Airbnb Chistiane & Laurence, Libur Reviews
Just like being at home! Aug 07, 2015
This was a great AirBnb near Cologne.
I and a friend paid about 30 euro a night each for a good size single room. Not ensuite, but this was not a problem.
The owners, Christiane and Laurence, could not have been more helpful.
I should explain about the location of this place. It is in a very small, quiet village about half-way between Cologne and Bonn. It is very near Cologne/Bonn Airport. Unless you have a car, to get to it from Cologne centre, you can take a S-Bahn a short 15 minute ride on S-Bahn train to Porz-Wahn. From Cologne Airport, it is just one stop on the S-Bahn. From Bonn, you can take train towards Cologne and switch to S-Bahn at Troisdorf. Or take bus.
Unfortunately, the house is located 2.5 km from the S-Bahn. You can easily get regular bus 163, direction Bonn and it is a five minute bus ride.
The owners will collect and leave you to the S-Bahn station if possible.
Also, there are two bicycles available for free and these were ideal for us for getting around - we cycled to Bonn for example.
The bedrooms were really nice, quiet, clean, comfortable. The common areas of the house were great too. We could use the kitchen to prepare meals and sit outside on terrace or in dining room.
Every morning, a delicious, copious breakfast was prepared.
One negative though. The Wifi only worked in a very limited area in the house. It was not always available in the room. I realise this can be a problem in houses with concrete walls but there are ways around it - either booster points or a different router and network. Wifi is very important now, particularly for people on business. Hopefully the owners will sort this out.
Also, in the village of Libur, there are no shops. There is just one pub/restaurant, which is closed on Monday.
All in all, we were extremely happy with this place. We really felt at home there and would definitely stay again. Can really highly recommend.
