What a comfortable, spacious, secure and well-appointed apartment. It had everything we needed and more, even things like a collapsible clothes rack and a teapot (which we haven’t seen often in France). Following feedback from a previous reviewer there is a now a new large and very comfortable bed. The apartment was spotlessly clean. There was a good Internet connection.
Dealing with the owner, Wolfgang, was a pleasure. He greeted us on arrival and will even collect guests from the train station if required. We had a car and there is on street parking for free or the possibility of secure parking in the garage. Wolfgang has a great local knowledge. In the apartment there are a range of maps and brochures on the area and Wolfgang can also recommend places to go depending on the amount of time you have available.
You should note that the apartment is close to a railway line but having said that, at night we didn’t have any trouble sleeping as the double-glazing and roller shutters were effective in blocking the noise. The apartment is in a multistory complex but there was no noise or disturbance at all from adjacent apartments. It is within easy walking distance of the old town, about a 15-minute walk away, and there is a large supermarket and 24hr petrol station nearby.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay in Colmar in this comfortable, well-appointed apartment in a convenient location with parking available, a very helpful owner and overall very good value for money.

An excellent location in a quiet neighborhood (except for the occasional train) bus service,old town, railway station and supermarket all within an easy walk. The apartment is large , very well furnished and equipped with everything. A friendly & efficient owner, who made us most welcome, all adding up to an enjoyable one week stay.
This apartment is great value for money. It is spotlessly clean, spacious and comfortable. The wonderful host met us at the train station and drove us around the old town pointing out sights of interest and recommended restaurants on the way. He also took us back to the train station on our day of departure all free of charge. This lovely, homely apartment, beautifully furnished in the traditional style is three minutes walk from a major supermarket and bakery and ten minutes walk from the historic centre of Colmar. The windows are double glazed which shut out the sound of the trains passing nearby. Everything you could need in a kitchen could only be improved by the provision of a small Nespresso machine for those like us who carry a supply of capsules when we travel!
The only minus is the double bed which is very small and not long enough for people of average height. The bedroom is very spacious and a much larger bed would fit easily. Then it would be perfect.
