Here is Cath's Feedback:

Well equipped apartment with welcoming host but not for us

The apartment was superb, with wonderful bathroom, very comfy beds and well equipped kitchen and the host very accommodating.


However overall the experience was very disappointing. It was more expensive than any other we have ever booked and was the most disappointing. The apartment was situated on a busy road, at traffic lights and overlooking the entrance/exit to a large road tunnel. Not our idea of 'a spectacular view'. A hill could just be glimpsed between buildings. The balcony was just enough for two (there were four of us) and overlooked the road at the back, the back yard and supporting bank. The Lichentaler allee was within a two minute walk which was pleasant.


Baden Baden though pretty was a poor location for teenagers. More suited to 70+ and despite what we were promised there were no bikes to hire anywhere in the town. Sadly a very unmemorable holiday.

What I liked best: Bathroom

What I liked least: Lack of view/noise from main road
