Dear guests ...
We have a wonderful room free in our beautiful apartment in an old building in the heart of Hamburg St. Georg, but first a small slot:
Dear guests of Near & Far Away,
Stephan & I do nothing with more passion than to host! We love what we do and are also proud of our guestbook, which is full of greetings from Guests from every corner of the whole wide world.
However, in the past there were a few misunderstandings with our guests that we would like to clarify: we are not a hotel, we are a shared flat, with different roommates, some of whom stay shorter and some even a few weeks or months. And also We are not permanently at home to take care of you. We have exam phases during our studies or are on holiday or spend a few days with our partners.
Being in a shared apartment is different than being in an private apartment, it is more chaotic, it can sometimes happen that you have to bring down the trash yourself, or take out things of the dishwasher, sometimes one even makes the experience of brushing his teeth in the kitchen when the bathroom is in use for a short time is what makes the charm of living together ...
We are in the process of renovating the one or the other thing in the flat, but there are certainly some places where this renovation is not finished yet. Our photos are not always 100% up-to-date, because things change in a shared flat and old furniture breaks down and we get new ones...
There is one or the other hole in the wall, it also peels off a bit of wallpaper here and there, it is a broken light bulb or it is sometimes a cable somewhere in the way around, where it does not look sooo nice ...
Please take a look BEFORE your final booking in our house rules and do not just click on ‚confirm‘, this will only cause displeasure with you & us ...
We would like to accommodate independent and uncomplicated people who know what we are talking about.
That appreciate all this and are open-minded, because that is exactly the special feature of a shared flat: that not everything has to go according to plan and that in the kitchen, for example, meet people who you meet at home we would not have met and together are drinking a Hamburger Astra beer ... We would like to invite you to do so, we are happy to ask you about everything, We will organize everything for you that is in our power!
But we also need you to respect our limits, and also hosts need private time, They get ill, they also have struggles, they have a broken heart sometimes or a broken finger from renovating, whatever.
So, now back to our description, we are looking forward to getting to know you ...!
Daniel & Stephan
The central location of our apartment allows you to get to the sights in the Hafencity (Musicals etc.), the Ship landing stages (Hamburger Hafen), Reeperbahn, Blankenese, and many other tourist destinations, without long start-up times, with our bicycles, if you like!
The Lange Reihe is 3 minutes on foot from us at home. It is one of Hamburg's most beautiful streets, its old street sign is even at home in our apartment for decoration. Here you will find a unique mix of cafes, bars & restaurants. We are happy to give you recommendations here personally...
Guests are very welcome to us and we are happy to give tips and advice for the (arrival) trip to the most beautiful city in the world.
The room is open and bright. The beautiful, old PitchPine plank floor makes it something very special. There is also a large flat screen TV in the room available, private channels can usually be received. Sometimes technical equipment is broken, and then it may take a few days to repair it ...
Rarely it can happen that the room you have booked is not free. Then we reserve the right to give you our other Airbnb room, it is at least equivalent in size & features.
#Bikes & Cycles:
We have some high quality bikes especially for our guests here, because we think cycling is just part of a city trip! And we are passionate cyclists ourselves. They are in good condition. Nevertheless, note that no liability can be accepted.
Please read everything else about the wheels in the house rules.
For Automobiles there is a private parking lot. If you need it, it costs 7.- per started day.
Please remember that your car is not insured in the garage. My car is safe there, but neither I nor the owner of the garage can be held liable for damages etc.
Please read everything else about the wheels in the house rules.
#Access for guests:
In general, we give our best to handle things as well and easily as possible. And yet it can happen that dates or appointments overlap. Since I expect from my guests the same flexibility, as I offer them in case of delays, etc. If we are not home, we will deposit a key for you in the restaurant and give you all further information before arrival via Whatsapp.
Please note that we are not always at home. Stephan is at home often, but also works independently and has his own small business. He speaks great German & English & Spanish. Daniel also stays overnight with his girlfriend often, she does live in the same street, 3 houses away from our home. Both of us are of course always available by phone (like WA Messages we like most!).
We have a bathroom with toilet, shower (bath) and a small extra toilet. Our kitchen is well equipped, with everything you need for cooking. A Dishwasher is here, of course, and is available to our guests.
Fresh towels and bed linen are available in sufficient numbers, as well as small & large duvets in all warming levels. Ask us if you miss something. And we will organise that quickly or will just tell you, where you can find that in our place.
And we are proud to provide the following for our guests:
- A Full Service Coffee Machine (De'Longhi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110.B )
- Fast WIFI (400Mbit)
- Some current Hamburg Guides & Homemade Maps
- Umbrellas; )
- Space in the bathroom / fridge
There is also a small breakfast to make yourself ... Milk & cereals (some varieties), jam, Nutella, honey, are usually here for our guests. The jam without label (red) is Daniel's Homemade Marmalade (Strawberry & Vanilla ; ) It can happen sometimes that not everything is 100% in stock. Therefore, it is nice to us, you see the breakfast more as a free additional service than as something you deserve.
Our shared flat is mostly clean & tidy, but we can not rule out that there may be a bit of dust in one corner or the other when we're busy. Some things we have renovated over time, but our home remains an old, shrunken here & there, yet very lovable old aunt.The apartment itself is in an old building from the last century, it may not featuring the most welcoming style in the house outside our apartment.
#Interaction with guests:
Our guests are all nice and friendly and always ready for a ‚Schnack‘, as they say in Hamburg and also give other references to our favorite locations and places, where otherwise you might not have tripped over it.
We appreciate uncomplicated & open guests. We are a shared flat, we have more guests in different rooms and accordingly you should also use ‚Students – Shared - Flat standards, if you judge us. We will not have a hotel standard in many aspects and are also proud to differentiate ourselves here. And if, contrary to expectation, you are disturbed by something, we will be pleased if you speak up and we find solutions, before you leave a negative rating on airbnb.
We are very happy about 5 star ratings. If there were legitimate reasons why you can not give them, please talk to us about it. We are sure that you will like it with us and in case it should not be like to give a generous discount!
St. Georg is the colorful, multicultural heart of Hamburg. You are right in the middle of the City instead of far away. So you can save long travel distances and from the main station (Bus & Train) you are within 10 minutes walk at our house.
Within walking distance there are restaurants of all kinds and some nice bars and pubs. Supermarket: 2 minutes.
While many other districts of Hamburg are now completely adapted & gentrified, there is still a colorful & multicultural life in St. Georg. Tourist - Attractions, Hamburgs shopping Streets and the Public Transport are around the corner. Please recognise, that in the direct City Center, around Central Station, it can sometimes smells of food or a pigeon on the balcony flying past or also wake you up in the mornings…
Everything there, what you wish for, in 5 minutes to reach, all bus, train lines ... The next underground is the U1 station Lohmühlenstrasse, but Central Station is also very close by. From the airport it's best to get off at the main central station (S1) and walk to us.
1. Carefully read the house rules (to be found on the Airbnb Website of the Listing, just under the city map of Hamburg)
2. Please Behave as at home or better; )
3. From 22.30 we like you to be quiet in the apartment and please do not do anything illegal on the Internet, especially illegal downloads (such as Bitorrents) are prohibited.
If something breaks you, please let me know, especially with the bikes ...
Sometimes we have more time for you, sometimes less ... Please do not mind if we ourselves have a lot to work on or do private things ...
So, see you soon and a good & safe journey,
Greetings from both of us,
Daniel & Stephan
Hamburg, Hamburg, Njemačka
