It is light, spacious, clean and comfortable; the decor is modern, as are all the facilities. The owners are very helpful, and everything went smoothly. It's in a quiet residential location, looking out onto a large (shared) garden at the back. Bus stops with easy access to the centre, the station, ferries etc. are very close. Bakeries and supermarkets are within easy walking distance, as is Schreven Park with its lake and water birds. If we come back to Kiel another time, we will gladly stay here again.

We hired bikes and rode in and out of Kiel, to the beaches at Laboe and also into the countryside. For a change it was easy to self cater since the apartment was very well equipped.The owner was really helpful and we had a wonderful time. We will strongly recommend to friends.
