Quiet, central and affordable room

Apartment - Private room · Alriksgatan, Uppsala, Uppsala County 75330, Sweden

Own room in 2-room flat. The area "Höganäs" is close to the city centre (10 min), the central station (7 min) and has both great restaurants and green surroundings. The recently renovated bathroom and kitchen is shared with me. Wifi included.

The twin bed is 200*160cm² and can be split into two by request. Towels and bed sheets are included and can be changed when you like. Cleaning fee is included in the price.

The room is 10m² and faces the inner courtyard, cars rarely enter the courtyard which means it is quiet.

Washer and dryer is available in the building, but needs to be booked at least 2 weeks before, please let me know if you will need it.

Breakfast will be available in the shared kitchen, and you will prepare it yourself at your convenience.

I live in the other room in the flat, and when I am not home I will be available on phone or text. I have lived in Uppsala for over five years and know where you find great restaurants and other great spots, what I do not know I can find out. I speak Swedish and English. Feel free to ask me anything, I will be happy to help!

Höganäs is a safe and quiet area in central Uppsala. It is close to the central station where there are plenty of trains every hour taking you to Stockholm in 38 min. and Arlanda airport in 17 min.

There are several good restaurants nearby including Sushi, Greek, Persian and Pizza. There is also two parks nearby, a big (Gränby park) and a smaller (Höganäsparken), perfect for a jog or evening walk.

Getting around in Uppsala:
Most people in Uppsala gets around by bike. Luckily I have a basic one to lend you, I'll just need a deposit of SEK 1000 in case something happens, but if the bike is returned so is the deposit off course.

If you need more than one bike or a better model you can rent bikes in town for SEK 200 for the first day and then SEK 100/day.

Typically you will not need to use public transport, however if you wish to travel around outside central Uppsala it might be easiest to take the bus. The bus station "Kvarntorget" is a three minute walk away.

There is also a good supply of taxis should you need it.

Schedules and information about Uppsala public transit is available @ UL's website.

Getting to Stockholm:
It's easy to travel from Uppsala to Stockholm, many people commute every day. Several trains leave every hour, from 5 in the morning until 22 at night. The train ride is about 38 min. and will normally cost you SEK 84.

The trains stop at Stockholm central station. If you go by SL commuter train they also stop at many locations in Stockholm.

A taxi ride to or from Stockholm will set you back at least SEK 1200.

  • I had a wonderful stay in Uppsala @ Matthias' place. It's a nice apartment, close to the centre, in a nice neighbourhood. Matthias is a kind and well educated host, who made me really feel at home. And I could borrow his bike when i needed. In the end i think i'll surely contact him again if i go back to Uppsala.

I work as a web strategist here in Uppsala where I've lived for five years. Originally I'm from Göteborg but I've lived in Stockholm and Berlin as well. As a host it's important for me to make the guest feel welcome. I like to travel to european cities and warm places. I'm fluent in English and Swedish and I also speak ein bischen deutsch :-) Feel free to ask me anything!
