Pfaffenhof I is a student residence on the campus of Vaihingen, 3 minutes from the S-bahn Universität. The buildings are of the 70s, and have received an architectural award for its distribution. Pfaffen has white towers, most made up of 5 floors. Residents have their own room with sink and share a kitchen and bathroom. Each floor has a kitchen) and one bathroom for girls and one for boys. The kitchen is shared with 12 people and bathrooms on the number of girls and boys that are in the ground where you are. Each building has a terrace with a table and benches for warmer days. I was living in this residence for 2 years and I was very happy. It is also true that it depends on the neighbors. Especially with regard to cleaning problems. My kitchen was always clean. And even though it was for many people, as most are from different countries had different schedules and no space problems. To avoid trouble when sharing a fridge, they were divided into individual boxes, locked. Each had a key to the fridge and one for a kitchen cabinet. The monthly rent costs about 240 euros. You need to be a student to live here and can be a maximum of three months.
Allmandring I is one of the student dorms on the Vaihingen campus, Universität. The dorms in Germany are different from Spanish dorms. Each student has their own room and the kitchen and mixed gender bathrooms are shared, with about 10 people. Every half floor has showers and the other half has toilets. The rooms are large. Each has a big study table, chair, bedside table, bookcase, sink and a "hall closet". In addition, each block has a huge terrace, great for barbecues and parties with many people. Many of my friends lived in Allmandring. At first, I heard bad things about the residence, but is an alright place to live for a while. Although they have hired cleaning staff for two days a week, the state of the public areas is highly dependent on your floor mates. In Allmandring I, there are mostly Chinese, Polish, Italian and Spanish students. The worst thing is to organize cleaning duties, garbage disposal, and refrigerator space. The monthly rent is about 230 euros. You need to be a student and you can only live there for 3 years at the most.
We chose these apartments as a base for our trip to the Black Forest and was a success. They are well located, comfortable, practical, fully equipped and with private garage. We were amazed because they seem to be apartments where someone lives, not the typical apartments you normally get which are cold and impersonal. They are warm and welcoming. You have access to an indoor pool, sauna, and a wi-fi space in the rooms. We stayed almost a week. I loved this place, its location. It is surrounded by stunning views, on the terrace and all the amenities are offered. The manager gave us all kinds of information on places to visit, maps, train schedules, etc. Please note, this region has a daily rate charge for the rooms, do not be surprised! Yes, they give you a card and you can enjoy free travel on public transport and discounts at museums etc..
