Welcome to Krepelin

On this page, we have collected information on everything we have been asked over the years.

If you can’t find the answer here, please call +358 400 987 978 and we’ll find out!

Check in, keys and parking

Check in and get your keys in the second floor of the yellow main building where we have our reception. Call us if you don’t see us right away, we’re anyway not far: +358 400 987 978.

Coming by car? Set “Läntinen Pitkäkatu 8, Kristiinankaupunki” as the destination as the entrance to our yard by car is from there. There is place for three cars right next to the main gate on the left, but you can also park in front of the main building.

If our yard is full, you can leave your car on any street flanking our lot. There’s no parking control in the town so you can park your car on any street you want.


We can recommend the following restaurants. The first three can be found in Market Square. The square is 50 meters to the right when you enter the street that runs in front of the yellow main building.

Jungman: located at the waterfront, right by the bridge. The two-story yellow-white house. Local, elegant and tasty food. The menu changes depending on the season. In the summer, a terrace and always sea views. On weekdays, a two-course lunch at the standing table, at other times a la carte. jungman.fi

Crazy Cat: You can find it in the market square on the left when you look from the top of market to the waterfront. Steak-pizza-burger-style food in a darkish, cellar-like setting. crazycat.fi

Gastro: on the top of the market square. The style is between Jungman and Crazy Cat. On weekdays there’s a buffet lunch, a la carte at other times. Krsgastro.fi

Cafe A Piece of Cake: coffee, cakes and local delicacies. See their Facebook-page.

Light lunch and cafe is also available at our neighbours Eleonora Bed & Breakfast on Läntinen Pitkäkatu 15.

Breakfast and groceries

Our concept is: “Your home away from home”, which means that we don’t serve breakfast like they do at hotels. However, each apartment has its own kitchen, where you can prepare breakfast at your own convenience. Kitchen cabinets are stocked with organic coffee, tea, oatmeal and muesli, which you can freely use. Please let us know if any of these are out of stock and we’ll fill the cabinets.

Fresh produce can be bought in K-Supermarket Selleri on Merikatu street 4. It is 500 meters from Krepelin to the watefront.

For an additional fee (10 EUR / person), we can bring a breakfast packet of bread, cold cuts, yogurt, juice and fruit into your apartment’s refrigerator before you arrive. You can inquire this also afterwards and we’ll do our best to fulfill it.

In addition, a warm buffet breakfast is available from late May to late August in Eleonora Bed & Breakfast just opposite of us on the Läntinen Pitkäkatu 15 for 14 EUR per person from 8 to 10 AM.

The Crazy Cat restaurang in the market place and Eleonora can also arrange breakfast at other times for groups if you contact them in advance.


In the summertime, check out is by 12 noon so we can clean up before the next guests. There is more flexibility during the wintertime, so let us know your wishes when you check-in.


Our sauna is free of charge with a room booking, otherwise, it costs 10 EUR / person / 4 hours.

Our sauna has an electric stove and is located at the end of the building row on the right when you standing back to the main building. You can request a sauna at any time during your stay.

Our sauna has been selected on the list of Visit Finland‘s “Top Finnish Saunas” campaign that is targeted for Japanese tourists. More about that here.


We have bicycles for rent for free. They can be found on the bike rack at the end of the Bakery, the first red building on the right as you stand in front of the yellow main building.

You can borrow bikes whenever you see them, and there is no booking system. Use as long as you want and return.

Here in Kristinestad you don’t need to lock the wheels so you can park and leave them freely anywhere. 🙂

Sights, shopping, nature, museums

Downstairs on the porch of the main building is a small table with walking maps. But basically: everything worth seeing five blocks to every direction from Krepelin so just start walking and you can’t miss them.

The Tourist Information Office can be found on Merikatu street #49. There you will find more detailed information about the town, its surroundings and service opening hours: visitkristinestad.fi.
