Beautiful maisonette with massive rooftop terrace in registered building from late 1900s. Right in the Northern city center, 850m to cathedral & central station, but in a quiet, small street. Two floors, fully equipped kitchen, hammock, lots of natural light, fast WiFi. 4thfloor!
Maisonette on two open plan floors with large rooftop terrace and pretty dormer windows. Wooden floors, white staircase, beams and kitchen.
One bedroom with queensize bed upstairs, convertible couch for two more guests on the lower floor, two extra mattresses for the fifth and sixth guest if needed.
Beautiful registered old building, the flat is on the fourth floor though and as most old buildings in Germany, it doesn't have an elevator, so witness your fitness! The terrace and the view will make up for this though, promised.
Walking distance to the cathedral, the central station (train to the airport: 11 minutes) and Cologne's famous museums; the trade fair is just on the other side of the river.
The area, Eigelsteinviertel, is one of the oldest parts of Cologne, used for glassworks by the romans more than 2000 years ago.
You'll have the whole place for yourself. Fully equipped kitchen. Fresh bedsheets and towels provided. Mattress measures 200 x 140 cm, 193 x 130 cm and two times 200 x 90 cm. Bathroom with shower. Hairdryer. Kitchen table and a little extra desk to get work done. Outdoor table, chairs and hammock on the terrace. No TV because we don't watch TV and don't like having one around, there's a record player instead. Music! No washing machine either, but launderette close by (if you go there bring a chair, the place is great for people watching).
For any specific extras you need, please just ask. We can't do miracles as they say in German, but will try to provide everything our guests need!
Please take of your shoes, sit down on the toilet and smoke only on the terrace.
For long-term stays - anything between 2 and 6 months - please ask for discounts.
Hanna is traveling a lot but Mattes is in Cologne most of the time, so most likely you'll get to meet Mattes in person, while Hanna handles most communication from on the way.
We're both at reach for our guests at any time!
Regarding check in and check out, we try to make all sorts of hours happen, but do need a few hours for cleaning between bookings - just ask and we'll see what we can do.
We're both interested in music, sound, architecture, places, stunning views, ideas, structure and functionality of stuff that surrounds us, random new things - and people, especially those who are passionate about something in their very own way.
We're very good friends and both travelled a lot for work and for pleasure, and after having had great experiences with AirBnB as guests around the world, decided to share Hanna's small, beautiful and a little unusual place too, and rent it out when she's away - which as of now is almost all the time.
In addition to that, we're helping a friend and rent out the beautiful maisonette he moved out of as well, until a new person moves in.
Mattes is in Cologne a lot at the moment, so if you come while Hanna isn't there you'll probably meet him!
