We can lay three additional mattresses on the floor anywhere you like.

THE AREA: Whatever you want to do in Hamburg - we are in the best location: The apartment is situated between Eimsbuettel (a family-friendly, laid back area) and the edgy, a little more rough "Schanze". Although the area is lively, the apartment is absolutely quiet. No street noise! The area is safe to walk at night.
Loads of restaurants, bars and cafés are minutes away, as are three supermarkets (one organic), a baker, a chemist and a drugstore. Whatever your budget or taste - we can give you advice on where to eat out. There are parks and many playgrounds nearby. You can walk to a public pool (outdoor&indoor) and to a gym.
FAIR GROUNDS: If business brings you to Hamburg, the "Hamburg Messe" fairgrounds are in walking distance, or you hop onto the tube for one stop.
PUBLIC TRANSPORT: Three different subway stations and busses are 3-5 walking minutes away. You reach the city centre after a six minute subway ride. The airport is 15 minutes by taxi (24 Euro), or 35 minutes by public transport. .
PARKING SPACES: There are free parking spaces in our area, but they are limited. Once you found a space, you better use public transport.
BIKES: Just down the road there is access to public bikes, ready to rent after registering online. The best option to get around town!
IMPORTANT TO KNOW: We have two dogs. They will not be here when you come, and of course the apartment will be cleaned thoroughly before your visit. But if you suffer from allergies, our home may not suit you so well.
The apartment is a non smoking-area, but there are balconies. We have lovely neighbors with small kids, so we absolutely don´t want any loud music or partying in the house. Please do not bring extra guests to the apartment after checking in.
