We have some apartments with an armchair that opens up into an extra single bed and others with a sofa that opens to become a double bed. This is written in the apartment descriptions while booking and in your booking confirmation. Remember to tell us the correct number of guests so we can prepare the extra beds for you!
We do not have apartments with twin beds, but most of our apartments can sleep people in two separate beds using the main bed and the armchair/sofa bed.
Some of the apartments have private saunas. You will see if the apartment has one in the online descriptions while booking and also in your booking information. There are instructions in the sauna on how to operate it.

No. It is a metal coloured french press and should not be placed on the stove. Boil up some water with the electric kettle and pour it into the french press over some coffee and then place it on a cork pot mat.
The ones in the apartment are not for sale. You can, however, buy them directly from the artist and supplier: http://tuulisaarelainen.com/ and Dopp er.
First, make sure all the windows are closed. Running the AC with open windows is bad for the environment and will break the machine. To adjust the temperature, gently press the “plus” and “minus” buttons on the control panel. To adjust fan speed gently press the “fan” button and choose a speed: A – for automatic (and Bob’s fave), which maintains your chosen temperature and is the most eco-friendly. Or a number from 0 (Fan off) to 3 (Fastest speed).
You can access MyFitness Balti Jaama Turg in our Telliskivi neighbourhood, in the basement of the “Balti Jaam” market building.

Once on the dark blue line, you’ll exit at ‘Tribunal’ station, then walk 3 minutes to Bob W.
Taxi: There’s a fixed rate of 30 euros to go from the airport to the city centre. Tell the taxi driver to take you to the address Calle Fuencarral 45.

You can also use our Google Chromecast device to watch media from your device on the TV. Chromecast is already installed on the TV, just follow these instructions if you need help.
