Hello, we are Dorothee and Volker and are living in Hattersheim on the Main for over 40 years–the city is located on the outskirts of Frankfurt and close to the recreation areas Taunus and Rheingau.
We love to live here since it is centrally located close to Frankfurt on the Main but still surrounded by nature. It only takes a short car ride to reach Frankfurt city, Frankfurt International Airport or Frankfurt Trade Fair. Hattersheim train station is in short walking distance within our house and provides good connections to the fast train and metro net of the Rhine Main area.
We offer a newly renovated, fully equipped floor in our single family house with a separate entrance that can accommodate 1, 2, 3 or 4 persons. Here you’ll find 2 lovingly furnished bedrooms with lots of extras, a large bathroom with shower and WC (including hair dryer, shower gel, etc.), a kitchenette (with fridge, coffee machine, etc.), a cozy living room with a big couch, flat screen TV + radio and much more.
Indoor: temperature regulation through air conditioning and central heating, all windows with roller shutters… and a lot of comfort, coziness and space.
We’ll do everything to ensure that you feel comfortable at our place. We respect your privacy, but are also happy to give you advice or assistance anytime you need it and to support your needs wherever we can. Our wish is that you feel AT HOME.
We look forward to your visit!

From the time we booked with Dorothee and Volker, we had great communication. Dorothee tries very hard to please her guests. Her place is the best equipped airbnb we have stayed at to date! Due to the unusually warm weather we were truly appreciative of the air conditioning and the multiple fans available. In the evenings we sat out on the balcony enjoying a glass of wine and the view, which was very relaxing. However, being able to explore the area by bicycle was by far the best part of our Germany trip this year. In the future we will surely stay with Dorothee and Volker again, their friendliness and service are superior and can only be highly recommended. We hope to see you again soon!
Dorothee + Volker provided the most comfortable and friendly stay for us. From the moment we landed, we were treated like old friends and given the VIP treatment. The living space for guests is quite large and includes really comfortable beds, kitchenette, coffee maker, refrigerator, microwave, huge bathroom, and all quite clean in that wonderful German way. Details matter and Dorothee covered all the bases - curbside pickup at the airport, maps, information on trains, restaurants. The traditional German breakfast we added was beyond anything I’ve seen in even the best of hotels. Volker makes the best coffee and Dorothee provided an array of meats, eggs, bread, yogurts, juice, and fruits to feed an army! Volker dropped us off back curbside after our breakfast to catch our onward flight. Dorothee made sure we had chocolates in our bags for when we needed a sweet! We were completely spoiled so my expectations of future Airbnb homes may fall short. I’m a flight attendant and I’ve stayed around the world in many types of accommodations but Dorothee + Volker have certainly left me with a wonderful memory.

Dorothee und Volker Arlt
We had a 3 days staying, with three bikes with us and a lot of sportsware and equipment. It’s a really nice and comfortable apartment. Every single thing is made by the hosts for the most comfortable staying. The rooms, bathroom, little kitchen - all is equipped with all necessary details and even more. All is very clean and prepared with a lot of care. A lot of space for storage. The bed clothes are of very good quality. Conditioning. There is also a balcony with a nice view - you may have a dinner there with watching of the planes coming up and down at the horizon, as FRA airport is not far from the place. The positioning is also very successful - 10 minutes of walk is for S-bahn station and 20 minutes by S-bahn till the very centre of Frankfurt. Trains are going 2-3 times an hour. But the most positive that we have met is the hosts - Dorothee and Volker. They are marvellous! Such a warm and kind attitude made us really feel at home. They are really doing everything for the most happy staying of their guests. They gave us a lot of useful information, maps, guides, helped with transfer to the airport. Also they gave us a safe storage for our 3 bicycles in their garage, that was of high importance for us. A lot of help with the cleaning of our traveling equipment and sportsware. Every morning we enjoyed wonderful breakfast, prepared for us with much care - fresh food, well-done coffee, some nice small things and serving itself - making our moods up and ready for the long walkings throughout the days. We are grateful to Dorothee and Volker for every day of our staying with them!!
Dorothee + Volker are professional, warm, and friendly. They were extremely helpful with suggestions for dining and directions to the airport, which is very nearby and the reason we chose the location. The apartment could not have been better and would have been suitable for a family as well as a couple. It is equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay including toiletries, kitchen items, wifi access and plenty of outlets and usb connectors. There is a beautiful park nearby and everything you need is within easy walking distance. The breakfast they served us prior to our departure to the airport was beyond all expectations. I would recommend them as hosts and the apartment without hesitation to a close friend or family member.
Dorothee and Volker are very nice people with such a beautifully decorated apartment. I stayed 1 night with them but it felt like home. Such lovely people and such a nice beautiful place. They arranged a special vegan breakfast for me. They were very caring and kind. The transport provided was so effective and easy. Their arrangements and suggestions were perfect. I loved the location. The best hosts and house. Thank you to them. I will certainly return back.
Dorothee und Volker sind hervorragende Gastgeber, die an jedes kleinste Detail denken, immer für einen da sind und ihre Gäste in jeder Hinsicht unterstützen. So einen rundum Service bekommt man in keinem Hotel. Wir haben uns direkt zu Hause gefühlt und kommen beim nächsten Frankfurt-Aufenthalt gerne wieder. Ganz herzlichen Dank und ein großes Kompliment!
Great host, really do. That is one of the best accommodation which I have ever stayed, even comparing with 5 star hotels :)
You will have absolutely everything which you need, staying there. Next time in Frankfurt, I will be definitely come again.
Dorothee and Volker were such wonderful hosts. They communicated before and after our stay with accurate information. The apartment is beautiful and the breakfast outstanding. They picked us up at the airport and returned us to the train station easily. I am looking forward to returning to visit this charming couple. A prior reviewer called them Super Hosts and I absolutely agree. If they ever come to the USA I would love to have them stay with us. The warmth and care this couple has for their guests. No way on earth could they improve. It’s top notch!
“Besser geht’s nicht”
Liebe Familie Arlt, auch im Namen meiner Jugendfreundin aus Washington möchte ich mich ganz herzlich bei Ihnen für die wirklich einmalige Gastlichkeit bedanken. Die gemütliche, liebevolle Gestaltung der Räume, die in puncto Geschirr und Frühstücksbedarf perfekt ausgestattete Küche sowie das blaue Bad mit jeglicher Art von Kosmetikbedarf ließen keine Wünsche offen. Und obendrein der Balkon–dort mit einer Tasse Kaffee den Tag in aller Ruhe in der Morgensonne beginnen zu können oder ihn mit einem Glas Wein ausklingen zu lassen–einfach herrlich. Wir haben uns bei Ihnen wirklich zu Hause gefühlt und das nicht zuletzt durch Ihre herzliche, familiäre und bei vielen Gelegenheiten hilfsbereite Betreuung.
Wann immer ich kann, werde ich Sie weiterempfehlen und sollte mich der Weg wieder mal nach Hattersheim führen, so hoffe ich stark, dass ich wieder bei Ihnen wohnen kann.
Ich wünsche Ihnen eine gute Zeit und bleiben Sie gesund, damit Sie auch weiterhin die Kraft haben, Ihre Gäste so zu verwöhnen.
Dorothee and Volker are perfectly gracious hosts. They communicated well before our visit and made sure that everything would go smoothly when we arrived. The apartment itself is so clean and welcoming. There are so many thoughtful touches in each of the rooms. Dorothee thinks of everything—from maps to coffees to different colored towels for each guest. And the breakfast was the epitome of German breakfast, with a staggering and delicious selection sure to satisfy everyone—delicious!! And Hattersheim is a terrific location—a quick train ride into Frankfurt (15 minutes), a quick drive to the airport (10 minutes) and a bike ride away from beautiful countryside. I would stay there again in a heartbeat!!
Our hosts Dorothee and Volker were great. Dorothee was always very helpful and quick with information. The apartment is newly renovated and air-conditioned in a great location. I would definitely recommend this location again. Actually wish we would have had more time in our schedule to stay there longer. The hosts even picked us up from the train station and dropped us off at the airport. Our best from our whole Germany trip.
Dorothee and Volker are fantastic Airbnb hosts! We felt like we were staying with family with all the amenities of home. The apartment was exactly as advertised and in close proximity to the Frankfurt airport for our flight home. Dorothee was always accessible from my first point of contact before booking through our stay with recommendations of what to do and where to eat. We had an amazing breakfast before Volker took us to the airport. It’s little extras like that differentiate them from the rest of our hosts during our European vacation. I would definitely return. Thank you!
Das ist wirklich eine sehr tolle Unterkunft, viel besser, als wir erwartet hatten! Wir (Ehepaar mit großem Sohn) mussten tagsdrauf zum Frankfurter Flughafen und haben bei Dorothee und Volker eine Nacht gebucht. Sie empfingen uns sehr herzlich und wir staunten über die Fläche und Sauberkeit, als wir die obere Wohnung betraten, herzlich auch hier empfangen mit einer kleinen Schokolade auf den Bettkissen. Alles war sehr sauber und es war dort wirklich alles vorhanden, was man überhaupt bräuchte und auch brauchen würde, würde man dort länger verweilen. Perfekt eingerichtet; eine Dachwohnung mit großen Betten, geräumig und einem tollen Balkon, von dem man über Äcker und Wiesen bis zum Flugplatz sehen kann. Trotz der Nähe hierzu sehr ruhig! Abends, als wir noch eine Pizza essen waren, quasi um die Ecke, genossen wir die gemütlich fast dörfliche Atmosphäre in diesem wunderschönen Vorort. Durch die Herzlichkeit von Dorothee und Volker fühlten wir uns sehr glücklich und sehr, sehr gut aufgehoben; darum immer wieder, wenn ich in Frankfurt übernachten muss.
Dorothee et Volker sont des hôtes remarquables, et leur appartement l’est tout autant. C’est grand, confortable et astucieux. Tout y est prévu, c’est impressionnant. C’est mieux qu’à la maison! L’appartement est situé au premier étage de leur maison, qui est dans un quartier très calme. Nous vous recommandons vivement ce havre de paix, et nous y retournerons volontiers. Vielen Dank noch, diese kleine Besuch war einfach ein Genuss. Schöne Grüße aus Elsass!
Wir zwei Monteure, die bundesweit im Einsatz sind, haben uns sehr gefreut, in solch einer Wohnung wie bei Ihnen unterkommen zu können!
Der stilvolle Flair der jeweiligen Räumlichkeiten lässt den Gedanken an Zuhause aufkommen. Dieser tröstet einen hinweg von der zeitlichen Trennung von der Familie.
Daher möchten wir uns für Ihre nette Gastfreundschaft und dem vorgefundenen Ambiente ganz herzlich bedanken!
Dorothee and Volker are definitely the best, most professional host we could ever met. Everything in their house is well prepared. Two large rooms and one living room with a small nice kitchen. It was much more better than a five star hotel. Dorothee and Volker were super nice hosts and they reply every email very fast and provided detail information for their guests. It was a great experience to stay with them and highly recommend their flat if someone is searching a wonderful place to stay.
Nos encantó la estadia con Dorothee y Volker. Son muy amables, serviciales y generosos. El espacio es confortable, grande y lleno de detalles que hacen que uno se sienta en casa. Durante nuestra estadia mi esposo cumplio años y se lo celebraron a lo grande!! Con desayuno al estilo Aleman, torta hecha por Dorothee y regalo!! Fue increible y fue una experiencia muy linda que no olvidaremos.
I stayed with Dorothee and Volker for one night on 15th October with my wife and two kids. Only one word for the house and hosts - Awesome. They not only came to pick us up from the airport at 7am but also volunteered to drop us back at 4:30am only for a very very insignificant sum. The house was fully equipped, every small detail had been given attention to. Dorothee even dropped us to the metro station and explained the routes and places to visit in absolute detail making it very easy for us. I might not visit Frankfurt again as a tourist but would want to come back only to stay with Dorothee and Volker , don’t miss staying with them☺. The photos have a very correct picture about the house, though I felt the accommodation was better than the pictures. They are the best!
We were four people having spent one night at Dorothee and Volker’s house. It was a very comfortable night. Dorothee and Volker were very kind and welcoming. They kept in contact with us from the beginning till our arrival. They received us at 10 o’clock in the evening and showed us all things that they prepared for us. The two rooms and the bathroom are very well equipped. We got everything to take shower and they even prepared four different colors of towels for us to distinguish from each other’s. There is a grand sofa (bed) in the salon and we could watch tv and play table games in there. They also prepared different kind of drinks for us in the refrigerator. We felt like home there and would like to spend more days!
Dorothee and Volker were warm and welcoming. As we walked up the stairs, there was even a sign with our name on it welcoming us. They showed us our area that had bottled water ready for us as well as welcoming cookies on our pillow. Dorothee pays close attention to every need or want. The upstairs is totally ready for guests. There is a well stocked kitchenette, comfortable beds and a lounge area for watching tv. They also let you use bicycles to explore. I cannot express enough how wonderful our experience was with them. Whenever we return to Frankfurt, we would definitely want to stay with them.
It was amazing to realize all the attention to detail that Dorothee and Volker had given to their airbnb space. It was better than a five star hotel. The best part of getting to know our host and hostess. We had a fabulous time and missed them when we left. Everything is top rate!
Dorothee and Volker’s house is really lovely and their hospitality makes me feel like home! They organised everything before I arrived and even wrote a welcome sign! The room is quite comfortable and I wish I could stay there longer. Highly recommend!
Our 3rd and final stay with Dorothee and Volker this year just ended. Their wonderful apartment has been our home away from home this year, where we were able to rest and recharge in between trekking trips to the Alps and the Himalaya. And we will miss it. My husband, our teenage sons including myself looked forward each time to the comforts of home, the super comfortable beds, the hot showers, the small, but well-equipped kitchen where we could prepare breakfasts and lunches and even cook dinner if necessary. We really enjoyed being able to use their bicycles to ride around Hattersheim and the close proximity of the apartment to the S-Bahn Station that would take us to the center of Frankfurt. After the heat spell in July our hosts installed an air conditioning system, which made the apartment perfectly comfortable even during hot days. We were thrilled to have it, because it is not common to find air conditioning in German private homes. (…) The apartment is very tastefully furnished and decorated and offers so many ways to pass the time with Wifi, TV, books, music CDs and countless challenging games. We are delighted with our hosts, who continuously invest to make our stay more enjoyable and improve things to offer guests the highest possible standard of living at a fair price. We are impressed with their attention to detail and their availability to answer questions and willingness to help out when needed. Dorothee and Volker share a commitment to make us feel at home.
“Thumbs up” for all-round great service and “5 stars” for these super friendly, helpful, and dedicated hosts. We recommend them 100%!
My family of 4 stayed here for one night on our recent vacation. Dorothee & Volker were amazing hosts and we had a fantastic stay! The space is incredibly clean, private and very comfortable. Their attention to detail and level of hospitality is truly unbelievable. Dorothee greeted us with printed directions & information for the restaurant we intended to dine at that evening. She also gave us excellent information about how to take the S-Bahn into Frankfurt, which stop to get out at, and then she dropped us off at the station (though it was actually a very easy walk!) The German-style breakfast was also amazing with more food and choices than the four of us could consume. We have already suggested it to one friend and highly, highly recommend booking here!
We loved everything about staying here - the level of attention and hospitality were truly above and beyond. Thank you Dorothee & Volker for an exceptional stay. We wished it was longer!
Dorothee and Volker were really welcoming. Dorothee was giving us all the needed information, gave us maps, said that if we need anything - we just simply can ask her. They were really helpful and friendly. The flat was neat, enough space for 3 people, but I would say there would be enough room for 4 people. The bathroom is everything you could ask for while on a trip. There is also a kitchen there, a TV and a huge sofa. The bedrooms are lit with light and are very comfortable. I would highly recommend this place for anyone, who wants to spend a holiday in Hattersheim.
Our family of four had a wonderful and relaxing stay with Dorothee and Volker in Hattersheim (…). This was our second stay in their upstairs apartment. It had everything that we needed including cooking facilities, a small refrigerator, bathroom with shower, and plenty of space for the four of us to stretch out in and have some privacy from time to time (which means a lot when you have two teenagers). It was quite hot during some days of our stay and our hosts generously supplied us with two good-sized fans for each living space. Along with the open windows, the fans kept our rooms at reasonable temperatures for most of the time even when the outside temperatures exceeded 35 C. We especially appreciated the use of four bicycles, equipped with lights, locks, and racks or baskets so that we could explore the region on its beautiful web of bicycle trails and go shopping and run errands. They allowed us to escape to the great local swimming pool during the hot times! Dorothee and Volker were always available and happy to answer any questions we had about the area, how to get around, where to buy things that we needed (including where some of the best bargins were to be found), and where we could go to get some of our outdoor equipment fixed. We cannot imagine a couple of more cheerful, friendly, and helpful hosts! We will certainly be back.
Dorothee was in close contact with me from the beginning and very helpful in giving explicit instructions for navigating(….). Even though we still managed to be late arriving at the closest station, Dorothee and Volker very kindly met us and brought us to their home by car so that we didn’t have to walk with all of our luggage. The rooms are beautiful, and Dorothee and Volker have thought of everything! Dorothee suggested things to see in our very short stay, and we had a very enjoyable day and a half of sightseeing with a comfortable night’s rest. For a small fee, Dorothee and Volker put on an incredible breakfast and later drove us to the airport. They are very kind, thoughtful and generous hosts, and I hope that we will be able to stay there again! Dorothee and Volker have pretty much thought of everything, and I wish we could have stayed longer.
Even before we met, Dorothee and Volker were very kind and efficient! Dorothee made sure we would be settled properly before we arrived, and they even arranged to pick us up at the train station to their house. :] Come to live at Dorothee and Volker’s home if you want a) warm, friendly smiles b) to live in the most amazingly cool German house c) eat the most scrumptious, breakfast feast! I highly recommend this abode to anyone. We will definitely stay with Dorothee and Volker if we come into Frankfurt again in the future.
This was a fantastic airbnb experience. The flat was extremely clean and very quiet and Dorothee and Volker were lovely hosts. There were so many thoughtful touches provided by Dorothee, such as mini toiletries laid out for each of us in the bathroom and specialty teas left in the kitchenette for us to help ourselves to. We had everything – and more! – that we needed for a comfortable and enjoyable stay: comfy beds, great shower, TV, radio – all you would want. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful: cheeses, meats, croissants, jams and honey, fruit, yoghurts – and excellent coffee made by Volker. So, Dorothee and Volter, thank you so much for your kindness, thoughtfulness, patience, spirit and generosity – our lovely little flat had all we wanted and we would recommend you to everyone (except when we want to return).
Dorothee and Volker gave me a heartiest welcome at their place: they brought me from and to the airport (which was extremely pleasant after my exhausting journey) and decorated the breakfast table with a beautiful bouquet of bright flowers! The hosts are very nice people with a sympathetic attitude to the guest. The service was perfect: all clean (perfectly clean) and neat, the room was warm, the breakfast was tasty:) the quality justifies the price to the full. I’d definitely stay there again!
