It's fairly old fashion, there's more linoleum than aluminium, 50's wood panels on some walls, old cracked bathroom tiles etc. It might not be too modern, but it's clean and fairly tidy.
The apartment is the second floor of a house in a quiet residential neighbourhood called Sinsen, north of the city center. There's a 5x5 meter southward facing terrace connected to the apartment, nice for sunbathing or breakfasts. There is also bit of a view of the city from there.
There are 2 budget food shops within 5 minutes walk of house. There's roughly a 6 kilometer walk to the city center, but we take the bus or the subway from the Sinsen station. The bus and subway station is a 5 minute walk away. Buses run every 10-15 minutes, the subway every 7-8 minutes. It takes about 10 minutes by subway or 15 minutes by bus to the city center.
