Any queries were answered swiftly. Although it is near a 'main' road the appartment was very, very quiet if the windows were closed. Even open, the noise was never a problem. (I only mention this as some other reviews found this a problem, we never did.) Shops and local train stations were a little walk away but was not a major problem either. 10+ minute walk maybe. Walking to Ohlsdorf station was along the river Alster and is quite pleasant. I would definitely recommend this appartment and would stay again.
