is a large wardrobe, a desk, a huge bed with new mattress and slatted frame. Furthermore a side board with several drawers and other storage options. Of course you have your own house key. A guest toilet is available. The location is very central. And we have a perfect connection to the railway station, it takes 10 minutes by tram, the stop is 3 minutes away and gets you in all directions. From A, such as pharmacists, to Z, dentist just a few minutes. Grocery stores, bakeries, pubs, restaurants all there. We live in the most popular district of Karlsruhe, in a house that was built in 1900. The neighbors are very nice and international. In summer you can sit outside and relax. Ideal for short-term visitors, exhibition and convention visitors, or just for pleasure.
We are looking forward to guest from around the globe. The room is facing the street and can be darkened with a shutter. There is also a breakfast on request, vegetarian, with egg, and everything your heart desires. There is water and coffee for free 24h/ day. You can use the washing machine (for a small fee of 2EUR), which is convenient if you are planning on a longer stay. The kitchen is fully equipped. And you can be happy you let off steam while cooking. Store things in the fridge, of course. There is internet access and TV.
In the summer / fall it is perfect to get around by bicycle. I can borrow a bike if urgent.
We share everything with our guests, except of course our bedroom. You have a separate guest toilet. The bathroom and the kitchen we share. In the kitchen you can eat breakfast, cook and store food in the refrigerator. We have everything you need in a kitchen. We also have coffee, tea and water around the clock. In summer you can sit on the balcony and chill. There you can also smoke. In the basement you can safely stow a bike.
Interaction with Guests
Good communication is the most important. Where we can help, we try and do the best we possibly can. For problems of any kind, we try to eliminate them. We respect the privacy, behave considerately. Therefore, please always equal to speak with us. Sometimes arise long, interesting conversations, cooking together, or going to a restaurant. Respect and courtesy we expect each guest.
there are plenty of transport options. tram and busses within 3min walking distance from our flat. single ticket starts from approx. 2,30€.
At our premises, the normal rest periods apply, from 11pm to 6am. During this time you should not play loud music and refer from taking showers if possible. But that is handled very loose. There are mainly young people / communities living in our house. During summer there are garden parties happening in the back yard which will not affect you as the room is facing the opposite direction.
Smoking is permitted on our loggia.We are smoking too. Very enjoyable in the summer, not that great in the winter. But this also helps to smoke less;-)
We would like to ask you to only use the guest toilet. Especially at night as the bathroom is next to my bedroom. We would handle it the same way.
We have included check-in times as some guests are not informing us about their arrival times. And we would appreciate not to wait for hours & hours. You can check in any time, even late at night if you need to. Check-out time depends on whether we have new guests arriving the following day. As you can imagine we want to make sure that every guest finds a nice, clean and pleasant home away from home. In the past there have never been any overlaps with guests. You are welcome to leave some luggage with us and pick it up later that day.
When you check in, there is a house key, which opens the main entrance and flat door, as well as a bicycle storage room, if you bring one and want to safely stowed away.
Die ersten Tage des Jahres bei Michaela und Volker waren ein sehr gelungener Start ins Jahr 2015.
Freundliche Gastgeber, eine saubere Unterkunft mit gemütlichem Bett, leckeres Frühstück und Timmy!! (süßester Hund!) :D
Die Anbindung zur Bahn war optimal und um Lebensmittel zu kaufen ist man hier auch bestens versorgt mit Einkaufsmöglichkeiten!
Nur zu empfehlen! :)
I arrived late but was warmly welcomed by Michaela and her husband and their sweet little dog.
The room is very welcoming, spacious, a fantastically comfy bed and the hinged shutters at the window allowed for a perfect sleep.
Likewise Wifi worked great and the little extra is the breakfast offered and served by Michaela, a very sweet treat.
I am biased , for sure, sine I was born and raised in this beautiful though sort of unknown city, Karlsruhe, in the heart of Europe, ...well , if you wanna find out more, come to this place , Michaela will tell you all you can do and discover and yes, her place is as good as the city, an underestimated jewel!
Nice room, very kind & helpful hosts, very near of the centre. The neighbourhood is quite calm even being near the centre. If you come with car you'll probably need to search a little to park. Everything was fine for us. I recommend this hotspot.
Michaela and her husband were excellent hosts. Also their small dog Tibby that is very cute.
They welcomed us in a warm home, lovely and big bedroom; they served us a breakfast as we like – in all we felt like home.
The apartment is very close to a tram station (1 min walk), a super market (30 seconds walk) and the city centre (15 min walk).
We give the best recommendations for this wonderful family.
Wie schon das letzte Mal eine wunderbare Unterkunft mit äußerst netten Bewohnern. Kann ich nur empfehlen und werde ich sicher wieder in Anspruch nehmen, wenn es verfügbar ist.
Was will man mehr: freundliche Gastgeber, saubere Wohnung, helles großes Zimmer (das dank perfekter Holzjalousie zum Schlafen absolut dunkel ist), Frühstück ganz nach Wunsch und zentral gelegen - ich komme bestimmt wieder.
Wir danken euch nochmals für den angenehmen Aufenthalt bei euch! Das Zimmer ist sehr gross, das Badezimmer sauber und die Menschen supernett.
Liebe Grüsse nach Karlsruhe, Jacqueline
