This was a very comfortable and relaxing stay in Munich, and Dimitri was just a whatsapp message away to answer any queries. Really recommend staying here as both the apartment and host are great, and the access to the city centre is very convenient. 10/10!!!

The Sauna was a delight but that was not the highlight really as the overall ambiance of the place was spot on and made us feel extremely at ease from the moment we walked in. Communication with Thomas was simple and efficient - any queries I had were immediately sorted and our arrival / departure was seamless making the whole experience a relaxing and enjoyable one. Thank you very much.
