Welcome to Ehrenfeld! We offer a charming and beautifully furnished 2 room apartment, 55m2, very quiet and sunny. It has one bedroom with a double bed 160x200, one living/dining room with a very comfortable sofa bed 160x200 (Ligne Roset Multy), a kitchen with dining table, bathroom with shower, a balcony and a huge terrace (smoking here is no problem whilst not permitted inside the apartment). The place has Wifi internet connection, the kitchen is fully equipped (stove with Ceran-field, microwave, dish washer, fridge and deep freezer, washing machine, coffee machine, electric kettle, toaster and of course plenty of plates, pots and pans. Iron and ironing board as well as towels and bed linen are also available for our guests.
The flat is located in a very calm, low traffic residential area in Ehrenfeld, one of the hippest parts of town. Whether you visit for sightseeing or are on a business trip, the public transport connection here is just excellent: Underground N° 5 (Gutenbergstr.) takes you in 7 min to the cathedral/central station, N°3 or 4 (Piusstr.) get you within 8 min to Neumarkt, the main shopping area, and in 15 min to the exhibition centre (Deutz Messe). Alternatively you can chose the Ehrenfeld Train Station to the exhibition centre (10 min) or Cologne Airport (20 min), and if you travel by car the A57 motorway starts 3 min from here.
Ehrenfeld offers a large variety of restaurants, take aways, bars and coffee places, further bars, restaurants and nightlife options in the so called Belgian Quarter and around Friesenstrasse are within walking distance or can be reached by tube within no time. Supermarkets (also for organic food), bakeries, pharmacy, drugstore, post office, dry clean etc are just 5 minutes away. Joggers will be pleased to find the large green belt just 500m away from their door step, and if you prefer a fitness studio or fancy one afternoon in a spa, we can highly recommend the Neptun Bad, a historical and beautifully renovated Jugendstil building in 10 min walking distance.
And one more thing: A bottle of wine as a welcome gift is included :-)
Any questions or wishes left open? We'd love to hear from you!
The place was great! I was travelling with my colleague so we needed two bed rooms. The sofa bed was great to sleep in and it was possible to close the doors on both rooms. Outside was hot (35C), but the apartment stayed quite cool during the days.
Our host was very welcoming, introduced a great pizza restaurant to us and respected our privacy at all times. I would definitely book this apartment again if I needed to visit Cologne again.
Getting out and back to the apartment was easy, it takes about 5 minutes to the tram and from there it was easy to get anywhere. Grocery stores and restaurants were also 5 minutes walk away, so no complaints. Neighborhood itself was very quiet and peaceful, it felt safe to walk there even during nights.
Anke was a wonderful host. She was very understanding as we had to change our arrival day/time due to sickness and airport delays. She always wrote back quickly and provided helpful information. The apartment itself has everything you need-a well-equipped kitchen to make a good meal, a terrace where you can sit in the sun, a nice living room with a selection of DVDs and well located to walk into the centre (2.5km) and supermarkets within 5 minutes walk. We enjoyed our restful stay in Cologne and would recommend this place to all travelers . Thank you Anke and Heiko!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Anke's/Heiko's apartment. The interiors are done really tastefully. There was an instant connection with Anke which made us totally feel at home during our stay. We strongly recommend this apartment for a relaxed and comfortable stay in Cologne Ehrenfeld.
Sehr schön eingerichtete Wohnung! Die Ausstattung ist sehr hochwertig. Vor allem der sehr große Balkon lädt zu einem Wein mit Blick auf den Fernsehturm an lauen Sommerabenden ein. Alles war super sauber und die Kommunikation unkompliziert. Beil nächsten Mal Köln würde ich gerne wieder hier wohnen!
Sehr nette und schlichte Wohnung in einer ruhigen Seitenstraße in Ehrenfeld. Mit der Gastgeberin sehr nette und unkomplizierte Kommunikation. Alles top.
Above all, this flat is cool and spacious. We had a great time staying here and Anke and her brother's recommendations really made our visit special.
The flat itself is wonderful to stay in with a comfy bed, well-equipped kitchen and relaxing living room.
Die Wohnung ist super ausgestattet, sehr sauber und liegt in einer ruhigen Seitenstraße mitten in Ehrenfeld. Einkaufmöglichkeiten, Bäcker, Tram und U-Bahn sind in Laufweite – für uns die perfekte Wahl und unbedingt weiterzuempfehlen.

About the Host, Anke
I came to Cologne for my first job over 15 years ago - and I still love this city (except maybe during the Carnival season ;-). I like reading (the latest Paulo Cuelho is absolutely great, just finished it), traveling, skiing and cooking, and if you are very lucky there might be an invitation to dinner. I live in the same house where the flat is, so no problem if you need anything.
