Herzlichen Dank an Christian für die Gastfreundschaft. Ich habe den Aufenthalt in seiner individuell eingerichteten Wohnung sehr genossen. Die Nähe zum Bahnhof und zur Altstadt habe ich sehr geschätzt. Zur Wohnung gehört ein Vorgarten, der zum Zeitung lesen einlädt. Ich kann den Ort gerne weiter empfehlen.
Christian Gafner ist ein herzlicher und zuvorkommender Gastgeber.
Ich kann einen Aufenthalt bei Ihm wärmstens empfehlen.
Cool spacious flat with two floors, several rooms for rent, house and flat are charmingly vintage, very well located close to main railway station and close (5-10 min by foot) to old town / town centre. Christian and his son were very nice, welcoming and helpful. My booking was sort of last minute, then I wanted to modify it (for one more night), and Christian helped to make it work. He prepared stuff for my breakfast (though not included), to make it easier for me. And one night when I came home late, they shared with me a delicious pizza they had made. I can warmly recommend it.
Wir haben uns bei Christian wirklich wohl gefühlt. Die Wohnung ist wirklich wunderschön und individuell und hat so ein gemütliches Ambiente, dass wir uns wie zuhause fühlten. Christian war für uns immer erreichbar, aber hat es auch verstanden uns Raum zu geben. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder!!! Top und einfach zum weiterempfehlen!
Comme toujours l'accueil de Chrisitan, l'hôte, était sympathique et toujours disponible à aider. Merci encore. C'était parfait.

Super Gastgeber, super Wohnung...würde ich jederzeit wieder wohnen.
- Danke -
For the first time using Air BnB it was a great experience, much better than a traditional boring hotel. Christian is genuinely personable, friendly, and helpful.
The accommodation is exactly as presented, it was clean and well-kept with much character. The neighborhood was fine, a walk across bridge to the walled city of Solothurn. I would recommend this to everyone.
