Want to stay in one of the best locations in central Helsinki? This is a bright and distinctive 1 bedroom apartment in Punavuori, a trendy district offering many small shops, cafes and restaurants.
My apartment has everything you need when staying in Helsinki.
Bedroom with a double bed, well equipped kitchen and bright bathroom with a shower and a cozy bath tub.
Shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and the detergents for the dishwasher and the laundry machine are complimentary.
The apartment was fully renovated in 2012, excluding the bathroom which was renovated in 2015.
There are many good cafes, restaurants, shops and other services close by. Check out Design District Helsinki! Have some drinks by the sea! Go for a picnic! Happy to give you tips what to do and where to go!
Tram line 3 and bus lines 14, 17 and 18 have a stop called Viiskulma right around the corner.
If you arrive to the Central Railway Station the easiest way to get to my place is taking tram line 3 towards Olympiaterminaali. The single ride tickets can be bought from a ticket machine or from the driver and they cost about 3 euros. You may want to buy a 1-7 day ticket which allows you to travel as much as you want with the trams, buses and metro. Just look for a kiosk called R-Kioski to buy your day ticket!
Parking in central Helsinki isn't free. On my street it costs 2 euros per hour during the weekdays from 9am to 9pm. During the weekends and in the night time it's free.
Other Things to Note
Tab water is drinkable. Remember to close the water tab for dishwasher and washing machine when you are not using them.
My partner and I had a great stay in Harri's appartement. Harri is friendly, very flexible and communicative. He always replied very fast and also checked later if everything still was alright. We agreed to pick up the key from a nearby bar, but our flight was delayed and the bar was closed. Fortunately, he checked our arrival time and didn't go to sleep yet, but brought a spare key, so we could get in :-) What can I say about the apartment? It's very modern and cosy. It's very light, because of the light colors and the big windows. It's close to the centre with shops and restaurants around the corner, but you hardly hear anything from the street, when the windows are closed. The kitchen is well equipped. It's has a very good espresso machine and a big fridge. We could also connect our iPhone to the sound system, so we could hear our own Spotify music list in the whole flat, even in the bathroom. In short: we had a great time. Thanks!
Harri was an awesome host! The apartment was within walking distance of the centre making it a perfect place for a short stay in Helsinki.
Me and my wife are so happy to have picked Harri's place to stay in our trip. The flat is very clean and cozy. It looks pretty much exactly the same to the pictures and only better. Things are all tidy and are in the right place ready to use. We feel comfortable and very safe to stay in the flat.
The location is easy to access from city centre and there are quite a few unique boutique in the area.
Harri is always in touch with us from the time we plan to stay and to the time we leave. He provided lots of useful info for our stay. We couldn't thank him enough :)
We were two people and spent a weekend at Harri's place.
Even though we did not have the chance to meet Harri in person, he arranged everything with great detail, so as we could feel as if we were at home.
We were able to communicate at all time, either by phone, airbnb website or the contat person designated by him.
The apartment was nice, comfortable and convenient (despite of the bathroom and stairway renovation going on). Just what we needed.
Furthermore, he gave us good tips about what to do, where to go, or how to move around Helsinki.
El apartamento se corresponde a las fotos y al anuncio. Barrio bonito, buena posición a unos pocos minutos andando del centro.
El apartamento es perfecto para dos personas, aunque también caben tres (la tercera duerme en el sofá, cómodo pero no lo mejor para personas altas). Muy limpio, todo nuevo, bonito, acogedor, y con una hermosa terraza que da muchísima luz!
Harri opened his schedule up for my arrival, which took longer than expected, but Harri was very flexible and patient. When I finally arrived, he showed me around his BEAUTIFUL apartment and even gave me a welcome gift of tasty Finnish chocolate!
This apartment was very nice. Perfectly located within walking distance to city centre. It was clean, and had all the things you need for a good stay. Harri was very responsive and a perfect host. I would highly recommend this place.
Love to travel in Finland and abroad. Home is a special place for me and therefore I try to put an effort making it as nice as possible.
