Reviews for this host's other properties
Together with a friend I spent 5 days at this lovely property. The location was perfect: 3 minutes walk to the nearest metro station and from there just a 5 minutes ride to the city center. The house was cosy and extremely paceful (we were almost in the forest but still being in the city) and the owner, Nils, was very welcoming. He even offer us a home-made Swedish Easter dinner that we really enjoy! This is a property I definetely recommend
I have been living at Nils' for a long time both in this and another room.
The stay was really pleasant as Nils is a wonderful and very friendly host.
The room and facilities (bathroom, kitchen) are nice and clean and Nils is always ready to help in suggestions for sightseeing.
The house is perfectly located at the boundary of a gorgeous natural park with a forest and several lakes, perfect for a relaxing walk.
On the other hand a few minutes walk will take you at the T-Ban station, a few stops away from the city center.
A perfect place to visit Stockholm!
I enjoyed my stay a lot. The house is in good shape, in a nice area and Nils is super friendly. Next time I need a place in Stockholm I am surely going to stay with him again! thank you!
Nice house!! Great host!!! Everything is perfect!!!! Feels like home!!!! Highly recommended!!!!!
This vacation home is excellent and we recommend it highly - the room was cozy and felt almost like home. The room is not very big but perfect as basis for ‚adventures’ in Stockholm. We were able to use all common rooms like the kitchen and a living room. You might even cook your own dishes though you should coordinate that with the other people living there. The breakfirst was rich, almost on a basis like „what do you want…“
It was very quiet as the house borders to a nature preservation area. Though you sometimes can hear airplanes at a distance. Everything was neat and clean. But it should be clear - you are not alone! While we were there another German couple and a German student had been there. We liked that very much (not because they were German…) and this doesn’t differ from other experiences at other private host’s homes.
Our host, Nils, was extremely helpful in every regard and helped us e. g. to get a number of addresses of vegetarian restaurants with rich buffets and addresses for location with spectacular views (if the weather plays along).
Nils even wanted to fulfill on his promise to cook an elk meal. But that didn’t fit into our own schedule.
We were there in December while snow was around. So we were able to do a walk through the preservation area with snow on the ground. It was great. Of course, we didn’t use the nearby lake for swimming… ;-)
Finally - we can agree on everything Nils wrote in his description.
Thank you Nils for being a great host!
Very friendly welcome, German languages, rooms at Ökohaus very large, well maintained and comfortable, as well kitchen and self catering option. Nice communication with roommates, breakfast ingredients individually and plentiful. Environment is very nice for walking, access to public transport making.
Sehr freundlicher Empfang, deutsch-sprachig, Zimmer im Ökohaus sehr großzügig, gepflegt und gemütlich, ebenso Küche und Selbstversorgungmöglichkeit. Nette Kommunikation mit Mitbewohnern, Frühstück Zutaten individuell und reichlich. Umgebung sehr schön zum Spazieren, Anbindung an öffentliche Verkehrsmittel bestens.
A nice, bright and clean room with a beautiful view. The house is quiet and relaxing, we felt like at home here. A great breakfast and we could use the kitchen when we wanted. The house is surrounded by nature and Stockholm city is so close. A kind and helpful host. We can´t imagine a better place to stay in.
The previous review is STRANGE – our experience is the opposite.
This is a lovely B&B. It´s a charming and modern house, in a very clean condition. It is cozy and with a pleasant atmosphere. Calm and quiet. There is a full and delicious Swedish breakfast that had all we could possibly need. There is one nice student in the house we saw on one occasion. And Nils is a generous host always ready to help when we needed. We truly enjoyed our stay here!
Nice surrounding but shabby, old and very dirty house. We had to clean first the badroom....:-(, somebody repaired the roof early in the morning, cheap breakfast and students occupy the kitchen without paying any notice to some breakfastprivacy.
Stockholm is worth to go but not to Nils his place.
The room was small but very clean with a fantastic view. Weather it was to have breakfast on the terrace so we could super start to the day. Stockholm itself was only 5 minutes travel + 11 min subway ride away, and with a 7 day ticket for about 35 € per person. quite inexpensive!
The house is situated in a residential area next to a large wooded area with lake and was able to convince with its location very much.
For breakfast there was everything what we asked Emil (son of Nils) and thus also all very good!
Unfortunately we could not get to know Nile, he was prevented by an accident with the car. Too bad it would have been very pleased!
All in all a very relaxing week!
Das Zimmer war zwar klein aber sehr gepflegt mit einer traumhaften Aussicht. Das Wetter ließ es zu auf der Terrasse zu Frühstücken und so konnten wir super in den Tag starten. Stockholm selbst war nur 5 Min Laufweg + 11 Min U-Bahnfahrt entfernt und mit einem 7 Tageticket für ca 35€pP. recht preiswert!
Das Haus liegt in einer Siedlung direkt an einem großen Waldgebiet mit See und konnte mit seiner Lage sehr überzeugen.
Zum Frühstück gab es alles worum wir Emil (Nils Sohn) gebeten haben und somit auch hier alles sehr gut!
Leider durften wir Nils nicht kennen lernen, da er durch einen Unfall mit dem Auto verhindert war. Schade, es hätte uns sehr gefreut!
Alles in allem eine sehr entspannte Woche!
