Spacious apartment 15 min walk from old town, 5 min from Seaplane Harbour museum, near park, in a green district of cultural and environmental value.
Apartment has two floors - a private double bed on lower ground floor and a small single bedroom on first floor plus large common area on first floor with open kitchen. A fourth person can spend overnight on a fold up bed. Big windows, a lot of light. Possibility to use the large common backyard. The house is rather romantically run-down and the apartment lived-in, but roomy and all one needs for living is in place, so it is good value for the price. All expences included.
Free parking on the street in front of the house. You can see the car from the apartment windows. Free wireless internet.
There is a shower on the lower ground floor, WC on the first floor. Kitchen is equipped with diswasher, fridge, electric stove, vent hood.
Going to the city centre and back from the apartment is very comfortable by bus: modern convenient line no 3 from Kungla stop, 50 m from the apartment. Stops near Kultuurikatel, Old Town, Coca-Cola plaza cinema, Viru Keskus shopping centre and transportation hub.
In the neighborhood live artists, actors, young people, just generally nice people. Small shops, bakeries, pubs, restaurants are starting to appear - here are some of my favourites: F-hoone (great food for fair price), Boheem, Kukeke, Kamahouse (have the red cup of coffee, refills for free), Tops, Kalamaja Pagarikoda (mm, pastry..); all within 10 minutes walk. Of course one can not forget the new cafe in Seaplane Harbour museum, it is worth visiting also without going to the museum as no ticket is needed for the cafe, and one can get a view from the above to the spectacular exhibition inside. Also you can walk along the harbour side enjoying view to the sea, the museum territory is open for visitors and closest access to sea 5 min walk from the apartment.
Liina was amazing! She picked us up from the ferry and gave us great recommendations for food, kept our bags until our late flight. I can not imagine a better host. Her place was wonderful. It is close to old town, just as advertised, and it had plenty of room and lots of character. It was nice to be just out of the tourist fray and in with the locals. Carol
