Gunilla's reviewsAs a host (14)
“We had a wonderful stay at Gunilla's place in Stockholm. Her place is located in the charming old town and is beautifully maintained and thoughtfully decorated. We loved the natural light, Gunilla's artwork and the many helpful guides and tips she left for us. We were pleasantly surprised that the place is even more spacious and comfortable than the photos showed. We highly recommend staying here and would be thrilled to do so again.”

“Gunilla and Bengt are wonderful hosts. Their house is beautiful and typical, fulfilled with stunning furniture and set in the most beautiful spot in Stockholm. We found lots of book and travel tips they left for use to appreciate even more our holiday in Sweden. We felt like home all the time ”
“We received a wonderfully warm welcome from Bengt when we arrived at his and Gunilla’s fabulous apartment in the heart of Gamla Stan. We were delighted to make this characterful and comfortable apartment our home for four nights. It was light, airy and spacious as well as being in the most perfect location for our first visit to Stockholm. Gunilla and Bengt were very generous and hospitable and we look forward to reciprocating in NZ next year.”
“Beautiful apartment excellently located in Gamla Stan. Spacious and bright. Even better than pictures suggest. Excellent communication and a pleasure to meet Bengt and Gunilla. Top class.”
“Great location lovely space with excellent facilities ”
“Gunilla & Bengt have a beautiful apartment which is perfectly located for a trip to Stockholm. The apartment is very comfortable and cosy. Right in the centre of the Old Town and close to lots of bars, restaurants and culture. G&B are perfect hosts, making sure we had everything we needed and great communication before and during our stay. 5 stars!”
“We enjoyed a brilliant and truly memorable three weeks in Gunnila and Bengt’s stunning, 500 year old apartment in Gamla Stan in the heart of Stockholm’s Old Town. Gunnila’s daughter Sophie kindly welcomed us to the apartment and was most helpful telling us about how things worked, where to visit and what to see locally. The location is perfect as it is very close to the Royal Palace, Opera House, museums, many churches and numerous cafes, restaurants and bars which are right on the doorstep. The narrow snow-covered streets, cozy cafes, and little village squares are truly delightful to walk around. It is ideal for anyone interested in opera, classical music, or choral works which can be enjoyed in the nearby opera house as well as in the free lunchtime and evening concerts held in many of the surrounding churches. The central part of Stockholm is also only a short 10 minute walk away.The apartment is extremely charming, full of character, and furnished with gorgeous antique furniture, chandeliers, and art works. We loved the kitchen and the coffee machine, the original wooden floor boards, sunny living room and the nice warm comfortable bed. We felt very relaxed there – spoilt too. It was a pleasure to return each day to such a nice warm, cozy home after being out for the day in -20C temperatures and snow. Truly a home away from home! Gunnila and Bengt are wonderful, warm and generous hosts and we felt very lucky to be able to spend a delightful short time together in Brisbane on their arrival, and also in Stockholm on the day we left to return home. We would love to catch up with them again and highly recommend their charming home in Gamla Stan. ”
“Our stay at Gunilla's and Bengt's apartment was fantastic! We felt so lucky to be able to stay in the heart of Gamla Stan, with all of the beautiful buildings and history around us. The area is beautiful at all times of the day! And the apartment couldn't be nicer. It was furnished with nice antiques and beautiful chandeliers and artwork to be fitting with its history, but yet it was so comfortable and easy to live in (and the bed and pillows were very comfortable!). Gunilla and Bengt are wonderful people that we really enjoyed meeting. They gave us good recommendations for things to do, which added to our enjoyment of Gamla Stan. We loved going to the opera, only a short walk away. Everything was within walking distance because of its central location. We felt really lucky to be able to share their part of Gamla Stan. Thanks, Gunilla and Bengt!”
“We felt very welcome by Sofie. Communication was top! They helped us with our questions. The apartment is super located, in the old city. The apartment is spacious and bright. The only minor are the pillows, they are ready for replacement. But overall it was a lovely experience! Thank you so much!!!”
“The apartment is located in a charming and easily accessible part of Stockholm's old town. The hosts were welcoming and attentive starting in preparation of the trip to the moment when I left the city. Staying at the Humble's family house was a wonderful and unforgettable experience. ”
“I stayed for a week here off-season. Lovely and very spacious pad in old part of town with buzz of restaurants, cafes, shops and museums nearby. On the tourist track yet tucked out the way. Treats are the expresso coffee machine and warm floor of the wet room with super shower. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Recommended.”
Where is it?
The old medieval town center of Stockholm (Gamla Stan) is full of interesting sites, museums and busy restaurants and cafes.
its buzzing with life during days but also magic during evenings when you can stroll the alleys and look up into the apartments and see old panels and roofs inside the apartments. Stockholm has around 80 museums and lots of good music at the Opera, Berwald hall and the Concert hall.
All Swedes are quite friendly and god at speaking english so you can ask for tips anywhere and to anyone.
We recommend you to take the Stockholm Ghost Walk in Old Town since its both interesting, scary and great fun!
Museums in Gamla Stan: The Royal Palace, the Nobel Museum, Museum of Medieval Stockholm. All museums are in Swedish and English.
Some museums of interest at Djurgården (available by ferry five minutes away from our flat) could be the famous ABBA museum which is great fun and interactive. The museum of Wasa: Swedens biggest failure in medieval time since the ship sank after only five minutes at sea! The Viking museum. Skansen outdoor museum. The museum of Liqour and many more.
Its also nice to take a roundtrip by the sightseeing boat and look at Stockholm from the water.
Five minutes walk to Södermalm which is the home to all Swedish hipsters. Look cool and stay trendy!
