Spacious apartment living room in northwest Linköping with generous floor space for 1-2 good mattresses + a comfy sofa. Shared kitchen and bathroom. Near the Uni (10 minutes bike ride) and the city centre (10 minutes), with bikes to borrow.
If you need a quality budget stay for over-night stays near the centre of Linköping with easy access to the university, this is the place for you! The total apartment area is 59 sqm, out of which the living room that you will be renting is a spacious 20 sqm. We have two really good guest mattresses measuring 80 x 200 x 12 cm or if you prefer having more floor space free, there is a very comfy sofa measuring 76 x 192 cm inner space that works well for sleeping too.
All linen and towels are included for your stay, as well as a solid breakfast of tea/coffee, bread, cheese, milk, muesli and fruit juice.
Besides plenty of comfortable sleeping space, the room also has a 42 inch flat screen TV with 16 cable TV channels, a DVD/blue-ray player and wireless internet WiFi. If you enjoy making your own music, we have a nearly brand new Roland RD700nx stage piano with top quality head phones and a Landola acoustic guitar that you are more than welcome to borrow as much as you want.
The room is accessed separately from our own bedroom through the shared hallway, and there is a door closing it off so you will have full privacy during the night. The room will be your own private haven for the hours of 21.00 p.m. until 09.00 a.m., although you are of course also free to use the rest of the shared apartment during these hours. In the daytime between 09.00 a.m. and 21.00 in the evening we offer shared use of the whole apartment including the living room with us, Hanna and K, and our little social kitty cat named Selma. We are both students, K studying Data Mining at the university and Hanna doing distance studies in paramedics. Our study schedules mean we have varying flexible hours in the daytime, and in the weekday evenings we are often out playing different sports.
As our guest you will have access to the lovely green communal inner courtyard including bar-b-q area and garden seating. Within the apartment you will have access to the shared kitchen and the bathroom with shower. There is free wifi, free car parking and the availability to borrow a bike(s) for the duration of your stay.
There will be a fair amount of interaction with the guests whenever we are home, though we may often be out during part of the days and usually be home only in the early afternoon and later evenings. We will ourselves sleep in the bedroom which is located across the hallway from the living room.
The best way to get around central Linköping and to the University is by bike, which you are always free to borrow during your stay. There are two local bus lines that frequent the block, no 1 towards Skäggetorp and no 18 towards Valla via Gottfridsberg. Both take 6 minutes from the central station and the local bus stops are Åbylund (no 1) respectively Skedagatan (no 18). The town centre is about 1,5 km away which takes 8 min to cycle alternatively 20 min to walk, and we often like to promenade to the centre for cinema evenings or when occasionally eating out.
Specific travel directions are as follows:
At Linköping travel center (bus/train station), take bus line 1 towards Skäggetorp. Get off at Blomgatan. Walk from Blomgatan to Kagagatan 7 Linköping. It takes 6 minutes according to the website.
At Linköping travel center (bus/train station), take bus line 18 towards Eastern Valla via Gottfridsberg. Get off at Skedagatan. Walk from Skedagatan to Kagagatan 7 Linköping.
Walking you should take Vasavägen from the central station. At the large roundabout take the pedestrian underpass under Västravägen. Walk up Hjälmgatan. At the primary school there is a path to the right, take this and follow the path to the top of the hill, that is Kagagatan. It is 2.1 km and takes 28 minutes according to (website hidden).
Note that we have a cat in the household, so it may not be suitable if you have a cat allergy.
The room will be your own private haven for the hours of 21.00 until 09.00 a.m., although you are of course also free to use the rest of the shared apartment during these hours. Please note that in the daytime - between 09.00 in the morning and 21.00 in the evening - you will be sharing the use of the living room with us, Hanna and K, and our little social kitty cat named Selma. Thus this accommodation is best suited for vacational visits where you plan on seeing Linköping and the surrounding areas in the days, alternatively job related stays where you work away from the home in the daytime.
The perfect hosts! I had no problems in establishing contact and agreeing on how and when to get access. K & H were delightful and welcoming hosts and also shared useful tips about the city centre.The experience definitely matched their AirBnB description. I gladly recommend staying with them.
I had a really good time at Hanna's and Keith' apartment. Both of them are really helpful and they gave me lots of tips and advices to make the most of my stay in Linköping. Hanna and Keith are both very open-minded and so I enjoyed the conversations with them.
For me it was not a problem to stay in the living-room. Even though this room is open for everybody at daytimes I always had the feeling that I can withdraw myself into the room if I needed to. I would stay there again!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
