Een weekend Keulen werd mede door het verblijf bij Hao heel fijn. De kamer was gezellig en schoon. De bedden comfortabel. De badkamer als uit het VT- wonen tijdschrift, perfect. Het appartement was zeer groot en Hao was erg gastvrij. De ligging is perfect, als we een cijfer moeten geven is het een 10.
Actually, we was disappointed about this accommodation.
Fortunately, this time was just a fast visit in the city with one night stay.
The good things :
- the location was very easy and central, near a Christmas market and easy to find and the view is great.
- the bedroom was in order and clean and the apartment is decorated with some kind of zen design.
- is more cheaper than a room in a hotel
The disappointed things :
- we try to contact Hao according to plan during the day without reply, finally we decide to bell on the door.
- on place, we receive a very fast and rude presentation about the place from a lady claiming than they have many work.
- we don't receive the room than we book but the lady disappear in her private area before I try to explain the situation (but now I can see than this room is not more available to rent).
- we never more have contact with somebody, they where there because we could hear them in the corridor but they avoid us (I was go out of the bathroom and I see Hao past quickly in his private area without consideration).
Details we don't like :
- the sheets are in synthetic (we are very uncomfortable with this detail) with a light cover, in a twin bed (we booked a double bed) and the heating are not enough for the room so I was very cold during the night.
- on a paper in the wall, we see "tea and coffee are free - bottle of water : 1.5€", we find a senseo in the room without fresh water, cup and melk, 2 clean glasses without free water (even in the kitchen the tap water was close, I was oblige to go to bathroom) and no kettle for tea or for my water bottle. so the offer was not interesting.
- in the bathroom you can find a big red carpet to past to the toilet, it's dirty because every body can walk on it with his shoes. And a small carpet on front of the shower with mites (I'm too sensitive with this). It's detail with my own opinion, maybe I'm too manic ?
Upon departure, we go out without any contact worse than a hotel.
We was happy to just stay one night.
Finally, we was very surprise of this place because the other comments are very different relative with your experience.
Why are we an exception ?
We feel uncomfortable inside seems we was unwelcome.
So, the place was not horrible but we will don't recommend it to our friends and we will go in a other place next time.

Hao's accommodations were absolutely top-notch! Excellent facilities in his apartment, including a large bathroom and kitchen, and most importantly, a spacious room with comfy beds.
On top of that, the location is perfect - sightseeing, food and shopping is all within a 10-15 minute walk! Loved it and would highly recommend it to anyone who's interested in visiting Cologne :)
I had an excellent stay at Hao's house. The apartment is huge with great views and closeby restaurants. It was quiet and we slept like babies. It is very close to the most interesting nightlife Cologne can offer. Hao is an excellent host. I would definitely stay back at his place.
Nice stay, nice place, nice host.
Highly recommended !!!
Hao ist ein sehr freundlicher Gastgeber und wir hatten ein tolles Zimmer im Herzen von Köln. Sowohl die Ankunft, die Übergabe der Schlüssel und die Abreise haben prima geklappt. Meine Tochter und ich werden beim nächsten Köln-Besuch gern wieder bei Hao wohnen. Vielen Dank für die angenehme Atmosphäre......
Nice room with some fancy design in the house, especially the bathroom! I should get that size and comfortable bathroom at my house too, ha! The place is very convenient. For someone who just landed in Germany very first time of her life, it's just perfectly located!! Host's friend invited me in at the front door, I felt like home already:) room is clean with my own toilet. I didn't see the cute bears or flowers on my bed(ha), but I love the fresh smell of bed sheet!! It's slightly over my budget but with the quality, totally worth it!! Definitely recommend to everyone :)
