Here is Melissa's Feedback:

Fabulous bright modern apartment with courtyard, close to old town and station

My family loved staying in Vera's apartment. It was just perfect. The living area is lovely, especially having the courtyard with table, chairs and umbrella. The photos do not do justice to the size and simple elegance of it. Vera is a lovely friendly and helpful host.


We were visiting Tubingen for a family wedding and had some of the family over for lunch, they were all so jealous and kept asking how we found such great accommodation! (They were in hotels in the old town). Having separate bedrooms, kitchen, lounge/dining and large bathroom are such an advantage.


There is an easy flat walk to the Neckar Bridge (took under 15 mins with a six year old), or a slightly quicker walk crossing a pedestrian bridge with stairs. Along the first walk you also pass quite a reasonable supermarket (near the railway underpass).


Tubingen is a beautiful town which we were so happy we had the chance to visit. If you are visiting the region, I highly recommend this Apartment.

What I liked best: Size and location

What I liked least: Lack of washing machine - it would be handy
