About this listing

Rooms in a 100 years old villa, overlooking the historical fortress Fredriksten. The house is situated in a quiet residential area with beautiful old houses, picket fences and apple orchards. There is only a five minutes’ walk to the center of Halden

The space

The rooms are on the 1st floor above ground floor. There is one bedroom with a double bed and one with a single bed, and kitchen and bathroom with shower and toilets. The house is old and full of ambience and all the rooms are newly renovated and welcoming.

The house owners, Siri and Marcus, will assist with guiding and will be helpful with such as ticket reservations for events as the rock-festival “Kanonrock”, Opera Østfold, “Allsang på grensen" (“sing’along at the border”), or one of the many events at the Fredrikshalds Theater, Brygga cultural hall, the Rød Herregård cafe, Bryggerhuset Syd, and much more. They will assist in providing fishing licenses to a renowned salmon river, suggest good eating and drinking places, or they can recommend a good book that can be read in the living room while enjoying the view.

There is free parking in the street outside the house.
25 minutes to drive to Rygge Airport
1 hour and 20 minutes to Oslo
2 hours to Gardermoen Airport
2 hours to Gothenburg
10 minutes to Svinesund (Swedish border)

In other words, Halden is in a very central location, only 5 minutes by car from the main road E6. There are train and bus connections to Oslo, Gothenburg and other cities in Østfold.

We will assist with pickup at Halden train station by appointment.

The distance to the Norwegian and Swedish archipelago is short, and both Hvaler and Bohuslän are in close proximity. Not to forget the historical fjord Iddefjorden that is just a stone's throw away. All this, as well as the rivers, canals and lakes of the Haldenvassdraget and Northern Europe's highest locks, Brekke locks, Rød Herregård and the already mentioned Fredriksten fortress, can be easily reached from this location.

A nice apartment on 2nd floor in an elderly villa. Lots of nice villas in a quiet and peaceful part of Halden. Authentic interior and furniture. Clean and friendly athmosphere, with all the equipment you need for a small family. A nice view of the fortress from the living room window. The hosts are very friendly and service minded! Great value! We highly recommend staying at "A room with a view", and would love to come back!

Siri was very welcoming, greeted us and gave us some advice on where to eat. The apartment is as described, plenty of room and good kitchen and bathroom. Everything was very clean, and the wifi worked well.

Siri and Marcus are very very nice and kind people! Their house is very comfortable and interesting. The appartment is the upper floor of their house and it has a well equipped kitchen. You can find everything there, for example salt! It is rare to find seasoning in Airbnb's. I strongly recommend this appartment to all of you.

Siri was a wonderful host! Already before our stay she was very helpful with organizing a possibility to rent bikes and sending links that helped us with the planning of our activities in Halden. The flat was very tidy and decorated charmingly. It's definitely a place one would love to stay for a couple of days! You can tell that hosting people is done with love. It seems like Siri already thought of all things you might be in need of. There are even spare toothbrushes.
