Pinja is an old hotel, so all the rooms are exceptionally well equipped. The rooms include an individual bathroom with a toilet, a small “minibar” refrigerator and a microwave. There is a small grocery store next to the building and all the services of the city center are available just a few steps away. This location is mainly for international exchange students.

The location will operate as a summer hotel during the summer.  NOTE! There is a restaurant in the ground floor of the building, that may cause some noise disturbance to some rooms. This is taken into account in the rents of those rooms.  The restaurant has a terrace in the inner yard patio, it will be open in the spring and in the fall, so some noise will be heard from the area to the apartments. Due to the central location and restaurant/bar noises, the location is not recommended for students looking for the most peaceful building, nor for families with children. The rooms are rented for fixed period and the tenancy agreements will end either on 31 December or 31 May. The rooms will be normally rented from August 15th onwards. The location operates as a summer hotel (summer hotel Aurora) from June to the middle of August.

You can apply Pinja’s studio apartments with shared kitchen by filling an application for a furnished room.
