About this listing
We are offering a cosy room with balcony in an old residential building next to the Karli, a hotspot and pub and culture mile. We got fast WiFi and coffee ;-) The tramstop is around the corner and we have free street parking. The center is very close
Upon your arrival we will meet you and provide you with clean sheets and towels in our cosy guest room. During summer it's pleasantly cool in our apartment. During the warm month you can have breakfast on our nicely warm balcony.
A third person can sleep on a simple futon that we will put in the room when needed.
Despite it's location so close to the hotspot Karl-Liebknecht-Street (Karli) and it's close proximity to the trams the apartment is very quiet.
There is a bathroom with shower and our balcony, perfect for a sunny breakfast in the morning. Feel free to cook in our kitchen. You are welcome to use what cooking supplies and spices you can find, as well as coffee and tea. In case you need to you can also do some laundry. Of course you have access to our wifi. Our living room is open to our visitors most of the time and offers books, a flatscreen and a dinner table. Sometimes we are using the living room as an extra guest room.
Interaction with Guests
We also live in the apartment. We gladly help you find a nice cafe or the nearest bar as well as give you a tour of what to see in Leipzig. We can also simply make you a tea and have a little chat. Or you just get our key and follow your own planning :) We are looking forward to all our guests.
Our apartment is situated in Südvorstadt, a hotspot in Leipzig. We love it a lot cause it has great bars and restaurants, small cinemas and theaters. There is always something going on, mostly around the "Karli"-street.
The center is in easy reach (on foot it's a nice walk along many shops, bars, restaurants, open-air pubs and a cinema).
The walk to the tram station (HTWK) is less than a minute. From there it is only a short ride to the center, to the university or the main train station. In total there are 3 tram lines and 4 busses going close to our house and also a Nightliner bus. To the Monument to the Battle of the Nations it is only 5 minutes. To Plagwitz and Alte Spinnerei you can take a bus. Free street parking is always available infront of our house or the neighboring houses.
Other Things to Note
TEA / COFFEE
In our Kitchen you will find a selection of teas as well as an espresso/coffee maker - feel free to serve yourself here.
INTERNET / WIFI
Of course we have WiFi with fast internet that you can use for free.
There is free street parking. You will always find a spot directly infront of the house or the neighboring houses.
RENT A BICYCLE
You can rent a bike from the nearby bike rental station (24/7), you just have to register in advance online. They also offer a 24 hour rate. The Südvorstadt and actually the whole city is very bicycle friendly. There are nice bicycle routes from our area through the park to Plagwitz, the center or the lakes (beaches).
PARK / LAKE
The park and the forest for jogging or cycling you can reach in 5 minutes. The Cospuden lake is also very close to our apartment. It's Leipzig's nicest lake. You can have a swim there or enjoy a meal or a cocktail at the pier, or just sit in the beer garden and have a local beer and smoked trout.
There aren't many rules, only this: Smoking is only allowed on the balcony. And please inform us in advance about additional guests. We want you to have a pleasant stay so please ask us if you have any problems that we can help with.
Sehr angenehmen und nette Gastgeber! Es gab zur Begrüßung gleich einen Tee und viele gute Tipps, toll aufbereitet auf einer Karte, von denen wir einige umgesetzt haben. Zimmer und Lage waren top, wir hatten ein schönes Wochenende und waren rundum zufrieden! Vielen Dank!!
Schöne Wohnung, gute Lage, und das Beste sind die tollen Gastgeber! Danke an Felix und Svetlana für die vielen Tipps, ich habe sie fast alle ausprobiert!
We had a great stay with Svetlana and Felix. They are sweet and kind people, and although we arrived quite late after a nice dinner on the Karli they still sat together with us to chat and introduce us to great places in Leipzig. Their place is in a great neighbourhood, with restaurants, cafe's, food shops and bike rentals close by. You can reach the historic city centre quickly by both bike and tram (or by foot if you want). The room is cozy, the bathroom big, the kitchen has all the appliances you need you need and the balcony invites the guests to stay and relax. Thanks for the great stay guys:)
Svetlana hat uns herzlich begrüßt.
Auf dem Balkon gab's sehr hilfreiche Tipps: in welchem See man am besten baden kann, welche Ausstellungen es zu sehen gibt und welches Straßenfest sehenswert ist ... und das man im "Hotel Seeblick" weder Hotel noch Seeblick findet, auf jeden fall aber leckeres (u.a veganes) Essen. Daher haben wir das nette Angebot der Küchen-Mitnutzung nicht wahrgenommen – dafür den allmorgentlichen Kaffee auf dem Balkon sehr genossen.
Die Wohnung selbst liegt zentral in einem lebendigen Viertel und ist doch sehr ruhig in einer Seitenstraße gelegen.
Absolut zu empfehlen!
Felix and Svetlana were awesome hosts! They were happy to chat with us about things to do in Leipzig both before and during our visit, and have a great knowledge of the area. The room was great and the location was perfect if you want to experience Leipzig beyond the city center--and being a block from the tram stop made getting to the rest of the city (including the Bahnhof) super easy. This was our first airbnb experience and it really exceeded our expectations.
Svetlana and Felix have been some of the most enjoyable, welcoming and genuine hosts I have had so far on Airbnb. They did me a huge favor and accepted my reservation at a later hour in the evening due to a prior issue with another accommodation. Once I arrived, we sat down over a few glasses of wine and talked about our travel experiences and they provided me with a bunch of information on seeing the city complete with personal recommendations for sight seeing and dining. I wish I had more time to get to know them but I would definitely look to stay with them again if I ever found myself in Leipzig!
My stay at Svetlana and Felix was great! The house is beautiful, very comfortable and clean, just like you see on the photos. The apartment is easy to reach with the tram, and the area is really nice with plenty of cafes and restaurants. Felix sat down and recomended me plenty of things to do in Leipzig and in the neighbourhood, and was very welcoming and helpful. I would 100% recommend staying with them.
