Roland and Walter are very gracious and extremely generous hosts - cold spring water and a perfectly chllled German wine in the fridge upon arrival. The apartment is in an excellent location with lots of great restaurants - all suggestions from Roland and Walter. The apartment is well equipped, beautifully decorated with lovely design features and has a nice balcony overlooking a cathedral almost next door and several others in the distance. Cologne is a beautiful city!

Great apartment and location. Everything is so easy from the start, its very modern, clean and has all you could need. Better than a hotel and easily accessible to the Messe. Located near some great restaurants. If I am visiting again this place would be top of my list.

This apartment is a whole new level of airbnb hospitality. Everything is absolutely perfect. They have a guide :D Good furniture, awesome shower, comfortable bed, coffee machine. Walter and Roland are so kind. The local is really good. We were there to attend Gamescom, and the public transport works wonders at this area.

Roland met me on the first day after being really flexible about my arrival. He helped me settle in providing loads of useful recommendations for the local area. The flat has a really good feel with attention to detail and design. The local area certainly provides a lot of options for food and is about a 20min walk to the centre. For us the flat made our break special by giving us a sense of individualism not found in a hotel room. Highly recommended.
