We stayed at this fantastic place in may 2012. The owners Ella and Martin has renovated an old pension to a fantastic place. They are wonderful hosts and truly friendly and helpful. The guesthouse has lots of atmosfere, all rooms has toilet and showers and if you are interested in old motorbikes they will show you their renovated Indian bikes. We even borrowed the key to the medivial chursh nearby, to visit. If in Åland, don´t miss this place! You can have your dinner at the lokal brewery close to Kvarnbo.
Everything about the place!
Great spot on the western shore of the main island of Aland, near the village of Eckerö. Own beach, just across the small access road that links this camping and a few more campings (and huts for rent) to the main road. Simple but good facilities, including a cafe and sauna.
Seaside location! Nice beach, good facilities, several sites nearby (Eckerö postal museum, wildlife park), 10 minutes from the ferry to Sweden.
This guesthouse is not far from the harbour,you can walk there but we took a taxi because we had many luggages --- cost only 4 euro. The rooms are equipped with made beds, towels and wash-basins but the showers and toilets are in the hall-way. it costs 91 euro exclude breakfast but it has microwave and some kitchen ware.
When we arrived , nobody's there but we got a welcome note and it had a coin for you to call them if you want anything.
If you're looking for a site that's simple and well-run but has everything you really need - including your own fjord at the end of the site - look no further than Kattnas. It's in a quiet area but still quite near Eckero and the main road to Mariehamn.
I can't really remember the prices but I remember we slept well ! The place was very quiet. And we could even leave our bags in a little room next to the reception, while doing our bike tour, the next morning.
The island of Jurmo, in the far northeast of the archipelago, has a hostel. Very few people know about it, and the guest book is not very long. I was the farthest guest from home. The rooms are standard hostel fare. The keys are fixed to a cork via a smoked rope, which is awesome if you love smoky stuff. The price is 20€, but more if you don't have sheets.
If you haven't booked ahead, just ask at the small kiosk at the harbour. The hostel is actually in the red schoolhouse at the end of the street, and the proprietor lives in the red house opposite the kiosk.
We found it quite difficult to make telephone contact, although the proprietor spoke good English when we did. He is often not about and his parents have far more limited English.
Reasonable equipment, two hotplates and fridge in our room. It was notionally for four but a family would have felt cramped. Breakfast was not provided.
More suitable with car or cycle [available for hire locally] than for foot-dependent pensioners like us.
Well located for good signed walks and close to the church. The painting on wood shown in the photo is from the 13/14th century ruins of the Franciscan Chapel next to the church.
Position is really everything here.
This was a Gasthem in Åland. The main building with rooms for 1, 2, 3, or 4 people is a bit like a hostel with B&B but there are also a number of annexes and chalets. Everything is set in woodland near the sea and the path by the shore is adorned by a terrific display of wild flowers.
It is only a quarter of an hour walking from the centre of Mariehamn, the island capital. As you get nearer to the town, the forest gradually changes to parkland but the children's facilites seem to gain by their informality, spread out and unsigned.
Back to the buildings! The breakfast is more than adequate and includes as much cona coffee as you want. The manager, Bror Boman, is very friendly and speaks very good English. The chalets are adequately and simply equipped with cooking and eating pots and cutlery, microwave oven, two hotplates and fridge.. Warm water showers in all chalets.
Its proximity to the Baltic, its natural surroundings and supurb wild flowers and its extreme friendliness were all very memorable.
We spent 2 rainy nights & days in one of these - it was ok. It depends of course, what kind of expetations you have, but felt good to wake up in the morning & step onto wet grass:)) Warm water costed 1 euro/5 minutes...
This hotel is the best if you want your hotel to be situated near the sea and everything should be accessible from there on walking distance.
This hotel is just infront of Viking & Silja line Ship companies harbour. so, you would have no problems to catch your ship in time.
