Beside a small park the new renovated (September 2012) flat is located in the third floor (USA 4th floor, no elevator) to the inner green courtyard (usually silent at night) of this old "Gruenderzeit-house" (2,90 m ceiling height). From the central station you walk 9 minutes, to the next underground (Ebertplatz) and to the river Rhine it is only 3 minutes, to the Cathedral (Dom) 12 minutes.
All shops for the daily needs are very conveniently situated: around the street-corner you find 2 bakeries (also open on Sunday morning) a kiosk (open daily until 09:00pm), a small grocer's shop and a laundry/dry cleaning store and restaurants.
Within 3 minutes you reach the lively and popular areas of "Eigelstein" and "Agnesviertel" with lots of bars and restaurants and supermarkets (Rewe, open Mo-Fr from 07am until midnight, Sa until 10pm).
To the new combined ice rink and swimming pool (with sauna) "Lentpark" you walk ca. 10 minutes.
