Great Property

5 of 5
Lovely renovation, modern, clean, beautiful view of the river from the balcony, also a patio and sauna. Bathrooms modern with good strong showers. Long table in main area for family meals. Two of the bedrooms are joined, so best for a family. Overall very welcoming and with good facilities.

Very well-equipped Apartment

5 of 5
I am a student in Bad Honnef. I rented the apartment for my father and sister who were visiting me for a few days. I requested for the apartment two days before, but Dr. Wagner was very prompt with his response. He was also very welcoming and hospitable. The apartment was perfect. My guests enjoyed the place. Equipped with all essentials and more. The apartment s very cosy and even has a binder with instructions on how to use everything in the apartment, which was really helpful. I have nothing negative to say about the apartment. Would definitely contact Dr. Wagner again for my future visitors.
