Gisela ist eine perfekte Gastgeberin. Sie ist überaus hilfsbereit - sie nahm uns gleich mit zum Supermarkt - und hat sich an alle Vereinbarungen gehalten. Wir haben uns vom ersten Augenblick an wohl gefühlt. Die Wohnung ist super schön und gemütlich eingerichtet und sehr hell. Die Lage ist perfekt, um Stockholm zu erkunden. Sie liegt in einem ruhigen Villenvorort und man ist mit Bus und U-Bahn in 20 Minuten in der Innenstadt. Man kann die Wohnung nur weiter empfehlen.
My first trip to Stockholm was hugely enjoyable. We arrived early evening to a dry cold of -4 and a blanket of snow across the landscape. From the airport we boarded the train to central, got the subway to Ropsten, then the brief journey via the 201 bus to the street where the apartment is located in Lidingö.
Gisela greeted us upon arrival, showed us around and answered all our questions in a kind, friendly manner. The well supplied kitchen-living room combo has everything you might need for cooking while giving you an area to relax in.
The bedrooms are bright, cosy, and homely as Gisela uses the apartment herself. So there's a homely atmosphere while still being clean & organised for Airbnb visitors.
The apartment itself is situated in a beautiful, quiet suburb yet has a bus stop one minute away from your front door. Public transport in Stockholm is far better than in the UK and we never had to wait longer than five minutes or so for a bus or subway train.
The city has a lot to offer and the apartment enables you to enjoy the best of both worlds. Each night we returned to the apartment (courtesy of the punctual 201 bus at Ropsten) and enjoyed the quiet of the countryside despite being close to the city.
Between Airbnb and our 7-day travel card purchased at the airport, we got far better value for money compared to city center hotels and taxis. But more importantly you get a much better feel of the capital and surrounding area, and of course the people of Stockholm. I'm already looking forward to returning to experience a Summer trip there.
Nearly forgot - the WiFi in the apartment is reliable and coped fine with 6 devices (3 laptops, 3 phones).
Gisela was very nice and made us feel at home, we arrived at the late evening and Gisela waited for us with fresh food and public transport ticket... our kids were running like crazy in the house (after being cupped during the long flight) while she gave us a tour of the house and she was kind enough to ignored it... The house is great, very well represented and located in a quiet part of the city surrounded by nature, short ride from city center.
During the booking process we made the mistake of booking an extra night and Gisela was very helpful in sorting it.
During our stay a window was broken by the wind, Gisela immediately came and made sure it is fixed (during her work day).
We can not thank her enough for the great time we have there, we were very sad to come back from the holiday...
We spent four days in Giselas nice home. Perfect location for our conference at Foresta, just 5 min away by bus.
Gisela was an excellent host, even proposing to pick us up at the train station and then bringing us to the supermarket.
We had a great time in Stockholm and in Giselas appartment. It's a lovely, comfortable and great appartment and we felt like at home. The Location of the flat is also gorgeous because it's not directly in the city Center of Stockholm but it's very easy to get to it. Gisela is a lovely and wonderful host! She gave us a of helpfull tips and usefull Information for our trip! We (my family and i) had a great time in Giselas appartment and in Stockholm and we definitely wanna come back!
We had a warm welcome by Gisela. The townhouse felt immediately as our home. The beds were good and for us it was great that everybody had there own bedroom (2 boys 15 and 18 years old and us). We knew Lidingo a bit and we can advise it to everybody travelling to Stockholm. Especially if you travel by car Lidingo is a good place tot stay. We didn't intend to cook ourselves during our holiday, but it was nice coming home after a busy day in Stockholm and the townhouse had all the facilities to cook a proper meal. The busstop is in front of the house, so no worries about travelling into the city. Lots of information about Stockholm, timetables, subway available in the house, which is always nice. The mix between the hustle in the city and the quiteness of the island is great. For everybody travelling to Lidingo; visit Langengens gård for a coffee or lunch. You must have been there. If we go back to Stockholm we would very much like tot go back to Gisela's townhouse.
