Japanese Penthouse Near Station
Floor No.(with elevator)
- Elevator in building
|Address||Berliner Straße, 63065 Offenbach am Main, Germany|
Loosely marked off from the spacious working/living area you'll find the sleeping area. It's divided by cloth/fabric and adjacent to an outside miniature garden on the smaller balcony, equipped with tatami mats and an original Japanese futon sleeping place. Back-friendly, ground-level bedroom - starting the next day rested and refreshed! This is true not only for our Japanese guests.
The rest of the flooring in the apartment is made of hardwood (kitchen and bath tiled), the kitchen - equipped with hot plates, stove, fridge, kettle, rice cooker, oven toaster and coffee maker - offers access to the large roof balcony, with planting pots of grasses and bamboo, and the opportunity of dining with views to the green river side of Offenbach. This balcony is not private - other tenants of the house can access the roof as well - though this apartment has direct access to the balcony. There are doors leading to the staircase but it's rather seldom that other people pass through - it leads you to the roof. The second smaller balcony is totally private with a view into the city itself.
The spacious living / work area, separated by flexible room divider, is furnished with hand-selected single items still scattered loosely (dining / work area with chairs, cupboard/cabinet with drawers, radio / CD player, desk lamp); Guest bed on request; flat Internet Access / washing machine usage: on request.
Towels and fresh bed-linen is all inclusive of course.
The apartment for 1-2 persons is part of an art project in the German-Japanese Cultural Exchange: In collaboration with students from various disciplines there are currently five apartments in the making, all of them representing different authentic and genuine Japanese living styles. The special feature of the concept is that this is not a calculated cool design, but an authentic and cozy atmosphere is desired, in which Japanese and Western style elements, tradition and modernity combine casually.
Shops and plenty of restaurants are very close - in two minutes you are right in the middle of the pedestrian area of Offenbach with all the shops. Also you're only five minutes walking distance from the Main river, which invites for jogging, biking and walking.
Grocery shopping until midnight (a three minutes walk to the supermarket); late shopping kiosk in the station until 2 am. Easy train connection to Frankfurt / Exhibition (messe frankfurt); travel time to Ffm-Hauptwache: 12-15 minutes/ to Ffm-Fair 20-25 minutes.
There is public parking in the house, but you will need to pay for it and it closes at night. Nearby free parking can sometimes be a hassle. Have a look in Französisches Gäßchen behind the building - you might find something there.

House rules- Courtesy and kindness to neighbours and the janitor are of utmost importance :-)
- The main entrance of the building must be locked from 7pm whenever leaving or entering
- The plants should be watered in case of an extended stay - the next guest will like it more if it's still a hint of green! :-)
- In case you find a short term notice hanging on the bulletin board - saying for example that people from supply companies will need to enter the apartment - please, pass the info on to us, thanks!
- In case something breaks or does not work, please, inform us in order to provide a rapid solution!
Thank you a lot for keeping these few "golden" rules in mind :-)

Reviews of this property
I had been striving to get hold of my regular visits to Offenbach for a few days in the Japanese furnished penthouse. For good reason, this wonderful apartment is very booked up. Hostess Elisa has then done everything to allow me a few days, which certainly requires extraordinary coordination efforts. She was always available for questions and has provided for a smooth stay. And so I had some wonderful days with a long soak in the large tub to celebrate the transition from day to evening (very traditional Japanese), relaxing work and evening readings in tatami and Futonraum or at a desk with a view over the rooftops of the city . The apartment has everything you need for working, relaxing and cooking is very centrally located, right next to a tram and a bike share station. Only downside for drivers: Parking is very limited in the vicinity. Very much hope that the apartment for my next visit is available again!
Ich hatte schon lange versucht, für meine regelmäßigen Besuche in Offenbach ein paar Tage im japanisch eingerichteten Penthouse zu ergattern. Aus gutem Grund ist dieses wunderbare Apartment sehr ausgebucht.
Gastgeberin Elisa hat dann alles getan, um mir einige Tage zu ermöglichen, was sicher ungewöhnliche Koordinationsanstrengungen erfordert hat. Sie war auch immer erreichbar für Fragen und hat für einen reibungslosen Aufenthalt gesorgt.
Und so hatte ich einige wunderbare Tage mit langem Bad in der großen Wanne, um den Übergang vom Tag zum Abend zu zelebrieren (ganz traditionell japanisch), entspannenden Arbeits- und Leseabenden im Tatami- und Futonraum oder am Schreibtisch mit Aussicht über die Dächer der Stadt.
Das Apartment bietet alles, was man zum Arbeiten, Entspannen und Kochen braucht, ist sehr zentral gelegen, direkt bei einer S-Bahn und einer bike share Station.
Einziger Nachteil, für Autofahrer: Parkmöglichkeiten sind sehr beschränkt in der näheren Umgebung.
Hoffe sehr, dass das Apartment für meinen nächsten Besuch wieder verfügbar ist!
Since the long leave was taken this time, he stayed together with the partner.
The place was very near also from the station and it was very convenient for there to be also many shops in the surroundings of an apartment and to live.
Moreover, it is only 10 minutes by train also going to the center in Frankfurt.
In all, conditions of location are perfect.
It is very clean the inside of the room.
the food utensils of equipment [ room ], a towel, a sheet, and a bed (Japanese style) -- it is perfection altogether.
Although I am living in Japan usually, this room changes the apartment in Japan, and nothing, but is relaxed and can live.
It is after it is clean and environment required for a life is ready.
However, since it is a Japanese-style apartment, it may not get used to foreign one, but probably, it will be satisfactory at all.
It is because Japanese culture also with foreign surely good one can be got in touch with.
I think that it is an apartment very good for Asians including Japan, of course.
Moreover, correspondence when troubled, and the exchange of connection are also early polite.
He can stay without troubling nothing.
Moreover, the partner was decided on, when going to Germany and this was used.
The really good travel was completed by the favor of this apartment.
Weil die lange Erlaubnis dieses Mal genommen wurde, blieb er zusammen mit dem Partner.
Die Stelle war auch von der Station sehr nah, und es war sehr günstig für dort, auch viel Geschäfte in den Umgebungen einer Wohnung und zu leben zu sein.
Überdies ist es nur 10 Minuten neben Zug, der auch zum Zentrum in Frankfurt geht.
In allem sind Bedingungen für Lage perfekt.
Es ist sehr sauber das innerhalb des Zimmers. die Essensgebrauchsgegenstande der Ausrüstung [Zimmer], ein Handtuch, ein Laken und ein Bett (Japanisch entwerfen), es ist insgesamt Vollendung.
Obwohl ich normalerweise in Japan wohne, verändert dieses Zimmer die Wohnung in Japan, und nichts, aber wird gelockert und kann leben.
Es ist, nachdem es sauber ist, und Umgebung verlangte, damit ein Leben bereit ist.
Aber, weil es eine Japanisch-Stilwohnung ist, wird es vielleicht zu man nicht fremd benutzt, aber wahrscheinlich wird es überhaupt befriedigend sein.
Es ist weil japanische Kultur auch mit gut kann einer fremd bestimmt sein, kam damit in Kontakt.
Ich glaube, daß es eine Wohnung für Asiaten einschließlich Japans natürlich sehr gut ist.
Überdies, Übereinstimmung wenn gestört, und der Tausch der Verbindung ist auch früh höflich.
Er kann bleiben, ohne nichts zu stören.
Überdies wurde für den Partner entschieden, als zu Deutschland und diesem zu gehen, benutzt wurde.
Die wirklich gute Reise wurde von der Gunst dieser Wohnung vervollständigt.
Very close to subway to city centre. The flat has its flows, but the help from the owners made it all gone. In fact the help from the owners was priceless! Very good contact.
We sincerely spent good days stay in Offenbach. Elisa she's very kindly and polite. She has being at time at meeting without waiting etc.
what we dind't appreciate so much is that we booked an appartment for 2 people very early and last days she has change our location in another place little where one bad was between entry door and kitchen without doors. The first kitchen seems was more confortable , but whate we found was on hte house were we stayed was enough for cook one plate. Probably two much money for the flat she offered us.
