Colorful friendly flat on top floor at The Main square (Stora torget). Our home is surrounded by restaurants, shopping, theater, university faculties, botanical gardens + all the city has to offer. Bike included :) Close to central station

The space

It does not get more central than this. Stora torget - Main Square - is just outside the door. You are right on the walking street and at the other side of the next building is the river with its picturesque atmosphere (see photos).

Your room is facing the back of the building with some lecture halls for the Peace and conflict department of Uppsala university, plus a roof terrace at the second floor.

The flat is a colorful and friendly place and if the weather is nice you can barbecue or just sit and read at the roof terrace. There are only four apartments in the building so the huge terrace is always available.

We provide a healthy self service breakfast which is complimentary/free and includes:

* Organic müesli
* Organic / ecological milk
* Organic / ecological marmalade/jam and Swedish butter
* Healthy bread
* Tea and coffee
* Organic/ eco juice

There are always complimentary sandwiches, tea and coffee whenever you like on the house.

We offer the true Airbnb experience as you will share our home with us as we live here ourselves. We can give tips and advice, share some meals or if you prefer to keep to yourself that is fine too :) If you want your own apartment there are many other Airbnbs in Uppsala. We are on the main square and promise to take good care of you.

Guest access

* You are welcome to borrow one of our bikes during your stay (free off course)

There is bread and marmalade/jam for sandwiches, yogurt and muesli as well as free coffee and tea for you all day and night.

If you would like to keep some things in the fridge, like soft drinks or extra stuff for breakfast that is fine.


- We'll be glad to invite you to share a (probably vegetarian) meal or two with us if we are at home :)

* You are also welcome to barbecue on the roof terrace

* There is a laundry room with an ironing board in the basement free of charge.
(please tell us in advance and we'll book it for you)

Interaction with guests

We are more than happy to show you around town or go on a bike tour along the river
(just check with us first to make sure we'll be home).

If you want tips about what to do just tell us :) We know the city and its surroundings quite well.

* If you rather be left alone, just inform us and that is fine too and we will just welcome you and be there if you have any questions :)

Other things to note

* We provide bed linnen, towels, shampoo, shower creme and there is a hair dryer to borrow if you need one :)

* The bed is 90 cm wide and 200 cm long

* High speed Wifi 30-64 GB/sec

* We have one more room which we rent out so there might be one more guest staying with us at the time. Please check with us if that is a concern to you

* We do not have a microwave nor a dishwasher

* In Sweden house keys are governed by a system so they cannot be copied which means that if you loose your key they whole cylinder has to be changed and new keys made. This is the same everywhere in Sweden so even if you find your own place eventually keep this in mind since changing locks costs around two thousand - SEK.

* The tap water is drinkable

This was my first AirBnB experience and it was so great that I think it will be hard for me to find future AirBnBs that will come anywhere close to being as good. The pre-visit communication with Maja and David was excellent and I received responses to my queries very quickly (usually within the hour). They were able to answer all the queries I had before booking and provided me with all the information that I requested. Just before my visit they made sure I had all their contact details and arranged to meet me at the bus stop from the airport to show me the way to their home. This AirBnB is a room within Maja and David's own home and prior to the visit they made sure that I had understood this, which I had. From the moment I arrived they made me feel exceptionally welcome. They showed me my room and all the facilities, including use of a bicycle for the week which was a wonderful way to get around the local area. They had provided personal shelves for my things in the bathroom and the fridge, and there was plenty of clothes storage/hanging space in my room. On the large desk in my room there was a personalised welcome letter from David and Maja and an information book about the home, which included the wifi details, access codes and other information such as the location of the laundry room. They also provided several tourist leaflets of things to do in the local area. The bed was extremely comfortable and they offered me a selection of pillows of different firmness. The wifi connection was fast and reliable. David and Maja provided ample food for preparing breakfast and sandwiches for lunch if I chose too. The food was fresh, plentiful and good quality, including organic muesli, various fruit, bread, cheese, milk, yogurt, juice and jam. An amazing variety of teas and coffee was also available. I also noticed that once I had finished something it was replaced within the day. Not only did Maja and David provide breakfast/lunch food for me to prepare, they also invited me to have dinner with them on several occasions. This really sums up the genuinely friendly people that they are. They got the balance of giving me my personal space and involving me in the household perfectly. Nothing seemed too much bother and I'm extremely grateful for everything they did for me. I look forward to seeing them again in the future and would always look to stay here again when I return to Uppsala. I would recommend this AirBnB to anyone 100%.

I highly recommend this place. The room was large and confortable, the flat really nice, and the breakfast also good. More than that, the two host Maja and David are really kind and friendly. I'm greatful for their hospitality but also for the time they spent to help me and recommend me in this new town. I discover many aspects cultural and practical for living here and for futur trips in Sweden. Last point, i feel also free to spend time alone, and i enjoy the moments of warmth. According to me, they are great persons and super roommate !

Maja & David are the most friendly hosts. Whenever you stay in their home they make any effort to ensure you feel welcome, happy and you have everything you need for a pleasant stay. I'm so happy that whenever I visit Uppsala, I can stay at their place, they truly make it feel like a second home :-)

Maja and David are the most kind hosts, and staying with them was a real pleasure. The apartment is very comfortable, clean and tidy and they make you feel extremely welcome during your stay. The apartment is centrally located and the ability to borrow a bike is really useful! In addition to being v helpful when I arrived late on a Sunday, Maja and David did everything to make my stay enjoyable; they even cooked dinner one evening and took me sightseeing. I would strongly recommend this as a place to stay in Uppsala!

Maja and David are two genuinely lovely, kind, and inquisitive people. From my first hours in Uppsala, they made me feel comfortable and welcome in their home. They were keen to discuss a variety of topics and help me not only see the beautiful town of Uppsala but also get a fantastic view of life in Sweden. They're just absolutely wonderful people and I'd highly recommend staying with them. It goes without saying, the accommodation is excellent.

Maja and David are the type of people who are so hospitable and generous that they must make friends everywhere they go around the world. Certainly I would invite them to stay at my own home--as guests, not Airbnb customers--any time! The apartment is exactly as described, and is lovely and homey. Maja and David provide breakfast and other foods, and a bike for guest use, which was fantastic for me. Essentially, they appear to think, "What could a guest in our home possibly need?" and then provide it! They also communicate very clearly the basic rules, where guests may place their things, and so on. I would be happy to return to Maja and David's home.

Maja and David were excellent hosts! I felt very welcome and we had a lot of fun and good conversations during dinner :) The location couldn't be better either.
