Thanks for a nice stay in Augsberg! Benedikt is a nice host and all communication was perfect and very straightforward. The flat is very central which is great. Only thing I would mention as a non smoker is that it’s a smoker’s flat and everything has a smokey smell.
Response from Benedikt:
Again, thanks for staying at my place. I know that the smoking issue is not that comfy and am working on a good fix - eg not smoking in my flat. ;-) Best wishes!
Staying in the flat for just one night. Very charming old place, and had everything we needed. Benedikt was very welcoming and had even put complimentary water, juice and beer in the fridge for us to enjoy. Great stay, great host and a very central location.
Unfortunately, due to circumstances out of our control we were unable to stay at Benedikt's place, but he was still a great host. He kept in constant contact with us in the days prior to our scheduled stay and was understanding and sympathetic to our situation when we had to cancel at the last minute. We look forward to rescheduling our trip and staying at his place in the near future!
Our stay at Benedikt's was very good. Good internet access, and the location cannot be beat. The flat is cozy, but you should be aware of something: I myself am a cat lover, so I loved having Barkley around. But if you choose to have him stay, be aware that as any other cat, he is nocturnal and likes to walk around for a couple hours, so if you are a light sleeper and you want to get a full night's sleep, it may be a problem. Other than that, this is a really great place to stay!
My stay at Benedickt's place was fantastic. He is an excellent host--quick to respond to emails, and very helpful. He provided recommendations on where to eat and what do do, and did a little grocery shopping (which was very nice).
The apartment is very well located in Augsburg, right in the historic center of town, off a cute little cobblestone street, and has all the amenities one would want for an easy stay. The grocery store is a 5 minute walk, and the train station is a 15 min walk. It is a cozy place, so if you're really tall (like over 6'3"), you might find the ceilings a tad low. For everyone else, though, it's fine.
I would certainly recommend staying at Benedikt's apartment.
We had a good stay at Benedikt's place. He was there waiting for us by the door to show us the place and give us all sorts of information about Augsburg.
He has a cute cat that will be super happy to have your company and play with you. (and yes he will jump on the bed to sleep with you :)
The flat is conveniently located in the heart of Augsburg and it's very easy to go anywhere from there. If you have a car you can easily find a parking spot in a street not so far away from the flat (I can't remember the name but Benedikt will certainly let you know) .
The kitchen is well equipped with everything you will need to prepare your meals.
An important note for non smokers and people with allergies: as the flat is a smoking environment it smells quite a lot; and because of the cat Barkley the windows cannot be fully opened. Therefore the apartment can get quite stuffy with a smoky smell.
We really enjoyed our 3 day stay in Benedikt's apartment. There are three fantastic reasons to stay here: the location can't be beat, the WiFi is really fast and Barclay the cat is awesome. Benedikt was super friendly and provided some welcoming beer and chocolate and gave us advice on places to eat and drink etc. If you are not a cat person, you may want the cat to go with Benedikt. Barclay is a great cat, but it's his house and your attention is required. He's very cute, loving and playful though. We had a great time with him. Also, this is not a smoke free apartment (which does bother some people). The apartment is a great size for 2 people and located just behind the Rathaus right in the center of the oldest part of the city. The Italian place around the corner (Trieste) has delicious food and is not terribly expensive. It has a fabulous outdoor terrace over a canal. We also loved the food at the Ratskellar which also was inexpensive.
benedikt and his girlfriend they were just perfect guests! Nice friendly and very funny I enjoyed to have them at the house! I wish they can stay more next time!!!!
Awesome dude and best guest ever - Thank you !!!
