"A place with character in a wonderful location in a great city!"

How often do you get to stay in a place that is Bohemian in style? Kristina has put a lot of thought into decorating this apartment and I really enjoyed the experience. I stayed two nights and then ca… More

"Fun and quirky."

We had a lovely time in this apartment. Kristine, the owner, was very flexible and easy to work with. The flat has thick stone/brick walls, with arches throughout. Watch your head if you're on the tall side. The decorations were original, and gave a sense of fun. Perhaps the best feature was the working fireplace and supply of wood. Fast, easy wi-fi was also nice. There's a flat-screen tv which gets no channels, but we brought our iPod cable and watched movies we'd brought with us. There's a stereo and a small selection of CDs and movies on DVD.
The bed was on the sparse side, but comfortable enough.
What's not obvious from the website is that there are no windows at all. This goes along with it being a basement flat, but we hadn't figured it out until we got there. It wasn't an issue for us, but know before you go.
The flat is spacious overall, with a small efficiency kitchen. There's everything you need for small-scale cooking, but you wouldn't want to do more than fry a couple of eggs.
The bath is tiny.
It's a beautiful flat, tons of fun if you have the right mindset. If you want a modern, standard hotel room, book elsewhere. If you're a bit quirky, willing to be flexible in some points so you can stay in an incredibly original, beautiful flat, with more room and a better rate than you'd ever get in a hotel, than this could be the place for you.
