My little loft apartment has an eco-friendly interior appropriate to the wooden houses of Kalamaja district, complete with many recycled and vintage items and a bohemian vibe.
Since the loft floor is a new addition to an old house built early 20th century I designed it using environment-friendly materials, including repurposed wood, natural plaster and clay paint on walls, tadelakt in the bathroom etc.
It has one bedroom with a double bed, a joint toilet & bathroom with an open shower and a living room with an open kitchen. Several roof windows let in a lot of natural light (when it's not the nordic winter).
The kitchen with all the dishes and equipment is at your service for cooking. There is wireless internet available in the apartment like appropriate to an Estonian home and speakers for music.
The surrounding Kalamaja area is a hip district with lots of creative and fun things going on. It is a perfect mix of colourful wooden houses, industrial buildings from the beginning of the 20th century, soviet remnants and plenty of art and alternative culture. There's many places not to miss – download a mobile app called Like A Local Guide for more truly local discoveries in Tallinn.
My house is a 20-minute walk or a 5-minute bus ride from all the main attractions of the Old Town. The best public transport is bus number 3 that runs from various stops close to the Old Town, such as Mere pst or Linnahall. My stop is Kungla which is at the end of my block (also Kungla).
This flat is my first home and I only rent it out for weekends, occasionally also for longer when I am travelling, but when I am not hosting I actually live there, so the place is filled with the usual personal items you'll find in someone's home. I wouldn't recommend my apartment to someone with small children because of the many small things they could swallow.
We had a realy nice time in Ülane's flat. It's really stylish and convenient to reach city center from there. Ülane is a really good host, who have think about everything to make your stay pleasant. Definitely a good place to stay if you wanna visit Tallinn.
We had an amazing time at Ulane's place. It's a stylish and comfy flat, perfectly located not only for the Old Town but also the cafes and bars of Kalamaja, which is a really cool district. She was kind enough to provide us with breakfast cereals, bread, etc. which was lovely, and her Like A Local Map helped us find some great bars and attractions. Highly recommended!
Thanks Ulane for a nice place to stay! Appartament is very comfortable and cozy, we would love to live in it! :) Ulane was really helpful with arrival details and places to visit. Public transport or taxi is not necessary when you stay in this wooden district, you can reach everything by feet. We give 5 stars for Ulane`s loft!
Ulane's flat was all and more than promised. It was such a cozy, clean and relaxing base to explore Tallinn. Ulane has furnished her place with antique fittings and furniture, which adds to the cool vibe. Location is in the heart of the eclectic Kalamaja area, with funky cafes and great cheap eats! And Ulane was a fantastic host - so accommodating and helpful about check-in, settling us in with maps and city tips (offering her direct tourism experience and own city explorer App!). We felt at home in every way. One of the best AirBnB experiences we've had!
Добрый день! Мы очень рады, что выбрали для нашей поездки на Новогодние каникулы Таллин и замечательную квартиру "Bohemian loft in a wooden district". Квартира находится недалеко от центра города (10 минут пешком), в тихом спокойном районе, чистая и уютная, с чудесным интерьером, весьма функциональной кухней.
Рядом с домой находится парк, где приятно прогуляться, и новая современная культурная точка Таллина: Lennusadam (Летная гавань).
Все время нашего пребывания мы общались с хозяйкой Ülane Vilumets, она советовала куда пойти погулять и какое кафе выбрать для ужина.
В последний день нашего пребывания в городе мы встретились с Ульяной в кафе, пили кофе и разговаривали. Она позитивная, жизнерадостная девушка.
Нам с мужем очень понравилась поездка в Таллин, квартира "Bohemian loft in a wooden district" и ее замечательная хозяйка :))
Ülane is one of the greatest hosts I met while travelling with airbnb. She is super-responsive when it comes to communication, super-supportive for whatever you might want to know while being in Tallinn and the pictures of the apartment do not promise too much - it's just a beautiful apartment you'll definitely like. Besides that, Ülane and I discovered a lot of things we have in common while having brunch on our last day in Tallinn. I can highly recommend staying with her.
Ülane seemed to be a quite cool person when writing already. She offered to pick us up at the ferry, but we walked instead. It's a little tour, but it got us a very positive and nice first expression of Tallinn. The house is surrounded by many other beautiful ones all wooden, a great neighborhood! For everyone not wanting to take the 15 min walk to the center (which I would recommend), there is a bus stop right next to the house. The apartment itself is just astonishing, the pictures don't lie, I felt comfortable the minute I got there. And Ülane, what can I say, has been very open minded, accommodating, helpful, like I already said, a very cool person! She knows the "places to be"!
One of those places that makes you wonder if you'll ever want to stay in a hotel again when you're traveling for pleasure. Flat is very cute, exactly like the picture. The house is full of tasteful accessories that makes the stay delightful. Besides, when I checked in, the flat was 5-star-hotel-clean. The whole place seem recently renovated. Highly recommended!
I stayed a weekend with my boyfriend at Ülanes place and it was great! Firstly she replied really quickly to all of my e-mails and gave me lots of good information about Tallin, places to go to eat, hang out etc. She even came to pick us up from the harbor and brought us to her place. Everything went smoothly and I only have positive things to say. Also the area where the apartment is worth to watch,really :)
I would gladly recommend her place to everyone,and if I ever need a apartment in Tallin I would rent her place !
A wonderful apartment in charming residential area of Tallin. Super quiet, clean and chic. Ülane was a supportive host and arranged everything with the utmost care. Highly recommended!
