Prästgatanett Apartments, Östersund

In Östersund we booked a two bedroom apartment that was well rated. We soon found out why. Prästgatanett Apartments in Östersund are located in a well maintained house from the 1850’s.

The owners live next door and are gentle and charming people who welcomed us and our children to enjoy their lovely garden and hammock. On arrival our daughter ran up stairs and was delighted to discover a black dress hat. She promptly put it on and when we realized that she wanted to wear it to dinner we requested that she ask permission from the owners. They were so charmed that they took photos of her posing in her hat and dress outside the house.

They recommended a hip place for us to eat and chatted with us offering suggestions for what we should do while in Östersund. The apartment is very well located, being just 2 blocks from the main pedestrian centre of town.

The apartment is beautiful with vintage wallpaper, wooden floors, original heaters and vintage furniture and a beautiful old stove. The kitchen had some food that we could use and was fully equipped. It was well insulated and has heaters in each room. I felt like we were staying in a historic house, like the grand old places I visited as a child that date from Australia’s colonial era.

We can definitely recommend this beautiful apartment.
