Cosy and personal-looking studio just next to the bus station. Lovely place for a bookworm and tea lover who wants to stay in a cosy home having the main street and sights just around the corner and the bus and railway stations in a few minutes walk.
In my 36m2 flat there is enough bed places for 3 people: one bed (width: 120cm) is suitable for two and a old wooden sofa bed (width 60 cm) for one) but I have two more extra mattressess (width 80 cm) to put on the floor if needed.
The apartment is quiet as there are no neighbours living in the same floor (street level, windows are to the quiet courtyard). Of course there are people passing by the windows but you can always close the curtains.:)
There are lots of books and magazines in several languages (Finnish, English, French, Russian, Czech, Swedish...) if you like reading. You can also use my dear LP player (I have a small vinyl and cassette collection) and play my guitar if you treat them very well. I also have some board games if you don't feel like going anywhere.
The kitchen is well-equipped (many kettles, pans, plates, cups, bowls, cutlery etc.) and I there are all the basic machines in there: fridge microwave oven, electric kettle, coffee maker, toaster... A big freezer is situated in the main room.
You can use my washing machine+detergent to wash your clothes. I don't have a dryer but my drying rack does the trick.
You can use my big tea selection as well as all the basic spices and cooking stuff that can be found in the kitchen cupboards as well as the self-made yams and chutneys in the fridge.
I don't have access to the building's common sauna but there are three really nice public saunas in Tampere that I highly recommend! Other great sights, lakes, parks and the main street are not far from my home.
You are welcome to all the areas in the apartment exept the small closet in the hallway and the other half of the big wooden wardrobe in in the room.
There are two entrances to the building (as it is a corner house). you can use both entrances with the same key.
Smoking in strictly prohibited in the apartment but there is a designated smoking area in the courtyard by the trash bins.
Общение с гостями
If you'll be staying at my place, it means that I'm probably working or studying abroad. You can still contact me easily by email or phone and I have friends helping you out in Tampere.
- The silence in the building is from 22 to 06, please respect this at the yard, in the stairway as well as in the apartment (eg. not playing music too loud in the evening/night). I've never had any problems with my neighbours and I don't want that in the future either.
- Smoking in prohibited in the apartment (smoking area is otside at the courtyard)
- in Finland we take shoes off in private homes. Please respect this rule. If you are cold, you can borrow woollen socks that are in a basket in the hallway.
- I have lots of old stuff at home (eg. LP's, cassettes; books, musical instruments...), please handle them with care.
