I recently took a seven-day trip to Germany to go to Oktoberfest in Munich with a friend and my brother. We ended up booking an apartment with the Kellermann’s Apartment accommodation in the outskirts of Memmingen.
About Our Decision to Stay in Memmingen
Why did we book in Memmingen, which is 30 minutes away from Munich by car? Finding a place to stay in Munich, during Oktoberfest, was next to impossible. And, on top of that you can plan on spending a couple of grand for a three to four day stay – unless you go to a hostel.
Saving money is always a good reason to stay in a smaller town than in a big city. And, he Kellermann’s apartment was a beautiful surprise to all of us – luxury for more than half the price of what you would get in Munich.
How did we decide on Memmingen? During our accommodation search, the three of us decided to find a small town outside of Munich, and use public transportation to save some money. This led us to discover Memmingen and the Kellermann’s Apartments.
My brother was the one who actually booked the place, so I didn’t have any ideas of what to expect. Honestly, the entire trip was planned in a haste, so I didn’t even have time to Google the place. All I knew was that it’s somewhere fairly near the center of the tiny town called Memmingen with free parking, which was very important because we rented a car to explore Germany during our Oktoberfest festivities.
We went to Kellermann’s Apartment after spending two wonderful days in Nuremberg. Due to traffic jams and roads blocked from construction, the drive from Nuremberg to Memmingen was quite exhausting.
Nevertheless, our final destination quickly made us happy again.
First Impressions of Kellermann’s Apartment
Kellermann’s Apartment is a beautiful house, with multiple apartments, in a quiet neighborhood; it has several parking spots in front of the building and a nicely designed garden. Even though the atmosphere was cold and wet (it rained that day), we were happy to arrive at such a lovely place.
Kellermann’s Apartment is a large yellow house, which is well maintained and clean. Everything inside looked new and well-maintained. The garden was, also, very nice, with a freshly mowed lawn, trees, and hammocks. Inside the building, guests can find useful pamphlets and information regarding the city, which is very thoughtful of the hosts.
The house is not far from the center in a small quiet street without any traffic almost. Nearby, there’s a small restaurant/coffee shop as well as a supermarket and an apothecary.
There are three parking spots in front of the house. We didn’t have any issues with the parking and didn’t need to look for street parking.
We stayed in the apartment on the first floor that featured a living/dining room with a kitchen, two bedrooms, and a bathroom. There is a small patio by the kitchen, but we never used it because the weather was terrible.
The apartment was great, everything was new and tastefully organized. I fell in love with the bathroom, but honestly, everything was perfect. We had towels, the kitchen was well-equipped.
The hosts even provided a welcome package of water and peanuts. Plus, the Internet was high speed and excellent Wi-Fi signal.
We never met anyone and the key was left in a locker with a PIN code. I bet the owners are great considering how well everything was organized and explained.
During the Stay at Kellermann’s Apartments
We loved our stay at the Kellermann’s Apartments – we really enjoyed the place.
I don’t have any special tips and tricks, except to buy everything you need on time since most of the shops in Memmingen close at 8 or 8:30 PM. We were once forced to buy water at a gas station because that was the only thing open at 10 PM.
We enjoyed walking around Memmingen and during a rainy night, we found the umbrella in the apartment very helpful.
The hosts really tried to provide a smooth and lovely stay to everyone by leaving slippers, umbrellas, dish detergent, towels and stuff like that. So, once you get there you can just relax, instead of worrying about small things. Also, there is a hair-dryer and lots of toilet paper rolls, plus some extra towels in the bathroom in case you wanted to change them.
The hosts even have board games! The big kitchen table is perfect for a fun board game nights for those traveling with kids or friend getaways.
Verdict: Sad to Check Out
Honestly, we were pretty sad to check out; Milena and I especially felt depressed after we got to our new accommodation in Memmingen – Drexel’s Parkhotel. We really overpaid for what we got there and regretted our decision to change accommodation in order to save a small amount of money.
All in all, we loved Kellermann’s Apartment and I highly recommend it to everyone. It’s in a nice area that lets you sleep at night, not far away from the center and has free parking. Plus, it’s well-equipped and even better maintained; therefore, I believe everyone will enjoy their stay in this cool place.
