Not Really two bedrooms as one bed is in the living space and the other person has to cross through to reach the bathroom, which is disturbing in the night. Mr Silberman was very nice and welcomed us properly and was helpful. We would recommend a non-slip mat in rhe shower cubicle. Overall though we really enjoyed our stay.

The owner has been supportive and always responsive. The neighbourhood is really pleasant: if you want to take a walk you'll find lots of green around and really nice houses to look at. Hamburg's weather is quite humid and rainly (at least it was when we were there, in August), and the apartment is at ground level: however, humidity has never been an issue since the owner provided two dehumidifiers that we left running when we were outside (they're quite noisy). For groceries, there's a largish mall 3 minutes away, and in general there are several shops and supermarkets within the area, plus an open-stall market two times a week. Of course (this is Germany after all) on Sunday everything is closed so plan carefully your shopping...! Finally, a really well-functioning suburban railway connects the Rahlstedt area of Hamburg (where the apartment is located) to the central railway station, and back, every 30 minutes (also on weekends). Since the Rahlstedt train station is 5 minutes from the apartment (10 if you're slow) and the Hauptbahnhof is right in the center of Hamburg, reaching it is easy and also quick (the train takes someting like 15 minutes). All in all, we have been very happy with this apartment.
