Colorful friendly flat on top floor at The Main square (Stora torget). Surrounded by restaurants, shopping, theater, university faculties, botanical gardens + all the city has to offer. Bike and one week breakfast included :) Close to central station

The space

It does not get more central than this. Stora torget - Main Square - is just outside the door. You are right on the walking street and at the other side of the next building is the river with its picturesque atmosphere (see photos).

The first photo shows you the view from the apartment and coming out from the backside of the building you arrive at the old square near the Cathedral (you can see the top half of it- see photos), you also see some lecture halls for the Peace and conflict department of Uppsala university plus a roof terrace at the second floor just below us. Please see the photo taken from the room :)

The flat is a colorful and friendly place with a roof terrace where you can barbecue hot dogs or just sit and read. There are only four apartments in the building so the huge terrace is always available.

Check in/out is very flexible :)


We provide a healthy self service breakfast during your first week which is complimentary/free. It includes:

* Organic müesli
* Organic / ecological milk
* Organic / ecological marmalade and Swedish butter
* Healthy bread
* Tea and coffee
* Organic/ eco apple juice


* You will also have full access to cook in the kitchen and you have your own place in the fridge and freezer for your breakfast and other food stuff.

Please note that we are vegetarians and do not allow cooking red meat
(lamb and pork, veal) in the kitchen. Chicken is OK though.

We offer the true Airbnb experience as you will share our home with us since we also live here ourselves. We can give tips and advice or share some meals especially if you are here for a longer period of time. If you rather prefer to keep to yourself that is fine too :)

If you want a whole apartment for yourself there are many other Airbnbs or hotels in Uppsala to choose from. Ours is on the main square and we promise to take good care of you. We also have a son who is 19 and who lives with us . He has his own room, he is nice, helpful and keeps everything very clean :)

Guest access

* All guests are always welcome to borrow one of our bikes :)

* You are also welcome to barbecue on the roof terrace

* There is a laundry room in the basement free of charge.
(just tell us in advance and we'll book it for you)

* Full access to our kitchen and cooking :)

Feel free to use our spices!

- We'll be glad to invite you to share a (probably vegetarian) meal or two with us if we are at home :)

Interaction with guests

We are more than happy to show you around town or go on a bike tour along the river :)

If you want tips about what to do just tell us. We know the city and its surroundings quite well.

* If you're the kind of person who just like to hang around by yourself in your room, that is fine too. We will just welcome you and should you have any questions we'll be happy to answer them.
We'll probably run in to each other in the kitchen or hallway from time to time :)

Other things to note

* We provide good quality bed linens, shampoo & shower gel, and there is also hair dryer to borrow :)

* The bed is 120 cm wide and 210 cm long, on the smaller side if you are two.

* High speed Wi - Fi 30-64 GB/sec

* We have no microwave but a fast electric glass oven/stove

* We do not have a dishwasher

* We have one more bedroom that we sometimes have one guest in for shorter stays. If that is a concern to you please let us know when you make your booking and we will block the dates for the other room during your stay with us :) so that you will be the only one here with us. Please tell us before you book in case someone already has booked a night or two in the other room.

* In Sweden house keys are governed by a system so they cannot be copied which means that if you loose your key they whole cylinder has to be changed and new keys made. This is the same everywhere in Sweden so even if you find your own place eventually keep this in mind since changing locks costs between two - three K SEK.

Please note that we are vegetarians and do not allow cooking red meat
(lamb and pork, veal) in the kitchen. Chicken is OK though.

* The tap water is drinkable

House Rules
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events
Not safe or suitable for children (0-12 years)

A common thing in Sweden is to take off your shoes at the door so that will be greatly appreciated.

It also keeps the house clean ;)

* Please respect that this is our home and we live here so drunk and disorderly behavior is not really OK.

Mutual respect and kindness will do just fine.

* No parties or pre-parties please.

* Smoking is OK only outside at the terrace.

For long term guests:

We like our home very clean :)

Kitchen:

Please ...
* no cooking of pork or lamb

* clean the stove after each time you cook

* leave the kitchen very clean after cooking:

- Wipe off the table, sink and the cooking surfaces every time the're used.

- Please pick up anything that falls on the floor (crumbs etc.) and keep even the place under the sink clean.

* We recycle so it is important to open packages, milk boxes etc. and actually wash them like the dishes before recycling.
The other option is to just throw them into the trash bin. Your choice :)

Bathroom

* clean the bathtub from hair etc after using it

Your room:

* please don't store food in the room. If there is not enough place in the kitchen just tell us and we'll try to make more room.

Please vacuum it once a week :) or every two weeks

Our and your room:

We will never go into your room without your permission. If something needs to be fixed we will ask you first.

The same way we expect you to respect our room to be private when we are not at home. In case you need anything please just ask first.

Sorry if some of these things seem crazy but different homes and people have different customs so what seems normal for some is different for others ;) No offence intended. The great thing with Airbnb is that we meet and enjoy our time together in a relaxed atmosphere. Our home is your home :)

Thank you and welcome.

Perfect love!

Maja and David were really friendly hosts. They were welcoming me with open arms. The room was nice and I had enough space for all my stuff. There was a folder on the desk with information about the WiFi, the laundry room, the garage and the surrounding of the apartment. It was really helpful for the orientation during the first days. They provided me towels, bedclothes, shampoo, conditioner and the breakfast for the first week was included. I got my own space in the fridge, freezer and in the bathroom. During my whole stay I could borrow their bike. Maja and David were always helpful and friendly. They were fantastic hosts and always asking me if everything is fine or if there is anything they could do for me. I felt comfortable the whole time. I would definitely stay there again :)

David & Maja are super friendly people and absolutely wonderful hosts who think about their guest and try to make things go smoothly! They took me to their place and made me feel really welcome from the very beginning with small little things and with well-organized infos. Everything were just as they said beforehand, or even better. The location of their apartment is excellent - in the center of Uppsala but still peacefully towards back yard. The room was clean, airy, comfortable and the bed cosy but not too soft, in fact, better than in many hotels. But still, for a month it felt like home. Thanks again M&D!

Maja and David were great hosts. They contacted me before hand to make sure they could provide me with everything I needed for my stay. I have never seen such kindness before! David picked me up at Uppsala Central Station in the morning! We walked around 10 min to their place in Stora torget. The flat is lovely and extremely clean ( I have never seen something cleaner). The bedroom was very spacious with a desk, a roomy bed, closet and a big mirror. They provided me with a hair dryer, clean towels, shampoo and body wash. It was great! I would have loved to spend more time in their flat, but I had an intensive course in Uppsala University and I was out until late almost every night. They were very flexible with that and one night they even cook dinner for me! We had a lovely chat and we got to know each other more. They are very open, friendly, thoughtful and positive. I must highlight the cleanliness of the place, everything was spotless: bathroom, kitchen and the bedroom where I stay. The apartment was very central and with great connections by bus to other places in Uppsala. I highly recommend staying with Maja and David, you will have a great time :)
