About this listing
Spacious private room (up to 3 pers.) with own bath and garden. Pleasant hosts (non-smokers, vegetarians) share kitchen/dining. Quiet & leafy district, near fairground, Musical Hall, Hohenheim University. Parking, sat TV, Wi-Fi, guest website.
Perfect for guests who like to get wakened in the morning by birds twitter (instead of traffic noise), who have a car (parking space provided) or who want to get downtown easily by bus + subway (total 20 mins), or also want to be at the fairground, at the Musical Hall or at the University of Hohenheim within short time (6/12 mins by car), and for those who perhaps in the evening like to share not only the apartment but also a glass of wine with us.
We live in a spacious two-storey flat at a slope. The open entrance, living, dining and kitchen space at the street level with a beautiful view to the garden is shared by the host and the guests. Circular stairs (we’ll give you a hand with the luggage) are leading down to the garden level, where the flat is divided into two separate parts, one for the guests, one for the hosts; each part having its own private quarter with bedroom and attached bathroom.
Your spacious room (22 sqm) is provided with a bunk bed, a double bed on the lower level (1.40 x 2.00 m) and a single bed on the top (0.90 x 1.90 m), head clearance to the ceiling 70/80 cm. There is also a desk with a private phone (individual phone number, flat rates to European, North American and Australian landlines). In addition, there is a free Wi-Fi for your laptop, which could be connected to the LCD TV set (international Sat TV and radio channels). A small suite containing a sofa, armchairs and a coffee table also make the stay in your private area cosy and comfortable. Your bath room has a large tub / shower and toilet. The sheets and towels are included. You have direct access from your room to your own private patio with a lovely garden; garden furniture is also provided.
Electric kettle and tee / coffee maker and coffee available; you can prepare your breakfast / meals in the kitchen (shared fridge). As breakfast is not included and will be provided by us only according to agreement, we also provide a list with excellent breakfast facilities in the neighbourhood.
Interaction with Guests
This is no hotel or hostel; we just rent this one guest room. The main purpose is meeting people from all over the world, who are open to the idea of “belong anywhere” and apartment-sharing. We are looking forward to meeting you and to have a chat with you in the kitchen and the living room, whereas the garden level with bedroom and private bath room is completely separate. During our “temporary flat share” all should feel comfortable, kindly complete your profile prior to booking and present yourself with text and photo. If you are just looking for a discount accommodation, we suggest looking somewhere else. The room is not suitable for long-term rent (or for strong smokers), as we need it by ourselves regularly.
