About this listing
Lovely & quiet apartment, to recover from nightlife, sightseeing & shopping - which is all within walking distance! I'm a host who is dedicated to hospitality, assisting you anyway I can (see references!). Enjoy your stay in Hamburg! :-D
Welcome to our apartment!
Would you like to be hosted in Hamburg and yet maintain as much flexibility as possible? Do you generally prefer staying with real people instead of the anonymity of hotels? Would you like a map and directions to discover probably the most beautiful city in germany? ...I daresay staying in the apartment of a tourist-guide could be helpful.
The guestroom in our apartment offers you a comfortable 140x200 couch-bed and a single-person wooden bed. You will have all the privacy in your room and free access to our wifi. We have a small (!) bathroom with a shower and you should not mind that we have our towels and toothbrushes in there, too ;-) Of course, we provide fresh bed linen. If you need shampoo, please ask for it. We are always interested in improving our guest room, so your feedback is very welcome.
Some of my favorite restaurants and cafés are a stone throw away, and a popular flea market specialized on antique stuff takes place every saturday - just down the street. As you can see from our reviews, our neighborhood has its own unique character and is worth discovering.
All in all,
the location here is outstanding for travelers that like to be able to explore Hamburg per pedes (by foot). And secondly, we enjoy living here very much - and we will do our best that you feel at home in Hamburg, too.
You can use our kitchen, too.
Smoking is possible in the backyard garden.
You can use the city bicycles to pedal around town.
Interaction with Guests
I may have a busy schedule. However, I take the time to share what i know about the city and give recommendations - if you like me to do so. In many instances I've joined my guests in one of the restaurants around the corner for dinner and whenever i cook it's usually for 4-6 people anyways ;-)
ALMOST EVERYTHING IS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE.
The apartment is situated near the exhibition halls (messehallen), entrance south. Across the street you can enter the park area 'Planten un Blomen'. We are located in Sternschanze/St.Pauli which is close to the harbor, St. Michaelis Church, University of Hamburg, the Alster, Shopping at Jungfernstieg/Gänsemarkt, the Historic District.
CHARACTERISTIC FOR MY NEIGHBORHOOD? ...alternative, non-mainstream, second-hand & creative shops, surrounded by parks, variety of restaurants and cafés, weekly flea-market for antiques, in walking distance of magic water fountains each night during the summer, close to reeperbahn/st.pauli,… some graffiti, art galleries, close to "gängeviertel"...
If you ever get tired of walking - we have a great public transportation system that gets you everywhere else in no time. Closest stations:
U2 Messehallen (6min to central station),
112 & 36 busses (15-20min to elbe beach),
3 bus (10min o neue flora for musicals)
Other Things to Note
I always appreciate it when guests write a sentence or two about the purpose of their stay or what they'd like to do here. Just to get an idea…
PLEASE LET ME KNOW THE TIME OF YOUR ARRIVAL 2-3 days beforehand. I do not have a fixed check-in time, because i try to meet your travel itinerary if i possibly can.
Please respect that we have our everyday schedules too - so if you like to party all night, try not to disturb our sleep when you get back home. Our neighbors will appreciate your considerateness, too. This is self-explanatory i guess.
There is no smoking in the house, but you are welcome to use the ashtray and to smoke in the backyard garden.
Since it is small bathroom, please open the window when you shower and we really appreciate if you use the slider afterwards to remove the water from the shower walls. That helps to keep the bathroom dry, and you can help to save water for the environment by not showering longer than you need to.
Thanks for regarding this. If you have any questions feel free to ask!
