The duplex apartment is located in the popular Friesenviertel neighborhood in the city center but still quiet and the ideal base to explore the city. Everything you may need is very close by or around the corner.
I am very flexible with check-in and check-out times, so simply tell me what times suit you best and we will work out a solution.
Cologne central station (Köln HBF): 3min with metro line 5 or 7€ by taxi
Cologne trade fair (Koelnmesse): 8min with metro line 1 or 15€ by taxi
The apartment has underfloor heating, is completely open-plan designed and very bright due to the large window façades.
There are three Hi-Fi audio systems with wireless sound (via AirPlay Apple AirPort Express) so you can listen to music in fantastic quality everywhere. Wi-Fi & DSL flat-rate are there, too.
Around the corner is everything you might wish for, shopping and drug stores, clubs, restaurants, bars, cafes, REWE supermarket (open until 11pm), etc.
In the sleeping room is a queen size bed for two people (140x200cm). Optionally, one person can sleep on the very big couch (280x235cm). The Bedroom faces the peaceful courtyard, so you can sleep with the windows open.
The kitchen is fully equipped with stove, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, rice cooker, espresso cooker, blender, indoor barbecue grill, etc.
I have a 60" Full HD Plasma TV which can be controlled via HDMI and Apple Mini DisplayPort connectors. However, there is no television broadcasting.
The whole flat is all your's and you may use everything you would offer your guests in your own home, too.
It is really important to me, that you feel at home. Whether you use towels, shampoo, milk, spices, eggs, oil, butter, tea, coffee or candles, take a drink from my minibar, use hangers and my wardrobe to hang your clothes up, etc. – please make yourself comfortable.
Since I don't charge a cleaning fee, I expect my guests to treat my home as if it is their own and to leave it clean and tidy so I feel at home too, when I come back :)

Другие важные подробности
If you are into sports, ask me, I might have something for you, e.g. I got lots of equipment for skateboarding, speedminton, ping pong, basketball, yoga.
I'm also into gymnastics and fitness/bodybuilding, I got some dumbbells, mini-parallettes, a climbing rope and there are hooks on my ceiling where you can hang up gymnastics rings to do a full upper body workout with dips, pullups, rows and pushups.
And for you coffee lovers out there:
a) I have an electric mocca/espresso brewer. There are espresso beans which you can grind with a special grinding cap you can put on my mixer. The cap is in the cupboard on the right side of my oven. The coarseness should be not too fine.
b) I also have a cold brew carafe. There are crema coffee beans for the cold brew as well. The coarseness needs to be very rough. I use two times the max fill of the grinding cap. Pour the grinded coffee in the filter, fill the carafe with cold water and put it in the fridge for ca. 12 hours. You can drink the coffee cold or heat it in the microwave. It tastes either way very delicious!
