The apartment is ideally placed for the city centre and underground [10 minute walk]. The kitchen is well equipped and has everything you need. The bedrooms are spacious and the mattresses are so comfortable. The bathroom had a super size shower and there was a washing machine and dryer available too. The apartment is in a peaceful residential area and we all slept very well. We would be pleased to recommend this apartment to any of our friends and we would certainly be pleased to stay there again.

Very clean and modern - had everything we needed. Lots of room, and kitchen well equipped. Owner is very friendly and helpful, and speaks English. Great places to eat and drink all around, with local shops and supermarkets very close. From the airport, just take the underground (U2 line) , and after 15 minute journey, it's simple as walking out the metro Station (Plärra), cross the road and you are there. Could not be easier. Don't worry if you arrive late on a Sunday (like we did about 9pm) as there are great places for a takeaway, and local restaurants just next door and across the road / all around really. Would highly recommend.

The apartment itself had all the requirements needed including kitchen utensils, toilet rolls and towels. The reason for our stay was to exhibit at the Spielwarenmesse Toy fair this was only 10 minutes away by taxi. There is a Lidl and Netto supermarket in walking distance which was very convenient for groceries and essentials. The owners are very friendly and helpful, would highly recommend.
