A small room with upper and lower bed (lower bed 190 cm long, upper bed 200 cm long) in an apartment 4 km south from Tampere center. Room is a child´s playing room, so there are toys & things, but
there is room for two to sleep. If three guests coming, one person can sleep in a sofa in the living room or on a mattrass on the floor.
The house is a four-apartement house in a nice and quiet district.

Interaction with Guests
Family-like stay. I am working, sometimes busy, sometimes have more time with quests.
Nice old small-house district. Green gardens.
Other Things to Note

Majoituin Lauralle kurssimatkani kolmeksi yöksi sillä aikaa, kun he olivat itse matkoilla. Kaikki toimi joustavasti ja sovitusti. Paikka on hyvien bussiyhteyksien päässä keskustasta rauhallisella alueella. Kotoista ja mukava sänky :), suosittelen!
Kaikki toimi juuri niinkuin oli sovittu. Huone oli viihtyisä, siisti ja kodikas. Laura on avulias, yhteistyöhaluinen, ystävällinen ja joustava, samoin hänen poikansa.
Laura and her son were friendly and helpful hosts. They were kind enough to pick us up from the airport (for the price of the gas) and in general made us feel welcome.
This past week I had the pleasure of staying on the outskirts of Tampere in a lovely and cozy little room hosted by Laura Sahlbom. The room was exactly as advertised, if not even better. The blankets were positively cozy and I was even provided a towel for the shower. When I arrived, Laura offered all the information I could inquire about the surrounding area and even prepared some tea and treats. I would have been lost without her guidance in terms of the bus schedule and some general customs.
If you're looking to stay anywhere near Tampere, look no further.
