About this listing
Dear potential guests and site visitors, hopefully we are a nice couple. Our dog Timmy is living since 2 years with us. 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 2 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.
We had a comfortable stay at Michaela's apartment for two nights. Room was clean and spacious. We use separate toilet. Breakfast was good. Even we had to leave early morning, they prepare breakfast for us. It was so nice.
Michaela and her husband are very kind and helpful.
Wir haben über ein langes Wochenende die Gastfreundschaft von Michaela und ihrem Mann in Karlsruhe genossen. Sie wohnen am westlichen Ende der Karlsruher Innenstadt, das Zimmer ist also nicht nur von der Größe sondern auch von der Lage sehr gut für ein Wochenende!
Von der Organisation und Kommunikation im Vorfeld bis zum Aufenthalt hat alles reibungslos funktioniert - wir behalten Michaela & Volker als sehr gute Übernachtungsmöglichkeit in Karlsruhe im Kopf!
Staying in Karlsruhe in Michaela's flat was perfect, everything was exactly as she wrote. My husband and me were staying in the cozy room, we had the separate WC, the shared bathroom. Excellent breakfast in the morning. Michaela is a nice hostess. I recommend this accommodation. Best regards, Marie
