There are three bedrooms, a living room, fully equipped kitchen, a balcony, a toilet, and a bathroom with sauna. The bedroom downstairs has 1 double bed. The first bedroom in the loft area has 1 comfortable sofa-bed. The second has a baby bed and it can also be equipped with 2 single beds or with 1 inflatable double bed.

A wireless internet connection is available in every room.
★ Guest access
Even though the apartment is our home, we'll stay elsewhere during your visit. So, you'll have full privacy and access to all of the rooms of the apartment excluding the study (located in the loft area). You are free to use the kitchen to cook your own food. There's also an à la carte restaurant and a pizzeria located in the building (in the hotel lobby).
The cabinets in the bedrooms have our things in them, but we make sure that there is also some room in each of the cabinets for your clothes and things.

When you arrive, we show you the rooms and instruct you on how to use the appliances (e.g. the sauna stove). We are also more than happy to give you tips on what to do in Tampere whether you are staying only for a day or longer. We have also up-to-date Tampere guide books for you to borrow.
If you are staying in our place for several days, we might need to come by and get something from the apartment during your stay. In such a case, we will let you know beforehand.

Jussi & Kati have a stunning apartment, and we were made to feel very welcome when we arrived. The arrangements went smoothly and emails were answered quickly - both before and during our stay. The apartment was just as described, and was vey comfortable, light and stylish. We stayed over Christmas, and their well designed and equipped kitchen made preparing big family meals a pleasure. We'll especially miss the sauna of course! We travelled with our 2 year old daughter, and she really enjoyed the stay too, with some fun toys and infant equipment provided for us to use. The apartment is a short bus ride from the centre of Tampere, and we never had to wait long for a bus. If you're feeling energetic, the nearby woods and lake make for a lovely walk. The local supermarket is only a short walk away, plus the hotel next door has a bar and restaurant. Jussi & Kati were very friendly, and we want to thank them for inviting us into their fantastic home. Definitely our first choice next time we're in Tampere.
Excellent accueil de nos Hôtes. Très bel appartement où nous avons pu trouver nos aises à 5.
Belle décoration, immeuble de standing.
Un peu excentré du centre ville mais une fois calé sur les horaires du bus n°2 qui mène au centre ville en 10 minutes tout va bien !
Bref excellente adresse et hôtes très agréables que nous recommandons.
Asunto oli aivan upea, suorastaan hotellitasoa. Esillä oli shampoot, valikoima petivaatteita ja kahvia sekä teetä. Kaikki toimi hienosti, suosittelen!
We stayed at Jussi and Kati's place for one night. Everything went well and the apartment is absolutely amazing :) Thank you for everything!
The apartment was fantastic! The host family welcomed us with open arms and gave a thorough introduction to the appliances in the flat such as the sauna etc. The apartment exceeded its description and was truly luxurious. Very clean, spacious and airy with fantastic design details and a warm feeling. We felt very at home! We were provided with all necessities such as towels, shampoo, tea, coffee etc. and we were even able to rent their bikes that were in excellent condition.
The apartment is located a comfortable distance from the city centre, 15-20 mins by foo,t 10 mins by bus. The building is surrounded by nature and right next to Tampere's biggest lake that can be viewed from the apartment.
Jussi and Kati were very generous and flexible and it was a pleasure to meet them. We can definitely see ourselves staying with them again upon return to Tampere.
We had 2 beautifull days in Jussi's and Kathi's wonderfull Loft!!!
The apartment corresponds exactly to the description: its beautifull and nearly to the City-center, the equipment is modern. We were 5 person and each one had enough place to be happy! Kathi and Jussi are very lovely, hospitable and helpful!
Quiet apartment in a quiet and beautiful area of Tampere. The apartment is exactly like photos, our stay at the apartment was short, only 2 nights but we had all the commodities that we needed.
There is a bus near the apartment, number 2, that leave you in the city center.
Jussi and kati were really kindly with us.
I recommend it.
