My wife and I plus my two children stayed here over the Christmas period and had a delightful stay.
Philippa and her family live upstairs and we shared an entrance front door but had a perfectly private 2 rooms plus kitchen bathroom and toilet area downstairs.
It's about 5 minutes in a tram from the centre of town and a short walk from there to the apartment.
It was clean and homely and philippa was a delightful person able to advise you on all things local.
Shops are nearby but it's good to note the hours are different to say Sydney Australia. Locally, some close at 5 on a Saturday and all day Sunday.
A lovely new gas stove had just been installed when we arrived which we used to cook most of our meals while there for 8 nights.
Towels are supplied so all you need is your luggage and a box of groceries and you are set up.
We enjoyed our stay immensely and can recommend to fellow travellers.
+ The accommodation is the complete ground floor of a house, with a shared front door and hallway. Good value for sociable people, who will appreciate the friendly (though not noisy or intrusive) household. The neighbourhood is quaint and safe. A short trip from the Altstadt by public transport (about 5 tram stops), or 30 minutes on foot. The nearby restaurants are good, and not overpriced or touristy. Good washing machine, dishwasher and fridge-freezer. Mattresses are new, foam rather than inner-sprung. Fast, free wifi. Close to extensive forest walks. Shops include an organic grocer and a Lidl supermarket. The landlady has an interesting life-story, and speaks fluent English.
- The accommodation is not for people who want complete seclusion or who require a pristine modern decor.
