We chose to book with Mr. Malik because of the number of great reviews he had received from his guests. Communication was great right from the start, he always provided very helpful and detailed information with the intent of making our travel less stressful. He genuinely went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and at home in Colmar. He was there in less than half an hour when we needed help. He kindly picked us up and even dropped us off at the train station. After he gave us an orientation of the apartment, he introduced us to the neighbour and then took us around town to show us around so we know where everything is located including the market, the grocery, the bakery and the village wine stores. He was very organized, he's thought of every little detail and possible information that someone new in town could possibly need not just maps, bus schedules, tourist information and restaurant recommendations but even provided wine, orange juice, cold water, coffee, ice and basic things that exhausted and jet-lagged travellers like us needed to get us going. He's probably the best host we've met.
The apartment: We've used AirBNB in most of our travels in various countries, we've never seen a cleaner and more organized apartment than Mr. Malik's place in Colmar. The kitchen appliances were brand new and well-cared for. As someone who loves to cook, I really appreciated the well-equipped and well-organized kitchen. There is lot of space so if you are a family travelling together you won't feel crowded. The building is old but the apartment is very modern. There is a television but in a beautiful place like Colmar, you won't need it at all. Very fast wi-fi, which was great. In terms of location, the apartment is right in the centre of town, walking distance to everything including the train station and a lovely 1 star Michelin restaurant called L'Atelier du Peintre.
Travel Tip: Colmar is truly beautiful and has a lot to keep you occupied but if you have time, don't miss Kayseberg, Riquiwhir or Haut-Koenigsburg castle. Bike or hike the route des vines. If you really want to be adventurous, take the 40 minute bus trip to Breisach and then catch the train to Freiburg in Germany. Strasbourg is 24 minutes away. Basel, Switzerland is 45 minutes away by train and Lucerne is 1 hour away from Basel.
Malik was an incredibly friendly and helpful host, and really helped us settle in after a long trip to Colmar. He went out of his way to make us feel welcome and make sure we had all the information needed for the stay. The apartment was just as described, a charming place with friendly neighbours and very well located. It was generally very quiet, but very near the heart of the old town and well located for the train station too, as well as the shops, bars and restaurants of the city. We were made to feel very much at home during our stay. I would definitely recommend this flat to anyone looking for a stay in Colmar.
Le logement est très bien situé et le cadre est magnifique.
Malik est un hôte exceptionnel qui nous a tout de suite mis à l'aise.
Nous ne mettons que 5 étoiles car nous ne pouvons pas en mettre plus !
We had an amazing week staying here.
We were warmly welcomed and given all the information we needed about the apartment. We were very comfortable as the apartment is well equipped with everything you need. It is also beautifully decorated.
The location is great, you are right in the centre of town, with shops, restaurants and bakery right at the end of the street.
I would highly recommend staying here.
Our experience in lovely Colmar could not have been more perfect. The apartment was spacious, beautiful, thoughtfully furnished, and in the very center of old town. Malik was the perfect host, very thoughtful and willing to assist. He helped translate for my car rental and in general, made us feel very comfortable and welcome. My fiancée and I had a wonderful time and will certainly return for another visit. Thanks Malik for making everything memorable!
Idéalement situé, l'appartement est confortable et très bien équipé. Notre hôte est si gentil et serviable et son attention nous a touchée! Merci encore pour cet accueil. Colmar et l'Alsace nous ont ravis avec en prime un beau ciel bleu des Vosges .
We had stayed there for 9days at the begining of January. Winter of Colmar in France Alsase was little bit chilly, so holiday at there was not similar to vacation on the beach right on the equator. but when we come back to This flat from outside, it was always welcome us warmly as our wish.
The room was being straightened up for guest to stay comfortably. Of course, clean and tidy. Almost of all things were being equiped at there, especially for me, when I found a knife sharpener in the drawer, it was not inferior to god's blessing at all. sharpened knife is most important for cooking, I think, and this never changed even if I was in the foreign country. This is trifling, but may be important.
The host, Mr.Malik is who quick to notice everything. so, at any situations, our detailed requests were responded immediately. He is gentle, funny and friendly, but also, who respects guest's private time. Of all things, to meet nice host is our happy.
Colmar is small town in Alsase, but this place in the middle of calm vineyard is fits flexibly to travel in this area as you like. Also, We could visit near countrys (Germany and Switzerland) from here easily by using trains. Because this room was in good environment, and supported by marvelous host, so that our daily drastic tours were possibled. Thank you Malik, and Raurence.
In the last, we thank the ladies who were our 9days neighbors in this apartment. This apartment is being surrounded by beautiful silence, and in the night, from the room's window, can hear the young acoustic guitar sounds from the opposite window. Thank you for these days.
Haruko, Chiaki Takeda
