Tomas and Katri's apartment is the perfect place to stay in Helsinki - it's both stylish and homely, a short walk to the city centre, has plenty going on in the local neighbourhood and has everything you need. Katri went out of her way to help me fix a problem with my computer when I was staying there, which I really appreciated. I'd definitely recommend this place and its hosts!
Great place to stay in Helsinki! Apartament is very cozy and nice. Recommended.
I had a warm welcom from their mother. She showed me around answered all questions and motivated some ares to visit.
The appartment gives you the space you like. The way they have decoreated it, is light minimalistic and therefor perfect for a traveler (like me).
The house was clean and provide space for my stuff.
The bathroom is ok, although the bath/shower is a challenge. It's a kind of a bath/sit/shower like an h-shape. The floor is too smaal to stand safely, while the 'seat' is too high to take a shower.
Neighbourhood is very nice. Nice little restaurants, furniture-shops, books etc. A variety.
I walked to the centre every day via a different route. So much to experience.
When I come back to Helsinki, I will definitely try to get this place again.
Very nice place, clean, warm, comfortable Mahendiran just like staying @ home.
Very good location with 5 mins working to supermarket and taking tram 3 directly to down town.
Will for sure come back and stay if visit Helsinki in the coming month/year.
The Apartment is spacious, comfortable, delightful.
The Hosts were very helpful with all my questions.
We will be staying here again if ever in Helsinki. A beautiful small city and the most convenient location to stay in! So close to the trams, the sea, the bakery with coffee 3 doors down! We were busy working during our stay so the comfort of the flat to retreat to in the evenings was important. The flat itself is well designed and beautifully white. Fun design pieces of furniture everywhere and loads of light. Good burgers across the street at a quiet pub. Katri's mum met us at the flat and gave us keys etc. All very easy and comfortable. We had no problems.
Quiet and peaceful, comfortable place. Recommended.
Tomas and Katri's apartment is position perfect, walking distance to absolutely everywhere. Helsinki is a small city and even though I bought a travel card I only caught the tram two or three times. Directly across the road is a great restaurant called Lungberg, a small supermarket and the tram round the corner, and a big supermarket and alcohol store (and the ferry to Tallinn) less than ten minutes away.
Katri's mother Arja gave me a warm welcome (early on a Sunday) and gave me my bearings. The apartment was spacious and very comfortable. I felt I was in a home rather than just a house without feeling I was living with someone else's clutter. The place is spacious and warm; I don't know how the heating works but it seemed to come on when I needed it!
The only things I'd mention for future guests are: (1) for me the bed was too soft, but that's a personal preference; (2) the shower is odd - pressure and temperature are fine but the shower base is like a mini-bath on two levels. I found it impossible to shower without having my feet on two different 'steps'. On the same note, to get into the shower you have to climb over the side of the 'bath' which comes up to the height of your crotch. A step is provided. (3) The washing machine is a combined washer/dryer. As these take a while (and a lot of energy) to dry, I preferred to hang my pieces in the bathroom.
In summary, a great place. Perfectly positioned, great communication, recommended!
We had a fantastic and wonderful stay at Katri &Tomas's,the apartment is is a great location,about 20 minute walk to Helsinki Centre or a 5 minute walk to the nearest tram stop which then takes 5-10 minutes to the Centre.The apartment itself is just fantastic,very modern and stylish with all the amenities you could ask for
We arrived after a very long flight from Perth Western Australia on an early flight at 6.30 am and Katri's mum Arja was wonderful and met us at the apartment early, we also had a midnight flight home and again Arja allowed us to check out late so we didn't have to drag our luggage around for the day..........
We enjoyed stay in Helsinki so much we are already planning a return trip,and if Katri's and Thomas's apartment is available we would love to stay there again......
I highly recommend a stay here to anyone wishing to experience the wonders of Helsinki...
Thank you Katri,Thomas and Arja,hopefully see you again real soon.........
Tomas and Katri's place is fantastic. They're in a great location. They have a big, comfy king size bed and a super comfortable big couch.
