I have a little bathroom with toilet and sink on the second floor (private), so I just use "your" bathroom on the third floor once a day for taking a shower.;-)
Towels and bed linen are included - so you don´t need to waste the space for this in your luggage!;-)
Coffee and tea is also included for your convenience.:-) ->You shall finally feel at home..;-) Unfortunately no kitchen joint use.

Noch ein kleiner Hinweis: Die anfallende Umsatz- Einkommens- und Bettensteuer eures Besuchs wird durch mich abgeführt, zusätzlich fällt eine Provision an airbnb an. Wer den günstig kalkulierten Preis eines komfortablen Neubaus in direkter Rheinlage dennoch als zu teuer empfindet, der bucht halt eben woanders..;) -> Nicht böse gemeint, muss aber mal gesagt werden..;)
A nice and clean place, with a very kind host: Thank you Kerstin!
Kerstin welcomed me although I was 2 hours late for the appointment!
I enjoyed the stay there. The place is clean, welcoming, cute, quiet and with a peaceful & beautiful view. Not so far away from the tram station. Perfect location to get relaxed after visiting the busy city center of Koln.
We were for the second time at Kerstins place. All went very well. Kerstin is a kind and welcoming host. The place has a lovely view to the rhine in a modern surrounding. Very comfortable bathroom.
Mind, if you want breakfast at Sunday in one of the surrounding Cafés (walk 5 Min), reservation is recommended.
Kerstin's offering room is very pretty decorated and comfortable. The bath room is also clean and pretty. I felt her hospitality and warm welcome. One thing that I had incovenience is internet connection. The USB wifi connection was offered but the description is in German , so I did not understand how to do it.
Kerstin is a very hospitable and friendly. All is clean, the place is cosy and it's just a nice to stay there.
Kerstin was very nice and the appartment was very clean, with a cool bathroom.
You share the appartement but you have you're own entrance and your own floor. The place is ok, with a view on the river.
It's not close to the citycenter so a quiet place.
Kerstins place is amazing! Very modern and clean with nice amenities. She has a great eye for detail and had everything from tea to maps of the city set out for us to make us feel welcome. The location is not right in the city but it's easy to get around with public transit Kerstin was really friendly and was able to accommodate us very last minute which we appreciated!
Kerstin is a great host. She made us feel very welcome in her apartment, asking what food we like for breakfast, and 'topping up' the chocolates on the table each day :).
The apartment is brand new (completed in early 2012) immaculate, with nice river views, and beautifully decorated. It is convenient for getting to the Cologne fair.
A colleague and I stayed 8 days for a trad fair and became good friends with Kirsten, she showed us some local sights and places to eat. It was very good.
As a business traveller, the only downside was not having wifi. Also, the german SIM (blau) did not get good coverage in the apartment, maybe Deutche Telekiom would be better next time.
Kerstin was a great host, especially for our first airbnb experience! Her place is very clean and nice. Our room had plenty of information about the area too, it was all very well thought out. Only wish we stayed longer to enjoy seeing more of Cologne! Kerstin was nice enough to show us some of the sites and let us tag along to meet up with a friend for drinks as well.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
