The apartment is very comfortable and well-equipped, and we were given an extremely friendly welcome, which included a bottle of wine sitting on the kitchen table for us. Daniela communicated quickly and efficiently with us before our arrival, and the check-in process was very straightforward. Volksdorf itself is a very pleasant suburb of Hamburg, with shops, restaurants and an excellent market on Saturday mornings. There is a forest just a few minutes' walk away from the apartment. It takes about 30 minutes to travel from the Volksdorf U Bahn station to central Hamburg, and walking to the station takes about 25 minutes.
One thing to note is that on the HomeAway listing for this apartment there is a section in German under the heading 'Additional pricing information' which says that bed linen and towels are provided at a cost of 7.50 Euros per person, and that final cleaning is either done by yourself or at a cost of 40 Euros. This is not stated anywhere in the English part of the listing. I am sure that this is just an error, but it is as well to be aware of these extra costs.
Overall this is a very nice quiet place to stay in the Hamburg area.
We had a great holiday in Hamburg in this fantastic little house. The accommodation was comfortable and clean and had everything that we wanted. The kitchen was well equipped. We were lucky with the weather so sitting in the garden, early in the morning and late in the evening, was lovely. It was well situated for transport links into the city.
