Beside a small park the new renovated (September 2012) flat is located in the third floor (USA 4th floor, no elevator) to the inner green courtyard (usually silent at night) of this old "Gruenderzeit-house" (2,90 m ceiling height). From the central station you walk 9 minutes, to the next underground (Ebertplatz) and to the river Rhine it is only 3 minutes, to the Cathedral (Dom) 12 minutes.
All shops for the daily needs are very conveniently situated: around the street-corner you find 2 bakeries (also open on Sunday morning) a kiosk (open daily until 09:00pm), a small grocer's shop and a laundry/dry cleaning store and restaurants.
Within 3 minutes you reach the lively and popular areas of "Eigelstein" and "Agnesviertel" with lots of bars and restaurants and supermarkets (Rewe, open Mo-Fr from 07am until midnight, Sa until 10pm).
To the new combined ice rink and swimming pool (with sauna) "Lentpark" you walk ca. 10 minutes.
The flat is fully equiped with tv, free wifi (DSL 50.000), a kitchen unit including a Nespresso-machine and bedlinen and towels. There is one bed in 160 x 200 cm and a bed couch in 140 x 200 cm. You can also have an addtional babybed
(Hauck Reisebett Dream'n Play 60x120 cm). A washingmachine and a dryer are in the cellar (with 50-Cent coins).
The main station (Köln Hbf) you reach within 10 minutes (walking distance), the next tram station is „Ebertplatz“ (lines 12 and 15, 16 and 18).
You can park your car in the Clever Str, but only where the park begins and on the following side. You get the tickets (€ 4.- per day and available for up to seven days) in the machines. Right in front of the house it is very expensive (one hour for € 3.- maximum 4 hours). You can rent bicycles from „Radstation“ (in front of the main station, Breslauer Platz - (email hidden)), € 10 per day, 3 days € 20.-, 7 days € 40.-
My friend Thomas, who offers also apartments in the same house (since Sept. 2011 with airbnb) will manage your requests. If available you could rent three flats in the same house.
