Large (~20 square meters), private room in shared, 2-bedroom apartment. I live in the other room. Apartment is located in the middle of Södermalm, Stockholm's most vibrant island! Shared kitchen & bathroom. Laundry room & internet included.
My boyfriend and I stayed with Alex for two nights and had a truly lovely experience. He was so accommodating and genuinely nice, and an immense help in deciding what to do while in Stockholm. The location was great, very close to several restaurants, shops, and attractions, and not far from the harbor or train station either. The room was large and the bed was comfortable, and there was nothing more we could have wanted. Thanks so much, Alex!
The location of this flat is perfect, it's directly above the subway stop. The room is very large and also quiet, and the bed is comfortable. I feel bad writing a negative review because Alex was absolutely wonderful - he even accommodated my silly mistake of booking the wrong day, and gave me some great local restaurant recommendations. But as a frequent Air BNB guest, I feel I have to mention that the unit isn't clean. The shower was dirty and the drain clogged so dirty water pooled at my feet. If I had been staying in Stockholm much longer I think I'd have found a different place.
Risposta di Alex:
Sorry about that Lauren, you're totally right, the drain was clogged and the bathtub was not its cleanest at the time of your stay. It was a busy period before you arrived and the drain had only recently become clogged, so I had no time to fix it. Shortly after you left both things were fixed (drained unblocked, bath cleaned).
He came earlier than usual to welcome us, very kind gesture> The neighborhood was full of life and a lot of shops.
The true Stockholm experience!! The location is amazing. Smack dab in the middle of the city, about 40 meters away from the metro, and loads of things to do. My stay here was fantastic!! It was everything I could have imagined. Alex is a great host. When I got there, he showed me around, gave me everything that I needed, and even offered recommendations for things to do, and places to eat around the area. It felt very natural, just like he was going through his everyday routine, and I just happened to stop by. I will definitely be renting this place every time I come back to Stockholm. Thanks Alex!!
I'm originally from New Zealand, but for the last four years I've lived in Stockholm, where I currently work for a small start-up company - as a computer science researcher. Because of my job I have to travel a lot, to conferences for example, but I have no love for hotels, so …
