Fergal and Helen made us very welcome to their lovely apartment, which was so well equipped. They had kindly filled the fridge with milk bread and beer as our flight had been delayed . Fergal also came to greet us and was very informative and enthusiastic and really wanted us to enjoy Cologne. There was city maps ,guide books.. really anything we could need, which made the weekend very enjoyable. The apartment was close to all local transport and very central for all the museums and the centre. After a long day walking in the city it was lovely to get back to this lovely warm apartment and relax, watch a dvd or sit on the small balcony with a
a nice cold German beer. Very Relaxing. Helen brought us a lovely basket of Chocolate eggs to celebrate Easter. We hope to get back at some time and would definitely recommend this apartment .
Lovely little flat, convenient for the cathedral. Pleasant hostess, who kindly let us stay an extra half day to leave our luggage.
Highly recommend the Claudius therme baths in cologne which are a half an hour walk away.
What a cozy little place! Helen's husband was there to meet us and gave us a great overview of Cologne. This place had everything we needed and we liked that it was just outside the hustle and bustle of downtown Cologne. The little local neighbourhood was friendly and had everything we needed. The hosts also left us water, juice, yogurt, coffee and all the essentials. Would definitely stay again.
Helen and Fergal are extremely kind hosts! They are very delicate and nice people, the apartment is really clean and has all needed facilities. As we arrived on Sunday and all supermarkets were closed, they arranged some eggs, milk and other stuff for breakfast, and that was really sweet and caring.
I would strongly recommend this apartment both for visitors of Anuga trade fair (around 10 min walk) and for travelers (city center in a walk distance).
Очень милые хозяева, прекрасно говорящие по-русски, имея ирландские корни и при этом упоминая в разговоре Достоевского и Пушкина. Квартира действительно чистая, уютный балкон, постоянно пели птицы. За последние 8 лет ежегодного посещения Кельна по работе это едва не лучшее место по расположению к Ануге (выставке) + к центру пешком действительно очень близко. Рядом булочная, супермаркеты, аптеки. Мы остались очень довольны этой квартирой!
Cute apartment by the bridge in a quire neighbourhood. Very pleasant apartment and a nice place to stay.
I strong recommend this place, we had a great time there, Helen's husband was very nice and gave us nice and important tips from the city! The apartment is about 10 minutes from a train station which goes to the airport,Dusseldorf, Boon... and there are supermarkets and restaurants nearby!
You can walk to the cathedral, about 20 minutes,very nice walk thou :)
The apartment is exactly as it shows, they left us bread,milk,cheese,eggs and more :) so you can have a breakfast for start your day :) Thank you very much for everything ;)
It was already the second time when we stay at Helen's apartment and we are absolutely happy again. Great location, big and comfortable apartment and a very nice host.
We had a wonderful stay in the apartment, which was equipped just as described. We were warmly welcomed by Fergal, who was very friendly and helpful - a perfect host. The fridge and cupboards were equipped with some basics, which we were very grateful for and we were even able to use the apartment several hours longer. I can highly recommend to stay at this place!
This apartment was wonderful. The location was quiet and close to everything you need, including wonderful bakeries. The hosts Fergal and Helen couldn't be more helpful, they left a starter pack in the fridge, answered all our questions, and let us check out late as we had a late flight. I could not fault them or the apartment. Everything was clean and stylish. It was great - we can't wait to go back.
A lovely apartment conveniently located. Fits a family of 4 comfortably.
very nice group, left the apartment spotless.
Helen booked the apartment for a few day break away form the city and to experience the nature of the Black Forest. She was very nice, friendly and easy to communicate with. Having a small child that is now crawling and investigating his surroundings there were a few concerns that he may pull some things over on himself but we got it sorted out as best as we could. Glad you had a nice stay guys!
Helen and husband were perfect guests.
Lovely people, too.
Helen was one of the first guests to book the flat and by the moment she got the record for the longer stay. A very nice, respectful and clean guest. Hope she will come back someday!
