The Space

I want you to experience Stockholm. You will be staying in an Old Town house where you can rest and discover the city.

We live in a charming apartment in the heart of historical Gamla Stan, just a few minutes walk to the Royal Palace. Our house has a history of hospitality. The inn- keeper Baltzar Neukirch opened his business here in 1699 and for almost 200 years travelers got food and shelter in what was lately known as Hotel Riga.

We live on the third floor. It is an old building without an elevator. So if you have mobility problem, please keep in mind that you need to be able to walk stairs.

We are a family of three (me -Elcin- my husband Johannes and our baby Otto-Simourg). As your Airbnb host I will happily show you my favorite places in Stockholm or I can be considerate and leave you alone. Please tell me how you want.

In addition to our own bedroom and a spacious living room we also have two guest rooms. Both of them are situated in back of the house and well protected from any noise from the street -or, if our baby would wake up in a cranky mood.

One of the rooms is light with a big window, the other one is slightly larger and is part of the medieval wing of the building and has a small window. The upper guestroom has a double bed 120 cm wide and the lower guestroom has two single beds (200*80 cm) that can be put together as one double. This room also has a foldable bed for a third person. Please (email hidden) for a plan of our apartment to understand the out lay of our place. Bed linen and towels are of course provided.

A healthy breakfast is served in the dining area or -if the weather permits- in our private roof terrace and is included in the price.

We have two guest rooms. Lower room and Upper Room.

If you book for 3 or 4 persons, you will get both rooms.

If you are more than 4, pls first contact with me and lets see how we can arrange your stay.

Location is as good as it can be. We live in the historical part of Stockholm. Our apartment dates back to 15th cc. It's just 2 minutes walk from Royal Palace and Nobel Museum so you have easy access to many touristy places as well. A bus stop (Slottsbacken means Palace yard) is 100 metres away, metro station 500 metres and the central station is a 15 minutes walk.

Breakfast is included in the price. Coffee/tea, nice bread, two type of cheese, jam, honey, eggs, fruit juice, musli,corn flakes, milk and yogurt . I can prepare for you till 10am. for later, you can take from the fridge as you wish.

During the day; you can pick fruits , cakes (I bake a few times in a week) and breakfast stuff from fridge. You can prepare sandwiches , coffee and tea also any time of the day.

I hope my place will be your second home in Stockholm.

Washing clothes is for free during your stay. Also for your special suits you can use our steam dry cleaner (Whirlpool Pret-a-Porter). It cleanse the odor and some light stains and freshens and lightly irons suits/coats.

We have wifi plus
During your stay you can borrow a simcard which I hold for guests. So this can ease your visit also outside of the house.

We do not charge for children under 12 if they are in the same room with parents. In the lower room we can add an extra bed for the child.. We can share some toys. Children welcome :)

For some days you can borrow Otto Simourg's pram also.

Please do not hestitate to take fruits,tea or coffe.
But no cooking in my kitchen. Practically it is too complex . If you have a special need or plan, pls share and lets see how can i help..

We also have another listing: 'Private apartment in Old Town` which can be booked for 3 double beds in
2 sleeping rooms + 1 extra bed+ 1 double bed sofa in the living room. We have a screen to separate the sleeping area from the rest of the room.
The private apartment listing is only available at times when we are not in Stockholm ourselves but we will be in our summer house which is 1 h distance. In case of a need we can show up.

In our neighborhood there is a very small historical swimming pool with a sauna which is open to service only in midweek from (phone number hidden). Entrance fee is 40kr. It is quite a small one and old as 1750`s. It is where locals hang. If you book advance, you can get a good massage
I usually go. So just ask me , I can organize..

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Eine wunderschöne, gemütliche, saubere Altbauwohnung im Herzen von Stockholm. Wir wurden herzlich willkommen geheißen und mit allem was man benötigt (Informationen, Regenschirm, ein gutes Frühstück... etc) ausgestattet. Allerdings braucht die Rose auf der Dachterasse, von wo man einen genialen Blick auf die Dachgiebel einer alten Straße hat, dringend einen größeren Topf mit Erde :-)
    Mein Mann und ich kommen sehr gerne wieder!!

  • We had a very enjoyable weekend stay with Pinar and family. Their apartment is perfectly situated in the old town and is a fascinating property. The weather was so warm and sunny that we were able to eat our breakfast on the terrace which links the two sections of the apartment which date from different periods.
    The rooms were very comfortable and we were provided with both bath and hand towels.
    Pinar is an excellent cook and provided us with two excellent breakfasts which filled us up ready for a day exporing the beautiful city of Stockholm.
    Would recommend this property to anyone wanting a base in the Old Town and staying within a family environment.

  • The apartment is very comfortable and tastefully decorated - the children called it "home" after one day. The location is excellent and it was wonderful to stay right in the middle of the old town of Stockholm.

    We did not meet Elcin but she left very good instructions, a telephone number and very quickly replied to emails. We had everything we needed and everything was just perfect. I highly recommend this host.

  • Me and my friends stayed in Pinar Elcin's cosy and lovely flat for 3 nights. Pinar Elcin and Johannes are great hosts and cooks. Every morning Joannes served us delicious breakfast including desserts. Pinar Elcin gave us fantastic ideas what to do in Stockholm and did her best to make us feel at home. Pinar Elcin has Circassian roots and she loves to travel. They have an adorable son named " Otto Simurg Furkan Johannes Matt". Otto is 18 months old , one of the most cutiest and funniest baby boy I have ever seen. He started socialize with us as soon as we arrived.
    The apartment is very central. It is right at the heart of Stockholm. So u can go by walk anywhere u want. I do highly recommend to stay there and meet that lovely , warm and kind family.
