Mycket trevlig lagenhet med perfekt lage nara bade city och naturen.
After two weeks of traveling around Sweden, staying in hostels and small hotels, it was a joy to settle into this comfortable apartment home on a gorgeous little island for a few days, not far from the center of Stockholm. Ingela was very welcoming and helpful when we arrived. The piano was a nice surprise, I enjoyed playing it, and there is a funky little washing machine that gets the job done! The bus stop is just a half block from the front door, and there is a sweet little town center a short walk away with several restaurants, a grocery, and coffee shops. The bus ride into downtown Stockholm takes about 15-20 minutes. A great place to explore Stockholm from if you are planning on staying awhile.
The apartment was cozy, bit small for 5, better for a smaller group. The owner was very responsive. The washing machine in the apartment is bit shaky, but seems there are shared washing system available in the basement. Does not appear very cleans in some corners.
Fine nature and near to the city. Fast bus.
We are a family of 4 who had a long weekend in Stockholm as the start of a Swedish holiday. The apartment is comfortable and convenient for public transport. Lovely river bathing spot within walking distance, but unfortunately only found this on the last night.
