The SpaceThis apartment is located on the outskirts of the city center, in a lovely 1940's building (basement floor). Everything you might need can be found within a short walk from home.
If you're too tired to go out, I'm sure you'll enjoy your night in too! The apartment is delightfully decorated and has a lovely river view. You can watch TV and movies, read books and magazines, play Playstation 3 or cook a delicious dinner. Of course there's also high-speed internet.
The space may not be new and shiny, but it is most definitely cute, clean and comfortable. It is ideal for a single traveler or couple, but can accommodate up to three guests.
There's a double loft bed (120 x 200 cm, please note that this is a bit smaller that a regular double bed). If you are uncomfortable with the idea of a loft bed, I can set up the bed/mattress downstairs (see picture). An air bed (100 x 200 cm) can be set up on the floor as needed.
In the apartment you'll also find:
- closet space for storing your things
- a coffee maker
- a toaster
- an electric kettle
- a microwave
- a hair dryer
- shampoo, conditioner and soap
- towels and linens
- a PS3 with games
- a DVD and Blu-ray player and a movie library
- books to read (you can also exchange books, if you want to take one home!)
- a feeding chair and potty by request Guest AccessThe apartment has 24 m2 and is located on the first (basement) floor.
The building has a small, well kept common backyard with some garden furniture, a swing set and a sand box. There's also a common roof deck with a barbecue grill and nice city views!
There's a laundry room in the building that needs to be booked in advance (a small fee applies). If you want to do laundry on the day you arrive, just let me know and I will book it for you. Interaction with GuestsI live currently in Helsinki. If I'm in Jyväskylä and available, I'm happy to meet you at the apartment when you arrive. If I'm not able to be there, I will tell you where you can pick up the key when you arrive. I'm always available via airbnb chat (preferred) and telephone. I will be happy to help you before and during your stay. The NeighborhoodThe apartment is located in the central area, but very close to Tourula and Lutakko. Getting AroundThe apartment is easy to reach, whether you arrive by train, bus, plane or car.
The train station and long distance buses are a short walking distance away. A bus stop for local buses is just outside the building.
From airport you can either take a taxi or a bus to the center (approx. 20 minutes).
There are a few parking spots for guests that you can use for free with a parking permit. There are almost always spots available, but if there's none, you might have to leave the car a bit further and/or pay for parking. Other Things to NoteWhen using the extra beds:
I normally set everything else up, but won't put the air bed on the floor (unless the guests arrive late at night). This is to offer you the comfort of extra space in the relatively small apartment. The air mattress fills up automatically.
If you don't need that much floor space and would rather have the extra beds prepared ready for you, please let me know and I'll be happy to set them up. :)
