Mirco's apartment was really handy, a 10/15 minute walk from the city centre and an even shorter walk from the trams (depending on your destination) if you prefer to visit areas on the outskirts of the centre (e.g. Plagwitz, Connewitz). If you feel like sticking local, Gottschedstrasse just up the road has several restaurants and bars.
The apartment itself felt bigger than it looked on Airbnb photos and was bright and airy. It was clean and well kept, plus it had everything we needed. Despite being close to bars, the street that the apartment was on was quiet.
Very happy with our stay!
