Katrin kept in touch via Sms, provided good directions and information. She was traveling, but made every effort to be available. She also offered to reimburse us for some inconviences.
This was a lovely apartment, conveniently located for the subway that got us to the city centre very quickly. Well equipped kitchen and it was nice that some tea and coffee was there to use.
We were unable to meet Katrin, as she was on holiday, however she made arrangements for us to collect everything we needed to move in and communicated well and was easily contactable whenever we needed her - it was a smooth process.
The apartment was clean, comfortable and a great change from staying in small hotel rooms - the living room is particularly spacious! Kristineberg is a quiet, residential area, but the apartment is a nice short walk to the metro, which was very easy to use.
We had very great time in the apartment and it was exactly as in the pictures. It is in a very nice neighborhood. Perfect for families. a lot of playground around.
We didn't meet Katrin but she has been very helpful by phone.
We have fallen in love with Stockholm and with Katrin's apartment.
Katrin is a lovely host and was in touch with us every few days to make sure that all was going well. The flat is in a great location, just a few minutes' walk from a beautiful picnic area by the water, with plenty of restaurants and cafes nearby, as well as accessible public transit.
The flat itself, however, was not as comfortable as we had hoped for our family of three (2 adults + 1 baby). The lift was too small to fit the stroller, and there was no secure room/parking downstairs where to leave the stroller. The kitchen and bathroom are also too small to fit a high chair or baby sitter/bouncer, so it was impossible to keep an eye on the baby while cooking or using the bathroom. I would definitely not recommend it for families with babies.
The furnishings of the flat also had a bit of room for improvement. What was there was fine, but a few items that we consider basic were missing - such as a toaster, an extra roll of toilet paper, and light bulbs in the living room's ceiling lamp. I admit I did not call Katrin about all these items, as sorting them out myself seemed easier. Had I called her, I am sure she would have helped! She did provide a remote control for the TV when I signalled there was none!
In short, it's a beautiful location, but not the most comfortable flat, especially if you are travelling with a baby. I'd recommend it most for single/couple travellers who are planning on spending a lot of time enjoying the city, and not a lot of time in the flat!
Nice little clean and tidy apartment only 400m away from the subway station which is your gateway to downtown. Ideal for aviation enthusiasts as the house is situated on short final to Bromma airport. Yes, every now and again planes fly over the house when approaching Bromma airport but it was not too loud at all (only small airliners-only during day time!). Co-op supermarket opposite to the train station. Quiet neighbourhood. The new city district Hornsberg with the beautiful waterfront Hornsberg Strand is only 800m away. There are many restaurants and also many playgrounds for younger and elder kids (skateboarding pool) - 5mins walking time. We spent 4 great days in this beautiful Apartment! Will book again next time. Thanks again, Katrin
It was a nice place. Close to the central (10 Minutes) and only a few minutes to walk to the metro. The apartment was exactly the same as on the pictures.
Unfortunately we didn't met Katrin, but she was reachable per SMS/Mail all time and answered always within a few minutes!
We were five adult people and it was cosy.
We can absolutely recommend this place for a stay in Stockholm. There were also some travel guides in different languages in the flat, these were very useful for us.
The whole handling was very easy and uncomplicated!
