Nice and clean

5 of 5
We came for Documenta and stayed in the appartment for three days. The appartment was very clean and neat and the owner was very helpful. It takes about 15 to 20 minutes to get to Documenta halle from the appartment (by feet or public transport), but the area is nice and calm.
