This is a homey Guest House where breakfast is included in the price.

We are a 7-min walk from Bergåsa railway station, Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH), and the Hospital.
The Library is a bright and cozy (11 m2) room for 1-2 people: vacationers, biz people, academics or hospital staff.
We are 75 m away from a morning dip in the sea and Västra Mark running trails.

If you need another single or double for your travel party, please book: Gefion Guest House - The Stig Lindberg Room.

The space

It is a bright room, which welcomes the first rays of the morning sun. The bed-sofa has an 80 cm-wide mattress. The underside of the sofa can be pulled out and made into a 160 cm wide double bed (when sleeping 2). The room is however best suited for one person. There is a closet to hang your clothes, a 1940s' style work desk, and an armchair for reading in; after all, this is the Library; we have nine bookshelves full of fiction and other books. Please, feel welcome to immerse yourself in our world of literature! We have made six shelves available for you to keep your things on.

Guest access

You have shared access to the shower/bathroom and the kitchen, as well as the lounge and the laundry facilities. In the summer-time, you can relax in the garden. But, please do not smoke anywhere!

Interaction with guests

Just ask if you need anything. We speak both Swedish and English. We can recommend places to eat and visit.

Other things to note

A self-serve vegetarian breakfast is included. With advance notice, we can cater for gluten-free, lactose-free diets and even meat-eaters ;). We supply ingredients for hot and cold breakfast on a separate shelf in our fridge. On weekends - if in the mood - we sometimes don the apron and cook up something special.
You can help yourself to coffee and teas 24/7 in the dining room.
We have lots of wood floors - so please no shoes inside!
Please note that this is not suitable for long-term stays for adults with children.
We have a strict no smoking policy - inside as well as directly outside our house, so if you are a smoker, this is probably not a good place for you, sorry!
We work hard to recycle everything - so please read our instructions about recycling carefully. They are on the laminated info sheet provided in the guest room. If unsure, please ask.

Staying at the Gefion Guest House was a lovely experience. I enjoyed the hosts, Jessica and Neil and the room was a great space to rest and do some work. I highly recommend staying here! I would surely stay here again and recommend it to friends and family who come to visit.

I thought this was an excellent AirBnB! It was warm and cosy with lots of personal details (fresh flowers in my room - so nice), and with an included breakfast, I thought it was good value for the price asked. I love swimming, so I was very happy that it was just a couple of minutes walk to the beach. The place was also very easy to get to - I could take a train directly from Copenhagen and get off at Bergåsa station, and walk for a few minutes to the house. Jessica and Neil were very friendly and helpful, and seemed to know a lot about the area. I would strongly recommend this AirBnB!
