Here is Siobhan's Feedback:

Comfortable, well equipped self-catering

We really enjoyed our stay in Koblenz at Am Ufer. A spacious, very well equipped self-catering apartment with a friendly, helpful local agent - Helmut.


As we were on a train holiday and didn't have a car, the bikes available at the apartment were invaluable for getting around - to the shops, the centre of Koblenz etc.


The only thing we could fault is that while we had direct views of the Rhine if we leaned out our window or stood on the road outside the property - it doesn't make the most of its superb location on the banks of the Rhine. I'm not sure what could be done, but maybe some raised seating or deck or whatever within the yard.


One activity we took a while to find and would be of interest especially in summer was the Freibad Oberwerth - a public, open air swimming pool facility with high slide on the southside of Koblenz. Great fun.


One last thing - the address I had printed out didn't include Neuendorf, just the street and postal code and the taxi driver at Hbf didn't know where it was.

What I liked best: Comfort for a self-catering

What I liked least: Lack of view from within the property
